Skin 101 (Diamond Peel, Facial, Pimple Injection): Review + Giveaway Winner!!!

I don't know if you guys are aware but I've been struggling with breakouts recently. One of the main culprits would be my hormones but another notable cause would have to be my encounter with Belo AcnePro. I've stopped the said product for about one month now and my skin hasn't broken out as much although there are still few zits here and there. You may have read about my love relationship with THEFACESHOP's Clean Face Clear Away Spot. And just as I said in that post, that small bottle is a container of miracle skin goodness. However, topical products such as these are sometimes not enough. I have to get a facial cleaning to help clear up the skin.

Personally, I've tried so many options out there. At first, I was a loyal patient to a local dermatologist and she was the one doing all the extractions needed. The problem, however, was the cost. Having to deal with professional fee and all the medications, my weekly routine has become too expensive for my budget. I, then, decided to try out different facial spas. I've tried Flawless, Let's Face It, Ysa's Spa and Skin 101. I can talk about my experience with each of them but that would take forever to write so I'm just opting to write about one. (If you want me to write about the other facial centers, just comment down below.)

For about a year now, I've been a loyal customer to Skin 101, thanks to its affordable packages and the nice staff in SM Muntinlupa. My very first encounter with Skin 101 wasn't all that exciting. I was just roaming around the center with a friend when I decided to get a pimple injection on a whim. A few days before that, I noticed a cystic acne forming around my lip area. It was so big and painful that smiling was actually a form of torture on my part. Any movement done by my lips, speaking included, made the spot throb with pain. While looking through the different shops, I confessed my dilemma to my friend (who I was shopping with) and asked her if I could just drop by a skin clinic for a quick remedy. Being a good friend that she is (Hi Vei!), she agreed.

I knew what I wanted and needed-- pimple injection! I've been getting them from Flawless before so the concept isn't really anything new. The only problem I had then was the fact that there were only limited skin clinics around the place and Flawless was not included in them. I struggled to choose where to get it done but not all clinics offer pimple injections. To my delight, when I went into Skin 101, they told me they had it.

In Flawless, it costs about PHP100 per injection so I was expecting the price to be within that range but lo and behold! It is so much cheaper in Skin 101! For the same price, you get to have 3 injections. However, if you just want one spot to be treated, then they'd charge you PHP50. Not as big savings compared to the 3 shots package but it is still half the price of one injection in Flawless! After the treatment, they informed me that if, by chance, the acne does not subside within 3 days, I can go back for a follow-up injection for free! Now that's quality service right there! Honestly, though, I've never gone back for a follow-up injection because they always subside within 3 days. :)

Just to try it out, I went back for an Acne Control Facial. But after some time, I decided to go with their diamond peel package (PHP1000 for 2 sessions/ Buy 1 Take 1). Ever since then, I've been getting this treatment on a regular basis. During the days when my skin is just plainly covered with blemishes, I try to go back every two weeks or so. But if the situation isn't that bad, I go every month.

Needless to say, I switched to Skin 101 and haven't felt the need to go back or switch to another skin clinic ever since. To sum it up, for more than a year now, I've been extremely satisfied with their services. In fact, I just availed of their diamond peel (with glycolic) plus facial services two weeks ago and I plan to go back in a week or two from now. (Even my sister is on her way to the place right at this moment for her appointment.) I highly recommend this place! Let me know if you've tried Skin 101 before. :)

And for those who missed it, my Palty Bubble Hair Dye giveaway winner has been announced and the said winner has already responded. Just to let you know, here's the selection rafflecopter made for me.

For those who didn't win, don't be too sad as there will be more opportunities in the future. Who knows, I may be hosting one again soon, right? Anyway, thank you so much for showing your support in my giveaway and my blog/youtube/social media. It really means a lot to me and I hope I can keep in contact with you guys. I really love it when you guys leave comments or send me messages either through e-mail or social media. :) 
with love, Anna Luisa
