Many readers come across my blog because they googled “New York Skin Solutions (NYSS) Review” and read my blog post about it.
However, after completing 20 facial sessions at a hefty price of averaging $110/facial, I decided that NYSS facials are too costly,
hard to book (they advertise a lot and get a lot of clients and hence busy schedule), and that my skin condition has improved markedly and thus I don’t need to continue such an expensive package with them.
I had the chance to enjoy a complimentary Jean Yip R6 facial, which is customized and originally priced at $488, thanks to Clozette.com
and Jean Yip for running a Clozette members’ privilege (Now closed).
My review of Jean Yip R6 Facial is that it is very good. I tried it a few months back at the Plaza Sing branch and it was a really in depth cleansing treatment. My beautician is Mandy and she’s got good skills. That’s the main reason why I decided to sign up for a facial package with them, not the R6 package ($488/facial) as it is too costly for me at the moment. To me, the most important thing for a facial package is – affordability/price followed by the skills of the beautician. A basic one would suffice for me, as I am still young and my skin just needs basic cleansing and maintanance at the moment, now that most of my acne issues have cleared.
As a big fan of facials, I believe in facials because they have indeed helped me to improve my then acne prone skin condition and now, help me to maintain a relatively acne clear skin condition and given me so much more confidence in life. But, I am a young adult, with bills and study loans to pay, so I feel the pinch and I do not enjoy paying the hefty price to each facial even though I know it helps my skin condition.
Therefore I signed up for the Clarity facial at $90/facial for 10 sessions and that is a discounted rate because I told them I wanted the cheaper package, one that would meet my budget and needs. I have completed two sessions of the Clarify facials, I am satisfied with the services of Jean Yip (Plaza Sing branch) in terms of the scheduling, follow up and beautician’s service rendered. I don’t think there is any major difference treatment result on my skin compared to the basic facial package by NYSS thus Jean Yip would be more value for money in terms of a more basic facial treatment, and have better scheduling experience.
I still feel that $90/facial is expensive because with $90, there’s so many other things I can spend it on; have several good meals or 1-2 pieces of clothings/shoes. But that said, like many girls, beauty comes at a price, and for the treatment and service provided by Jean Yip, I would still say that it is an investment. Expensive, but necessary to me. I will still continue to be on a lookout for alternative facial providers of the same effectiveness/service standard but at a lower price. Consumers these days are hard to please indeed. 🙂
