The person who coined the phrase "beauty comes from within" was obviously someone without a well stocked make-up bag! Be that as it may,there are days when I'm nearing my 25th birthday (again) that I fear there might be some truth to the saying and figure my clogged arteries and jiggly arm fat probably aren't doing a whole lot for my outer beauty. The outcome of this is the promise to get some use out of my gym membership and after blowing the dust and cobwebs off my gym bag, off I go full of healthy resolve!
Such was the case a couple of days ago after seeing an unfortunate picture of myself (note to self, stop standing next to skinny people in pictures) and vowing once again to become a gym rat - or at least make it to the gym a couple of times a week so the people that work there will stop giving me the welcome speech on the rare occasion I do show up.
I went, I worked out hard and was a very self-satisfied sweaty mess and ready for a shower so I could get back to the office. Uh oh, problem - no towel. Now I don't belong to one of those fancy gyms where they have a towel service, I was even willing to kill a tree and use a whole bunch of paper towels but as I discovered, no paper towels, they have air dryers for heavens sakes! So my choices became: a) no shower and go back to work a big stinky mess; b) shower and run around the change room naked to air dry; c) shower and stand around naked in the bathroom using the hand dryer to dry myself; or d) none of the above because I would rather jam a hot poker in my eye than be naked in public! Luckily there was an option E - I had a package of Marcelle Cleansing Cloths in my bag and here's something they're going to want to add to the packaging, not only do they remove makeup, they remove sweat and gym dirt very nicely!
I'd like to say that's the only strange thing I've ever done with a cleansing cloth but they are actually handy little buggers! I've used one to clean off my keyboard after they let another employee with questionable hygiene use it for the day when I was out of the office. I've used one to get rid of a really awful perfume after one of those kamikaze perfume spritzer ladies attacked me at a department store. And I've used one to even out a wobbly table leg! Oh, and I use them to take off makeup - duh!
The moral of this story is - keep a packet of Marcelle Essentials Cleansing Cloths in your purse (or your gymbag) you never know when you might have a cleasing cloth emergency! Should I ever have to live in my car, I know what I'm buying a case of!
And of course right now you can save yourself from life's embarrasing moments and promote girl power!
