Pampering Elemental Herbology Facial @ Sccube

Facial at Sccube the Apothecary Pampering Elemental Herbology Facial @ Sccube

It’s been about two months since my last facial and earlier this week, I went for a Elemental Herbology Facial, complimentary from Sccube the Apothecary located at #03-19A, The Centrepoint. I do get invites for facials on and off but I usually turn them down or arrange for guest reviewers to go in my place instead. However, I was interested to try this particular one myself because it’s a manual lymphatic drainage treatment using a natural range of products and I wanted to see how different it is from my usual facial. Anyhow, it’s been awhile since I last reviewed a facial and I thought I can share my experience in a slightly different format this round.

When I was invited to a complimentary body massage at St. Gregory in Park Royal Hotel, I wondered if it was the same spa I used to visit for my Javanese facial about nine years ago. It was strange that I am familiar with the name because of their Tui Na Massage my husband had tried but had actually clean forgotten that this used to be the fitness club we got our gym fix for about a year then! It was only when I took a lift up the fourth level of the hotel that I had a sense of dejavu walking down the long corridor to get to the spa. A nice warmth feeling I must add because it reminded me of my carefree life then!

~ When I learnt that Bud Cosmetics started offering facial services using organic products at their new store in Mandarin Gallery recently, I was eager to feature their new service. So I arranged for Hazel of Hazelnutt House to have a complimentary session and to review it for Viva Woman. Following is her account. Update: Get $20 off any facial treatment booked for the month of May; just state you’re a reader of Viva Woman when you make your appointment. ~
