"The beauty of your face and physical outlook is the mirror of your heart"
Sometimes this quote is untrue. Why? With today's level of pollution, bad genes and stress one needs a back up to remain beautiful. Facial is a popular de-stressing option.
So when I was given an invitation to try Bioessence Beauty Break Time I immediately grabbed the opportunity to have a relaxing beauty facial.
Bioessence Beauty break time is very timely because Facial rejuvenation can effectively reduce wrinkles, treat sun spots, tighten loose skin, improve skin tone and color, remove blotchiness, plus it eliminates damaged blood vessels.
Imagine for only Php 350.00 you will received 30 minutes of facial pampering. That includes cleansing, steam, extraction of blackheads, Vitamin C Cream plus a back massage! Grab this opportunity to have the most relaxing BB (beauty break) ever!
The first thing I noticed when I entered Bioessence is the welcoming smile of the staff, the refreshing smell of peppermint essential oil and the beautiful ceiling lights. Did you noticed how I almost always insert beautiful lamps and lighting pictures on my posts? Ha ha ha! I'm such a sucker for beautiful lamps everywhere I go.
Bioessence offers a wide array of medicines that caters to every skin type. For me it`s always more pampering to have someone do the facial for you. Plus a facial increases your face value in the workplace.

You'll feel instantly at home at Bioessence. If you happened to come early for your appointment, they have a television at the second floor to entertain you. Plus the latest issue of magazines and newspapers.
A facial basically involves cleaning the face, extracting pesky blackheads and whiteheads, treating pimples, and closing the pores with a laser treatment.
The very relaxing ambiance at Bioessence and the very light hands of the one doing my facial made me doze to dreamlandia. Yes! Facial need not be painful. Facial at Bioessence almost always has a tranquilizer effect on me unlike in other salons where I end up crying. I've been to so many dermatologists and facial salons in Metro Manila and in our province and Bioessence is one of the few facial salons that really left a good impression on me. I really really love Bioessence Facial.
After the esthetician ushered me to the room and asked me to lie down, she started cleaning my face with a cotton pads or was that a sponge? and applied a product she chose for my skin type. She then covered my eyes and take a good look at my skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp that reveals various skin conditions. She then began exfoliation using a mechanical exfoliant. Mechanical exfoliation has a gritty texture while a steam vapor is directed at my face. Then she did an extraction. Note: Please be warned though, that an extraction can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done on sensitive skin, or done improperly. People have different pain tolerance for extractions. Extraction can be uncomfortable, especially on thin or ruddy skin. A professional esthetician would ask you whether you like to have an extraction or not. So kindly give them a reply when they ask you.
Then she began facial massage using classic strokes like effleurage that relaxes and stimulate my skin and facial muscles at the same time. That is when I doze off to dreamlandia. He he he.
A facial mask is targeted to your skin condition and type whether dry, oily, combination, sensitive or mature. During the facial, the esthetician should stay with you in the room and give you a scalp massage or some other services. I know for a fact that they apply toners and protective creams as a final touch. But I was busy dreaming that I never felt the final touches.
She showed me what she excavated from my face after I woke up- a gazillion whiteheads. Yucks! Ha ha ha!
Anj told me that Bioessence have a Mother's Day promo that will only cost you Php 740 only. Inclusive of a cute tote bag plus a gift certificate for Facial pampering for one (1) full hour plus a special soap and facial milk cleanser. Available until May 31, 2012.
Whoa! This is such a steal because ordinarily a basic facial itself will cost you P600 plus the facial milk cleanser will cost Php 240 and the special soap Php 150 equals Php 990. That is a whooping Php 250 discount. Panalo!
