File it under FOMO (fear of missing out), but I require a steady stream of "newness" on a daily basis -- an anti-routine of sorts. I don't see movies more than once, I need a weekly supply of fresh pop music. Choosing a bottle of wine I’ve already sampled makes me feel like I'm wasting an opportunity to try something different. (This all may be genetic.)
So when I decided to ONLY use the new NeoStrata MEN skincare line for an entire month and nothing else, I thought it would last a week. Luckily, I held out, because I looked so “refreshed” people (more than one!) accused me of flirting with Botox. And everything fit on my swath of the bathroom cabinet quite handily because the tubes are all skinny (my travel kit stays skinny, too).
