The Skincare TAG

I was tagged a few weeks back by the lovely Megan at seekmyscribbles.com to do the skincare tag. Here's a little confession... I never used any form of skincare until I met Adam and he took me to the Clinique counter to get clued up on what I needed for my skin! I had no idea what skin type I was, what stuff was best to use or anything! How bad of me!! Now, I know the right formulas that work best, the best brands and the ways to use skincare to get the best from my natural skin base. Go me! 


So, here's the TAG... Feel free to complete it yourself, even if I haven't tagged you! 

Describe your skin care routine in 5 words
Quick, simple, relaxing, inconsistent, refreshing.

What's your favourite skin care product?
I love most things to do with skincare (although I really should use it all more often) but I am currently loving Benefit triple performing facial emulsion
. It's so refreshing to put on first thing in the morning to wake your face up and also contains SPF. Perfect in this heat! 

Top blemish zapper
Definitely Clinique Anti-Blemish Spot Treatment Gel. You can guarentee that at 'that time of the month' I get a spot come up on my chin. So, once I can feel it forming, I stick this little fella on it, it dries the spot up, takes away the redness and voila! I'm spot free in 2 or 3 days rather than having a whopper on my chin for weeks! 

Face wipes yay or nay?
For the ease and simplicity of them, yes. Although I only really use them to take foundation off or just to wipe my skin clean before applying makeup. 

High-end skin care or high-end make-up?
Skin care. I only own a few 'high end' makeup products but find that they're definitely worth the money. Skin care can be great at high street prices too though but the same applies. 

What's the most unusual skin care product you've tried?
Maybe not unusual but the warming face masks are quite unusual. I tried the Sensuous Spice one and it was such a weird but wonderful feeling! 

You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick up one item - what is it?
Probably Bioderma or even the 3 step Clinique set as that is my go-to skincare range! 

Tell us your top skin care tip
If you haven't got a Hot Cloth Cleanser, pop your face over a bowl of boiling water and cover with a towel. The steam will open your pores, wipe away with a clean cloth and after apply a cold flannel to your face to close back up your pores. Easiest and cheapest way to unclog your skin! 
Works every time!!
