This one goes without saying, really. These bad boys can be used for everything. I use them to clean up after a gym sessions if I can’t be bothered showering when I first get home (around 83.5% of the time), clean my phone, wipe the sink and, sometimes I even use them for their actual purpose.
There’s no fuss, no mess and I have been known to clean my face and brush my teeth at the same time. If that’s not the epitome of multi-tasking, I genuinely don’t know what it.
it comes with its own sponge and it takes, like, all of 30 seconds for me to apply. It might take you a bit longer, but I care not about this. For me, the fact that I even own some, never mind actually *use* is, is a massive win. I need something I can grab fro the bathroom, chuck in my bag, and apply it in the car (or in the bathroom at work) and doesn’t impact on the whole ‘getting up at the last moment’ routine that I’ve spent my entire adult life perfecting.
I have fallen deeply in love with Rimmel’s roll on blush/lip color, which come in the cutest little pot and takes up no space whatsoever. I buy mine in rosy pink and roll it across my cheekbones and literally just smush it in until it doesn’t make me look like Aunt Sally from Wurzel Gummige. I also roll it across my lips because nothing makes me happier than using one product for two uses.
Unfortunately, I’m yet to find a mascara that doesn’t involve me removing my glasses and desperately trying to squint at the bathroom mirror in order to apply. It’s just not on the market. Although, it should be by now, no?? Us long sighted girls need mascara, too.
I’m a total brow newbie who recently bought a palette (for reasons I’m still trying to work out) and tried it out one long afternoon when I clearly had way too much time on my hands. I tried it and hated it because it made me look like I had actual eyebrows which, as a very pale blonde, I’ve really never seen before.
I don’t think I’m being too overdramatic here when I say that this stuff has changed my life. I actually can’t believe I ever lived in a world without it. When I look back at older women and realise that they all had to get out of bed to wash their hair every day, it makes me genuinely sad for them. Also, for younger me, who also had to do this.
