Good day to you!
Today I’m gona back date some post that was loooong overdue!
Have you heard of Shakura? Not Sakura ya! It’s S-H-A-K-U-R-A.. I have not heard about them until one day i bought a free deal at some deal site. Its been very challenging to find related reviews about it before i head for my first facial treatment. I believe Shakura originated from Malaysia?? why i say so? B’cuz most reviews i found are by bloggers living in Malaysia!
Those reviews i saw are mostly about their super hard selling tactic and can be quite aggressive. Made me a little 怕怕 (scared). But (un)fortunately my appt was 7pm (almost the last one) and by then i was too tired to smile and make conversation. They didn’t bother to hard sell and we ended the facial treatment swiftly! (They might think that i’m not interested at all)
Actually the facial treatment was quite ok! The mask has this light floral scent, the face (milk) massage was good, the extraction was done with hands (not extraction tools).
So i decided to bring my mom to try out this facial treatment. After 1.5hrs of treatment, she came out with a smile and think its quite good too.
We sat in the consultation room listening to our consultant “hard selling” to us. i can’t recall the initial price she quote but i know it was a very WOW price that i almost wanted to leave immediately.
Then later, as she goes further….. she offered us a couple package which includes 10 + 10 treatments and 2 + 2 eye/neck treatment.. & guess how much?!?
1st clue.. 4 digits!
2nd clue.. ask me and i’ll tell u!
Mom & I were pretty tempted to try so we decided to split the cost and make payment via installment!
Overall, i still think it was a pretty enjoyable treatment. Good thing is no hard selling occurs..
Jennifer is our consultant by the way.. 🙂
& today…. i realise….. my iphone 5 cable…. is.. so fragile! 3rd party product indeed!
I came across your blog by searching on the shakura products. Could you please tell me how much is the nice package you got (in picture not including their services)? My friend is going back to Singapore for the summer soon. If it’s not too expensive, I’d like her to get it for me. By the way, I live in USA. Thank you so much!!!
Hi Bui, thanks for reading!! ^__^ I did not get any products from Shakura but my mom did! She bought the whitening serum at about S$80! I did not asked her about the effect but since she did not complain I assume it’s good, or least not bad! Hee~ they did recommend the ampoules if we want to see faster result but they are quite ex (S$100++ per ampoule).. All in all, no matter which product you plan to get, rmb to replenish you skin moisture! Whitening products tends to make your skin dry.. 🙂 & you need a hydrated skin for whitening product to take its effect too!
Would like to know hows the result of your treatment at shakura? I just signed up today. I didnt feel that they were hardselling as i feel that i really need to start and take this one level up to get a better looking skin. Hopefully it will work for me as it is a bit ex even if we’re paying by installment. Thanks!
Hey Rousy! How’s your day? So far I’ve utilized about 4-5 sessions of my package and to be honest, I did not see much improvement. Probably because I didn’t “upgrade” my package when they were trying to sell it to me. I told them to stick to what I’ve signed up and don’t attempt to up sell me anything. However my consultant, Jennifer, was kind enough to upgrade one or two session (to spot remover on a few of my BIGGER freckles) on complimentary for me.. Do note to book appointment with the beauty consultant who you’re comfortable with. My last session with a new beautician was pretty hasty & the techniques were rather superficial. I didn’t enjoyed at all. Before I can fall asleep, the facial is done. (Maybe the hard-sell part will comes later after a few session of facial, telling you that u need to upgrade to see improvement. It’s all up to you.. 🙂 )
