I liked this book enough but she lost me when she started raving about the benifit of Botox and other cosmetic procedures. It seemed more about throwing money at the problem rather than just accepting that age is not a problem and style is all about confidence.

I think this is a very American upper-class view of France and french beauty. If you want something more authentic read "French Women Don't Get Fat" by Mireille Guiliano, an actual frenchwoman.

Great beauty tips and a wonderful read about the insight into French women. Loved it!

Read the previous negative comments - well, I actually quite liked this little book, probably for the same points you didn't like it - it has a different prospective and thus felt fresh and pleasant to read. And some of the advices are quite practical.

Not a good read. Found information not relevant to north american women. A few good points here and there but basically a waste of time. sorry. the author needs to find a better topic.

Tedious. She encourages you to have all sorts of beautification specialists, like plastic surgeons or dermatologists. Go have expensive massages and spend multiple hours at the gym to achieve that healthy 'natural' French look. Drink water. Use fancy French skin creams.

And I could really skip the 'Frenchified' neologisms for various things that we do have in the US. Like 'Aquagym' and a pronunciation guide to saying 'Pilates' in French.

Give me a book that is well written and about real women. There is not infinite time in the universe - read a better book than this on French beauty secrets because this one is tedious! Ugh.
