♫ Jason Mraz - I Won't Give Up
Would you believe me if I told you I'd never done a facial session before in my entire life? Well, it's true! Even some of my friends who are guys go for facials once every couple of months, so imagine my
Anyway, I was really excited to get the opportunity to try out my first ever facial pampering session when the awesome folks at CellAct kindly invited me over to their salon to try out their customized facial session. :)
The salon at Taman Connaught was easily recognizable among the row of shophouses, thanks to its pristine teal-and-white facade as well as the large bank right next to it. The inside of the salon was cool and clean, with comfortable sofas and chairs in the modest lounge/reception area for patrons to sit. Once inside, I was invited by Kelly, the manager, to remove my shoes and place them in a discreet little shoe cupboard, and given a pair of slippers to wear in the salon.
|Super love the cool purple LED light decor :D|
|Cozy little corner for consultation and skin analysis|
|High chairs, long mirror and hairdryer for those who require a little touching up before going out the door. ;)|
After the consultation, I was led to one of the treatment rooms and given a robe to change into. After that, Jen came in with the items for start the facial, and the light was dimmed so that the room looked warm and cozy, perfect to make patrons comfortable and relaxed. There was also soft music playing in the background too, so it's very easy to just relax and fall asleep. ^^;;

In the photo collage above, the first pic is the soothing mask after blackhead removal (20mins), then the moisturizing mask treatment, which is left on for about 20 minutes. Excess product is then gently wiped off with a damp cloth, followed by a layer of lotion which is gently massaged into the skin. Next, a second layer of the same lotion is applied and left on for another 20 minutes. Finally, the mask is wiped off again, and toner is applied to lock in the healthy nutrients and moisture of the masks.

Okay, I know what you're waiting for is the results (before/after) pics, so here it is...

But after the facial, I felt so much more rejuvenated, and I daresay look fresher as well! I noticed that my skin looked noticeably brighter, felt much more moisturized, blackheads are gone (I just have to keep repeating this because it's totally miraculous to me), pores are tightened, eyes are less puffy and dark circles are greatly reduced!
|Can't leave without a photo with my lovely therapist for the day, Jen. :D|
They are currently having a RM38 first trial promo for new customers, so you can try out this awesome facial session for yourself! :D
P/S: Tell them you read about it from Laura's blog! Who knows, they might give you a little extra something? ;)
