Dear Dreamers
Introducing a new natural skin care line… for men! Skin care for men has been well met but unlike skin care for women, there are not as much organic skin care products. Since this review is for men, I will be getting Isaac’s input on the products as well as talk a bit about the skin care line.

Aimed to bring back the once popular image of a chivalrous male, Tondo X is a new skin care brand by Skinbae Global Inc. (Skin Before Anything Else). We all have the same question, why TondoX? The owner and brains behind this new brand explains that his grandfather grew up in Tondo.

In urban Manila, people from Tondo are considered street smart and tough, growing up on the streets and wary of street gangs who emanate from the surrounding slums.

The TondoX man is an evolved hunter gatherer and fighter who does what it takes to provide for his family. He is also, however, an Old School Macho Man who was brought up by his mother to have a high regard and respect for womankind, unlike the rampant misogyny that exists in society today.

Essential oils, such as tea tree oil and argan oil, and natural plant products like seaweed extract and aloe vera, are carefully combined to produce a shampoo, facial wash, pomade and aftershave. Specially formulated is the masculine wash for private areas. Yes, you heard it right, they have a masculine wash which is their most revolutionary product.

I attended the product launching of TondoX where the owner told us all about the new skin care brand. I was also given the face wash, aftershave and pomade to try (on Isaac lol).

Gentle on the skin, TondoX facial wash is made with 98% natural ingredients. It is no surprise that this face wash for men did not irritate Isaac’s skin.

It is clear in color and leaves a minty feeling to the skin. Isaac has dry and sensitive skin so he is happy to find a face wash catered to men that does not irritate and leave the skin feeling dry even without using moisturizer. According to Isaac, yes, he would buy one after this one has run out because he really liked the face wash.

While other pomades thin the hair, TondoX pomade claims to thicken hair over time.

I’ll posting Isaac’s experience with the pomade after we get a haircut. As for the aftershave, Isaac does not shave because of the lack of facial hair but when he decides to try shaving, I’ll post the experience as well.


The facial wash 200ml, aftershave 150ml and masculine wash 300ml are sold at P350 each at SRP. They also have franchising packages and authorized dealer packages. For more information, visit them on their Facebook page at
