Skin Care for Men: Pocholo Sandejas

I had a lot of fun with my friend Pocholo Sandejas last week when he tried the Nowie Mac Beauty BB Cream for me. That day was made of great use as I asked him to bring the skin care for men that he uses regularly beforehand.

I have 2 brothers and a dad (you may be thinking that I came from white foam like Aphrodite but no). The only common thing they have in their skin care regimen apart from deodorant is perfume. Perfume is not skin care but I can’t find any that they have in common.

Their skin care for men needs vary. My eldest brother has the same skin type as I do while my other brother and dad have normal skin types.

Dad uses after-shave creams and shaving cream and my brothers don’t.

My eldest brother uses moisturizer, cream for seborrheic dermatitis, and other medicated products prescribed for his sensitive skin.

My other brother is heavy on perfume and shampoo for men but I don’t think those are considered skin care products.

Less rambling and more talking about skin care for men ala Pocholo Sandejas.

My friend Pocholo has really good skin.

He’s 34 years old and is very particular with taking care of his skin hence he’s able to maintain his youthful glow.

If you want your boyfriend to look like a snack, keep on reading.

He uses a total of 6 skin care for men products regularly.

I’m not going to list the other products he uses on special occasions.

Skin Care For Men of Pocholo Sandejas

Yamashiro Japan Organic Deep Intensive Whitening Soap

Yamashiro Soap DL

Available in Lazada BUY HERE

The Yamashiro Japan Organic Deep Intensive Whitening Soap isn’t easily accessible as it’s mostly sold online.

He’s been using it for a year and he said that the oil-production of his face was greatly diminished.

According to him, the first 3 months of use will make you experience micro-peeling and his face felt fresh and smooth.

It’s the only soap that he uses on his face and he describes the scent as “organic”.

The feeling after washing the face according to him is tight.

He experiences acne breakouts in 1s or 2s and the Yamashiro soap instantly dries them out.

The only downside is the price as it costs around 800 PHP and it only lasts for 2 months when used regularly on the face.

From my research online, it’s mostly comprised of acids that cleanse and exfoliate the face.

The thing that’s special about it is it contains Hyaluronic Acid which we all know is very good in moisturizing.

A good alternative would be the Belo Intensive Whitening Bar as it gives a glycolic peel effect. It doesn’t have Hyaluronic Acid but it’s glycerin-based making it less drying than other skin whitening soaps. Belo Intensive Whitening Bar Review.

Nivea Men Cell Repair and Protect Whitening Body Lotion

Pocholo likes that the body lotion from Nivea doesn’t feel sticky and the scent is “masculine”.

According to him, it’s easily absorbed by the skin and doesn’t feel sticky even while sweating or working-out in the gym.

The whitening effects were gradual and he was okay with it as it made his skin lighter and tight overtime.

It seems like a good skin care for men staple as he gave it a rating of 8/10.

Nivea Extra White Firming Body Lotion

Nivea Men Extra White Firming Body Lotion

Available in Lazada BUY HERE

Pocholo said that the skin whitening effect of this is of turtle-like pace.

He however, likes how it’s easily absorbed by the skin and makes it feel very smooth.

He recommends the Nivea Men Cell Repair and Protect Whitening Body lotion though as it’s more powerful in skin whitening and gives a non-greasy feeling.

Definitely skip this as it’s not a good product to be included in your beau’s skin care for men regimen.

L’Oreal Revitalift Night Cream

L'Oreal Revitalift Anti Wrinkle Night Cream

Available in Lazada BUY HERE

You might be thinking that a Night Cream is for old and crusty people. Contrary to that, it’s very wise to include it in your skin care for men regimen.

Prevention is better than cure as the old saying goes. The earlier you take care of the buggers (wrinkles and fine lines) the slower they’ll manifest.

L’Oreal Revitalift contains a retinoid that hastens skin-cell turnover.

It’s quite pricy but the ingredients are premium and it’s a must if you can maintain its 700+ PHP a month tag price.

According to Pocholo, he felt that the skin of his face looked healthier after only a week of use.

He really loves how his face feels very supple especially after waking up.


From his review, it’s safe to say that Pocholo’s Skin Care Trinity includes Yamashiro Soap, Nivea Men Cell Repair and Protect Whitening Body Lotion, and L’Oreal Revitalift.

His skin care for men regimen doesn’t stop with 3 products as I’m going to include bonus items that he uses when he goes out of the house.

I personally think that this product is good for men who don’t like to powder their face to mask oiliness.

He uses it as a primer before applying BB Cream and he likes that it’s odorless (good for sensitive skin).

You can also use it as a standalone product if you just want to reduce the oil you produce all-throughout the day.

It’s a great addition to your/your hubby’s skin care for men regimen and he rated it at 8/10.

Quick FX Tinted Moisturizer

Pocholo only uses this product if the weather is cold and drying.

He uses it as a standalone product as it already has medium-coverage. He rates the coverage at 6/10.

Men who have dry skin and need some blemishes to be covered in a subtle way will benefit a lot.

My Take

Philippines has a very macho culture but it’s quite idiotic to equate masculinity with neglect.

Skin is the largest organ in the body and needs to be nourished and protected.

Men and women share the same organ and there’s nothing emasculating about using skin care for men.

If you enjoyed this article or your boyfriend is in dire need of a makeover, don’t hesitate to share!
