Groupon Site: Ensogo / Deal Here

I bought this voucher because I heard from my sister in law that her officemates are fans of eyelash extensions! When I saw this deal on Ensogo, I immediately purchased for myself and for my sis in law!

We haven’t thought yet when to try it out when my MIL talked us into availing it ASAP since my daughter’s party is coming up. A day later! A Sunday. I panickedly called up branches nearest our location, one of which is the Greenhills Branch, only to be told that they are not included in the promo.  We have no choice but to go at the last minute in their Retiro Branch. Without reservations at all!

Good thing the branch was still open, and they accepted us. I think they were about to close already. We were the last 2 clients!

My sis in law went first, so I saw the whole procedure done. The specialist will ask you how long you want your lashes to be. They have 3 sizes. After choosing, you will be asked to lie down. Masking tape will be put under yourlower eyelids. The specialist had a box of lashes, black dye / ink working as the glue and a stick like tool for easy handling.

Eyes are closed while the procedure is being done. It doesn’t hurt at all. You can even sleep!

After glueing the lashes on, your face will face the electric fan! To dry out the glue I suppose!

The whole procedure was an hour, making you really sleepy. But you cannot sleep because you want to see the results already! Talk about being excited! Haha!

After the procedure, when you look in the mirror, you can really see the difference! Too bad I wasn’t able to take a before and after picture! I love the lashes till it fell one by one! It looked natural! I got so many compliments when I had the lashes on! I am thinking of having it done again! Soon I hope!

Now, let’s talk about the downside, you cannot wet the lashes as often as you would want to. The lifetime of the lashes depends on the glue.  If it gets wet often, tendency is it will be washed away! For example, if the right eye gets wet often than the left eye, the result will be, right eye has thinner or no lash extensions and left eye has thicker or more lash extensions!

Also, the lashes are a little stiff, when it touches your skin, it feels you really have something in your eyes.

Oh well, with beauty comes sacrifice!

5 out of 5 stars – for the reason that I got super duper many compliments!

 This is the ChillSPAce Nails Spa & Coolers Logo! I love this version! Looks really cool!

It was a quaint little corner in a condo along E Rodriguez Ave in Quezon City.

It was a little bit hard to find because their signage wasn’t outside their building! Instead, it was in the building next to them. We were dropped by my husband in that next building, so me and my mother in law had to walk under the scorching sun to go to the “right” building where ChillSPAce is really located. And we had to ask the guards also where it was because on that “right” building was a driveway.  Yun pala, you have to walk a little bit more to see the cute spa!

When we got inside, we were greeted by the receptionist warmly.  However, since it was a Saturday, they can’t accommodate us yet! We waited for 2 hours to have our nails done! Take note! We had a reservation!!!

While waiting, we tried the coolers, Taro for me and Green Tea for my MIL! Yummyness!

 Since there wasn’t anything to do, I checked their Menu!

I love how there is the word CHILL in the names of the treatments!

Our package was a combination of their treatments.

After hours of waiting, we finally got our seats inside!

My MIL took the leftmost seat, and I took the seat next to her, which is the color RED! I love RED!

I love the interior of the ChillSPAce spa. The seats are comfortable. The wall mural adds oomph to the spa!

There are clean magazines to read while having your nails done too!

After being seated, our feet were immediately soaked in the footspa machine. Bubbles up and the foot scrub begins! My feet felt very very clean after! They looked so white! And you can see all the dead skin on the towel! Good bye dead skin cells!

While I am having my foot scrub, somebody else was also doing my hand. Talk about service! But the hand spa wasn’t as good as the foot spa! Maybe because our hands’ skin’s softer compared to our feet’s skin! After the hand and foot spa, manicure and pedicure began! I love the glittery blue color. It made my skin whiter! And the polish wasn’t like other polish that’s easy to break and chip off!

After the manicure and pedicure, the hand and foot reflex began. It felt so good! Because not only my hands were massaged, my whole arms were massaged too! I even felt sleepy for a while there! It was the same for the foot reflex! My muscles went a little tingly from the pressure! In a good way!

My experience with ChillSPAce Nails Spa & Coolers was memorable and amazing!

If not for the super LONG waiting time, I would have given it a perfect score! But it still gets 4.5 out of 5 stars!

I will definitely go back! See you then!
