The Skincare Series - The Skincare Tag!


So today as part of The Skincare Series I thought I'd share with you this lovely little skincare tag I came across. I haven't done a tag for a while and thought this one would be a great little addition to my Skincare Series. I tag all of you to do the tag and please send me the links if you do!

Describe your skin care routine in 5 words.
Repetitive, Soothing, Calming, Hydrating and Moisturising 

What's your skin type?
I have really sensitive skin due to suffering from eczema. I've been known to have reactions from products I've used regularly without any problems. I've woken up a few times with allergic rashes or a swollen face. I also have dry skin which is always worse in the winter and can also be brought on by my eczema. I also suffer from really bad redness under my cheek bones which I hate!
What's your favourite skin care product?
At the moment I really love my La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water. It's just got so many uses. I use it after cleansing, to set my makeup, refresh and hydrate my face during the day and sooth my face if it's particularly red or sore. 

Top blemish zapper
I don't use anything! I'm lucky enough to not suffer badly from blemishes and if the odd one crops up it normally gone down fairly quickly.

Face wipes yay or nay?
Nope! I've used them in the past on holiday and festivals but I always find them a bit scratchy and they often make my eyes sting. After finding out more about them I much prefer to use a cleanser which I know is good for my skin. 

High-end skin care or high-end make-up?
High end skincare. I'd rather pay more for skincare and have a good base to apply my makeup. Weather you use drug store or high end makeup it won't look flawless unless you have a good base to apply it to first. Saying that, there are some great drug store skincare gems out there!
What's the most unusual skin care product you've tried?
ooo I dunno. Some of the Lush facemasks can be pretty odd because they look and smell like food!

You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick up one item - what is it?
Hmmm possibly La Roche Posay Serozinc as I love the La Roche Posay Thermal Water so I will most likely love that too!

Tell us your top skin care tip.
Just to keep on top of the routine you choose for you as that is the best way to achieve good results. Oh, and to establish a routine with products that suit your skin type. I think it's also important to remember that some products take time for the results to be seem so don't give up on products after only using them a few times.
It's also really important to remember to drink loads of water (something I'm so, so bad at!) and incorporate plenty of fruit and veg in to your diet :)

I tag you all and please send me your links!

  1. Great post! I totally agree with you about high end skin care over high end make up! x

  2. I would also choose high end skin care, because if you have pretty skin, you wont need as much makeup.
