What I really love about this one in particular is.... it's super close to home ;)
Appearances One Stop Boutique Spa at Kota Damansara, PJ.
True to its name - it's a ONE STOP SPA BOUTIQUE that offers every single kind of beauty services you can think about - from the usual facial and hair wash to yes, non-surgical procedures like lip fillers, etc!
I went through 3 beauty treatments - beginning with a skin firming facial.
The ambience of the facial treatment room was relaxing.
Getting those zits and whiteheads popped, ouch!!
Beautician applying a collagen-firming-cooling gel to my skin.
And with the help of a machine, rubs the gel into my skin for deep-skin penetration.
The machine thingy sends out a poky-like vibration, very similar to the process of skin-lazer
(don't worry, this is NOT at all a skin laser procedure!)
The right side of my face is covered in gel and the left side is not, by purpose.
After rubbing off the gel on the right side of my face, the beautician asked me if I can see the difference between the two sides and as much as I hate to admit it, I could.
The right side was smoother, seriously firmed and slightly fairer. I kid you not. I don't know how they do what they do but it was seriously awesome.
Anyway, this is me after the treatment was done on the entire face =)
After facial, I received my next treatment in the form of a Jacuzzi followed by an hour long of full body massage using ginger scented oil for extra relaxation and to ease away muscle knots! =)
Le Jacuzzi all to myself!
Because I'm using a Samsung S5, I CAN go into the water with my phone without worrying about it falling into the water, ha ha!
After 20mins in the Jacuzzi and an hour long massage, I received my 3rd and final treatment which I was initially quite reluctant to do (I'll tell you why in a bit!) - Eyelash Extensions!
I have done eyelash extensions a few times in the past and every single time I have the extensions removed, a lot of my real eyelash will come out together with it =(
Hence, I was reluctant to do this treatment initially but after learning how it's done differently in this beauty parlour, I went ahead with the treatment.
Eyelash extensions typically lasts up to a month and can lasts up to two months if you go back for a touch up. The problem with other places that offer eyelash extension services is that they'll stick the ONE fake lash to THREE real lashes of yours, which will cause the real lash to get all tangled and messed up with the glue and eventually fall off together with the fake lash.
For this beauty parlour, they stick ONE fake lash to ONE real lash so that the outcome will be neater and will reduce the chances of your real lash falling off.
As a result?
And.. this is how it looks like after 3 weeks WITHOUT any touch up done to it yet..
The eyelash extensions procedure takes about 2 hours and theres absolutely no pain involved whatsoever!
After the procedure, this are the do's and don'ts... well, mostly don'ts.
1. DONT put any eye make up - although eye shadow is fine but I still dont recommend it. Eyeliner at the lower lids is fine. STRICTLY NO MASCARA or eyelash curlers.
2. DONT rub your eyes for very obvious reasons duhh!
3. TRY NOT to wet the eyelashes - it's advisable that you sponge your face instead of washing it under running water or splashing water on it.
(this is the one rule I can't follow so I end up washing my entire face under the running shower but after shower, I place a sheet of tissue under my eyelids and blinked a few times until water disappears from the lashes and absorbed in to the tissue).
4. If you find the extensions messed up after shower, use the lash comb (like the mascara comb but WITHOUT mascara) and come the lashes - get this right - comb ONLY the top part of the lash (unlike how you usually apply mascara) from inside out.
Go on.. if you have never tried eyelash extensions, you really should give it a try once and get those lush lashes and sexy eyes you've always wanted. First time trial costs RM99 only.
