Whenever I hit the tarmac of a new country/city/town/foreign territory, I immediately navigate myself towards one of two places.
1) A grocery store. I need to check out the local candy selection -- flavours alone will tell you more about a population of people than anything else.
2) A drugstore. I need to check out the local skincare/makeup selection -- that alone will tell about their shipping policy.
The last time I went to Europe I was shamefully unversed in any sort of self-grooming policy (except for lipgloss), so this time I made sure to do my due diligence. Special thanks to Phil from Mirror Reality for sending me a rather...extensive list of what to get. I purchased selectively.
Pardon the blur -- Instagram is not the best for highres photos -- but this is everything I purchased in an apotheke.
For a roundup of all the moisturizers...
I look oddly intense in this still.
I realize now that my head looks oddly orange -- it's because my blinds only go as far down as my neck, so my body is being completely washed out by the daylight. I'm not an Oompa Loompa, as much as I'd like to live in a chocolate factory.
