Tuesday Tip – Issue 15 – Back to Baby
Every few weeks, I head over to the supermarket. Except instead of trolling the food or beauty isles, I’m in the baby section. Why? It seems like when the folks were developing products for keeping babies clean and healthy, they managed to create a range of products perfect for our beauty needs.
Since it’s a mild cleanser, it’s a great facial cleanser for those with sensitive skin or for cleaning up your makeup brushes. It’s also the best way to wash your hair post a ritual of DIY hair treatments.
This is my go-to moisturizer anytime I’m wearing a short dress or skirt. While moisturizer is great, it doesn’t provide the hint of shine that baby oil does. It also makes a great eye makeup remover providing a great alternate to MAC’s cleanse-off oil while travelling.
I often see women at the gym cleaning off their faces with Nivea or L’oréal makeup wipes. I used to be a fan of them, but at 20-30 Dhs for a pack of 20 wipes, they can get expensive. They also would dry out quickly and need to be tossed out. I now swear by baby wipes – they smell fantastic, feel great on the skin and are a bargain at a quarter of the price.
While my favorite dry shampoo is from Boots, baby powder makes an excellent substitute. It’s also a savior in case you drop an oily food on your clothes. Just sprinkle powder to absorb the oil, and then wash as usual!
So what baby products do you use? Or are there any special multitaskers in your bathroom?
