LIFESTYLE@LXG: Chen Chen tries the Thalasso facial at Immortelle Atelier!


Many people always stare at me in disbelief when I tell them my beauty routine consists only of cleansing and moisturizing. Period. Yes, that’s how lazy I am when it comes my skin care. I find it chore to even slap on sunscreen before heading out, let alone go for a facial.

So when my girlfriend raved to me about this really fabulous facial she’d had I just brushed it aside. Until I checked myself out in the mirror one day and had the shock of my life – tiny bumps lined my forehead, my cheeks were dehydrated and I looked like l’ve been punched in the eyes. Horrified by this discovery I called  my girlfriend up and made her book me an appointment with her facialist, pronto.

And thats how I found myself at Immortelle Aterlier, two days later.
The salon, although small and cozy, pays great attention to ensuring that customers get only the best. The bed linen is super luxe and so is the robe. The attention to detail is impressive!


After a detailed skin assessment, my beauty therapist recommended two treatments for me – the Thalasso Facial and Meridian Eyecare Treatment.

The first is designed to rejuvenate tired skin and comprises of an active ingredient specifically tailored for my skin type. It is then followed by a micro-algae mask that helps to rebalance and delivers long-lasting hydration deep into the skin. The latter incorporates the “Guasha” method (a form of traditional Chinese therapy), and uses a smooth bone to apply pressure and relax the eye area. Total bliss!! You MUST try their eye treatment and the best part?its only $48 by itself! 

I must say that the treatments felt really luxurious and pampering! My therapist's masterful massage strokes put me in a totally relaxed, almost meditative state, and I loved the rich and soothing scents of the Maria Galland products used.

More importantly, my skin felt much smoother and hydrated, and I no longer look like Kungfu Panda!

To try out the treatments for yourself, visit Immortelle Atelier at 101 Thomson Road, United Square Shopping Mall #02-08B. Tel: 6259 9001
