I sometimes car pool to work with my sister. Typically I’m like an old bag lady so I have a tote and a purse and another tote and a makeup bag and a plastic bag…yeah, I carry around a lot of rubbish.
Anyway, when I car pool with my sister I typically toss everything in the back seat and that includes my purse. I’m not one of those people that constantly has to have my iPhone in my hand. It’s not a third appendage for me and I’m ok if I don’t have it attached to my hand 24/7 365. If it happens to be out of my hand for a few hours I don’t break out into a cold sweat and hyperventilate. I actually feel more relaxed when I don’t have it in my hand because I don’t feel inclined to reply to the dozens and dozens of work e-mails or crazy amount of texts my friends send me, etc…I can just breath easier.
Moral of the story is when I toss my purse in the back seat it’s likely my phone is in my bag and I won’t remove it until the end of my work day if I’m in my office and not out and about. If I do have to make a call my sister’s phone is typically handy as she keeps it in a compartment by her hand while she’s driving.
But she HATES when I’m using her phone and I can’t blame her. Why? Because she’s a minimal makeup girl. She doesn’t use foundation and she’s more a natural, minimalist with a little blush, mascara, and go. Where as I’m the complete face girl. So whenever I use her phone my makeup smears off on it and I get the screen all smeared and disgusting. Come on, admit it, you know your phones are looking all kinds of gross too!
My own phone has a screen protector but it gets smeared and I even have moments where my foundation literally transfers onto the screen. So not pretty! I rub it off with a little screen cloth I have handy. But I was interested to see Well-Kept Screen Cleansing Towelettes launch on Sephora recently. I had a moment of, “Why the hell is Sephora selling screen wipes?!” But after reading the info about these I was intrigued and now I want to try them!
So these will set you back six bucks for a packette of $15 wipes. And what they do is not only clean oil and makeup from your cell phones and other devices but also prevent blemish and acne outbreaks as that cell glued to your ear has a buildup of all kinds of gross and it is touching your face every day so using the wipes will prevent that oil from transferring to your face. Pretty nifty.
I kinda thought it was a cool idea.
