The ultimate beauty guide from the experts at GOOP — the trusted resource for healthy, mindful living, curated by Gwyneth Paltrow.
Millions of women around the world turn to the clean-living team at GOOP for beauty advice. From nontoxic product recommendations, hair and makeup tutorials, to guidance on ageing, acne, and antioxidants, GOOP has become the go-to resource for head-to-toe beauty.
Finally, the editors of GOOP have shared their top tips and recommendations, favourite detox recipes, workout plans, and hair and makeup looks in one must-have guide. Featuring more than 100 gorgeous photos and extensive Q&As from GOOP’s family of expert contributors, GOOP CLEAN BEAUTY will shed a definitive light on the importance of diet, sleep, exercise, and clean beauty products, while offering tactical advice for healthy, glowing skin and hair that starts from the inside out.
This book is beautiful — gorgeous photographs, beautiful models, and well-explained instructions and recipes throughout the book. GOOP Clean Beauty covers so many different topics that you’ll definitely find something in here that’ll interest you. I really loved reading about about how sleep affects the body and the brain, and also GOOP’s tips for keeping clear, flawless skin.
It’s a big, gorgeous hardback book that acts as a bible for beauty. It covers beauty inside and out, food, makeup, hair treatment and skin treatment. There is a lot to this book if you take the time to read it. The foreword has been written by Gwyneth Paltrow herself, detailing her aim for not only this book but the GOOP brand and also what she hopes her readers will get out of this Clean Beauty guide.
“The whole concept of beauty is complicated. It’s kind of like love — you know it when you see it — but that only really holds when it’s in the flesh, unbiased by Photoshop, Instagram filters, Glam Squads, and really great lighting and photography.”
GOOP Clean Beauty is full of scientific information behind what the company is arguing, as well as interviews with renowned specialists about their recommendations and suggestions for readers. It’s actually a really well structured book, presenting a lot of information to the reader and making their purchase feel worthwhile.
This book did seem to be a bit of a marketing ploy to plug their GOOP products, and when I looked online their products were very expensive (their little tub of facial mask is $125 USD!). They do plug some other products as well but they are also quite pricey and so this book is probably targeted at women who are quite well off or who earn quite a bit from their jobs.
“Lots of makeup layered on top of a breakout usually looks like…lots of makeup layered on top of a breakout. It’s a catch-22; in trying to minimise a problem area, you can end up highlighting it. The trick is to do as little as possible: Leave the clear spots on your skin as makeup-free as you can — there’s nothing prettier than bare skin, and it’ll distract the eye from the less alluring area.”
I really appreciated how simple the recipes are — there aren’t many ingredients you need to buy and a lot of the ingredients are pretty easy to find and aren’t too expensive. The photos that accompany the recipes are also gorgeous and well-presented and make the food look delicious.
GOOP Clean Beauty is full of valuable information about the body, and is a great companion to have on your bookshelf if you’re interested in how to live a healthier lifestyle (inside and out). The makeup tips and skincare advice are two particular highlights in the book and I think women who are in their mid 20s or older will particularly love this book.
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
