The Skincare Tag.

I don't often do tags but when I saw the skincare tag floating about I though yes, finally a tag that has my name written all over it. I was then tagged by the lovely Katy and Lillian so had no excuse to avoid it really. There's no harm in doing a tag post every once in a blue moon.. right?? ;)

Describe your routine in 5 words...
Clean, (halfway) green, cruelty-free, exfoliate, brighten.

What's your skin type?
Combination/sensitive with a few cheery hormonal breakouts for good measure.

What is your favourite skincare product?
You may as well ask my mother who she prefers, us or the cats. it's a tough choice (she'd choose the cats). I'm going to say the Elemental Herbology Moisture Milk, but I immediately want to choose atleast 5 other things... I have issues.

Top blemish zapper...
Easy, the Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion.

Face wipes... yay or nay?
No, nay, never. (except when on holiday)

Toner... yay or nay?
A huge yay! If you don't believe me, read this post.

High end skincare or high end makeup?
I would rather choose natural, organic skincare, which just so happens to be quite an expensive preference.

What is the most universal skincare product you've tried?
Hydraluron or the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque.

You're in a pharmacy and can only pick up one item - what would it be?
Are we talking french pharmacy?! regardless, I've been meaning to try the Melvita Milky Cleansing Oil for ages now, I've never tried a cleansing oil!

Top skincare tips.
Double cleanse in the evening.
Exfoliate then hydrate.
Take supplements.
Always use a flannel.
If you can, go green.

I tag: You.


  1. Love this tag! Would be super helpful to get a list of the products you do use and love as well :)

    1. I'm slowly but surely going through all my skincare in series on the blog.. cleansers, toners etc :) x

  2. what kind of supplements are you talking about?

    1. I take omega oils, starflower oil, vitamins c, b, d & zinc :) x

  3. Loving your tips! I'm not normally a tag kinda girl but this is tempting... x


  4. I've never tried a cleansing oil either. Hadn't heard of the Melvita Milky brand either - so thanks for the heads up!

    1. I'm loving Melvita at the moment, I really want to try more from them! x

  5. Loved it, so I took you up on the challenge. :)

  6. I love this tag. I am a complete skincare junkie & love hearing what other people use. The Aesop skincare is my absolute favourite. In particular their Parsley Seed Serum. It is so soothing and hydrating

  7. I really need to sort out my skincare routine, I'm drowning in products but never seem to stick to anything!

  8. Natural & Organic products do seem more expensive but from experience they tend to be concentrated so I find they go further in the long run. I have also done this tag if its of interest :)

  9. Awww; I'm so glad you did the tag! Definitely a good read. I'm so glad that you finally tried the Aesop Parsley Seed mask--isn't it da' bomb!?! I really want to try the Melvita Cleansing Oil. I've never heard of it but it sounds l o v e l y.

  10. I love using a toner. It feels so refreshing even if I don't find it does a lot for my skin!

  11. I've been reading a lot of controveristy about muslin cloths and flannels lately. I'd be curious to know why one of the two is better than the other? :) x
