"This foam isn't quite as creamy as I remember," I thought as I dispensed the mousse from the can I'd just grabbed. "Smells a bit different, too – surely it hasn't gone off?" And as I ran the light mousse through my wet hair, my glance fell on another bronze-y coloured tin on the corner of my sink.
That's what I get for choosing a traditionally-for-hair mousse texture as a body product instead (mousse is easier to distribute evenly than lotion is – anyone remember Olay Quench body mousse?). #nocaffeineyetthatday #absentminded #similarpackaging #oneofthesethingsisnotliketheother #beautyoops
Putting Jergens Natural Glow No-Odour Foaming Daily Moisturizer (I reviewed it here; from $8.99, drugstores) in my hair instead of Pantene Silky Moisture Whip Moisturizer and Styler ($8.99, well.ca) – a thick, creamy conditioning mousse much more appropriate for dry or damaged tresses – was not a catastrophic event. I just stuck my head under the bathtub tap to wash my hair again, and was consequently late for something (there's always something). But it was a #stupidmove. Now I've put these tins far enough away from each other that I won't make that mistake again.
Ever done something dumb like that yourself? Squeezed ointment onto your toothbrush instead of toothpaste? Soaked a cotton pad with glycolic acid toner instead of eye makeup remover? Anything like that?
We won't judge. We might laugh, but we won't judge. Promise.
