I love microfiber cloths! I use them for everything. I use them with face wash to gently scrub my face. I use microfiber turbie twist type towels to dry my hair and to leave it up while I do my makeup or go through my nighttime skincare routine. I use it to dust/clean. I use them in place of swiffer wipes (great money saver and I'm being "green"!). I use it to dry my car. I use it to clean screens (tv, computer monitor, phone screen). I get all my microfiber cloths from The Dollar Tree store. I already have a bunch, but I wish I bought them from Sam's Club or Costco because they have 24 packs and 36 packs for around $10-$12. I paid $1 for each towel, and it's not so bad for the size and quality I got, but I found even thicker, softer, and larger towels in the cleaning section of dollar-only type store. At dollar tree, there are two-packs of microfiber towels that are extremely soft and good quality in the cleaning section (next to all the sponges and dusters); and you get a better deal because you get 2 instead of just one in the beauty section. At the 99 cent store, I didn't see 2-packs, but in the section with the dish towels, there was a big, thick, extra soft microfiber towel which seemed to be the best quality I've found so far. I find that the April brand microfiber hair towel is the best quality turbie twist type hair towel of all the ones I've seen at dollar-only stores. Microfiber requires special care when washing: -do not use fabric softener -use cold water -hang dry or dry with no heat -no dryer sheets (they have fabric softner) -wash with other microfiber stuff only -use less detergent -NO FABRIC SOFTENER

This is a great daytime moisturizer. I got a full size tube at Nordstrom Rack for $7. It's jam-packed with a bunch of great stuff for your skin. Not only does it have sunscreen (SPF 20), it has vitamins C (magnesium ascorbyl phosphate) and E (tocopheryl acetate). Vitamins C and E are great antioxidents that work together to enhance the power of one another. Vitamins C and E have also been shown to enhance the effects of sunscreen. This moisturizer contains 2 peptides (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 and palmitoyl oligopeptide). Both these peptides affect the collagen in your skin positively. It also contains glucosamine HCl. Glucosamine has been shown to stimulate hyaluronic acid synthesis. Hyaluronic acid!
