I was tagged by Sarah from More Than Adored to do this skincare tag. It was really interesting to read her answers and it seemed easy enough to do so I thought I'd give it a shot :) Sarah is a total skincare junkie and she looks after her skin so I feel a little sheepish telling you guys about my skincare routine as I'm awful at it!
Describe your skincare routine in five words
Lazy, quick, experimental, fragrance-free and clueless.
What's your skin type?
I have combination skin. My cheeks (and especially around my mouth) is dry and my t-zone gets oily during the day.
What's your favourite skincare product?
Moisturisers. I can't live without moisturising my face! My favourite moisturiser at the moment is the La Roche Posay Toleriane as it's so gentle, doesn't have an offensive smell and is fragrance free so it doesn't irritate me :)
Top Blemish Zapper?
I haven't found one that works for me yet although I'm about to start using my Mario Badescu Drying Lotion which has worked for a lot of people.
Face wipes yay or nay?
I used to rely on face wipes to get rid of my makeup but I don't really use them anymore as Bioderma does a better job. I've used some really awful smelling ones and a lot of them break me out so I've stopped using them altogether.
Toner yay or nay?
I'm not a fan of toner. I don't feel "right" when I use toner because I think it's weird that it gets left on my face. I know that there's toners that you can wash off but I'm super duper lazy and that's one extra step that I can't be bothered to do.
High end skincare or high end makeup?
High end makeup for sure! I'm not that fussed about buying high end skincare although I do use mid range products like La Roche Posay, LUSH and Khiels. I love high end makeup though :D
What's the most unusual skincare product that you've tried?
When I was on holidays in China, I tried a hand cream that was a jar of spherical cream blobs made out of crushed pearls and gold flakes suspended in some sort of jelly-like substance. It was really odd and kind of creeped me out as the cream blobs were made to look like pearls.
You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item - what is it?
Bioderma. We pay like double the price here in Australia so I would stock up on it if I ever found myself in a French pharmacy.
Tell us your top skincare tip?
Clean your neck! I know that sounds weird but if you think about it, we blend our foundation down onto our necks to prevent foundation lines so it only makes sense that we need to include our necks into our skincare routine. I know that if I ever forget to clean my neck from makeup (which I do!), I can get pimples and it's really gross as my neck scars quite easily. We spend heaps of time and money to make sure that our face looks at its best so we should look after our necks (and décolletage's) too!
