ClearSK’s Aqua Peel – The Quick Antidote to Bright, Fresh Skin!

From a quick glance at my past few facial sessions, it seems like I’m caught in this hamster wheel of skin cleaning and de-congesting facials and frankly speaking, I really don’t mind.

Often times when you ask people what their skin concerns are, things like brightening the skin, dullness, lines, acne etc comes to mind. These are concerns that are very frequently brought up and while in their own light they are concerns – like I have my own issues with dullness, pigmentation and lines – the first and utmost concern most of us should have is, how clean is our skin?

I believe I have preached this before in previous skin-cleansing posts but the reason why keeping your skin clean and de-clogging those pores / cleaning beneath the surface is important is because it is the very first step to great skin.

Especially with the large amounts of pollutants in the environment these days (darn haze…), our skin is more prone to clogging up even if we are religious with exfoliating and using a purifying mask, there is only so much we can do from our end.

Also, the thing about not addressing clogged skin the minute you sense itchiness and bumps is that often times, these clogs can and tend to breed bacteria which will cause your skin to become more sensitive, irritable and in some cases result in an explosion of acne even though you’re pretty sure you’re past your days of puberty.

So… I think I’ve brought to light how important clean skin is, yes?

p.s. This is wordy but stay till the end because I’ve got information on free trial treatments below! It isn’t even a lucky draw, but a generous offer from ClearSK for all interested, so stay on!

Now moving on from that, if you feel like you’ve got no time to sit through an additional facial session on top of what you are already subscribed to (say whitening or laser sessions), or if you don’t go for facial sessions to begin with, then I’ll have you know that the Aqua Peel Facial session over at ClearSK is incredibly quick business!

Here’s the official write up about the facial session:

The Aqua ST system is the newest skin treatment that provides both non-invasive exfoliation and delivery of topical solutions to safely and painlessly cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin. This allows customers to achieve optimum results on an accelerated basis without the complications and discomfort usually associated with invasive procedures. In addition, the Aqua ST is unique because it does not use crystals or other abrasive particles that can irritate the skin.

Of course, I spent a bit of time chatting with the therapist and the chirpy marketing lady but in truth I believe you can hop in and out of ClearSK over a lunch break – 45 minutes tops.

What’s more they are conveniently located at Novena Medical Centre so if your work area is in the central district – town or even Novena itself – you can pop by and grab some lunch back from mall! Very convenient and what’s more pampering than a quick skin refresh during a busy day at work, yes?

To showcase a little about the place, ClearSK has different ‘rooms’ to cater to different needs and also vibes.

The one I frequented the minute I arrived is the sleek, clean and sterile one that gives off a very clean and high-tech vibe. Even registering for your facial the moment you arrive (seeing that you have an appointment) can be done very efficiently with this touch-screen monitor.

Once I entered, I was served a cute and small cup of fragrant tea – not green tea, but something very familiar and aromatic – and a piping hot towel to freshen myself up with. It was such a welcoming gesture given I zoomed down to Novena straight after work.

With that, I went through the usual protocol of filling in a customer data sheet, followed by a quick consultation with a skin doctor over at another set of rooms they offered (that offered a more luxurious feel, think plush cushions and french flair) before I was directed back here for a facial session that best suited my skintype.

Initially I was scheduled for another session – the Ionto Ultrasonic Facial – but the doctor felt the immediate concern I should address is the congestion in my skin so plans changed and I’m glad for this too. I know, myself, that congestion is something I was facing right now due to my neglect for my skin of late (I seem to be doing this a lot, tsk!) so it’s a good call to get rid of that and continue on my journey to supple, brightened skin!

Alrightey, I have rambled on too much, let’s move on to the room and the Aqua Peel treatment!

The Makeup Cleanse –

As usual, the very first step is to clean the skin out so Joyce – my very attentive and skilled therapist – gently and thoroughly removed my makeup, not even leaving a speck or smear of eyeliner (I requested it to all be off) unlike other places that often leave a liner-smear on your lower lids.

Please don’t mind my humorously captured and unglamorous expressions here, focus on the procedure!

Now, with a fresh clean face, we’re ready to start on the Aqua Peel treatment!

Exfoliating the Surface! –

The first order of business is to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This step also helps to rid any congestion near the surface of the skin since the procedure is very much like ‘vacuuming’ the skin.

Those who have tried Diamond Peel before will note that this step is very similar to that, almost the same actually but depending on the therapist the experience can be quite a different one.

In prior Diamond Peel experiences, the therapist would use one ‘head’ throughout the whole of my face but little did I know that this machine actually allows for smaller ‘heads’ for a more precise cleansing effort in the smaller crevices of our face.

The therapist, Joyce, was also careful not to use too harsh a suction level upon finding out about my eczema issues. I assured her they didn’t reach my face but to be safe, she decided to go easy on me less my skin felt temperamental this time.

My expression says it all, Diamond Peel isn’t meant to be scratchy or painful at all. It’s actually quite enjoyable.

The Acids –

Right after your skin has been rid of all the icky dead skin cells and dirt that sit about the surface of your skin, preventing product absorption, this would be the best time to introduce some active ingredients to the skin.

This way you can be assured that they will thoroughly and also properly penetrate your skin for optimal absorption and also effect!

This step of the Aqua Peel treatment sees 3 different acids being dabbed on the skin (via a machine cause it’s high-tech yo) and then massaged in lightly by the therapist.

The 3 acids include:

  • Lactic Acid for Anti Oxidant purposes
    to combat free radicals and also environmental damage to the surface of the skin.
  • Salicylic Acid
    Which is most ideal for oily and acne prone skin type, to calm the skin and prevent flare ups by penetrating the  pores and dislodging dead skin cells
  • Hyaluronic Acid for Hydrating and Softening
    As we all know, this helps to hydrate the skin making it supple, softened, plumps up fine lines and smoothens the skin.

Though due to my skin sensitivity and also dryness in some spots (my combination skin), the doctor ordered for me to skip out Salicylic Acid since I don’t face any acne issues.

After the Therapist was done applying both acids, I was left for a short while (about 5 minutes, I think) for them to settle into the skin and work their magic.

I didn’t feel anything classified as a discomfort during this period but there were mild biting sensations on the skin, which wore away after awhile. Joyce, my therapist, was also careful to give me a lighter dosage of the acids for fear that any sensitivity might occur due to my eczema skin history. I liked her attentiveness even though I have assured her before that my face-skin is relatively hardy.

Her conclusion is, it’s always good to start safe and slowly bring the dosage up than to go at it than cause any sensitive reaction.

Aloe Mask & Chill –

Now, after all that skin vacuuming and also a tiny chemical ‘invasion’ to the skin, all done for a greater cause, it’s time to give the skin a little pampering that it deserves – to soothe, calm and also properly nourish it.

What better way to get all that done than to slap on a chilled mask and just well, chill!

Joyce specially picked out an Aloe Vera mask for me because she says that Aloe Vera is especially good for sensitive and eczema prone skin. I know that for myself because I carry a tiny tub of Aloe gel everywhere I go.

So anyway, for those who aren’t too sure what Aloe vera is good for, it is an anti-inflammatory product that helps to heal and soothe the skin in a very natural way which makes it such a popular choice amongst those with sensitive skin. It feels cool on and helps soothe itch, dryness and wounds at the same time.

So perfect, right? And such a pretty green too, in the case of this mask.

Once 15-20 minutes is up, I lost track of time with the darkness once the mask went on along with the comfortable temperature and cozy comforter. I think I was just about to fall asleep when Joyce came back in and said she could remove the mask now.

Once the mask was peeled off, both Joyce and Shermaine (lovely marketing lady) exclaimed at how radiant and ‘clear’ my skin was. It’s something that is hard to capture on camera but when I took a mirror and saw it for myself, my skin was glowing, almost!

So clear and so fresh-faced. I attempted to capture it as best as I could but lighting conditions there proved a little tricky.

Post Facial –

Though I took some snaps once home and while it still can’t capture the clear skin as I see it, it does capture how much cleaner and less congested some parts of my face have become.

It helps that my pores also look as if they have been smoothed out a little and the overall texture of my face felt a lot smoother.

Since my skin isn’t perfect (with some typical redness also pigmentation spots) the best way to really show the smoothened out texture and great skin post facial is seeing how perfectly well foundation goes on!

I managed to shelf all my skin smoothing makeup bases for a good while (haven’t reached for them yet!) because my skin felt smooth enough that I didn’t need them.

Foundation that I have on is Diorskin Nude Foundation, fyi.

Purple Divider

So yes, I think pictures speak for themselves in terms of how much smoothened my skin has become and while I can’t capture how much dirt has been removed from my skin, I definitely feel a lot better in my skin. Less itching spots, less bumps, less random redness and all, it’s almost like having done a really good deep clean.

Wait, well, that’s exactly what I did actually!

So, yes I hope that this entry was informative enough to give you an idea of a quick facial option around the Novena area should you ever feel that your skin needs a little cleansing and cleaning out!

Fresh, Clean Skin with EHA Clinic's Deep Cleansing Facial

Before I give my blog a little pat on the back and leave it to be its independant self while I scoot to Japan, let me first share this skin cleansing and prepping session I had the privilege of trying out.

So, as with my last facial mention, my skin is facing some dark days…

Okay, maybe that is exaggerating it but while scrolling through my Picasa Albums, I felt a little sob at how perfect my skin was during my pregnancy days.

Granted that has been awhile ago, this whole while (a whole damn year), my body has been balancing my crazy hormones out and that has resulted in some less-than-perfect skin days of late. I conclude normalcy has returned…

Aside from it being hormonal, the slight neglect I’ve left my skin in (really y’all, I just slap on moisturizers on some nights, no serums nada) due to time and what other random life excuse I can find, I know my skin has been a little clogged, a little icky and probably desperately crying out for more TLC.

So my point being, this Deep Clean came at a great time! While I did experience the Jet PR3 Facial a good while ago, that was targetted at prepping the skin for the complementing range and not a full-out cleansing facial session, as this one is.

My facial session took place at EHA Clinic which lies at a quiet portion of town – the office side of things over at Shaw Towers.

A quick pan of their ‘holding area’ lets you know that at EHA Clinic everything is kept minimal, yet functional. While they don’t have lavish furnishings, they make up for that with a whole arsenal of equipment stashed away behind a false wall.

Yeap, I got a peek of it, heh!

Here’s a whole wall of their certificates and accolades, incase you had any doubts.

At EHA Clinic, they genuinely pride themselves on giving the best of their abilities to the customers hence they do have a policy whereby each client should try (as much as they can from their own end) not to be late for their facial appointments.

Being late means the beautician would have to rush through your appointment which would then take away from being thorough and proper about it, hence!

Though I suppose we all try not to be late for facial sessions for the same reason as well, I’m guessing.

After I had a good look around and filled up some papers (first time visit and all), I was whisked away to a room to prepare for my Facial Session.

The facial room, like the outside, is simple but functional with machines (that aren’t kept) lining the wall, a bed on one end, a wash basin and also a small cabinet for you to stash your belongings.

What I found surprising was the amount of space in the room, given I have seen my fair share of pretty cramped-up facial rooms since space is precious and more rooms are the ideal.

I wasted no time – because I headed over after work and was really looking forward to dinner after the facial, ha – and got changed (to a robe) and started the facial session.

Step 1 – Cleansing the Skin

As with all facials, the first step is to clean the skin of makeup and dirt.

I’ve made it a point to wear makeup that is fairly easy to remove (I came after work so I had to have on some makeup at least) on days that I have to get a facial done. After all, I don’t want to trouble them with spending 10 minutes just to remove my mascara proper.

At this point, the beautician would access your skin and decide if the treatment you had signed up for is appropriate for your skin or not.

The initial plan was for me to try out EHA’s ReFirme Facial which is a skin firming, brightening, and stimulating facial session that I’ve seen pretty incredible reviews about. Though Vicki (my beautician) decided that my skin’s concerned right now wasn’t all that and if I went ahead with ReFirme, perhaps it could aggravate the clogged pores in my skin and cause breakouts.

Hence, if anything, it’s best to address my skin’s concern of congestion. Thus, I ended up on this route instead, one that my skin was truly in need of – a good cleaning out.

Step 2 – Exfoliating

To rid of any superficial dead skin, Vicki performed a quick exfoliation with those ‘peeling’ sort of exfoliants.

You’ll know what I am refering to once you see the image.

Now, my face is all nice and clean! It’s a little in your face, but here:

Step 3 – Misting the Skin

The next step would be to mist the skin and over here at EHA Clinic, they use a cool mist instead of a warm one.

I have experienced cool misting a couple of times so I didn’t bother enquiring but thinking back I can’t quite recall the full list of benefits but it works to hydrate the skin surface, making it more supple and also soft enough for proper exfoliation and cleansing to follow.

Usually a cool mist is preferred as warm ones will open up the pores (which rightfully is what they want) and if the pores aren’t ‘closed’ properly, it could lead to more dirt and dust clogging in them.

Step 4 – Diamond Peel, Scrubbing That Dirt Out!

Diamond Peel is a procedure I’m certain most are familiar with, just because it is one that is hugely advertised and promoted at beauty salons for being an incredibly non-invasive way to scrub (or rather suck) your skin clean.

Though I think, I really can’t recall right, that this is my first time having a go at it and well, I suppose it works!

It looks kinda creepy photographed but I assure you I felt no pain or discomfort through the procedure and Vicki was careful to skirt around the delicate skin portion (undereye area).

If anything, maybe a little sadistic sound, I liked the feeling of the suction and I can almost envision the icky bits of dirt being sucked up and away into dead-skin-abyss by the powerful ‘vacuum’.

Step 5 – Getting Hands On… aka Extractions

Okay, I will admit I have a love/hate relationship with extractions.

So let’s start this segment with Vicki offering to clean up my brows by shaping and triming them a little.

So… about extractions.

While there are many new beauty / facial innovations and a crapload of machines that can suck through varying layers of your epidermis or cleanse / scrub away at your dead skin like a magic eraser, I feel that nothing really beats a clean, thorough (albeit painful) extraction process.

Extractions have a bad name and I can understand why because they flippin’ hurt and are horrible to endure sometimes. It depends on your treshold and I do get squirmy at some extraction procedures but generally, I can bite my lip and appear cool / calm through it.

Mind over matter, mind over matter

I just remind myself how nice and clean my skin would be once it’s over.

Since I had some annoying spots and bumps on my face, I was ever grateful for the extraction process for properly cleansing those icky bumps out, even if it came at the cost of a reddish spot after.

But I’ve come to learn it’s a little journey you have to endure because my skin is always that much smoother (less bumpy) and cleaner a week after the extraction process.

So yes, I am quite pro-extractions…

Though to give credit to this place, the extraction process was the usual bout of wincing but nothing too painful or stinging and Vicki was skilled in being quick and thorough about it so I didn’t have to endure this for long.

Step 6 – Daily Dose of Vitamin C

After squishing and pinching my face about, Vicki proceeded to put a Vitamin C infused mask on for me.

The purpose of this, as Vitamin C is known for, is to promote skin rejuvenation and also speed up the healing process after the previous step of extracting and poking about the skin.

Vitamin C also helps to nourish the skin and improve the skin’s radiance, giving you a healthy glow! Very much as if you took a dose of Vitamin C!

Step 7 – The Massage!

I think this step needs no explanation – it was awesome, relaxing and totally necessary!

Using a Lavender scented oil, Vicki massaged my face / head, neck, as well as shoulders. It was simple and quick but so perfect to slowly wrap up the facial session.

Step 8 – Treatment Masks

The last step of the facial would be this, the treatment mask where Vicki specially mixed up a Lavender-infused face-mask for me (would differ with your skin concern) because that helps with controlling sebum production in the skin, especially so for my T-zone, as well as soothe the skin after the extraction process.

On top of that, Vicki also mixed up a hot-eye mask for me. While I had heard of these hot-eye masks before, trying one for myself was quite an experience. It was totally calming, soothing and the slow emitting warmth from the mixture felt extremely comforting on my skin, I loved it!

I look ridiculous but I DON’T CURRRR, as long as I had my clean glowy skin after, who cares if I look like the hulk with whipped cream over my eyes. Ha!

After Thoughts…

While parts of my face felt a little sore from the extraction, I was so pleased with how clean my skin felt (to me) that I snapped this shortly after I left EHA Clinic.

No brows, no nothing!

While the facial session, in itself, is a fairly simple and straightforward one that largely reminds me of the general procedures at most facial places, I liked that they included the Diamond Peel machine in the steps for that extra clean.

On top of that, I felt like I was in really good hands with Vicki as she explained my skintype and easily defined my skin issues (which were all spot on, hurhur punny), allowing her to properly recommend the right masks and treatments to better my skin condition.

It had been a good long while since I had done a proper deep cleansing facial and in that time, I guess I had neglected the fact that while I do exfoliate the surface of my skin from time to time, dirt and such does build up under the layers of the skin causing congestion and bumps to happen. No wonder I had been suffering from random icky bumps for awhile, I believe my skin was at its treshold of ickiness.

Here are some shots right after the facial (once I got home), where everything is still a little red and sore.

Importantly, check out how clean my nose / pores are!

As I said, it does get red and sore for the first couple of days but my skin healed up really quickly and by the 1 week mark, it was starting to look ‘normal’ again.

Of course a whole lot cleaner, less bumpy and with my pores feeling a lot more refined.

Here’s my face about a week later:

My skin looks a lot clearer and of course less agitated now, as compared to how it was right after the facial. While I can’t exactly photography this aspect, my skin felt a lot smoother and in a way, less congested too.

Congestion is something I can’t really snap a photo of but you know when your skin just feels cleaner, less itchy and ‘dirty’, somehow a lot clearer?

Yes, that was exactly how I felt.

Love Your Skin – Jet Concepts Liquid Laser Treatment & Skincare!

My previous experience with Jet Concepts had left me with nothing but good thoughts and good results to take away from.

Now whenever anyone ask me for a facial recommendation (“I want results with just one session!“) and didn’t mind compromising on that whole spa mood and ambience, I would direct them to Jet Concepts.

Though, I will always preface a Jet Concepts entry with this: If you’re seeking a relaxing, soothing and completely spa-like treatment then this isn’t the right place.

At Jet Concepts, they specialize with using state-of-the-art equipment that is otherwise found in doctors and aesthetic clinics. What they do boast is genuine results immediately and a continual improvement of your skin over the next few days along with the effects sustaining for a few months even!

Before you start wondering, no this isn’t an aesthetic procedure and there isn’t any downtime with their procedures. Perhaps the usual post-facial redness sometimes but from my experience (and what I have heard / seen), everyone walks out with glowingly healthy skin.

You really have to try it to believe it!

I’m actually really late with my mention about this, my bad, as it got pushed back and a little forgotten along the way, seeing as I had this treatment done just before the Chinese New Year festivities!

Though, finally, here are my thoughts about it! Fret not, I had everything jotted down post-facial so most points were written fresh-from-the-oven and I’m not trying to recall a 2 month ago facial experience here.

Now with that long essay, I shall finally got to the point!

The Liquid Laser Treatment –

With my recent trip down, I got to learn about and also try out their Liquid Laser range of products along with the complementing Jet PR3 Facial.

Since I am still collecting my thoughts for a proper entry about their Liquid Laser products (because skincare reviews can be so tricky sometimes) I will first share this skin-prepping treatment and my thoughts about how it would help introduce you to the Liquid Laser skincare range.

For my treatment, I dropped by the Wheelock branch and after a short presentation about some key points of the Liquid Laser treatment, I was whisked away to the Jet Concepts treatment rooms to begin.

I was honestly quite excited (for the end product) and a little apprehensive because, as I had mentioned, comfort isn’t really what they are selling at Jet Concepts.

Most of the treatments aren’t exactly painful but you’re not coming here to zone out and relax (entirely) either.

A large part of your experience depends on your treshold for discomfort and weird but let’s just say that with a whole bunch of cool machines that do various different, and odd, functions, you never really know what you’re getting yourself into!

STEP 1 – Makeup Removal

The first step, of course was to have my makeup removed!

This is prior that, of course.

Step 2 – Aromatic Relaxation

Just before beginning, the therapist performed an aroma-relaxation technique with peppermint oil. It was a nice touch given that Jet Concepts isn’t focused on providing a spa-approach.

STEP 3 – The Jet Stream Cleanse

After your skin is cleansed of all impurities on the surface and you’re nicely settled, the Jet PR3 Facial starts proper with the Jet Stream machine.

An equipment hailing from Israel, and exclusively available at Jet Concepts, the Jet Stream clears your skin cells from blockages by sweeping up sebum, dead skin cells and dirt from both the surface of the skin and also deep within.

I don’t have a shot of this in progress but what it does is blasts a (controlled and fine) jet of water on your skin while a vacuum sucks that water back up almost instantly.

How this helps is that the fine stream of water will stimulate and cleanse the surface of your skin as well as rinse through the initial layers of the epidermis, thus ridding it of any dirt and dead skin build up.

You will be left with skin that is properly purified and cleansed, prepped to better absorb products. The exfoliation process also helps to clean out some white / black heads causing your pores to look a little more refined and cleansed as well.

Naturally your skin will look and feel a lot smoother immedaitely after this step.

STEP 4 – The Dual Ray Light Stimulation

After cleaning your skin out, it’s time to jolt your skin cells awake!

We have our sluggish moments and days, that goes the same for our skin cells as well and sluggish skin cells would interfere with the absorption of products as well as inevitably slow cell renewal down. So what this step does is to perk those cells up again, like a little wake up zap (that is non-invasive and painless – though I can’t say the same for itty bitty facial hairs!)

One way to do that is via light therapy.

Typically different rays of light work different wonders on your skin and to expose yourself to Red Light and also Infrared Light, one would have to ‘light-tan’ yourself twice – first with the Red Light equipment then again with the Infrared Light equipment.

However, here at Jet Concepts, they have a unique Jet Dual Ray machine (that is again, unique to Jet Concepts) that allows you to expose yourself to both Red Light and Infrared Light at the same time. This shortens the procedure down and doesn’t compromise on the results either!

The purpose of using these select two lights would be because Red Light helps fuel your cells with essential energy (to repair themselves and go about happy / healthy cell activities) while Infrared Light heals the skin and reduces any inflammation (almost like pacifying your skin after this treatment).

In terms of how this treatment felt, it was honestly quite okay and the only ‘scary’ bit would be the frying of facial hair which could cause some alarm but it isn’t painful (at least not to me) and I didn’t feel any discomfort on my skin otherwise.

There is certainly no horribly scary crackling or bright zap of light on the skin, it’s a more calm and toned down version of the IPL, that’s for sure. Not startling at all, I assure you.

I don’t want to go on too long on this point but by ‘waking’ your skin cells up, it also helps to improve the radiance and overall complexion of your skin, given that your skin cells are now all up and about, getting their job done.

STEP 5 – Laying on the Liquid Laser Essence

After your skin is nicely prepped – cleansed and jolted awake – the therapist will then massage on the Liquid Laser Essence.

This Liquid Laser Essence is the most potent combination of the active ingredients found in the Liquid Laser range and this product alone isn’t available for purchase (given how packed with awesome it is).

It is used within the Jet PR3 Facial as a way to kick-start your journey with the Liquid Laser range and deliver a nice / potent dose of skin-healing, hydrating and skin-refining properties.

Right After the Facial (Half-face Comparison)

At Jet Concepts the therapists typically work on one half of your face first so you can have a direct comparison with some of the immediate effects of the treatments.

I tried to snap it but I’m afraid, in photos, it doesn’t look all that much different. Probably due to the quality and lighting conditions, but in person I did notice the post-facial side of my face being a lot smoother, cleaner, radiant and more supple.

Here are some shots (taken on my mobile) of my skin right after the facial was done.

I really liked how clean and flushed my skin looked that I didn’t mind walking about Orchard without foundation after. The only stitch of makeup I had on was brows and some lipstick for color, so I don’t look like I wandered to town after I woke up – bedhead, bareskin and all.

The Jet PR3 Facial is meant to be accompanied with the use of the Liquid Laser Serum and Cream so I was quite religious in that and immediately kick started my skincare regimen that night.

Though my thoughts about the skincare products will be for another post. In the meanwhile let me wrap up my thoughts about the Jet PR3 Facial process with some really right-smack close up shots of my face looking less than perfect, hurhur.

My Thoughts After the Facial… (Face Comparison Shots)

I took a snap shot of my face the night before the facial procedure because my skin was going through some tough times, breaking out a little with a little dullness and some clogged pores on certain parts of my face.

I believe I was going through a bit of a hormonal shift at that point too (no no, not pregs) hence my skin acting up.

Before the Facial

Right after the facial session, I got home and snapped some proper pictures (with my camera) for a better comparison

The Night After

While I had a little redness and flush from the treatment, my skin was looking good overall with a nice radiant glow to. It was looking healthier and importantly, felt a lot cleaner.

It looks a tad shiny due to me snapping these after a journey home while I had a rich essence slicked on, as opposed to the ‘night before’ photo where I was fresh-faced from a wash.

After the facial, I’ve noticed that my skin no longer had a dull and tired complexion to it, in turn making me appear a lot more rejuvenated and well-rested as well!

Since the Jet PR3 Facial is suppose to ignite continual skin renewal and regeneration for up to a month, your skin is suppose to carry and improve its radiant glow gradually through the following days after the facial.

To (somewhat) showcase that, I have snapped some pictures of my skin about 3 days after my facial session.

3 Days After

My skin is still looking a little flushed from the exfoliation (my skin is a little sensitive that way) but it just appears red and I don’t have any irritation due to that. Though what is evident is the soft glow my skin has along with how smooth and refined the surface of it appears to be.

I have foundation on in the shots below but I didn’t use any skin refining base and I’m amazed at how smooth the foundation goes on.

Wrapping this incredibly long entry up, I think that it was a good idea for Jet Concepts to market a facial session that helps prep their consumer’s skin before they pick up a new range of products because sometimes when we use a certain range of items and hardly see an effect, we attribute it to the product being ineffective when, for all we know, it could just be our skin needing a little prep and cleanse for the product to truly penetrate the surface and unleash its ingredients!

As with my former experience with Jet Concepts, I left with an immediately improved complexion, cleaner and better skin over the course of just 1 session alone.

They certainly do live up to what I remember them to be from my previous encounter – effective and immediate results in minimal time (and sessions)!
