I've decided to do something more to improve my face. If you missed out, go here. Today, I went to a beautician, highly recommend by a friend of mine. I've seen the before and after results after a few months of treatment had on his face and I gotta say, I'm sold.
So, I had an appointment set at 3pm today. My facial started as soon as I got there and believe it or not, it lasted 4.5 HOURS! Yes, 4.5 hours of lying on a comfortable bed, in a air-conditioned room and having your face massaged soothingly. Plenty of procedures went on, from washing, moisturizing, pimple extraction (this procedure probably killed 5 years off my life), toning etc etc...and lastly finishing off with a soothing and refreshing bamboo coal (or was it clay?) mask.
After some explanation from the owner of the place, my face is more suited for a purifying treatment, not dermabrasion, peeling etc etc...that will only cause zits to re-occur. I should also use only water-based products, shouldn't use any sun block and stay clear of any oil- based moisturizers...if I got that right. Felt kinda blur and woozy after lying around doing nothing for 4.5 hours. All in all, a good session. My face felt really clean, refreshed and smoother. My zits will probably be inflamed tomorrow, after the brutal extraction session. So, I was advised NOT to pick at them. *Note to self: Must wear baby gloves tomorrow* -_-"
Anyhow, I signed up for 10 facial sessions and bought 10 sets of amp-something (forgot what it was), which is used during each session and this entitles me to 50% discount for each facial session as well.
How much will all of this incur on my wallet?
10 sets amp + 10 facials (assuming RM 100 per session, it can vary) = RM 350 + RM 1000 =
1 set of sponge for facial session = RM 15
2 oil control cleansing gels = RM 100
1 oil control toner = RM 118
1 pure balance acne serum = RM 138
1 pure balance acne cream = RM 148
1 corrective cream for oily skin = RM 98
TOTAL COST = RM 1967
I only paid RM 1067, I will pay the other RM 900 when I go for the sessions. So I will be spending a bomb, all for better looks. Combine this with my recent car escapades and I'll probably be joining the destitute come next month.
Damnit...why must gay people be vanity personified?!?!?!
