My Experience with Modern Beauty Salon

I received a gift voucher to Modern Beauty Salon for a facial & full body massage. I was immediately attracted to the promotion package offered to me with 20 times facial / body massage for the price of RM1200. Sounds cheap with only RM60 per facial bear in mind only a simple facial with extraction. I also did top up another RM700 for LED lightings. A beauty technology I came across the first time in my life.

To be honest, I have to admit all the beauticians at Modern Beauty Salon are very young and their extraction skill ain't so good. I have went there for 5 times now and I have to specifically request a beautician that can extract my full blackheads nose with skill. I did see some improvement on my full blackhead nose now.. And I have been to both Modern Beauty Salon located at Midvalley & Damansara Utama. I find the Midvalley branch a little too pushy & hardsale compared to Damansara Utama. And also Mid valley branch the lighting is so dim. I personally prefer going to Damansara Utama branch for reasons stated above.

For first timer, there is a promotion price of RM38 for facial & RM60 for full body massage for 45mins only.
I love their body massage there. I would say its quite a quality massage since the masseur will make sure you are comfortable with the pressure applied on you & consistently throughout the 45 minutes.
