daily stuff

Boots Botanicals Complexion Refining Toning Lotion, Skin79 Super BB in Pink, LUSH Tea Tree Water Toner 

These are the products I've been using for the past month or so; I'm going to knock on wood later but I've finally found some products that work with my difficult skin ^^

Boots Botanicals Complexion Refining Toning Lotion
Most toners are too harsh for me, because they contain alcohol and other chemicals; since this was a toning lotion, it was less drying and did help in absorbing oil. It did an okay job at complexion refining, and pore minimizing! I dab it on with cotton pads in the morning before BB cream and at night under a mask (Queen Helen's Mint Julep Mask, as intro'd by Wrinkled Noses)

Skin79 Super BB in Pink
I've been using this BB cream since December and it hasn't contributed much to breakouts; but compared to my previous makeup free skin..my skin is a lot more sensitive now. But on the brightside, it provides pretty good coverage and can be used as concealer. So far, between this and the Skin79 Super BB in Orange, the Pink clogs my pores less.

LUSH Tea Tree Water
I posted this before but wanted to follow up. I don't use this over my face anymore, because it caused red patches in my skin as a reaction; but i do use a cotton swab. After picking at pimples (I know, gross) I dip the cotton swab into the Tea Tree and apply to the wound. Most of the time it keeps it from getting infections and swelling.

(not pictured) Skin Food Egg Pore White Foam
I love this face wash! I also heard about it from Oiseau88 who has a similar skin type. It lathers up really well and makes your skin feel tight after using. I've been using the same bottle for about 2 months, day and night and it hasn't run out. I can't say much about its whitening properties though.

July Beauty Buys + Gifts

I was vacationing in malaysia this last month (July) and I was excited to learn they actually had skinfood and etude house shops there! The prices weren't too much nicer than ebay, but skinfood was having a sale one day (something you can't get on ebay, haha) so I picked something up :-)

After watching oiseau88's beauty posts I wanted to pick this AC Clinic Clay Pack up from Etude House; coincidentally this was one of the things that was on sale! I got it for around $7.50 usd. It's supposed to control sebum and oil, while drying out pimples. I'm only using this on problem spots and not as a full mask.

My P.I.C also bought some stuff for me while I was away (he knows me so well, and my skin obsession, hehe) How nice was that?? It was a super pleasant surprise.
Likas Papaya Whitening Soap
Simple Makeup Removers
Oil Free Acne Wash (in Pink Grapefruit) by Neutrogena

 My face is picky but hopefully this stuff works!

I also picked up a small angled brush because the one that came with my ELF liner broke..
Lastly I received a small haul of underclothing and socks and essentials like that..
People say highwaisted undies are granny like, and I'm not objecting but y'gotta hold in that muffin top somehow, haha.

high heels suicide

ughhh cute graphic tees "-----" the one i love the most is the daisy long sleeve; i've always preferred longsleeves to tees for some reason, maybe for the coverage and my ugly arms. SO CUTE. All tees are from highheelsuicide.com

fruits fruits

fruits fruits

I really like fruit prints right now; the only one I own is my strawberry bustier which mom doesn't let me wear much (cause of dem lady lumps). Well these fruits look totes approps and hopefully I'll find some nice fruit prints here in Malaysia! Though that'd be hard because the style here is pretty much stuck on the chiffon and collar type; but some hardcore stores like DNA warehouse sell more special duds. Time to go searching!

I might start wearing socks again

These strathcona socks are so cute *_______* expecially the pineapples..I'm a sucker for pineapples.
I really do wear socks though, really

dolphin shorts

dolphin shorts
There's something charming about dolphin shorts; it might be how sporty they look, ionno; all I remember is hating them when I walked into a Papaya store in the 6th grade. They look nice paired with tee's or printed button downs, how things change! haha
