Feeling cheated

i think most beauty parlours are a real scam! just the other day, after hearing comments about how my skin was looking tanned and dull, i decided to go for a facial at a reputed beauty parlour. the beautician advised me to go in for a skin lightening facial that would remove suntan too. i took her advice and looked forward to a relaxing time ahead. for those of you familiar with facials, you would know that it is supposed to be very relaxing. but unfortunately, it was not to be. the girl doing my facial did a very hurried and sub standard job that i was left feeling very irritated and unhappy. seriously, i expected more than this for the Rs.800 that i had to shell out. and the worst part was that she forgot about me after applying the face pack. after about 25 minutes after applying the pack, i got up and had to wash my face on my own. i am so put off by such attitude that i think from here onwards, i will do my facial at home itself. have any of you had similar experiences??

So far I have not had any similar experiences because I am very skeptical about beauty parlors, especially consultants who are very pushy. The more pushy they are, the more they push me away. If you are able to do facials at home, it is always more economical to DIY. At least you can be confident of your own skills :P

all i can say is that i learnt it the hard way... i agree with you. these places usually are adept at making you feel so very inadequate about yourselves. somehow, they always tend to identify non-existent problems with our skin or hair and usually they claim to have treatments that are very 'effective' too.

true. the treatments are always effective on others but not you. how apt!

I usually do all that stuff myself. I can't see spending all that money when most of those products you can buy yourself. Years ago I went to a local beauty school and did the micro-dermabrasion a few times. It was very relaxing-soothing music, massage, etc. And it was cheap too since it was a school. Did you at least complain about the way you were treated?
