My Body Admin Diaries: A Beauty Editor With A Bounty Of Free Products But Very Little Free Time

What the average week looks like in a beauty editor’s bathroom

The beauty industry is valued at £9.3 billion, but how much time, effort and money does the average woman spend on her body admin? On a mission to destroy the illusion that us ladies spend our precious free time fussing over facials and following fads, we’re asking a cross-section of people how much time they really dedicate to their beauty routine. Do they follow a nine-step Korean programme or are they actually applying their make-up on the bus to work? Let the veil of mystery be lifted once and for all.

This week we’re joined by a 28-year-old beauty editor. She lives alone (read: she doesn’t have to share her bathroom cabinet) and says, ‘I get sent a lot of products to sample but very few make it into my day-to-day routine.’ Instead of relying on freebies she prefers to re-buy her favourite products and has done for years. However, every so often a revolutionary item will stroll into her life and shake up her whole body admin.

Cost of make-up: £190.06

Cost of skincare: £254.07

Cost of bodycare: £185.64

Cost of haircare: £99.99

Total Cost of Body Admin: £733.30*

*As a beauty editor who receives countless samples many of the products featured were gifted for free with the idea the hope they would receive coverage in some form or other.
