I Got My Very First Facial Experience and Here's What Happened

I have an oily and acne-prone skin so I'm always on the lookout for what skincare routine suits me best. One of the options would be doing a facial but haven't tried before because, as what I've heard from almost everyone, it's painful.

But because in this day and age, tiis-ganda is life, I have to do it to take good care of my skin. And there, I had my very first facial experience at Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic.

When I entered their clinic, I was amused at their chic, cozy, homey and welcoming interior. I felt at ease already and that's when I knew I was in good hands. 

Okay, so let's talk about the treatment. First, they cleansed my face and massaged it for minutes. They then left me and have my face steamed to open my pores for the real deal here—extracting the blackheads and whiteheads.

That's when the pain started. It hurts while pricking, squeezing and extracting the blackheads and whiteheads. But the pain is bearable and I didn't cry. Okay, I'm telling you this because most people I know who are facial regulars said the process will make you cry. Perhaps, Ate Jen, who did my facial have gentle and light hands.

Part of the treatment also was the Diamond Peel and 24 Karat Gold Mask. For the diamond peel, the treatment will deeply cleanse and exfoliate your skin. This is pain-free! 

And my most favorite part of the whole facial experience was the 24K gold mask! I felt so relaxed the whole time, during and after the mask experience.

The results won't show yet after the first session but trust me, after the whole process this day, I felt like I have a smooth skin and all the dirt from years were gone.

So will I come back at Skin House? Definitely!

You may visit them at 2/F 8006 Pioneer Centre, Corner United St., Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig. They also have a branch at Quezon City.

    1. Oh that's great! What a relaxing feeling after, right? :)

  5. Looks very pleasant! Nice ♥

  6. This was a really interesting read! I never thought about the pain with removing blackheads and whiteheads, so I am grateful that you mentioned it. That way, if I ever get something done...I'll be prepared!

    1. Yes! I saw videos of removing blackheads and whiteheads online. They already look painful but it all depends on who is doing it to you. Glad Skin House trained their staff well :)

  7. I have a friend in Manila who I think, did mentioned about this place when we were talking about each other's skin condition. I hope she gets to go here and experience everything just like you did :)

    1. Wow! That's cool. And I really hope she did. too. Skin House offers great services and definitely will take care of you :)

  8. This place looks like they can take care of our skin properly :-)

  9. Thanks a lot :D

    ohn, this is so cool :D
