ON WEIGHT – £1, 523… juice detox, new you boot camp, face reading 

Ok so Avril Mair is ELLE’S Beauty Extremist and has spent the last 2 years spending 50GRAND on the above treatments. 50GRAND!

In this article Avril talks about what she has spent her money on and what she considers (out of the treatments she has tried) the things she cannot live without, these include;

The haircuts and colour (fair enough), the tooth whitening (again, fair enough but def a luxury), the elaborate skincare routine (at a cost of £6, 103?!), the filler and the Sculptra (which is £400 for 3 sessions!), Botox and eyelash extensions….

Really!! This makes me wonder how I live on my Nivea Facewipes, foundation, powder, blush and mascara. Maybe because, if I had the money, I would rather spend it on other things.

How much does your beauty routine cost you? Do you think its acceptable to spend so much money on trying to look good?
