Facial skin care

I’m a low maintenance person when it comes to skin care. I rarely use cosmetics and skin care products so when I received this gift certificates from hubby I got so excited and immediately book an appointment. Each GC is worth more than ₱3,000 so I guess I would be getting more or extensive facial skin care than the services offered by the less expensive clinics. By the way, the GCs are not actually free but will be deducted from hubby’s retirement pay. Pending on the availability of a weekend slot, N, K, and I hope to visit the clinic before the end of the month or early next month just before N’s graduation day.
