I got really inspired by a bunch bloggers, answering this tag questionnaire, so i decided to answer it, too! Basically, it is a questionnaire, related to beauty, health and fitness (most likely for me to answer anyway, lol) and I give you my honest and most sincere opinion.
40 Beauty Questions Tag (divided into categories):

-What is your current facial wash? - Avene's Cleanance Gel; La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying foaming gel (pH 5.5)
-Do you exfoliate? - Absolutely, I do it on daily basis (I know one should exfoliate once or twice weekly, but I love the feeling I'm left with after exfoliation)
-What brand do you use? - Garnier's Pure 3 in 1 (wash, scrub & mask, but I use it to exfoliate only)
