When you try as many products, treatments and procedures as we do, you will appreciate her (yes, most facialists are women) as much as we do. Why? No hard sell of products or packages, or more new stuff to try. Just an hour with someone who knows your skin well, treats it well, and gives it the respite it needs. These are the three facialists that two insiders and our senior beauty editor depend on for good skin.
Local makeup artist Clarence Lee’s fave:
Cindy Seah from De Beauty
“I have been going to her for more than 10 years. She’s very gentle with my skin (no redness from extractions after!), doesn’t use machines – just her hands – and she gives the most wonderful face massage using her palms. I’ve recommended even people with the most sensitive skin to Cindy, and they only have positive things to say. ”
Find her at #03-60 Orchard Plaza, tel: 6737-2191.
HW’s senior beauty editor Simone Wu’s fave:
Shirley Mok from Annabelle Skin
“She always adjusts the treatment according to my skin’s needs – she’s not just trying to make a quick buck. I tend to get restless during facials, yet she somehow always makes me feel so relaxed. I always leave glowing with zero redness. Seeing her is like visiting an older sister who wants to help take care of my skin.”
Find her at #02-42 The Adelphi, tel: 6336-8975.
Local makeup artist Venetia Stravens’ fave:
Helen Tee from
Therapeutics Aroma “She’s trained as a nurse, beautician and aromatherapist, and I have been seeing her for more than 10 years. Her facials are exceptionally relaxing; she uses essential oils to help me unwind. She’s also really good with body massages. I always walk out feeling weightless and rejuvenated.” – SW
Find her at #03-01 Forum The Shopping Mall, tel: 6737-7039.
