My initial perception of Bliss Spa was not a good one.
I decided to indulge in a facial while waiting for my shopping buddies in Singapore to get off work and join me in pounding the shopping beat. Bliss Spa at Sephora ION came recommended and after browsing around online, I found out that their Triple Oxygen Treatment Facial comes highly rated – mostly by beauty editors of mags who likely got it gratis 😛 Still… worth a shot I figured.
My sister helped me make a booking but when she called back to confirm my appointment the next day, they told her that no one had taken the reservation down! The result was that I lost my preferred time and had to settle for a later time slot. I was about to give it up but since I’d already hyped myself up for it, I went with the later time slot. It would also give me more time to get into the city from the airport.
They did offer a 20% discount for the inconvenience which helped placate me a little. After all, the Triple Oxygen Treatment Facial is S$185 and 20% off saves me good money anyway.
I got there way before my allotted time which gave me time to relax and fill up some registration forms which I’m told is de rigeur. They greeted me by name which was a nice touch and while waiting, you can snack on chocolate brownies and have tea or water or lemonade and magazines at your disposal. Lovely! After quite a while, it was finally into the facial cabin and away with the facial! Am I going to rave about it as the other beauty editors have? You’ll have to read on to find out.
