Would YOU rather live in a cardboard box then give up your beauty treatments?

21 October 2008


Yes, we know that sounds like a crazy questions but it's what one - very respected - beauty journalist has identified as a credit crunch trend. In New York of course. (As if SATC/Lipstick Jungle/Gossip Girl weren't enough to prove the Manhattan ladies' dedication to super-grooming!). Bonnie Fuller, the former editor of US Weekly, Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire, has let rip on so-called ‘hyper-competitive' New York women who she says would rather live in a cardboard box than give up their high maintenance beauty routines! Hmmm... Sure, we're all feeling the CC pinch but the Grazia beauty addicts are cutting back on skinny lattes, (bad for the skin anyway) and 5pm choccie treats (ditto) before re-mortgaging our houses for the sake of a facial or two... But how about you? Tell us what you're cutting back on to make sure you're never without your beauty fix...
