The Skincare Tag

Hi Guys!
I hope you all have been having a good week! In exactly a week, I am going to California for Vidcon and I am so excited. I can't wait to share pictures, outfits and make up looks with you from there! Today, I was lucky enough to be tagged in the Skincare Tag by the lovely Sophie from That's What Sophie Said. Be sure to check out her blog she has amazing posts and beautiful pictures. Here are the questions!

1. Describe your skincare routine in five words.
  Perfect for a lazy girl 

2.What's your skin type?
My skin is pretty normal expect in the summer the area around my nose and chin get oily over night so I have to make sure to really wash my face at night and in the morning or else I end up with acne in those area.

3.What's your favorite skincare product?
Over the last few months, I have really been enjoying the LUSH Ocean Salt Scrub. It is meant for face and body but I only use it on my face. My skin feels so soft after and it does an amazing job cleaning out all of my pores. I did a full review on it HERE

4. Top blemish zapper?
I love Benefit's Boo Boo Zap. It is great for those little spots that sneak up on you. It immediately reduces the redness and size of a pimple. Also it doesn't leave any weird smell or residue so it is great for on the go! I keep it in my purse so it is always by me if I need it. 

5. Face wipes...yay or nay? 
I know a lot of people who don't use make up wipes because they aren't really good for your skin and aren't as affective as cleansing waters however, I am extremely lazy and when I come home from being out spending 20 minutes removing my make up is not something I like to do so using a make up wipe is my savor. I really like the Simple make up wipes and Pacifica coconut water wipes. Both of these are really gentle on the skin and remove all my make up. The Pacifica ones also smell really good and are all natural. 

6.Toner...yay or nay?
Toner is a heck yay for me! I adore my LUSH  Eau Roma Water. I apply it after I wash my face or use a make up wipe. I spray it on and wipe it with a cotton ball or pad after. It makes sure that all of my make up is completely off and it leaves my skin feeling so refreshed and hydrated. Also it has rose and lavender in it that are a really comforting smell. 

7. High end skincare or High end make up?
I'm going to have to say high end make up just because I own so much more of it. I think because I have pretty normal skin ( knock on wood), I am able to get away with drugstore skincare and LUSH. Also I go through skincare so fast that spending large amount of money seems like a waste. 

8. You're in a French pharmacy and can only buy one item, what would it be?
It would 150% percent be Bioderma. The only way to get Bioderma in the states is online which is so frustrating because maybe if I used Bioderma, I would stop using my make up wipes as much. So many  people talk about how amazing it is, I wish I could try it out.

9. Top skincare tip?
I have friends who always buy different face washes when they run out of the one they are currently using. My top advice is to find a good face wash and stick with it. When it comes to face wash, it is all about consistency. Changing which one you use every three weeks isn't going to help your skin get better. It is so important to keep using the same products because they work better the longer you use them. I know its frustrating if you don't see results right away but I would give it at least two bottle before switching it. I love the Neutrogena GrapeFruit Wash. It smells amazing and really helped my skin. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this! For this, I tag:
