Hi, at long last I got a video up!  The camera work on my Morning Skincare Routine video is a bit shaky sorry about that but Mom really did her best, she helped me that morning get it done, God bless her.  Drink Bonamine nalang before watching, lol.


1. Safeguard Derma Sense Cleanser for Sensitive Skin (fragrance-free)
2. NIVEA Soft Moisturizer (bought in Japan)
3. This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up Moisturizer
4. VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Face Cover Sunscreen SPF45
5. NYX BB Beauty Balm in shade “Natural” (oil-free)

Of course you understand that on some days I don’t get to use all of the ones mentioned here.  Sometimes, I leave out one or two of these in the rush, but right now these are all the products I’ve been reaching for before I’m out the door in the morning.  Click continue to get to the video.

    Love the candid video! I hope you don’t mind me sharing, but here’s mine who has really oily-sensitive skin (by the way, I love that your products are easily available locally, except for the Nivea Soft. This Works, I think is available in Sephora. Great for dry-sensitive skin):
    – Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser (I also use this at night, I love that it has AHA, makes my skin soft and smooth, removes oil)
    – Derma E Soothing Toner with Pycnogenol. Toner for me is really a must.
    – First Aid Beauty Mattefying Gel – I love this moisturizer! It’s not really mattefying (I still oil after a few hours), but it holds so well on my skin type AND our weather. Even if I oil, my face is not that slick, lol. Unfortunately, the downside is that it’s not available locally. So I hoard several tubes of this whenever I make a purchase.
    – VMV Hypoallergenics Armada SPF 45 – like yours! Love this product, just bought another tube.
    – Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 Oil-Free – I don’t use this often, but I like the coverage of this and my skin does not look ashy, unlike when I use BB Creams. My shade is Fawn.

    🙂 By the way, your mom is so cool to video you doing your skincare routine. I don’t think mine will have the same patience. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! We almost have the same steps but I don’t skip toner. Ahh! I wash my face with the Etude House Baking Powder facial wash, tone with Dickinson’s Witch hazel, moisturize with my Etude House Age Defense Emulsion (this is my ultra mega holy grail moisturizer!) then put some SPF using the Etude House sunprise sun cream. Wow! Now that I’m writing this, I use a lot of Etude House products! Haha. I also sometimes use the Etude House Face Blur. Well that added to my list of Etude House products. Ahaha. Thank you for this post and I like how short and straight to the point your video is. 🙂
