Review: Sunplay SkinAqua BBcream + summer must-haves!

We all know i love bbcreams [well if u didnt know..uh now u know? XD]
And everytime i buy a new bbcream or post a photo of one..you guys always ask me to do a review
But to very honest..i dont know what to write about…so if u have a question or a particular need u need a bbcream to do..tell/ask me!! XD

In my last post..i posted a pic of the new one i found which is made by Mentholathum
sun05
Sunplay SkinAqua Silky BBcream by Mentholatum
Price: HKD$128 [approx USD$16]

There are two types available
Untitled
Moisture BBcream or Silky BBcream
One is geared towards providing more moisture [i suppose this is better for those with dry skin or those who live in a cold/dry climate?]
The other is for oily control and a smooth appearance.

Since i have an oilslick of a Tzone..i am always on the hunt for a bbcream that does well in the humid/hot summer weather. My current HG bbcream is Oriks Vitamin C but it does not contain spf and it does not do well in extremely humid weather. I get super shiny and a lot of blotting is needed. Heck i think it starts to melt off in extremely hot/humid weather sometimes.

Anyway..since this promises to provide excellent oil control..i purchased it
sun10
Its made by Mentholathum owned by Rohto.

To be honest..i am not sure where this is made..as the words on the back and on the box are all in mandarin.
sun06
My thoughts [after 4 days of usage]
– has no discernable smell [YAY!]
– the bbcream isnt thick but applies evenly and provides good coverage
– is very sweatproof like sunblock
– has AMAZING oil control. <– yes it really does!!!
– does not contain much product for its price XD

Would i buy it again?
YES! the oil control is as good as it claims. Despite the fact i was out the whole day in 31degrees C with 95% humidity, i only had to blot once and it wasnt very shiny either!! And it doesnt melt off or rub off easy. Very pleased with this. I am actually going to buy another bottle as backup!

The bbcream is only 25spf so if you are going to be in the sun..do remember to wear a proper sunblock underneath. This is my HG
sun04
Its made by Clover and i bought it in Japan.
Price: 1600yen [approx USD$16]

Since we talking about sun products..i gotta talk about my summer must-haves!

My HG Day Essence from KOSE finally finished so i have switched to SKII
sun03
Both have spf25. Used the new one for around a month now. So far so good. But i think the one from KOSE is better [for whitening? i am not sure..i somehow prefer it more as its texture is lighter too]

I also picked this up from NARS last week
sun01
LOVE IT! [The color is LARA but its REALLY sheer anyway so its more like a lip balm]

Here’s something else that one MUST HAVE in summer [actually all the time]
sun02
DEODERANT! its amazing how something so basic is often forgone by loads of people. UGH! Main reason why i do not like public transport..esp during summer/hot months.

And dont forget about your hair! Esp if you are the sort to pespire a lot or perhaps do not wash your hair in the morning before you leave home….
sun17
Hair Cologne by SexyGirl

And my number one must have for summer/hot climates….
sun07
Face & Body ice cooling gel by Innisfree.
Sadly as i bought this in korea last october..i have since forgotten the price.
This is a fantastic spray! Oddly it comes out more like a gust of cold air than mist..i cant really feel any mist at all XD It cools you down almost immediately and since its not a mist..your makeup doesnt get affected. HIGHLY reccomend this.

Tell me..what are your must-haves for warm weather/hot climate??

Ok i think i rambled on too much as usual. My monday posts are far too long arent they?
Hope everyone is doing well!!
XOXO Yumeko

      some have a lot of coverage..say lieole
      but if u have acne/acne scars..try Oriks Vit C bbcream
      whilst its coverage isnt very thick [i say medium] it fades acne scars extremely quickly and treats your skin as well.

      do u think its one for special occasions..ie fabulous coverage. great for pics etc

      oh happy bath day is way too rosy for me XD
      this smells like perfume..not fruity i dont think
      i cant remembver how ma cherie smells like though

      but there are tons of hair colognes out there. i have one called sakuraberry [i posted it ages ago..like over a year] which i finished and smells like sakuras and a fruity berry smell. its very very nice.

      well it depends what kind of coverage do you want?
      and what do you want it to do? some ppl want it to treat scars, some whitening, some control oil
      i mean i want all of the above but it generaly concentrates on one part only heehee

      i got an iphone when i moved to hk and ya i couldnt hang a charm on it too
      but i bought a new case for it so now i can XD

      aww thank you!! if you can think of any new ways to improve for me, please let me know.
      ooh u are like my sister! she has dry skin too. i reccomend BRTC or Hanskin which is quite good. I also reccomend BB creams that are AQUA versions. For example hanskin has one, Dr Jart, Missha, Lioele..actually almost all the brands have a aqua or waterdrop version.
