I forgot to mention:
A lot of these "green" beauty tips, and countless variations of them, are now commonly found on the Internet. That may be why the book was at an overstock outlet.
However, if you find a good formula or two, try posting it under the "My Thrifty Tip Of The Day" thread.

In the "My Thrifty Tip..." thread, there's a link to a whole page of DIY formulas to make your own spa-type toiletry items for yourself or to give as gifts.

Thanks.
I will keep my eyes open for it.
I have never heard of Ollie's. It must not be in my area.

Sound interesting, I will have to check it out. The other great thing is that it is not tested on animals. I quit using P&G, J&J products because of it. Thanks for posting emoticon

CONSISTENCY IS KEY, WATER IS ESSENTIAL!

You only fail if you quit trying.

I can be brave when learning or trying something new
I shall be bold by pushing myself to the next level
I can be fierce by being determined in setting my goals and reaching them
I shall give a full 100% of me and feel FABULOUS about the woman I am

Most of you probably know many ways to use homemade beauty recipes but I found a book "The Green Beauty Guide" at Ollie's which is an overstock store. The author is Julie Gabriel. It has some really good recipes to make for skin care which I didn't know about. You can also web search recipes. She does list recommended products if you choose to purchase them but the homemade recipes are commonly things from the kitchen and minimal purchases like jojoba oil and such. I have been using some with great results. It's healthier and easier on the wallet.
