Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
The ingredients in this guide are all-natural, organic, and easily sourced. From acai to witch hazel, each ingredient is accompanied by a gorgeous illustration, information about its providence and primary use, and recipes for how to use it as a modern beauty solution. Whether it’s making a simple oat bath to smooth skin, a sake lotion for your scalp, or a lemon “shine water” to brighten blond hair, the recipes are easy to follow and many of the ingredients are likely already in your pantry. Staples like avocado, mint, rice, and salt become a fortifying hair mask, skin purifying mist, soothing face mask, and beach hair spray in mere minutes. Each recipe in AN ATLAS OF NATURAL BEAUTY echoes the unique aesthetic heritage of Buly as a Parisian apothecary, and, as Vogue has said of the brand,
“No one has remastered Old World traditions quite like they have".
