Singaporeans are all too familiar with this household name and its legion of beauty services at every other shopping mall, but do you know about Jean Yip Loft – the one-stop centre to have all your beauty and aesthetic needs attended to?
Stepping into the Jean Yip Loft does not feel very much different from the regular outlets in shopping malls, except that its space will wow you. The team was a warm and welcoming one who took us on a tour at the 6-storied building. With individual levels dedicated to Oriental Hair Solutions, facials, couple treatments and ladies only treatments, this full-fledged spa house offers an extensive menu at mid-range prices.
The interior of the building is that of a fuss-free but comfortable setting – dim lights, soft music, and the fragrance of essential oils. The rooms are small but intimate, and we really like the touch of purple lights that exuded a hint of romance as we settled in for a couple treatment.
We started off with an antioxidant berry sugar scrub. It not only removes dead skin cells, but also brightens and smoothens the skin. This was followed by a warm milk wrap to soothe and deeply moisturise the skin. The therapists slathered milk all over our bodies and covered us with a special cloth that aids in the penetration of the heat so as to maximise the effects of the milk bath. We ended the treatment with a relaxing scalp massage. Nothing too fanciful, but it was definitely a good midday treat for us.
And to end the day, Jean Yip Loft has a dedicated level that serves as a relaxation lounge. Sink in to the comfy seats and have some perk-me-ups like warm ginger tea and daily dessert freshly prepared daily. We really loved how a little treat like this really makes a whole lot of difference to the experience.
Be it facial hair solution, massage, foot and nail spa, Jean Yip Loft has it all covered. Why not give your partner and yourself a treat this weekend?

I had the worst experience at Jean Yip. Was terrorized by several staff members there to purchase their IPL package before they allowed me to walk away (was there because I bought a Groupon coupon from them). I somehow caved after 3 hours (they didn’t let me leave the room, as soon as I did, another staff would try to sell it to me again). I did the IPL sessions, and to my horror, developed a rash. They said it was alright, and continued lasering my armpits. The result? A BURNT ARMPIT. It is dull and black now. I had to see doctors to help salvage my ugly underarms. This made me realize that the beauticians there are not qualified to use those types of equipment. I don’t know what training they have been through, but they definitely need retraining. There were several other bad incidences with them, one included their very own manager yelling at me and being really cocky, saying “I am the big boss here” when I asked to see someone who could actually help me out with the rash (since she was shrugging responsibilities). I’m taken aback by those countless situations… And I truly hope no one would have to pay $2k odd and receive such horrible treatment with people who don’t know what they are doing at all! It sickens me to see other customers following into their trap. Hope this review helps. Don’t simply sign up for sessions at beauty salons just because they are fairly well-known. I know I’ve learned my lesson and will never patronize them again.
