But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
I rarely go to bed on first dates, but I might have to reconsider that, because over night masks are the best thing that ever happened to my skin.
Are you not that into beauty either? So glad we can finally talk about this. In our time having *good skin* is as important as having your morning coffee and to some it comes as natural. I am not that kind of person. I like shortcuts. But, as I experienced the hard way in my teenage ears, shortcuts don´t take you very far when it comes to your skin. So when Instagram a few years ago made me real conscious about my skin again, I was a strong opponent to the trend. I was gonna keep on washing my face with soap and that was that. But, like with all trends that you say you will never try (here’s looking at you bicycle shorts and strong neon colors) I dipped my toe into the beauty pool and fell in.
This is not a story about how I found my passion though. I am still not very good at the thing we call ‘beauty’ and I still like to take shortcuts. So, to all of you who can relate to this, hear me out on this. This fall, with the Swedish autumn messing up my face, making it desert dry, I found the one thing that hardy takes any time at all and makes a difference you can touch (like litterary). It’s called night masks.
“Over night masks are like short cuts”
But let’s take tequila shots and shortcuts out of the equation for a short while. To me, masking is something I do when I have the time, and to be honest, there are a lot of things I’d rather do when I have some time over. So, doing it while I am a sleep is like being offered some extra time in a day. And who doesn’t like to wake up feeling moist as fudge, beauty lover or not?
Ever wondered how people who drinks seventeen tequila shots in one night wakes up with no trace of those shots in his or hers face? I bet you they use a good night mask. I know that, because I’ve been that person (I may exaggerated on the number of tequila shots but who the hell counts right). This is a true story, I would not lie to you.
