The Skincare Tag..

So browsing through Blogger on my Sunday at work i came across this post from the Savvy Sunday blog post from Makeup Savvy, i loved her answers and thought as it fits so well in my skincare diaries theme i shall do the tag too :)

Heres my answers, Hope you enjoy it..

Describe your skincare routine in 5 words
Cleanse, tone, spritz, serum, moisturize :) 

What's your skin type?
Acne prone, fair and combination. 

What's your favourite skincare product?
Kate Somervilles cleanser for acne prone skin, it literally is the only product Ive known to completely clear my skin. 
Space NK used to stock it but now I cannot find it in this country to save my life :( come back pleaseeeeee!   

Top blemish zapper
Sudocrem. I swear its the cheapest product known to man to completely heal spots, Otherwise Dr Nick Lowe Spot gel is a good one to help banish the nasties! 
The gel really does reduce spots over night and will actually remove them within 2-3 days.

Face wipes yay or nay?
Ocassionally i run to these, if i know im going to be away for a night and wont handle the chore of lugging around a bazillion different skincare items than yes these are a go to for me, but for everyday use then no i would always stick to my hefty bottles of miracle potions to keep my skin clean!

Toner yay or nay?
YES, i believe toner realllyyy works on cleaning your skin thoroughly, aslong as you opt for one without alcohol then your fine, alot of people think they strip the skin which is why you should always choose carefully according to your skin type with toner.
Without a doubt, every time i toner my skin after cleansing, there is always, no matter what traces of makeup left on the cotton pad, so it just goes to show that you might think youve removed your makeup but theres always some pitched up on your face ready for an overnight stay at camp PORE. 

What's the most unusual skincare product you've tried?
I cant say ive honestly tried anything really unusual, ive tried alot but there isnt anything that screams to mind on this one, pretty boring i know!
According to Makeup Savvy she has used snail cream on her face, i cant say im as adventurous as that im afraid!

You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item - what is it?
Most likely BioDerma, yes i know every blogger and there dog has this product but im sadly one of the few that hasnt ever actually tried it, i have the dupey version the Loreal - Micellar Solution which is AMAZING at removing your makeup so if its dupe worthy of the BioDerma than im sure BioDerma is going to be even better, so that would be my choice :)

Tell us your top skincare tip
Muslin clothes, facial brushes, flannels etc, in the bath/shower USE THEM.
They do such an excellent job at really cleaning your skin, make sure your not to rough or use a product thats to abarasive for your skin, i.e cleansing milks with these are fantastic as the tool is doing most the work rather than the product stripping your skin of all its loveliness!

Well thankyou guys for reading this post, please share with me any of your top tips related to these questions, or anything skincare related in general in the comments bar below :)
