The Bioessence Experience

Last April, I received a text that surprised me. It was an invitation from Bioessence, West Avenue, offering me a free treatment of one of the following - facial cleansing, 30 minute massage, painless wart removal or diamond peel. According to the text, a friend referred me to their establishment so that's why they texted me. At first I thought it wasn't real or someone was posing or scamming me or something. But then Jen also got a similar text and then we remembered one of our blogger friends - Gel - just recently went to Bioessence. Thanks Gel for referring us coz then I wouldn't have known how amazing Bioessence can be!

When we arrived, Me and Jen were pleasantly greeted with the wonderful Biosessence staff. I immediately took a liking to the place. Maybe it was the wonderful soothing aroma or the soft relaxing music. But definitely the atmosphere also gave a posh aura and had an air that you are definitely in the right hands with the people in the room. Miss Chiez was all smiles as she toured us around the place and answered our questions. Bioessence has been around for several years already and their West Ave. branch has around more or less 20 rooms already. They had different areas for Men and Women clients.  They also had different areas for skin, slimming, and spa treatments. Here's a quick tour of the place:

Single Massage Room

A skin treatment room for facials etc.
Sauna Room for Slimming Treatment
The very luxurious Executive  Room good for two.
You can even change the lighting to suit your mood!
The Executive room has a JACUZZI (oh yeah!) coz in one of the packages
you can have a Queen of Sheba Treatment which is a Bath Milk Treatment.
Also, the room has its own shower. So you get the full pampered treatment here!
Sosyal kung sosyal! 
Hanging out at the 2nd floor lounge that has comfy couches and TV for those who are waiting.
Also at the 2nd floor is another station where the products of your treatment are  mixed specifically for you after  you are done with the skin consultation.

After the tour, I indeed had my skin consultation. Before you have any treatments at BIoessence, a skin consultation has to be made first to check what are the problem areas that needs to be addressed. Ms. Chiez brought me to the "consultation" room where she had an "apparatus" to check the condition of my skin. I wasn't able to take photos (coz obviously I was being "checked" at that moment.. hehe) but she was able to confirm what I had already known about my face - very oily, acne, scars, and dark spots. Like what I've mentioned in my previous post, I'm currently in a battle against acne/pimples. So this was like leveling up in the steps that I was taking to eliminate it. So this Biosessence experience surely was a timely thing. After confirming my skin condition, Miss Chiez highly recommended the Anti-Acne Treatment - Purifying Facial which costs around Php 1,000. I decided to not take that treatment right now but first try the free treatment that they were offering. Me and Jen were then offered not only the Regular Facial treatment (Php 350) for free but also the Diamond Peel (P 1,200). I didn't expect this additional treat so I was very happy when they did. I've always wanted to try a Diamond Peel treatment so I looked forward to it.

The Bioessence Regular Facial
So I first had the Regular Facial Treatment. I will be honest and say that it was painful. I do have low tolerance to pain though and have several deep seated dirt and acne so it might not be as painful for others. So after cleaning my face, the therapist started to remove the nasty stuff on my face. I will spare you the details but let's just say more than 15 "problem" areas were dealt with. Thank you God! 

That's a happy face right there. Yes I know it was a bloody battle. Hehe.
But it was worth all the pain. I swear! I felt.. CLEAN! Haha.
Like a whole lot of junk was cleared off my face.
Don't worry, they treated the bloody areas after. 
After the pricking process, they proceeded to the DIAMOND PEEL process. For the Diamond Peel, they used a machine that had what looked and sounded like a tiny vacuum in a pen-like instrument. My therapist assured me that my face will become brighter and smoother after this process because all my DEAD SKIN CELLS will be removed from my face. Now that sounded like an exciting process. 

The Diamond Peel "pen" was buzzing and vibrating on my face but it wasn't irritating at all.
I could feel it glide on my face and I remembered feeling excited that my face was gonna be a whole lot smoother thanks to Bioessence Diamond Peel Treatment.

A very happy, brighter, and smoother face! Yay!
No, that isn't dandruff on my shoulder.
That's the dead skin cells that were removed from my face. 
The treatment ended with a facial that helped soothe my face and tighten my pores. It was on my face for 15 minutes. Then Vitamin C cream was administered with wonderful face massage as well. The whole treatment was more than an hour but it was all worth it! My battle against Acne/Pimples is getting fiercer and I got Bioessence to thank for helping me in this area. 

Thank you Miss Chiez and BIOESSENCE for the Free Treatments and giving us a
After the whole treatment, Ms. Chiez recommended that I should get their Sulfur Soap that will help dry up the pimples and lessen the oiliness of my face. Of course removing the oily quality means that I have to also make sure that I balance it out with moisturizers. She highly recommended that I buy and use their Vitamin C concentrate moisturizer. It was tempting but still I had lots of moisturizers at home so I declined on that and bought the Sulfur Soap for 100+ (forgot the price) instead. I'm currently using it and loving it!
