OOTD : Featuring Longchamp Mariniere in Coral

Hi hi, I am back with OOTD post :)

My fiancee is so sweet, he gave this beautiful Longchamp Mariniere as my birthday gift. I was so surprised because these last two years, we just tell the gift we want from each other, simply because we just want to get real, a gift that the other really want, so no surprise at all. And this year, I told him not to buy me anything because we need to save up for the future. But, surprise, surprise! I love him so so much! <3 p="">
So let me not waste it, by wearing it proudly for my OOTD last Satuday. It's beautiful, isn't it? :")

Sukin Skincare : Sulphate and Paraben Free

I did mention that I am allergic to Sulphate or SLS and Paraben last time, and I think I have to share my story here. In case anyone is wondering.

This allergic was so nasty, I had itchy and flaky skin, all over the body (except my face, it just dry or red, not itchy, thank God). I applied body butter every time after taking a bath, but the moisture only last 3-4 hours, I hate it, not to mention the sticky yucky feeling. The same thing happened when I apply lotion, the moisture even only lasts about 2 hours.

I tried almost every brand for soap and lotion, from The Body Shop, Sebamed, Loccitane, Bath and Body Works to Origins. Nothing really works. Some even brought me to itchy skin, I have to throw away the product or give it away for my mom or sister (they don't have sensitive skin like me,fyi)

So when I know that I might be have this kind of allergic, I changed my entire body care to Sulphate and Paraben free products. Thanks to Female Daily forum particularly in Organic Skincare thread, I found Sukin.

From their website:
Sukin is proud Australian brand, dedicated to offering the ultimate in natural personal care, free from the myriad of harsh chemicals used in many products on the market today. Sukin products do not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES),  synthetic fragrances, animal derivatives, harsh detergents, propylene glycol, artificial colours, triethanolamine, mineral oils, EDTA, or parabens.
My picks are Botanical Body Wash, Purifying Body Scrub, and Hydrating Body Lotion. I purchased them from Been using it religiously since last month, and I significantly see the progress. My skin is not itchy nor flaky (very good point!) instead it's soft and supple. Cam't thank God enough.

Geez, I wish I found it this information earlier. I feel pity for my dry skin because of my ignorance toward the ingredients all of this years. I simply thought that I was born with 'that' kind of skin T_T
