10. SK-II - 3

October 14, 2015

You might want to get to the airport a bit earlier before your next flight out – The Shilla Duty Free has just added a badass second level to its cosmetics and perfume store at the Terminal 3 transit area. The Shilla Beauty Loft is a wonderland of luxurious beauty products and spa services, making up the first duty free store in the world with this concept.

The brands you’ll find there are some of the most prestigious in the beauty world, so a session at any of them will give you some ultimate pampering time before or after your flight.

Dior Beauty House

3. Dior - 1

It’s basically the first Dior Beauty House in an airport – you get to do a skin analysis, express facial, hand massage or flash makeover (there’s a full-fledged beauty counter inspired by the actual makeup stations backstage of the Dior Couture runway shows).

It’s also the only place in Singapore you can get your hands on the Dior La Collection Privée, Dior’s most luxurious fragrance range that includes 12 very exclusive scents for both men and women. Trained Fragrance Specialists will be on hand to do a signature fragrance collection, to customise a scent that’s very much your own.

Available services

Fragrance consultation: 10-30 mins
Flash makeup services: 15 mins
Dior Beauty Secrets facial service: 15 mins
Hand massage: 15 mins
Skin and makeup consultation: 15 mins

No appointment required; walk-in customers are welcome.



8. SK-II - 1

Of course, Pitera features heavily in the facial treatments available here. For the facial services, the brand’s specially trained therapists will use specific massage techniques to allow as much Pitera as possible to penetrate the skin. There’s good variety in the type of services offered; if you’ve got a flight to catch soon, there are quick 15-minute skincare boosts. If you’ve got an hour to spare, go for the more indulgent treatments.

Call +65 9352 3687 or email reservations_changispa@skii.com.sg for more information on the available services.

Prior booking recommended; availability for walk-ins not guaranteed.


Luxury Skincare Bar by La Prairie

6. La Prairie - 2

There’s an actual bar here; it serves up light complimentary refreshments as you lounge on the sofa there waiting for your appointment. A selection of skincare rituals from the La Prairie Art of Perfection selection to give you the skin perk-me-up you need before your travels – only the brand’s top-notch signature products will be used in their facials. Request for something off the facial menu if you like, such as a customised facial that meets your specific skincare needs. Tailored makeovers are also available here.

Available services

Platinum Forever facial treatment: 5-20 mins
Legendary Caviar facial treatment: 5-20 mins
White Magic facial treatment: 5-20 mins
Glow With Gold facial treatment: 5-20 mins
Personalised skincare ritual: 5-20 mins

Travel With CHANEL

This lounge is so exclusive, even the press aren’t privy to the exact details yet. All we know is that this will be strictly by-invitation-only, and the space is completely private. There’ll be a concierge to host you, and you get to choose from a selection of skincare, makeup and fragrance services.
