You have a no-fuss routine.
You put some thought into what products you’re buying, but you wouldn’t consider yourself a skin care maniac. You’re convinced that people who spend more than $15 on a moisturizer have something wrong with them, but occasionally you’ll dabble with Mario Badescu or The Ordinary if you need a little something extra on a budget.
You have more important things to worry about.
You don’t know a thing about skin care, or you just have great skin and have never even thought about it. To you, “washing” your face is a 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner and body wash that sometimes runs down your face when you’re in the shower. It’s not advised, but hey, if you’re too busy, you’re too busy.
You are a skin care queen.
You live for the 10-15 minutes where you can relax with a mud or sheet mask every night. Cetaphil, who? You spend the big bucks on products from Drunk Elephant, La Mer and TATCHA because skin care is self-care.
