The Skincare Tag

Kat from Tales of a Pale Face posted this tag a few weeks back and I've been meaning to do it ever since, as I'm a total skincare obsessive! This was really fun to answer so do feel free to help yourself if you'd like to complete it, although I'm sure Kat would appreciate it if you could link back to her post, too.
The Skincare Tag

Describe your skincare routine in five words:
Cleanse, moisturise, weekly mask, sleep.
What's your skin type?
Contrary. My skin is really oily, to the point where even with powder I look shiny within an hour, but I also get dry patches and my eczema means my skin is sensitive to certain ingredients, too.
What's your favourite skincare product?
Tough question! I don't know if I can choose just one favourite, but I think I'm going to go for my Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm as it seems to agree with my skin really well and is a good price, too.
Top blemish zapper:
Tea tree oil and plenty of water.
Face wipes - yay or nay?
Nay. No no no. I don't even own them! Even after a night out I'll cleanse my face properly. I just don't feel clean after using a face wipe, they just shift things around on your face. Blergh.
Toner - yay or nay?
Yay but I rarely remember to use it! I'm currently trialling Wonder Pore by Etude House and probably remember it roughly one in four times...
High-end skincare or high-end makeup?
I have to agree with Kat here; if I could afford to invest in one, it would be skincare, as healthy, well-looked-after skin will need less make-up or even look nice without make-up. There's only so much even good make-up can do for bad skin!
What's the most unusual skincare product you've ever tried?
I don't think I've ever really tried any especially unusual skincare, although I'm not squeamish at all and would try most things. Maybe that phase I went through at about 16 of making my own facemasks out of honey and eggs...
You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item - what is it?
I have no idea! I'd probably pick something with pretty packaging or an intriguing name, let's be honest.
Tell us your top skincare tip:
Drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and get enough sleep; as the largest organ in your body, your skin needs looking after and mine is always better when I'm healthy on the inside! You also feel much better when you look after yourself. A close second is wearing sunscreen - noone wants to end up looking like Madge!

  3. Great post :). I agree with your top blemish zapper tip, plenty of water seems to sort out most skin woes! xx

    Almost Delightful

  4. Love this tag, I couldn't resist answering the questions myself so have typed it all up and will probably post it on Tuesday :)
    Couldn't agree more on the face wipes, makes me feel sick thinking about all the years I relied on them and also often went to bed in my makeup if I'd been out..so wrong! Never again.
    Hope you had anice weekend lovely.

  5. Great post! Loved it. Couldn't agree more with the drink loads of water, it's my answer to everything skin related when my friends ask why I never break out!
