Being a woman is time consuming and expensive. First you’ve got to have the right haircut and not just any cut but a style. Then you’ve got the clothes, I mean what woman doesn’t need clothes. Where men can have black, brown and grey pants with some shirts women need a complete wardrobe. Then it’s makeup and that’s often more than lip gloss. After we’ve got the look down pat we’ve got to smell good and what better way to achieve that then body wash, spray, lotion and perfume.
Being an asthmatic I have to be careful of the fragrance I use. Several years ago when I had to go to a fancy black tie, ball gown affair I knew my regular vanilla body lotion wouldn’t cut it so I had to bite the bullet, carry my inhaler and go in search of something I could use. After an evening of spritzing, smelling, wheezing and coughing, use inhaler and repeat I finally came to the ONE that didn’t cause any reaction. Chanel No. 5. That thing cost me a fortune but I’ve still got the bottle and only pull it out on special occasions but I found it.
Now that I know what I can handle I can shop in the comfort of my own home at beautyencounter.com. What’s even better is I can shop for makeup as well so it’s a one stop shop for all things beauty.
