Years gone by: in need of a shave...
Today I bought myself a new brand of after-shave balm, which I've never tried before but which smells both lovely and manly, and has no artificial preservatives, products derived from mineral oils, or tests performed on animals. I also purchased a face and body scrub, again with a pleasant, slightly woody, man-who-takes-care-of-his-skin type of smell, and finally some razors. The razors I've used before.
Despite the fact that I've only used the face-scrub so far (and my face is feeling lovely, by the way), I feel very good about doing something a little bit indulgent for my skin and therefore my health.
Actually, it isn't really indulgent, it's pretty standard really. But it still makes me feel a bit warmer inside, like I'm pampering myself a bit. I've let my face-scrubbing practices fall by the wayside for far too long!
It feels nice to do something simple and good for myself.
