Stress is a part of our daily lives. It can make you feel crazy, sad, or depressed. That is why, it is important to take a break from life and relax, even for a short while. There are several ways of relaxation… As for me, I read a book, listen to classical music, do yoga, go to the beach, or visit a spa for a facial or massage.
A few months back when I was in the Philippines, I had a deluxe pampering session at Skinlux Aesthetic Center. It was something that I was really looking forward to and now I’d like to share with all of you the most wonderful spa experience I have ever had.
Skinlux, founded by Mrs. Beena M. Go and Dra. Anna Marie S. Nolido, MD, offers several treatments to enhance our natural beauty, like laser, skin peeling, and skin whitening treatments. They use machines offering the latest technology in skincare and combines treatments with Nelly De Vuyst products, of which they are an exclusive distributor in the Philippines.
Skinlux Aesthetic Center is located at Level 3 of Greenhills Promenade. It’s not a place I regularly visit, being a South girl. But I’d gladly brave through Metro Manila traffic just to have a first class spa experience again. Haha!
So before I tell you all about the treatments I’ve had, let’s go on a tour first.
Their customer reception area is spacious and well-lit. While in here, you’re immediately exposed to their white walls, wooden flooring, and zen furnishings, which is echoed all throughout the center.
That’s my bag in there! Anyway, they have 2 seats for customers and a mini table where they place refreshments. The seats are very comfy and I love the round chairs which perfectly complement the surroundings.
On one side of the wall is a display of the Nelly De Vuyst products that they offer for various skin types. They even have a section for men’s products!
The shelf looks so neat and organized. I want one for my books and skincare products too. 😛
If you’d like to host an event (e.g. press conference, party, etc.) at Skinlux Aesthetic Center, fret not for they have their own open venue.
In another wing, they have another lounge area for customer’s friends, family, chaperones, etc.
Now, let’s move on to the rooms. Basically, there are 4 single rooms (Revlite, Emax, Hydra, and Cautery), 1 couple room with own shower, 1 toilet, and 1 combined toilet & shower area.
If you’ve noticed, they named the rooms after the featured machines housed in each room. 🙂 I love how the rooms are spacious, unlike some of the spas that I’ve visited with cubicle-like rooms. They’re also clean and tastefully furnished. I particularly like the plant decors on the walls which add a nice pop of color to the otherwise plain white & gray rooms. All the rooms have sinks, so you’re assured that your therapist will always handle your skin with clean hands and tools. Then, of course, all the rooms have a shelf full of Nelly De Vuyst products.
Another lovely feature is their couple room. This is great for those who visit the center with a friend, family member, or partner. Both you and your companion will be afforded comfort and privacy, plus you get to chit chat while having services done. Great for bonding. 🙂 What’s nice here is that you also get your own shower room.
They also have another toilet.
And another room with combined shower and toilet.
I really appreciate having several clean toilets and showers available inside the center. FYI: Most of the time in Singapore, you’d have to go outside the spa center just to use the toilet. Toilets are shared with other customers in the mall. 🙁 So uncomfortable! Plus, you run the risk of several people seeing you in an unflattering state (messy hair / red and inflamed face / no makeup).
Aside from these rooms, they also have a consultation room where a dermatologist checks your skin condition and recommends appropriate treatments and post-treatment products.
Stepping inside Skinlux Aesthetic Center is like being in a first-class spa in a hotel! The whole ambiance speaks of luxury and comfort. And then there’s the relaxing music being played in the whole center. Indeed, they’ve created the perfect environment to relax and unwind while having beauty treatments. <3
Since this post is quite long already, watch out for my next post featuring all the services and treatments I had and my thoughts on them.
