Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 588

Have a colorful day!

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start.

1. How often do you exfoliate your face?

I try to do a gentle physical exfoliation daily with a washcloth and a cleanser in the morning, and then two or three times a week I’ll use a retinol-containing product at night.

2. What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a single skin care product?

It was on Skinceuticals C + E Ferulic Serum…which is $166 a pop for a teeny, tiny bottle.

So pricey, but it worked, especially on areas of inconsistent pigmentation. I haven’t used it in ages because of the price, though. I’ve been trying to find a less expensive alternative (saving for the Coywolf’s college and the house remodel got me all 🙀), but I’ve yet to find something comparable.

I might go back to it eventually…maybe after Connor graduates from grad school?!

3. Your top three skin care concerns right now?

Pigmentation, pimples and fine lines.

Those are my top three, but can I add a fourth? — ’cause if I can, dryness is also plaguing me at the moment.

4. List three skin care products you put on your face this morning.

  1. First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser
  2. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream
  3. Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing Lotion

5. Your best skin care advice?

Leave the pimple alone, girlfriend. The less you futz with it, the better off you’ll be!

❤️❤️❤️Just a friendly reminder ❤️❤️❤️

be patient with yourself

Hiya, friend. Good morning. I’m so happy to see you today. 😊 This week, BTW, is going to be a good — no, a great one!

I just realized that as of September (which is only two weeks away), we only have four more months till 2020.

Wow!

That’s crazy to me… This seems like a good time to consider how we’re going to wrap up 2019. If you’re exactly where you want to be in terms of your goals and wishes, that’s amazing! Give yourself a big hug and keep on keepin’ on. In my case, I still feel like I have a lot to accomplish before the year’s end, so every day this week, I’m going to chip away at just one of those things at a time.

My thing this week is clearing out a closet which has become a disorganized catch-all for everything, and I cannot — I JUST CAN’T — move into 2020 with it the way it is. So, every day this week, I’m going to spend 20 minutes cleaning and clearing it out.

I’ve been avoiding it for years, but it’s finally time, ya know?

How about you? What would you like to achieve before the end of 2019?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
