  • My Interview with Godfrey Gao, SK-II Men Global Brand Ambassador


     meet Gofrey Gao, SK-II Men Ambassador

    You can't help but fall in love with such a gorgeous man like Godfrey Gao, the suave Taiwanese-Canadian angel sent from heaven who's mother is actually Malaysian! (George Town, Penang). I had the opportunity to interview this hunk back in January when Godfrey Gao, SK-II Men Global Brand Ambassador came to Malaysia to launch the first SK-II #ChangeDestiny Museum at 1 Utama Shopping Center. The SK-II #ChangeDestiny Museum is a experiential journey of how one can change their skin destiny with SK-II.

    I just wish I was alone with him in the interview room *giggles* but alas the media and I have only 10 minutes to speak to him and we got our questions out. For starters, Godfrey shared how SK-II has transformed his skin destiny (he used to have bad skin) and how it has continue to help him maintain his good looks. He added that men shouldn't be afraid to take care of their skin. Here's what we (the media) asked him in this exclusive interview session:

    How does it feel being the first Asian model for Louis Vuitton?
    It feels great. It was a couple of years ago and I still hold the name for the first Asian male that’s been on the global campaign. It’s an honour to be on such a luxury brand’s eye, it was kind of like a miracle for me. I didn’t know what to expect – it was really awesome to become one of the faces and I’ve been working very closely with Louis Vuitton ever since.

    My skin condition wasn’t really a hundred percent, I had a lot of blemishes and pimples and after a month, my face would be clogged up with makeup. I had a lot of blackheads and it was really bad up until I had the SK-II Men offer. I started using SK-II Men during that same film and I’ve notice the difference after two weeks and the makeup artist said the same thing – ‘What are you doing differently and what are you using?’. My skin is more balanced, the condition is way better, I have a less oily face so I don’t have to reapply makeup as much. Everything was smoother and it has been great ever since and I have been using it everyday with the same regiment – I wake up, have a shower and clean my face with the facial cleanser, put on the Facial Treatment Essence, the toner to balance out your skin, and the anti-aging moisturizer is great and I do the same thing before I go to bed.

    What’s your favourite SK-II Men product?
    My favourite would be the Facial Treatment Essence – that’s probably the only product that has brought my skin to a really balanced condition. I love everything! There’s a new product called the Brightening Serum if you’re going to a photo shoot, it will make your skin glow. The UV Protect Moisturizer is great for when you’re having a day outside.

    How do you take care of your inner health?
    When I go to sleep, I take care of it. Let’s say I’m in production for two, three months and I’m really stressed by the producers and the directors and I’m under a lot of pressure – after the production I like to have a vacation. A beach or a tropical island to relax and ease off my mind and not to think about anything else.

    When it comes to men’s skincare, some men can get a little intimidated by the term – what’s your advice for men who are looking to start a skincare regime?
    I would say don’t be afraid. Men do think that skincare products are a big no-no – I’m fine, I play sports, I eat well but they’re going to start noticing when they turn a certain age so time would definitely come up and hunt them in the future. I would suggest to them to them, don’t be afraid, start early – start right now. Have your regular skin regimens and stick to it and just be positive and it wouldn’t hurt to try – I would suggest that to every guy who’s scared of skin products.

    With your busy schedule and lack of sleep, do you have any tips for men out there?
    Besides skin care products, I would say if you’re travelling a lot, if you have late schedules and off schedules, jet lagged, you can’t really do much except your intake of food and beverages. I think that’s pretty much the most important thing, I mean you don’t even have time to exercise. I would suggest just by drinking a lot of water, eating a lot of fruit, have a good diet so you feel good. Not a lot of red meat, maybe stick to chicken or fish. It starts from a diet and it would definitely pay off when you’re feeling down or tired but red meat does give you tiredness and stress – if you stick to what I said, it would be alright.

     pics from my phone, I manage to take a selfie with him!

    When it came to my turn to ask Godfrey Gao questions, I just didn't know what else to ask as it was all said and done. Not wanting to take up his time (but we all know we want to spend more time with him) I said in my calm and collected tone, "I won't take up any more of your time but since all questions are asked, I could only think of one thing now..."

    If you could describe SK-II Men in one word, what would it be? - Tammy Lim
    Godgrey Gao (I think I caught him by surprise) said "SK-II Men in one word, there's so many words.... umm.. " *gives the innocent face look* put on his thinking cap for a while, looking oh so handsome. Then he look up and smile and said "Perfect"!.

    And all the ladies in the room was smitten. You could hear our ovaries explode (the social media terminology for omg you're freakin hot I want you). I want to bring him home to show my mother no wait, I want to update my Facebook relationship status to be "now in relationship with Godfrey Gao, SK-II Men's Ambassador"

    5. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. I’ll give you a link on your web blog. I recently came to know about www.avanaaustralia.com.au/, their Mineral Makeup are very effective.
