How many beauty products do you use a day?
Yikes! That’s a tough one… I guess it depends on what qualifies as a beauty product and which specific day we’re talking about, but If I just take an average day and include hair products and moisturizers along with the obvious things like mascara, eyeshadow, lipstick and gloss, it’s a pretty big number, LOL!

I’m gonna say 30…

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Good morning, girls. 🙂 I’m the only one awake yet (me and the chickens). It’s not quite dawn here, but I’m still on California time (which is two hours ahead of Hawaii). I’ve got my laptop on the couch that I’ve been sleeping on in my in-law’s small living room. El Hub is sleeping soundly on a foldable cushion beside me on the floor.

Every few hours or so I’ve been connecting via Skype to Makeup and Beauty Blog HQ in California to see how Tabs is doing. So far so good. He’s holding down the fort!

    Goodness, I counted 21. Hi, my name is anita and I’m addicted to personal upkeep.

  2. Toni says:

    Well, I counted 14-15 if I include my face cleansing/wrinkle cream and if I use foundation primer. I didn’t realize it was that much! Maybe I can tell this to hubby and it will justify my purchases (since I just placed another MAC order and went to ULTA last night and will go again today).

  3. Sarah says:

    It depends on the day, but wow! I was surprised by my number (about 15 for normal days and probably over 20 for more formal occasions).

    I thought I was relatively low maintenance…

  4. Tiffany says:

    This varies so much for me. If I’m in a rush and just going to school I can get away with under 10. But, if I actually want to look semi-cute, that’s a whole ‘nother story….

  5. Rae says:

    Aww man :/ This is a very scary prospect. I counted 18 without eyeshadow, and I don’t want to know any more!!

  6. Saku says:

    I say 3-5. I’m not a big makeup girl, but I do love eyeshadows and lipgloss. Got to have my lipgloss and face cream.

  7. Kelly says:

    Well including hair products, perfume and hand lotion along with all my makeup and face products, I would say on average about 20. Wow!

  8. KarenW says:

    I thought I was low-maintenance, but I’m at 9.

    Karen, I’m really jealous that you get to spend Christmas in Hawaii!

  9. Tania says:

    I use about 20 more if I REALLY want to get dolled up. Less if it’s a no hair wash day. Jealous that you get to spend x-mas in Hawaii. Here in the big KS it’s storming like thunder and the whole bit and we’re supposed to get freezing rain/sleet stuff. However I’m making plenty of x-mas treats. Yes!

  10. Christina says:

    Time zone changes are fun, huh? I’m [finally!] in Seattle, so three hours behind what my body thinks is local time. Come on, body, get it together!

    How long do you get to enjoy Hawaii, Karen? Hope you’re able to relax, since we all know Tabs is living it up in California. 😉

  11. smeegal9 says:

    e/s primer and shadow, mascara and eye liner,blush, lip liner, lipstick,foundation,face powder,
    deoderant, body lotion,chafing gel
    hair silicone drops! Eeeek!

  12. gio says:

    It depends on the day, but on average, including makeup, hair products and hand cream I’d say about 15. But if I wanna get all dolled up, I use more, probably about 20.

  13. Courtney says:

    15! Not too bad :3

  14. diane says:

    I’ve counted somewhere to 14. I don’t use hair products, except for the nutritional ones, but not mousse or hair spray or smth. Mostly they are make up stuff, a moisturizer, cleaning cream and tonic 🙂

    love your questions!

    Happy Holidays!

  15. Ashley says:

    I’m going to avoid answering this question… Nope, I won’t think about it! I will not.. I’m low maintenance. I am LOW MAINTENANCE. I know I am! I must be 🙁
    .-= Ashley’s last blog post… Almost December! =-.

  16. Leilani says:

    I counted about 12 on an average basis, mostly because I don’t really use any hair products, unless its a special occasion. 12 was definetly more than I would’ve thought. I guessed about 5 but then I started counting and… well, obviously it was alot more, haha!
    Ps. It’s cool you’re in Kaneohe, that’s where I live. Yay!

  17. Stephanie Zaide says:

    On a regular day I use approximately 12-13 products. When you think about everything you use sun up to sun down it amounts to a lot of stuff!

  18. Stacie says:

    Geez, on an average day my number is around 20! Dang! Those really start adding up. It’s time for the denial to stop. My name is Stacie, and I am high maintenance!

  19. Tali says:

    Hairspray (sometimes)

    8.. not so bad.. maybe 11 on a high maintenance day!

  20. Julia says:

    I thought I wasn’t using too much stuff, but my number makes it up to 16 if you count extra beauty products like moisturizers. Shampoo, conditioner, face moisturizer, eye moisturizer, body lotion, aveda hair product, bumble & bumble hair product, face primer, foundation, concealer, blush, lipstick, lipgloss, eye highlighter, undereye brightner, and hair shine spray. When I first started counting I reached 8 but then I kept remembering extra things that I use! (I’m not counting the separate night eye moisturizer and overnight cream that I rarely use.)

  21. Let’s see:
    1. eye cream
    2. body lotion
    3. facial moisturizer
    4. face cleasner
    5. body spray/perfume
    6. lipgloss/lipstick

    (When I have more time:
    9. eyeliner
    10. foundation
    11. concealer)

  22. amy says:

    It depends on what I am doing but on an average day such as going to work I would use about 10 to 15 from moisturizer down to lipstick/lipgloss.
