Introducing the Queen of all facials to you…
When you enter My Cozy Room Spa, you will feel like a queen 👸🏻. And when you leave, you will feel like the QUEEN of queens ✨
I went for their Premium Illuminating Facial Treatment the day after I had a long day’s shoot. Somehow these photoshoots always require thick amounts of makeup for long hours on our skin and by the end of the shoot I’m always feeling like my skin is extremely tired and gunky.
I met with spa owner Celine, one of the most delightful and caring ladies about ten minutes before the start of my facial for her to access my skin condition and to recommend a suitable treatment for me then.
Oh look at her glowing skin (compared to mine!!! and those heavy eyebags tell no lie about how exhausted I was). I was determined to leave the spa with healthier, happier skin. They serve tea in the prettiest teacup sets too! Feels like royal treatment.
Celine said that since my skin was very thin and sensitive, the Premium Illuminating Facial Treatment would be perfect for me since it focuses on hydrating skin, treating unbalanced skin and restoring our skin to its healthy luminous state.
This is their signature facial and is even customisable to skin problems like acne, congested pores, pigmentation and even skin sensitivity (perfect for me).
My therapist for that day was Jasmine (the therapists there are all named after flowers so cute!!!). Extremely friendly and motherly lady who attended to me.
The Facial Begins!
Step 1: We started off with the usual cleansing step. This process will deep cleanse our skin with a plant-based HY-OL® cleanser (BABOR invention of World’s first hydrophilic cleansing oil). Ypur skin might feel like its soaked in oil at this time but fret not! Its not gonna clog your pores or anything. Its an essential oil needed to dissolve all impurities.
Step 2: You know how we always hear about double cleanse?? SO yep!! The second step is another deep cleanse! This time it is with the BABOR Phyto-active base treatment essence. This dissolves the oil cleanser form the previous step and helps to moisturise your skin while stimulating microcirculation
Step 3: A deep exfoliation using Papaya enzymes (yum yum!) to rid the skin of all dem dead cells.
Step 4: Black and whiteheads softening using a deep pore lotion (so that its easier to extract later on)
Step 5: Face steaming to open up your pores so that your extraction process will be easy breezy 😎
Step 6: The very-much anticipated EXTRACTIONS!!! Some people shiver at the thought of extractions cos they can really hurt as hell. I’m personally extremely afraid of it too cos even though it can be immensely satisfying to have those gunk manually rid of one by one (think the doctor pimple popper), they can sometimes hurt so much and if its not done properly, I would end up with red, blotchy and even swollen skin.
I never even had to worry about that with Jasmine. Honestly when she began the extractions I didnt even know she had started! She was soooooooooo GENTLE and hardly placed any pressure on the skin at all.
Look at my gunky skin getting cleaned out.
Not all of my clogged pores were cleared from this extraction cos I tend to have those really deep ones that are actually safer left untouched until they surface later on.
At the end, there was minimal redness (one or two spots at the chin mainly cos I have a naturally blotchy chin 😭)
Step 7: Tonic Application to soothe, reduce redness and disinfect skin from the extractions. Then a rose toner is applied to calm, relax and hydrate the skin.
Step 8: High Frequency device to kill off all bacteria and germs and to shrink dem pores. This is personally my FAVOURITE step. LOL! it kinda produces this squeaky clean ozone smell and feels abit tingly on the skin.
Step 9 (Add-on): Rmb how the facial is customisable? SO Celine recommended I add on an RF eye treatment to help reduce my dark eye circles and wrinkles and tighten those eye bags and loose skin. 🙈
Step 10: Rose Quartz Crystal Eye Massage 👀 This was CRAZILY comfortable!!!
The Rose Quartz Crystals are like smooth ice balls going over the skin of your eyes I could just lie there and do that forever. The massage is done in the direction of the lymph flow so that the radiance in our eyes can be restored.
Step 11: Lymphatic drainage massage to the face. The puffiness be gone!!!
Sooooo comfortable I think I sorta fell asleep.
This step allows for skin detox.
Look at Jasmine all skilled at her art.
Step 12: Dr Babor Ultimate Brightening Serum with Swiss Cress liposomes which helps to even out my blotchy skin, lighten pigmentation, marks and control the horrible melanin (the culprits behind those brown spots)
Step 13: THE HIGHLIGHT!!!!!! A luxurious alginate peel-off mask is applied onto the ENTIRE FACE, covering the eyes, lips and even up to the neck. So this deep sea algae flushes out metabolic wastes and provides EXTREME moisture.
Hehe your face cools by 1-2 degrees with this mask, I kid you not. You will feel refreshed for sure.
This goodness of a mask will strengthen the collagen fibers of our skin, reducing wrinkles and increasing skin elasticity, so that our skin starts to GLOWWWWW 💡
Step 14: Now this step is one of the many reasons why facials at My Cozy Room will leave you feeling overly-pampered. Their Anti-stress Head & Shoulder Massage will leave you craving for more. Using BABOR’s Body Spa products, Jasmine really gently and therapeutically massaged my neck and shoulders and all those soooore achey points. I just wished that step never ended.
Step 15: Tell me HOW MANY spas actually offer facials that PAMPER your HANDS and ARMS too???? 💪🏼
Well, My Cozy Room Spa does it for sure 😉
In this penultimate step, Jasmine, massaged and gently kneaded at my hands, and arms to relieve me from all that stress of carrying heavy bags and strain from long hours of phone use 🙌🏼
LAST STEP: By now I was already feeling sooooo refreshed. In this final step, the facial ends with a toner, moisturiser and sunblock.
Lets just take a moment to appreciate the difference here!
Before leaving, another cup of jasmine tea was served and I happily drank it all up.
In a week’s time, I had another shoot and I must say my skin was really glowy then!!!
