Haul: May, Summertime!

This is quite delayed... haha! Oh well, at least here it is! I usually don't do hauls for the month because I usually don't get a lot of stuff; it's usually over time for me. This month, I got quite a bit of stuff come to think of it! Summer is here, and people are concerned with their skin and other stuff during the summer, so I'd like to share to you what I got for the summer time! ^_^ Most of these thing were recommended on websites, blogs, but some were just out of curiosity!  Here we go! 

"Paris Evoluderm" Atomiseur Eau Pure (Pure Water Spray):
- Much like the "Evian Mineral Water Spray", it's the same concept; water in a spray can. Haha! I got two of these gigantic bottles, and I will surely appreciate it during the summer when I'm outside! It feels really great, and the can keeps it cool, ahh... 
EVOLUDERM pure water is a source of well-being for you and your family throughout the day. With its fine mist, EVOLUDERM, pure water moisturizes, refreshes and tones your skin. You can use it both on the face and body. EVOLUDERM pure water suits all skin types including the most delicate ones, and is especially recommended for baby care.
400 ml.
"Yes to Blueberries" Brightening Facial Towelettes:
- Since this summer I'm going to be outside a lot and exercising, I need something that I can take on the go with me that doesn't dry out my skin. Not make-up removing either because that's a little more harsh because it's used to remove makeup. These towels are thick, moist, and it's quite gentle; it only stings a little bit right after, but just a little bit!
Age Refresh
Brightening Facial Towelettes
With Apple + Lemon Peel to cleanse and moisturize all-in-one
Natural 99% Product
30 Pre-Moistened Towelettes

"Banana Boat" Sun Wear Daily Sunscreen Lotion:
- It's made with Organic Botanicals!  It smells nothing like sunscreen, it has a very unique smell... like bamboo? I believe this has UVA and UVA protection and it has an SPF 50, and I quite in love this this currently because it does not feel heavy at all! I think it's discontinued though cause I don't see it in-stores anymore...
Ultra Sheer, Clean Feel, Age-Defying Complex
Very Water Resistant, Dermatologist Tested, Hypoallergenic 
6 fl. oz. / 117 ml.
"Aveeno" Hydrosport Sunblock Spray:
- Being outside a lot, I needed something that was convenient yet protecting. I decided to try out this spray; I've never really like spray stuff, and this isn't an exception. It feels quite sticky, but it's pretty good at protection because I can feel how my skin doesn't feel the 'burn'. Not bad I guess...
AVEENO HYDROSPORT Sunblock Spray is the first sunblock to harness the unique water-repelling ability of the Natural Lotus Complex, as special blend with naturally-derived ingredients. This exclusive formula provides long-lasting UVA/UVB protection and withstands wear off from water and sweat. This revolutionary sunblock forms a thin, breathable shield which clings to skin, even when it's wet. When it's time to reapply, it's no sweat; HYDROSPORT Sunblock Spray is specially designed to be applied even to wet or sweaty skin.
5 oz. / 141.5 g.

"Veet" Fast Acting Gel Cream (Hair Remover): 
- Veet > Nair; This is like my 2nd bottle of Veet, and I really like it! Painless hair-remover! 
Get touchably smooth skin for up to twice as long as shaving with VEET Hair Removal Cream. Unlike shaving that can sometimes dry the delicate surface or your skin, the NEW formula from VEET contains ingredients that can help restore skin's hydration levels. This NEW formula is designed to work close to the root of hair. Therefore your hair can take noticeably longer to grow back and your skin stays smoother for longer!
13.5 fl. oz. / 400 ml.
"Aveeno" Positively Nourishing 24-hour Ultra-Hydrating Whipped Souffle: 
- Moisturizing and light... Kinda like the body butters, but it's lighter yet still as moisturizing! Smells amazing as well! 
Whipped Souffle
Velvety soft and smooth 
Non-greasy, ultra-sheer formula infused with natural shea butter and cocoa butter
And, this formula with antioxidants nourishes your skin to help keep it healthier-looking tomorrow.
6 oz. / 170 g.
 "The Body Shop" DeoDry Dry-Effect Deodorant:
- You know, it's deo; you always need it anyways! The smell reminds me of floral lemongrass! 
Fresh & Floral Stick 
No Aluminum Salts
24 HR. Protection
With volcanic mineral and essential oils.
55 g. / 1.9 oz.
"Degree" motionSense: 
 - Great for sports because it stays on and helps with every move you make!

Wishlist: Circle lens, help me choose!

Yay~ I'm getting circle lens... but I don't know which ones! I started off looking at like pink, grey, black and brown ones; I decided that I want natural, yet pretty looking ones that are naturally special. (Just to perk up my look sometimes ^_^) Looking through a whole bunch of circle lens, I've narrowed it down to 3! Yet, these 3 are so hard to choose from, and I just don't know which one. Now I need your help to help me choose or recommend me some that you have tried!! Thank you <3 
Thank you Lovelies!

Review: Missha "M Watery B.B. Cream SPF 27 / PA++"

Cool angle shot of the box ;)
Hello June! Hopefully during the summer, I can post more reviews up! As first seen in my Chinatown Haul, I am now reviewing it! I don't use this daily, but now since it's summer, I've definitely been using this more often. And I LOVE it; probably one of my HG item now! I love how it's so light weight, sheer, and gives a nice little glow! Unlike most BB Creams, this is very, very liquid-y; that's the main reason why I love it so much! 
"Containing a generous amount of moisture, M Watery B.B Cream helps create glowing skin with its natural coverage. Its moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients protect your skin and make it comfortable with moisturized and cool afterfeel."
The product squeezed out a little bit
Rating: 9.5 out of 10
Skin Type: Any
Me: I have a really bad habit of skipping sunscreen, but putting on BB cream with sunscreen is just too heavy for me to put on everyday. Thank goodness for this! It's even lighter than a moisturizer yet its still very moisturizing! Thanks to this, I don't forget my sunscreen and I get skin benefits as well! HG from now on, LOVE! My skin feels so soft, looks smooth, has a very nice and healthy glow,  and it helps to cover my redness too!
Repurchase: Yes, currently one of my HG items! However, I think it's discontinued now, so it might be a little hard to get your hands on it, but thank goodness my Chinatown has some still!
How to: On a clean face, apply a small dime amount to all over your face and neck. With this, you don't need a whole lot of moisturizer before because this is very moisturizing, so just apply a thin layer before! It's a little hard to dispense because sometimes you'll get only the watery part. To prevent this: shake it up, and have it laying down and just tilt it up a little bit so you can slowly squeeze it out. This will prevent the water from spilling out and you'll get a good mix of the product inside!
Price: $15-20; very affordable for my favorite BB cream!
Quality: To me, I wouldn't consider it a BB cream because of how sheer the coverage is. I think it doesn't have color at all; however, it does help with redness and oil-control. I love it!
Smell: It has a light baby lotion smell with a hint of floral. I like it!
Texture: Light weight, smooth, watery, and moisturizing. The lightest BB cream I've ever used and it just feels like a protective veil on your skin cause it's like your skin! Great for the summer!
Color: It looks really dark when out of the tube, but when you blend it out, its not dark at all. The color is very sheer (light coverage), so it would blend with any skintone that ranges in the normal BB cream range. So the color in the picture above is not what it turns to be because of how sheer it is. Even though it comes in only one shade, I would say that it could range anywhere from a no. 21 in BB creams to no. 23 and maybe even a touch darker. (Very versatile!)
Packaging: It comes in this sleek white tube with a shiny cap that twists off, and the product is squeezed out of a small tip. The opening at the tip is a little bit too big because of how watery the product is and sometimes it comes out just the watery moisturizer -.-, so shake it up! I find that the best way to dispense this is to shake it up, and angle it like it's laying down and slowly squeeze it out; NEVER do it vertically up and down cause the water will spill out!
Amount: 50 ml.
