Butterfly Soirée @ Posh Nail Spa TTDI

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

I was one of the privileged Butterflies to have been invited to the prestigious, annual Butterfly Project Soirée (spa party) back in May. Seeing that I was one of the community's "warga emas" (or you can say, longest serving batch of bloggers), I was fortunate to be included in this campaign as they were treating us ladies to a day of nail spa pampering and delicious wine with accompanying desserts!


The venue was hosted at Posh! Nail Spa, one of the most successful nail parlors in KL/PJ area. If I'm not mistaken, Posh turns 5 this year and it's hard to believe that they've been only been around this long! The name may sound familiar because Posh have sponsored various print magazines and local events through the years (they recently groomed the nails of Miss Astro Chinese International Pageant aka MACIP 2017 ladies too!).

It is luxe, plush and spells everything

Why?

Upon entering the door, you'll be greeted with this scenery --




The interior of the nail parlor is decorated in white and gold, to reflect its luxurious, POSH theme.
The first thing that caught my attention was the BIG PLUSH CHAIRS.
Did you noticed that there were placed far apart from each other?
I find it very special because most nail parlors would cramp chairs nearby to maximise on its real estate.
Not here.
Here at Posh, you get lots of space.
And more space means privacy.
Privacy is expensive.
Indirectly.

Can you imagine being placed next to a stranger really close for few hours straight?
It definitely would be very UNCOMFORTABLE because you can hear their every little conversation with the nail artist.
(A lot of ladies love gossiping with their favourite nail artist / hair stylist / salon lady. No?)

Plus, what better way to increase your privacy other than THICK POSH CURTAINS?
Bet most of you haven't seen a nail salon in Malaysia adorned with individual curtains to separate each customer! We usually only get this at facial centres where we need to lie down but now we could also have it when doing our nails (even when lying down isn't necessary).
I'm definitely impressed!

Also, Posh takes accompanying friends, boyfriends, husbands and children into consideration by placing a ultra plush sofa in middle of the salon for those long waiting hours!

The attendees came dressed accordingly to the party's theme! So pretty (●♡∀♡●)


Of course, the perfect pampering session couldn't be complete with some French Patisserie and fine wine! We had the good people of La Rose Noire Malaysia to indulge us with their sweet pastries in creatively decorated food tray presentation! We had a few choices of Chous Chous, Petit Fours Tartlets, Moscato and of course, Macarons! Our wine was a bottle of Ca Bianca Moscato d’Asti from Wine Talk Malaysia. How generous!










After having the perfect set of manicured nails, Posh understands the demands of today's busy women by adding a makeup space for that perfect all-in-one-stop package. The beauty of this makeup space is you could actually get your nails, makeup and hair, waxing, eyelash extensions done all in ONE PLACE before heading to your event! You can actually utilize the space and services offered to get ready right before heading to your event!


Also, the space is also part of another offering of Posh - you could host private parties (like this Butterfly Soirée!) or workshops, inline with your theme! Everything can be arranged and discussed beforehand and Posh is really flexible like that.




There are some corners of the salon where nail art compilation are displayed to showcase Posh artists' talents. Some of these nails have been featured in print magazines and even on the runway during the first ever nail fashion show organized by Posh!




I find this wall quite interesting as it has actual nail polish bottles and makeup tools attached as part of the display.




The Wall of Fame.
I saw online that Posh! Nail Spa has been the choice of MACIP girls for 4 years in a row now (they have been sponsoring the girls since 2013!). That's something to be real proud of as MACIP is a very prestigious chinese pageant in Malaysia.



These Soi candles were there to set the mood and were given as part of a thank you gift for the soirée.


💅🏻
I did not have the chance to have my nails donned by Posh during the event as my nails were fully manicured during that time but I heard from the other attendees that they loved their express manicures done there. I have some vouchers (yet to be utilized) and I plan to go there very soon as my nails are in need of some TLC right now.

Before I end this blogpost, I would like to thank The Butterfly Project again for being my Fairy-Godmother and sending me to such a beautiful soirée.
This is definitely one of the best pampering sessions I've had in awhile!
It really can transform you into the queen that you are meant to be.

Laser Genesis Face Aesthetic Treatment @ Peter Ch'ng Skin Specialist

Monday, 3 July 2017
It's been awhile since I've written about facial treatments at aesthetic clinics, so I thought I'd share about a newly opened clinic I recently visited at Desa Parkcity!


Me at the Front Desk


Located at Plaza Arkadia, Peter Ch'ng Skin Specialist clinic opened it's doors to the neighbourhood here in Desa Parkcity. It's a bit quiet at Plaza Arkadia at the moment as they have yet to fully launch the place. For now, there are a couple of cafes, boutique and beauty salons that have occupied the space there. It is not difficult to locate the clinic as it's facing the main road.



Here's a little background - Dr Peter Ch'ng is a renowned dermatologist with a practising clinic in Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur. The clinic at Desa Parkcity is their second branch and Dr Loo is the doctor-in-charge there at the moment.


The Interior



The interior is built is such a lovely all-white-minimalistic fashion, so soothing to the eyes. It gives me a certain calmness when entering the clinic and waiting for my doctor's appointment.

Treatments

Upon doctor's consultation, it is recommended that I do Microdermabrasion (3 steps), Laser Genesis & Chemical Peel (for acne spot on my chin).



Step 1: Microdermabrasion


Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks.


Step 2: Laser Genesis


Laser Genesis is an effective treatment that eliminates fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin tone and texture, diffuse redness and scars. These results are achieved by gently heating the dermis below the skin's surface and stimulating collagen production.

I asked Dr Loo the difference between Laser Genesis versus Q-switch Nd:YAG laser. She mentioned that Q-switch laser is short pulses of waves while Laser Genesis uses long wave pulses. Comparatively, I feel that Laser Genesis is less painful and produces the same "burnt skin scent" aftermath. 

This is great for busy people on-the-go who needs a quick skin fix because it does not have any down time right after 😀


Step 3: Chemical Peel on Acne Spot

A chemical peel is a treatment in which an acid solution is used to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. In performing chemical peels, physicians apply alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol to the skin

Results 


From the pics above, you could notice that my skin is visually clearer. However since the treatment includes my cells being more hydrated, thus my face shape looks rounded and plumper post-treatment.

As promised, there isn't any downtime and I do not feel any painful sensations at all. The treatment was really soothing, even putting me into a light sleep spell!
