Topbeauté Facial Review

A very much needed facial session. All thanks to my girl Jean who invited me along to tryout Topbeauté's facial session. Topbeauté is located at Kota Damansara, same row as Alliance Bank, it was my first visit to the beauty salon, I'm quite excited as I haven't done facial for months! Can't imagine how dirty it is all my facial pores are. 



Topbeauté's yellow signboard, very eye-catching!





When I saw the signboard, I have a tiny bit of doubts, but then when we walk nearer to the beauty salon, totally change my point of view. I can't believe there hides such beautiful facial salon at this area. So don't be like me who judge the book by its cover. *feels ashamed*





Love the decorations to bits.





Everything was white in colour. All the furnitures and wall colours and decorations. I love how clean and pure feeling the interior designs of Topbeauté gave me. Made me feel relaxed while anticipating for a facial session, self-pampering time.




The reception area




Topbeauté uses Decléor products during their facial treatments. Decléor is a beauty skincare products from Paris, France which started 35 years ago. They are known for their plant-based treatments as well as aromatherapy which leaves the users feel relax, energized as well as radiant skin. Topbeauté adopts Decléor's beauty regime and uses them during facial treatments, there are a wide range of natural ingredients and different rituals to perform onto customers.




different treatments and pricing caters for all customers.
From basic facial to exclusive treatments, you name it!










Manager of Topbeauté - Ms. Chris




Before we start the facial session, the manager of Topbeauté - Chris gave both me and Jean a simple analyze of our skin conditions.



Okay, I got a bad skin day.




My skin are more to allergic type of skin, which can be easily seen from my no-makeup look: red veins all over my cheeks. Advice from Chris are I need to stop using skincare products with alcohol or chemicals in it because they will stimulate my allergy skin, and my skin needs water. Hydrate-type of skincare suits me well. Will take note of that from now on.





So right after we got our skin analysis, Chris show us around the dressing area and also treatment rooms. I really love all the florals and girlish themed of interior, so Victoria-era style.



Dressing table for customers to make-up and simple hairdo after facial session.








Loving the details of their interiors.
Inspired by natural beauty.






Consultation room




Normally, the consultation and skin analysis will be done in this cute and fuzzy consultation room while the customer having a foot jacuzzi massage and a cup of tea. Enjoying the rich tai tai lifestyle. Once in a while can be somewhat good for your body and soul.



We need to learn to love ourselves and our body as well.
This is what I think a facial session does for me, nourishing the inner and outer me at the same time. 






foot jacuzzi massage is love!





Then, me and Jean went into separate facial treatment rooms. This is how they look like:



First thing I noticed is MY BEDSHEETS!!! Hahahaha
I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get comfy in this bed. 





Change into the beauty salon provided outfit to easily perform the beauty regime around the neck and shoulder area.







A mandatory "before" kind of photo.
Even though you can't really see clearly lololol.






Here comes the facial treatment!



I guessed it's really been some time since I last did a facial, because I kinda forgot how painful can the extraction part be! I almost scream out due to the painful extraction part, but thank god they got rid of quite an amount of dirt from all the clogged pores as well as black heads and white heads, left my face clean and smooth after the extractions.



Remember that Topbeauté uses Decléor's products as well as their facial ritual? For some facial treatments of Topbeauté, they infused shoulder, neck and head massage into the facial treatments, the skin gets to absorb the nutrients of the plant-based products and also a relaxing step for the mind and soul. I love how they perform the beauty ritual with their hands, nourishes my skin with hydrating skincare products as well as soothes my tiring body at the same time.



The fresh yet soothing smell of Decléor products throughout the facial treatment session gives the whole atmosphere a natural touch. I love how natural the products smells like with smells like apple, rose, ylang ylang and more. The aroma of Decléor products used by Topbeauté really calms me down and give me a wonderful relaxing facial time. Not to mention they do massage their customers which is included in certain facial treatments packages. Really love their facial services to bits!




Thank you Topbeauté for a wonderful facial treatment session.



Topbeauté, which is also an authorized Decléor dealer, is located Kota Damansara. Do visit their beauty salon to find out more awesome facial treatments info that is suitable for you!

The Skintopic's 1st Anniversary

Supposedly to post this up at the end of September/early October but got pretty caught up due to travel/work/outstation work so here it is - Congratulations on your 1st Anniversary Skintopic! Got invited to witnessed the milestone celebration of Skintopic at their Pavilion outlet and love the au-naturale feeling of the outlet so much.





In conjunction of the anniversary celebration, the founder of the brand Linden Leaves that Skintopic retailing was invited to celebrate this memorable day. Brigit Blair, the founder, were there to share about her brand Linden Leaves and also let the guests participate in a D.I.Y Linden Leaves body oil activities!





All set for the D.I.Y session.





Finger foods were served to the guests before the start of the event. Although I couldn't remember much bout who did the catering for the tea session, but the food were very very nice and wide range of selection for the guests. Good sandwich and also desserts, yummy! Totally set our mood for welcoming what's coming next.




Brigit Blair, founder of Linden Leaves giving an opening speech.





For those who doesn't know much bout Skintopic, it is a privately-owned company which retails lifestyle and beauty products made in New Zealand. Skintopic is well-known for retailing natural skincare, bath, body, home fragrance and gift sets products that are free from harmful ingredients, parabens, artificial colours or preservatives. Their naturally made products are not tested on animals as well, which made these New Zealand products popular to the trend of go natural these days.





Just right after Ms. Brigit done giving her opening speech, she demonstrate to all the guests of how to make the best-selling Linden Leaves Aromatherapy Synergy Body Oil. Each and every bottle of Linden Leaves Aromatherapy Synergy Body Oil were purely hand-made in New Zealand and then deliver to their outlets worldwide.




It is not just a bottle of body oil, but a bottle of body oil made with full of love, attention and care.






Guests get to make the Aromatherapy Synergy Body Oil together with Ms. Brigit!
And they get to take back their creation! *I also wantttt!*



Too bad I was a bit shy at that time and couldn't really compete with other guests to get a spot to participate in the D.I.Y session, hence missed out the chance to create a bottle of Aromatherapy Synergy Body Oil of my own *sobs*. Anyway, the lavenders and roses really gives me a spiritual lift. All the fruits and floral that were used in Linden Leaves products are organic products which grow in New Zealand the land itself.



These looks yummy even though they are dried fruits already!








Organic oil, fruits and flowers were used to make each and every bottle of Linden Leaves body oil.






The celebration didn't ended just there. Ms. Brigit were asked to pick the three lucky guests during a lucky draw session and each of them get to take back home a Linden Leaves gift set worth more than RM400! *jelly max*





Pick me pleaseee~!






Congratulations to all these lucky winners!














Other than Linden Leaves, Skintopic also retailing brands from New Zealand like Olive & Tebe, Wild Ferns and Evolu. You can find all these natural made lifestyle and beauty products at five outlets of Skintopic around KL and Selangor area. Thank you Skintopic for the wonderful afternoon.
