La Belle Skin Threatens To Sue Me Over Bad Review

I’m not sure which is more infuriating; a brazilian waxing session which left my panties stuck to my lady bits or being threatened with a lawsuit by the very same company responsible for that bad waxing experience.

Yes, I’m referring to the blog review I’d written about La Belle Skin after purchasing their deal via Deal.com.sg. Apart from the dissatisfactory waxing service, it turns out I wasn’t the only one who did not know about the hidden charge where you had to pay for feminine wipes. S$3 for a sheet of feminine wipe was pretty much daylight robbery but 2 of my readers had to pay S$10 and S$12 respectively. Why were the charges for the wipes varied? Shouldn’t there be a standard price?

After reading what the others had to say about their brazilian waxing experience at La Belle Skin, it seems that I wasn’t the only one who had left the place feeling upset and disappointed.

All-out censorship isn’t the way to maintain a company’s reputation. My review was based on my HONEST and PERSONAL OPINION! And ironically, I’m the PAYING CUSTOMER who was not satisfied with the service but instead of finding out why, they’d rather silence me with such BULLY TACTICS. What credibility do I have left as a beauty blogger if I allow companies like La Belle Skin to shut me up whenever I write a review that doesn’t sit well with them?

Anyway, this was the email which I’d received from someone in the company called Wind who didn’t even have the courtesy to sign off.

Honestly, I’m not sure if I should be pissed off by their audacity to come up with such a letter, or be amused by the atrocious English.

With more and more companies headed towards a customer-centric culture, it is unfathomable why La Belle Skin would rather waste time issuing threats, when they should be focusing on improving their service. Then perhaps, there would be good reviews written instead. I mean, no company is perfect, even the best companies are also susceptible to bad reviews but at least they take it as a learning opportunity and work on improving customer satisfaction. This email I’ve received speaks volume of the company as one that would rather sweep bad reviews under the carpet than to do something about it.

Oh and by the way, my name is spelt ‘Charlotte’ and not ‘Charllotte’. Please get your legal counsel to take note of the correct spelling.

 

[Review] $18 Brazilian Waxing At La Belle Skin via Deal.com.sg

Ever since my pampering previous de-fuzzing experience at Love De Beauteous, I felt that I should give waxing another go. However, I was on a tight budget and thus, returning to Love De Beauteous or even going to Strip was out of the question. So what’s a broke girl gonna do? I turned to Deal.com.sg in search of a bargain. And there it was, at the top of the search results. S$18 for Brazilian waxing.

I don’t usually buy services from Deal.com.sg, because you can’t expect much customer service and there are the possibilities of hidden charges too.  The last time I did, it ended up in a bad experience at Bella Luna Spa. So you could probably tell that I was really on that tight a budget to actually think it was a good idea to buy a brazilian waxing deal online. But with Asher’s birthday party coming up and having just blew a few hundred bucks on his present alone, I was as broke as hell. Continue reading

[Review] Pink Brazilian Waxing at Love de Beauteous

Temperatures have been rising lately and you might be tempted to spend the day soaking away in cool waters. But won’t it be a downer if you had unsightly hair poking out of your bikini bottom? How embarrassing! That’s why you should pay some attention to grooming the area down south.

So what is Brazilian waxing? It is the removal of all hair in the pelvic area, front and back, while sometimes leaving a thin strip of hair on the mons pubis. However, most ladies I know prefer it all off.

I survived my first Brazilian waxing!

I was really anxious about this appointment and of all times, I had to schedule it one day prior to my expected menses due date. You know how they say your skin down south is more sensitive just before your period and you should always schedule your Brazilian waxing appointment the week after that. Oh well, what’s done is done so off I went to Holland Village’s branch.

So what was I doing there and after SO MANY YEARS OF CONTEMPLATION, what was I thinking? Fancy making an appointment for something I feared so much off…

Now in conjunction with PETA’s Anti Fur Movement, Strip is holding an UNFURGIVABLE ANTI FUR Campaign. This is all for a good cause! With every Brazilian wax done from now till 31st December, Strip donates S$1 to PETA. The animal fur industry is a cruel and bloody one. So let’s do our part to assist People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), you can go to their WEBSITE to make a donation or do more.
