Free Bioessence Back Massage - Review

Bioessence gave away whitening soaps and coupons for free back masssage in the Blogapalooza event last October 11. So before my birthday, I went to SM Megamall to try it out. Here's my review.

I went to the Bioessence branch in the 5th floor of Megamall as it's the closest branch to me.

First thing you'll notice upon entering the shop is that it's small. And there's a lady on the counter that's looking at her phone. When I presented the coupon for the free massage and she has no idea what the hell it is. She has to ask someone from the back what it is first. And then she has to ask someone if they can accommodate the free massage. Which kinda sucked. After several minutes of them figuring out what the friggin coupon is, I signed a form and I was told to sit down while waiting for the masseuse. The long bench was made of wood and was really uncomfortable. Im glad I didnt wait too long tho. They told me to go inside and enter a room.

It was a veery small tiny miniscule room, which can make a claustrophobic person go into shock. or something. It had a narrow bed, a mirror and some hooks for you to hang your clothes on. I haven't been inside a motel ever, but I'm guessing this is what it would look like. The fact that it was dark didn't really help much with the ambience.

The whole massage took around an hour and it was mediocre at best. The massage bed was too firm, there was no hole so that you can lay on your front flatly and the massage itself was sort of painful.
Another thing I didn't like was that the masseuse used too much oil. I was ready to be deep fried in oil after the massage!

Overall, I didn't really like the place, the facilities or even the actual massage. And the actual price for the massage is ridiculous! 1000 Php! I'd rather spend that much for a massage at The Spa or Wensha. Definitely not coming back here even when there's a free coupon.
