Indulging In First Class Beauty At T Galleria | Clozette

How could we say no to a first class ticket… to the beauty department? Beauty pleasure seekers, look no further. Returning for its third season is First Class Beauty, an annual campaign by DFS that celebrates beauty’s finest -- makeup, skincare, fragrance… you name it, they’ve got it.


For the whole month of August (from 5th August 2016 to 31st August 2016), shoppers will get to indulge in a pampering in-store experience that includes exclusive offerings and services (think travel exclusive sets with savings up to 15%, and on counter exclusive GWPs promotions!) surrounding four themes: Explore, Party, Relax, and Sleep. Heads up: it’s the ultimate first class in beauty with over 50 participating beauty and fragrance brands.



To get a taste of what indulging in First Class Beauty really means, I hopped down to T Galleria Singapore last week to try out their luxurious Beauty Concierge by DFS -- and I found out more about the four themes that fit right into our daily lives.

Explore


Before you take on the world, don’t forget to take care of your skin first. The “Explore” theme is chock-full of skincare tips and tricks to make sure you’ve got the right beauty regimen to gear you up for your journey ahead.



At the Beauty Concierge, I underwent a skin analysis that helped me determine my skin condition (note to self: apply more sunscreen over my T-zone) with the help of a Beauty Advisor. If you’d like to try out the services, simply make an appointment before heading down. The price you pay for every skin therapy and signature service is fully redeemable for any beauty products in-store. How awesome is that? (Ps: contact +65 6229 8107 to make an appointment!)


Party


What’s a party without a bona fide party-ready makeup look? This must-try theme is for the seasoned party hoppers, the travellers, and just about anyone looking to get their game face on.



I was given a curated selection of three looks -- Romantic Date Look, Elegant Lady Look and Enchanting Charm Look -- to try out, thanks to the express makeover service for First Class Beauty. Got your preferred makeup brand? It’s as easy as going to any available makeup counters to get a complimentary express makeover. Looking for a signature scent? Hit up the Fragrance Bar over the weekends to find new scents and exclusive offers on travel-friendly coffret sets.

While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out brands you will only see in travel retailers like T Galleria SG, such as Helena Rubinstein and Giorgio Armani. You can also find Korean brand IOPE exclusively in Singapore at T Galleria SG.


Relax


Take time to wind down and relax with a series of offerings that will not only make you feel good on the inside, but look good on the outside too. Let’s be honest, it’s a double win.



From acquainting myself with soothing mists and treatment masks, to trying out oh-so-good hand massage techniques; to indulging in a cocoa tasting experience (catch the complimentary cocoa carts making their rounds over the weekends), my body and mind was in for a total treat.


Sleep


All good things must come to an end -- but not in a bad way! Amp up on your beauty sleep using all the right beauty tools, and you’re on your way to full beauty recovery.



To help prepare my skin for rest at night, I was treated to a soothing facial massage, before learning more about simple massage techniques that work to enhance my nighttime regimen. Sweet!



Jet set life or not, be sure to make a trip down to T Galleria Singapore to get your beauty shopping on. Receive a beauty amenity kit when you spend SGD200 on beauty; plus get an additional T Galleria Singapore exclusive First Class Beauty cushion when you spend over SGD450. Amidst of it all, don’t forget to explore, party, relax and sleep.

Raise your hands if you have an extensive facial care routine! From different variants of facial foams, toners, serums to moisturisers and face masks -- these are just some of the many products women use on their face to maintain that natural looking glow and radiance. However, do you make it a point to do the same with the rest of your body?

Similar to your face, your body is also prone to getting dull, dehydrated, and dry as you age and get exposed to a lot of damaging factors like pollution, UV rays, and the constant changing of the weather. And between keeping up a busy schedule and getting enough rest, keeping up to an extensive skincare routine can be challenging.

That’s why going for a body wash that can help nourish your skin without the added effort is important. But is your current body wash doing the job?

Make sure your skin is getting the nourishment it deserves. Prevent the signs of dryness and skin damage with these easy steps!

--------------------------

Do a visual test 



Knowing your skin's sensitivity level can help you pinpoint the areas that needs addressing. Our arms and legs show signs of dryness very easily, with the elbows and knees being the driest and flakiest.

Since the skin on your elbows and knees are also thinner compared to the rest of your body, darkening around those areas are also signs of dryness and damage. Observe these areas in the morning to give you a gauge on the current status of your skin.
Do a scratch test



After doing the visual test, give your skin a slight scratch. If your nail leaves a white-looking line across the area, most likely your skin is dry and dehydrated.

Another way to test your skin for dehydration is by checking if your skin is left with creases (pillow lines for the face, blanket marks for the arms and legs, etc.) upon waking up.


Go for a body wash that nourishes your skin from within




Your skin might not be getting its much needed moisture when it feels tight and lacklustre even after a shower or a bath.  If you’re experiencing any of the points mentioned above, your current body wash is most likely not cutting the deal for you!

Plain soap and water simply cleanses the skin on the surface level. Regular body wash strip the skin’s moisture, leaving it vulnerable to dehydration, irritation and flaking.

If you prefer a fuss-free solution for your skin’s needs, go for Dove’s Beauty Nourishing Body Wash! This moisturising body wash combines NutriumMoisture™ with mild cleansers to help your skin retain its natural moisture, leaving you with plumper and smoother skin in just 7 days.

Highly recommended by dermatologists in the USA, its caring formula helps maintain your skin’s moisture barrier while delivering natural skin nourishment that goes deep into the surface layers of your skin. With a rich lather that replenishes your skin’s nutrients while also leaving it feeling cared for and clean, every bath can now be a pampering treat.

What are you waiting for? Be confident to show some skin and feel fabulous in any #OOTD. Turn heads and own the streets with your skin’s captivating radiance. Keep your skin healthy and glowing by switching to Dove!
