after 48 years

Finally I had a "me time"! I did regular visits to  spas and facial centers when I was single. It is my indulgence and at the same a form of rewarding myself. 

On the contrary, I haven't visited a spa and a facial center after I got pregnant!The last sessions I had was before my husband and I went on to our second honeymoon on April 2010 and that's when my daughter was conceived. 
I was glad to have found Metrodeal's offer way back in September, a Dermcare Diamond Peel session worth 900 and you get to pay only Php 250. I bought 2 vouchers, and was able to use them last November 30 at Dermcare SM City San Pablo. Apart from the Diamond Peel, I have paid additional Php 150 for anti ageing mask as shown in the picture below :


pardon me if I look like an old ghost!
the mummified look!

I was anxious before the treatment actually since I just left my daughter under the care of my 18-year old niece and 12-year old nephew strolling in the mall, but I took the risk because there's no better time to do it. I was imagining that they will just barge in the clinic with a wailing baby looking for her mommy and the session will be terminated (my daughter is not used of being separated from me for a long period of time, blame it to breastfeeding and being a stay at home mom!) I was sure lucky enough it didn't happen. I was able to survive not only the pricking (ouch!) but also my daughter's tantrum.
{Metrodeal had an offer again last week and I bought 2 vouchers again that I am planning to use early next year. Meanwhile, I am planning of when to use the other voucher I bought earlier, maybe before New Year.}

I had a great experience with the treatment-the exfoliation and the removal of my blackheads was simply amazing, after not having done it for more than a year. I am definitely looking forward for another session. Pink headband-courtesy of dermcare for Pink Fridays, white mask for Wednesday Whites and the entire experience is a Mommy Moment!

Wow Mommy Icar, this is such a good deal and definitely a mommy moment for you! I love indulging in spas too however could only afford it there, it's quite expensive here and way out of my budget! I missed the painful picking hahaha!

Enjoy the holidays!
