I never suffer from acne or outbreaks all my life but I do suffer from dryness from the other end of the spectrum. Even investing in expensive facial products and masks to apply at home does not alleviate my dry skin and fine lines problem, especially around the delicate eye area.
As what I have mentioned in my previous posts, if we do not slough off the dead and damaged skin cells on the epidermis of our face, we will reap zero benefits from all the expensive products bought.
A weekly exfoliation will encourage skin cell regeneration and helps your skin absorb products effectively, which is why I prefer pampering myself with regular facial treatments and just let the therapist customised a facial treatment suitable for my current skin condition.
My therapist, Shirleen, applied 3 masks (including an eye mask) and did a facial massage and shoulder massage for me using only serum and pure essential oils in this entire 75-min session! I felt really relaxed and radiant after the Bejeweled facial.
Bejeweled started as a Nail Spa in International Plaza and have since expanded to provide a comprehensive suite of beauty services which includes facial treatments, eye lash perming and hair removal at their beauty concept outlet located at BreadTalk IHQ since July 2015.
About Vagheggi Essential Oil & Oligomineral Products From Italy
Bejeweled uses only premium Vagheggi essential oil and oligomineral products for all their facial treatments. Vagheggi essential oils are 100% pure and natural concentrated blends which are complex aromatic oils consisting of volatile organic compounds.
Vagheggi product range also includes trace elements (i.e. manganese, magnesium & aluminium) which are nutritional elements needed in small amounts but are fundamental for the correct skin physiology to help maintain the delicate balance of our skin.
The Vagheggi Aromatic Holistic Customised Facial
Shirleen decided to do the Vagheggi Aromatic Holistic Customised Facial ($188) for me to help hydrate and improve the fine lines on my face. Using only serum and aromatic essential oils in this Bejeweled facial, she customised a skin care solution to deeply cleanse, mineralize and infuse plant essences into my skin to give me an aromatherapy indulgence.
The Vagheggi philosophy incorporates a welcome step called “Contact” which is a facial ritual that comprises of essential oils application, deep breathing and massage techniques to relax and prepare me for the benefits of the subsequent facial treatment. As I had rushed down for my facial appointment after work, I do feel very relaxed during the welcome step!
After double cleansing with a milk and gel cleanser, Shirleen proceeded to do exfoliation, extraction and eye brow trimming for me. To reduce the redness from the extraction, Shirleen applied the first mask on my face and did not leave the room while leaving the mask on, instead, she proceeded to give me a very soothing shoulder massage.
She then applied ampoule and used the two blue “cold balls” to cool and calm my face which felt really rejuvenating. Shirleen then used a hand-held machine on my face for better penetration of the ampoule.
As you can see from the photo above, she uses “Red” light, which has an anti-aging therapeutic function of stimulating blood circulation, collagen production and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This machine also has other therapeutic modes in the form of blue, green and white light to treat different skin conditions.
Now it is time for the facial massage using serum to lock in the much-needed hydration to my dry skin, which felt like pure bliss.
Finally, Shirleen applied face and eye masks on my face but still she did not leave the room while leaving the masks on, as what many therapists from other spas would have done from my personal experience. Instead, Shirleen gave me an invigorating head and scalp massage by tugging my hair gently!
Throughout the entire facial session, I was asking Shirleen for advice on good skin care routine. As I had recently bought a foam cleanser online (quite expensive), I asked whether it is suitable for my skin type. Shirleen advised me to use the milk or gel cleansers instead as the foam cleanser will be too drying for my skin and hence, I had to give it away to someone who has oily skin! 🙂
The Vagheggi serum and pure essential oils products used in the facial treatment also did wonders to hydate and improve my skin condition.
Bejeweled also sells Vagheggi products that customers can buy as part of their facial regimen at home.
