~ When I learnt that Bud Cosmetics started offering facial services using organic products at their new store in Mandarin Gallery recently, I was eager to feature their new service. So I arranged for Hazel of Hazelnutt House to have a complimentary session and to review it for Viva Woman. Following is her account. Update: Get $20 off any facial treatment booked for the month of May; just state you’re a reader of Viva Woman when you make your appointment. ~

It’s a lovely place – the first spa in Singapore actually – and even now, I still can remember the scent of their tea. Anyway, I was contacted recently to test out their organic facial but I decided to ask Jyoan of Positively Nice to try instead. So the following is her review of her experience at Renewal Day Spa.
