The Skincare Tag

Skincare products for the skincare tag
Hey Lovelies,
Recently I was tagged by Laura from Tease Flutter Pout and Beck from Life Looks Perfect to do the Skincare Tag. As I love skincare as well as tags, I thought this is perfect post for me. The tag consists of 10 questions all about skincare so lets get started!
1. Describe your routine in five words
Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse, Moisturise
(Let me explain: I wear a ton of make up pretty much every day and my skincare routine mainly consists of removing the layers upon layers of slap I cake on my poor old face)
2. What's your skin type?
My skin type is combination. I have an oily t zone but the rest of my skin can feel pretty dry.
 3. What's your favourite skincare product?
Oooohhh that's an easy one for me to answer, it has to be the Clarins Multi Active Day and Night Cream. They are by far the best moisturisers I have ever used and ones I will always repurchase. You can get the Clarins Multi Active creams for different skin types and they do an amazing job at moisturising your skin and fighting the signs of aging.
4. Top Blemish Zapper? 
That's another easy one for me to answer! It's got to be the Clinique Clear Blemish Gel. I've been using this for years and even though it does tingle slightly when you apply it, it does a great job at drying out spots!
5. Face Wipes - Yay or Nay?
Definitely Nay! I only use face wipes to wipe my hands or clean the handles of my make up brushes.
6. Toner -  Yay or Nay?
That's an interesting one. I used to cleanse, tone and moisturiser religiously but over the years I have got a little lazy so that's a step I often skip in my skincare routine now. Naughty I know! I sometimes use my Melvita Witch Hazel Virginiana Water but I have to admit I am not very consistent with it.
7. High End Skincare or High End Make Up?
Can I say both? I don't mean this in a braggy way but most of my make up and skincare is high end. However there certainly are some gems on the high street, such as the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleansers. I think the most important thing is to use what works for you and what you can afford. High end doesn't always mean better, neither does drugstore. Finding products you can afford and that work for you is the most important thing.
8. What's the most universal skincare product you've tried?
That's got to be the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. It's suitable for all skin types and I'm in love! I bought it not so long ago and started seeing improvements to my skin pretty much as soon as I started using it!
9. You're in a pharmacy and can only pick up one item - what is it?
For this question can we please pretend that I am in a pharmacy in France? The first thing that would be going in my basket is a bottle of Bioderma, I really wish it was sold in Boots or Superdrug over here!
10. Top Skincare Tips
My number one skincare tip would have to be don't use sunbeds. I have ruined my skin by going on sunbeds when I was young, dumb and didn't know any better. Now my skin is covered in age spots and dark marks which I hate and only full coverage concealer can really cover them up. 
Other that that my skincare tips are the obvious ones: Drink lots of water, don't sleep with your make up on no matter how tired or drunk you are and make sure you moisturise daily. Simples.
I hope you've enjoyed reading this post, thanks again to Becky and Laura for tagging me. If you've enjoyed reading this and decide to do the tag too, please let me know as I'd love to read your answers!

  3. Great post, Nuala!

    I completely agree with making sure to wash off all of your makeup off your face before going to sleep. Falling asleep with all that mess on my face clogging up my pores just makes me cringe!
    But I'm curious, why you are against using face wipes?

    Loved reading your answers!

    1. Thank you! I don't think they remove all ther make up and cleanse your skin properly, when I used to use them I found them to make my skin quite sore as well xxx

  5. Great post :) I get very lazy and use face wipes. For instance, I've just been away for a few days and it was so much easier to take wipes than to take lots of products and cotton pads. But my skin hates me for it! x
