SickCryOuch  Never seen anything like it
We've all been warned about "breaking out" post-facial -- skin treatments detoxify skin and pimples may result from the toxin release. But we've never seen or experienced anything like Juli "Bun Bun" of bunbunmakeuptips.com. The beauty blogger's horrific tale of a facial gone wrong went viral after BuzzFeed picked up her story yesterday.
 
The Singaporean beauty blogger went for a facial (something she had had before) and days later, her skin broke out beyond realistic belief. Relegated to wearing a face mask to cover up the scars of several extractions (where whiteheads are removed by an esthetician), she's now in the process of healing her skin. (We tried to reach Juli for comment on the story herself, but are still awaiting a response.)

On her blog she says: "As a beauty blogger, everyone expects you to put your best face forward. This is an undeniable expectation, totally acceptable, despite it being extremely superficial. I don't know how my skin will eventually turn out, I could be scarred for life, I could heal over time (after plenty of cash spent). Nobody knows. If I'm scarred, people will judge me the same way we all judge people with bad skin. I'll just have to live with it."

Caution: This post contains graphic images of a face inflammed with red, angry pimples filled with pus. You might feel itchy and want to vomit after seeing these images. I totally understand if you run away from me if you saw me. Reader discretion advised.

However, I beseech you to carry on reading – for my sake, and yours.

Once upon a time not too long ago, I looked like this.

My-Skin-Ravaged-Allergic-Reaction-After-Facial-Experience_BEFORE-facial

In fact, this was taken on the day of The Singapore Social Concerts, just 3 days before the skin-ravaging facial on Monday, 27 May 2013 .

I’ve never had ‘flawless skin’ – I’ve discussed that in my Garnier skincare post. I’ve been battling acne my whole post-puberty life and scars, freckles, hyperpigmentation, dark spots have constantly made themselves very much at home on my face.

No Photoshopping was done on the previous photo, to show you how my skin looks like with only makeup. Just in case you want to know, I used Lioele Dollish Veil Vita BB as a base, and Lancome Mat Miracle Foundation on my face. They’ve never given me any problems in the past few months of use. This is my best face paint combination in my life, in fact.

In this post, all the photos you see were edited only for size. There was no Photoshopping involved – I have no desire to make the condition seem better or worse than it really is.

I will not reveal the name of the facial salon in this post, NOT in the interest of protecting its reputation, but because I truly believe that no sane organization would intentionally cause harm to its customers. Okie, maybe you’d quote the China fake milk powder stories to show that people would do anything for a quick buck,  but this was a sponsored facial and the salon would obviously not want to incur the wrath of the blogger and its potential clients.

Mr Mode is livid that despite them inflicting so much pain – physically and emotionally – on me, I still choose to keep the identity of the salon a secret.

If you see me on Sunday at the Bloggers Bazaar, I’d most probably be wearing a mask so that I won’t scare people away, and also to minimize further bacterial infection.

She isn't naming the salon because she's getting her legal case together--not because she thinks they weren't out to harm her, LOL

Looks like she had a serious unexpected allergic reaction to the products used.  I had a facial right before my wedding day and had a minor breakout afterwardsAngry

Looks more like an allergic reaction. Since they're white heads I dont think the damage will be that bad. I had an allergic reaction to my first and last facial before and I had clusters of white heads pop up on my forehead, cheeks, chin, etc but not as bad as the girl in the OP. Eventually they will go away and heal though. Definitely sucks, poor thing.

This friend of mine had a reaction to bleaching cream. When i say she broke out with cystic sized acne. Now she looks like someone who had chicken pox on her face. She has dark scars from i guess an old breakout and plus additional current acne. its bad. I say her a year ago at our friends wedding and she looked normal I saw her a few weeks ago and LAWD i was so baffled.
