First it’s so painful during extraction and I feel my skin become so thin every time after facial. This facial is one of a kind. It gave me a a whole new feel on facial and truly a very pleasant facial treatment. The extraction were not as painful as usual and the Beauty Therapist’s skill is marvellous. The facial massage as well as the product that they use in this treatment is extremely soothing and relaxing. I would go back for this facial treatment as it does really make my face so supple and soft..like baby skin…..Though their price range is slightly above average but their product are of natural ingredient and has aromatherapy effect! Mimi, I’m going to blame you on this for making me splurge for their package!!! ”
