SBA2011: Sparkle Peel Facial With Adonis

I went for my first treatment with Adonis last Thursday and I was really excited as it’s my very first facial! The facial that I experience was the Sparkle Peel also known as the Flora Peel previously. I would say that I am very happy with the whole experience and really enjoyed the whole process!

Let me bring you through my first facial experience! XD

So I decided to take a photo of my bare face before I head to the facial. >< Look at all the redness, bumps etc. Haiz…… The skin is a bit tired due to late nights too. >< Oh well…

I was asked to soak my feet in warm water with essential oils added in while they prepare the room for the facial. It’s really nice and relaxing. XD

I was lead into the facial room, where the lights are dim, aromas of the essential oils and light relaxing music. The whole atmosphere just put one at ease.

At the start of the facial, the beautician cleanse my face first before proceeding to apply a peel which actually exfoliates and remove dead skin from the face. Next, she pull in a machine to “steam” my face. It’s not really steam as it’s actually cold. It’s meant to close up our pores. XD

After the “steaming”, I was given a trim for my eyebrows followed by a facial massage that focus on the acupoints of the face. The beautician then push in the Symphony machine as seen in the above photo. It’s actually like a massage using electro-waves from a electronic massager but on the face. I have a massage machine at home which includes those gel pads to be used on different points on our body. This is similar except that it’s for the face. There is a choice of Symphony Beats for different effects. The beautician will adjust it accordingly to your needs. In a course, the beats are not constant or rather the “pattern” of the beats will change after 1 or 2 minutes. This is actually good as it targets all the acupoints on the face.

I was given a Hot Eye Mask while doing the Symphony beats  too. The mask will heat up as time passes but the feeling is super refreshing in a way. It kind of awaken my tired eyes. 😛

I was given a shoulder massage and it was good. My shoulders were very tight so I asked the beautician to go on strong and it’s really good. My shoulders feels so much more relaxed after the massage.

After that, the beautician applied the flora essence peel to my face in two layers. She applied the first layer and fan it dry before applying the 2nd layer. When she was applying the peel, I can smell the distinctive herbal smell but it’s expected since the peel consists of 100% flora essence. It stings a little when the peel is being applied but the feeling subsided when it’s fan dried.

Here’s a photo taken right after the facial. I actually have the peel on my face as I have to leave it on for 8 hours for it to take on its full effect.

This Sparkle Peel facial involves no extraction at all. Instead, the peel will cause some breakouts which is normal as it’s purging the acne and all out from beneath the skin. My face started to peel mildly, 2 days after the facial. Now it’s around 6 days since the facial and there’s still some slight peeling but the skin feels relatively smooth. XD

Here’s the instruction given to me from the beautician. I was also given a balancing cream to apply. Was also advice to apply sunblock both day and night as the skin is quite vulnerable while it’s peeling.

I received a follow up call from Adonis on Monday where they asked about the condition of the skin and also reminding me to put on sunblock and to mask and moisturize more to smoothen the process of the peeling.

Here’s another photo of my bare skin. My skin appears “whiter” cause of the lighting. But you can definitely see that my skin ain’t that dull and tired anymore. Also the redness is not that clustered up anymore. I just need to wait for the bumps that are purged out to clear away. XD

Can’t wait for my next treatment with Adonis! XD
