Glomax Aesthetics: Luminous Detox Facial Review

Saturday, 26 December 2015

Recently, I received an invitation to receive a facial treatment at GLOMAX Aesthetics. Not knowing what to expect, I accepted the facial treatment after knowing that the facial they offered was an award winning facial treatment service. 

I headed over to their location in Clarke Quay and got here one weekday afternoon.
The entrance was nothing fancy, and in fact, it does look a little more homely once you step into the shop.

The friendly staff reviewed my skin and shared with me a little on the treatment I was about to receive. She also commented that my skin looked tired, and a little yellowish - to which I agreed since I just came back from winter in Korea.

Here's my before photo:
I was then led to a room, which was also quite  homely looking, with flowery wallpaper.

Here, I started my 90-min facial treatment journey here - the 'Luminous Detox Energie Care Treatment'. This treatment won the The Women's Weekly Best Pre Party Facial Award 2014

First, they purified my skin with Diamond microdermabrasion (which invigorates cell renewal). I asked them if this would redden my skin after the treatment, which my facial therapist patiently replied, "No dear, it would not. Don't worry." 

No steaming is used, but a sonic cleansing machine gently vibrates the dirt off the skin so as to prepare the skin for any manual extraction. 

Here's the before photo on the cleansing pad. 
Here's the after - OMGee! I didn't expect my face to have so much dirt, please. T.T But I'm glad it's all out.
Extraction time! To be honest, extraction still hurt - though not that much. Especially around my nose area, which is my serious pore-clogged zone. SIGH.

The dirt from my whitehead/blackhead extraction! ARGH!! Disgusting! - Don't say I didn't warn you. haha.
Here, she's using a high frequency machine to repair and calm any open wounds, speeding up the skin’s natural healing. This machine is designed with a customized cocktail of vitamins to refresh and strengthen the skin protective barrier, the skin immediately comes out looking clean and glowing inside out. After that, a 20-min customised mask to end off the session! :)
Different skin types will entail a usage of different cocktail of vitamins, which will help with whitening, anti-aging, anti-oxidants, acne/oily skin treatment or sensitive skin. The therapist will be glad to advise you on this after accessing your skin.

Before & After photos below are without any makeup, taken under the same type of lighting.

Before: 
After: The instant whitening effect! This is seriously visible and I was really impressed! Skin is much cleaner than before too.
Overall, I really enjoyed this treatment and I'm glad I did come for it!
