When foreigners (I know personally) find out that I’m a Filipina, I’m always asked what’s the best thing about living in the Philippines. I always snap with pride three things: the food, our pristine beaches, and the variety of beauty treatments nearly everyone has access to. While I love living abroad where a lot of things seem to be more functional and efficient (ie. shopping returns, transport system, tax filing, etc.), I don’t know if I’m quite ready to give up my homegrown vanity. It’s no secret that I get RF treatments on my face twice a month and diamond peels on the weeks in between the last 4 years or so. These treatments help me get the most millage out of my skin care and has really been instrumental destressing me week over week in this urban jungle called Metro Manila.
For those who like me, cannot live without these daily luxuries, you must add the latest treatment from Shiseido called V-Lift Cryo Facial. Side by side with friends from the media and select VIPs, I had the chance to try it in the 3-day Shiseido Beauty Suite at the Raffles Residences.

Can you almost smell the fresh sheets and light floral notes? <3
