Eyes are the gateway to your soul, so let’s get those peepers looking good! If you’re wanting to look at getting eye bag removal, smooth crows feet or lift droopy eyelids, there are some great eye treatments, from gentle lasers to fillers and eyelid surgery! If you want your eyes to be the focus or you just want to wear less makeup, eyebrow embroidery is a key step. Who knew having eyebrows could make such a difference!? Lash extensions are a modern marvel too. Or, if you don’t want to go that far, a lash lift or lash Botox and tint can do wonders to natural lashes. We’ve also tested eye creams and serums, boosters, contour sets and eyelash serum to help you on your path to beautiful eyes. Here are some reviews plus highlights of aesthetic procedures.
Eyebrow Embroidery Review
The older I get, the more I come to realise that when you have well-defined eyebrows, you feel a lot more attractive. Jo Artysan came highly recommended, their studio is luxurious and inviting and the staff go above and beyond to make sure you have a good experience. Before you meet the artist, they’ll show you the various eyebrow embroidery options and explain every step to make sure you know what to expect.
Founder-director Jo drew marks to indicate where my arch would go, how long my eyebrows would be and their thickness. We agreed on the shape and then they whisked me away to a comfortable spa bed with a lush weighted blanket. Numbing cream was applied so the procedure was painless. It just felt like someone was scratching my eyebrows with something blunt. Jo is delightful to chat to and she has a passion and pure artistry for her craft.
I received detailed after-care and the eyebrow embroidery turned out to be hyper-realistic and revitalised. The experience exceeded my expectations and the results are deeply satisfying.

Aesthetic Eye Treatments in Singapore
The skin on our eyelids is the thinnest on our body so it’s susceptible to a whole host of problems, from wrinkles, eye bags and dark circles to crow’s feet. These aesthetic doctors in Singapore recommend their most popular anti-ageing eye treatments. Whether it’s spending an hour on an eye treatment or something a little longer-lasting – like a minor nip-and-tuck to permanently remove that extra baggage or eyelid surgery.
What: Tear Trough Fillers
Where: The Chelsea Clinic
Have you woken up with shock at your “panda eyes”? Dark circles can emerge as a result of lack of sleep, ageing and genetics. To achieve a long-term improvement in the under-eye area, The Chelsea Clinic recommends treatment by what are known as tear trough fillers.
The tear trough area is considered one of the more challenging areas to treat. Specifically designed to target this delicate area, the tear trough filler procedure follows an adapted protocol to inject hyaluronic acid safely into the affected area. Perks of the treatment include the ease of injection, the natural under-eye correction and delayed ageing of the skin. Additionally, tear trough fillers are good for smoothing out wrinkles, lines and cracks, so you can win the fight against panda eyes once and for all!
Finally, there are the tear trough fillers to inject hyaluronic ingredients under your eyes that will moisturise the skin, provide volume and stimulate collagen from within! Take your pick and say hello to fresh and rejuvenated eyes.
What: Eyebag Removal
Where: W Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
Eye bags become more prominent with ageing. Frustrated with looking tired and listless all the time as a result? Eye bag removal can give the aesthetic effect of fresher, more energetic eyes.
While the traditional removal procedure involves the placement of incisions under the eyelashes, advances in surgical technique have simplified the procedure, making it safer and more effective. The “transconjunctival” approach involves just a small 10mm incision behind the lower eyelid, allowing for eyebags to be removed with no incisions on the skin. (It’s also referred to as scarless eyebag removal surgery.) The benefits of not placing skin incisions include a quicker recovery process and zero tell-tale signs of surgery. The treatment can also be supplemented with ancillary procedures, such as fat grafting, to further enhance the rejuvenating effect.
What: Eye Rejuvenation & More
Where: The Aesthetic Studio Clinic & Surgery
If you have eyebags, fine lines, pigmentation or hollowing or droopy eyelids, Dr Jonathan Lee’s Eye Rejuvenation treatment at The Aesthetic Studio is a holistic technique consisting of several stages customised to individual concerns. For eyebags, Dr Lee has both surgical and non-surgical tools in his arsenal – so, a radiofrequency needle can shrink the fat bag, and Botox can smooth wrinkles around the eyes or pull up the brow for a more energised look.
Options include the Fotona Laser – a twin-light laser that can reduce eye bags and improve skin elasticity and tone – and tear trough fillers, where hyaluronic ingredients are injected under your eyes to moisturise the skin, provide volume and stimulate collagen from within.
Quote “EXPAT LIVING” and pay just $88 for Eye Rejuvenation, $388 for Fotona Smooth Eye and $1,388 for Upper Face Botox and Filler.
What: Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Where: Dr Marco Faria Correa Plastic Surgery
One of the earliest signs of ageing on the face is the appearance of droopy upper eyelids. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, which involves the removal of upper eyelid skin, can help to dramatically improve the appearance of tired and droopy eyes.
Generally, only the excess eyelid skin is removed, though in some cases where there are pockets of fat that make the eye area look puffy, these can be removed at the same time. This procedure can also be combined with an Endoscopic Browlift or a Browlift Procedure to give a fresher rejuvenation around the eye socket and orbital area. If you have low pain tolerance, there’s no reason to worry! This eyelid surgery is performed as day surgery under local anaesthesia with light sedation.
Is it time to look for a new hair salon in Singapore?
Lash Extensions Review
It’s been months since I got lash extensions, so I was looking forward to a visit to the Holland Village branch of The Lash Company. When I arrived at the bright, modern space on the second floor of a shophouse, my stylist, the very approachable Pei Fen, asked about my personal preferences. After telling her I preferred the classic set, she took a look at my eyelashes and very observantly informed me that the lashes on my left eye tended to be shorter. She suggested not sleeping too much on one side as it can hinder lash development! She also decided to personalise the treatment by adding a few 2D lashes to the areas of my eyes where they were more sparse.
Before they began the lash extensions, I felt something very cooling on my eyes – I later discovered that this was a deep-cleansing lash spa that comes with every set. It made the beginning of the process very relaxing. Next, I was given a moisturising collagen eye mask that only added to the calming effect. Thanks to these additions, I didn’t feel the usual itch or pain you can feel when adhesive is applied. In fact, I took a nap during the process!
I woke up to an enhanced, natural-looking set of eyelashes, exactly the kind I wanted. The lash extensions were soft and didn’t really feel like they were there at all. I was given an after-care kit to brush them and keep them in clean, tip-top condition; Pei Fen suggested I get refills done within three weeks to keep my eyelashes full. I think I’ll try to keep this look for a long time to come!

Lash Lift and Tint Review
I approached this salon as I needed a solution to save my droopy straight lashes and didn’t want to do lash extensions. I was tired of the time-consuming hassle of curling and applying mascara onto my lashes every morning! Not to mention the dreaded process of thoroughly removing the mascara at the end of every day. The over-the-phone consultation with the team was informative and the appointment booking process was seamless.
My Lash Botox treatment included a lash lift and tint (a semi-permanent mascara coating). The staff also took into careful consideration what I wanted to achieve, and offered good advice. That really put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. My artist was knowledgeable and knew what curl would work on my lashes. Her attention to detail was simply excellent. There was zero discomfort on my eyes throughout the treatment, and my lashes looked immaculate after just one hour.
I’m so pleased with the results of the lash lift and tint. I would definitely recommend Jo Artysan’s Lash Botox treatment as the results are natural and subtle, yet enough to see a difference! In all, the treatment has been a great investment. It has saved me so much time doing my makeup in the mornings!

Eye Creams and Eye Serums in Singapore
BIOEFFECT EGF Eye Serum, $124
Since hitting my forties, I’ve started to use eye creams more often as my skin has started to get a little darker and more tired-looking around my eyes. I was curious about this product as it involves bioengineering plants to replicate our skin’s EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) and help our cells repair and produce collagen.
The serum is definitely a little denser than others I’ve used so you don’t need a lot of it. After using it for almost a month, my skin does feel more hydrated. I suspect I’ll need more than just a good serum to improve my skin, but this is definitely one worth continuing to use for a long time to see its full benefits.

BSKIN Eye Care MultiTasking Power Serum (20ml), $105
Simply great! BSkin’s four-in-one serum is by far the best eye-care product I have used. It has everything that I need – that is, effectiveness in dealing with wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness and dryness around the eyes all at the same time. The light textured gel absorbs quickly, forming a subtle aqueous layer on the skin, leaving it firm with a comfortable feel. It doesn’t cause irritation, but invigorates the skin around the eyes and lightens up the dark areas. My eyes feel refreshed throughout the day when I’m using it – it’s one of those products that shows results after just a few uses.
The serum comes in a 20ml bottle, and I have been using it twice a day for two months now, with still plenty left.

Dr.Belter Quick Lift Eye Contour Collagen Patch Mask Set, $188
Most undereye products I’ve used are either quick creams or eye patches so I was slightly surprised to see that the Quick Lift Eye Contour Set requires a bit of navigation – each box comes with 10 pairs of collagen patches with a vial of eye lift essence.
Applying the essence and collagen pads to my undereye area felt pleasant and cooling. There was no drag or tightening sensation. What I also loved is how supple the undereye area feels right after application, when you gently tap the remaining essence into the skin.
While I didn’t observe drastic changes, I definitely felt like my undereye skin maintained its plumpness for the few weeks I used the product. I would continue using it to see if there are any long-term improvements.

Nuggela & Sulé Amazonic Serum Eyelashes, $79.90
I have never used an eyelash growth serum before and was admittedly sceptical about it really giving visible results. What I like about this product is that it comes with a double applicator and thus does double duty. One side contains a serum to strengthen your lashes, and the other a serum to volumise.
Both eyelash serums contain a potent blend of nourishing ingredients that will condition sparse lashes and support growth. It takes time before you notice any difference, so don’t give up. I used it daily for over four weeks when I was beginning to see some noticeable difference. Don’t expect some dramatic TikTok results, but if you want stronger lashes and a bit more volume, you may want to give this a try – it worked for me!
None of the ingredients caused any eyelid irritation, so it’s a good pick for those of us with more sensitive skin.

Codex Beauty Bia Hydrating Eye Gel Cream, $61
“The skin around my eyes needs a lot of moisture. I always use an eye cream first thing in the morning when my eyes are at their absolute puffiest. This cream has a beautiful consistency, is lightweight and not greasy. Most of its ingredients are from organic farming, including cucumber, arnica oil and bladderwrack (a type of seaweed). It is certified as a cruelty-free product by the Leaping Bunny Program.
I found the gel cream perfect to use under concealer, as it creates a moisture-retentive film and smoothens the eye contour area for longer. My concealer didn’t come up looking patchy or creased and my eyes looked less fatigued.”
– Karin Galley
BEMA Bio Face Double Lifting Serum 30ml, $86
I first got to know BEMA Bio Face last year when I reviewed the lifting cream, which I thought was amazing. This year, I got to try out the Double Lifting Serum, which absorbs quite quickly into the skin and gives you elasticity and glow. For me, this one is a winner.
I used it twice a day after washing my face and using a toner. The price is slightly steep but I think it’s worth the investment. This is especially true if you’re in your forties (it’s recommended for mature skin) and are looking for something light and lovelysmelling. The serum is made in Italy and is also parabenfree and sulphate-free.
– Susan Knudsen-Pickles
Norel AteloCollagen Eye Booster Serum, $88
When it comes to my eye care, I definitely need a bit of help. It was lovely to sample the Norel AteloCollagen Eye Booster Serum as I’d heard great things. It’s an amazing product for dehydration, something that I can’t seem to get rid of. It specialises in improving hydration and activating collagen, and really helped in my case. My under-eye dark circles seemed to lighten and the skin wasn’t as wrinkled – a more hydrated look which helped me feel refreshed. It’s soothing and a small amount is enough to be gently massaged into the skin.

More Eye Treatments in Singapore to try
Bojin Eye Treatment
The art of Bojin may have been around for ages, but the beauty industry has only recently discovered the wonders of this traditional Chinese acupressure massage.
With their Signature Revitalising Bojin Eye Treatment, your therapist will manually massage the serum into your eye area using the pointed ends of a rod. It’s all about targeting meridian points near the eyes to promote a healthy flow of qi and to boost healthy blood circulation. The result? Lifted eye contours for younger eyes.
Meanwhile, the spa’s Eye Spa begins with a shot from a collagen-filled micro syringe. But cheer up, because you’ll soon be rewarded with a relaxing eye massage and eye mask imbued with – surprise, surprise! – more collagen. After all these collagen-boosting infusions, one can expect a brighter and smoother eye area.
The brand uses its own in-house herbal skincare line, which is designed to address multiple skin concerns. Developed after four years of close collaboration with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) experts and rigorous testing, the products marry traditional Chinese herbs such as ginseng extract, reishi mushrooms and snow lotus extract with popular natural skincare ingredients such as rice ferment filtrate and blue copper peptide – the last one has been likened to nature’s Botox!
Radiofrequency for crows feet
Believe it or not, beauty does not always have to equal pain. Chez Moi shows us how it’s done with the RF Advanced Eye Indulgence Treatment, which blends painless radiofrequency technology and active skincare ingredients to keep your eyes looking young and healthy.
Unlike eye creams and serums that reach only the topmost layer of the skin, radiofrequency devices help unleash the product’s full potential by allowing it to penetrate deeper and further into the skin using heat.
The RF Advanced Eye Indulgence treatment includes two masks: an active firming mask and a revitalising eye mask. The first activates microcirculation and lymph flow, providing quick relief for puffy and tired eyes, while the latter contains active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, algae extract and calcium to hydrate, tighten and plump up the eye area.
