la toilette de madame

teh l4m3 tagged me with this même yesterday. Omigod! This must be what it feels like when Vanity Fair asks you to be in the "My Stuff" sidebar for their next issue!

1. body soap?

Mostly bar; dependent upon season. In winter: something gentle, like Jergen's Mild. In summer: something hardcore, like Safeguard (I sweat like a pig when it's humid).

If I have a date, I reach for my ~H2O+ Sea Salt Body Wash.

2. face wash?

~H2O+ Face Oasis Cleansing Water

3. shampoo?

I alternate between four products: Citré Shine, ~H2O+ Sea Marine, Aveda Shampure, and Aveda Madder Root.

4. moisturizer?

~H2O+ Aquafirm Replenishing Night Cream, Neutrogena Intensified Day Moisture (you guessed it... one for night; one for day)

5. cologne?

When worn, it's seasonal. In winter: Herrera for Men. In summer: Davidoff Cool Water (very rarely).

6. deodorant/anti-perspirant?

Mitchum Sport Clear Gel anti-perspirant. Bring on the Alzheimer's.

7. toothpaste?

Colgate Total

8. mouthwash?


9. razor?

Gillette Sensor Excel (seriously, what is the point of more than two blades?)

10. shaving cream?

Gillette Foamy

11. aftershave?

Clinique Post-Shave Soother for Men

12. missed anything?

Hell yes! Eye care. I'm 36. The crow's feet approacheth... Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Cream; Oil of Olay Revitalizing Eye Gel.

And what about conditioner? Very important--especially if you have a beard like I currently do. (I have corresponding conditioners for all listed shampoos except for Aveda Madder Root.)

13. whose bathroom shall we raid next?

Whitney Houston's

Seriously 3 blades actually get the job done faster and better. but shaving is sooo 1870's.

If anyone wants to know what things are not on the list, but in MR's bathroom, contact me privately.

ps. how come no HNT for you??
pps. you hear about Clack & mine baseball game games? $9.60 a beer? WTF!

I didn't see any hair styling products and if I'm not mistaken you use KMS products.

madamerouge said...


YJA, you know I have no hair! (Hello! Otherwise, I couldn't afford ~H2O+ or Aveda!)

Jooles: beer = the only reason Clack went to the baseball game

Kunstemæcker: I've always found it difficult to trim around a beard or goatee with a triple-blade razor.

Ooh la la.

I'm still waiting for the goofball whose answer to almost every question is "Dr. Bronner's".
