Party Ready Skincare

My typical 20 minutes pre-party frenzy in the bathroom
Step 1-RUN into the bathroom, crank up the hot water. While waiting for water to heat up, remove eye makeup with lid + lash wash.

Step 2-Put shower cap on (no time to wash hair again). Quickly wash + exfoliate in one step with fabulous foaming face wash.

Step 3-Apply a juicy layer (6-7 pumps) of triple oxygen instant energizing mask. Grab toothbrush + toothpaste. Brush teeth in the shower while mask foams up (don’t you just love multitasking?)

Step 4-Grab bath poofy thing and load it up with
blood orange + white pepper bath and shower gel. Suds like a maniac. Rinse from head to toe.

Step 5-Hop out of the shower, put on a little bit of toner, look in closet and realize best friend still hasn’t returned my favorite party dress! Think about texting her something sassy, but skip it. No time! Grab something semi wrinkled. Rationalize this wardrobe choice, thinking, “Oh well, it’s going to be dark at the party anyway!”

Step 6-Moisturize and illuminate in 1 step with the youth as we know it concentrate. The pearl illuminators make me look like I’m glowing even though I could fall asleep standing up.

Step 7-Chug a huge coffee, apply concealer and red lipstick. Run out the door without keys. Remember halfway down the stairs and run back to the apartment. Find wallet next to the cookies (big shocker there). Scrape crumbs off the counter. Grab one more cookie for the road. Plan to start post-holiday diet soon….as soon as all the cookies are gone.

Step 8-Repeat nightly until January 2nd.

Does this sound familiar?

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
