The Skincare Tag

Hey Everyone,
I got tagged by Fay to do the Skincare Tag which I was quite excited about because even though I struggle badly with my skin *sob* I love skincare and trying out new products. Here are the questions!
Describe your skincare routine in 5 words
Cleanse, Exfoliate, Tone, Target and Moisturise

What's your skin type?
This I always struggle with, I have acne but my skin is actually not oily. Normal/slightly combination.

What's your favourite skincare product?
I love Lush Angels on bare skin cleanser, it's perfect! The only cleanser which doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and dried out after, it's also for every skin type. If my Clarisonic counts then that too as when I used to use it regularly I noticed a bit difference and I think I'm going to try and work it back into my routine.

Top blemish zapper
I have so many 'blemish zappers' I'm sure I will do an in depth post at some point. I'm going to go for The Body Shop tea tree oil in the little green bottle it works amazing for the price!

Face wipes yay or nay?
Nay! I never ever use them I just don't see the point for me to plus they're not good for your skin anyway when you use them to actually 'clean' your face.

High end skincare or high end makeup?
I love both but I think I will go for high end skincare because I think it's really important to treat your skin well and look after it and for me, I try and use higher quality products because they work better for me, but obviously it does depend on what the product is.

What's the most unusual skincare product you've tried?
Not sure if it counts as 'usual' but the most 'different' product I've ever tried is the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed face mask which is self heating so when you put it on and rub it in it heats up, it feels quite strange!

You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item - what is it?
Ooh, um, I will have to go with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. I've always been intrigued by it.

Tell us your top skincare tip
I always recommend using scrubs and masks regularly. I always try to use a face mask once or twice a week depending on what it is. It really refreshes and cleanses deep down into your pores making your skin look and feel cleaner, clearer and brighter. As well as scrubs being important to get all the dead skin cells off the surface! It amazes me how many people just wash their face and that's it, I think it makes such a difference! 

So those are my answers! The bloggers I am tagging are:
Tori from Tori Brownies

Let me know below what your favourite skincare products are or anything you think I should try!


  1. I personally love face wipes for removing the top to mid layer of makeup. I find that after using them, a liquid makeup remover, and finally wash my face then my skin is squeaky clean! :)

  2. lovely tag post! might have to borrow it for a youtube video!

  3. I dislike face wipes as well, they don't remove all my makeup >:( I find oil cleaners work much better:) I really like your blog design, and your content is very nice!Subscribed~
