THE NAIL LAB: Absolute Relaxation at its best


THE NAIL LAB: Absolute Relaxation at its best
 
Living in such a fast paced environment tends to make us feel tired and withered long before our time. I know inserting a spa appointment on your busy schedule can be difficult, but I tell you, your body needs to relax. Love and pamper yourself from time to time. Heal yourself said my friend Jo. The Nail Lab offers solution to tired souls and wash away problems and fears according to my friend. I was so curious why my friend was raving about this place. So, one Sunday afternoon, my brother and I went to The Nail Lab.
 
When we entered The Nail Lab, we were welcomed by this white, clean sofa with green throw pillows. Nice choice of colors! Plus, it was nice to know that mommies can bring along their kids when they have themselves pampered at The Nail Lab.
 
I told the receptionist that I wanted to feel young and rejuvenated again. She suggested for me to try The Nail Lab Signature Body Scrub and Mud Wrap ( Php 1,080) and the Ageloc Galvanic Facial ( Php 840 )

The Nail Lab competent attendant asked me to change inside their clean comfort room, then afterwards, led me upstairs where I entered an ambiance of blissful relaxation.

 
She then asked me to lie down on a massage table covered with a sheet and a large, thin piece of plastic. As I lay on my stomach, the massage therapist rubs a mixture of sea salt, oil, and aromatics like lavender into my skin. This exfoliates the skin and leaves my skin feeling velvety soft. I felt so refreshed.  I melted in total bliss as calluses were filed down to near nothingness and dead skin cells cowered in fear with my full body scrub session with The Nail Lab. I allowed my body to experience pure relaxation. I experience rest in every part of my body. I felt improvement on my well-being. The exfoliating treatment of the body scrub of sea salt enriched with lavender that was gently applied to restore my skin’s natural glow gave me that much needed me-time.

After the attendant scrubbed my whole body, which takes maybe ten or fifteen minutes, she wash it it all off without soap, leaving a nice coating of oil. It's an invigorating treatment. I really think it was a good idea to have a body scrub at this point. She then applied mud and wrapped my whole body in a thermal blanket, it's a "detoxifying" treatment that stimulates a person's metabolic system, speeding its ability to carry away waste products. Variations can come from the essential oils or scrub materials so asked them what is the best treatment for you.

She then called another attendant to begin my Ageloc Galvanic Facial which effectively smooth-en wrinkles and lines since it boosts the skin’s natural collagen content by stimulating collagen production from the inside, thus effectively firming the skin and reducing lines. Even if you feel that you don’t need a collagen boost just yet, its moisturizing properties have been proven to be very effective for those with chronic dry skin, ensuring that you will not need to even think about anti-aging regiments for a very long time! I love this treatment!
 
I highly recommend The Nail Lab Signature Body Scrub and Mud Wrap treatment and Ageloc Galvanic Facial. I went home feeling so relaxed, younger, slimmer and whiter. I had one of the most relaxing body scrub at The Nail Lab. I never thought that a body scrub would be so relaxing. For the first time in my life, I gave body scrub a try. And it did not failed me. I had the most Invigorating pampering in years! I think that's The Nail Lab guarantee- absolute relaxation
 
Living in a world full of stress. We should all find time to relax and decompress. Indulge your body and face at the Nail Lab. RESULTS YOU CAN FEEL!!

BEAUTY BREAK TIME AT BIOESSENCE


"The beauty of your face and physical outlook is the mirror of your heart"

Sometimes this quote is untrue. Why? With today's level of pollution, bad genes and stress one needs a back up to remain beautiful. Facial is a popular de-stressing option.

So when I was given an invitation to try Bioessence Beauty Break Time I immediately grabbed the opportunity to have a relaxing beauty facial. 
 
Bioessence Beauty break time is very timely because Facial rejuvenation can effectively reduce wrinkles, treat sun spots, tighten loose skin, improve skin tone and color, remove blotchiness, plus it eliminates damaged blood vessels.
Imagine for only Php 350.00 you will received 30 minutes of facial pampering. That includes cleansing, steam, extraction of blackheads, Vitamin C Cream plus a back massage! Grab this opportunity to have the most relaxing BB (beauty break) ever!
 
The first thing I noticed when I entered Bioessence is the welcoming smile of the staff, the refreshing smell of peppermint essential oil and the beautiful ceiling lights. Did you noticed how I almost always insert beautiful lamps and lighting pictures on my posts? Ha ha ha! I'm such a sucker for beautiful lamps everywhere I go.
 
Bioessence offers a wide array of medicines that caters to every skin type. For me it`s always more pampering to have someone do the facial for you. Plus a facial increases your face value in the workplace.
 Several wall paintings welcomes guests as they ascend the stairs.
You'll feel instantly at home at Bioessence. If you happened to come early for your appointment, they have a television at the second floor to entertain you. Plus the latest issue of magazines and newspapers.

A facial basically involves cleaning the face, extracting pesky blackheads and whiteheads, treating pimples, and closing the pores with a laser treatment.
The very relaxing ambiance at Bioessence and the very light hands of the one doing my facial made me doze to dreamlandia. Yes! Facial need not be painful. Facial at Bioessence almost always has a tranquilizer effect on me unlike in other salons where I end up crying. I've been to so many dermatologists and facial salons in Metro Manila and in our province and Bioessence is one of the few facial salons that really left a good impression on me. I really really love Bioessence Facial.
After the esthetician ushered me to the room and asked me to lie down, she started cleaning my face with a cotton pads or was that a sponge? and applied a product she chose for my skin type. She then covered my eyes and take a good look at my skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp that reveals various skin conditions. She then began exfoliation using a mechanical exfoliant. Mechanical exfoliation has a gritty texture while a steam vapor is directed at my face. Then she did an extraction. Note: Please be warned though, that an extraction can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done on sensitive skin, or done improperly. People have different pain tolerance for extractions. Extraction can be uncomfortable, especially on thin or ruddy skin. A professional esthetician would ask you whether you like to have an extraction or not. So kindly give them a reply when they ask you.

Then she began facial massage using classic strokes like effleurage that relaxes and stimulate my skin and facial muscles at the same time. That is when I doze off to dreamlandia. He he he.

A facial mask is targeted to your skin condition and type whether dry, oily, combination, sensitive or mature. During the facial, the esthetician should stay with you in the room and give you a scalp massage or some other services. I know for a fact that they apply toners and protective creams as a final touch. But I was busy dreaming that I never felt the final touches.

She showed me what she excavated from my face after I woke up- a gazillion whiteheads. Yucks! Ha ha ha!
Anj told me that Bioessence have a Mother's Day promo that will only cost you Php 740 only. Inclusive of a cute tote bag plus a gift certificate for Facial pampering for one (1) full hour plus a special soap and facial milk cleanser. Available until May 31, 2012.

Whoa! This is such a steal because ordinarily a basic facial itself will cost you P600 plus the facial milk cleanser will cost Php 240 and the special soap Php 150 equals Php 990. That is a whooping Php 250 discount. Panalo!
With 18 years of excellent service in health and wellness and 52 branches nationwide, you can be assured Bioessence will not only make you feel good and beautiful, but will also help enhance your total well being. Call 376-7106 or 0918-8-BEAUTY for inquiries and appointments.

Travel on a shoestring would like to thank BIOESSENCE and staff plus Miss Anj for the beauty break opportunity.

Note: This is not a paid post. My story is based on my actual facial and hand paraffin treatment experience at Bioessence.
