My Qing Ming Essentials

This post is a little bit late. As you all know, Qing Ming (Ching Ming) falls on hot season. There are some preparation needed to prevent me (and my skin) from dehydration. I don't put on makeup when going to the tombstone. Anyway, these are the essential products I had for Qing Ming:

1. Yadah Oh My Sunblock
Sunblock is the biggest essential when it comes to Qing Ming. Since there are a lot of activities under the sun, I definitely need some SPF protection. I will keep this in my bag to reapply after a few hours. Full review <<here>>.

2. Mentholatum Water Lip Tinted Lip Balm
I reduce drinking water during Qing Ming because there won't be any toilet around if I needed to wee wee. Lip balm will keep my lips moisturized and won't crack because of the hot weather. I pick the Mentholatum water Lip Tinted Lip Balm because it provides long hour hydration compared to my other lip balm, although the tinted effect is not so obvious. Full review <<here>>.

3. Wet tissue
I keep this because usually I'm the one to pull weeds and clean the tombstone. After done with all that, the wet tissue is a super convenient to keep my hands clean.

4. Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray
This is just like ordinary mist spray. I find that the Evian one stays cool throughout the day even under the hot sun. It gives that temporary "shiokness" while you're feeling hot. I bought this in Hong Kong. I'm not too sure if we have it in Malaysia. Anyone seen this before in our local store?

5. Sunglass
How could you go Qing Ming without a sunglass? I love this oversized Gucci sunglass. This was originally AUD700+ but I bought it from sale at Sunglass Hut for only AUD300+. Super worth it! Besides, I get some worthless bragging rights about Kendra (The Girls Next Door) and Kim Kardashian having the same sunglasses as mine.

Do you think my essentials are practical or is it too much? What is your essential product for Qing Ming?

OMG Ching Ming essentials also come out d, lol!
Agree with your choices, except I can't wear shades with specs on (definitely can't wear contacts), and I bring a whole tumbler full of ice and a bottle of water to hydrate. :D
