I don't really have problematic skin but for the last few months I've been engrossed with researching all the best skin care and spa products. Yesterday I finally went out and bought all the things I really wanted and I am sooooo happy! It's really not that much- just some really good facial cleanser, exfoliant, and moisturizer, a few bath bombs and sheet masks too- but now I've got this renewed self-love going on and I love it, I feel awesome. I've never used so many products that I've had to establish a weekly routine but now that I do I'm... excited? I just feel that this is such a strange thing to get happiness from.
I went through that phase when I was 17, so last year. I researched way too much on that, and while I did learn something about myself and came to the conclusion of if I want to pursue a career in that field or not, I still feel like I wasted hours and hours for nothing.
And I was also filling up shopping cart to buy cleansers, creams, shower products and so on lol. But thankfully, I did not actually purchase them at the time.
