I don’t wear any makeup. Who has time? And if I did try to cover up my crazy-dark undereye circles, I’d have to really spackle on the concealer, which would snowball into so much makeup that soon I’d look like Gregg Allman in drag (this stems from an irrational fear of mine that in the wrong light I look like Gregg Allman, and my hair’s tendency to part itself in the middle no matter what I do doesn’t help).
But stll, I like girly things, and it’s fun to at least think about makeup. So when I’m somewhere like Target, I tend to wander down the makeup aisles, and consider products called lip stains, and then put them back, knowing I’d never wear them. But I do sometimes get taken in by skin care products, since if I’m not going to wear makeup, my skin had better look fabulous, non? It was on a just such a recent Target adventure that I saw something called Yes to Carrots C the Difference Exfoliating and Soothing Mud Mask for Dry to Sensitive Skin. It seemed like everything I needed (I need exfoliating! I need soothing!) so I thought, “What the heck. I will say Yes to Carrots.”
Last night I tried it. It’s glamorously old school (mud mask!), and the directions for use actually say, at the end, “Check out your skin and see how pretty it looks!” If anything, I am a Direction Follower, so I did as I was told, and I have to say, it did look good. Plus it was all smooth and soft. Yes to Carrots, indeed. I’m sold. I look forward to their subsequent skin care lines, No to Rutabaga, Tentative Maybe to Water Chestnuts, and I’ll Have to Get Back to You About Pinto Beans.
