You Can NowGet Shower ShieldsTo Protect YourMakeup While YouShower
Now admittedly this isn’t a problem I’ve come across myself, but I’m reliably informed by my makeup wearing acquaintances that the struggle is very real.
So now if you ever find yourself in the unfortunate position of having a fully made-up face, but in desperate need of a shower/hair wash, we’ve got just the thing for you.
Yep, gone are the days of cutting the middle bit out of an umbrella and securing it around your cranium using duct tape, the ShowrShield has got that eventuality well and truly covered.
The gadget, which costs $14.95 (£11.77), is a clear plastic shield - kind of like a cross between a welding mask and a visor - which is secured to the head with velcro pre-shower.
As well as saving you from the perils of panda eyes, Showrshield will also protect facial surgery while it’s healing, eyelash extensions and microbladed brows, all of which you're advised to keep dry in the following days.
Inventor of the useful contraption, Sheridan Elle, said: "I started this company after standing in the shower countless times using my hands as a makeshift shield in an attempt to protect my previously applied makeup (that took me a considerable amount of time and not to mention money to apply) from getting ruined.
"It quickly became part of my beauty regime and saves me countless times when i'm in a rush or just want a shortcut in getting ready."
She added: "It works great for the aftercare and maintenance of recent facial surgery, microblading, and eyelash extensions. Taking care of your procedures post-operation is not only critical but also something that should be done with ease and worry free when healing.”
So, does it actually work? Well according to the team over at Business Insider who gave it a test run, it absolutely does!
“The ShowrShield is one of those products that you see and it looks like a very gimmicky, as-seen-on-TV type of product that you think is gonna totally suck. I am very happy to say that this time it totally worked and actually did what it said it was gonna do. My face was completely dry.
“The literal only problem I had with the ShowrShield was that once you take it off, you do have these line indents on your forehead because of the little rubber that's on it that keeps the water from hitting your face.”
I’m sold. And I don’t even wear makeup.
