There’s always a first time for everything!
Last Tuesday (May 8, 2012), I was invited to try out some of the new services offered by Bioessence in their West Avenue branch. I was a little hesitant to go since I have never been in a shop totally dedicated to skin and spa. And I have known Bioessence to be one of the most prominent in the industry. Vanity is a luxury I have never given myself the chance to explore hehehe. But, ‘she’ who must not be named played a little Jedi mind trick on me.
So I went there with all my guns and bullets ready to shoot down any offers for a facial service and have decided to just try their express back massage. But I guess that Jedi mind trick was still working when I got to West Avenue because I listed myself for a BBtime facial.
We then went on a tour of the place with several terrifying notions in my mind since I don’t really know what happens in a facial treatment. Checked out their awesome facilities first. Here are some pics of the place:
Did you know, that the bioessence treatment room lights can be changed to your preferred color? Aside from scent (aroma) and music, color is also said to influence a relaxing mood.
The place was so relaxing, that by the time we got to the treatments I was already at peace with my decision plus that stress management briefing given by Bioessence Assistant Training Manager, Ms. Cha was extremely helpful.
Speaking of stress, the reason for the invite is for Bioessence to introduce their new campaign called “Beauty Break Time” or BBTime.
Bioessence, in its 18 years as one of the pioneers in health and wellness industry in the Philippines celebrates the modern pinoys -who knows exactly what they want, values their self worth and purpose amidst their busy schedule, be it career wise or family wise.
Love yourself! - This is the central theme of Bioessence’s campaign. To give ourselves “me time.” To de-stress, rejuvenate, and basically refresh ourselves from life’s daily routine.
BEAUTY BREAK TIME (BBTime)
With all the hassles we go through everyday, a stress free vacation would be great. But who has the time? With this in mind, Bioessence has concocted a unique and effective way to give ourselves a break for beauty.
Just like our staple coffee breaks daily, our skin also needs to breathe. A time to relax and be pampered.
When you visit the Bioessence clinic, you will always be greeted by a soothing aroma and a warm welcome from their friendly staff that will put you at ease right away. The relaxing atmosphere in Bioessence and excellent treatments from beauty to wellness will make you feel right at home, relaxed and pampered.
My treatment started with the EXPRESS BACK MASSAGE. I have never done facial treatments and other spa treatments before but I have been to several massage clinics that’s why I know the difference between a good and bad massage. Plus, my wife also gives a mean back massage. Bioessence’s express back massage is one of the best 30-minute dry back massage that I have experienced.
After that relaxing massage, they then let me experience the ”My Beauty Break Facial” which aims to encourage everyone to take time in maintaining clear, clean and healthy skin because it only last for 30 minutes, perfect for those whoa are always busy and people who are always on the go. For PhP 350.00, you can enjoy a 30 minute complete facial care which includes preliminary massage (3 min), cleansing (2 min, 30 sec), scrubbing and toning (3 min), steaming (5 min), extraction (15 min), Vitamin C application (30 sec) and Facial back massage (1 min).
It was not really as painful as I expected. And you know what, i really enjoyed it. I think I can get used to doing this as part of my wellness routine.
This coming Sunday is Mothers’ Day but great news to all Dads out there like me, Bioessence will be coming out with a special promo for Fathers’ Day this June! I think I already have my alibi set up for me to come back to Bioessence West Avenue hehe
Thank you so much Ms. Anj and the rest of Bioessence West Avenue for that awesome experience!
