Disclaimer: Sponsored. Things I am going to share with you guys are my personal opinion based on my
I was invited by Hazel to visit Glomax Aesthetics to try one of their facial treatment. I was sceptical at
first because the first time I went for facial was not a good one, not the result but the experience. It was
few years back, 5 years a go to be exact. It was painful and I didn't want to go for any facials after that.
But when I received the invite from Hazel, I straight away read some reviews online. Actually, I've
seen their Facebook Page already before they even invited me. They mainly promote their award
winning facial treatment for acne prone skin. Since I am having a bad breakout, I thought of giving it a
try. So I prepared myself already. Although Hazel told me that it is a non-obligatory blog review, I still
think that it is worth the blog.
Glomax Aesthetics - The Face Artistry, is located at Soho 2, 12 Eu Tong Sen Street in Clarke Quay,
next to The Central Mall.
"Glomax is everything a minimalist soho spa stands for: expertise, customization, modernity and
privacy. The commitment to your skin deserves only the best.
At GLOMAX Aesthetics - The Face Artistry, expect a superlative collection of ultimate face and body
treatments boosted with award-winning aesthetics machines and celebrity skincare products. Our
treatments are specially crafted for instantaneous results and meticulously executed by a team of
highly-trained beauty masters." - Source: Glomax
Glomax is located on the 6th floor of the building. Upon stepping in, I was welcomed by Pik San.
Although the place is small in size and with office-style set up, it is clean and cozy.
Before the treatment, Pik San did a 1 to 1 consultation to access my skin condition and lifestyle before
suggesting the right treatment for me. I was told that I have a very oily skin though I was wearing make
up and my face was seriously oily, maybe it was because of PMS. She also talked about how acne is
formed but I am not going to talk about it here, it will be a long boring post. To finish up the
consultation, she decided that I have to go for their award winning, Intensive Acne Medic Treatment.
Just by hearing the name "Intensive" I knew it was a painful process -____-
I mentioned earlier that the place has an "office-setting" but to my surprise, the environment in the
treatment room is very far compared to the consultation area. The room has a nice soothing scent and a
calming soft music playing in the background.
This is my with make up on. You can actually the pimple in my forehead and below my right cheek.
The rest are hiding behind my makeup. You'll see them (pimples/acne scars) later.
Face with make up before treatment
Before Pik San started the treatment, she removed my make up first with a cleansing milk followed by a
cleansing gel. She told me that Milk Cleanser is better for my skin type. I forgot to take a picture after
she removed it but Glomax took some using their camera to post it online. OH MY GEE!
I actually though Pik San will do the treatment for me but she was replaced by Evon, the director and
founder of Glomax Aesthetics. Imagine your treatment being done by the owner itself. The first step
was the Sonic Cleansing using a spatula -like handheld device to remove whiteheads, without any
pain. My skin was dramatically smooth after.
After which, extraction manually was done to get rid of the impurities embedded deep within. I asked
her if it'll be super painful and without any hesitation she replied YES. I won't deny that it was seriously
painful. I was crying while Evon was extracting the impurities. After the extraction I looked at my face
and it was hella red and some were bleeding. But she told me that it was pretty normal so I didn't mind.
PS: My friend Nicah, told me that she could actually hear me in the consultation area screaming while
doing the extraction.
Face after the extraction
After the extraction, Evon used a high frequency machine to kill the bacteria around the surface of my
skin. I felt a slight tingling sensation but it was bearable. Kinda pain when it touched the area that has
High Frequency Machine
Followed by an IPL. Evon applied a generous amount of a cold protective gel before she starts the IPL
- Intense Pulse Light. It is to rebalance the sebum level. I felt a warm shots and seen a bright light
though I my eyes were closed and covered.
IPL - Intense Pulse Light
The last step was a cooling mask. My favourite step of all. It was very cooling and gentle but not a
pleasant look. I look scary though. It felt really nice and I nearly doze off too. I can't remember if Evon
or Pik San was doing the final application of moisturizer, serum and sun block.
With Evon, the Director and Founder of Glomax Aesthetics
Overall, I am happy with the result. My face seems to be smooth, soft and less bumpy. But I left the
place with a red-ish face because of the extraction I believe. Skin tone appeared to be brighter and more
even. I will update my skin on my facebook page/twitter/instagram. I am actually planning on booking
my next appointment in my own expense since I am loving the result already. I'm on my 2nd week
now and so far, no pimples yet. I am currently dealing with my post acne scars.
Bare face after treatment. Sore and red-ish.

I had an appointment at Glomax Aesthetics last week, Friday. I will post a separate post about my experience there. I asked Nicah if she could come with me. I just wore this comfy romper from Alescere, mtach it up with a black tote bag from VS and a black with gold sandals from Lovelyshoes. After my appointment, we went to Lucky Plaza to have our lunch. We chitchat and stuff like that while on our way. We talked about randoms stuffs, from how we met to what we are now. We met 7 years ago. We were not close that time. As in, we don't really go out. Fast forward, we went to the same school. In fact, she was the one who accompanied me in my first day in MDIS last year. So that's how it started again. This is our first day out for 7 years. It was indeed awesome. I owe her a date for going with me and for waiting for 2 hours while I was doing my treatment. Below is her OOTD. Forgive us for the quality of our photos. It was impromptu shoot and there was no sun that time! It was sunset actually.

Had an awesome WednesDate with my niece. It has been more than 3 years since we last see each other. That was actually the first time we met if I am not wrong and met her for the second time. I was so surprised when she whatsapp-ed me. So i asked her out. We went to NEX. It was my first time going to the mall and OH-MY-GOSHHHH, that mall is not my thing, ever! The was seriously boring. Nothing special about it but we made it a little special. We ate at Sogurt. It was indeed, the best flavoured yogurt. After that, we went to the sky park of the mall to take some shots for my OOTD. It was seriously scorching hot! I just had to bear with it. Then we felt it was really hot so we went in again and my niece decided to go for a "Fish Spa". OMG our experience was so hilarious. We kept giggling while dipping our feet in the pool with full of fishes. I actually thought that it would be the small ones but heck, the fishes were in medium size. It was seriously ticklish. We went for a 30 minutes fish spa for $15. Not bad, uh! I liked it! I would like to bring my parents and boyfriend to experience it if they haven't tried it. It was actually good. My feet felt super soft after the spa. I think it was better than a normal foot spa. I'd search for a better place that has Fish Spa, I am not going back to NEX :/ I find it boring there. So anyway, after the spa we got hungry again so we ate Chinese food and then we bid our farewell. Hoping to see her this Friday or some other time.

Another over due post. Notice my long hair there. I missed it so much. Can't wait to have it again.
Anyhoo, I have been going out a lot lately. Hooray! I finally have social life HAHA! A good way to
unwind, too. I feel stress past few days. I couldn't get enough sleep. Insomnia every night :/. I always
fall asleep after 2AM and will keep waking up. You know that feeling when, your eyes are close,
asleep, but your mind is awake. Yes, that is exactly what I feel every night. I hate it so much. I wish
I had a power button where I could just switched off my mind and stop thinking of random thoughts.
How I wish, uh.
One thing I would like to share you guys about this outfit is, this is my boyfriend's favourite. Bringing
my outfit into the next level where I wore a hat. Personally, I don't really like wearing hats. It flattens
my hair. But I kinda feel like "Bruno Mars" in this outfit. A girl version.

Met a Ate Maritess for the first time and it felt like we already knew each other for decades. Okay wait,
maybe years? It wasn't awkward when we met. But wait, let me tell you how we came to know each
other. Thanks to instagram for allowing me to meet new friends with the same interest. She followed
me on instagram and commented on my photo. Then the conversation started till we exchange phone
numbers. To make the long story short, we decided to meet and get to know more each other. She came
to my place to meet my parents and then we headed to Changi City Point in Expo. We ate at Eggs &
Berries. I didn't know Dana is working there. So anyhoo, we ordered two different types of Egg
Benedict dish and a truffle fries. OMG! The foods were totally nice and I fell in love with the place. I
really love design on the wall. That's the design I have been wanting for my room. Not exactly like that
but the idea of it. So while we were eating, we continued chatting. It was nice to know that we have the
same interest, likes, etc. She's an IT and so am I. She loves fashion and food like I do. I think we are
really fated to be friends. Really thanks to Instagram for the opportunity like this. After eating we went
to the rooftop of the mall to take some OOTD shots. You can really say we love taking photos. We
both have our own handy dandy camera. Same brand and same line. OMG really fated. Moving on,
we went to the rooftop and saw this nice view and we took advantage of it. We took lots of pictures
but here are my favourite shots. Enjoy!
