07/07/13: The Skincare Tag

This tag was started by Kat at Tales of a Pale Face, and I saw Sarah of Sugarpuffish do it recently - in her post she did a universal "you're it", so here's mine! :)

Describe your skincare routine in five words:
Flip-flopping try it all.

What's your skin type?
Dry, sensitive and prone flaking plus spots!

What's your favourite skincare product?
Difficult to choose, but my current favourite is the Green Balm by Moa.  Great for cleansing, soothing, moisturising - plus the mini sample sizes make great lip balm.

Top blemish zapper?
Currently trying the Moa because of the tea tree and yarrow combo, but Sarah's suggestion of Manuka oil has me wanting to try something different.

Face wipes yay or nay?
Used to be a huge yay as they can be quick and easy.  But now, a firm nay.

Toner yay or nay?
Undecided!  I don't use a dedicated toner, but I do spray Rosewater on my face for a quick refresher.

High end skincare or high end makeup?
Hmm, difficult.  Can I just go for mid-range both?  To be honest, if it's not got the right ingredients in it, or has the wrong ones in, it doesn't matter if it's £1 or £50, I won't be buying it.

I guess in theory I'm more inclined to spend on skincare over makeup, but in reality will spend more on cosmetics!

What's the most unusual skincare product you've tried?
Nothing immediately springs to mind, I suppose using Bicarb of Soda as an exfoliant?  No, too normal?  In that case, I'm afraid I'm very boring!

You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item - what is it?
I can't think of a specific item - but I'd be looking for something with the ECOCERT or Cosmebio stamp to show it had reached certain standards for natural, organic and green cosmetics.

Tell us your top skincare tip
This is one that I really need to listen to - don't flip-flop too much with skincare, try to let your skin adjust and get used to one or two products at a time.
