The Jade Roller Facial Experience at Dermcare Luxe

I just had my facial first week of September with an aesthetic center and my skin was totally scrubbed clean without the blackheads and whiteheads crowding my nose.  2 weeks after the facial, I got invited by Dermcare Luxe to try out their services. I have heard of this brand and I know they are quite popular when it comes to their facials. The feedback that I’m getting from friends is that they are quite affordable and gives the best results on skincare.



Dermcare— with more than 80 branches all over the country and a collective-20 year history in the industry has evolved into higher levels of luxurious pampering and more soothing ambiance by way of installing modern state-of-the-art facilities to ensure it’s valued client’s satisfaction.

They had me choose which type of service to try. They have a wide selection of facials and I am dizzy which one to try but my fellow mommy blogger Mommy Lariza, recommended the Jade Roller facial.  It was a perfect suggestion since I have always been curious what the effects of a jade roller is on your skin.  All I know is that it relaxes your face and somehow helps lose the sagginess and is considered anti-aging.

The Jade Roller Facial

I only have one photo of myself while doing the treatment. Whenever I have my facials, I make sure to experience it without any distractions and phones are a distraction. But since I want to share this with you, I decided to take just one photo of myself while the therapist is doing the jade roller on my face.

The procedure:

  1. The therapist cleansed my face with a toner and removed all traces of my makeup.
  2. She had my face steamed for about 15 mins or so.
  3. Then the usual traditional pricking. I am sort of used to this one since I get regular facials. The only agonizing part is the nose. I’m sure all of you can relate to me on this one.
  4. After the pricking, she started doing the jade roller for about 20 minutes I think. I wasn’t able to calculate the minutes since I dozed off.  It was so relaxing and I felt my face became tight. Jade rollers have been piquing my interest for so long that finally, I was able to experience it and this is how it feels like being rolled in my face.  Upon doing research, jade rollers have been popular for Chinese women since the 7th century. It has healing and protective properties for the skin and boosts blood circulation which helps reduce swelling and allowing for deeper penetration of skincare products.
  5. After the jade roller, she applied some moisturizing cream and sunblock.  I was advised not to wash my face for 8 hours.

Sorry for the blurry photo.

You want No Pores? Try Loreal Revitalift Laser X3

The no-pores obsession from women is turning out to be a fad making all the skincare companies come up with products that can provide this kind of effect on our skin. It’s quite a challenge to look for a brand that would complement your skin type. I had so many brand collabs and to be honest, some of them didn’t work well and they’re now all stashed somewhere in the confines of my room waiting to expire. Time flies and the number of my age is adding up, and taking care of our skin should be one of our priorities. It is an investment worth shelling out for in the long run.

Hey Sugar Eyelash Perm review

Last month I was invited by Hey Sugar to try out one of their services.  After checking their menu, , I was quite having a hard time choosing which services to get because most of the offers are waxing for underarms, bikini waxing, face waxing and all sorts of waxing you can think of. Well, I don’t think that would be applicable to me because I was blessed with having fine hairs on my body.  The hairs on my underarms and legs are so fine you wouldn’t really feel them or see them. So I decided to just have the Eyelash Perming.  The downside of having fine hair is that my lashes are barely distinguishable so I need to make it somehow visible.

So they had me lie down on their bed to start the process. It’s my first time so I was kind of nervous like I feel I’m about to have an operation or something.


Turns out the procedure was so easy and quick. They put some conditioner of some sort in my lashes, then wrapped them in a foil. See how weird looking I was but hey sugar, I need this to beautify my eyes.


Bloated ugly face haha

I know you can barely see it.

I lost my other photo with my fluttery eyelashes. But again, its really neat and  I am looking so pretty with the help of the perming. All it takes is a good thick mascara and I’m off to ramp the walkway! Char.
