Spa beauty brands in Singapore worth investing in: Aman Skincare, Omorovicza, Elemis, and more
What makes a good spa treatment? For us at Buro. Singapore, we'd say it boils down to two things: a practised, proficient therapist as well as an impeccable lineup of products. The latter is often dependent on the counsel of skincare specialists, who chooses the best beauty brands that align with the spa programme, though it seems there has been a shift in the tectonic plates of the spa industry. Meet spa beauty brands — establishments that are taking a step further in developing their very own formulations. Think all manners of natural, organic, and clean offerings to rival skincare veterans within the industry: from elixirs brimming with super-charged antioxidants to scientifically-proven solutions. We gather the best of the lot worth your coin, below — because R&R time shouldn’t be restricted to the confines of a spa.
Where: Used in all Aman hotels, resorts, and wellness retreats.
What: The spa arm to the renowned hotel and resort group, Aman Skincare boasts a skincare line made with powerful natural ingredients. These bad boys don't just nourish and rejuvenate skin; they are also designed to enhance overall wellbeing with the inclusion of premium healing essential oils such as rosehip, seabuckthorn and moringa. Suitable for all skin types, users can opt for either the Purifying (skin-detoxifying), Nourishing (skin-repairing) or Grounding (skin-calming) range, depending on their needs.
Where: Used in Aramsa The Garden Spa, St. Gregory Spa, and more.
What: Nabbing the title of Britain's number one luxury skincare brand is no easy feat. Launched in 1989, Elemis Spa didn’t take long to develop their own range of scientifically-proven skincare, specialising in anti-ageing products. According to the founders, the potent combination of biological actives sources from both above and below the earth's surface paired with intricately-blended aromatics is what sets its products apart from the crowd. Now this explains how their newly released Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm and Marine Cream SPF30 has attained already cult-like status with beauty junkies.
Where: Used in the Four Seasons Spa in London, Park Hyatt in Tokyo, and more.
What: Mila Kunis, Uma Thurman and Gwyneth Paltrow consider themselves fans of this brand, famous for their Hungarian Spring Water-infused products. The star ingredient is said to restore, rejuvenate, and repair skin like no other, thanks to a mighty blend of minerals found only in this specific geographical region. Its recent entry into beauty empires such as Sephora marks a turning point for the brand, so we say snap 'em up before they sell out.
Where: Used in the Heavenly Spa at The Westin.
What: Priding themselves on tea-infused, natural cosmeuticals for both the face and body, Thémaé Paris formulations are known for limiting oxidative stress, combating ageing, and bringing a sense of 'calm awakening' to the mind with its ultra-sensory textures and fragrances. Too good to drink? No doubt about it.
Where: Used in Espa at Resorts World Sentosa.
What: Traditional holistic therapies come together with pure, natural ingredients in Espa Skincare’s products, chockfull of skin-loving plant actives, marine actives and essential oils. Customer favourites include the 24-hour Replenishing Moisturiser (an intensively, richly hydrating cream), and the Optimal Skin ProSerum (a smoothing, firming, and free-radical fighting oil).
