El Hub would probably (absolutely, definitely) say that most of the 20-some-odd bath and body products in our shower are unnecessary, but I have to politely disagree. That man may be able to survive on a single bar of soap, but I can’t. I NEED EVERY DAMN THING IN THERE.
You don’t even know. Without the proper care and attention, my hair goes wild! I’m talking star of its own show on Animal Planet. I’d have hairy hobbit toes, too. And without the right scented bath products? Huh uh. I don’t want to smell like overripe peaches.
So, yeah, this is a tough one for me… Do I pick the razor, (’cause sister is hairy), or hair conditioner, or soap, or one of the other things in my shower?
If this were the end times, like if things were really, REALLY bad, I’d go with a good cleanser, like Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, and use it on my face, body and hair. I’d stockpile bottles of that stuff.
Then, and this is totally fair game because I didn’t say anything about DIY or kitchen products, I’d condition my crazy mane with olive or coconut oil.
This is assuming, of course, that I’d be able to find some (post-apocalyptic Karen would be crafty), and then I’d trim my rogue body hair with a sharp knife or a pair of tweezers, which I could also use as an anti-zombie weapon in a pinch.
If this were some other kind of situation, like if an eccentric billionaire said to me, “Karen, I’ll give you $10 million if you only use one bath or shower product for the rest of your life,” then I’d still go with soap…but I’d spend some of my millions on waxing and deep conditioning treatments at the salon.
Dastardly dilemmas: You can only have one bath or shower product for the rest of your life. What is it?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Happy hump day!
