My 2015 Summer Skincare

 Hey dears!

The summer has been a pain for me. Yes, I don't like summer. I don't like swimming in a pool, not even at a beach (I'll just probably take photographs and build a sand castle then go back in my room). I just don't like outdoor activities, but what I hate most is the heat! I'm always sweating and for some reason, my skin reacts badly when it's summer... I get breakouts! Ugh. 

But for this year, I was prepared! My skin was much better compared to previous years, which is great considering the temperature for this summer is higher. Anyway, I'll share with you the products I'm currently using. :)

For cleaning, I use these cleansers on my face.

I use this for cleansing in the morning:
Burt's Bees Cleanser (click the product name for my review)

And before sleep, I use this. It really takes care of the dirt that has accumulated throughout the day:

For the body, I'm currently using these Kala Milk soaps that was given to me almost two weeks ago. I like how it keeps my skin moisturized while it cleans. I like milk soaps and I hope you guys can wait for my review on these soaps. 

I also use liquid soaps with my loofa. I use the moringa scent from The Body Shop.

For moisture on the face, I use these Clarins products:

Vital Light Day and Vital Light Night and then to treat my dark spots from acne, I use the Vital Light Serum. It takes a while to see a difference on my dark spots but I think it works.

I also use the Clarins Toning Lotion as my toner. I was able to buy all these Clarins products while I was in the US for a vacation and they were on sale! Yay!

For my eyes, I use The Body Shop's Drops of Youth (Click the product name for my review).

And since I have acne-prone skin, my sister sent me this:

Perter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads
I swear, these pads are the bomb! They are soooo effective! Hopefully I can post a more detailed review soon. :D

For exfoliation, I turn to these samples that my sister gave me. I only have one sachet left though. ExfoliKate really works great on my skin. (Click the product name for my review)

I also pamper my skin with masks! I am currently using two kinds of masks:

Borghese Fango Active Mud Face and Body

Dewins Q10 Coenzyme Mask Pack

I will review these masks soon. I already have the photos ready! Haha! The mud mask is for further cleaning and purifying of pores, while the Q10 one is more for deep moisturization and firming.

Of course, I have products that protect me from the sun!

Belo SunExpert for my body and I use these Bioré products on my face! :D

Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence (click the product for my review)

I have uneven skin on my face, arms, body, and legs. My legs are too pale so they look awkward when I wear skirts and dresses. I want to tan them a little and I'm happy I was able to see these products at half price:
I use the deep tan oil every morning when I wear clothes that exposes my legs. I then use the suncare milk on top to prevent damage and after the day, I use the after sun. Haven't seen the need for the cooling gel yet. :P

For my body, I moisturize it with The Body Shop's Body Sorbet. It's not too moisturizing but it comforts me because it cools the skin and it smells soooo good.
I also use the Robinsons Giant Sale Shopping Foot Lotion.

Finally, I use my The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream to pamper my hands. I always draw and paint and since my hands are constantly exposed to chemicals, I use hand creams to keep them soft. Moringa is one of my favorite scent from TBS so it also comforts me when I smell the glorious floral scent!

And those are my skincare products for the summer season this year. I already reviewed some of them so you can just click and read the reviews for more details. For the other items I haven't reviewed, I'm trying to write my thoughts about them and I hope I can post them soon. :)

Have you tried any of the items listed? What are your summer essential products?
