Written in 1997, it's somewhat dated. For example, the chapter on bargains lists their addresses only. This book was written pre-internet craze because in the chapter on the internet it lists fees as "around $7 to $15 for two to five hours of cumulative service." I found Diane to contradict her words often. To save money, she states that you should buy vitamins A, C, E capsules, pin prick it, empty the contents, and put that on your face instead of buying a lot of cremes and potions. But later, in the chapter entitled supplements, she says taking supplements internally is the way to go! I got some suggestions and tips but nothing Earth-shattering.

This is another book from my younger, more "earth mother" phase, as evidenced by this list I wrote which I found in the back of the book. "At night, cleanse & exfoliate & moisturize. Exfoliate - Sugar and olive oil. Then instant oatmeal paste. Mask: Kitty litter 100% natural clay, mayonnaise, and for firming - banana and honey." I'm now beyond using food on my face and am not into feeding my face. Overall, though, a great read.
