Head Scalp Spa at Creme The Hair Spa
Was sent a voucher for a complimentary head scalp spa at Creme The Hair Spa worth $118 for my leechie bday =) this was my first hair spa session...the session was really v.relaxing...i sat on the massage chair....n dozed off...lol...ampoule for hair loss was applied to my scalp n the therapist massaged my scalp...she was really v.attentive...even helped me put on the bedroom slippers (which was totally unexpected)...i had soothing blackcurrant tea there...thumbs up for the excellent service =) i noticed tt another Japanese lady was there during my session...i was rather surprised cos when given a choice, most Japanese would prefer to go to a Japanese salon rather than a non-Japanese one...so this should say something about the level of service there...found out tt a few local ladies mags did reviews for their services too o.O for those of u who r interested to visit them, they will be moving over to Central at Clarke Quay after Xmas...they have some special promos going on too =)
Brought my leechie mum to a skincare talk at Germanium on tues...n they did a complimentary "Gua Sha" session for my leechie mum...they did one side of her face first to show the contrast...well, it was pretty obvious tt the right side of her face where "Gua Sha" was done looks visibly lifted n fairer! well, my leechie mum was pretty happy =) apologies tt i cant post any pics of my leechie mum here cos she's rather publicity shy o.O"
Leechie was sent a box of Tsubaki Perfect Beauty Drink by AFC Lifestream...tried it n i like the fresh citrus taste...it's so refreshing and different from those overly-milky taste from some other brand of collagen which i took previously...n it's v.convenient too...there's no troublesome mixing of powder into water so no worries of insolubility...it contains micro-collagen peptides, bio-cell activator n hyaluronic acid...a highly-recommended collagen drink from leechie...saw tt Tsubaki Perfect Beauty Drink was also voted Women's Weekly #1 Best Skin Supplement Drink! btw, i also bot the AFC collagen tablets previously n i like that too =)

Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind."
