IVI COLLAGEN NIGHT CREAM: My New "Overnight" Regimen to Battle Off Skin Aging

I have been out too much lately. Having said that I work in the "events" industry made me stay out late most of the time. And I know that it's not just my "physical" body which is at stake here. My skin as well.

Of course when the skin does not also get the much needed rest that it needs. But sometimes rest is not enough so tried to use a night cream to see if it helps.

This night cream is IVI PREMIUM COLLAGEN ANTI-AGING NIGHT CREAM. This is my first time to use a night cream. I've read before that Romans were even known to put Olive Oil on their skin to retain the skin's moisture.

PHP 1,250

How do we differentiate a night cream from a day cream?

Aside from the fact that "night" creams are used during the night, night creams used to be heavy and "pasty" when applied on the face. But now the good thing is night creams now are not like that anymore. And I can attest to that when I tried IVI PREMIUM COLLAGEN ANTI-AGING NIGHT CREAM.

It felt non-greasy when I applied to my face. It has a nice smell that will make you smell it more. A few dabs of it is already okay.

This one comes in 30grams and costs Php 1,250 (srp). Not bad for a night cream because most night creams I know in the market these days also costs around that much. More or less, it will last for a month and half. I know most of us "busy" and working moms don't have that "regular" regimen. But I realized as we approach aging, we really have to take precautions to delay skin aging (if not stop us from aging).

Here are some things you need to know about this revolutionary anti-aging product from Japan.


  • Designed to moisturize & repair your skin while you sleep.  
  • A Collagen infused night cream that is rich in anti-oxidants. It will smoothen the skin, reduce fine lines & wrinkles to give you a soft and youthful complexion.
  • Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen mixed with exotic Japanese ingredients formulated to give you smoother & younger-looking skin.
  • Egg shell membrane, which is a good source of collagen as well, helps repair damage skin cells when applied. 
  • The night cream is also infused with Licorice Root Extract that reduces hyper-pigmentation by blocking tyrosinase, a skin enzyme responsible for the pigmentation process. 
  • Reduced hyper-pigmentation soothe, clarify and brighten skin.
I've posted some photos of how I apply IVI COLLAGEN PREMIUM NIGHT CREAM every night:

First, it's much better if you cleanse it first with a toner. Aside from toning the skin, the toners also cleanses the clogged pores of your face.

After Cleansing the face, Dab the IVI COLLAGEN PREMIUM NIGHT CREAM all over your face. Make sure that you evenly applied it allover the face and neck.

Then after dabbing it on your face, spread it evenly in an upward manner, so that the skin of your face will not sag. After that, the face is ready for a night of rest.

The face will be moisturized even while your sleeping. No worries because it stain your pillows or bed sheets. Just make sure that it already absorbed by the skin.

I took this picture just this morning with no make-up so guys will get to see the difference. I slept late pa nyan ah:) lol . If you will notice it made the face more supple and radiant.

I was happy with results, at 32 ( yes I'm already 32 y/o), taking care of my skin is just "easy-peasy" with IVI RYO Products most especially with the new IVI COLLAGEN PREMIUM NIGHT CREAM.

Tourism Malaysia Forges Stronger Partnerships, Launches Visit Malaysia 2014 Campaign

There is a good reason why there is a steadily growing number of Filipinos that yearly visit Malaysia. One of these is the careful way Tourism Malaysia endeavors to offer the best tour packages to its local travel agents and partners.

In the beautiful tradition of Tourism Malaysia’s colorful promotional campaign, the Visit Malaysia 2014 launch at the Solaire Resorts Manila on 03 October 2013 was every bit truly Malaysian – vibrant, exciting, and fascinating!

Aside from Madame Chong, His Excellency Dato’ Mohd Zamri Mohd Kassim, the Ambassador of Malaysia to the Philippines, also encouraged the guests to visit Malaysia and discover for themselves the reason why more than half a million Filipinos visited Malaysia in 2012.

Speaking in behalf of the Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Ramon Jimenez, DOT Undersecretary Danilo Corpuz greeted and congratulated the Tourism Malaysia for its noteworthy promotional initiatives.
The Malaysian delegation is comprised of 31 organisations including Johor Tourism Department, Sabah Tourism Board, Labuan Corporation, KidZania Kuala Lumpur, Legoland Malaysia, Sepang International Circuit, and Regency Hotel. 

Cultural Celebration
Cultural performers from Malaysia showcased their uniquely captivating grace and passion through their dance.  Dressed in their colorful Malaysian costumes, they moved with gusto to the tune of their authentic Malaysian music!  It was their beautiful smile that was most endearing!

A Roti Canai artist wowed the crowd when he displayed his unique prowess behind the delicate art of making the Indian-influenced flatbread of Malaysia.

In a beautiful cultural exchange, Joseph Valerio, aka Joseph The Artist, also displayed top-notch artistry when he transported the captivated audience from Manila to Malaysia through his sand artistry.  This Talentadong Pinoy grand champion also performed his winning piece in the said reality talent search that earned him the audience’s admiration.

Event host extraordinaire Drew Arellano kept everyone’s interest hooked into the program.

Prizes and Surprises
Meanwhile, Tourism Malaysia’s partner airlines gave away raffle prizes that amounted to hundreds of thousands of pesos, to the delight of the guests. The generous sponsors included the Philippine Airlines, Malaysian Airlines, Air Asia Zest, and Cebu Pacific. 

Luxury cruise ship, Star Cruises, also raffled off 3D/2N complimentary stay in its Star Cruise-Libra while the Berjaya Hotel in Makati gave out three gift certificates for 3D/2N accommodation worth almost P100,000.
Nobody went home empty-handed as everyone was given Tourism Malaysia bags of goodies
4D Exhibit
Prior to the formal gala dinner, guests were treated to a 4D mini-exhibit that showcased the beauty of Malaysia.  A Malaysian batik artist demonstrated the actual art of making batik fabrics.  Roti Canai and Teh Tarik, authentic Malaysia milk tea, were available for visitors to taste and savor.  Malaysian musical instruments were on display to showcase the festive culture of Malaysia.  And a flatscreen television on the floor gave a virtual experience of diving right into Malaysia’s mystical diving destinations.

Tourism Malaysia’s Targets
In 2012, a total of 508,744 Filipinos visited Malaysia. Arrivals from the Philippines for the first half of 2013 were 277,378, which was an increase of 16.5% compared to the same period in 2012. This year, Tourism Malaysia aims to attract 520,000 Filipino tourists to Malaysia.

With the way Tourism Malaysia is conscientiously looking after the Filipino tourists and travellers, Tourism Malaysia’s targets are very well within reach.

Movie ALert: THOR The Dark World on Oct. 30, 2013

Lately I've been swamped with a lot of things in mind. Work, Family and etc. That I don't have time anymore to bond with my kids. Lately my kids have been telling me that they wanted to watch the upcoming Marvel movie "Thor: The Dark World. Yes been hearing this movie from their mouths for almost a month and they can't wait to troop to the nearest movie house.

And just like any doting mom, I'll give in to their whims but I told them to promise that they'll have good grades this 2nd quarter or else , no movie!!! So that was what we agreed upon.

And because this is quite awesome for the family, I'm planning to watch it somewhere they have never been to. And what great timing it is, PMCM EVENTS MANAGEMENT is having a Special Block Screening of THOR:The DARK WORLD this coming Oct 30, 2013 at SHANGRI-LA MALL Edsa Plaza 9pm.

I have personally watched a movie here at Shangri-La Mall Cinema, and I find it very comfy and spacious here to watch. It is a nice movie house where one can sit back, relax and watch a movie.

I chose to watch it through PMCM EVENTS MANAGEMENT Special Block Screening because I get to reserve our seats by just texting the contact person and I'm guaranteed of our seats. This means that no more hassle in lining up to get our tickets and going early to watch.

And from the feedback of the previous satisfied moviegoers, with the price of Php550 per ticket, you get a drink and popcorn and lots of freebies + raffle prizes from its generous sponsors. So that was so worth my money : Reserve seating, free drink and popcorn plus freebies!!!!

So who else is going, might as well reserve your tickets via the contact number printed on the poster above so you'll have the chance to get your choice of seats.

"Bet On Your Baby Philippines" is the Newest Kapamilya Show That Advocates Strong Connections Between Babies and their Families

In a family treat that with a message that is very much close to her heart, acclaimed television personality and hands-on mother Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo stands proud to share both education and enjoyment as host of the Philippines’ newest game show “Bet On Your Baby”.
Seeing it fit for how she is and who she is, Judy Ann has been especially excited venturing into this new project, which is designed for families with children aged two to three and a half years old. Through a series of games, it aims to prove the importance of having a strong bond between parents and their kids.
“When the show was presented to me, and when I got the whole feel of ‘Bet On Your Baby’, I was so entertained by seeing how they kids were really just playing,” said Judy Ann, who found a great sense of enjoyment from her first taping sessions. Aside from that, the show’s games are designed in ways that allow for the children to learn while playing, making her even more eager to take on being the show’s host.
Being an advocate of creating strong connections with her children, she finds a certain thrill in discovering what they’re capable of on a daily basis, which she also sees in what her guests bring to the floor. According to Judy Ann, “There’s a point of conversation with you and the parents that join the show. We can relate to each other.”  
Judy Ann also immediately took a liking to the kids that she has met through the show so far. “It’s easy to love the program because you’re dealing with babies, and you can’t go wrong with that,” she said.
This connection that she formed with the families that she has met on the show so far is one that she hopes will branch out to inspire other Filipino families, especially with the show presenting techniques that parents and children can take into their own homes.
 “I’m just hopeful that we can inspire people to enjoy having their kids around. ‘Bet On Your Baby’ is here to help parents enjoy their kids more. Besides, being a parent, I learned that when it comes to your children, you don’t want to miss any moment. It’s important to be beside them in whatever they go through. I think when you come to that point, it’s true that you become selfless. It’s true that you smile without reason. All of a sudden, there’s so much more value in your being alive.”
“Bet On Your Baby”, hosted by Judy Ann Santos, is set to hit Philippine television this October. For updates on the program, visit and like “Bet On Your Baby” on Facebook ( and follow @betonyourbabyph on Twitter or betonyourbabyphilippines on Instagram.
