I was going to title this post About Face Book – but, it’s not about Facebook, it’s just about face. It’s the Smart Woman’s Guide to Beauty by Aisling McDermot with Laura Kennedy. A lot of beauty books can get very earnest – even if you’re the most serious person in the world about your skincare and makeup they can start to feel a little bit like ‘homework’.

Aisling is as cynical as me when it comes to claims from beauty brands; I love the way she tells it straight (for example, don’t bother wasting your money on expensive micellar waters when a cheaper one will do the same job) and cuts through the science to bring you the real de-coded versions of what ingredients do what. Basically, it’s a no bull beauty book. Aisling has spoken to plenty of experts, recommends real products for real issues and it’s funny too. Need to avoid the ‘foundation moustache’ or Radiator Face? Or discover what ‘buffing’ really is? It’s all HERE. 

When I did a search on Amazon, for no reason I can fathom, a set of Del Boy Face Party Masks popped up – don’t muddle the two. You’ll learn nothing about beauty. The book is in stock in the link above, but not in stock currently on Amazon – they’re waiting on new stock, always a good sign when something sells out.
