The Skincare Tag

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!

All of you are tagged! Please leave your link below if you decide to do it so that I can check out your answers too :)


  1. Good answers! I'm pretty lazy with my skincare too (and so glad to hear I'm not the only one!) High end makeup for the win! :P

  2. Hopefully MB Drying Lotion works for you too! It's pretty darn good :)

  3. D: nooo high end skincare! Spend the money on good skin and your makeup will always look good ;)

  4. I agree with high end makeup and I occasionally use my SKII serum to top up when I need a bit of pampering, otherwise it's Oil of Olay all the way. On the subject of toners, all I can say is, I didn't believe in them either when I was in my early twenties, but when your pores get bigger with age, you simply can't ignore that step anymore.

    Pimples on neck btw must be a pain. Keep cleansing and taking care of your neck and decolletage. It's the one thing that gives a woman's age away!

  5. I thought it was going to be horrendous but it wasn't that bad! I can't wait to hear what you think of the Drying Lotion, I'm considering buying it next. Totally agree with your neck tip! I've become really conscious of taking my products down onto my neck and chest.

  6. Really nice post :)

  7. After reading your post, I did the tag! :)

  8. Love reading this tag! Your skincare tip is probably the most original I have heard. I definitely agree though it is such a neglected part of the face/body although it is definitely one of the most important (since it ages faster then any other part of the body apparently).
