Monday Musings- Wonders Never Cease
Happy Monday, ladies. This week I’m musing about a recent discovery I should have known of earlier, a toner I love, why I never shave my legs, and the outfit of the week.
Please tell me I am not the only woman who hasn’t heard of or tried the wonder cloth. I’ve been using a cotton facecloth to wash my face my entire life but it turns out there’s a great alternative that may be even better.
How I’m washing my face
It’s made from a combination of cotton and rayon which is basically made from wood pulp. It feels a bit like a microfiber blanket and is super soft. It removed everything, including my waterproof eyeliner in two swipes then rinsed clean of all stains with just water.
I’m coming to the end of my umpteenth jar of Farmacy Green Clean and decided to give this Rosehip cleanser a try and love it. I’ve tried several Trilogy products over the years and love them.
I’m on my 3rd bottle of this Purito toner and love it. I apply to my face morning and evening after I wash my face.
Here’s what the website says it contains-
Lactobacillus/Rice fermentation inhibits melanin generation and boosts skin whitening, while Bifida fermentation solution promotes skin firmness and cares for skin damage. In addition to fermented extracts of various grains and filtrates, the product also contains Niacinamide for effective skin whitening and Adenosine, an anti-aging ingredient, that strengthens cell proliferation in the dermal layer of the skin to help maintain firmness. Niacinamide is effective for skin whitening at more than 2%, the maximum content allowed by KFDA is 5%. PURITO Fermented Complex 94 Boosting essence contains 3%.
I love how hydrating this feels on my skin so my moisturizer doesn’t have to work as hard.
Outfit Of The Week
This outfit of the week takes a sporty look at a gingham, linen blazer with a chambray shirt, white denim, and some sporty sneakers. I love the back belt you can snug to adjust the shape of this blazer.
This would be so fun over a white tee shirt dress with a pair of keds… blue jeans and ballet flats… linen pants and sandals…the options are endless.
Why I stopped shaving my legs
I gave up shaving my legs several years ago. I couldn’t see in the shower without my glasses on so I’d miss big stripes of unshaved skin and frankly, it was a pain. I do have less hair to remove than when I was younger, but I still like to be smooth and hairless if I’m wearing a skirt.
Epilators have come a long way since my first one many years ago. Mine is 4 years old so the colors are different now and it has likely been improved. I use it on my legs and underarms about once a month or so and that’s it. I never have to take a razer when I travel or worry about nicking my knees again. When the hair grows in it’s so soft I barely notice.
Have you tried the wonder cloth?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
