I always look forward to having my monthly facial. Not only does it clear out the gunk from my congested and often sensitive skin, getting a facial also forces me to relax for a while! I’m constantly on the lookout for a good facial near me, and this new Holland Village salon seems to tick all my boxes.
Founded in Shanghai in 2015, high-end skincare, beauty and lifestyle concept store Kelly Oriental has opened its first overseas outpost in Singapore! Located on a quiet corner along a stretch of Holland Avenue, it’s a cool new addition to the Holland Village neighbourhood. The luxury skincare brand and salon is known for incorporating traditional Chinese herbs into its range of products and facials for sensitive skin and ageing concerns. Backed by its own scientific research team and some of the most advanced technologies in the field, their formulas are carefully crafted to meet modern needs. They’re the ideal blend of science and nature, with patented formulas to boost skin rejuvenation, increase elasticity and restore youthfulness, while soothing even the most sensitive skin.
They first started as a problem-solving skincare range to target common skin issues like eczema and acne. In fact, the company strictly adheres to a “no-eight-additives” rule; each product is formulated without added pigments, fragrances, hormones, fluorescent agents, artificial surfactants, alcohol, heavy metals or preservatives.
A popular item available both in-store and online is the range of Exquisite Herbal-blend Powder Masks. Each blend is specially developed with the brand’s proprietary mix of Chinese herbal extracts to suit different skin needs. For example, the Acne Clean mask helps to calm irritated skin; the Nutritious mask, meanwhile, brightens and nourishes the complexion in the long-run. There’s also the all-in-one elixir, the Supreme Effects Cream. This best-selling moisturiser contains botanical extracts of bisabolol and ginger root to reduce skin inflammation, probiotics to repair UV damage, and jojoba oil to improve skin elasticity.
The skincare brand also offers a small line of makeup products like the Air Cushion BB Cream, a lightweight cushion foundation that conceals spots and corrects uneven skin tone. In addition, keep your eyes peeled for their up-and-coming launch of hair and body-care products!
This salon in Holland Village is conveniently located right beside the MRT – perfect for when I’m up for a relaxing facial near me! The therapists use a combination of top quality, salon-grade skincare from Switzerland and their own in-house range. Expect a cool mix of tried-and-tested techniques like bojin, a traditional facial massage that uses a specialised tool to stimulate and massage pressure points, used alongside modern machines. Suitable for sensitive skin, the facials are tailored to your skin condition.
Post-treatment, enjoy a hot tea of your choice, freshly brewed with health-boosting ingredients like dried dates. Unwind for a bit at the waiting area; we can’t think of a more relaxing experience than this!
A unique concept
The Holland Village salon also houses a fresh flower bar, where you can buy a customised bouquet after your facial. The team imports its seasonal blooms weekly from Yunnan in China, as well as Holland and Japan; so you can expect a decent selection that varies throughout the year. We think it’s the perfect way to treat your Mum or bestie – first, to a luxurious facial, and then a beautifully arranged bouquet with the freshest picks! The flowers are also available for delivery, pickup and on a weekly subscription basis.
How membership works
They offer an easy and fuss-free tiered membership program. There’s no package involved; instead, you get discounts on the facials and skincare products based how much you spend. For example, you get 5 percent off when you spent $1000; 10 percent off with a $2000 spend; and 20 percent off when you spend $5000. For big spenders of $10,000 and more, you’ll enjoy a sweet 30 percent discount. Through 31 May 2021, enjoy even greater savings! You get 10 percent off when you spend $1000; 20 percent off when you spend $3000; 30 percent off when you spend $5000 and 40 percent off when you spend $10,000.
