today I've got a very special advertorial for you! I've written about this particular facial place and it's amazing services here, but that was awhile back, and some changes have been made. On top of that, there's a very special discount just for our readers during this GSS period! Read more to find out :)
The first, and most prominent, change is that the facial's location is no longer situated at Orchard Plaza, and is now at Forum Galleria instead. I know that this is a huge improvement for many who might feel irked by Orchard Plaza (based on the feedback I've received), saying that it's a slightly dodgy area and that they don't feel comfortable going there. Well no worries! Now it's been moved to a swanky new place right beside Hilton Hotel!
The exact address is: 583 Orchard Road, Forum Galleria #08-03 (via office lift), Singapore 238884
Contact: Amy (+65 9797 8559)
Der Anthyllis is not standalone shop, meaning that you wouldn't see the sign the moment you step out of the lift. Amy, my facial therapist, has a room inside a shop called Immanuel Beauty & Wellness. Do not belittle this idea though, because the ambience she has created in that room itself is spectacular. It is cosy and beautifully decorated.
As you can see in the pictures, everything is so wonderfully organized that it sets even the fussiest people's hearts at ease. I always feel surrounded by calm and serenity the moment I walk into the room; with the soft music playing in the background, accompanied with the most fragrant hot tea placed in my hands. You will never have had an experience like this before, I promise you.
The Facial Treatment
I love this about Amy's facials because they are all customized. I do not have to pay exorbitantly nor get tricked into little "terms and conditions" here and there just because she probably used 5g of a new product - I think you guys know facial places like that, because I do -_-.. Anyway! She constantly reassesses my skin with each visit and decides the best course of treatment for me.
Most of the time it's pretty typical (Cleansing, Steaming, Extraction, Masks) because I suppose my skin is not facing any major issues. Whilst I make a big hooha about my chin, I know people who definitely suffer way worse skin woes than I do... Amy is aware that I'm extremely particular about my skin, and that I get very (and legitimately) upset when my skin doesn't behave. For that, I really respect and appreciate her because she doesn't make light of my situation, no matter how small, and always reassures me that I can surely get better.
I am not gonna show you some really old messed up photos of my face and talk about how she saved my life with just facials alone (though you can click the link I gave in the first paragraph to see my experience). I think it is an important point to drive home that facials only AID the process of recovery and are not the end-all-be-all solution. Diligent skincare should be done at home as well.
However, I have to say that one way facial has helped me that I could have never achieved on my own is how much more even, radiant, and firm my skin has become than before. I no longer wake up in the morning with a ruddy dull look (though I do still have tiny pores at the inner corner of my cheeks) and my fine lines, as far as I know, are way better than people younger and of the same age as me!
Also, I hope I don't sound too complacent, but I do honestly feel proud that I need not wear any face/base makeup such as foundation or primer or bb cream whatsoever to feel confident enough to leave the house. I honestly just slap on sunblock, undereye concealer, eyeliner, blush, lipstick, and I'm good to go! 15 minutes is all I need (because I'm quite meticulous/slow when concealing my dark rings) and I think that's pretty good already!
So yes, after all that big talk, here's the deal. If you think I'm exaggerating, why not try out just one session for yourself?
From now till mid-August, Amy's offering a wonderful trial price of only $59 (and she never ever skimps on products used, no matter the price point).
Just quote "Samantha Ashley" for this special offer, and enjoy it, it's on us! ;)
As someone who's even tried the lousiest of facials in China, I think that price is more than okay! Especially for a location in Orchard Road! Since many of you have taken our advice on many beauty products and given us feedback on how much you like them, why not try this one out?
P/S: For those who think that facials are those "death traps" whereby your skin will get worse once your stop going back for them, don't be silly. Of course your skin requires maintenance to get consistent results, but even if you didn't go back, your skin will not deteriorate, I assure you! :)
