I often feel like I don't spend nearly as much time dolling myself up and using beauty products as most people do. I could be wrong on this. I have a home waxing kit, but it didn't even work!

I'm pretty basic and don't like to take the time to do all that fussy stuff. Soap and water, shampoo and conditioner, a little mascara and eye shadow, some nail polish and I'm done.

Yeah, I feel that soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, and dry skin lotion are sufficient. I hate the way makeup feels on my face, so I no longer do powder or foundation, but I will wear some eye stuff if I want to look a little nicer.

I'd also like to add that I used to use vanilla body spray as a young teen. But now, I do not use perfumes or scented sprays, partly because of migraine issues, and partly because the smell of most perfumes makes me queasy.

My moisturizer has SPF built in, so that's one less step! :P

I've had botox done, but it was purely for medical reasons: they thought it would help my migraines. (It didn't.)

I forgot to include Botox! I knew I was forgetting something! I've heard of it being used for migraines, with mixed results.

The other on the first question: I use a hair straightener :)

The other on the second question: I have hair removal cream stuff that I use from time to time on my face. My hair is dark and my skin is super sensitive to plucking. :T

I don't feel like I do much, but then I know a bunch of people who literally are lucky if they remember to wake up early enough for a shower, so yeah, I guess I'm in the middle somewhere.

I usually bathe and shower at night. I hate mornings and usually can't wake up any earlier than I have to.

I have to shower before I go out because I have extremely oily skin; if I shower before I go to bed, I basically have to wake up and shower again to not look super greasy. /O\ It sucks because I hate mornings too bleh

I have oily skin too. If I recently took a shower and washed the grease away, my skin rebels shortly after by getting even oilier and shinier. I can't win!

How about nothing of the above. I brush my hair before I go out.
