Describe your skin care routine in 5 words
Simple, quick, refreshing, protective, moisturising
What's your skin type?
Normal - occasionally I get the odd dry patch though.
What's your favourite skin care product?
Oh it's hard to pick one but I think I'm going to go with the No 7 Beautiful Skin hot cloth cleanser. It is the best product for taking my makeup off and giving me a fresh clean face!
Top blemish zapper
To be honest I don't really use 'zapping' products. I prefer to just stick to my skin care routine and use a concealer to cover up any blemishes. At the moment I'm using the Soap and Glory concealer. It isn't the best, but I'm determined to use it up!
Face wipes yay or nay?
I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I've never used a face wipe, nor am I horrified if people use face wipes. Let's face it, they're quick and easy to use, especially when you're super tired or have come home after a night out. Having said that I haven't bought any recently, purely because I have got myself into a good routine with my skin care. I cleanse, I exfoliate (every other day), I tone, moisturise and apply an SPF of some sort before putting on my makeup. I use masks every now and then. I like masks that aim to hydrate the skin.
Anyway back on to face wipes... For those that don't know, face wipes contain a lot of preservatives to keep them moist and usable. Unfortunately these preservatives are not so good for the skin. Some people find they irritate the skin or leave it feeling tight and dry. I personally find face wipes to be quite drying and have suffered allergic reactions in the past to some particular brands. I also think its easy to be a little rough when taking off makeup with face wipes, which is not so good, especially around the delicate eye area.
High-end skin care or high-end make-up?
I'd rather use high-end skin care. There are a lot of fantastic high-street makeup brands out there, so I rarely use high-end makeup. Having said that, I don't use high-end skin care really, the brands I'm using at the moment are No 7, The Sanctuary and the Body Shop.
What's the most unusual skin care product you've tried?
I can't remember what it was called but it was a mask that when you put it on your face it went really hot. I didn't like it at all!
You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick up one item - what is it?
I have absolutely no idea. I know a lot of beauty bloggers write about French pharmacy skin care products, but I really don't know a lot about them and therefore cannot answer this question!
Tell us your top skin care tip
I guess this isn't a tip, more like advice but it is to be consistent with your skin care routine. Skin care products take time to work, so it is unlikely you are going to notice a difference to your skin straight away. The only way you will see if the products really work is to use them for a few weeks. Consistency is key in my opinion!
