Beauty TAG Skin Care

Wooohooo! This is the first time I have ever been tagged so I am very excited about doing this post!! Unfortunately skincare seems to be the part of beauty that I am most rubbish at, so this should be interesting. I would firstly like to say thank you to  Charlotte (who's blog will be linked below) for tagging me, I absoloutely adore her blog and read it all the time.

Describe your skincare routine in 5 words?
Lazy, Cheap, Simple, Optimistic and Lazy. Ok, so I cheated and used the same word twice but lazy is literally the best word to describe my skincare routine. I always start off with good intentions but slowly and surely I get lazy and end up dropping things from my routine. Most of my skincare products are quite purse friendly as well but I do really want to use more high end products. 

What's your skin type?
Pretty normal to combo to be honest. I do get patches of dry skin, normally around my nose and occasionally on my cheeks. I don't often get oily but when I do it tends to be on my eyelids and T- zone. 

Top Blemish Zapper?
This is easy. It has to be Lush's Grease Lightning. This stuff is magical! I recently did a review of this if you want more details.

Face Wipes, yay or nay?
Oh this is a hard one. As I said I am very lazy, so when I am feeling particularly lazy that is when the face wipes come out but on a day to day basis they are a definite no for me! 

Toner, yay or nay?
I do have a few toners, all of which I just switch between but I am not a massive fan of any of them. I do really want to find a good toner though so if anyone knows any good ones then let me know!?

High end skincare or high end make up?
I think budget make up brands do really great dupes for a lot of high end products so I would have to say high end skincare. I don't think high end skincare can be as easily copied as make up can. 

What's the most unusual skincare product you've tried?
When I was younger I use to swear by using toothpaste as a way to combat spots. I can't actually remember if it worked but what I do know is that it dried out your skin loads!!

Tell us your top skincare tip:
It would have to be drink lots of water and always take your make up off before you go to sleep! Both of these are things that my mum has been telling me for years and I have only recently started listening to them so thank you mum!!

So that is my first tag over!! Thanks again Charlotte for tagging me! When it came to choosing who to tag I had a really hard time, I read so many and just couldn't pick. I have managed to pick a few people though and they are:

                         Hannah from
                                Emily from
                                           and Elena from

Hope everyone tagged joins in and hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading,

  1. Loved reading your answers - I used to use toothpaste as well - that was a blast from the past :o). Xx

  2. Why are face wipes a Nay for you? I have never used them; all right, maybe once, but those ones were particularly bad...
