This magazine (as a subscription, not so much in the stores) is an inexpensive way to entertain yourself once a month. Sure, it doesn't necessarily stimulate intellectually, or present anything new and astonishing, but neither do most tv shows we like to watch. I'm in my mid 20s, and I certainly enjoy this magazine.. sometimes to giggle at some of the ridiculous articles containing 'advice.' For example, my boyfriend and I share laughs over the advice about how to get/please/entertain/understand, etc. a guy. It's a learning experience for me because he'll tell me, 'that's not it at all!' This magazine also features pieces discussing more serious topics that are relevant to today's woman. If I read an article about a subject of interest, it prompts me to do more research of my own. I recommend this magazine for entertainment purposes only. It's a nice read on the metro train on the way to work.
As long as you don't take anything in it seriously, it's fun to mindlessly flip through.
Its a good mix of fashion and fun advice . Best advice everything a gurl can want in a funny and humorous way!!!!
A great gift for the young adult daughter!
Our daughter in college asked for COSMO for her birthday. A fun gift to fill her college mailbox each month.
Never too old to enjoy Cosmo
64 and still learning. Rather read it in Cosmo than have my children tell me.
A must have for a young female.
I have been a Cosmo subscriber for over 3 years. One of my favorite magazines. I actually read it cover to cover every month. Yes its kinda repetitive, but its very fun and has plenty of advice for a woman on various topics. It has a little bit of everything. Plus your boyfriend/husband can read it when you are done!
4 stars for me.
Cutting Corners Causing A Decline in Total Quality
This was my "first" grown-up girl magazine and I still share a fondness for it and usually buy it at least three or four times a year. My guess is in order to keep the cover price down, the mag is trying to cut corners on other importent areas like--paper quality. The magazine is printed on a lower quality paper than most--decreasing its' durability and readability. Also, let's face it--some of the writing is just not up to the same level of many competing magazines. The articles seem repetitive, simple-minded and without a lot of useful information. Let's hope the "old gal" gets a quality "face-lift" and soon.
This magazine hasn't changed and therefore, everything being covered in this issue for example has been mentioned and covered more than 10 different times. Although, it's still a good magazine to read over for the sake of entertaining yourself and you can probably even get a laugh at some of the ridiculous articles.
Great Magazine, Not Always On Time
I love, love, love this magazine. It's a fun magazine. The only complaint I have...is I see it in stores before my mailbox often.
Geared toward the under 30 crowd
I expected Cosmopolitan to be similar to Glamour & Allure but it really is aimed for a very young audience. Many, many articles about sex, sex tips, hook-ups, etc. and all of the quoted participants are in their early 20's. There are a few good articles but little of relevance for anyone 40 or above. I will not renew this magazine.
