Bella Skin Care

Friday, 19 April 2013


One of the most frequent question I get is, "Where do you go for facial?". To be honest, I haven't gone in > 8 months because the previous beautician didn't seem to be working her magic on me anymore. So imagine how thrilled I was to be invited for a facial session at Bella Skin Care in Jurong Point!

First Impressions
The moment I stepped into Bella Skin Care, all my senses seemed to have came alive yet calmed down at the same time. The lights were dimmed, the place smelled nice, it was soooo much quieter (what a difference a glass door made!), and I was very much at peace and starting to relax in preparation for my session.

I was greeted by a professionally dressed consultant, Pauline, who made me feel very at ease and welcomed!

After filling in some details, she ushered me into a private room to learn more about my skin condition and concerns. The concerns I shared with her were:

1) Dark eye circles
2) Blackheads
3) Some dark spots that seem to appear overnight (pigmentation)
4) A small scar I have on my right cheek

After hearing me out, Pauline recommended the Pure Blossom Therapy (promo price $98) for me as this treatment contains Co Enzyme Q10 + stable Vitamin C + Glycolic Acid!

I'm sure you girls keep seeing all these chemical names, know they are good for you and might know a little of what each does. Today, let me share with you what they actually do for your skin!

Co Enzyme Q10 is an excellent anti-oxidant which increases the energy production in cells and it helps to boost skin repair and regeneration!

We already know that Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidant for the skin, and with the combination of Glycolic Acid, this power combo helps to

- protect against UVA/UVB rays
- prevent premature aging & stimulates collagen production below the surface of the skin.

On the surface of the skin, Glycolic Acid sloughs off the rough outer skin layer, revealing youthful newer skin! And the stable Vitamin C formulation improves elasticity, tightens & detoxify the skin, and restores a firm, youthful & radiant complexion!

No wonder Pauline said if I go back monthly for the therapy, my scar will lighten over time! ^.^

Then it was time for the therapy! I was introduced to my therapist, Angie, who was very detailed and attentive. She would inform me of the next step before commencing and that's something I really appreciate as I feel we are the most vulnerable lying on the bed, almost naked, eyes closed, and not knowing what's going to happen next.

Step One
Angie started off the therapy by introducing me to breathe in the calming rose essential floral infusion oil specially used by Bella Skin Care to calm and relax. After a neck and shoulder massage, she removed my makeup and cleansed my face. With a clean face, she got started by steaming it.

One point worth noting - Angie actually applied lip balm for me before steaming my face which was so thoughtful!!! She must be psychic 'cause I'm someone who cannot live without lip balms so for 2 hours during facial without my lip balm, I feel pretty naked. And with the hot steam blowing at my face and being in an air-conditioned room, my lips get dry very quickly. Internally, I was nodding furiously with approval at this gesture 'cause no beautician has ever done this for me before!

Step Two
Then, Angie surprised me and proceeded to do a hand mask for me while I was steaming my face. INGENIOUS IDEA! Killing two birds with one stone! I don't only leave with better complexion, I leave with softer hands too! The lady (it must be) who thought of this idea really knows the female species very well haha.

Step Three
Time for extraction! The part I hate the most :( My therapist was very thorough and she left no room for ugliness on my face. Be gone blackheads! Goodbye tiny pimples!

Another point worth highlighting was that, after every single extraction, Angie put a cooling pad on the extracted area and the end result? NO REDNESS! I even went for dinner with Jasmine after that!

(Taken right after facial, no edit at all!)

Step Four
Ampoules are included in the Pure Blossom Therapy. Angie did a face massage for me after applying the ampoules for quicker absorption and she concentrated on my eyes' area hoping to reduce some of my scary dark circles. When she was done, we moved on to...

Step Five
...the last step, face mask! Hehehe this is my favourite part of facial 'cause there's no more fussing over my face and I don't have to be talk anymore, just rest, relax and SLEEP! What aided me to sleep better was the shoulder massage Angie did for me!! I'm a sucker for good shoulder massages but H gives lousy ones :( So anyway, the massage she gave me was firm and she kneaded all my tired parts, felt so much more refreshed after the session! May I also add - very, very, VERY good time usage of multi-tasking. I LIKE! :)))

In My Opinion
I was EXTREMELY impressed with Bella Skin Care's service and I couldn't stop raving about it to Jasmine throughout dinner, and then to H.
I'm sure what we girls are looking for is the same:

An experienced therapist who doesn't hard sell during the treatment.

Rest assured you'll be in good hands (pun intended) at Bella Skin because the beauticians have been there for at least 6 years (Angie) and the rest of them average around 10 years and above! As for the hard-selling part? That's the least of my worries because throughout my entire session, the most frequent sentences I heard were, "Are you feeling cold?", and "Just relax.". Wouldn't you like someone who takes care of your well-being above anything else? :)

And now, the after pictures!

I love natural pinkness on my cheeks! And and and, this is the first time my hair actually looks FINE after facial. I always bring a hairband with me because the beauticians always pull my hair back too tightly and I just look plain gross after that :(

One week after the session
Warning: I already look terrible barefaced and this is literally my out of bed look (still can see the sleep lines zzz). So please just focus on the condition of my skin hahaha.

My skin definitely feels more supple and rejuvenated! Lines and wrinkles are also softened after the therapy, plus I have a constant glow on my face! 
And here's one with makeup during my shoot for TIPPYJESS:

Applying make-up is a breeze and I think my skin looks more radiant!
