Confession is good for the face

I have a confession…wanna hear it? Come closer…no, closer…oh come on, I don’t have cooties – get over here!

My secret is…*whispers low*…I don’t wash my face at night. GASP! SCREAM! GASP! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Really, I hardly ever wash my makeup off my face before I go to bed at night because 1) I’m lazy and 2) see #1. By the time I’m ready for bed, it’s all I can do to brush my teeth (which ironically I do EVERY SINGLE NIGHT), which you would think that since I’m already at the sink it wouldn’t be a big deal to wash my face too, but you know what? IT IS A BIG DEAL! I mean I would have to get the washcloth out of the cabinet, wait for the water to get hot, splash my face, lather in the soap, spend 15 minutes rinsing the soap off of my face, blindly reach for the towel, dry my face, THEN since I would have a squeaky clean face I would feel obligated to put lotion on, and since I put lotion on, I might as well put on some of that expensive under eye cream, and oh yeah, can’t forget about the age spot cream that I have used all of 4 times in the last 2 years, so I have to put that on as well and by this time it’s midnight and I’m cranky and tired and all I really wanted to do was JUST GO TO BED IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!


Plus the fact that I have somewhat-dry skin, so I don’t have to worry about breakouts, is why I hardly ever wash my face at night…

…until these guys came along and changed my mind about pre-bed face washing.


Those wonderful POND’S people sent me some of their face towelettes (I love saying towelette! Moist towelette, anyone?) to try for 30 days, so I did. AND I LOVES THEM. Really. They are already wet (well, moist ) and they take off makeup that I didn’t even know I was wearing. Easy peasey! 30 seconds of rubbing the soft little guy on my face and I’m ready to head for the bed – woohoo! No rinsing required, and I don’t feel like there was any residue or anything. Just squeaky clean goodness all around. Sometimes afterwards I would do the whole lotion routine, but I figured if my face was clean, that was good enough. I’ve already got them on my shopping list for my next drugstore run, so I will be buying more of these.

I don’t have any to give away because I used all 30 of the ones that came in my package, but if you go here, you can print off a coupon for $1.50 off of one package and see some cool stuff on their website.

Now, do you have something you need to confess? Do you skip the face washing thing at night like I do? Do you steal candy from your coworkers secret stash? Do you watch trashy Lifetime Movies when no one else is around? Come on, ‘fess up!!

  1. You are SO CUTE!
    this was hysterical.

    yes, sometimes, I skip the ole bedtime routine…cuz I too get lazy…I should turn in at least 30 minutes before I want to crawl into bed but I hate ending my day…it’s FINALLY MY time to chill, knit…hang out…relax…boo for the face washing.

    I used to do all that after I got home from work…. all the prep type stuff..than I was done….so I just laid off wearing makeup and now I don’t feel guilty….HA

    those “moist towelettes” are cool…. WAY COOL.

    thanks for sharing

    I love most of my toddler’s shows and movies probably more than he does!!! they are so cute! and we sing the songs together…i sing them at work too…(but that’s just cuz it’s always stuck in my head)

    That and I love Pixar movies to DEATH.


  2. I never wash my face at night either. Even when I used to wear a lot of makeup. And look, 20 years older than you and my face is still here!! But I have to brush my teeth every night, and I have to wash my face every morning.

    You know, I think those little towelettes are becoming the wave of the future. I see them in more and more cleaning-type supplies. My friend has Pledge ones, which I would love to get, but I still have 2 cans of Pledge to use up (can you say Costco?)

  3. My confession? I rarely wear makeup! 😀 But when I do, I too sometimes skip washing it off at night if I’m too tired, and I don’t usually wash my face at night when I’m not wearing makeup.

    Teeth? Always brushed. (But I don’t always floss. Shhh, don’t tell my dentist.)

  4. I don’t wash my face at night either! I’ve made it a new year’s resolution on occasion, but it’s never stuck. Neither has the one about flossing daily.

    Those moist towlettes are great (along with all the other disposable cleaning cloths) but they have to be wreaking havoc on the environment (both the cloths and the plastic packaging to keep them moist). So I try not to use them. Sorry, didn’t mean to be preachy there, but I’m trying to be at least a little light green! Maybe a seafoam green…
