I’ve always wanted to have an Aunt Agony column and now we do – only ours is a beauty column! Entitled “Dear Pauline”, we will have it up on WearOhWhere for just 3 months and the first is up here! Like our #BareWithMe campaign, we collaborate with different women from all walks of life. Still centred on honest conversations, we stack up their beauty and skincare woes against our MD Pauline Ng’s skincare savvy / prowess / expertise. Can Pauline answer them all?

(Read our very first #BareWithMe story here if you haven’t yet done so!)

We had to do this first column ourselves, but we really want this to be all about you! After all, what’s a beauty column without answering our readers’ questions? You’ll have 2 more chances to throw us beauty and skincare questions you’ve always wondered about, and we’ll have them answered in the next post. So, read our first #DearPauline exchange with MTV VJ Hanli Hoeffer here, and leave us a comment below to share your woes! We promise to be honest.

And one last thing… #DearPauline isn’t going to be your typical beauty column where we answer only skincare woes. Our candid, open conversation goes beyond skin deep, as we take a deep dive into Hanli’s life as a teen, her definition of beauty, and how she really feels about being 1.75m tall… amongst other things. You might just find yourself struck by honest truths like

“Spend time in the nude more often, laugh at yourself when you can… and learn to let go of the things you can’t control.”

How can we not love this girl?

Read our first #DearPauline exchange with Hanli here!  And remember to pop us some questions (:

It’s been a flurry of quick tips and skin hacks to take you through the festive season… But now that’s over, we’re taking a breather from all of that today! 2018 is so exciting for us in so many ways, and we’d love to share this with you. To kickstart the year, we’re taking #FoundationFreeConfidence and transparency to a whole new level with our #BareWithMe campaign.

In collaboration with @WearOhWhere, #BareWithMe seeks honest, open conversations with women from all walks of life to uncover their stories. In celebration of the beauty of realness, these ladies will share their thoughts, feelings and everything in between about themselves, their journeys, their Nows, and then beyond. We hope they inspire you as much as they do us: to be brave and confident in your own skin – from the inside out.

And the first to front this new series? A beautiful, talented woman – Lucinda Law, botanical artist and founder of Within.sg.

#BareWithMe: Lucinda Law shares her story and jumps into the tub with us

Our photoshoot was done way back in November at the very lush Lloyd’s Inn (that’s two months of excitement we had to hold in)! We hopped in and out of the tub for that perfect shot, talked about pirates and spontaneous getaways… We won’t say much more because Lucinda’s full story is right up here, and hers is truly an inspiring read.

Till the next update on our second prong of this campaign (next month), stay confident, stay real, and dare to #BareWithMe!

Stay True,

After hearing about our favourite products (Check out our #PorcelainMustHaves here), we’re back with part 2 – Our Favourite Treatments. Our team had a really hard time picking out our favourites, as we love all our facials!

OxyRevive/OxyRevive Plus

“I have a low threshold for pain and that’s why OxyRevive Plus is a great alternative to extractions for me. It leaves my skin super supple and bright, and it’s topped off with a relaxing shiatsu facial massage which is spot on.” – Jacqueline Nonis, Assistant Manager

“OxyRevive helps me achieve a smoother complexion with a radiant after glow. I’ll say it is hydrating, powerful yet relaxing!” – Jazlyn, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“I love the brightening effects and my face feels much smoother after the end of the facial. Just a tip, do it together with RevitalEye Luxx which will help to reduce puffiness and dark circles!” – Julyha, Porcelain’s Client Relations Executive

Cryotherapy Facial

“Cryo is my favourite facial! It tightens my pores and I feel like Snow White after that. Haha! I feel that this is more effective for my skin, as my skin is rather sensitive. The cooling therapy helps to calm my skin, and it’s very comfortable!” – Michelle, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“My face looks significantly brighter after Cryotherapy. With the use of Balance Essence in my treatment, I experienced significantly lesser blackheads. – Zane Foo, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“Cryotherapy helps brighten my skin, reduce pore size and even lighten scars and marks! It’s chilling on my skin, and lessens the congestion. Definitely my fav!” – Stella, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

Quintessential Facial

“Best extraction facial ever. It’s no wonder that it is so highly raved. Post treatment, I usually apply lots of soothing gel and aloe gel to speed up the recovery process, and the results are amazing! It achieves the translucent, porcelain skin I have always wanted.” – Xin Na, Porcelain’s Business Development Executive

“The Quintessential Facial really changed my skin after just one treatment! The therapists are very skilled and thorough in their extractions, and I see vast improvements in my skin condition after.” – Calista, Porcelain’s Digital Marketing Intern

“My skin feels smoother, cleaner and brighter after treatment. After following up regularly, I can confidently leave my house foundation-free!” – Isabelle, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

Illuminate Facial

“The difference right after Illuminate treatment totally wowed me! Prior to the treatment my skin was dull and lifeless. The OxyPulse massage during the facial was very relaxing and the pampering shoulder massage at the end was a nice touch. After the treatment I was awed by the instant afterglow on my skin.” – Jasmine, Porcelain’s Marketing Manager

“This is tough… I love all Porcelain treatments!! They complement each other well, and with a treatment plan catered to my skin concerns, my skin improved tremendously. My fav would be Illuminate facial as my face glows with radiance after EVERY treatment without fail! It stands out from other microdermabrasion facials as every step of the entire facial is well thought out – For example, after the diamond exfoliation, the wine peel helps to renew our skin cells. This is followed by the draining of toxins with the OxyPulse massage and ends off with lots of hydration for the skin with our custom blended mask. It’s the PERFECT relaxing facial and the BEST substitute for customers who aren’t looking at extraction facials.” – Julynn, Porcelain’s Operation Manager

“Illuminate is my favourite treatment because there’s nothing better than a promise living up to its name, literally. A go-to treatment whenever I need a pick me up, or simply to look 100 times better. It doesn’t hurt that the glow lasts for ages!” – Samantha, Porcelain’s Marketing Executive

Proionic Facial

“It’s so hard to choose my favourite facial! It’s like asking me to choose my favourite child. But if I really had to pick, I’ll choose Proionic. It has anti-aging benefits and it is the perfect facial for busy and tired people like me!”– Pauline Ng, Porcelain’s Managing Director

“It’s really comfortable because it’s a warm treatment and I love how it massages my face, eyes, neck. Plus, it is really good for lifting & firming effects. The age-reversing technology is simply phenomenal!” – Aretha Ling, Senior Client Relations

“Proionic! I look younger after treatment, and the lifting and firming helps me get the V-shape contour.” – Tracie, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

Sun Rescue Facial

“Sun Rescue is my favourite because of the deep hydration my skin receives. It never fails to leave my skin baby soft to touch, super glowy and there’s nothing not to love about it. – June, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“It’s hydrating, comfortable and the effects are long lasting. My face stays bright and radiant for weeks and I love it as a pampering treat for my skin.”  – Sanny Chew, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“Soothe, Aloe Recovery Gel is definitely my favourite #PorcelainMustHave because it really lives up to everything an Aloe Vera promises – speedy healing properties and calms irritated, sensitive skin.” – Zane, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“Soothe, Hydro Cleanser is my favorite Porcelain Product because it helps hydrate my skin and works very well for my sensitive skin. It’s definitely my #PorcelainMustHave!” – Shirley, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“My #PorcelainMustHave will be Soothe, Hydro Cleanser. It’s very thorough even though it doesn’t contain any sulfates and the best part of this cleanser is that it doesn’t rip off any moisture off my skin. Instead, I could feel that my skin is more moisturized after switching to this cleanser.” – Jumaidah, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“It’s very natural and leaves my skin supple and clean after every use. Soothe, Hydro Cleanser is my #PorcelainMustHave!” – Tracie, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“I used to see doctor for my dehydrated skin and was even recommended not to use any cleansers to prevent my skin from deteriorating. Surprisingly, Hydro Cleanser works for me and my skin has now returned to supple and hydrated. So glad to have found this cleanser! :)” – Wynne, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

HydroCare, Bio-Cellulose Mask

“HydroCare Bio-Cellulose Mask is my #PorcelainMustHave as it smoothens and hydrates my skin while calming my sensitive skin. There’s never too many HydroCare Mask ” – Michelle, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“HydroCare Bio-Cellulose Mask has to be my #PorcelainMustHave. I’ve never tried any mask better than this. Its super moisturizing and the material is gentle for even my hypersensitive skin. It’s the best!!” – Stella, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

 

 

 

 

 

Revive, Glycolic Acid Toner

 

Revive Glycolic Toner“My #PorcelainMustHave would be Revive, Glycolic Acid Toner! It has a super refreshing touch to it. With its gentle exfoliation, I could feel that my skin is a lot softer and smoother.” – Jacqueline, Porcelain’s Assistant Manager

“It’s not drying at all for a Glycolic Toner and sometimes when my schedule gets a little hectic and I forgets to exfoliate, I depend on Revive, Glycolic Toner to help gently exfoliate my skin on a daily basis. Can’t help but to love this baby that keeps my skin brightened at all times! :D” – Carmen, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“Revive, Glycolic Acid Toner is my #PorcelainMustHave!! I’ve never actually thought that a toner could do so much good to a skin until I tried this. I love how it’s gentle and calming even though it contains Glycolic Acid (naturally derived from Sugar Cane though), and my skin actually feels cleaner and more supple with each use! LOVE IT!” – Xin Na, Porcelain’s Marcom Assistant

 

 

 

 

Balance, HydraClear Gel

Balance, Hydraclear Gel“My favourite Porcelain Product would have to be Balance, HydraClear Gel. It helps clear my pimples and at the same time not strip away my skin’s moisture. LOVE IT! ❤️❤️❤️ It’s definitely my #PorcelainMustHave!” – Mardiana, Porcelain’s Admin Executive

“Balance, HydraClear Gel is my #PorcelainMustHave because it really helps reduce and prevent congestion! I always tell my clients that prevention is better than cure and HydrClear Gel has worked wonders by proving itself to be the preventive one.” – Jenny, Porcelain’s Director Aesthetician

“I have very congested skin to start with and ever since I started using Balance, HydraClear Gel, I have seen significant improvement in my congestion and breakout. Compared to products I used to get from over-the-counter, this is non-drying (at all) and is suitable for my hypersensitive skin! I cannot live without this! :D” – June, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

 

 

 

 

Revive, Natural Skin Refiner

Revive, Botanical Skin Refiner - 15ml“My skin is really smooth and bright every time I exfoliate using Revive, Natural Skin Refiner. I even use it on my neck and I see a reduction in the fine lines around my neck after using it for awhile. It’s non-abrasive so my sensitive skin loves it!” – Jazlyn, Porcelain’s Beauty Therapist

“Revive, Natural Skin Refiner is my #PorcelainMustHave! Normally when my skin gets a little congested, I’ll use this as a mask instead and it helps reduce the congestion which may eventually lead to a breakout. I bring it everywhere I go! As an exfoliator, as a mask – this has helped keep my skin healthy and glowing.” – Pauline, Porcelain’s Managing Director

“Exfoliation was never a part of my skincare regime as I prevent using scrubs on my sensitive skin. Ever since I got to try Revive, Natural Skin Refiner, I cannot do without exfoliation. The difference is drastic and I could actually see my skin getting brighter and smoother. To top that, my favourite part of this exfoliator is that it doesn’t use micro-beads to exfoliate, but Natural Enzymes to soften the dead skin cells so it definitely works for my skin! My one true #PorcelainMustHave.” – Azlin, Porcelain’s HR & Accounts Manager

 

The Revive, Makeup Cleanser is a beautifully crafted product that harnesses the benefits of the exquisite Orchid Flowers Extract to produce a hydrating, mild, yet powerful pre-cleanser.

This August, we celebrate 50 years of independence of our beautiful island home by giving back to our adopted charity – O’Joy Elderly Services. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of Revive, Makeup Cleanser will be donated to O’Joy Elderly Services.
