My nighttime skin care routine took me years to perfect.
I remember being 22 and absolutely clueless about what product goes with what, which product I should put on my face first and which brands to ditch because they aren't good for sensitive and combination skin.  I was your typical cleanser-moisturizer-lip balm kinda girl-- no toner, no eye cream and no sunblock!  Such evil crime, I know.  Fast forward to being 26 and still without a proper nighttime routine when I noticed developing fine lines and dull, uneven skin tone.  It was a wakeup call that had me scouring the internet for product reviews, doing research, joining forums and subscribing to newsletters just to help me come up with a skin care routine that suits me best.

Now at 32, I am happy to report that I finally found my HG products-- the ones I cannot go to sleep without.  Most of the products here I've been using for almost 4 years now with the oldest being the Ibuki Refining Moisturizer and the newest discovery is the La Mer Moisturizing Cream (a new discovery despite being a pioneer in the industry because of its hefty price tag. haha!)

If you've been following me on my Instagram (@tonipino), you will know by now that I've updated my skin care routine but before I share the newest lineup (still in trial & error phase) here's my tried and tested products-- the ones I really swear by and have on standby should a new product fall short of my expectations.

So read on for my complete

NIGHTTIME SKINCARE ROUTINE

Here's me wearing tinted moisturizer, eyebrow makeup, lip and cheek tint.

1. Makeup Remover: BIFESTA BRIGHT UP CLEANSING LOTION

I didn't really bother buying a good makeup remover until I started using liquid foundation and played around with makeup some 3 years ago.  Prior to using liquid foundation, I only used Moist Labo BB cream on my face and have always turned to baby oil in removing them.  Not only did it fail in removing my makeup, it also gave me small red bumps and a much oilier t-zone and cheeks.  Ack!  This Bifesta Brightup Cleansing Lotion effectively removes stubborn waterproof eye makeup and even dead skin cells-- it even leaves my skin feeling so soft and supple, makes you think you're using a moisturizer instead of a makeup remover.  I highly recommend this if you're still on the hunt for a good makeup remover.

2. Cleanser: ESTÉE LAUDER NUTRITIOUS 2-IN-1 FOAM CLEANSER

I have squeezed the life out of this cleanser and even cut the tube in half not wanting to waste even a tiny speck.  Yes, I love it THAT much!  I really love how this foams up to a rich lather that effectively cleans my face without drying or flaking.  When I am not lazy, I use this as a purifying mask leaving it for 3-4 minutes to remove deep-seated dirt.

Foam cleansers tend to leave my face feeling really tight and dry after but this one leaves me feeling fresh, clean and surprisingly soft!  I use this day and night and never have my skin felt more clean and moisturized.  

3.  Toner:  DICKINSON'S PORE PERFECTING TONER

I have really sensitive skin and I avoided toners before because most of the products I've tried I felt have contributed to my breakouts but surprisingly, Dickinson's is a total game changer!  I use this in the morning and at night and in just 2 weeks since first use, my breakouts cleared significantly.  No more red bumps, no irritation and most importantly, no sting!  While others find the smell a little disturbing (Vodka on your skin, anyone?), I kinda like it because somehow, it gives me the assurance that it's really doing its job as a toner.  Weird, right?  I've been using this since 2015 after a friend, Joanna of Beauty Enthusiast in Cebu, featured this in one of her videos and this is now one of the products I cannot live without!

4. Serum: SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE POWER INFUSING CONCENTRATE

Serums were created to enhance the benefits of skincare products that follow.  It is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into skin thus allowing other treatments that follow to seep in and deliver more favorable results.  I have been using the Shiseido Ultimune since 2014 and I have not changed serum since then!  It's very light (just how serums should be) and is easily absorbed by the skin.  While the leaflet encourages you to use it twice a day, I only use this at night and it still doesn't disappoint!  I love how my skin feels so refreshed and supple after every use and don't get me started on the scent!  It's just divine!  Read more about Shiseido Ultimune and how I came about to love this product in this short Shiseido Ultimune product review.

5.  Treatment Lotion: BOBBI BROWN EXTRA TREATMENT LOTION

I have combination skin and while they recommend this for those with normal to dry skin, I still use this twice daily-- in the morning to prepare my skin for makeup and at night to prepare my skin for moisturizer.  Its rich water-based consistency gives my skin its much needed moisture boost on days when my skin feels like crap from sleeping late the night before or failing to drink enough water to keep my skin hydrated.

6.  Moisturizer:  SHISEIDO IBUKI REFINING MOISTURIZER

I am a creature of habit-- i need to have a cup of coffee upon waking up and before bedtime.  I tend stick to one brand alone and drink my coffee in my favorite spot when possible.  Same goes for all the products I put on my face-- case in point, this Ibuki Refining Moisturizer from Shiseido which I've been using since 2013.

I actually first tried their Benefiance range but shifted to Ibuki after I've visited 3 counters only to be told that it's been sold out for weeks without any idea as to when they can replenish their inventory.  And because I refuse to settle for second best, I decided to try their Ibuki range and have not changed moisturizers since then!
Ibuki targets dryness, corrects imperfections and roughness while providing optimum hydration-- these were the very concerns I've struggled with in my early twenties and the Shiseido Special beauty box subscription came in the nick of time.

Its ultra-light consistency might look a bit heavy but once you've applied it on your face, you can't help but appreciate how light and soothing it actually feels.  I use this at night, saturating my face with it and massaging it gently using light circular motions and whatever is left on my hands I massage it onto my neck in upward strokes.

My skin has never felt this good and suffice it to say that I buy backups whenever Shiseido counters go on sale which usually happens around December.

But on days when my skin needs a little more hydration or if I've been wearing makeup for 3 days straight, I go the extra mile and pile on another layer of moisturizer using 


LA MER MOISTURIZING CREAM.

I got this as a gift and this is just heaven-sent!  It soothes all your wrinkles, irritations, sensitivities and even worries away!  Best known as the cream of the crop of moisturizers, this miracle in a tub soothes my skin like no other, giving me softer, more radiant skin the day after.

After testing this out for a week, I can really attest that what they claim this cream to be is really true.  Unfortunately for me, I have to use this cream sparingly because.. $310 for a 2 oz tub (the one I have.)  Given its steep price, one would certainly think twice about buying it but would this be a good investment? Most certainly!  It definitely gives you the most bang for your buck.


7. Eye Cream: MIZON SNAIL REPAIR EYE CREAM

When you're in your twenties, it's a capital sin in beautyland if you're still not using an eye cream.  I started using an eye cream and eye mask only when I started noticing developing fine lines, how I wish I heeded my mom's warning and started using them early on.  But then again, I am stubborn like that and I only take action when I see the need to.  This Mizon eye cream may not have given me immediate results but with continued use, my crow's feet ceased to develop further, laugh lines slightly diminished and a stubborn furrow line on my forehead is now barely visible.

Sure, I may have used half of this tub before I noticed results but it's better than the previous anti-puff eye roller I used that did nothing at all to address my issues.  This is my second tub of Mizon Eye Cream and I use this together with an eye mask for optimum results.


8. Eye Mask: PUREDERM COLLAGEN EYE ZONE MASK

I use this mask on my under-eye as well as the brow area because if you're trying to keep the skin around your eyes from sagging, you might as well use the mask around the eyes, right? I use this every night after my eye cream and I leave it on until morning-- or until it falls off while I sleep. haha!  It may sound uncomfortable but it de-puffs my eyes effectively.  I sometimes use this mask before makeup application esp if I did not get enough sleep the night before.  It moisturizes and preps my eyes-- making my concealer last longer with minimal caking throughout the day.

9. Lip Balm: AVALON ORGANICS INTENSE DEFENSE
There's no explanation needed because really, who can sleep with dry lips? :D

You know you're trying to adult (a.k.a. getting older) when you take delight in the idea of "investing" in skin care, making it your top priority instead of makeup.  You know you're already there when loved ones go on out of the country trips and they ask you for your ideal pasalubong and your number 1 answer is SKIN CARE.

Achieve that Flawless Glow with Palmolive Naturals

August 3, 2016

City life for any twenty-something fresh out of college independent gal is both exciting and nerve-wracking.  It holds unlimited possibilities and endless opportunities for anyone coming to terms with living on their own and going after that dream career. I remember preparing for that first job interview feeling anxious but excited, ready but vulnerable. At the same time, I was sure of what I wanted, feeling secure in this city where I’ll be building my career and life at.

But living in the city has its downsides too.  With Cebu’s very busy lifestyle, bipolar weather and crazy traffic, dirt, pollution and the unforgiving heat often take a toll on one’s skin. City dirt and pollution makes my skin look dull, and it needs to be addressed with a sold beauty arsenal. I am very particular about what I use for my skin because not all products out in the market work for me.  I’ve used a soap before that left me squeaky clean after shower but almost instantly left me feeling tight all over (tightness is a sign of dry skin).  A complete and reliable cleansing regimen starts with a soap that cleans thoroughly without leaving my skin dry— and Palmolive does exactly just that.

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion: How to Use and Mini Review

May 29, 2016

When your skin begs for a little more hydration, and your moisturizers just don't make the cut, you turn to treatment lotions that do exactly just that-- boost your skin's hydration for a more supple and better-looking skin.

A few months ago, I attended a one-on-one Bobbi Brown lesson by Bobbi-trained Tamara Pineda and she demonstrated how to achieve a fresh no make-up look with just the basics. This of course covered the how-to's in applying your concealer and foundation. The very highlight of this workshop that stuck with me was the pre-makeup preparation which included the Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion.

I went home with a full-size bottle of this treatment lotion for me to incorporate in my everyday makeup routine and nightly regimen. I've been using this lotion for 3 months now and I'm happy to report that I finally found a product that addresses my skin concern regarding hydration.

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion is a preparative lotion that you apply first before your skincare routine to maximize skin's moisture. It is a water-based lotion perfect for anyone who needs an extra moisture boost and who likes their skin soothed, calm and more even looking.

For someone who grew up with a lot of skin issues ( I started using moisturizer when I was in 3rd grade ), it is imperative for me to find a product that targets all my problem areas without prominent downsides i.e. heavy feeling, stickiness, excess oil that leads to clogged pores. With the Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, I have noticed significant change in my skin's suppleness in just 3 weeks of use but because I wanted to make sure that it wan't just a temporary result, I used it for the next 3 months hoping to see optimum results. 

So this is me after shower- no moisturizer, no concealer, no sunblock, NO KILAY!
Just the treatment lotion.

Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda

I use the treatment lotion in the morning after applying my toner and before makeup, and at night after my toner and before my serum and moisturizer. While it does not promise acne-free and clearer skin ( you will need a different product to address these concerns ), it however promotes hydration making your skin more supple, more plump and better looking with that youthful glow. And because it is water-based, it is easily absorbed by the skin without giving you a heavy sticky feeling.

Typically, this is how I use my BB Extra Treatment Lotion in the morning and at night:

MORNING: Cleansing • Toner • BB Extra Treatment Lotion • Moisturizer • Makeup

AT NIGHT: Cleanse/Exfoliate • Toner • BB Extra Treatment Lotion • Serum • Moisturizer

I normally use 2 drops of the lotion but on days when I feel like my skin needs more boost and at night when the AC gives your face that drying feeling, I use 3 drops and massage it slowly and evenly on my face using my fingers.Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda
While it looks complicated and takes a whole lot of time, trust me, your skin will actually thank you for it.

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion has Glycerin and Hyaluronate that binds moisture to skin for a plumped, more radiant appearance. Finally, Trelahose, a sugar-derived ingredient, promotes long term hydration without the sticky feeling.

This treatment lotion is one of my highly recommended buys if you're looking for a product to help you boost skin hydration. Expect better skin texture, lesser fine lines and a more youthful glow with continued use.

BEAUTY BLOG: Shiseido Ultimune 7-Day Challenge

September 15, 2014

my skin care regimen, i have to say, is the most taken for granted aspect in addressing the needs of my total well-being. i didn't really take it seriously until i was 26, an age that is considered a bit late when talking about skin care since experts say that when you hit 20, that's when you start looking for skin care products that work for you. 

quite honestly, the very thing that prompted me to start addressing my skin issues was when i started noticing fine lines along the outer corners of my eyes. they weren't that noticeable yet but we all know crow's feet are just beyond perplexing and depressing. that's when i also realized that the current product i was using wasn't really doing its job. so i ditched my old one, went skin care shopping, used one night cream after another until last year when i received a Shiseido Benefiance range from BDJ box and their Ibuki range a few months after. I was hooked ever since!

So you guys can just imagine my delight when i received my August BDJ box and found a full size bottle of their newest range of prestige skincare, the Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate! i was one of the Golden Ticket Winner and i couldn't be any happier! such luck, right?

The Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate forges new ground in the science of beauty by taking a preventive approach to skincare and strengthens skin immunity. This exclusive technology provides a unique botanical blend gingko, Japanese shiso, and aromatic thyme to protect, strengthen and maintain healthy-looking skin. 

I tried this serum on the night i received it, after my toner and before my moisturizer because the leaflet suggests that you use it before your other creams as this helps enhance its effects. but because i wanted to see just how effective this is without my Vissionaire skin corrector, i used it alone for 7 days and i gotta say, im quite happy with the results!

my skin feels softer, is more supple and even more radiant even after 7 days! i love that the consistency is very light, it doesn't give you that oily, sticky and heavy feeling like how some serums feel and is easily absorbed by the skin. it has a light refreshing scent that reminds me of Doublemint chewing gum for some reason. haha. i use it even around the eye area and i'm quite impressed with how it addressed my developing dark circles. i sleep fairly late (like 4AM late) and i expected a lot of breakouts and other skin imperfections but surprisingly, i didn't have to deal with any of that.
