COTTON PADSI apply my skin lotions with these because you use too much when you apply with your fingers the excess leaks through your hands. Also, my mother says rubbing your face gives you wrinkles.
BAGS 9 & 10
ECHINACEAI was on an embed with American troops just this morning and finally succumbed to Kabuls wind and dust. All I could think was, I have to get home and take some echinacea.
MULTIVITAMINS: I take these to keep alert and alive. I cant afford to be sick here; there isnt enough health care.
Q-TIPS: Wal-Mart has a whole section of travel kits. Love the packs of 30 that I can keep refilling.
BODY SHOP CASSIS ROSE SHOWER GEL: Gosh, I really use a lot of stuff, dont I?
ESTÉE LAUDER OPTIMIZER REPAIR BOOSTING LOTION: I bought this in Korea, as its not available in the U.S. I often layer five or six creams on at the same time.
LOCCITANE FLORAL CLEANSING JELLY with honey, royal jelly, and propolis: The aroma of honey just radiates around you.You feel like Winnie the Pooh: cute, light, and sweet!
CLINIQUE TOTAL TURNAROUND VISIBLE SKIN RENEWER AND SUPER CITY SUNBLOCK SPF 40: More things collected from duty-free! I like that Cliniques products with SPF dont leave a chalky residue.
ORIGINS NIGHT-A-MINS MINERAL-ENRICHED MOISTURE LOTION: In the late 90s, when Iwas living in New York City and working for the Korea Times, the look everyone was after was Rachels from Friends. Clearly this was not going to work for me, so I decided to look for inspiration in magazines; thats where I first heard about a lot of skin creams, like this one, which I love.
NEUTROGENA ULTRA SHEER DRY-TOUCH SUNBLOCK SPF 55: Its less oily than a lot of sunscreens. I used to have severe allergies, and this doesnt cause any reactions. Multivitamins keep me alert and alive. I cant afford to be sick here there isnt enough health care.
