Luminox Detox Energie Care Treatment by GLOMAX Aesthetics

[Sponsored Review] 

Note that even though this is a sponsored post, it is also a non obligatory post! Hence I have the right not to write about it. BUT I'm still gonna write about it after seeing a slight improvement. 

Few weeks ago, I received an email from Hazel asking if I would like to try out one of the skin treatments from GLOMAX Aesthetics which is highly raved for their superb results at their outlet in Soho2. 

"I. Need. This." I thought to myself. After all it's gonna be the right time for me to have radiant skin on Hari Raya, right? I need to look good. Besides, the last time I had facial was last year.

Let me tell you something. I have a very bad under eye circles. If you can't tell from the photos that I've posted on all my social media platforms all these while, that's because I conceal it la! And that also means, the concealer I use is good! Which also means, I hide them damn well. Muahahaha. Eh sorry, I side tracked a bit. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is... Why would I wanna show everyone my panda eyes rightttt? So hideous! I look like a druggie. Pfft. 

Apart from my hideous dark under eyes, I also have a very dull skin and uneven skin tone. Yikes! Sorry future husband, you gotta deal with this face everyday. 

Made my way down to Clark Quay for my treatment after setting an appointment with Hazel. Locating the place was very easy! Once you stepped out of the lift, turn right, and you will see this long hall way. Find the unit number, press the door bell and a staff would happily greet you. For a moment I thought I was visiting someone's house. Haa. 

We started off with a skin consultation for maximum skin benefits and also to ensure that they recommend me an ideal facial based on my skin condition

The skin consultation was done by San (hopefully I spelt her name correctly!) I was surprised to find out that my skin type is dry. Always thought I have combination skin. She asked which area that I'm mostly concerned. My panda eyes of course! She added that my skin is good (yay!) but I look pale because of my uneven skin tone. 

What causes uneven skin tone, you may ask?

I did a research and found out that overexposure to the sun is one of the main reason that causes you to have an uneven skin tone. Skin trauma is also another major cause of uneven skin tone.

I for one, always neglect the sunscreen thinking that it is only applicable if I hit the beach. WRONG!

Towards the completion of our consultation, San recommended me to try out their Luminous Detox Energie Care Treatment which is said to give immediate radiant skin from under eyes to face. Although my dark circles was my main concern, she advised me to treat the foundation first.

The whole treatment was really relaxing and it makes me wanna sleep! My therapist, Pik San was very gentle when handling my face. 

Pik San started my treatment with double cleansing to remove make up and oil based dirt from my face. You may think cleansing your face once is sufficient, truth is... it's not. You also need to clean your pores and nourish the deeper layers of your skin.

Next step was Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. It's normally done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. It's painless! In fact, there was only a suction sensation. Quite shiok actually. HAHA.


And then we moved on to sonic cleansing and extraction. I'd be lying if I said extraction wasn't painful. Maybe my threshold for pain is just not high enough. Honestly, I wasn't looking forward to the facial extraction. I hate it! But that's the only solution if you want to get rid of your blackheads, whiteheads, acnes or blemishes. Once they are cleared out, your skin should start to improve.
Yup. The gunk from my face. Disgusting!

After completing the extraction step, Pik San used a machine (can't recall the name!) - applied with Vitamin C and Green Tea to soothe my skin and aid in the penetration. This was actually my most favorite step. It has a cooling sensation.

Hahaha please ignore my face. It's hard to take a picture while enjoying your treatment hokaaaay!
Pik San then ended the treatment by applying a mask on my face. She also gave me a head and shoulder massage to substitute the facial massage.

I don't usually feel comfortable showing my no make up face cause sorry I am no natural beauty girl. Even my own boyfriend says I look ugly with no make up. How like that? 

Below are photos of me after the treatment. This is probably the first time in my life I feel confident walking around town with zero make up! Ok la I actually cheat a bit by drawing my eyebrows. Haha. 

My skin feels tight and it looks more radiant. Can you see the glow on my face?

I could also see a slight progress on my under eye. The dark circles went a shade lighter. Haha. Please don't expect to see a drastic progress just from 1 session. You need a lot of miracle for that. LOL. 

Thank you so much Hazel for giving me the opportunity to try out this treatment!
