As a woman, you need to take care of your physical appearance no matter how busy you are. Besides telling this to my readers, I also try to remind myself regarding this fact because busy seems to be the number 1 excuse why we neglect our skin.

So I decided to hop over to CRES Wellness, The Gardens Mall to give myself and my skin a break. I chose this branch because it is more spacious and I can shop around before my appointment (hehe girls being girls). The clean and cozy environment makes me feel welcomed.

This time, I tried their Plotox Micro Facelift Facial Treatment that uses nanotechnology and biological liposome encapsulating technology to combine the anti-aging factor “Green Peptides” and whitening factor “AHAS”. The ingredients are able to penetrate quickly into deep skin cells to provide nutrition to the cell when combined with their unique massage technique.

My beautician was very attentive to my needs and kept checking on me whether I felt cold or not, whether I can feel the cool face steamer or not and alerted me before she put anything that is hotter or colder than the room temperature.

The purpose of this facial is to increase the production of collagen and elastic fibers to achieve full, dewy, white and young skin. After the double cleansing, my beautician used Bio-mask, their signature mask that doubles up as a scrub with fresh pineapple scent.

Then, she applied softening lotion to soften up the blackheads and turned on the cold steamer for 5 minutes to prepare my skin for extraction. The extraction process was a little painful but worth it. No pain, no gain!

Since the skin is clean now, it’s time to apply all the awesome products for best effect. My beautician applied these products according to sequence onto my face.

After doing Plotox on my right face, my beautician showed me the result and asked me to compare with my left face. The result was amazing! My under eye is less dark compared to the left side and the most noticeable effect is a fairer, firmer and V-shaped right face! Left face was chubbier!

Sorry for showing my ugly pores T_T I had to show it to prove the effect. That’s what a credible blogger should do right? As you can see from my photos, the pore size on my right face is not as deep as the pores on my left face after receiving Plotox treatment.
