Regular facials not only stimulates circulation and removes dead skin to reveal a healthier, hydrated and radiant complexion. It also provides physiological and psychological benefits.

I must admit that I’ve not been faithfully having my facials done due to the lack of time ever since I had a baby. Therefore, it’s no surprise that my skin was lackluster and in bad shape. A skin consultation revealed that my skin was dehydrated in most areas, badly clogged and dull.

The Pure Blossom Treatment; one of the treatments being offered at Bella Skin Care was recommended for my skin type. Designed to boost skin repair and rejuvenation, the Pure Blossom Treatment aims to heal and improve elasticity. Armed with antioxidants such as Vitamin C, CoEnzyme Q10 & Glycolic Acid, it helps the skin protect against sun damage while encouraging skin exfoliation for a renewed complexion.

After changing into the treatment gown and settling down in my assigned therapy room. My face was once again given yet another close-up examination. My beauty therapist mentioned that my skin was dry and sensitive, especially in the areas around my nose, upper lips and the forehead. She also noted that my chin area was showing signs of clogged pores. I was advised to regularly exfoliate my skin to reduce and prevent congested pores.

The treatment begin with the therapist getting me to inhale some aromatherapy essential oil to relax. Next, I was treated to a pampering welcome head and shoulder massage. This was followed by the removal of my makeup, a cleanse and exfoliation scrub. At the same time, a rose scented facial mist was used to soothe and calm skin. Benefits of mist include leaving skin radiant and hydrated.

I dread the extraction the most of all in facials because they tend to hurt so much, in fact, causing me to tear a lot too. However, my beauty therapist’s skillful hands were so nimble and gentle. And guess what? No tears at all too. I suppose that the facial steam did also play a part in opening up my pores so that the extraction was a breeze. My brows which have not been trimmed for ages were also tidied up.

Once all the gunk and blackheads were removed, the beauty therapist then applied soothing lotion to calm my skin. All these while, I was still being treated to the facial steam with rose water to soothe my skin.

Then, the therapist applied the Pure Blossom serum containing CoEnzyme Q10 for me. Having the facial mist on also helped opened my pores to fully absorb the serum’s essence. CoEnzyme Q10 has potent antioxidant benefits, it boosts skin cell renewal, stimulates collagen growth while protecting against sun damage. Seriously, I could go on and on about its wonderful benefits but you get the idea.

As I allowed my skin to absorb the goodness of the Pure Blossom serum, I was given a  hand paraffin wax. Now this is why I enjoy having facials at Bella Skin Care, because it’s almost like a head to toe pampering session. You get a head and shoulder massage, hand paraffin wax, hand massage and your brows tidied up too.

Finally, it was time for my favorite part of every facial; the mask. Here I am enjoying the Pure Blossom mask packed with wholesome goodness of antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Glycolic Acid.

I was left to rest for awhile with the mask on and I actually drifted off to sleep. Ahhhh.. pure bliss. Hence, I was almost disappointed when the beauty therapist returned to the room as I knew that my pampering facial session was coming to an end soon. But it was not before she indulged me in a relaxing hand massage after removing the paraffin wax. The mask was cleansed off and sunscreen applied to my skin. Next, I was treated to yet another massage known as the goodbye massage which targeted the shoulder and back.

What a lovely experience I had at Bella Skin Care. Much to my surprise and delight, I left the place without any embarrassing post-extraction redness too. My skin also appeared brighter and clearer, thanks to the Vitamin C & Glycolic Acid.

[REVIEW] SkinLab Medical Spa Radiant Peel Review

Sometime back, I went for my very first chemical peel at SkinLab Medical Spa, which is located conveniently at The Wheelock Place.

It’s a cosy spa center on the 4th level, once you get up from the escalator from the entrance, you’ll be able to spot it.

The treatment I got to try was the Advance Acne Solution(Medical Peel with Facial) 90mins at S$268.

It is most suited for those with active acne, where you will experience a medical peel and cooling mask to aid healing. However, for usual exfoliation, you may also try this out. I was advised by the therapist that I could do this once every 3 weeks to ensure a glowing, brighter complexion.

DIY Gua Sha Facial

Found this while I was searching on ways to slim down the face.
I kinda hate my fat face & even though we have botox for jaw reduction or radio frequency. This might just come in handy for those broke and still wanting to look fabulous without anything invasive!

Bella Skin Care Facial Review – My penny wise pound foolish tale

I never had a usual facial place and was always on the go, trying out new places to review. This time, I saw an advert on the Flowerpod forum and thought I gave Bell a try since my girlfriend had been raving about them too.

It states there ‘$18 for microdermabrasion for 1st-timers’.
And yes, don’t be fooled like I did.
You get only the microdermabrasion for $18 but you’ll need to pay for the facial.
Because the treatment alone would last less than 15minutes and it did not make much sense to do a diamond peel (aka microdermabrasion) without the proper facial routine.

So I was told by the beauty advisor that there were 2 types of facial offered at Bella.
The basic one was $68+ and the more intensive one was $98+; being that it included an extra mask and the cold compressor.

I was having a breakout at the time of visit and the pretty advisor went on about my dull and uneven complexion, my clogged pores and dry skin. I felt like the ugliest thing on earth and was coaxed into trying the $98+ facial and adding the $18 for the sonic peeling. As she said my skin condition was dry, the sonic peeling would be more appropriate than the microdermabrasion. Anyway, I made an appointment for the day after and the whole facial was surprisingly not bad.

FIrstly, I was asked to inhale something, I think it was some aromatherapy thingy before the whole facial started. Next, the therapist did the usuals for a facial. She cleansed my face and followed up with a scrub before she had the steaming machine infront of my face. I like having my pores steamed but the procedure is kinda uncomfortable as I found it difficult to breathe.

But anyway, it did help open up the pores and allowed extraction to be almost painless. The first time I did not even tear at all! Amazing!
And she did the hand parafin wax for me too.

I can’t remember the steps but I think the sonic peeling was done before the extraction. It’s similar to the diamond peel, I think they use the same machine.
After that, I topped up another $68+ for the ampoule. Oh yes, this one is like daylight robbery and I wonder why was I so dumb to allow that to happen. But I guess cuz my face was ‘rotting’ and I believed every single word she said about the ampoule.

After the extraction, there was the mask and then the cold iron compressor and another mask if I recall correctly. They also tidied up my brows for me so all in all, yes, it’s a pricey experience but I must admit that it was a pampering one too.
