Things That I Have Been Loving This Summer

Hello, An image diary of things that I have been trying and loving this summer...  


Andalou Naturals Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk is all natural and works like a dream for dry skin.  Not to mention, it smells delicious!

SK-II is not new to me, but I have not used anything from the line in a few years.  This SK-II Pitera Essence Set (similar set sold in link) was gifted to me from my relative.  It was purchased in Asia.

I bought the SK-II Cellumination Mask-in Lotion to go with the set.  It offers mask like benefits and keeps my skin moist throughout the day.  This is the perfect toner/treatment when you do not have time to do facial masks.  Love!

Thanks to Rowena at rolala loves for telling me about La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Melt-In Sunscreen Milk.  This is the best drugstore sunscreen!

Heliotrope is a San Francisco natural skincare company.  This purifying mist is the first purchase from the brand for me, I carried it in my purse wherever I went this summer.  It has a refreshing scent.  It can be used on the face and in the home.


I have been reaching for pink blushes a lot this summer.  Bobbi Brown Blush in 9 Pale Pink is one of my all time favorites.

I have been a big fan of the Diorsnow sunscreen for years.  I picked up Diorsnow UV Shield BB Creme when it came out earlier this year.  It does not disappoint.  It has excellent coverage, color, and skin protection.  For me, it looks best without a setting powder.   This is my current HG BB cream.


If you are in the Bay Area, you need to try Simply Mochi.  They make the best mochi outside of Japan.  Interesting flavors and always made perfectly!   Mochi goodness!

What are you loving this summer?  Thanks for stopping by and until next post......


  1. omg SKII!!! am looking forward to the day when i can splurge on a set lol

    the mochi looks so good!! will def chck out that place. :D

    1. Hi, SPT, SK-II products are more affordable on Asian beauty websites like Take care!

  2. great review! I have heard sooo much about SK-II, all good things!

    love from San Francisco,

  3. I always see SK-II ads but I've never tried their skin care, mostly because I'm not sure if I'm in their target group and I'm guessing their products are quite pricey. The Bobbi Brown blush looks really pretty :)

  4. The mochi looks delish! I've been curious about the mask-in lotion. Do you use it in place of the facial treatment lotion or after it?

    1. I use the Mask-In Lotion instead of the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion. I find it to be more hydrating.

  5. Hello! I found you via another blog and I really like your site - I was delighted to see my favourite BB cream made it into your summer roundup!
