The last time I had a facial was probably last year, so I decided to give myself a little treat. Situated at the quaint and historical neighbourhood of 2 Everton Park, is a specialty boutique beauty salon called Beaute by Kew. Newly opened by Lily Kew, an expert in holistic living, beauty, skincare, health, diet and nutrition. Beaute Kew offers customized solutions to suit the individual skin type.
I was invited to have some tea first before filling up my particulars in their system. Next, I was ushered into the treatment room where May, my therapist, assessed my skin condition before recommending a suitable treatment.
May mentioned that my complexion was dull and dry due to a lack of exfoliation. So to remove all the dead skin, I had a diamond peel treatment done. The diamond peel is also known as a microdermabrasion treatment, however, the one I got to try was the latest version, which is the hydradermabrasion. Unlike the traditional microdermabrasion, the hydradermabrasion utilizes both water and oxygen to exfoliate the skin without the use of hard crystals or abrasive textured wands. This helps in generating deeply hydrated and healthier looking skin.
After my eyebrow grooming and some extraction. I got to try the Power DPL hair removal for upper and lower lips. There’s an on-going promotion now, just S$98 for a lifetime power DPL hair removal for underarms, upper lips or bikini line. So what is DPL? I’m sure most of you are familiar with IPL, well, DPL is an enhanced hair removal treatment that combines both traditional IPL and laser. Gentle pulses are released and vaporizes most of the hair shaft and bulb without affecting the skin. This treatment is safe and non-invasive. I was anxious because it was my first time trying this out but surprisingly, the pain turned out to be tolerable and it feels like tiny ant bites.
Next, a hydrating Xingu and Aloe Vera mask was applied onto my face. I was then treated to a relaxing facial, shoulder and head massage. May’s experienced hands were firm but not too forceful and I thoroughly enjoyed the massage.
May also noticed that I had tiny skin-coloured bumps around my eye and cheek area which she classified as warts. As a trial, she used a laser to burn some away for me. I was told to apply Aloe Vera gel on the area for at least a week and let the scab drop off by itself to prevent scarring. They do removal for the whole face at S$688 (there’s a 3 months limit period) or charge S$10 per bump.
This is my face after the facial, bare without any makeup. As you can see, there’s still some redness due to the extraction. However, my skin is looking brighter now after the hydradermasion. I can’t wait for my second visit!
