I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that G and I are just not that much alike…and he’s way more high maintenance than I am. Have I mentioned that it takes him 2 hours to get ready? Every day. And his usual shift at work begins at 5:00 am. He gets up at 3:00 am to get ready and he’s always running late. WTF?!!!
At this point I’m used to it, but it still amazes me. Anyway, today I thought I’d share our different approaches to taking care of our fat faces.
First, let’s talk about me.
I’m pretty low maintenance. I like to look nice, but I don’t want to spend a lot of time (or money) trying to look nice. My skin care regimen pretty much coincides with that.
I use Dove bar soap. I only buy 2 at a time and they are like $1 each or something. If I bought 10, I’d probably get a better deal, but I feel like a hoarder when I do things like that. I also use moisturizer. Lately, I’ve been using Clean & Clear, but I’ve also used Oil of Olay. I like it to have an SPF in it, but otherwise I don’t really care. And that’s it.
Are you ready to see what G uses on his face? Well, let’s take a look at his big, fat face first.
Okay, remember him? These are the products G uses to keep his face looking beautiful:
That’s right, he uses 6 products a day!!! Wow.
G uses the Biore (a deep cleanser), the Gillete Fusion (an aftershave), the Neutrogena (a day moisturizer) and the Oil of Olay (a night moisturizer) once per day. He uses the Stridex pads and the Topical Gel twice per day.
Speaking of the Topical Gel…
That stuff is like acid. Because G has very oily skin, he has a prescription for it (you can only get it with a prescription). My skin is more on the normal/dry side of the skin spectrum and when that gel gets on my face it feels like my skin is burning off. I’m not joking. It is some serious stuff. However, whenever I get a blemish, I put that stuff on and it works like a miracle. Thank god we have good health insurance because that little container (that lasts one month) costs $362!!! With our insurance it’s only $20. Insane.
So that’s how we keep our gorgeous faces looking gorgeous semi-presentable.
How about you? Do you use one product or millions?
