I have extremely sensitive and problematic skin due to very poor skin maintenance in my younger days. In fact, I did not have a skincare routine until I was almost 30! As a young music student in Vienna and St. Petersburg, I only washed my face with hand soap and did not moisturise. (Imagine how cracked and parched my skin was from all those harsh winters.) Consequently, my dry skin would over-secrete oil leading to frequent breakouts (until now) and persistent redness. Though my skin has improved today, problems still linger — I’ve inherited an oily T-zone and slightly dry skin on the cheeks with blackheads and oversized pores.
To remedy my oily, acne-prone skin, the skilled and professional staff at EPION recommended the Black Diamond Facial, a clarifying medifacial to combat skin roughness and excess sebum.
First, the therapist deeply cleansed my skin with what I can only describe as a veritable, feel-good potion of wondrous aromas — removing all dirt, grime, and bacteria. Next, a wishlist of serums containing glucosamine, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid was used to soothe my skin. She proceeded to exfoliate my skin with a gentle but thoroughly effective Diamond Peel that removed dead skin cells and those nasty black- and whiteheads. This important step probably cleared the way for the serums to be better absorbed. Lastly, a charcoal mask helped to keep skin clear, smooth, and healthy. A final layer of hyaluronic acid serum was applied to further improve skin texture. Hurrah! 90 minutes of pure, refreshing goodness and no pain!
In the past, I have never enjoyed going for facials. But this time, I loved every minute of EPION’s Black Diamond Facial and only wished it would last longer! My skin was miraculously clean, smooth, glowy, and looked as young and radiant as a baby’s bottom. I immediately signed up to return for more and I can’t wait for the next session!

I haven’t been active in the past year. Coupled with poor sleep habits, my skin has become dull, saggy, and less elastic. The Multi-Nutrient Glow really brightened, firmed, and lifted my appearance. It even changed my skin texture. My face is not only smoother, but also glowing. EPION has restored my radiance.

I’ve been noticing age spots (both on my face and arms), patchiness, and facial ageing. I want to look refreshed and I guess that’s why I should pay more attention to myself. The Black Diamond Facial was a great — almost meditatitive — experience. It felt nice to do a facial together with Yah-Leng and take time off to treat ourselves. The results were beyond my expectations. My skin felt cleansed, light, and revitalised.
