I was presented a free voucher to experience a Collagen facial worth RM380 at Bluunis Salon so who’s to pass it up? I go for regular facials and I’ve been to quite a few places but prefer to only stick to one regular one. I’d never seen Bluunis around before but when I found out it was formerly known as Ultimate Expression the jigsaw fell into place – wasn’t that some slimming centre? My spidey sense started tingling…
Anyway, my facial was at Sunway Pyramid because the voucher came from there. I got there right on the dot of my appointment and was quickly ushered into a small room to fill up a form. “Ah this is where the hard-sell starts” I thought.
To my surprise, there was no hard sell. Yet.
No Skin consultation
To my utter surprise there was no skin consultation. No consultation as to whether my skin was dry or oily or what facial might be a better option. I know the voucher was for an Intensive Collagen Facial but it was my first time at the salon and there was no attempt to create a customer profile at all.
Bluunis Salon was very noisy
After being made to change into a pair of slippers, I was led into the inner section. The inner section of the salon is partitioned off into cubicles. Each cubicle fits a narrow bed and a locker for you to keep your bag. The problem was, the rooms are partitioned with plasterboard and the doors are sliding plywood. So you hear EVERYTHING that’s going on outside and next door.
I could hear some ladies talking at the top of their voices and the loud smacking sounds of a massage from next door. It was distracting.
The air conditioning too was not turned down so it was quite warm. To make things worse a thick duvet is placed over you so you slowly roast during the facial.
