We’ve rounded up our favourite facial spots in Singapore so you can book that perfect treatment now – click below to skip to the type of spa you’re after!
My Cozy Room Boutique Spa
Renowned as one of the best spas to get an almost painless yet thorough extraction, My Cozy Room located just off Orchard Road is a haven for mamas in need of some skin TLC. Their signature Premium Pore Extraction Facial Treatment is recommended for those with blackheads, clogged pores and acne. It lasts 120 minutes and consists of a whopping 20 steps, from thorough makeup removal to skin analysis, a high frequency treatment, lymphatic drainage and a number of purifying masks in between – complete with a rejuvenating head, shoulder and hand massage!
The award-winning boutique spa is housed in a plush heritage house on Cairnhill Road; stepping into it feels like walking into a perfect mini oasis. All products are by German natural plant-based and paraben-free brand BABOR, which focuses on removing unwanted shine and prevents excessive sebum production. Want to go all out? Try finishing off your facial treatment with their Premium RF Eye Treatment with Collagen Mask, perfect for puffy and tired eyes. This collagen-boosting treatment will lift your skin and reduce fine lines around your delicate eye area to reveal brighter, refreshed eyes. Did someone say ‘non-surgical eye lift’?

Facia Ginza Singapore
Prepare to zone out and zen out at Facia Ginza, mama. With soft lighting and lots of calming green accents, the facial salon proves itself to be a private sanctuary with an authentic Japanese ambience. Their trademark facial is the Premium Facial Care, a non-invasive 90-minute treatment which consists of their Signature Small Face Care (a therapy that combines osteopathic and aesthetic treatment) and a clinical-grade skincare treatment of choice: Brightening, Moisturising or Pore Cleansing. The Small Face Care is a facial massage technique originating from Ginza, Japan, developed by Facia Ginza and a team of orthopaedic doctors. By stimulating the bones through muscle, it improves blood circulation and encourages the discharge of impurities from the skin. Through the treatment, you’ll notice more radiant skin, reduced sagging, improvement in skin complexion, a relief from stiff shoulders and stiff neck, and even a slimmer face shape! This gentle facial does not involve extractions, and has zero downtime. Small Face Care is not suitable for pregnant mamas.
First-time customers can enjoy the Premium Facial Care at just $128 (U.P. $248+)! Quote Sassy Mama to enjoy a free Wove Revitalising Mask worth $53.50

We’re longtime fans of EstheClinic’s hair removal services (Ed’s note: I’m currently in the midst of trying their award-winning Silky Smooth IPL Permanent Hair Removal treatment and I gotta say, so far, so smooth! – Syazana), so adding their IPL Facials as the next thing on our list of beauty treatments to try is only natural. The French beauty clinic’s Glow to Go IPL Facial Rejuvenation treatment uses the most advanced technology to reduce every skin’s enemy: pigmentation and enlarged pores. Zap fatigued skin back to youth with the painless 20-minute treatment and you may just see results right after your first session! This means a boost in cellular metabolism, increased collagen production and a better rate in skin regeneration. The result? A more even-toned complexion, with minimised pores and smoother, glowy skin. Estheclinic suggests about 6 to 10 sessions every 2 to 3 weeks to see continuous improvement, but it all depends on what your specialist recommends you on your free personalised consultation.
