Last week I was invited to Kéring Skin for a customised facial treatment. It is conveniently located in Orchard International Building, next to Shaw Orchard. Recognise the cute TCC outlet? Yup it’s that building behind!
Kéring Skin is a play on the word ‘Caring’, and the people there are serious in providing quality service coupled with a genuine intention of helping customers improve and maintain optimal skin conditions- the best that your skin can achieve.
They have specially brought in Nobel Prize-Winning Laboratoire Dr Renaud’s line of products from Canada. Laboratoire Dr Renaud not only centres its values on promising the best of science and nature’s best ingredients, the award-winning brand is also proud of its commitments to the consumer in the following ways:
- Refusal to use several ingredients such as parabens, synthetic perfumes and colorants, mineral oil, alcohol, formaldehyde
- Reduced concentrations of preservatives
- Strict selection of ingredients
- Products not tested on animals
- Results tested by clinical studies conducted under dermatological supervision and by independent laboratories
My treatment starts…
Kéring Skin believes that everybody’s skin condition is different, and it is important to address the individual skin’s needs instead of just performing a general facial treatment.

Here’s my skin map. The upper photo is under normal light, and the bottom one is under UV light. Hahah I got a shock when I saw my face under UV light. Like a bloated ghost! But the use of viewing your skin under UV light is more than just attempting to scare yourself; it actually reveals the hyperpigmentation spots that are underneath your skin, those are the ones that will appear in a few year’s time if you do not address your skin’s needs promptly. And yes, I found out that I have several of them. :( Boohoo.
After analysing my skin condition, Kelly, my aesthetician, prescribed a combination of Dr Renaud’s HydraScience AHD3 Multi-Hydrating and Rosa-C3 Anti-redness and Soothing treatment sets. By now you should have figured out my major skin concerns: EXTREME DEHYDRATION AND SENSITIVITY leading to redness around my nose and forehead!
I love how Kéring Skin allocates a whole complete Dr Renaud treatment set to each individual customer, so you can be sure that you’re not actually sharing with someone else nor using left-overs!
The whole treatment took about 1 hour and 15 minutes with the following steps (I tried my best to record down, haha but I think I might have missed some steps).
2) Rosa-C3 Treatment coupled with Cold Steaming: Bubbling sensation on the skin to kill bacteria and prepare skin.
3) Hydro massage: Soothing facial massage to relax skin and open pores.
4) Light Extraction: Tolerable pain level of 2/5.
5) Application of 3 layers of Hydragel: Addresses the concerns of each skin layer.
6) Relaxing head, neck and body massage: I was really impressed with this feature because instead of just a customary 5 minute facial lymphatic drainage massage, it was a very comfortable 15-20 minutes of head, neck and body massage!
Can’t really tell my skin’s complexion from this photo, but it felt extremely soft and cool to the touch! Thanks to the HydraScience AHD3 Multi-Hydrating treatment. And Kelly’s exclamation of “Your skin is renewed!” made me feel so happy and relieved that my skin’s rescued from all that late nights and not masking for several weeks. Yikes! Kelly pointed out that my skin is sensitive around my nose area, and true enough, it was very easily reddened and irritated. The Rosa-C3 treatment targeted that concern.
Do you know that to keep your skin hydrated, masking is absolutely necessary? Drinking water does not hydrate your skin! <—- Confirmed by a dermatologist.
With Ms Subrina Liew, the Founder and Relationship Manager of Kéring Skin. We really hit off when she shared with me the vision and culture of Kéring Skin, in which they don’t believe in hard-selling and forcing customers to buy packages. Aren’t we all terrified of that – where they trap you in a tiny room and not let you leave until you bought a package?!
Well, at Kéring Skin, they strongly believe in providing a “consultative approach rather than depending on hard-selling tactics.” They do not want to be those beauty salons that eventually become notorious because customers do not feel comfortable returning at all.
This attitude I think, is very admirable. And it is THE WAY to do business. Why conform to the norms of cutthroat spa business tactics when you can do it your own way? I believe under the lead of Ms Subrina Liew, Kéring Skin has a bright future!
