MFP has kindly arranged for a pre-CNY facial for me at Astique Clinic by Dr. Matthew Yap.
Cold weather means flaky skin for the dehyrated skin. Hence, more hydration booster would be needed to keep the skin bouncy and radiant.
My last facial was also probably more than half a year ago, so why not!
Other than their in-house scrub, these were the products used that day – ESTHEMED, which are made in Korea. Well, we all know that Korea is the place for good skincare products!
I enjoy doing facial a lot because it is extremely comfortable, relaxing and at the same time, better skin. The benefits of this facial is to keep the face moisturized and dewy.
The first step is to remove all the makeup by cleansing and scrubbing the face. Scrubbing also remove dead skin cells from the surface, making sure that the skin is absorbing all the nutrients well.
Hydra B3 Spray was sprayed and massaged all over the face before the Hydra B5 Serum.
Following with the Hydra B6 Cream. Okay, I gotta admit, I had this thing for the cream and the masks that came after. They were too goooood! Read on to find out why.
I have read about the mask from Miyake and she commented that the masks actually work like fillers. YES, IT SURE DOES!.
The ASTIQUE Recovery Essence Mask improves elasticity and firmness of the skin, smoothens and softens skin texture, resulting in firmer and younger looking skin.
It locks in moisture, boosting skin cell regeneration and causing skin to glow from within.
The masks are also retailing at a box of 5 ($155). Definitely worth the money.
It is filled with essence. You can literally see it dripping. So instead of wasting the essence, the beautician rubbed a layer of the essence onto my face before placing the mask on.
Psst: I think I would apply it all over the arms and legs if I were home.
It was left on for a good 20 minutes.
No washing is needed after masking. You can massage the face gently until the essence is absorbed in – as recommended by the nurses/beauticians there 🙂
Take a look at the rest of the photos below at how dewy and bright my skin is! It only took me 60 minutes to see the results. I went out without foundation that day because I was so confident of how my skin was.
You know, whenever I go for facials, I was always told that my skin was rather dull. But not all places promised me results within a visit. But ASTIQUE proved me wrong, anything is possible.
Still rubbing all the good stuffs in….
Close up of the skin… Pictures don’t lie. Neither were they edited. It is as real as the mask and facial.
I was extremely happy with the overall results and this photo was taken right after the facial. Remember, no powder, only eyebrows and eyeliners were drawn.
Big hug for ASTIQUE!
