Summer bag essentials in the 852

It’s back. The hot and humid summer. Ok, sounds like I’m complaining but I’m not. I love summer and sun way too much! Yet, even though beach days on weekends are definitely my thing, heading-off to work on a hot and humid day is something I like a little less. But having the right props in my bag always make it easier to deal with a sticky summer in the city. 

Vita Coco Coconut Water

Hydration is a must. And nothing like a fresh natural coconut water to get you through a hot day. 
Plus it’s calories free and the small 330ml format is just perfect to carry-on. And if you are looking for a fruity twist, they got you covered too. I usually always pack the Vita Coco Pineapple. So yummy!

PARA’KITOTM Family Spray

Mosquitos are basically my summer nightmare. Whenever they are mosquitos around, you can be assured that I’ll get all the bites. So can’t really go out without my spray and loving this one because its natural and dermatologically tested. Because yes I wanna protect myself but don’t really feel like spraying my skin with toxic ingredients. 
Also loving the convenient travel-size and the fact that bottle is made of recycle bio-sourced material.

TRIWA sunglasses

Sunglasses are my must. To protect my eyes but also perfect my summer looks. And I love the Swedish designs and Summer shades from TRIWA. 
Just bought myself a pair of Crystal KLARA  and love them!

John Masters Organics – Rose & Aloe Hydrating Toning Mist 

Summer bag essentials in the 852
Nothing like a spray of this mist to freshen-up your face. A must-have with this heat and humidity! Plus loving the fresh smell.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Moisturizing Lotion SPF20

Summer bag essentials in the 852
Just because you ain’t gonna spend the day laying on the beach doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your skin. Also because the weather is humid and your skin seems oily doesn’t mean it doesn’t need hydration. I always make sure to apply several times a day a moisturizing cream with sun protection and this one from Caudalie is probably one of my fav: oil-free, tightens the pores and reduces excess sebum. Plus divine scent, like all Caudalie’s product. Must have! 
HKD 310/40ml
