The Lipstick League Question of the Week:
How much time do you spend on your skincare regimen each day?
G's answer: When it comes to both skincare and haircare, I'm a very low-maintenance type of gal and I don't spend nearly as much time as I should on those things! On average, I'd say I probably spend no more than 20 minutes total on skincare per day. I wash my face in the morning, exfoliate (2-3 times a week), apply toner and then a moisturizer or BB/CC cream with SPF and then it's off to apply the rest of my makeup. At night, I wash my face and lately I've been using a micellar water to remove the last traces of makeup that my cleanser might not catch. Then, I usually apply my nighttime moisturizer (or a serum followed by moisturizer) and that's it. Every two weeks or so, I also like a use a mask.

Beautygeeks - If you habitually skip body lotion after your shower because you’re too rushed, this new Jergens Moisturizer for Wet Skin is a game-changer, even more-so than Olay Moisturerinse (discontinued anyway) and Nivea In-Shower Body Milk and Lotions (sorry, Nivea).
Beauty Junkies Unite - In 1983, I used to sneak my brother's Grandma's bottle of Vidal Sassoon shampoo in my bathtub and use it when I wasn't supposed to.
