I’m pretty excited now and can’t wait to see result! Lightened pigmentation, less wrinkles!! Woohooo! But first thing first.. I always get lost in Orchard Central! Hence I need to locate Skin Shape Club first!

Actually, it wasn’t that bad… Just take the lift, turn left. go straight..

IMG_6501 IMG_6502 And ta-daaaa… See it at the far end??

IMG_6503It’s at a very cosy corner hence good for customer who like privacy!

If you drive, even better! Carpark lift is just next to it!

IMG_6504 IMG_6505 IMG_6508 IMG_6515

I booked my appointment on a weekday evening so that I can go relax after work!!

IMG_6510 IMG_6511

While waiting for my beauty consultant, I have no time to waste.. there are products on display where I can check it out!

FYI, these essence are actually their own brand/product..!

IMG_6509IMG_6506 IMG_6513

Audrey greeted me at the entrance and as there was another customer, I had to wait a while before she can attend to me (that’s why I have some waiting time to spare! LOL~).

Anyway, that’s beside the point. Shortly after, Audrey brought me to the consultation room to fill in a form and started my consultation!

IMG_6512

Audrey briefed me through the treatment process and showed me some before & after pictures of customers with acnes/pigment/wrinkle problems.. I’m impressed with how they actually treat acne problem in such short time..!

Through our conversation (and Audrey’s observation), she knows that I don’t sleep early (not that late too actually) and she told me that this treatment can actually lightened my dark eye circle.. Though dark eye circle wasn’t my main concern but it’s one of the problem I have too.. So out of curiosity, I probed some questions but struck me most is….

Me: “How many treatment would it takes to see result (lightened dark eye circle)?”

Her: “Immediate”

Me: O_O REALLY?! *secretly feeling happy*

NOW I AM EVEN MORE EXCITED~!

IMG_6516 IMG_6517

Although the Club is small but I think they played well with the space. After the consultation, I was asked to stand on this machine u see in the above image.

It’s a body analyzer. It measure your weight, body fat, body age, this machine is a monster!! >_<!!


SEE!!.. I’m actually a old woman in a young body!! (T_T) (machine printed copy wasn’t given to me but glad we have this lil profile card!)

IMG_6518

So here’s my treatment room. Pretty spacious. Understand from Audrey that this is usually the room they use for any body treatment (Yes, they do slimming too! But too bad, I’m not sponsored for that!)

I didn’t really change into anything special because there only a brown robe and feels funny to take off everything and wear a robe for facial. LOL!

IMG_6519

 

Now that I’m lying on the bed (warmer bed!!) I’m pretty nervous!! What machine would they be using for the Light & Heat Energy treatment!!! *shivers*

IMG_6843  IMG_6844 IMG_6845

Looks like a harmless thingy ya??

We started with a double cleanse then toner was applied on my face before we start using the LHE machine.

We started the treatment around my eye areas first (remember i have dark eye circle??) and despite several reminder about how BRIGHT it will be when the treatment (light pulse) starts, I still got a shock almost every time!! LOL!! It’s like somebody putting a touch light on your eyes and suddenly turn it on and off quickly twice – a super bright touch light that is… As for the heat part, it’s not scorching hot but you can still feel the pinch of heat on your face. Bearable for me.

 

(See that light!?!!)

I didn’t have to worry about anything during the treatment because The beautician here will be constantly telling me what we’re going through and prepare for next step.
Very soon, we’re at the last part of the LHE treatment whereby a consecutive 10 shots of light will be shot around your face. THIS IS BRIGHT TOO! When I open my eyes, all I can see is stars~ LOL..But just for the few seconds la..

AftER that will be serum and clay mask time – more like NAP TIME!! i napped for about 15-20 mins and the beautician is back to washed off my mask and applied skincare for me and she left me to get change.

Side note: I upgrade my session to SKIN SHAPER PLUS on my 2nd visit and I’m loving it!! The massage was so heavenly!!

NOW is best time to check out the result!! I quickly pull out the mirror and check out my skin! I’m speechless..

Let me show youuuu..

IMG_6848

Image on the left is before and on the right is obviously after! I took my own picture so pardon those unglam double chin and so not professional angle!!! (LOL!!)

I can see that not only my dark eye circle has lightened, my freckles seems to have lightened too in just one session! My overall complexion has brighten quite a bit and I look more radiance!!

I GLOW~! I have to hashtag #NOFILTER!!!

After 3 days, my skin still feels smooth! Applying makeup was easy and my makeup stays longer!

Skin Shaper Facial is a gentle yet result-oriented treatment that incorporate FDA-approved LHE technology into its treatment procedure. It is suitable for most skin types and skin tone. Those with very dark skin will have to be consulted before proceeding with treatment so that they can adjust the treatment procedures and settings according to your skin conditions / tone for safe and best results.

The possibility of complications is minimal. Slight redness may be observed immediately after treatment due to the dermal layer being warm up but this only lasts for a few hours. You can continue with your daily routine immediately after treatment.

After treatment, it is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and oily/alcohol based products for 48hours. Remember always to apply moisturizer and sunblock regularly..

Skin Shaper Facial is priced at $120 for 30mins. New customer can enjoy 4 sessions at trial price of $96 ($24/session).

Skin Shaper Plus Facial is priced at $160 for 60mins. New customer can enjoy 4 sessions at trial price of $128 ($32/session). Skin Shaper Plus include exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and serum-infused facial massage for better penetration and enhance treatment results!

I highly recommend you to try Skin Shaper Plus facial if you have time! Else Skin Shaper Facial works fine too!

The Skin Shaper Facial is definitely a quick fix for ladies who are always on the go! 30 mins to regain beauty! What more can you ask for!? Drop by during lunch or break, you don’t even have to worry about going back to office empty stomach!

Check out their member’s lounge!!

Shakura Pigmentation Treatment

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.

20121224-011326.jpg

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!

20121224-011346.jpg

Overall, i still think it was a pretty enjoyable treatment. Good thing is no hard selling occurs..

20121224-011448.jpg

Jennifer is our consultant by the way.. 🙂

& today…. i realise….. my iphone 5 cable…. is.. so fragile! 3rd party product indeed!

Phillip Wain Facial!

So happy that i made it to Phillip Wain facial that day (Monday), with my pretty mom!! Been trying to arrange one since the day we signed up for their 1-for-1 package!!!

We planned to do a 1.5hr facial but because i ended work late, we only mgt to be in time for the 1hr facial! aaaw… 😦 So what’s this 1hr facial about?? WHITENING!!!

*eye-wide*

This is one of their new treatment!

Ambience wise i think it is needless to say more..! Phillip Wain always makes me feels like a VIP! hahaha thanks to the exclusive-ness!! As for the facial, i think its really interesting. First time i go to a facial without needing to change into a robe. i mean those bare-shoulder robe.

When u enter into PW, first thing u need to do is is to change into their usual “bedroom” robe.. and after that, that’s all. You will be asked to lie one their facial bed. But of cuz they will pull open a bit so that it will be convenient for them to do the shoulder massage ltr.

So this one hours, what was done? Regular facial SOP! hahaha! remove makeup, cleanse, scrub, steam, extraction, face & shoulder massage, face mask & ending steps (toner, serum, moisturizer) Which step caught my “attention”? i would say is the scrub, the extraction & the massage!!!!

The scrub is without those microbeads and was leave on while the steamer steam my face~ was told that it has papaya extract .. or was it enzyme? haha! And the extraction, they use hands-only too~ at times will use the extraction tool la but still ok.. bearable pain!

The massage was another great enjoyment too.. but i think the lady kinda slack off towards the end.. cuz its only the first step she did it nicely and the repeated steps she’ll just brush over.. hmm.. but over all i think it’s still a good experience.

What amazed mi most is…… when i reach home, took my shower, i ACCIDENTALLY touched my face and.. WOW!! so smooth~!! hahaha my chin’s out break is like.. cured!! no more uneven texture! smooth! but old scare still visible thou.. hahaha!!

Until now i still feel good!! You can visit Phillip Wain Site to see more, just click HERE!! or can check out my previous post on Phllip Wain M6 tummy treatment HERE!

Mini Treats with Origins & Sampar

Ah haa.. how’s ya holiday!? This long weekend is a good one for mi! made arrangement to visit Phillip Wain, Origins & Sampar with my girlfriend.. Nice experience tho some things went “missing”.. =P

Our first stop!! Phillip Wain….

A very simple look before u enter Phillip Wain.. couldn’t take more pic when i head in cuz my mobile was in the locker.. our appointment was 11.30am & 12.00pm but somehow i don’t know why they only attend to us and changed our appointment to 12.00pm and 12.30pm. Are you thinking why we’re taking 2 time slots? cuz they have only 1 M6 Intergral LPG machine, so can only do it one at a time.. Oh did i mention? we were here because we have a VanityTrove treats.. Subscribe to July’s box and get a complimentary tummy tamer session worth S$110 for 30 minutes..

After we changed into their robe, we head str8 to the M6 treatment room.. My experience..? PAIN! hahaaa the suction was.. arggghh pain.. but it indeed made mi lost 2cm+ on my abdominal and waist!! WOW~!! my friend’s experience… ? PAIN as well~!! hahahhaha!!! but she lost some cm too..!

After our session, we are free to use the facilities there.. steam room.. gym room.. little cafe.. The beauty consultant who provide all the info to me was quite hard selling which i don like.. had told her i’m rushing for appointment yet she wants me to make a decision “now” to sign up for membership..  It’s not expensive till i’ll drop my pants.. but i just don like hard selling.. (and the lady did not give me this tissue!! LOL!! got this from my friend instead..) If you are interested in joining as member, visit HERE to find out more or HERE to apply your 1 day free exercise pass!

Membership is really not that expensive.. Depending which period u signed up.. Membership can cost as low as S$130 per month to S$180 per month.

S$130 – Phillip Wain 21st Anniversary Promo.

S$180 – One for One Promo (that means its S$180 for two month)

Best part, all classes are free of charge! as long as u have the time, u can just walk in to attend them, UNLIMITED.. Gym usage unlimited too..

BTW, they not only have exercise program, they also do facial and massage..! and for the MOST IMPORTANT point… this is a LADIES ONLY center! Feel privileged for being a woman!

By the time we ended our session, it’s almost…. 2.15pm.. see.. she’d been hard selling to me for soo long.. LOL! Anyway.. aft Phillip Wain treat, we headed to Origins at Centerpoint for our Mini Facial.

Origins counter is just at the entrance of Robinson.. easy to find..

This is the Plantscription series product that were newly launched.. With Vanity Trove treat, i got the chance to experience it.. but again, u can too.. Just give them a call to book your free mini facial now..! Visit HERE to find out more!!

How was mini facial conducted? Well, very openly.. but no worries, not much ppl will be bothered with what u’re doing.. hahaha!! 

These are the products that were used on my face.. i particularly like the face scrub.. it really smoothen my skin LOTS~ i think this is a great product!! and i like the sunblock too.. it brighten ur complexion and has this sweet citrus scent..

But one thing keeps bothering me.. i thot by showing them the VT card, i’ll get my one day supply of Plantscription anti-aging duo?? but i did not get anything… hmm.. 😦

So i called up (while writing this blog) and Angie who did facial for me was kind enuff to keep one for me (it’s actually a eye cream if im not wrong..).

After our mini facial, we went looking for SAMPAR.. it’s a little counter that will often be overlooked i think.. Again.. i thot she will do a 1 minute quick fix treatment for me but turns out, her first reaction was only to open the cardboard and pass mi the mini glamour shots eye. Also, i brought all 3 samples that i got from Vanity Trove and wanted to check out more about it (like how to use, how to better enhance the effect, etc) but her explanation really makes me goes like.. “y do u need a promoter here? might as well put one poster size instruction manual by your counter, it works equally good..”

“for this XXX, u use after u wash ur face..” – After i wash my face, i use many other product know.. toner.. moisturizer.. eye cream.. serum.. blah blah blah.. so XXX is to replace which step or bef/aft which step.. sigh..

You think i can’t read? at least educate your user what your products are all about & what it acts as (ie: mask? serum? primer?)  Kinda sad with the service attitude. Probably will not patronised again..

At the end of our treats day, we went shopping and eating beautifully!!! Yeah…!
