Last July, I had my first facial cleaning at Flawless in SM Pampanga. I enjoyed the experience as I felt relaxed after a tiring day. I raved about it and shared it to my friend, Nikki. Since she wanted to experience it as well, we set a date to have a facial cleaning at Flawless in Marquee Mall Angeles, City.
It was my birthday when we visited the clinic. I asked if there was any promotion for birthday celebrators and I was surprised to be told there is! I got to get a 50% off of all their services except for the Power Peel.
With that perk, I had their most expensive facial which costs 880 pesos and body scrub at 2000 pesos. I also had a hair wax on my underarm. Talking about getting advantage of the special day, huh? LOL
Okay, so here's the experience. While I was grateful with the big discount, I wasn't satisfied with the services. Let me itemize them for you.
Facial Cleaning - The facial massage was great but the pricking of blackheads and pimples hurt so much! The tool used was so thin/slim I think that the ends really hurt skin. I've had enough facial in my life (there was even a time I had to go to my dermatologist's clinic every 2 weeks for 3 months just to have a facial cleaning to know what hurts and not). Even Nikki told me hers hurt as well. (Nikki and I share the same dermatologist, Dra. Beatrice Canga-Pineda of BCP Clinic in Dau, Mabalacat, Pampanga).
Body Scrub with Bleach - While I like the scrub and wrap used which I believe complemented my super sensitive skin, I hate the ambiance and the shower head. It was very inconvenient that when you wash off the scrub and wrap, your hair gets wet even if it was wrap in a shower cap (not plastic but looks like a paper was used!). The ambiance is not relaxing. Lights are too bright and temperature is cold. I would prefer yellow light over fluorescent bulbs to use to add a peaceful mood as well as adding scented candles and music to put the client's mind at sleep.
Hair wax - Not all hair were removed and it left a chicken skin.
