Singapore Facial Review: Experience at Spa By Face Bistro

Contributor of Singapore Facial Review: Experience at Spa By Face Bistro

Writer H is a girl who is the nightmare of all beauticians. She loves sports, especially those in the sun. No surprise, she has damaged skin, decorated with freckles. She went through severe acne through her adolescent years. Since then, she has been interested in beauty, and enjoys indulging in beauty treatments like manicures, massages, but has developed a slight phobia for facial treatments.

The Wellnessly Team swung by Spa by Face Bistro recently while we were at Holland Village. Drawn to the Japanese characters beneath the signage, we decided to pop in for a look.

Opened by celebrity make-up artist, Dily Wang, Spa By Face Bistro only uses Japanese skin-care and make up products. Face Bistro provides niche skincare and make-up products from Japan that are tailored for the Asian skin.

The interior of the shop is minimalistic and calming. With one hidden passageway to a cluster of private rooms where the beauty services are provided, the other part of the shop is tastefully showcases the different skincare and make-up products.

The Service

While I was with the team, I was drawn to their off peak promotion (http://www.beaupass.com/sg/businesses/face-bistro-holland-village) at $68 for a Clear Cleasing Facial, and I decided to give it a shot. I haven’t indulged in a facial for more than a year – don’t judge me.

I booked through the Wellnessly platform and my appointment for the next day was confirmed within a couple of hours. This was not a sponsored service by Face Bistro.  

When I arrived, I was brought into a clean and cosy room that boasted of a fluffy comforter and a towel lined pillow. I had to first change into a robe that was a tube dress, and what I really liked was that it was not worn out and loose.

While the room was small, it wasn’t cluttered. The room wasn’t exactly soundproof - you will definitely hear footsteps and conversations outside the door, but the staff and other customers were conscious to keep their volume low.

My beautician was a lady who was polite but did not make any small talk. Throughout the entire appointment, there weren’t any conversations other than “when was the last time you did your facial?” and “you should do the AHA facial to help with your extraction.”

And so I upgraded to the AHA facial that cost me $148 in the end.

The AHA facial involves applying (I believe) AHA on your skin before extraction to help with removing of the clogs. The beautician didn’t warn me before application that it was going to itch a little since it was an acid. I would prefer to have been pre-empted about the discomfort of the AHA solution. Fortunately it only lasted for about 10 minutes tops before she came in for extraction.

Extraction was a breeze, there were some intense wrestling for stubborn blackheads, but other than that, she was gentle and thorough. I was glad that most of my clogs were cleared, and there weren’t any bleeding or bruises from the extraction.

To prevent me from breaking out, the beautician had to replace my massage with a cooling mask – which was quite a treat. It was a heavy mask that she applied over my face, including my eyes, and it was soothing to the just-extracted skin. I fell asleep during this mask, only woken up by the commotion next door when the customer finished her treatment.

Thoughts

The experience was pampering and therapeutic. I left the place for another meeting confidently without make up. I was really impressed by how clean my face was, and it was the first time my skin wasn’t red and angry after a facial.

There was no hard selling involved, no packages or products pushed to you while making payment. I appreciated this about Face Bistro!

Walked past did shop and decided to enquire about their eyebrow embroidery (i did not look online for reviews or anything. chanced upon the shop). Was told by the sales person that there is only 2 packages - $380 vs $980. They obviously tried to sell me the $980 service (no downtime. effect of this looks like you've shaded your eyebrows) by telling me the cons of the $380 service (downtime of 3-5 days i.e. cannot wash eyebrows/touch water on eyebrows for 3-5 days. effect of this is a line-by-line drawn on your eyebrow to mimic them). paid a total of $1018 ($980+$38 for a soothing gel) The treatment was almost painless (minimal pain) and the beautician did a good job in designing my brows (2 different designs to choose from) before finally proceeding. i'm very satisfied with their service in general but dissatisfied later that i found out through searching online that there were many intermediate price range, which i was not informed about despite specifically asking 2-3 times as i was quite taken aback that the price was so steep.If i had been informed about the differences between the services, i might have made a more informed choice..

My first experience with jap salon. Went for haircut yesterday. Overall service was good. But i expect a better skill from director level. Not worth the money of $80 just for a normal haircut. After haircut my hair look frizzier. Doesnt meet my overall expectation.
