Pürovel Spa at Swissôtel Merchant Court

7 months ago / beauty

In need of skin hydration?

I don't usually go for facials and prefer to see my doctor for treatments instead, mostly cause I find the facials in Singapore to be overpriced and they tend to do more harm than good for my dry, sensitive skin. (Extractions are a TOTAL nightmare!)

When I first heard about Pürovel Spa & Sport, however, a quick search on the Internet left me really intrigued about this first luxury Swiss spa in the region and their treatments inspired by the natural Alpine seasons and nature. The treatments available are designed to restore your vitality, naturally and so, an appointment was promptly booked.

Upon arriving at the spa, I was floored by the clean and contemporary design of the place which draws inspiration from the mountains and valleys of Switzerland. Unlike other international spa brands which focus solely on relaxation, Pürovel’s mission is to provide guests and local clients with an Alpine-inspired solution for a natural and vitality-inspired lifestyle. Essential oils distilled from organic herbs and flowers grown in the Pürovel fields in Switzerland are specially selected for their natural properties to be used in their signature treatments.

A quick assessment of my skin needs (I told you it's severely dehydrated) was done with the spa manager and I was recommended the Intraceuticals Intense Hydration Rejuvenate Facial (60 min).

Gotta love the thick, plush robes provided

Intraceuticals is a non-invasive oxygen treatment technology well-loved by celebrities and skin care professionals worldwide. The oxygen infusion facials combine powerful anti-ageing ingredients, vitamins and antioxidants with multiweight hyaluronic acid to dramatically transform the look and feel of your skin.

This skin quenching treatment provides the ultimate in intense hydration. Perfect for all skin types, the Rejuvenate Serum contains vitamins and antioxidants that dramatically lift, tone and deeply hydrate the skin enhancing facial volume and improving the contour of the face. Results are instant and continue to improve the days following the facial providing a refreshing glow for the skin that reduces the fine lines and wrinkles.

I really enjoyed the pampering session - the ambience, the dim-but-not-too-dark lighting, the smell of the products which reminds me of flower fields, the room temperature and the gentle face massage by my therapist... I pretty much slept through it.
For me, what I like most is the luxury feel of the facial - it just felt that a lot of oxygen and antioxidant goodness was going deep into my skin throughout the 60 minutes and I felt thoroughly relaxed. You know how some facials get you more stressed than ever? With the rough cleansing and painful extractions that have you squirming and leaving the place with angry red marks all over your face?

Nope, none of that over here.

But it made a huge difference to my skin - I left the spa GLOWING. Even though I was meeting my girls after that for drinks at Collyer Quay, I didn't apply any makeup after the facial and I really like how I look in the sunset light. There was a certain "natural" radiance and perkiness to my skin, like it was all firm and plumped up and the lines that I used to get as a result of my dry skin (and well, age) were much less visible... even when I laugh.

It's been two weeks since the treatment and I still wake up to that natural glow every morning. It doesn't capture that well in photos but it's the I just slept 12 hours like a princess kinda "natural glow".

My acne scars also appear less obvious and there's definitely an improvement to the overall texture, firmness, smoothness of my skin.

My makeup goes on and sits better on my face too.

Maybe it's because of its proprietary 3-step Intraceuticals Hyaluronic Layering Process. The Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Essential 3 Step Pack, a homecare kit, is also available to help you get the most out of your facial treatments

I definitely recommend Pürovel Spa & Sport to you girls and it won't be long before I book my next session with them!
