We’ve got the scoop on the latest skin, hair and makeup launches in Singapore this month, so you won’t be left behind. From a teeth whitening treatment (with a special discount!) to personalised facials , here are our top beauty treatments and new skincare and make-up products to try out!
Tighten and tone
Lift and tone loose and sagging skin around the face and neck without downtime with ultherapy, a non-invasive anti-ageing treatment available at W Skin & Laser. FDA-approved ultrasound energy is used to precisely target the foundational layer of facial tissue that doctors typically address in surgery. Ideal for those in their thirties to fifties who are noticing early signs of sagging, ultherapy jump-starts the skin repair process, strengthening existing collagen while boosting new collagen production.
On top of our lust list is Sunday Riley’s newest innovation: A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum ($128). Powered by a 6.5 percent blend of retinoid and botanical extracts like Hawaiian white honey and ginger, this potent treatment fights signs of ageing and improves skin clarity – without the side effects typically associated with other high-strength retinol products, such as flaking or skin sensitivity. sephora.sg
We’ve got our eye on natural skincare brand Antipodes’ latest launch, the Blessing Anti-Pollution Light Face Serum ($59.45). This lightweight, oil-based product provides a protective barrier against pollution particles. Formulated with nutrient-rich avocado oil and jojoba oil to strengthen the skin and liquorice root to brighten it, the certified-vegan serum is developed and produced in New Zealand. Available at selected Guardian stores.
Looking to fix your frizzy locks? Try Hera Hair Salon’s keratin treatment, a customisable hair smoothing service that uses Goldwell Kerasilk products. Suitable even for sensitive scalps, this hair treatment features Goldwell’s exclusive KeraShape technology, which allows the formaldehyde-free formula of keratin, silk proteins and glyoxylic acid to penetrate deep into the hair shaft. Keratin bonds are created to seal the cuticle and keep the hair smooth and soft for up to five months. Your tresses will keep their natural volume while staying frizz-free. Priced from $315. Make an appointment online at herabeauty.sg.
Try the Stop & Grow treatment at Hairdreams, a specialist in hair thickening and lengthening services. Developed with scientists, cosmetics experts and dermatologists, the two-phase system contains phytohormones and collagen fibres to activate cell functions, stimulate hair growth, anchor hair roots and prevent hair loss. The appointment starts with an in-depth consultation and scalp analysis to determine the current scalp condition. The programme includes both regular insalon services and daily home treatments.

Hydrate your skin while protecting it from environmental pollution and harmful UVA and UVB rays with this physical sunscreen ($58) from local skincare brand Sigi Skin. Formulated with a superfood blend of avocado and acai extracts for their nourishing properties, as well as niacinamide for a brightening effect, this lightweight, non-greasy sunscreen doubles as a daytime moisturiser for normal-to-oily skin types. It’s also gentle enough for kids and doesn’t leave behind a white cast, either. Shop the full range of skincare at sigiskin.com.
If you want to reduce stubborn fat without going under the knife, try Z Lipo Mini at Cutis Medical Laser Clinics. This non-invasive treatment uses safe cryolipolysis (fat-freezing) technology to treat fat pockets in smaller areas that are often resistant to rigorous diet and exercise, including double chins and bra fat. The handpiece uses a pulsed vacuum suctioning action to break down the fat cells. Then, the cooling panels emit the optimal coolness to freeze the fat cells to the point of elimination. The dead cells are then naturally eliminated out of the body through the lymphatic system over a period of 10 to 12 weeks, after which you’ll notice visible slimming.
New spa alert!
SK-II Boutique Spa by Senze Salus has opened at Raffles City Shopping Centre (252 North Bridge Road, #02-26B). The flagship spa boasts over 20 plush treatment suites, a dedicated beauty bar, a spacious lounge area and private consultation rooms. Look forward to stellar beauty treatments by experienced professionals, and a selection of organic green teas curated by a tea sommelier in Japan.
We’re dying to try Kew Organics’ Skin Gym Facial ($98), an age-reversing treatment combining organic botanicals and nutrient-rich serums to reveal younger looking skin in just 30 minutes. A multi-polarity electroporation device micro-massages the face, stimulating blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and toxin removal. It also delivers more oxygen to the skin cells for an immediately clearer, healthier and more glowing complexion.
