We don't often recommend local facial salons because many have disappointed us with bad service and bad skin knowledge.
Geranium Skin & Hair Boutique is one of the few exceptional facial salons we truly trust and here are the 10 reasons why...
(Reasons are derived from actual customer testimonials!)
Extractions and exfoliations are one of the main reasons why us ladies like to go to facials. We just don't like seeing those blackheads on our faces!
One thing that makes Geranium stands out is their painless extraction. Out of the 5 ladies we spoke to, all 5 love how painless the extractions at Geranium is.
The reason why it is painless is that they take the time to slowly coax the blackheads out from all angles instead of forcefully removing it.
We believe this should be the way because this reduces any possibility of scarring from blackheads in the future!
Extraction is painless at some salons... because the extraction is not thorough.
This is not the case at Geranium.
To make sure that the extractions are done as thoroughly as possible, they first do top layer exfoliation with enzymes after cleansing to open up the pores.
They then use a variety of tools to gently remove the blackheads.
They also walk you through the process so that you are aware of what is happening.
Instead of rushing through the process, the therapists at Geranium spend a good amount of time to gently remove all that gunk from your face through extractions... it can take up to one hour for some customers!
As the extraction is gentle but effective, customers don't walk out of the salon with reddish faces.
To minimize any swelling (if at all), they also use a very high quality mask that will calm the skin down afterwards.
This means that you can go out with your friends afterwards and you'd still look fine!
Aside from the thorough extractions, massages were another reason why so many customers come back to Geranium.
Who doesn't love a good massage especially after a long day at work?
No matter how good the service and massage is, it must prove effective for our face before we will consider coming back.
We're therefore not surprised to see so many reviews talking about how effective their treatments are!
Many of us have differing facial conditions but we're glad to find that Geranium has just the right treatment to cater for us all.
From microneedling to Guasha or antioxidant brightening treatment, it has helped the ladies above improve their skin condition significantly!
As effective the treatment may be, a good experience makes it easier for us to come back... a facial is after all one of the few pleasures we women treat ourselves with!
We're therefore glad to see that every single review of Geranium never fails to mention how welcoming the team is.
Look at how happy the customers are with their therapists and you'll know this is a place you can always come back to!
There are many well-known facial salons out there but many of them are run by businessmen or business ladies hoping to make a lot of money from us ladies.
Geranium is one of the few where the owner is a highly principled lady who runs the salon with a strong commitment to service and quality. She herself is a Singaporean facial therapist who has served customers for over two decades.
Grace is the owner of Geranium (the lady on the right)
In fact, this review is written by her customer:
Grace continually makes the effort to find out what's the latest treatments in the industry and tries it herself before introducing to customers.
She is also very strict on customer service and consistently seeks feedback on the services in Geranium.
Her passionate and value-centred leadership is the reason why we trust Geranium so much!
One of Grace's very important principle is that customers must enjoy their experience at Geranium.
That means a no-pressure facial experience.
There are already too many salons out there who give facial salons a bad name by pestering you to buy a package when you just want to test out a facial.
Hence, Grace forbids her therapists from hardselling customers. Although they do introduce their packages, the therapist does not actively push them. A no means a no and that's why the reviews on Beauty Undercover are all positive!
It is easier to go back to a salon when the location isn't very far away from your house / workplace.
Geranium is located within walking distance of Lavender MRT at BH Building!
