The skincare tag!

So, recently my bestest blogging chummy Lisa of Lisahh-Jayne tagged me to do the skincare tag. Now, as much as I love skincare I am a bit rubbish at using it properly and very lazy when it comes to taking care of my face/skin, but I'll give it a go anyway - for those skin-care-a-holics amongst you, please feel free to tell me off & recommend some fabulous products to me! 

So here are the questions!

Describe your skincare routine in 5 words..

Unorganised, slightly lazy, moisturised and cleanse. 

What's your skin type?

I'm going to label it as combination skin! I have a bit of trouble with an oily tzone, my nose and chin are forever oily and I often need to re-powder towards the end of the day. Having said that I can somtimes get dry patches on my forehead  and then if my skin is behaving then somedays I'd even class it as normal (basically, in short I have no bloomin' idea!!) 

What's your favourite skincare product?

Definitely hot cloth cleansers! I'm a massive fan of Liz earle cleanse and polish, but I also love Superdrugs version vitamin-e hot cloth cleanser which is a fraction of the price too! 

Top blemish zapper

My go to blemish zapper is clean and clear's spot treatment, which is a bit of a pain to find in stores but is an absolute godsend! I find it really helps with redness and reducing the size of a spot and actually works! I also really like witch's blemish stick (but be warned, it stings a little) 

Face wipes yay or nay?

Ummmm..... yay? I'm sorry but they are just so easy! I do try to cleanse aswell as remove makeup with wipes and I usually do this but I have been known to purely rely on face wipes on occasion (sorry Lisa!!!!) 

Toner yay or nay?

It's a bit of a nay for me! I used to do the whole cleanse tone and moisturise, but found toning made absolutely no difference to my skin so now I kind of skip that step - if you have any recommendations of something that will make me feel the difference then go ahead! 

High end skincare or high end makeup?

I am generally a big lover of drugstore/high street brands when it comes to both. But I think I'd rather splash the cash on high end skincare as you do need to have a good base before you can have a good face! 

What's the most unusual skincare product you've tried?

Ooh, not too sure on this one. My neighbour once gave my mum a gift of an amazing moisturiser from Russia that had sheeps placenta (TMI?) Anyway, my neighbour swears by it but I'm not quite willing to give it a go!! 

You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item - what is it?

Something that has English writing on? As knowing me I'd probably buy a cream that had some kind of snail remains in it haha. Or Bioderma .. I've heard that's good.
