Women in the UK spend £3billion a year on beauty products, some of which are very good and a lot of which are just a waste of money. But, when faced with the bewildering number of beauty products on the market, how do you know what to buy? Does paying more really mean more effective products, or is the £2 cream from Boots just as good? This book is your short-cut to the best-value buys.
Using impartial testers, and enlivened with expert and celebrity commentaries, this innovative and easy-to-follow guide gives practical and truly honest advice, covering everything from the best colour-enhancing shampoos to whether £100 moisturisers are really worth it. Before you buy anything, buy Beauty Scoop.

We honestly can't believe the reaction we've had to this book - it's been SO encouraging. We did know that women wanted a book like this because our painstaking research involved sending initial questionnaires out to friends, friends of friends, acquaintances of friends and family to ask them if they did. The unanimous reply was: FOR GOD'S SAKE YES !! Yet we are still taken aback by the positive feedback we have had from consumers and the media. And it has made the weeks spent sifting through boxes of beauty products and returned questionnaires feel thoroughly worthwhile. We firmly believe that the beauty business has got too big for its boots and forgotton what normal women want and expect from beauty products. Because there are so many products out there women are forced to take a shortcut and focus on products that they think will provide instant results - and for (usually imaginary) obvious 'problems' like cellulite and wrinkles. In many cases, advertising has become ridiculous too: teenage girls in TV ads saying they are going to 'get tough' on cellulite when they haven't got an inch of it anywhere (grrrr!), more teenagers advertising anti-ageing creams .. And there's another myth which we explode in the book: no one under the age of 35 (or older) needs to use an active anti-ageing product .. Shocked? You should be! Our book tells you how to look at the beauty business - and ENJOY buying products - unemotionally, confidently and rationally. And the fact that it has already had to be reprinted (within 3 weeks of publication) is testimony to the fact that women want this advice - and for a good price! We wrote Beauty Scoop for YOU (and your handbag - surely more practical than your coffee table?!) and we welcome your comments - on the book and on beauty products you have tried: my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
