Kew Organics: The Wonders of Eco-beauty

Jul 03 2019 - Blog

Living The Good Life beautifully is the goal of every woman and man who wants to show their best selves with blooming confidence. And one major key to this is skincare.

Taking good care of our skin’s health is so important, especially starting from young while our skin is at its optimal condition for absorption. The worst thing we can do to our skin is allow it to absorb invasive elements hidden in the ingredients of products we use.

So if you haven’t been paying attention to skincare, it’s time you do! Trust us, you’ll thank yourself for the extra effort taken now when friends struggle to remember your real age years later.

When it comes to choosing skincare products, most people find it a hassle to study the name and effect of each ingredient. Which is why many beauty seekers turn to an easier way out — organic facial treatments. This rising trend may cost a little more than off-the-shelf products or beauty salon services, but the results are impressive and most certainly worth the hype.


Introducing Kew Organics

Speaking of the wonders of eco-beauty, local skincare brand Kew Organics scores top marks on its reputation as Singapore’s leading organic facial bar. The boutique’s founder, Lily Kew, is a passionate advocate of natural beauty and holistic skincare wellness who believes in helping her customers step out in their bare skin with confidence.

Like many of us can relate, Lily struggled with blemishes and scars for over 10 years. Constantly seeking a lasting solution to ditch make-up for good, she decided to create her own water-based organic skincare label and with that, Kew Organics was born. Lily’s dedicated line of products address common woes that Singaporeans face ⁠— clogged pores, pigmentation, acne breakouts and dehydrated skin, not to mention struggling with all these problems under Singapore’s humid and clammy weather.

 “Sometimes, skin just needs that extra oomph!”


A Welcoming Experience

The Sky Premium Team visited Kew Organics’ second concept store, conveniently located at Clarke Quay Central. As we stepped in, we were pleasantly met with a sparkling clean interior that felt like a peaceful haven. We love how they embrace simplicity in wooden elements that create a natural atmosphere for guests, who are also requested to remove their footwear.

The interior design brings attention to shelves of organic products, neatly displayed in their respective categories – cleanser, toner, serum, body scrub – just to name a few. Exclusive organic ingredients imported from Canada and Japan are kept in MIRON Violet Glass, known for its protective properties that block off harmful lights. This preserves the “healing energy” of the substance.

We prepared for the session by filling up a questionnaire to help the aestheticians evaluate our skin condition and daily maintenance routine. They then advised us on the suitable kind of products to use for our skin – i.e. gel or cream. Catering to different skin types with personalised treatments, the salon chooses specific products for each client’s needs. With their unique concept, it’s no wonder that Kew Organics has gained overwhelming response over the years!


Review: Clear Skin Hydra Deluxe Treatment

We decided to test out one of their most well-received facials: Clear Skin Hydra Deluxe Treatment. This treatment is designed to make your skin glow by unclogging pores, hydrating and renewing your skin with organic skincare products made from a selection of non-GMO fresh fruits specially customised to your skin’s needs.


Our one-hour treatment session began with a gentle face massage using a relaxing gerbera essential oil. With a warm towel, the aesthetician ensured that our face was thoroughly cleansed before proceeding to reassess our skin condition at its natural state.


A little trim to tidy up our brows. If you are going through breakouts, you can also request for pimple extraction by their professional and gentle aesthetician.


After an exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin, the remaining session was pure indulgence — from a hydronic serum to collagen gels to a cooling hydrating rose mask applied on for 20 minutes. Knowing that we’re facing oily skin, clogged pores and dehydration issues from our personal skincare products, Kew Organics’ aesthetician certainly gave our skin the moisture boost it needed.


The treatment rounded up with a routine application of organic skincare products by Kew Organics, from toner, eye serum, moisture serum, hydra sublime emulsion, down to sunblock to protect our skin from harmful UV rays as we step out of the boutique.

Tip: Applying sunscreen with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 25 to 30 is adequate for people who spend most of their time indoors. For such cases, avoid using a product with overly high SPF (e.g. SPF 50), as it increases the likelihood of clogged pores and does more harm than good to our skin.

Post-Treatment Results

Immediately after the treatment, we could see our skin looking radiant and feeling softer and smoother than before — like we’ve taken a sip from the Fountain of Youth!

Beauty parlour facials usually last a day or two, but Kew Organics’ Clear Skin Hydra Deluxe Treatment lasted for slightly more than a week! There was no itching from dryness and our skin became significantly less oily. It feels deeply hydrated and we love waking up to glowing skin.


Facials are more than just laying cucumber slices or slapping on moisturising cream; it shouldn’t be a once-in-a-while luxury session. Doing an organic treatment once every 3 to 4 weeks keeps your skin looking its best. (For those facing problematic skin, Kew Organics recommends recurring visits every week.)

Love the skin you are in and be comfortable with the mask you never take off. With Kew Organics, a glowing skin is always in.
