No, this is definitely not a Lady Gaga makeup tutorial.
And it is not some outlandish beauty treatment either.
In fact, I’m having a skin workout! Read on to find out!
A week ago, I was invited by Mary Chia to try out their services and I was given the following voucher.
They are super generous I tell you.
I’m certain that most of you have heard of Mary Chia.
For our foreign Honeyz Belles who haven’t, here’s a brief about Mary Chia.
Mary Chia is a homegrown and leading beauty and wellness spa brand that has 30 years of beauty and wellness expertise, with 10 outlets in Singapore and seven outlets in Malaysia.
Believe it or not, the doyenne of Mary Chia, Mary Chia started out as a wedding gown seamstress and only ventured into the beauty industry when her clients requested for make up services too.
Today, Mary Chia provides a comprehensive range of lifestyle and wellness services.
Some of her signature treatments includes: Invigorating Cellulite Buster, Crystalite Face Rejuvenation, Diamond Face Sparkler, Ginger Infusion Exfoliating Scrub, just to name a few.
I was greeted by Jasmin – the Corporate Account Relations Manager of Mary Chia, who also helped me with the organization of ‘Vacation in a Spa‘. *extremely grateful*
The ultra-retro corridor that oozes contemporary style: everything was orange, fresh and gorgeous.
Glistening glitters could be spotted everywhere in the salon.
Wait for it…
Our stuff are also secured by fingerprint locks!
Then I was introduced to the massage room where party guests of ‘Vacation in a Spa’ would get to enjoy free massages and paraffin hand treatments.
Next, I was brought to my room where I’ll get to enjoy the beauty treatments.
The signature Mary Chia towels.
All ready to indulge in my 2 hour beauty treatment!
Before the treatment, I was given a skin analysis by Mary Chia’s beauty consultant, Crystal. This is to ensure that the products and services chosen are suitable for my skin type and condition.
After the analysis, Crystal concluded that even though the nature of my skin is oily, it is still deficient in water and this can lead to wrinkles. She decided that a a Collagen Lifting Facial and an eye repair treatment will be ideal to revive my tired and dehydrated skin.
So I lied on the comfortable massage bed as Mary Chia beauty therapist , L, awakened my skin with a nice face and scalp massage.
The massage was very relaxing and soothing.
I could feel the accumulated tension slowly leaving my body and mind.
Alright and the treatment begins proper.
This is my totally bare naked face.
Next, I was treated with soothing and cold crystal balls that massaged and calmed my ‘traumatized’ skin (trauma from the extractions earlier).
This treatment helped to promote blood circulation and close up the enlarged pores from the steaming.
Then L proceeded to massage the area around my eyes to reduce puffiness.
Yup, my eye repair treatment has began.
After tweezing my eyebrows, L patted a few masks on my face.
As I waited for my mask to dry, L gave me a another firm scalp massage.
L pummeled my tense shoulders one last time before she ended the facial treatment.
RXP is dubbed the first pain-free light-based therapy that clears up acne and removes unwanted hair. It requires no pre-treatment procedures, numbing or treatment down-time. It sounds like Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment except it is painless.
However, I was shocked the first time I used it as the machine sucked my skin lightly before blasting the light energy.
Here’s the wonder maker…
According to the therapist, the machine will remove unsightly hair and whiten the underarms. Results may not be immediate though.
I’ve done similar treatments before so my underarms are free of hair. Though I still look forward to fairer underarms. 😛
After the treatment, I was served a cup of fresh-brewed ginger tea to detoxify and warm my body. It can get quite chilly in the massage rooms.
By the way, ginger is great for the body, especially the stomach. It eases digestion and calms an upset stomach pronto.
Just when I thought my beauty treatment had come to an end, Crystal presented me a bottle of Age-Defying Hydrating Lotion, a popular product from their house brand.
Now my skin is truly on a path to perfection…
