Tried the highly-raved Oxyliqui Facial #forthefirsttime


 H E L L O    E V E R Y O N E 

Today, I have something very exciting to share with you guys! About a month back, I was scrolling through the Vanitee App on my phone and I somehow ended up booking myself a session at Indulgence Beauty for a facial treatment.

If you don’t know what Vanitee is, Vanitee is a beauty service mobile application that allows you to search and book professional beauty services by emerging and independent artists.

So anyway, since I was in need of a facial, I decided to give Indulgence Beauty a try. But before I jump into the details and my experience, here is some basic information about them. Indulgence Beauty is located on the second Level of Tanjong Pagar Plaza.
Operating hours: 11.00am to 8.30pm

Alrighty, now that we’ve gotten the introduction part out of the way, let’s jump right into the post.

Step 1: Cleansing

I’m sure this step is pretty self-explanatory. Cleansing your face before any facial treatment is very important. This is to ensure that your skin is cleared and can fully absorb the treatment you’re about to receive.

Step 2: Analysis

After I cleansed my face and removed all my makeup, it was time to analyse my skin.
Here’s a picture of me taking a facial analysis before my treatment.
According to my beautician, Anna, this is a required step before every treatment as Indulgence Beauty believes that a proper skin diagnosis has to be done before any service or treatment can be given.

Here’s another picture of Anna examining the inner and outer layers of my skin. According to her, the condition of my skin falls on the dry side. And because of that, the Oxyliqui Facial Treatment would be perfect for me.

Oxyliqui, also known as Oxygen Anti-Acne Facial Treatment, effectively eliminates imperfections and fight bacteria associated with acne, restoring hormonal balance; perfect for those who are looking to treat any acne or extant scars.  The ‘liqui’ component also provide supple hydration to the skin, leaving it with a radiant glow. The ideal combination of oxy +liqui makes this treatment a go-to to achieve a flawless complexion.

Once the consultation was over, Anna led me back into the facial room so we both could get ready. Right after I laid down, Anna applied some sort of serum on my face, coupled with a few massage strokes to kick-start the facial treatment.

Here’s a photo of her applying the serum.

Step 3: Steaming

After the brief massage, Anna proceeded on to the next step. I’m sure everyone is familiar with this. If you’re not, this step is called Steaming. The streaming process is required before extraction. You will experience this in majority of the facials you go for. This is done to open up the pores to facilitate extraction.

Step 4: Extraction

Next up was extraction. You guys, let me tell you, my love-hate relationship for this process is real. Even though I extremely dislike and dread how extraction feels, I know that extraction is a needed step if you want to achieve a refine, fresh and clean face at the end of the treatment. Luckily, unlike most places, Anna used her hands instead of a condome extractor. This made the extraction process a lot more bearable. Phew!

Step 5: Massage

After the extraction, Anna gave my face a good massage. I have to say, I really really love her technique. To give you an idea of how it feels, just imagine someone giving you a massage that is both gentle yet firm, soft yet precise. In addition to the hand massage, Anna also included a Jade Ball massage further to pamper my face. This was probably my second most favorite part of the facial.

Clay Mask

After the massage, it was time to put on the Mask (my favorite part). For this treatment, a Clay Mask was used. According to Anna, Clay Masks has the ability to rejuvenate the skin, leaving it glowing, with a smooth and radiant texture.

The overall feeling of the Mask was pretty soothing. It was a little cold at the start but once it was left on my face for awhile, it felt rather relaxing. However, as I personally don’t quite like the feeling of something covering my eyes, having the Mask over it felt slightly uncomfortable. As such, if anyone of you have a similar dislike as I do, I would highly recommend you to inform the beautician to avoid your eye area.

I was left in the room for 15 minutes to allow the mask to work its magic. Once the time was up, Anna came back into the room and peeled off the mask. It came off effortlessly. At that moment, my face felt brand new instantly. It was definitely way lot more moisturized and refreshed. To end off the treatment, Anna applied some sunblock to protect my skin and moisturizer to boost its moisture.
