Korean Scrub Treatments with Mint Day Spa and Salon

My Saturday was all about pampering myself!
How happy I was, coz I had a chance to get a treatment at Mint Day Spa and Salon. The other day I got an invitation from Mint Day Spa and Salon owner, Ms. Delphine. I would get their specialty treatment, the Korean scrub.
Yes, Korean. This is the secret of Korean women's healthy, smooth and bright skin! I know we are all envy with their beautiful skin.

Actually, I ever read before on about this Korean scrub. So I was so excited that the subject of the article I read the other time, contacted me. hohoo..

My appointment was yesterday at 13.30. The address of the spa is at Jl. Wahid Hasyim no. 65. The building is very easy to spot because the location is in the side of main road and very close from Sarinah.

Mint Day Spa and Salon is at the second floor of the building. First time the lift door opens, you will see this logo right in front of you.

This is the reception area. I told them about my appointment, and they guide me to the treatment room. 

Here, you will be served by one dedicated therapist. Oh and by the way, this Korean Spa treatments are only for women, so the therapists also all women. 

My Korean Spa treatment consist with three process: Sauna, Scrub and Massage.

So, here the preparation area before treatments.

Lockers to keep your belongings and clothes.

These are things on the dressing table. They provide hairdryer, in case you need to wash your hair after treatments.

This was my outfit for treatment. Just like in other spa or salon, you can change your clothes with this strapless dress and take off your underwear.

Please mind my selfie of the day. I didn't wear my makeup at all that day. I saw there was no use to wear at all when I would get sweat and wet anyway.

Changing room

Aisle to treatment rooms

So, the beginning of the journey to beautiful skin -> SAUNA.
Steam your body inside Sauna can makes your body relax, smoothen the skin and open skin pores.

I took this process for about 20 minutes. I don't easily get sweating. That's why I was pretty long being in there xp

Okay, my first process was finished.

Next, Scrubbing process! the process I had been waiting for^^
The room was all wet from the floor to the bed. Well, I was quite surprised with this condition. But this is the unique point of the treatment.

The therapist asked me to take off my strapless dress. I was supposed to took of my panties too, because in the end, it was all wet! I was too shy took that off, so I just wore it. How can I let people I don't know see me all naked? lol.

The exfoliation starts with a special Korean scrub pad to remove dead skin cells. The pad were so rough, so the therapist just use that only without any scrub cream to exfoliate my full body.

There were so many dead skin cells after the scrub. I didn't where all of it came from O,o. After the scrub scrub scrub, I was given body lotion scrub to replenish skin with nutrients and I got my body massaged with milk to regenerate collagen production.

All process were so nice. I enjoyed every step^^

My skin does smoother but I don't know if my skin gets brighter. Gotta ask my BF later on ;D

In addition to Spa treatments, Mint also have salon with various service like eye lash extention, waxing, full body massages and more.

This Spa is really really worth to try out. Definitely will come back here when I have the time. So happy!^.^

When in March

Today is the third day of April^^ As usual, time flies so fast. There were some of nice things in March and I hope April will does the same for me. kkk~ To reminisce March, let me share you few of my instagram pics here.

Done watching this K-drama, "You Who Came From the Stars". So sad finally it's over, but gladly the drama has its happy ending (:
I like Cheon Song Yi who keeps me laugh and laugh all the time. She's so silly, very silly compares to Do Min Joon who is so mature and cool. That's why they complete each other ^^

Went for my BF's friend wedding. So glad that once in a while I can put my make up on and dress up. Best feeling for a girl to look nice! ;)

Awh. Brown and Cony mug. Too cute to resist, and I got the low price also! (psstt.. I bought them at mini market. teheeee!x3

This is my flazz card of happiness! Been wanting this so much and already hunt for a moment. Then a help showed up. My friend's hubby found where the card was sold and bought it for me (of course I paid back). It's Spring in Japan and so happy to have it in a card. hohoo Got this snack and also Tokyo Banana from BF's uncle. So glad! Love everything from Japan. The snacks are marvellous, yummy, cute, pretty packaging. Just love it. Dang! xD

This one is a mini series starring Lee Gi Kwang (B2ST) and Kim Hye Ji. The story represents every girl's dream, have a boyfriend from a famous boyband. I think the fact dating a famous boyfriend is not that fancy as girls always thinking about. Just like this story. I love one quote of this drama that the girl said: "You cannot make another happy just with your love. There are times when one must parting to give the best to each other" I know this feeling and this quote is awakening me and I think this is really true.

Weekend Day Out

Yes, I'm still alive. And I am now marking my existence, here. hehe ^^

Won't post beauty related this time. I'm in the mood of showing my hang out pics ;)

Like you have already know that PIK or Pantai Indah Kapuk is well known by its culinary places. I wanted to photo hunt there, but still couldn't find the spot I wanted, so le BF and I decided to just ate dessert.

Been eyeing SumoBoo. My friends are posting their pics at SumoBoo everywhere, so I became very curious about it.

The waiting list at SumoBoo were very long. The shop is so crowded with people. Made me curious even more. hehe..

While waiting, I went accross the street and had my picture taken outside Locale. So western and unique place to hang out, right? ^^

Maybe next time I will try to eat here.

Ta ra raammm..

SumoBoo. I'm in x3

This is what I ate. Boo! Strawberry Kakigori. Love the cute animal shape ice. 
(Too bad I didn't take a pic of my BF's order)

This Kakigori is just a simple crushed ice with strawberry jam. 

Couldn't get enough taking pics with this boo!
Oh, NO!!

Well, I that was my weekend 2 weeks ago. Can't wait for the other pleasant weekends to come. Tehhee!

Till next time.

OVALE Facial Mask Teh Hitam (Black Green Tea Powder) Review

Tomorrow I will be bridesmaid to my ex boarding house friend.
I realized that I need more makeup as I want to do my makeup myself. But I don't have much time to shopping. Shoot! I should bought them at as they have many beauty products variant. And it free ships nationwide too. Weww.. After this I have to place my order at Zalora!

Well,  I'm so happy and honored to be part of her best moment. I hope I can perform well. This is why I pampered myself today by putting facial mask :3

I am a facial mask addict.

I love trying various mask types. Peel off, wash off, sheet mask. Gosh! Thank you for everyone who invented them. When my skin feels tired and dull, putting mask always be the greatest pleasure to it. I feel refresh and brighter (:

Talk about trying various masks, there is another type that I was really curious to try. The powder type. OVALE already produced its clay mask (I've tried it), next they produces powder facial mask.
It comes in two flavor, black tea and pearl. But now I'm gonna review the black tea first.

The black tea powder mask helps to treat acne skin.
Let's se what it's stated on the packaging.

Ovale Powder Mask Black Tea helps to cleanse, keeps skin tightness and helps in removing dead skin cells. Enriched with Black Tea Extract help to treat acne skin. Leave your skin feel fresh, soft and health. Mix mask powder with water. Apply to clean, dry face and neck, avoiding eyes and lips area. Leave dry for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water thoroughly.

Oryza Sativa (Seed) Powder, Corn (Zea Mays) Starch, TalcDiatomaceous Earth, Calcium Sulfate, Sodium Alginate, Tetrasodium pyrophosphate, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Maltodextrin, Alcohol Denat, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Powder, Methylparaben, Fragance.

The powder  

Yeyy, DIY making facial mask ^^

Please don't pour so much water. It won't be a paste then.

I think I poured too much water..
The paste is so soft. Love it!!

On my way to become a statue... O.o

The before after pic. Not so much different. But if you see closer, my darkness and redness have calmed down a bit. my face appears brighter too (:

My thought:

I like the idea of powder mask. If you have lots of time at home and love something DIYs, you could try this.
But if you are a busy person and like things practical, use sheet mask. I also prefer this over the other mask types. 

But for this OVALE powder mask alone, it would say.. I like it. The texture is soft, smells so good, and refresh my skin. It feels cool when I applied and waited it to dry.

I want to repurchase again, but the talc and methylparaben are kind of scared me. What do you think?
