I Dare You to Go For Facial
With the recent case about beauty blogger Juli Phang (aka Bunbun) getting infection after receiving treatment from some facial salon, many people have lost trust in facial salon. My mum brought the newspaper to my face (literally) and screeched, “See, that’s what you get after going for all those facial reviews and doing those beauty product reviews! Don’t you dare go do such stuff any more!”
But… I still did.
I won’t say I’m not worried by the incident at all, it’s my FACE after all! But I really need to get all the BIG pusty, disgusting pimples out as they are spreading to my whole cheek!
So here’s a little introduction post on my new skin care consultant (guardian angel!) and about how I got to know about her before I start showing (off) my recovering face in my subsequent post! Pssst… The founder of the beauty salon is a gorgeous Celebrity Beauty Consultant!
Introducing Sylvia Skin Atelier…
Atelier is the French word for “workshop”, so Sylvia Skin Atelier basically means Sylvia’s Skin Workshop (named after the founder: Sylvia Yeo). The mystical unicorn is possibly the most symbolic representation of ancient Greek mythology. The horn is believed to have the powers of healing and detoxification. Synonymous with strength, grace, and purity, the majestic unicorn encapsulates beauty and purity at their finest. It is with these endearing and timeless attributes that gave birth to Sylvia Skin Atelier.
Getting to Sylvia Skin Atelier…
So Sylvia Skin Atelier is located along 131 East Coast Road, diagonally opposite I12 Katong Shopping Mall, on the 4th floor of the building where Awfully Chocolate is!
Who’s Sylvia Yeo
Yes, so the lady is the founder of Sylvia Skin Atelier, Sylvia Yeo (with a pimply me. It’s unedited, so you still see those marks beneath the thick makeup!). If you find her familiar, she was a Celebrity Beauty Consultant for various Mediacorp show (“Watsons Beauty Unveiled II” as well as “ by Mediacorp Channel 8), modelled for Dr. Brandt Skincare. and co-founded a new, self-made facial mask formula in conjunction with Hada Labo. She was also a feature writer for Seventeen magazine!
Besides that, Sylvia previously does home-based facial (So she’s definitely NOT new in the beauty/facial industry) where customers go to her house for facials.
After knowing her credentials, I felt safer as I will be in good hands. I went through a basic consultation with Ms Sylvia and she was generously sharing with me many of her beauty dos and don’ts! I’m not claiming that I don’t know any of the tips, after-all, being in a bad skin condition for so long, I had really read up, researched and sought for many help before I finally came to her. But there were still a few things I didn’t know (about my skin) when I had consultation with her!
So Sylvia came across my “very brave” entry on the TCM treatment where I showed my bare (pimply) face, and decided that she should “save” me! (haha, I really NEED saving) I really think it is very courageous of her to take up the challenge, as she can easily get a pretty beauty blogger to endorse and review her services (Just like how slimming product companies get skinny actresses to be their ambassadors).
So when I asked her why me, she said (here comes the sentence that made me go “I got the right company/person!” *drumroll*) “What’s the use of getting a near perfect person to try my service? There will be no impact. And in fact, even before-after photos can be edited nowadays! I hope I can help you get your good skin back so that you can show people it works!”
P.S. I was seriously touched by her statement. Finally, someone who didn’t approach me and ask me what’s my blog stats but saw the potential in
me my skin!
Besides that, I like how Sylvia actually tries out all her products before allowing her customers to use, and yes, she told me she get breakouts too (though close-up her skin is sooooo NICE la- at least now I know she’s also human :P).
I’ve currently had three 3 facials done with them now, and will be sharing my experience and of course, the long-awaited pimply (albeit recovering) unedited, raw face photos soon!

P.S For those who had read about my previous TCM post (on trying to get my hormonal acne problem solved). It works, but at a slower pace. And the existing pimples and scars are can’t be removed via TCM! So I really need to speed up the recovery and get my skin healing before more stubborn scars start staying on my skin! 🙁
