Chez Vous - Beauty Is Real!

As a leader in Singapore’s beauty salon industry, Chez Vous boldly stands firm on the social media stage against all things digital when it comes to beauty. Stemming from the standards set in the mainstream where most women are photo shopped or digitally enhanced to perfection, the forward-thinking salon raises an internet meme or two, giving a shout out to all women to discover their natural beauty and celebrate #chezvousbeautyisreal. The aim of its latest campaign, #chezvousbeautyisreal, is to liberate women from those unrealistic beauty standards and prove that beauty is attainable, tangible and empowering (#therealme).

In an unprecedented move, on the 7th June 2015, Chez Vous offers every woman, regardless of age and race, the opportunity to experience a full makeover session when they visit Chez Vous @ Ngee Ann City. Every customer is guaranteed no photoshopping and no digital enhancements, just pure pampering bliss. This will be a journey of positive transformation that is real and will hopefully change how women perceive true beauty. While there are no restrictions on the number of people entering the salon, the sessions will be subject to the availability of beauty consultants.

Complete makeover in summary:
Tips and tricks by a fully qualified beauty consultant
Hair wash, blow-dry and styling
Professional make up
Professional photography (may be used for Facebook posts and other social media opportunities)

*Sessions are subject to availability of beauty consultants)
*NOT inclusive of haircut; or chemical services; or treatments

Address: 391 Orchard Road, Ngee Ann City Podium, 05-05, Singapore 238872

Chez Vous: shā vu\adj Your Place. In French, ‘vis’ akin to Your House

When Chez Vous opened 20 years ago, its founders Thomas Teo and Riz Tan were committed to providing hair services at the highest standards, garnering a loyal following and putting them among the most sought after stylists in Singapore. Today, it is a 2,000 sq ft beauty powerhouse located in the heart of Orchard Road, offering a cutting edge range of signature treatments in an unpretentious yet sophisticated designer interior layout. With a one-of-a-kind “OHDA” (i.e. Only Hair Directors Allowed) policy in place, the salon ensures an unparalleled roster of beauty experts so that clients receive only the best service and advice in creating their individual style. OHDA means their beauty experts are Associate Salon Directors, Directors & Chief Directors only with minimum 10 years of experience, and many were previously salon owners themselves, or academy trainers, leading stylists and salon managers. Not only catered to the local scene, it also houses a Caucasian Specialist Team which has been reviewed and verified by Expat Living and Sassy Singapore editors.

Chez Vous’s vision has remained steadfast since its inception: to inspire possibilities, as well as provide 100% reliability and expertise through their accomplished hair maestros, to produce every customer’s true personality and glamour – in other words, keeping it all real. Because today’s digitised world now highlights beauty standards that most of the time are unrealistic – from body shapes to ageless faces and an infinite number of hair trends – Chez Vous, now more than ever, makes it a point to ensure that their approach is holistic, practical, real and always a pampering experience for its customers.

Chez Vous initiated the Expertligent Fix You Programme which sounds like savior for all beauty addicts who often experiment with new products or technologies, and more often than not, damage our own hair/skin/body :( Chez Vous’ team of directors-only hair professionals will receive any customers who have had unsatisfactory treatments or cuts at other salons and redress any damage done. Armed with a team of experts in various disciplines, Chez Vous is more than well equipped to fix and repair sub-optimal results of hair services such as colouring, cutting, straightening, perming, bleaching etc. This program is an ongoing initiative, and free of charge if there is a lapse of less than one week between the treatment in question and the customer’s visit to Chez Vous; this is limited to 1 customer a day and only from Sundays to Thursdays.

Not just that, Chez Vous other unique initiatives will also include cheeky by-appointment only makeover parties coined “Mix, Mingle, Makeover” as well as our #ThursdayisthenewFriday programme once a month where there will be a surprise treat for all guests e.g. macaroon and wine butler service, waive of bills etc., ongoing campaigns and efforts to support emerging designers. As a show of their support, Chez Vous’ shopfront will regularly be transformed by Singapore’s design personalities on the rise.

The Truth About Beauty

Today, you are faced with countless images of beauty that are often digitally enhanced or are altogether unattainable. Models and celebrities present images of perfection in glossy magazines but the fact is, when you take away their make-up and fancy hair styles, those same people actually look “ordinary”…normal…just like you! We want to liberate you from trying to live up to the unrealistic standards, it’s time to start believing in #therealme.

Discovering your beauty is a journey of positive transformation. You may wake up not feeling your best or simply…plain. Let’s face it, looking good recharges you and makes you feel confident. And discovering your own fabulous look is truly a real experience.

All we’re saying is that we understand your predicament. No woman should feel pressured about being beautiful or looking like that supermodel in the glossy magazine. You know those flaws that keep making you feel down? We can help you learn to love them and to realise your full beauty potential. This is what positive transformation is all about.

The truth about beauty is…it is actually attainable and very much within your reach. You don’t need a photoshopping session to find #therealme. Sure, there are days when we feel like nothing we do will make us look as beautiful as that flawless face in the magazine. But we can help you find your amazing look and guess what? It’s a real experience!

At the end of the day, every woman wants to look beautiful because looking good makes her feel confident and empowered. You don’t have to be a supermodel or top actress to look amazing – remember, without their fancy makeover, they look just like any normal woman. At Chez Vous, beauty is real and we take you through a journey of positive transformation to help you discover your beauty…#therealme. We guarantee no photoshopping and no digital enhancements. It’s time to discover The Real You.

Start shopping Sephora online at ZALORA today :)

It’s the beginning of the Great Singapore Sales this month and I’m so excited over it!
Time to get that fashion tote/clutch/dress/shoes/jeans/necklace which we’ve all been eyeing at discounted prices! :D More importantly, it’s a great chance to stock up on those necessities! Haircare, skincare, makeup and etc which you’ve been loyally using for the past year(s). Oh yes!

Q and I went to Sephora store to check out makeup and skincare.
Registered for a new loyalty card and got a freebie! Yay ^^

Sephora is not only a store that sells beauty products, it is a brand name itself that has a vast range of high-quality skincare, make-up, and other products. These exclusive products can only be found in Sephora stores!

Been a fan of Sephora since school days in Maastricht (The Netherlands) where there was a Sephora store just a few minutes WALK from our apartment! How convenient! I remember from Sephora, I can get supplies of makeup and skincare which were more suitable for our skins in the climate there. Not only that, if you do not intend to buy anything, it’s a wonderful place to just hang around, checking out countless new products and their delightful packaging.

Imagine my happiness when I got to know that we can now buy Sephora online at ZALORA. It's so convenient! What's more, with an established shopping site like ZALORA, many of us should be very used to the interface and need not waste any precious time learning to navigate around.

Now that ZALORA is the exclusive online purveyor of Sephora in Singapore, start shopping Sephora online

Not only can we shop Sephora at the comfort of our home, we can easily browse through products or search for an particular item in a shorter time than in the physical store.
ZALORA website has the 'SORT' function whereby you can sort the Sephora products by New Arrivals, Lowest Price, Most Popular and etc.

Learning of new products now is a breeze!
Simply sort by latest arrivals~

One of my favourite beauty masks from Sephora is also available online!

If you have a budget to work on, you can easily use the filter function to filter for products within a certain price range. Saves effort of sieving through things that are so tempting yet exceeding your shopping budget for the month :p

In addition, since we're in the GSS mood, you can sort the Sephora products to get the most discounted items in a minute second!
Sephora eyeshadows and nail polishes at 25% off!

On top of Sephora promotions, you will get additional discounts from ZALORA itself using credit cards or vouchers.
Sometimes, discounts would even simply fall onto your lap when you visit the site - like this pop-up $10 savings :D
(Yeah, who doesn't wanna save money right??)

So what are you waiting for?

THEFACESHOP - Natural Sun Eco

Flash the promotion badge below at any THEFACESHOP outlets to get a 15% off Natural Sun Eco products plus an additional 10% off all purchases.

Attended THEFACESHOP Natural Sun Eco bloggers party the other evening!
Enjoyed ourselves a lot at such a lovely, sunshine-filled party!

The party was held at Backstage cafe, read HERE for my review of Backstage cafe :)


We were welcomed by a vibrant, summer setup once inside the cafe.

The backstage crew specially prepared some canapes for us while we were waiting for the introduction/demostration to begin.

Demonstration of THEFACESHOP Natural Sun Eco product and best seller SMIM Fermented Concentrate Total Treatment.
The SMIM Fermented Concentrate Total Treatment is one of THEFACESHOP best sellers, enabling one to achieve brighter and younger looking skin! This essence improves skin texture and boosts absorption speed of further moisturizing products, hence called - the Miracle of Youth!

Natural Sun Eco Smart cushion:

So gorgeous!

Products galore again! :D

One of the items I was interested in was the Smart Hardiness.
THEFACESHOP Natural Sun AQ Smart Handiness SPF50+ PA+++ (30ml) $39.90

It has an unique shaped puff for fun application as well as using the product without your fingers touching the products.
Simply use the diagonal puff to fit your face and lightly pat on to apply.

Natural Sun Eco Power Long-Lasting Sun Cream (SPF45 PA+++)

The star product of THEFACESHOP suncare line, this sun cream gives a long-lasting UV protection while giving the skin a healthy and natural look! A premium sun cream without stickiness, it protects the skin from long exposure from sun rays and acts as a make-up base as well!

This amount is wayyyyyyy enough for the entire face and neck, I'm just applying more in this pic to show the product :p

The sun cream spreads evenly over skin without caking even though I applied so much just on one hand.
The end result? Medium coverage with a much coveted dewy glow :)

Natural Sun Eco Smart Cushion SPF50+ PA+++

Natural Sun Eco Smart cushion is the MUST HAVE sunscreen for this vacation when fighting against the sun!

The puff is unlike sponge applicators, the holes on the puff are smaller and surface feels smoother to skin - helping to spread the sunscreen more evenly on the face.

The cushion is spill-proof, and hence there would not be any mess or spillage even if the compact is held upside down.

This is one cushion providing UV protection, cooling and make up effects all in one!
I like how it is tinted enough for coverage and doesn't make my skin patchy "white" like normal sunscreen.


Now the exciting part!
