BEAUTY REVIEW: Lea Salonga’s Favorite Facial Treatment | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

A sign of a good facial treatment could only be one of two extremes: Either you look instantly fresh with reborn skin, or you’re looking a little raw, especially if you’ve opted for a peeling treatment.

Facial Care Centre’s Repêchage 4-Layer Facial falls into the former. It’s a good option a day before a big event.

This treatment is unique to Facial Care Centre, being the only one here in the Philippines to offer it. Lea Salonga calls it “the best thing” ever and swears by the treatment. The facial takes an hour and a half, enough time to feel pampered, and if you need to disconnect for a bit.

Repêchage 4-Layer Facial starts with clearing your pores and cleansing the face thoroughly. If you’ve done a facial treatment before, you will be familiar with the procedure that involves a facial steam and pore extraction, best for blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. A layer of Vitamin C-Serum is used to brighten the skin. 

The second step is a hydrating cream layer. Facial Care Centre always keeps in mind the client’s specific skincare condition and tailor fits the treatment to that. Since I was still healing from a few breakouts, the nurse informed me that she skipped out on the Vitamin C serum and went straight to this layer to moisturize my dry spots. 

The final layer of Repêchage dries down like a hallow cast of your face, given the contrast of its warming effect and the cooling effect of the seaweed mask.

The third step is an organic seaweed mask that further calms and moisturizes the skin. The ingredients in the mask can boast up to 12 vitamins and 18 amino acids, and 42 trace elements and minerals. You will feel like you’re swimming in cooling skincare goodness. This mask tends to dry like a soft rubber sheet over the face, a perfect layer for the last part of the facial. 

The Repêchage 4-Layer Facial’s final step is a warming mineral mask. The contrast between the temperatures between this and the seaweed mask allows the skin to fully absorb all the vitamin-rich layers that have just been applied to it. It can feel a little heavy but nothing uncomfortable you might even find yourself asleep as it dries. 

As the layers were slowly taken off and my skin was cleansed for one last time, I felt like I immediately had a new face. I looked into the mirror and noticed how many signs of irritation from the pore extraction had disappeared. Not only that, the other blemishes appeared smaller. My face was indeed supple and indeed a bit tight. I felt very renewed. 

It advised that one must go for a Repêchage 4-Layer Facial at least once a month, with the advice of your Face Care Centre specialist, of course.
