Beauty Salon in SG – Face Essensuals

I had problem skin and I had been through almost all the IPLs and Laser procedures that is available in town. each time I go to a dermatologist, I come out with a few hundred bucks lesser in my wallet.

imageIt was not until I was recommended by a colleague to make an appointment with Serina Leong, the sole proprietor of Face Essensuals. She is not a doctor but it was her personal determination to help me improve my skin condition that saved me the thousands that I could have spent on treatments and clinic fees.

I used to have very bad outbreaks that scars my face. For the longest time, I almost could not see my chin because of all the angry acnes and painful bumps on my T-zone. It was a real nightmare. So much so that I had to resort to makeup to cover up the scars.

Three months after I visit Face Essensuals,  I noticed visible improvement on my skin!  My outbreaks reduced and I was able to gradually narrow down to the contributing factors of the outbreaks. Another six months down I junked the dermatologist’s skincare products and started moving to something cheaper and off the shelf. A major regret I didnt manage to take any before and after photos then. It was just amazing!

It is usually not Serina’s style to recommend or suggest products to her clients unless she thinks that the products would work well for them. So from time to time I will have to ask her for recommendation of some of the new products that she carries.

Face Essensuals does not carry the common spa or skincare big brands such a Dermalogica or Decleor. Serina will change the product ranges in the salon if she finds that the products do not meet her clients’ skincare conditions. So far, Face Essensuals have had product ranges from France, Italy, Dubai (surprise!) etc and she never applies it on her clients if she has not tried it herself and be satisfied with it.

I have recommended friends to this salon and they have been with her since with wonderfully positive feedback. If you are in Singapore and wants to receive a no frills and no product peddling beauty salon, make an appointment with Face Essensuals. You will be happy with the service.

Senka – Hoshitsu Lotion (Moisturizing)

image

This is my new acquisiton after searching high and low for a lotion that could restore hydration to my skin. I may be living in a tropical country, but working in an airconditioned office environment is drying my skin. My skin condition suffers even more when I am overly busy with work and forgot to drink water!

Senka (专科) is one of the off the shelves skincare product by Shiseido catered to return hydration to the skin. Packed with double hyaluronic acid and Royal Jelly extract, this lotion is watery and does not give a sticky feeling after applying on the skin. Having tried Hada Labo myself, I definitely prefer this over Hada Labo for the after use feel and texture. Lotion absorbs quickly into skin and I even tried using it like a massage mask!

Using as Massage Mask
Put about a 50 cent coin size worth of lotion onto your hand after washing and drying your skin. Apply the lotion onto your skin generously and massage your face starting from your forehead (gently in circular motion) before gliding your fingers from your temples over the top of your cheeks to reach the bridge of your nose between your eyes. Gently run your fingers above your eye brows, down to your temples, over the top of the cheeks and end at the bridge of your nose. Glide your fingers on both sides of your nose to press a finger on each side of your nostrils for 3 seconds. Glide up between your eyes and press gently both side of the bridge between ur eyes for 3 seconds. Then move your fingers to press gently under the peaks of both the cheekbones for 3 seconds. Move the fingers to about 1 cm away from both corners of your mouth and press gently for 3 seconds before moving a finger to press under the center of the lower lip for the last 3 seconds. You can do this as many times as you like. Once u are done, gently pat the remaining lotion on your face avoiding the eyes. Tissue off lightly to remove any remnants of the lotion and go to sleep.

As I am using the Perfect Whip Foam (same product family) to cleanse my face, I can jump to use this lotion thereafter with or without toner. I have tried using this lotion with my Albion Skin Conditioner and I notice that my skin absorbs better than when it is without toner.
