Chrissy
Salon Manager of Face Plus by Yamano

Overview

$200 for not one but TWO Facials by a Japanese Facial Salon?

While it may sound unbelievable, we've gone down and visited this gem of a salon located right at level 4 of Orchard Central: Face Plus by Yamano.

Those who're well versed in Japanese skincare may find the name Yamano familiar. It is after all a subsidiary of Yamano / Doronko Cosmetics - the brand that specializes in using Amber and Clay in its beauty products.

Yes, Face Plus by Yamano is the facial salon under THIS Yamano. You can not only expect the therapists to use the White Clay here, they carry the entire Yamano series (including the super high end Kohaku Century Shiro) and use them exclusively during the facial!

If you don't yet know about Yamano, the products here include Doronko Clay, which can very gently remove dead skin and dirt thoroughly from your skin, making it perfect for those of us with sensitive and acne-prone skin. Beyond that, they are infused with the very valuable amber. Neither a crystal nor a mineral, amber is in a class of its own, a material that highly coveted for its healing properties. Originating from fossilised sap, amber contains succinic acid that aids in aerobic respiration of our cells and growth of new cells, stimulates hyaluronic acid production within the skin and fights free radicals to slow down aging! It is after a decade of research by Mikio Yamano and a laboratory in Japan that allows Yamano to incorporate amber in many of its singature products.

It is exactly this product that Face+ uses for its customers. Judging by the number of regular customers coming back to Face+ over the past 10 years and the flawless skin of its facial therapists, the Bidou product from Yamano appears to be working really well! 

That's the first thing we noticed when we got the chance to chat with Face+ therapists - their skin all look so supple and moisturized that they glow! We believe that facial therapists and their skin condition are often the best ambassadors for the quality of the facial and the facial products so we're really tempted to give Face+ a go!

Despite the more humble environment, the facial therapists here impress with their one of the best facial routines we've experienced. Whether in rhythm, pressure or accuracy of facial acupoints, the therapists here got it just right! Don't be surprised when you find your face glows for 2 weeks after the facial because its just so good!

As all facial therapists here have their facial routine standardized by the resident Japanese therapist Masayo, the facial feels amazingly good no matter who you choose. Apparently, all therapists here go through exams every few months to make sure that the facial feels exactly the same whether you're in Japan or here in Singapore.

Despite the use of quality products and one of the best facial massages we've experienced, we anticipated prices here to be expensive. Who knew that facials here cost $200 for TWO facials each month? That's the major draw of Yamano.

Believing that consistency is the key to healthy skin, Yamano offer low-priced facials for its members; pay $200 and you can come for 2 facials in a month! This price is so unbelievably low, it is probably cheaper than many of your salons in the neighbourhood - yet the quality of products and service is SO SO SO much better that we can't help but rave about it.

With zero hardselling, amazing massages and gentle facials suitable for sensitive and acne prone skin, Face Plus by Yamano is definitely among our favourite facial salons in Singapore!

Honest and good facial

Honest facial, professional therapists. Quality products from Japan. Have been with them for 10 years! Not pushy on sales, which is good for me! Products that I love: Clarifying lotion, zero serum milk and eye contour gel. (Review not yet verified)

Review for Face Plus by Yamano

Used to have really bad acne, but my skin condition has improved tremendously after my facial sessions with Yamano! My facial therapist Michelle has done a great job in explaining the different steps/products used during the facial. She would also recommend the types of products to use based on my skin condition, and giving me advices on how I can maintain good skin care at home. I always look forward to my facial sessions with Yamano. Also, they do not hard sell products - (which I had previously bad experiences with) and would also recommend them based on your skin condition. Overall a pleasant experience with Yamano so far, highly recommended!

Relaxing and rejuvenating

Review for Roxanne

The facial has definitely help to improve my skin condition. There is no extraction of pimples which I hated the most. The almost 1.5 hours of facial is definitely something I looked forward to. They do not hard sell products and will recommend based on skin conditions and needs. Rox has done a fantastic job in recommending me products to use and maintain my skin at home. Appointment is easy to reschedule either via call or whatsapp.

Totally in love with the facial experience @ Yamano

Review for Chrissy

Yamano brings facial to a whole level for me. I've very bad experiences with facial in the past. Blotchy red marks caused by super pain extractions (ouch ?) and hard sell tactics followed by some bad attitude when I refused to sign up for their package. TBH I have my reservations when I went to Yamano cos its not widely advertised in Sg. My perception changed when my therapist (Chrissy) started to analyse my skin and intro the facial procedure to me. Chris mentioned that they dont do extraction (hurray!!) and they use machine to remove the dead skin cells in order for better cleansing and penetration. The whole process was sheer pampering. The light strokes used when cleaning the face, the use of the amber stone and the massage was so relaxing that I fell asleep for most of the session. Hence I cant really name all the procedures she uses. Post facial Chris only explained to me on the conditions of my skin and what kind of products is suitable for me. No mentioned of their package and products. I had ask her what are the different packages that are suitable for me. Now Im a happy customer of Yamano and looking forward to my next facial. Highly recommend for ladies out there that is turn off by the pain of extraction and hard sell tactics and looking for a pampering and spa like facial experience.

Facial treatment

Review for Chrissy

Is a great experience in Faceplus by Yamano. Been to few Japanese salons in Singapore and Bangkok, feels this is the best. With soft touch feel, detail and techniques really makes me doze off immediately every time. Very relaxing. Moreover the facial which I did, have a very good result. Been here for almost a year. Chance it by reading beauty undercover. Definitely a best salon which I had went with no pushy sales. The products are very suitable for me as well though are expensive but willing to spend as long can treat my face.

I like the atmosphere, technique and products. Yamano products are very suitable for me. Even my skin condition is in trouble, treatment and products could help improving.

This is not related to beauty service, but just wondering if you have any service that I can charge smartphone during treatment that would be really helpful. Thank You.

Service is excellent from the start

Review for Roxanne

Roxanne takes care to analyse my skin condition and chooses the suitable products for my skin. Her service is excellent from the start, ensuring the whole facial process is a comfortable and enjoyable one, like offering drinks and a foot pillow. I especially love that the treatment is full of massage which helps me to relax and does not have the conventional extraction in the routine.
