1.0 out of 5 stars All Style, No Substance November 16, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
After casually flipping through Cosmo while waiting in line at the grocery store when I was in college, I finally decided to subscribe, and boy did I regret it. I was hoping to enjoy Cosmo as my monthly guilty pleasure, but what I got was an incredibly banal reading experience. The fashion, hair, and skin tips are not bad, but similar advice can easily be found in several better magazines.

Cosmo however, became a cultural staple because of the promise of its cover teasers. Yet, for anyone over the age of 16, the articles that these teaser headlines offer are uninformative and generally useless. By the third month of my subscription I realized that if you read one issue of Cosmo, you really don't need to read another one. They are all the same! Cosmo masquerades as an empowering lifestyle magazine for fashionable women in their 20s, but as a woman in that demographic, I found this magazine to be a colossal bore of recycled (not to mention really prosaic) sex-tips and retrograde advice that will set women back a good forty years. Needless to say, I did not renew my subscription. Currently, I subscribe to Glamour, Marie Claire, and m Elle and I am more satisfied with the overall content of these magazines.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cutting Corners Causing A Decline in Total Quality August 3, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars it's the same thing every month... April 24, 2007
By Jess

If you've read one "Cosmo", you've read them all. Do yourself a favor and check out "Glamour" and "Self" - you'll walk away happy, inspired, and hunting down the mailman for the next month's issue.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gets delivered AFTER it hits shelves.. July 21, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
My girlfriend loves Cosmopolitan, so as a present I bought her a subscription to the magazine. The magazine itself is good and entertaining, but I'm very disappointed by the fact that both times I ordered it (once from Amazon, once direct from their website) it arrived via mail up to a couple of weeks after it had already hit grocery store shelves. I would expect that if you order a subscription you'd be able to get the magazine before, or at least at the same time that it hits store shelves. Like I said, my girlfriend loves reading Cosmo, but I just can't recommend a magazine which might arrive so late regularly for you, as it does for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mother of god. December 7, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
I got this magazine along with a few others for my GF.

Its such a bad magazine... it really is... My GF didnt even like it.

Its everything that's wrong in the world. It reinforces all the stereotypes that make women feel bad about themselves, make them vain, and insecure.

Its full of ridiculous advice and terrible opinions.

Don't bother.

2.0 out of 5 stars for younger women February 6, 2010
By ang
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I like fashion and beauty magazines since it's a light and easy read. And I used to like this magazine. When I was younger. However, I am 30 now and whenever I pick up a copy...I feel stupider after I read it. Soooo much sex and stupid "love" advice. Things they say men want which often they don't, or things you should do to "get them". I am past the days where I want to try swinging from a chandelier, past the days where I want to play games with the guys I meet, and past the days of trying to be something I'm not. Be warned, this does not seem like a "be yourself" magazine. It seems like the "be the woman you think he wants you to be" magazine.
However, I like the fashion and beauty sections and luckily know myself well enough to separate the useful from the BS in this magazine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Trash. January 2, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I bought the $5 1-year subscription a few weeks ago and to be honest, I don't think it's even worth that much. Like another reviewer, I thought it would be a fun guilty pleasure and didn't really care if it showed up late in the month since I don't buy it normally. But really, I think that it's not even worth wasting the paper it's printed on (I bought a newsstand copy a few days ago on a whim, even though my subscription hasn't arrived- thinking of canceling it if that's possible). The magazine has really gone down in quality- it's all lame and sometimes creepy sex tips, and pictures of expensive makeup and outfits that no one would ever really wear except in a club (neon clothes?) I used to read it on occasion and there were some enjoyable articles among the amusing and somewhat repetitive body/hair/sex tips, but I didn't find a single article useful in the entire magazine (and there really were only 2 actual articles- their shocker article and the star profile, and while the shocker was sort of interesting it didn't offer any tips on avoiding the situation/protecting yourself from intruders/rapists or anything). Their articles are poorly researched, offering vague quotes from doctors that sometimes sound like they're not related to the subject at hand, and weird opinions from their "online guy polls" (what guy actually goes on cosmo's website to vote in these? I don't have any evidence but I bet they're either friends of the editors or just completely fabricated).

Anyway, I recommend that you save your $$, even if it's only $5 during the promo period in December. All of the most helpful reviews are positive, but the newer reviews all suggest that people are unimpressed with the magazine. I'm going to consider a few other magazines (I just found a new one I hadn't heard of, called MORE, at the YMCA and it was fairly substantive) and see if I can save some trees by canceling this subscription.

Too many ads in the magazine-almost every other page is an ad! Also, many of the stories are fluff, with no real content to them. Not my kind of magazine anymore...
