Pink shorts for the summer!

I recently pick out the Pink shorts for the summer along with some accessories from Zaful. As a collaboration, they let me pick out the products by myself from the website, and here my review. 

The website was easy to navigate and the checkout process was convenient. The shipping was fast, it took less than 5 days to reach Bangkok. The package arrived in perfect condition, all the accessories are in another bubble wrap.

PINK SHORT

(Pink short, linen stripe shirt, and accessories from Zaful)

The pink short is in stretchy velvet fabric, the sewing was way better than I expected compared to the price. The reason I pick out this pink short is because I don't own any shorts in pink, coral, or anything other than black and white. The weather is hot all year around and having as many short to pick out from is essential. In It would be perfect for Sunday spending time at cafe or my favourite bookstore. 

Sunglasses, earring, and necklace are in great quality. The design on the site are really cute and there are so many to choose from. As you know, sometime pictures in some sites are deceiving, I am glad this one turns out exactly like the picture. Overall, I am very satisfy with my pick, I guess these are what I will be wearing for summer!

Skincare for 2017


Skincare

My skin was terrible after I came back from my trip. Travelling to places that are cold, dry, and hot weather back and forth really made my skin breakout badly. Combined with lack of sleep, strolling in the sun all day, and poor diet- "Hey it me" said acnes, dark spots, and your truly flaky skin.

Story time, I have combination skin (dry in my cheek area, oily t-zone), and acne/break out from time to time. I don't like cold weather, my air condition at home is set to 25°C/77°F ,so your typical winter isn't made for me. I am a tropical climate kinda girl. When I was little, I was in Calgary during March ~ April. It was a nightmare, I couldn't smile I felt like my skin was tearing apart. What is moisturiser, but why do I have dozen of lip smackers?  Confession time, I've only start applying moisturiser in my routine this year. 

I thought I living in hot and humid climate = moisturiser is useless. 

What is worst? I am too lazy to apply sunscreen. Why? It's sticky, white cast is evil, don't want to be pale (the whitening effect in asian skincare), and UV is a myth. 

As a gift of gratitude from your friends, Ultraviolet and free radicals, I might have received some minor breakout, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, sunburn (during the tomb-sweeping festival), you name it.  Still, nothing severe, I am real lucky my skin wasn't that google-picture-haunting you know what I mean. It might be because whenever I have acne I used salicylic acid or because I double cleanse. Who know? But- acne/pimple is still a regular visitor.

Around 4 months ago, I stumbled upon a youtube video, where Liah was talking about how not wearing sunscreen could be linked to your acne.  WHAT! Details and facts were given, I got to test the theory.  After two months, there are less acnes. I can't guarantee you, but with proper skincare and cleansing, I think you should see some improvement in your skin. Not only for your acne problem, but your 100$ anti-aging cream couldn't save your skin.

If you apply sunscreen religiously ,but didn't cleanse your face well or have a proper skincare routine afterward, it could worsen your skin. Clogged pores aren't cool.

Cleanse, moisturize, and applying sunscreen are my main focus.

Other skincare I use daily are niacinamide + zinc in the morning, and a little of salicylic acid at night if I happen to see any possible formation of acne. Once a week, I use sheet mask or rinse-off mask such as clay mask.


Niacinamide + zinc serum
The ingredient/vitamin, Niacinamide, claimed to boost the immunity of your skin, oil controls, helps with redness, and hyperpigmentation. I must say I discover it by chance. I was just wondering what's the hype with Glossier and been wanting to try their product- little did I know I was entering the skincare craze phase. I later discover the ingredient in Super Pure serum was Niacinamide & Zinc and did a little more research to it. I felt like my skin was healthier? When I emptied Super Pure, I was in Moscow and I couldn't get a new bottle. When I got back my skin was bad, lack of sleep and dry weather was brutal. I found The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% , that has the same ingredient and was quite happy with it's moisturizer ,so I decided to test it out. The texture was a bit thicker, like it doesn't sink right in your skin like Glossier ,but after couple days I felt like it does repair my skin little by little. After two month my skin condition was back to normal. I just sent my best friend photos of my before and after.

Moisturizer
L:A BRUKET facial cream no. 101
Lifesaver during winter-cold-dry weather. I use it whenever I travel to cold places, but it's a bit too greasy for summer. I emptied it, more like my brother and I emptied it. He lived in brutal winter area aka. Northern China, he transfered half of the cream in pot to his muji travel pot. I can't repurchase it because I bought it in Hongkong back in December , and I don't know where I could find it here.

The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing factors + HA
This was after L:A BRUKET, because I emptied that and was looking for a lighter moisturizer. I want to try a product from The Ordinary and a NMF moisturizer sounds promising. With Hyalulonic Acid, keeping your skin moist and plump. I almost empty the tube and so far it's good for normal-night time last step for your skincare. It's not greasy, light-weight, and doesn't smell bad. However, I don't see any changes in my skin apart from the feeling of hydrated skin, but I guess that's enough for a moisturiser/hydrator. (I have read somewhere that HA work best in humid place, so I guess it fit my climate)

Masks
Currently using : 
It claimed "Consider this your magic potion and sleeping beauty, because clear, hydrated, glowing skin will all be delivered, in a single dose of slumber. Using nutrient-dense Okinawa deepsea water from Japan, Soy Bean extracts and Hyaluronic Acid, this unique sleep-in or rinse off transparent gel mask serves next level lustre, in a luxurious everyday treat for your skin."
My result? It's was quite good (apart from the price), if I feel like I need to hydrate my skin after I use AHA/BHA/exfoliators, I will use it. It keep my skin moist and soft.  

First time I test out this product, it feels like I am putting ice on my face. I almost rinse it off.  I read other reviews and people has the same reaction- I guess you could describe it minty ice tingling.  It has sulfur, which claim to reduces breakouts and detoxifies, and Lavender to heals and calms your skin. The only thing I dislike is the Sulfur scent is so strong, even after you wash your face completely! Apart from that, it's relaxing to wind down after a hot humid day. 

-Both are from Sephora masks collection box.- I think masks are the "extra", for days you want a little more treat for your skin, but I don't think any of them are my hg.

That's all for the product I am currently using, and yes, I still don't use toner.. Give me some more time to research on that , but so far I am happy enough with my current routine.

White Crop Top

White crop top is my all time favourite staple piece to have in my closet. I wore white crop top at least once a week, I layered it up in winter, wore it alone in summer. It sounds like it will be easy to find, but end up hard to finding the perfect one?

After travelling for 16 days from St. Petersburg to Hanoi last June, I figure out that packing for 10°C and 33°C in one luggage is a struggle. I need something I can swap around making combination out and light, and easy to iron, after I got back I realised my love of white top was such a lifesaver. White crop top is just so classic and easy to match with anything. 

These are my some of my favourite picks from Zaful


Drop Shoulder Crop Sweatshirt / Cut Out Choker Cropped Top


Pair it with jean for a stroll around the city, a classic skirt for dinner, throw on a jacket in windy day, and even with sweat pant for the long haul flight. So convenience! 

Ruffled Cropped Ribbed Top / Off Shoulder Tied Sleeve Blouse


Cropped Button Up Lantern Sleeve Blouse

With a little dash of minimal accessories, you are ready to go!
There are so many option of white crop tops to choose from.
