Knowing what type of skin you have is helpful in getting the right skincare products! There are many factors that can play in the role of determining your skin type. Above, you will see a video that will share with you how the staff at Wish Company has been able to find out what skin type they have.

Below you will find a summary of how you can find your skin type; read on to get the details of the two simple steps that will determine your skin type!  

Skincare types:

  • Dry, normal, oily (acne-prone), combination, sensitive
Step 1:
  • As shown in the video, there is a checklist that is provided to the staff (watch the video for further information), and check the following boxes next to the statements you relate to.
  • Dry Skin: 1-4 checks
  • Normal Skin: 5-8 checks
  • Oily Skin: 9-12 checks

If you ended up with either dry or oily skin, you may also be sensitive or combination. The second step will help clarify whether you are one of the two.

Step 2:

Thoroughly cleanse your skin and when your skin is clean and dry, use an oil blotting paper on your face. Place several on your face to find out if you are:
