After a long week at work, there’s nothing better to do on a weekend than some self-pampering. Of course, you don’t have to bust your bank account just for an hour of me-time. Here are eight treatments that allow you to revitalise your senses for less than $200.
Face: For when you don’t have the time or moolah to book an appointment, treat yourself at home with Korean beauty brand Innisfree’s Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask ($21). It can minimise pores, control sebum, exfoliate, cleanse, brighten and cool skin.
Body: This hole-in-the-wall may look a little dodgy but the masseuses at Flex Foot Reflexology Centre know what they’re doing. For just $13, you can enjoy a 30-minute foot reflexology treatment right in the heart of Orchard.

Face: Well-groomed brows can make your face. And the Browgraphy (Thread + Tweeze) treatment ($45) at Browhaus is worth the effort. While you’re at it, go on and tweak the colour of your brows to match your hair. It’s included in the price!
Body: Try a Traditional Javanese Full Body Massage ($45, members; $60, nonmembers) for a legit Indonesian experience in Singapore. Hit up one of the many House of Traditional Javanese Massage & Beauty Care branches islandwide.
Face: SG Face uses high-quality BABOR products from Germany for its Deep Cleansing Facial ($68), which aims to remove dirt, oil and makeup, and leave no residue.
