Advantages: Good read, inexpensive
Glamour is a magazine that most of you will have seen on newsagent shelves. It currently costs £2 and is issued monthly. There is a range of articles normally in this magazine. But you should expect to find articles on sex, men, fashion and real life stories.
This is a magazine that I find myself buying more and more. It is less expensive than say Cosmopolitan and a little less risky! This months articles include the happy body issue, liposuction killed my mum, the making of Mrs Thatcher and a host of money off vouchers!
I do like the articles that are written. The magazine is very much about females being in control - of their lives, career sex and relationships. And I like the perspective they are written from. The magazine is very much about knowing what you want from various areas in your life and how to get it! I'd say this is aimed at early twenties to late 30's and anyone else who fancies a read!
This is in the same price range as other monthly magazines and it's a good read with not too many advertisements in it (I don't read Company any more as this has too many adverts for my liking.) There are also interesting articles on fashion and beauty and tricks and tips from beauty experts. If you haven't tried this before I would buy it one month, see how you get on with it. This magazine comes in a handy travel size so you can pop it in your bag to read on the way to work!
There is also very often a free gift with Glamour. In the past these have included full size Nails Inc varnishes and small Benefit products!
Summary: A good read for the commute to work or in the bath
