I was thinking this morning as I rubbed my bi-daily dose of moister into my skin, what exactly do cosmetic companies mean when they tell you to rub “a pearl sized amount” of lotion onto one’s face? Do they know that pearls come in a range of sizes (and shapes for that matter)? Are they talking about a 10mm pearl? A 20mm pearl? Something in the middle like a 14mm? Or are we talking seed pearls? Really, there are so many different sizes of pearls, I am convinced they should find a better example.
