Facial treatment and saying compliments in Cantonese?! [with youtube]

Just come back home after a facial treatment. I don’t know what girls oversea will do for skin care. We will buy skincare products plus a monthly facial treatment package. (maybe the air here is a bit polluted or the weather is too humid, anyway, we need this “just” to feel better with our skin).

Besides using 好 (good), you can precisely use the word 舒服

舒服 (feeling well) syu1 fuk6
唔舒服 (not feeling well) m4 syu1 fuk6

[:D Different level of satisfaction:D].
