Okay, I guess that makes sense. Personally I've never felt the need to look in the mirror while washing. And my face wash (singular product) lives in the shower.

I use a natural bristle brush and creamy body wash. Whenever I use a gel, my skin regrets it. I tried castille soap a few weeks ago, and my skin mostly hated it. I have a million dry patches right now.

Scents used to not be a big deal, but I tried a newer dove scented one, and my skin hated that too. I was so itchy. Now I am sticking to unscented stuff till my skin gets back to norma.

I take it you are not using the bristle brush for your crevices, but correct me if I'm wrong.

Once the rain stops though, get inside. Mosquitos will attack you with full force. They like freshly scented bodies.

I'm super serious about my washcloths. I use four each day: two in the shower, one for my face at the sink in the morning, and one for my face at the sink in the evening to remove makeup. I only use them once before sending to the hamper, and they're all color coded so that there's no overlap. Serious biz...
And you have color coded hampers, and wash them separately after soaking the rear end ones in bleach for the 1-2 hours needed to sanitize them?

No, that's not necessary. Every week, I wash them all together (along with my towels and bedsheets) on a hot cycle and then I put them in the dryer on a hot cycle. I think they're clean enough after that.
