Best beauty counters and boutiques in Singapore that give facials: La Prairie, Clé de Peau Beauté, and more
All glowed up
It'd be naïve to deem skincare merely a grooming ritual in 2020. For many of us, it has grown to become so much more, serving as an anxiety-alleviating mechanism and even a form of self-care. This renewed focus on what we put upon our miens has, thus, caused many a label to step up their game, launching bigger and better innovations alongside specialised services. Think amenities with skin analysis capabilities; engraving and customisation options; as well as one-of-a-kind facials. Yes, that's treatments unique to each brand, most often conducted using their star products and within cabins located a stone's throw away their counters. How convenient — for 'em and us both. We've gathered the ones we've been frequenting for products and pampering, below.
Space is clearly no constraint to the Swiss skincare label. Their newly opened beauty lounge comprises just two facial cabins, but don't mistake 'em to be lacking in luxury. Another plus point: its tucked-away location within Tangs Orchard, which means you're spared the hustle and bustle of the shop floor without having to travel beyond town borders. Their extensive list of services certainly is the cherry on top —choose between the Skin Caviar Lifting & Firming Facial (hydration); the Platinum Rare Haute Rejuvenation Facial (brightening); and the Pure Gold Radiance Facial (anti-ageing). We particularly enjoyed the array of makeup and hair styling tools available after your facial, should you require to get your moneymaker back in shape before departing. Extremely thoughtful, indeed.
La Prairie's Art of Beauty Lounge is located within Tangs Orchard.
Clé de Peau Beauté
Get the best of Japanese tech and modern French sensibilities at CDP Beauté's counters. Their range of tailored facial treatments kicks off with a personalised skin consultation with a professional therapist, where they'd recommend something off their menu based on your complexion needs. The goods are then applied on with their patented massage techniques, further elevating the experience. The Brightening Facial Treatment proves to be a favourite amongst the Buro. Singapore team, where it instantly granted illumination to drawn, tired visages.
Clé de Peau Beauté facial services are available at BHG Bugis and Mandarin Gallery.
Dubbed the Dior Institut, guests are treated to a sensorial journey upon entering thanks to its minimalist yet striking interior perfumed with the best of Dior fragrances. A wide suite of services aside, Dior Skin Experts will also be on hand to recommend products and application tips to help up your current skincare regime. Boys, there's even a dedicated Homme treatment should you be seeking some R&R time.
Dior's facial services are available at Dior Beauty's The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands flagship and Tangs Orchard.
Seoul might see a full-fledged Sulwhasoo flagship with massages and facials alike, but Singapore's rendition is no slouch either. Each facial begins with a meridian point massage featuring a fragrance of your choice, followed by a fancy foot bath comprising the K-Beauty brand's signature ingredient: ginseng. Be sure to scour their site thoroughly to get a full idea of which treatment to sign up for — there is plenty to choose from.
Sulwhasoo's facial services are available at Capitol Building, ION Orchard, Tangs Orchard, and Westgate.
Slathering on layers of La Mer's Miracle Broth is a delectable experience in itself, made even more so when it's being applied on by the skilled, deft hands of a La Mer technician. Expect hand-chosen treatment sequences focused on revitalizing and rejuvenation paired with custom massage techniques based on individual needs. Sounds like bliss, already.
La Mer's facial services are available at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands flagship as well as Tangs Orchard.
