Working in Singapore can be tough and we all need a well-deserved break. What can better than a pampering facial spa session! Treating yourself to a facial once every 4 to 6 weeks has been proven to promote relaxation and achieve noticeable improvements to your skin tone, texture and appearance. It is important however to ensure facials are performed by experienced and well-trained professionals. To help you in your search, here are some of the best facial spas in Singapore.
1. My Cozy Room
More than just a facial room, My Cozy Room is a quaint terrace house that is just a skip away from Orchard. This boutique spa is famed for its best extraction facial which promises to get rid of the bacteria trapped within your pores in a relatively painless yet meticulous way. With an in-depth skin analysis, the facial treatments are fully customisable to your needs that are effective in treating acne, clogged pores, sensitive skin and other skin problems. You are in trusted hands as their therapists are skilfully trained with many years of experiences, coupled with the use of premium quality professional skincare brand. Having successfully treated thousands of satisfied customers, many have also commented that their treatments are effective with minimal pain and redness. Expect to step out of the spa feeling refreshed and rejuvenated as you end your treatment with a stress-relieving head and shoulder massage.
2. Elizabeth Arden Red Door Boutique
Located at ION Orchard, this spa offered Singapore’s first Red Door Experience. The experience was first introduced on the iconic Fifth Avenue in New York City in 1910 and has since taken the beauty world by storm. Start by requesting a customised skincare analysis and leave with a face full of makeup. Make sure you try out their Escape Facial which consists of 80 blissful minutes of deep microdermabrasion, enzyme exfoliation and eye collagen treatment.
3. Aesop Facial Appointment
We love the level of customisation provided by the spa. They have a well-thought treatment space and offers six customised Aesop facial treatments designed to stimulate and intensively nourish your skin. Your therapist will tailor a suitable treatment and products after an in-depth consultation. Start your experience with try their Parsley Seed Intensive treatment where your skin gets deep cleansed, gently exfoliated and hydrated. Do book early to avoid disappointment, the spa takes up to four appointments per day as there’s space for only one customer at a time so we suggest booking well in advance.
4. SK-II Boutique Spa by Senze Salus
With ridiculously comfy beds that will knock you out during your treatment, the SK-II Boutique Spa by Senze Salus offers one of the most relaxing facial experiences. Start your experience with the 60-minute SK-II Discovery Facial which utilises a sonic cleansing wand and cold ion machine to exfoliate dull skin, tighten pores, soothes redness and erase your dark circles. You will emerge a brand new person!
5. Spa Esprit
Nestled among the lush greenery of Dempsey Hill, Spa Esprit offers the perfect tranquillity environment to help get you all relaxed before treatment. We recommend their Beam Me Up Infrared Lifting Facial. This rejuvenating treatment helps reduce visible signs of premature ageing by using a high-powered near-infrared lamp to heat tissues deep under the skin’s surface to lift and firm skin. The session ends with a cooling herbal mask as well as a comfortable neck and shoulder massage.
The Korean luxury skincare brand is famed for its traditional beauty regime and the extensive use of Korean ginseng. We recommend their Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Treatment which will help rejuvenate, tighten and brighten your skin while giving collagen renewal a boost. Start with a welcoming footbath and facial massage before applying Sulwhasoo’s signature First Care Activating Serum EX to facilitate absorption. Radiance Energy Mask is first applied, followed by a décolleté and face massage with a pair of jade rings. A remodelling mask follows, and the treatment ends with yet another face massage – this time a special ‘twist and pinch’ technique to boost lymph drainage to promote the skin’s ability to self-rejuvenate.
7. The Ritz-Carlton Spa
Get away from the hectic city to this underwater paradise. If you are new to Singapore’s first La Mer spa, go for its signature La Mer Miracle Broth Facial, a 90-minute treatment that’s perfect for skin regeneration. This “broth” is an elixir that locks in the moisture while soothing and brightening your skin. The treatment is then finished with a special ice sequence that will seal in the essence for that long-term glow.
8. Kew Organics Facial Bar
Kew Organics Facial Bar uses only fresh, vegan, non-GMO, certified organic and natural ingredients to deliver amazing skin for its customers. Newbies can start with Skin Clear Organic Treatment. This bespoke treatment effectively removes acne scars and blemishes to reveal smooth and soft skin.
