Back in college I was recruited to attend a Mary Kay beauty night as a model. At first I was flattered, until I realized that about twenty Mary Kay consultants were gathered to try and sell their wares to just one person- me. Anyway, that night I learned that every night you don't wash your face adds x amount of years of aging to your skin. I am not sure if I believe it since I should look like I am 80 by that formula- but I still guiltily think of that "factoid" every night I go to sleep with my make up still on. I was running some sort of non face washing record until I found the Tassi. It was when I looked at my skin and contemplated spending $200 for a facial at the Bliss Spa I found the Tassi and thought "Duh! Just start washing your face!"
You see, the one reason I hate to wash my face is that I hardly ever have a headband and hair tie nearby. I have always had shortish hair with bangs and short layers that get in the way when I try to wash my face. So, rather than spend 10 minutes digging through makeup cases and drawers I just skip washing altogether.
Since I got my Tassi about a month ago, I have washed every night! It sits atop my make up bag and takes one second to put on. I wash my face without any hair in the way or clips falling out mid-rinse. As a result, my skin is visibly grateful to have the Tassi. Take that $200 facial!
I do feel a little silly when I wear it, but I guess not everyone can look as fab as the girls in the Tassi video.
If pink just isn't your fav, check out their other colors. You can use it for facials and applying makeup too. I also find it useful for the mornings I hop in the shower and don't wash my hair (every other day). I slip on the Tassi so it keeps my hair out of the way and dry while I wash every where else. And for you hot roller ladies? I think it would be great to wear over the rollers to keep them in place till you are ready for them to come out- I was never good at pinning them in tight enough that they would stay in place for very long.
The terry cloth is very soft and easily tossed in the washer should you get it messy with makeup. The elastic band keeps it steady while there is plenty of terry fabric so your hair doesn't get smooshed. For example, a few times a week I manage to wake up on my non-hair washing day without bedhead! And using the Tassi to wash up doesn't mess my hair at all.
