The question isn't if we become our mothers, but how and when we become our mothers. We all have takeaways from our moms that stay with us, well, forever.
Just take a look in your pantry or medicine cabinets. It's practically a guarantee you buy something on the regular that your mom used to buy. I find the loyalty to a particular mayonnaise to be very polarizing for people.
Me? I am a huge fan of Pond's Cold Cream. Super old school. My mom always used it and I just think it is the very best makeup remover there is. My mom also always used Maybelline Great Lash. Again, huge fan. The pink and green. I think it's under 5 bucks and better than any high end mascara I've tried.
