My Lunchtime Beauty Fix At A Cocktail Bar

More like a swanky cocktail bar than an aesthetic clinic, the new SW1 Clinic at OUE Downtown Gallery serves up lunchtime bespoke facial treatments that rejuvenates the skin from under 30 minutes. Sprouted out from their popular flagship SW1 Clinic in Paragon Orchard, this new clinic brings their award-winning treatments to the CBD. If you have more time, you can choose add-ons and create a bespoke facial treatment that suits your skin needs. After hearing good reviews about SW1 Clinic‘s range of beauty treatments, I decided to head to their new outfit for one of their signature cocktail facials ($235.40).

I must say I was impressed by the clinic’s stylish exterior and decor. Outside, “holes” in their feature wall housed reels showcasing  SW1 Clinic’s doctors and their signature treatments.  To enter the premise, I picked up a red dial tone telephone to gain access into this private clinic. Greeted by friendly staff, I was brought swiftly to their private consultation room, where they explained their facial cocktails menu.

I dreaded my dull complexion and wanted to clarify and brighten my skin for Chinese New Year. After being guided through the comprehensive list of treatments, I selected the Martini Facial, a basic program consisting of 3 steps – clarify, purify and revivify.  I wanted to start with something simple since it was my first time there.

My clear-skinned therapist was both warm and very experienced.  The facial and the scent of their products were very soothing, and I soon drifted into a short snooze.  At the end of an hour, the treatment left my skin feeling squeaky clean and soft from the facial (and my mind revitalized from the power nap). And I loved the lasting glow it gave my skin. To maintain the results of my facial, I started on 2 products from the clinic’s physician-formulated skincare range – “Sleep Mode” an overnight clarifying treatment serum and “White Plasma” to help with my skin pigmentation.

Overall, I loved the experience at SW1 Clinic. Their  products are gentle, yet effective, and did not irritate my sensitive skin.  Can’t wait to head there for my next beauty fix.
