01 – Sabon started as a small soap shop back in 1997. Since then, it has expanded its offerings worldwide to include products across bath and body, face, fragrance and hair categories.
The brand is all about bringing the healing and relaxing powers of nature to homes. It does so through sensorial treats that are enriched with botanicals and natural ingredients from the Mediterranean and beyond.
02 – Not sure where to start? Sabon’s three-step body care ritual is a great way to get to know the brand. Here’s how to transform your simple daily shower routine into a delight.
It starts with the shower oil (from SGD9 for 50 ml) to cleanse while hydrating skin. Every pump infuses a blend of oils, antioxidants and vitamins. Next, the cult-favourite body scrub (from SGD16 for a 60 g) for a gentle exfoliation. It boasts a unique cocktail of Dead Sea salts, minerals and botanical oils. Finally, moisturise with a body lotion (from SGD19 for 50 ml) of your choice for soft and smooth skin.
Each product comes in a selection of uplifting scents. Green Rose, Jasmine and Patchouli Lavender Vanilla are crowd favourites. You can mix and match the fragrances for a customised routine. Or opt for all of them in the same scent to prolong the experience.
03 – The brand also offers skincare that turns any routine into a self-care ritual. For instand, the Dead Sea Mud Mask (SGD93 for 125 ml). Simply leave the rinse-off mask on for five to 10 minutes and take a few mindful moments for yourself. The vegan formula purifies and detoxifies for clean, glowy skin that doesn’t feel tight after.
04 – Another must-try treat? The Mint 2-in-1 Face Polisher (SGD76 for 200 ml) that’s a favourite of K-pop star Somi.
The energising scrub doubles as a facial cleanser, and is great for reviving tired skin. Depending on your skin’s needs, you can use this daily or as and when you need a pick-me-up.
05 – Ready to make your bath and skincare ritual feel like an act of respite? Sabon is available at level one of Takashimaya Department Store. Its counter features a convenient circular sink, so you can try products before you buy them. Or if you prefer to shop from the comfort of home, you can always cart out online. Its e-store offers free shipping on orders over SGD100. #happyshopping
