Here’s a quick one on my first visit to Estetica Beauty Salon (Plaza Sing outlet) to try the customized facial treatment~! Especially for those that often have this debate with themselves over:“Do we really need to go beauty salons for facials or just having home facial is enough?”
No doubt doing facial at home is a cost-saving and convenient option that most chooses. But visiting a beauty salon now and then reaps it’s benefits as well. Ironically, I was never one that would have visit a beauty salon due to the extravagant cost that I always deem as redundant. Jeez!
Surprisingly, after the consultation with the beauty expert it kinda changed my thinking.
There’s actually quite a number of things you can’t do at home compared to a beauty salon. From getting your face fully cleanse like freeing your clogged and dirty pores caused by prolong makeup application and the environment we are exposed to everyday to full extraction by professionals.
Upon arriving I was greeted by the posh interior filled with bottles neatly displayed at different counters, later brought into the consultation room.
One thing about the customized facial treatment is that they used a Skin analysis Machine and did a “scan” on different parts of your skin area. So everything about your skin will be revealed including your skin elasticity, skin texture, oil sebum, pigmentation etc.
The problem she noticed for me was that my skin looks very tired and the rest seems okay, so she recommended that I hydrate my face everyday and start putting sunblock to prevent skin pigmentation!
So the whole treatment begins after the consultation~~
She first trimmed my eyebrows followed by a facial steam session to open up my pores to search for blackheads and whiteheads to be removed. Fell into beauty sleep not long after she started applying the necessaries, essence and the customized face mask. You can view the whole process in the video.
Have been using their products ever since my treatment till now and it’s been for almost a month?
Tbh, I was skeptical on using their products at first as I have a skincare brand that I stick to, but after trying on their products for a month I really like it and I might stick to it as long as my wallet allows me to hahahahaha
I can say I really like how gentle their products are on my skin and here’s a quick and honest review (in pink) on each of them.
Here are the products and descriptions, my verdict will be the one in pink 🙂
1. Ultra-Hydralusol Serum – Triple hyaluronic acid action to lock in, preserve and replenish moisture into the skin, keeping the skin bouncy and supple from inside out.
This is my favorite product among all and this have to be applied during the night after the Skin Calming Lotion Essence. Skin instantly felt hydrated and smoother, love how rich it is since it’s supposed to be for the night! Your body and skin rejuvenates during the night and it’s important to have a rich supplement to complement it, so this really works for me. My skin really felt less dry after I used this lor!!! I’ve really dry skin especially I work in air-cond area for long hours.
2. Skin Calming Lotion Essence – A skin booster with anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and calm reactive skin. It multiplies the efficiency of your skincare regime and deeply hydrates for a soft, dewy finish.
I apply this essence before I put the serum or cream so as to prep my skin for the next step and to maximize the benefits the next product I put on has. Hm, some sort of like a toner I can say.
3. Anti- Stress Hydra Cream – Specially formulated to soothe and repair hypersensitive, fragile skin. Provides optimal moisturizing and repairing benefits for dry, dehydrated skin.
This is my second favorite and I apply this every day before I put on my make up and head out! This acts as a good moisturizer for me
4. Exfoliating Scrub – Removes dead skin cells with moisturizing effect. Skin will not feel dry and tight after exfoliation. Reveals skin’s natural glow. Using exfoliating beads made from natural sources, which are bio-degradable and environmental-friendly.
I used this only once a week as too much exfoliation for my skin will tend to make it feel dry so once a week is enough (for me)! Most of my dead skin came off and skin felt smooth after~~ weeehehee
5. Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Mousse – Dense mousse made up of tiny bubbles that can deeply penetrate the pores to remove dirt, sebum and impurities.
My everyday and night routine will be inclusive of this to prep the skin before applying the serum, essence or cream.
To make it easier for you, here’s a break down on my day and night routine
Day: Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Mousse > Skin Calming Lotion Essence >Anti- Stress Hydra Cream
Night: Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Mousse > Skin Calming Lotion Essence > Ultra-Hydralusol Serum
Here’s my take on their products and you can try it out for yourself, however do remember to consult your beauty expert for advice ok. You will need to see what type of skin you have, oily or dry and find the suitable one for you. I’ve a combination of oily and dry skin and the products above works for me.
