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).

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

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.

philosophy's Hope in a Jar Night & Sweet Holiday Collection

philosophy: To dream in hope is to wake to limitless possibility

I first got to know philosophy through one of the beauty boxes I've gotten previously and immediately fell in love with its simplicity of the brand.
Few weeks back, there was a chance to attend philosophy's Hope in a Jar launch event at Wanderlust Hotel.

There, in a gorgeous and comfortable room, we learnt how beauty sleep has been redefined by philosophy.

Live in hope & dream in hope :)

Hope in a jar night features remarkable qusome 
technology for quick and intense retexturizing, 
while improving uneven skin tone.

- boosts nighttime renewal to retexturize 
skin as it plumps the appearance of fine 
lines and evens skin tone

- patented qusomes help deliver potent 
glycolic acid deep into skin's surface

- formulated with gradual release 
technology to minimize the potential 
for irritation

- calming agents ensure your skin 
rejuvenates in peaceful slumber

- silky texture provides lightweight 
hydration that absorbs quickly


It had been about a week since I started using the night moisturiser.
The cream smells slightly of aromatic oil - think lavendar :) Texture is much thicker than normal day moisturiser as it targets to maximise the hydration effects throughout the night when we are not active. 
And while using the cream, I kept reminding myself the importance of beauty sleep to go along in order to have good skin, keke. 
True enough, philosophy Hope in a Jar Night delivered what it promised!
My skin feels very much more hydrated and generally more plumped-up and healthier looking. Also, the fine lines especially nearing the laugh lines were softened a little. 
I feel that my makeup could go on my face much more easily too which is the most important thing to working ladies I believe ;)

philosophy Hope in a Jar Night (60ml) retails for $64 at all Sephora stores, Bugis Junction #01-16 & TANGS Orchard Level 1


During the event we were taught to live in hope - being pampered with nice macarons and chocolates! <3
And had the chance to DIY our own dream-catchers to drive away all our nightmares!

(my not-very-creative dream-catcher)

Then, we learnt to dream in hope.

The bloggers enjoying the luxurious bed and all ready to sleep!

Goodnight all! 


Oh wait a min, before you sleep, check out the sweet holiday season products which are PERFECT for the coming christmas as presents!

Shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath in yummy flavours like Sweet Fluffy Cupcake, Shortbread Cookie, Homemade Honey Bun,  Raspberry Glazed and many more!
Doesn't the name only makes you tempted to try them out?
Tell you what, they all smell really delicious!
On top of the lovely scent, the rich, foaming lather gently cleanses and conditions, leaving skin and hair feeling ultra soft :)

One of the best gift you can give this season is philosophy skin care. The care package features the bestselling skin care for all skin types, designed to help you achieve radiantly clear, beautifully bright and impeccably smooth skin. This set includes the microdelivery exfoliating facial wash, purity made simple 3-in-1 cleanser for face and eyes, hope in a jar high-performance moisturizer for all skin types, hands of hope hand and cuticle cream and the microdelivery in-home vitamin c/peptide peel.

Here's an idea on how you can decorate your christmas tree area this year-end! :)

Smacked right in the middle of it is The Cookie Exchange set.
The sweet creamy frosting lotion, christmas cookie shower gel and sugar sprinkles lipshine.
The sweet creamy frosting body lotion melts onto skin to moisturize and leave it feeling silky soft. the formula contains macadamia seed and olive fruit oils, shea butter and antioxidants to help hydrate, soothe and soften skin. the lightweight formula absorbs quickly without feeling greasy, while the decadent scent of sweet
creamy frosting lightly scents skin. it’s the icing on the cake (or cookie in this case) for your skin and your senses after the shower or bath.

Here are the lipshine in eggnog, fresh cream, cherry pinwheel cookie, raspberry glazed flavours. The lipshine is high-gloss, high-flavor that hydrates, smoothes and softens lips, while adding flavor and gloss.

Besides philosophy products, here are some photos with few of my favourite beauty/fashion bloggers as well! ;)
