Skincare Tag

Claire from Ms This N That Blog tagged me in the beauty blogger’s skincare tag. I thought it would be fun answering the questions and getting to know a bit more about other bloggers’ skin care preferences/routines.

Describe your skincare routine in five words…
simple, inconsistent (I don’t always use it lol), gentle, fresh, variety

What’s your skin type?
Combination- some parts are dry and some oily.

What’s your favourite skin care product?
Don’t know if you’d call it ‘skincare’ but Lush Snow Fairy body wash! love it soo much, but I am disappointed it’s only available at Christmas time (must stock up this year!)

Top Blemish Zapper?
Don’t know. I tend to try all different ones, but none of them have really stood out.

Face wipes, yay or nay?
 Definitely yay! I always like to try different brands…so far my favourites are Australis 3 in 1 wipes and ModelsPrefer Matte Me 3 in 1 pore minimising wipes

Toner, yay or nay?
Used to use them, but I quickly learned that they didn’t really do anything for my skin or they sometimes dried it out.

High End Skincare or High End Makeup?
I don’t really buy much of either, but if I had to choose I’d say Makeup. High-end foundation has a better colour match for my skin! Almost every brand’s ‘ivory’ shade is still too dark for me or too yellow.

What’s the most unusual skincare product you’ve tried?
Haven’t really used anything unusual…

You’re in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item – what is it?
Caudalie Beauty elixir, it sounds like it would be amazing…unfortunately Caudalie is expensive and I don’t think it’s available in Australia any more.

Tell us your top skincare tip
Always use sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage! You can’t reverse the effects of sun damage, but it’s never too late to prevent further damage!

Thanks Claire for tagging me!

Mascara Monday: Australis Lash Length Extensions Mascara

Australis Lash Length Extensions Mascara– Lash Length Extensions mascara is the newest addition to the Australis ‘Mascara All Sorts’ range, it has a thin brush to reach and separate every lash, with ‘fibers’ that attach themselves to your lashes, giving the appearance of longer lashes.

Australis Lash lengths mascara

I thought I would add a few eggs to the pic for Easter Monday 🙂

Shade: Black

Cost: RRP $11.95

Tagline: “so lightweight you’ll feel like you’re not wearing any mascara at all!”

Pros: Affordable price, Thin brush for easy application and to separate lashes, long natural looking lashes, lightweight formula/fibers, long wearing.

Cons: Fibers may irritate sensitive eyes, only available in two shades…there is not much I can fault with this mascara!

What I thought: This has been my go-to mascara on my ‘no makeup’ days for the past couple of weeks. It truly is very light weight and natural looking! I was surprised at how long wearing it is too. I was so tired last night, that I didn’t take my mascara off when I went to bed (naughty, I know). When I woke up this morning, my mascara hadn’t budged. No panda eyes, yay! I don’t recommend sleeping with it on though, especially because of the fibers.

Helpful tip: When removing this mascara, do so gently to avoid getting any of the fibers in your eyes. If you do happen to get a fiber in your eye (as I did last week) don’t rub you eyes, flush it out with warm water. Then continue removing any remaining mascara.

My rating: 5/5
