My husband calls it fraud. He says that I commit fraud every day. I tell him that women know two things–good bait and camouflage. Harold hunts and fishes so I’m using terminology that he should understand.
I’m talking about my face. I’m 60, so It is sliding down my facial skeletal frame; and I keep applying every control that I can find. I guess the controls or makeup is what Harold calls fraud.
One very cheap tool that I use is a baby’s washcloth.
When I was a young woman, I liked to wash my face with a mild soap and remove the soap with a wet washcloth. By the time I got into my 30s, I needed something better. I loved using Clinique’s Facial Soap. By mid 40s as my face became drier, I began using other products.
Today, I’ve come full circle and use Noxema and a baby washcloth. The scrubbing action of the washcloth feels like I exfoliate a little every evening, and the Noxema is not drying. I like the traces of menthol and feel that it stimulates my skin. I must have about 15 of those little cloths, and they remove my makeup perfectly
So don’t tell Harold, but I commit fraud every evening with my two secret tools.
What do you like to use to remove makeup? I’m always up for trying a new product.
