I am going to admit something…  I have been so exhausted the past week, I have gone to sleep without washing my face. Horror! I know I will pay for it in a few weeks.

To be honest, while I love the products I am using and definitely see results, I think that I may be missing that one product that makes me excited to get off the couch and go wash my face.

I see this often in the treatment room–when clients tell me they often skip the evening wash, I ask them how much they love their product. Is there anything in the bathroom that makes them want to rush home and slather it all over their face? When they look at me like I am nuts, so I know I am onto something.

It can be a great texture, a sensational scent or simply a glow that comes post-use. Whatever it is, there needs to be one product in your arsenal that makes you feel like a kid in a candy store.

I love playing cosmetic chemist in my bathroom, and I don’t think that I have allowed myself enough time to just play with the oodles of different products I have strewn around the house. It is certainly not for want of product. But I need make time to sit down with each bottle and jar and figure out what the product claims in its marketing vs. what the ingredient formulation tells me it can actually do. Then I get excited about the possibilities. My Product Fatigue Syndrome vanishes.
