This feminine, cheerfully decorated space is dubbed Singapore’s first fully bespoke membership facial salon, and it also happens to be the winner of Best Bespoke Facial (Readers’ Favourite) in the Daily Vanity Spa & Hair Awards 2020.

Looking for a more hi-tech express facial? Peachy Skin bar also offers an Express Pro Facial Treatment (S$59), which lets you choose between the Chill Out (pore-tightening cryogenic facial) or Lit Up (skin-rejuvenating LED facial) options.
