We all like to think we’re carefree and easy going, but the truth is there’s a bit of a perfectionist in all of us. Maybe just a sliver, maybe a lot, but if your inner perfectionist isn’t getting the pampering it needs, you could be on the fast track to frazzled. So, how do you know if you’re craving a little more control? Check all that apply:
You always read online reviews before trying a new restaurant
You care more about the results of a product than the experience of using it
You’re willing to pay more for things if they’re brand name
How something looks is just as important as what it does
You prefer classic styles over trends
During the holidays, your house has to be the prettiest one on the street
Speaking of holidays, your shopping is usually done before Black Friday
You’ve taken clothes to the tailor more than once for the perfect fit
You prefer clean scents like linen, light florals, and lemon verbena
Your friends are always saying you look put together
You schedule time each week to clean your house
A good amount of what you wear is dry clean only
You would never buy a used car; you prefer to lease or buy new with a warranty
You definitely have a competitive side
Failure is one of your biggest fears
If you relate to this list, your inner perfectionist should be calling the shots when it comes to pampering. You’re looking for tried-and-true pampering experiences and products with the absolute best ingredients, nothing trendy, no fads, just results. And if the packaging looks high-end, even better.
Would fancy face masks be good enough for your high standards? We think so. Pearlfectionist™ Exfoliating Face Mask uses pearl powder and kaolin clay to gently exfoliate skin for a more radiant look while rich cocoa and shea butters keep skin soft. Follow with Hot & Gold™ Firming Face Mask. It has real colloidal gold and peridot for visibly younger looking skin.
When the Posh Content team (all three perfectionists if there ever were any) need a mid-day refresh, we declutter our desks—it feels so good to throw stuff away—and then take a minute to pamper with a little Posh Boss™ Big Fat Yummy Hand Crème scented with creamy vanilla, sweet cassis, and peony.
