Before, I never really needed a dermatologist and only heard of one in my freshman year in UP Diliman. I was then that clueless about beauty regimens and rituals.
Since I turned 30 that's when I started to 'man up' about the whole beautification process. I was a late bloomer. I am one of those na nakapag-asawa bago nakaranas magdalaga. I got married before I relish growing up to womanhood LOL! I was tomboy turned beauty queen while growing up.
As I was saying, the reason why I took my good skin for granted is that I 've always gotten it that way. When I was younger, even in adolescent stage, I had one of the, if not the clearest complexion among my classmates.
I did not need a lot of "maintenance" so to speak, thanks to my parent's genes, why going to the salons or facial centres did not become a habit.
But with age, weight gain and working until the wee hours in the morning, skin stress is finally catching up on me! Like it or not, I started to go to facial centres to get my face cleaned up with sugar build up...errr I mean, acne build up. (I'm really blaming my "sweet tooth" for my acne breakout)

I already experienced going for facials in different places from time to time, thanks to my sister when I was a lot younger, who likes these treatments.
But when I had to go nowadays, I'd go alone scouting the best deal for my pesos. So it is safe to say I've already had my fair share of spas and facials shopping. I'm a woman...what to do?!
I had the worst acne break out in my entire life! I am not blaming anyone...it's just that I gained a lot of weight due to work and stress.
I have already experience different kinds of facials, massages and spas already; Bioessence, Flawless, Let's Face It, which was my favorite before we moved houses, Ysa etc.
But unfortunately, for the loud colors of their décors that could be seen outside as our car pass by on our way home, I refused to try out their services.
That was the simple reason why I did not want to step in DERMCARE center before. But back in December, I was desperate to get my skin fixed. I was in a dilemma because I already know about the lacklustre service of their competition in that mall. So I just crossed my fingers and desperately set foot in their green and pink surroundings.
Everything else was soothing, gentle, and relaxing. You'll surely get your money's worth and more. I think I did.
The facilities were clean, but then someone forgot to refill the toilet paper...*wink
After getting myself a Diamond Peel, Facial and Gold Mask, I found out about their promos and this time, receptive enough to check them out too.
They have a promo now about face and body contouring, facials etc.
So as for me, being a FRUGALICIOU PINAY and all, I got me a year's supply of underarm waxing vouchers for 100 pesos each session!
Underarm waxing ranges from Php 150- 450 pesos. I used to pay Php 400- for mine, everytime I go. But now, in DERMCARE I am paying for a year's worth of underarm waxing for only Php 1,000 pesos! (Thank God, I am not a hairy girl ^^)
So for Php 100 pesos per session, I can easily get myself smooth and fuss free armpits. I saved myself 300 pesos every time I got rid of me fuzzies all ovah ^^ That's 300 x 10? An easy Php 3,000 pesos savings. Value for value and I'm saving a lot of money. This is what I call style and smarts in the real, true blue FRUGALICIOUS PINAY fashion! Gotta find the good deals sistahs!
And in case y'all got curious because of this post, these are their other running PROMOS besides the one in METRODEAL Philippines.
I think the reason why this the DERMCARE facial brand name keeps expanding around the Philippines is because of their VALUE FOR MONEY attitude in business.
You can't beat that.
Next time I go there, I hope you say hi in case we bump to each other. Although, I hope that does not happen during an actual waxing...coz that can really get awkward....
I am going there to check out a....toilet fixture!
But it is a different kind worth putting my NOSE into...err OR not. LOL!
I must tell you though that I am having second thoughts about going. It's such a fancy place and I've not been in my best form for a year now. My biggest regret is "I am too darn fat for a photo-op!" #beautyqueenrant *ROFL
But what the heck! No one's stopping me to have all the fun in life. How about you?
I hope you can subscribe for more "value for money ideas", without sacrificing the all important fun factor and style essentials in a real FRUGALICIOUS PINAY fashion!
Have frugalicious armpits sistahs!
