When it comes to skincare, we’re constantly searching for that miracle product that will help us achieve the covetable smooth, flawless and porcelain skin often only seen on models and celebrities. Yet most products that promise amazing results usually don’t measure up to expectations. Having flawless, evenly-toned skin that’s free of blemishes takes more than a miracle cure because while we would all love to have instantly flawless skin, achieving beautiful skin begins with a religious skin care routine and catered to the needs of each individual’s unique skin tone and type. To this end, none understands this better than Porcelain, The Face Spa.
The home-grown brand has received international acclaim as a master of their craft, receiving numerous accolades such as the Best Luxury Beauty Spa in Asia at the World Luxury Spa Awards consecutively for the last five years, and currently boasts a waitlist of between four and six weeks for its facial treatments. Together, the mother and daughter duo, Jenny Teng and Pauline Ng, have been dedicated to solidifying Porcelain, The Face Spa’s reputation as a leading trusted provider of premium facials with its own exclusive line of skincare products. To help you achieve the skin you’ve always desired, all aestheticians are selected based on skills and passion, and undergo a rigorous minimum of 500 in-house training hours.
Porcelain’s exclusive range of take-home skincare products evokes the benefits of an in-spa treatment daily as part of your skincare routine to complement regular facial treatments. Here are our top picks from Porcelain’s very own skincare line that aim to help restore your skin’s radiance and vitality from within.
Porcelain Balance Sebum Control Essence, $41 for 8 ml
This award-winning essence boasts age-defying as well as acne-fighting properties.
Utilising Tea Tree Extract, it regulates sebum production and helps maintain skin’s pH levels to battle acne at the root. In addition, Esculin helps to retain collagen and elastin, keeping your skin looking younger and firmer while 50% Sodium Hyaluronate - which is smaller in size than hyaluronic acid and is therefore more easily absorbed – moisturises deeply and improves skin elasticity.
Porcelain Flawless Skin Perfecting Moisturiser with SPF 20, $165 for 50 ml
Doubling up as a moisturiser and sunscreen in one, the Flawless Skin Perfecting Moisturizer in Light is ideal for the time-strapped woman. It’s non-comedogenic, oil- and paraben-free, and helps prevent congestion that may lead to breakouts or milia seed formation. This lightweight product that leaves a sheer tint, offers light coverage while providing defence against the sun’s damaging rays with broad-spectrum protection and SPF 20.
Porcelain HydroCare Bio-Cellulose Masks, $190 for a box of 6
Give yourself a luxe treat this festive season with the Porcelain Hydrocare Biocellulose Mask, packed rich with about 30ml of serum. This refreshing, oil-free formula contains a powerful blend of natural ingredients like Litchi Seed Extract to fight free radicals and boost collagen production, Cactus Extract to soothe, hydrate and prevent inflammation, as well as Fig Fruit Extract, which clarifies skin and is rich in Vitamin A for anti-ageing benefits. The mask also contains Sodium Hyaluronate and Ceramide, which help to deeply moisturise skin. Suitable for all skin types, this mask is perfect for use after exfoliation and also doubles up as an eye mask to prevent puffiness and reverse signs of ageing.
Porcelain Revive Skin Refiner, $98 for 50 ml
This gentle and non-abrasive exfoliator suited for all skin types. It gets rid of surface buildup, dramatically improving skin radiance and texture. Instead of containing beads to physically scrub away impurities, this advanced formula makes use of natural enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal. It also contains Natural Aloe and Natto extracts to pump moisture into skin.
