CRES Time Release AquaCell Yoga Visage Facial Treatment (Review)

Cres Wellness is one of the well known beauty centre offering female customized, luxurious solutions for a high level of wellbeing. Confidence, Relaxation, Elegance and Sophistication – words which form the acronym, “C.R.E.S”. Cres offers innovative facial services, administered by beauty therapists, which custom-treat each mind, body and spirit, based on the revolutionary products of Cellnique Paramedical – Asia’s first paramedical skincare brand.

I'm invited to tried out their newly launched Time-Release AquaCell Yoga Visage recently. This 2 hour facial cost RM450 is a high-performance treatment for dry & dehydrated skin which reinforces skin architecture to provide a complete and thorough solution for skin hydration. Definitely what I needed most! Skin will be highly moisturized and last for days. 

The Yoga lymphatic drainage stimulates the effective absorption of the rich moisture infused. The osmotic regulating features and reinforced hydrolipidic layer provide a time-release mechanism for continuous moisturizing that last for days.

Surface dehydration is a crippling enemy  of the skin, associated with problems as diverse as scaly, taut skin, superficial lines and premature aging.



Symptoms for dehydrated skin:

Skin feel tight and feel a burning sensation.

Skin gets flaky and shows dry lines.

Texture of skin will be rough and will not look smooth.

Redness and feel incessant itching.

Osmoprotectant helps regulates osmotic pressure between cells and their environment and encourage hydrous flow balance to help maintain optimum cellular water/cell volume. Ensures aquahomeostasis of the skin cells and progressively rehydrates the different layer of the skin. It restores skin’s youthful plumpness where fullness has been lost. 

3. Retains. 

An advanced lipid filling complex (ceramide complex) fills in the gaps, improving the skin’s hydrolipidic film, which acts as protective barrier to surround the newly added moisture so skin can hold and retain the moisture in the hydrous reservoir for lasting moisturization, while protecting skin from external aggressors.



As usual, facial began with cleanse, exfoliating and extracting of white and blackheads. What I love of CRES, they have this red light that disinfect the bacteria after extraction which reduce redness.

Next, I'm treated to 4 different type of machine from sucking, spraying etc

For video :
2nd machine
3rd machine

Yoga lymphatic drainage.

Last but not least, this really look scary  and more common in hospital rite? LOL
No worries, I can breath like normal without any discomfort.

Before & After - Not very obvious, blame it on the therapist forgotten to set the same lightning.

After - Some redness mark from extraction. But definitely more plump and softer smoother skin texture.

Right after the facial with natural lighting, I love how my skin are brighten up and glows from within. I'm advised to apply mask everyday for the next few days to maintain the moisturized glowing skin.

Once again, thanks CRES Wellness for the opportunity! For more information,



  1. Wow! Cool Facial experience you have here. Love to pamper my skin too.

  2. Gosh the facial mask over the whole face does look quite scary! But anything in the name of beauty, right?

  3. What a stress reliever! Facials not only enhances the skin but it is also a relaxing experience.

  4. Don't you just love being a girl? This has to be the coolest facial I've heard of and I'm sure it's worth trying. I don't think we have it here but if I chance upon it, I'll take your recommendation.

  5. Your skin looks so plump and glowy! I would've never heard about this before without finding your blog first. Thanks for sharing, it was really insightful :)

  6. This is the first time I have heard of the Yoga lymphatic drainage. It sure does look like it has stimulated the absorption of the moisture. I'm curious though, was there any downtime? (e.g. exposure to direct sunlight, etc)

  7. That sucking machine looks interesting. yes, it looks like being in a hospital with oxygen mask~ I wonder if the effects will be more visible if you go a few more times!

  8. Oh how lovely to have a facial - proper pamper time! :) It sounds like something I would want to do a couple of times to give me face a real boost! What a wonderful treat! Sim x

  9. This is really an advanced skin care product. I want to believe it does actually what you have written.

  10. I can really see the difference after your procedure. I have never gotten one done quite like this before but this makes me want to give it a try.

  11. Oooh your face is glowing. Love that hello kitty shirt dear. =)

  12. This is really a great procedure to keep skin, radiant and moisturized. The difference can be clearly seen in your photos.

  13. I don't think there are a lot of places like these in the uk

  14. i used to go in a skin care clinic and do my monthly facials, however instead of losing those stubborn zits ans blackheads it made my face worse than ever. but im glad yours is doing great. thanks for sharing

  15. wow! your face is glowing. Facial masks is one thing ladies should try once in a while. BTW, nice facilities Cres have.

  16. What a great treat in a beautiful setting! I could use a spa visit to help me relax.

  17. Your skin looked good enough in the first photo to make any difference significant. Maybe you do not really need this to improve your skin, but it may make you feel good.

  18. This treatment makes the face look really fresh, soft and rejuvenated! Love the immediate effect of the procedure, you were so lucky to be able to see the results personally!

  19. i always suggest for natural products...this treatment seems fairly good. keep sharing things :)
