Sheer indulgence at The World of Organic

 Sheer indulgence at The World of Organic

I have heard so much about the goodness of manuka honey but I have never tried it on my face until last Friday, when I had the opportunity to be pampered with a unique facial involving manuka honey face mask at The World Of Organic Skincare. And the interesting experience has left me yearning for more manuka honey now! I swear I could almost taste the sweet honey in my mouth when the therapist was massaging it on my face using the rose quartz crystal wands!

Face, body, hand and foot spa services
The manuka honey used at the spa was from Living Nature, a brand of natural skincare products made without synthetic ingredients in New Zealand. The World Of Organic Skincare has been distributing Living Nature in Singapore and recently began offering face, body, hand and foot spa services at its River Valley outlet. Lawrence Chee, the PR & Marketing Director had invited me to try out their service, promising me a wonderful and luxurious experience.

Rose quartz crystal wands to massage the manuka honey
The facial was free of steaming and extraction. The only special tool which was used was the rose quartz crystal wands that you see in the picture above, which was heated up to massage the warm manuka honey into my skin. The heat wasn’t excessive; just warm enough to ensure that the honey was manageable to be massaged as honey can get really sticky when it’s cool.

Acne marks lightened
Apart from the manuka honey mask, two different treatments were used on my face – a clay peel and a hydrating mask – both from Living Nature. I was told that the clay peel which contains Kaolin would lighten up my pigmentation marks and my skin would be instantly radiant. Well, I didn’t really find the marks lightened, but it was true that my face had an instant glow right after the facial. In addition, I noticed that two of my acne marks were lightened slightly a day after the facial. I’m not sure if it was the effect of the clay peel mask or the manuka honey. Well, perhaps both!

Manuka honey left skin feel soft and supple
But I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the manuka honey mask and my skin felt exceptionally soft afterwards! I thought about trying it out at home but I imagine it would be quite messy. Plus, I don’t have the rose quartz wand and even if I had, it would be difficult to massage on my own and I don’t know how to do the lymphatic massage either!

Facial customized according to customers’ needs
The World Of Organic Skincare customizes their facials according to different skin types. The only constant is the manuka honey mask because it is very gentle and suitable for all skin types. In addition, all their products and ingredients are fresh because the products are pumped out on the spot at the cocktail bar according to customers’ needs and nothing is pre-prepared.   The spa is not big but it’s cozy enough.  I find their menu prices rather reasonable and I like the fact that their natural and organic products are also within affordable range.   My only complain was the location, because it wasn’t near a train station for those who do not drive.

Organic waxing available
Besides products from Living Nature, the company has another series of facial spa services using products from Organic Apoteke. They also offer nail treatments that are free of acetone formaldehyde and toluene. And something else that was interesting caught my eye – organic bikini and brazilian waxing !

  1. I’ve been using honey as part of my regimen^^

    I still have yet gone for the TrueBeauty facial, appt always fully booked >.<

  2. I tried to put manuka honey on my face as a mask before.

    The dark bits went into my pores, then I look like I have a face of black heads. :(

  3. Fully redeemed for the 3 facial :(

  4. How luxurious! I used to put honey on my face but not manuka – its so pricey I reserve it to be eaten/drunk :) I’ll see if I can try this out if I go down to SG this month ;)

    • sesame says:

      I agree that it’s expensive! That’s why I’ve never tried it. Hey, if you want to book an appointment, let me know via email and I can arrange for you.

  5. Living Nature is also sold at Sephora.

  6. oooo they contacted me too. i shd go down soon. :D i’ve been eating a spoon of manuka honey every night at my friend’s advice. she has great skin, i hope it makes my skin nice too. :D

  7. I would love to try this. Looks very relazing and soothing! Too bad I’m not in Singapore. I’m glad to hear you had good results Sesame!

  8. Is there plenty of parking (non-parallel ones) available?

    • sesame says:

      There are parking spaces in front of the shop. Can’t remember if they’re non-parellel ones though. Maybe you can verify if you call them for an appointment.

  9. Lawrence says:

    I’m from “The World of Organic Skincare”. Sorry, the 3 free Sheer Indulgence Facial has been redeemed but you can still try it for 50% off at $69 (UP $138).. it’s really a very good deal for you to try.

    For parking, it is parellel in front of shop and head in at the back of shop. For those who dun drive, I can pick you up from nearest MRT :)

    I was looking for manuka honey ages ago, but they don’t allow it here in australia though :( so i just use normal honey! i wash my long hair in a small amount of honey & warm water to make it shine.

    • sesame says:

      Oh they don’t allow manuka honey to be retailed in Australia? That’s quite strange.

  11. It has something to do with strict quarantine laws because manuka honey has live bacteria inside it so we cant purchase it in perth

  12. Jean Balaam says:

    The manuka honey referred to in this wonderful facial treatment, is not just plan manuka honey you buy – but one of the key ingredients in a unique formulation that helps to rejuvenate the skin. It is amazing – try it.

    Manuka honey is available to buy in Australia in health food stores.

  13. Teasha says:

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I am interested in knowing where to purchase the Manuka Honey and the Organic Pleasures line?
