This book is good but not perfect. I like how it goes into detail about skin types. When I take the test I come out as OSNW or oily, sensitive, non-pigmented and wrinkled. However, I just know I'm a pigmented type, because I'm prone to age spots. She seems to indicate that people who only burn and never tan are non-pigmented types. I'm obviously an exception. I also read the OSPW …Read more

This is a book that is in desperate need of an update as all of the product recommendations are wildly out of date. It was first published in 2006 and was last copyrighted in 2010 (I purchased the eBook version, BTW). As such, while it's technically still in print, it's not useful for specific product recommendations (and even the ones that were recommended nearly 10 years ago …Read more

I love the book, but I would not go for the products she recommends in the book. But it's a good way to find out what skin type you have and your skin types pros and cons etc.

So if you are interested in learning about skin types and so on, this is a great buy!

This is a library read. Not a purchase, although I did buy it. It's a great book in some ways, helping understand skin types and various challenges, and how best to care for your particular skin BUT


here is why I say library loan only. Or at least try it there BEFORE you buy.


Most of the recommended products are expensive and or don't work like she …

I bought this book probably 5 years ago and was really into it. I have always had problems with acne and was looking for the ellusive "miracle cure". I took the quiz and was OSNW. I followed the regime and it was OK, but not life-altering. Then I got pregnant and the doctor put some restrictions on topical products when I was pregnant. I forgot about the regime and about the book …Read more

I read this book at the bookstore and took notes since I didn't want to buy it. While some of the information was helpful (particularly finding out that my skin is Resistant--which means most products have little effect), I agree with some other posters that other parts were contradictory and confusing. Also, even though I read the book when it had just come out, many of the products …Read more

Just like the last reviewer I am a DSPW (which I kind of knew before reading Dr. Baumann's The Skin Type Solution, but wasn't sure what to try next). I did read the entire book and changed my skin care routine to some of the products and routine she recommends. I must tell you that my skin has indeed improved. Noxzema on my sensitive skin? Yep, it's working for me and has …Read more

I read an older version of this book from my local library. This book illustrates some very important points about skin typing and I agree with most of her recommendations. The product list suggestions were quite a narrow range. I checked the product reviews on the suggested products and some had poor ratings. It's hard to keep up to date with products in a book versus a website. But overall …Read more

My sister has rosacea and was searching for what seems like ages to find what worked for her. This was recommended to her by a friend, and when I saw how wonderful my sister's skin was looking, i had to also give in & buy my own (she wouldnt part with hers). I purchased it for $1 on half.com... so it was really very reasonable.

Yes, some of the products are discontinued …
