Don't You Just Hate It When...

...you don't realize until your mouth is full that you've mistaken your blackhead astringent for your mouthwash?


On the advice of my husband, I'm no longer reading whilst I perform my nightly ablutions.

  1. Oh, oh, oh! I think that might be worse than when I accidentally used ear wax remover instead of eye drops!

    (But it does seem clear how the two of us are friends, doesn't it?)

  2. I once used the stuff I shave my legs with as a face wash, accidentally. That was also unpleasant.

  3. Bleargh! Well, if it smelled like my blackhead astringent it might still be refreshing... With the amount of crap I use on my face and hair it's a miracle things don't get used for cross-purposes more often.

  5. I'm quite self-centered. All I took from this post is that perhaps I should get myself some blackhead astringent. I don't have any. Can I even buy it in the U.S.?! My complexion as a 30-something is worse than it was as a teen and I thought I had every product known to man to try and fight it. But now I need some blackhead astringent.

    Told you I was self-centered.

  7. I could not figure out why my toner wasn't giving me that nicely tingly, clean feeling until I realized it was my eye make-up remover! The Garnier Fresh line makes the products look very similar I swear.

  8. When I was a teen, I had to take a shower in my parents' bathroom b/c Pop was working on the plumbing in mine. While blindly rinsing off the shampoo, I grabbed what SEEMED to be the conditioner bottle and dumped the contents directly to my hair. A second and a "Why the hell does my hair feel suddenly ICKY" moment later I discoverd it was my mother's BABY OIL bottle I grabbed. XP
