The Delectable Wen, from Wen walks in shoes Tagged me to make a skincare post. Wen’s a woman after my own heart, artsy, foodie and with great taste in fashion/beauty.
Let’s do this:
Describe your skincare routine in 5 words:
Cleanse, moisturize, Serum, eye cream and food (yes food)
What’s your skin type?
Combination. Oily and sometimes dry. Ladies – Oily skin isn’t all bad, It helps to keep you wrinkle free for longer
Top Blemish Zapper
I don’t really get spots these days, I put it down to drinking copious amounts WATER and green tea! *glug glug glug*
Face Wipes, yay or nay?
A big hell..umm…yay! Face wipes are important to me because i can’t bare leaving any makeup on my eyes at night. I splash my eyes with warm water, it all gently slides off with the wipe. I use Simple baby wipes 80 pack. So much cheaper with no perfumes, colours and are alcohol free.
Toner, yay or nay?
I enjoy the soothing feel a toner leaves but I tend to go through phases, when I do this is the one I use. Click
High-end skincare or high-end makeup?
You only get one skin! I think I’d go with makeup though, you can’t beat a good quality lippy.
What’s the most unusual skincare product you’ve tried?
It’s not a bought product but it’s something I like to make, let’s call it umm…’Clare’s face feast’. I make a gentle exfoliater using Manuka honey, Brown sugar, lemon and green tea – Yummy. Bloody love it!
Tell us your top skincare tip
What you put in shows on the outside. If I go on a murderous Chips, pizza, Ben and jerry’s spree, it shows on my face days later. Get lots of fruit down ya! Drink water, eat well.
1. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
This Serum really does live up to it’s name. Light, goes a loooooong way, non greasy and really makes your skin look and feel healthier. I use this every night before my beauty sleep.
2. Origins Checks and Balances
I’ve used this for around three years continuously, Left 3 tubes at friends houses and re-purchased as soon as I hit boots. This is uber gentle, fantastic for sensitive skin, frothy, minimal, doesn’t increase oiliness or dryness. I’d marry it if I’m honest.
3. Origins Mega Bright Serum
I’ve used this serum under my makeup for over a year, I’ve never had any problem with spots, increased oiliness or makeup sliding. My skin absorbs it quickly and it carries a subtle natural smell.
4. Estee Lauder Advanced eye repair
Silky smooth, soothing and goes a long way. As a long nailed gal, The little applicator is very much appreciated.
Overall the best thing you can do to maintain healthy skin and a pretty glow is:
FRUIT AND VEG!
I shouted them so you’d remember them.
