Facial Hardsell

Hi all, recently been to a facial and it was my first time going alone.
The experience was traumatizing as the therapist was hardselling and wouldnít take no for an answer.
Iíve told her I donít have money and not going to spend any, she cut down to 3 sessions for $450, allowing me to pay $200 and the rest in my subsequent visit. I didnít sign any contract stating Iím gonna have to pay for the full price.
Iím going back this week, thinking i could just bring cash $100 and no cards. (She mentioned i can do that if iím really out of budget)

Is this a good idea? I wanted to stop going but that would mean iím gonna burn my $200....

That is quite expensive,$150 for a session. I suggest just going for the second session Without bringing any money or you could treat it as a lesson and write it off. You need to be firm on your decision and if they threaten you, you can simply call the police to scare them back.

Hi thanks for your suggestion. Mine is $150 for facial + pore tightening. I did ask around and everyone suggested the price is reasonable and i should utilize the 3 sessions.
But itís really a headache to even go back there......

I decided to utilize all 3 sessions then find a reason to escape.
Skin Labo Novena - Be prepared for all kind of hardsell though

Let me share some stuff with you, facial is a form of maintenance. You have to go for sessions regularly to see better results. If you just use the 3 basic stuff Everyday, cleanse toner moisturiser, you will clearly see some difference when you grow older. Diet also plays a key role as well so you might want to research into that, hope this helps.
