Essentials To My Summer Love

I was at Perth back in May and I can still recall the autumn chills I encountered. It was so cold in the middle of the night that I couldn't stop shivering while trying to stroll around the city. And that is exactly when I feel that summer may be the best season of the year. 




Everything about summer is happy (minus the bugs of course), the colours of blue sky and white clouds, green trees and grass, colourful flowers blooming everywhere. Not to mention the summer fun of parties and events, and some may say that summer is the best time of the year to fall in love. I wanna be in the summer lovin' too!




I wanna do everything I could with my summer love - we could do morning swim or night swim, eat chilled watermelon while looking at sunset, drink fresh coconut juice at this lil café beside the beach, listen to the cicadas sing in the forest, share an ice cream together, we could do picnic on a sunny Sunday morning and went for bicycle ride around the park during the evening. 




There are tons in the list I can list out what we can do but first - let's find myself a summer love! lololololololol. A girl can be anything but lazy. There are no ugly girls but only lazy ones. So these's are the essentials of boosting my summer charisma up in search of my summer lovin'.



From head to toe, morning to night






First and foremost, I'm not a sunblock version. I leave home without sunblock on and this has been happening ever since, and what makes me change my mind about sunblock and bought one is because of it's ingredients. I really really REALLY super hate sunblock that leave greasy texture on my skin as if my skin is unable to breath. Then one day, when I was reading ViVi magazine while doing my hair at salon, I saw their annual Cosme Award 2016 result and Bioré's sunblock has won itself in Top 3. So I'm thinking why not give it a try? It must be something that made it to Japanese favourite.



Bioré UV Aqua Rich SPF50+ PA++++
On current @Cosme Ranking Top 1




Lucky me I found the sunblock at Guardian same building of the salon I went and after the first application, I'm impressed. I'll never look at sunblock the same again. This Bioré Aqua Rich is so light-weighted and its watery-texture is my favourite. Barely feel a thing on my skin after application and it can be used as makeup base as well if you forgot to bring your primer. 




Watery texture is major love when it comes to sunblock











So I've secured discovered the daytime good skin essential items, and night time is just about equally important as day because skin recover and rejuvenate best during sleeping hours and thanks to my teacher gave me this during my birthday, which is much needed as I just finished my night cream not long ago:


Hada Labo Koi-Gokujyun Perfect Sleeping Gel




I've heard a lot of stories bout sleeping gel being ineffective, I've tried another brand from Korea which is true that I can't feel any difference after applying the sleeping gel hence I'm having this skeptical attitude towards this Hada Labo Koi-Gokujyun Perfect Sleeping Gel. The truth is: I was wrong. It is an all-in-one perfect gel which combines lotion, milk lotion, serum, cream and pack in one jar with rich hypoallergenic gel formula which contains super hyaluronic acid, ceramide, hydrolyzed collagen for firming, instant but long-lasting moisture. 





Pretty clear gel like


It is a deeply moisturizing sleeping gel hence I try to apply only a thin layer on my face as I'm quite afraid of the greasiness but it doesn't appear to be oily. Its gel-like texture forms a thin layer on my skin and creating the firming and moisturizing action during my sleeping hours and I wakeup with soft supple and glowy skin in the morning. Thank you teacher for giving me such a wonderful present. 







Since my imaginary summer love will be doing a lot of outdoor activities with me (lolololol) , taking care of my feet is something I should do weekly or else my soles will be full of dead skin cells, slowly leads to dryness and crack sole. That's some ugly scene and I would not want this to happen to my feet. 



Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Foot Pedi in Special Pink version





This handy pink electronic device is gonna keep my feet pretty and well-groomed





Look at the shiny Micralumina regular coarse roller





Sorry to show you my ugly feet lololol



With its gentle power generated, Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot File rolls away dead skin cells in just few minutes, giving my feet all the lovin' and after the exfoliation, I put on lotions to ensure my feet are hydrated and moisturized and they stay that way for some time!





Look at all the dead skin cell bits






Last but not least, how does one attracts when she doesn't have kissable lips? And I just discovered I don't need to splurge hundreds into glossy lip colours because I got LipIce Sheer Colour with me and it hyped up the summer vibes in me. 



I got Strawberry flavoured lips *shy*





10 hours moisture + full bouncy lips + brighten dull lips
In this tube!




Contains natural moisturizing ingredients like Beeswax, Argan Oil, Shea Butter, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Aloe Extract to keeo lips soft and smooth, it has also Commiphora Mukul Herb Extract in it to keep lips full and bouncy and fine lines are smoothen too. With just one layer of application, my lips turn into healthy, sheer pink glow in mere seconds.

Whenever I glide this lip balm on, its aromatic strawberry smell makes me wanna bite the balm and eat it because it smells so nice!!! Imagine the smell intrigues the urge of my summer love wanna bite my lips... Okay it's getting off topic and too much imagination! Hahahahahaha. But yeah, I really love how this lip balm make my lips look moisturized and glow in healthy pink shade, immediately perk-up look effect in real life.




So I'm ready, where are you summer love?
