That back scrubber thread kinda got me to thinking. My daily routine doesn't seem like a lot (in fact, I consider myself relatively low maintenance) until you start cataloguing it. So I thought I'd type it out and see how much it freaks me out (everything except makeup). All the stuff I use on a regular basis is as follows (daily unless otherwise stated):

Loofah/body puff thing
Super-scrubby loofah (for the rough spots and 3x/wk major exfoliation)
Back scrubber
Shampoo brush
Foot multi-tool (brush/cheese grater/pumice stone/file)
In-shower body lotion
Hair masque (once/wk deep treatment)
Liquid Body Wash
Fancy bar soap (it smells like cotton! sooo good)
Face cleanser
Face lotion with spf 15
exfoliating face masque (3-4x/wk)
peel face masque (once/wk)
blemish spot treatment (as needed)
shaving creme
leave-in conditioner/heat protectant
shimmer body lotion (for special occasions)
Nut butter (for feet&elbows as needed)
Creamy conditioning oil (it's by Nivea - feels like a lotion, soothes my legs after shaving on the occasion that the skin gets irritated)

I think that's about it. I don't wear makeup everyday, but I have tons. The stuff I use about twice a week when I wear makeup is:

tinted lotion

And everyday I use Burt's Beeswax lip balm

(Sogno - I haven't tried the foot scrub yet!)

Plus: all the regular stuff, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, body spray.

Man Sogno, I forgot about the hand lotion. I have a whole treatment system for hands, but that stays in the vanity in my room. Add 3 more products to the list.

And I have a weak spot for perfume. 16, 6 that I restock on a regular basis.

Also, I like shoes and purses. But this stuff doesn't rule my life, I swear. :(

I only have one perfume it's Hermes. Erm and yes Ken, it's in the bathroom. :eek:

My husband has a 30 year old bottle of Chanel no. 5 For Men in the bathroom cabinet. I was at the Chanel counter at the Macy's a couple of weeks ago and asked the girl there if she knew if Chanel no.5 was still being made for men. She looked at me strangely and said no. Now that I think of it, the stuff prolly hasn't been made since she was borned.

I like shoes and purses too but the ones I like are waay too expensive to buy so I'm safe there. Sadly deprived and madly depraved, but safe.

Okay, I have to fess up - it's only 10 perfumes.

Romance - Ralph Lauren
Embrace Today - Mary Kay
Spirit Fix - Skinmarket (lots of ginger)
Very Sexy - Victoria's Secret
Green Tea - Elizabeth Arden
Warm Vanilla Sugar - Bath and Body Works
Journey - Mary Kay
Heaven - Gap
Halppy - Clinique
Pink - Lacoste

And I ordered this stuff that's pheremone based so it smells different on every woman. Mine smells really really sweet. My best friend smells very spicy. And one girl in the room smelled like Pine Sol, no lie.

Lord help me if I start cataloguing everything else I use on a regular basis (nail stuff, and any other extras...). :rolleyes:
