Day spa Body Contours in Singapore has recently introduced their new Oriential Pearl Face Spa facial. I decided to give it a try.
About Body Contours
Body Contours is a day spa with several outlets in Singapore. I went to their Hill Street Location, where a special promotion was held for their new Oriental Pearl facial. It was busy on this day (due to the special promotion) and I can imagine that the atmosphere would normally be more peaceful and subdued. The reception is luxurious, but the treatment rooms were small but practical.
What is this facial all about?
The facial derives its name from the pearl powder used during the treatment. It’s a white powder-like substance that is full of vitamin C and is quickly absorbed by the skin. It is applied twice during the facial.
After cleansing and exfoliation (no steaming or extraction), the pearl powder is applied to the face. After that a mask is applied that is left on for about 20 minutes. There is a little bit of face and neck massage in between. After the mask the Pearl powder is applied again, followed by toner and sunblock.
What was the facial like?
I liked the general feel and smell of the products used and the Pearl Powder is an interesting product. I’m not a great fan of masks and in this facial the mask was left on for what seemed like a long time. For me it’s always best to have something else happening (like a good massage) during the mask to distract me from the usual discomfort I usually feel from the masks. However, the result afterwards was very good. My skin felt soft, well hydrated and with a lovely glow.
Price and Location
The Oriental Pearl Facial costs $280, but becomes a lot cheaper when bought in a package deal. For more information and location details check out the Body Contours website.
