Hello, I'm Agent S, a Shipping Manager and Mommy of Two.
I don't know whether I'm qualified to share my experience here because I don't spend a lot on cosmetics or on beauty; I'm already a Mommy and have never been a vain woman in the first place.
However, it bothers me that even at my age, I'm still suffering from acne. Maybe because my constitution is a bit weaker than normal people, I face very bad acne problem. At the start of last year, the problem somehow became worse. Not sure if its stress or what, my face started to look like this.
Disgusting right? I know.
My friends urged me to do something about it and one of them recommended me to Apple. My friend told me that Apple is pretty good, doesn't charge a lot and doesn't hardsell so I came down for a trial. The first time,I tried her oatmeal facial.
Although the pimples didn't go away immediately, I could see my acne started drying up. The second time I came back, she recommended me to try her signature Vitamin C facial because it is very good for acne-prone skin. From then on, I've stuck with her, alternating between oatmeal and vitamin C facial. After about 6 months, it looked like this.
A lot better although I still have pimples when my period is coming but I think it has improved quite a lot already.
That is why I take the train all the way from Clementi to Tanjong Pagar every month to let her do a facial.
If you are interested to find out what the more expensive Vitamin C facial include, below is my recent experience with Apple Queen Beauty.
This is how the treatment room in Apple Queen Beauty looks like.
Not very atas but it's okay. I don't really care about atas.
It's important for me that her facial works!
Apple always starts off the facial with a thorough cleansing.
After using facial foam, she used cotton wool to clean off the remaining residue.
Then, she began preparing for the extraction process.
She doesn't go straight to extraction. Apple always politely ask me to wait whiie sterilizing her equipment.
I like Apple's extraction a lot because she is very very thorough. Because I have many many pimples, she can spend 30 minutes to 45 minutes on my extraction alone.
Although there is some pain, she tries to minimize the pain and I am very grateful for it.
For cystic acne, she even uses a small pin to prick it so that the pus can be released.
I know that some people recommend leaving the pimple alone. However, I tried that a few times but it simply didn't work for me.
Instead the cystic acne just grew bigger and bigger inside until it becomes a ginormous pimple.
I'm very relieved that she is able to remove these acne cleanly for me without causing much scarring at all!
After extraction, she even helped me pluck my eyebrow to keep it neat.
So I don't have to spend money on my eyebrows!
We all know that after extraction, there may be some bacteria on the skin no matter what.
The photo is a little blur but Apple actually uses this machine to lightly touch the skin to disinfect the area.
There is a slight zzz sound but it doesn't actually hurt.
After disinfection, she took out this bottle. This bottle is the very expensive Hyaluronic Serum that gives this facial its high price. It is also the reason why it is so effective.
Apparently, the ingredients within this Hyaluronic Acid Serum helps to treat skin inflammation and prevent swelling at the same time. It also heals internal tissue, increase skin smoothness and reduce any further skin damage, very important especially after extraction.
She uses a lot of the bottle for me during this facial and leaves the rest for me to apply at home!
She first applies it to my skin
To ensure deep penetration, she uses an ultrasound machine and moved the machine in a circular motion.
Apple then moved on to my favourite part of the facial: massage.
Her technique is SO SO good, you've got to experience her for yourself before you would understand.
Seriously, I've NEVER experienced another therapist with facial massage skill as good as her!
10 out of 10 times, I fall asleep at this step.
That's however not the end of the facial.
The last step involves a face mask created by an aesthetic doctor in Korea. This mask is the Vitamin Gold C Mask. It includes natural fruit extract from blackberry, cranberry, strawberry and raspberry which helps to increase immunity for the skin. We can extract pimples but really, the best protection is the skin's protective layer. By nourishing the skin, it will not be so easy for pimples to grow and get inflamed
Adding the Collagen solution helps to more efficiently deliver the nutrition to the skin, creating synergy.
I slept with the face mask for about 20 minutes.
Here's how my face looks like after!
I'm so happy to see that the acne has now become smaller.
I know my skin is not perfect but it has improved so much since I came to Apple.
I had previously spent quite a lot of money elsewhere but saw no results so am very glad to find a gem like her.
Thank you Apple for saving my skin.
I hope that your price will remain affordable for us and that you will not become too busy for me to book you each month!
