January 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.
This book, say its doyenne authors Stacey and Fairley, is a personal beauty-counter consultant to accompany you as you shop for effective, budget glamour. All the products (from head to toe, scrubs to balms, luscious lips to perfect powders) have been trialled and scored by testers, and the vast majority of products slip in under the £10 mark (there are also super-steals for under a fiver, a handful of miracle-workers for around £20 and daisy symbols for organic and petrochemical-free items). You can dip in and out for cost-conscious confidence any time you fancy a change of product or just want that inexplicable lift that comes from a five-minute relaxing soak in beauty talk.
Sarah and Jo appreciate that the beauty world is a jungle full of beauty jargon, confusing terminology, false claims and pretty packaging, all to make you part with your money. The beauty gurus have once again gone on a quest to find you the best choices for every kind of product - from miracle face creams to frizz-beaters for your hair, but this time they are concentrating on the cheaper 'beauty steals' that won't break the bank but will make you feel gorgeous. And because the products are tested on thousands of real women, you can feel re-assured that you're getting the truth so that you can buy products with confidence and go home with some spare change.
