The Skincare Tag

I was recently tagged by the gorgeous Liza from Glambeautys to do this tag! I LOVE Liza's blog and following her on twitter - make sure you go and get check her out - she is literally stunning and her blog is such a good read!
So without any more rambling here we go - Kirstie does the Skincare Tag .... (few of my face favs in the photo below)

1. Describe your skincare routine in five words.
Easy, Simple, Affordable, Refreshing & Light.

2. What is your skin type? 
I've said this in previously posts before but I think my skin is definitely a combination. I never used to get oily skin but over the last few years I tend to get a little oily on my forehead and a few other patches but also have dry spots around my nose.

3. What is your favourite skincare product? 
Without a doubt Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish I have lost count the amount of times I've raved about this on AYellowBrickBlog, it is just perfect for me, gets all my make-up of and always leaves my face feeling fresher than ever every single day!

4. Top blemish zapper?
I am (touch wood) extremely lucky with spots and don't really get outbreaks.... saying that I've had a few pop up over the last few weeks but I'm blaming that on the hot weather and me keeping my make-up routine the same during it! BUT in the odd occassion in which I get a hideous friend join my face I swear by Clearasil Ultra's Rapid Action Treatment Cream! Helps to reduce your spot and it's redness in just 4 hours! 

5. Face wipes….yay or nay?
If you asks me a few years ago I would say yay yay yay but nowadays I would say nay nay nay! I used these daily all throughout my teens but after using my current skincare products I have realised they weren't actually that great for my face especially for make-up removal! Saying that I do still have some at home for days where I am not wearing any make-up and want to freshen up but I don't include them in my daily routine.

6. Toner….yay or nay?
Liz Earle's Skin Tonic count? Then Yay! This stuff is amazing after cleansing and makes my skin feeling cleaner and brighter before using a moisturiser!

7. High end skincare or high end make up?
I'd pick high-end make-up, just because I am quite lucky with my skin and high-street products work just as well for me as higher end skincare products - so gimme the expensive make-up!!!

8. You’re in a French pharmacy and can only buy one item, what would it be? 
Bioderma Ceraline H20 - everyone cannot stop raving about this stuff so yes that is what I would pick! I've heard it's a rival for Cleane & Polish so would love to compare and make my own decision

9. Top skincare tip. 
Drink lots of water - I think this is my top tip for alot of things but I honestly think that drinking lots of water has so so many benefits and good effects on the body! Another one would be to NEVER sleep in your make-up, oh and try to have at least one day a week make-up free.
