Inevitably, in every hobby/skincare obsession, there’s going to be a honeymoon period where everything is exciting and unknown; when you don’t yet know a BHA from a PHA, when you can’t yet disassemble and reassemble a 15-step routine blindfolded, and when your wallet greets every new shop with a shriek of terror.

When those days of discovery have passed and when the flames of passion (and your wallet) have cooled to a jaded dull glow, then you must ask: What gives you a Skincare Boner?

The Snail Unit answers this question, discusses mullets, nerds out over reducing spider veins, and predictably can’t keep a straight face. Boner. Heh heh heh.
