Just for you

Since 1992, cult luxury Australian brand, RATIONALE, has been combining beauty, science and medicine to build and restore skin health, strength and vitality.

And while it used to be exclusively available at dermatologists, plastic surgeons and aesthetic doctors’ offices for over 20 years, the brand is now available in 14 flagship stores in Australia, in addition to various medical stockists around Australia and the UK.

In fact, Singapore is the first international outpost for RATIONALE, with not one but two flagship boutiques here on our sunny shores.

What You Can Expect

With its motto “Luminous Skin for Life”, at the heart of RATIONALE lies its Essential Six Collections boasting superlative formulations that offer unparalleled skin protection and repair to bring your skin back to its optimal state of health and beauty.

And unlike other brands where each range might focus on a specific skin concern, each Essential Six Collection range has been crafted around the six facets of healthy, luminous skin – resilience, vitality, brilliance, integrity, clarity and renewal, allowing the products to be mixed and matched according to your skin’s unique needs and concerns.

To complement its skincare, RATIONALE also offers a suite of facial treatments to transform the skin, ranging from purely hands-on sessions to the use of state-of-the-art machines. The result: A rejuvenated complexion that glows with health.

Our Testers Say…

It’s easy to see why the Her World panel of testers loved their treatments at RATIONALE. In fact, this new-to-Singapore skincare brand has also been awarded for two more wins for its Integrity Restorative Facial (Best Facial For Sensitive Skin) and LuminousLift Renewal Facial (Best All-in-One Facial – Machine-Based).

The Integrity Restorative Facial

Best For Tired and sensitised skin

What It Is An exclusively hands-on treatment, it incorporates lymphatic massages to soothe, nourish and strengthen the skin, bringing it back to a healthy state once more. Skin is revitalised, radiant and resilient, to better protect itself against external environmental stressors.

“The whole treatment was so relaxing, and along with the soft and soothing music being played in the room, it was really difficult not to doze off.

It began with an opening ritual to relax the body, followed by a cleansing massage that focused not only my face, but also my neck too. After cleansing, the therapist did a quick skin analysis and highlighted that my T-zone was congested and some areas were sensitive. To help clear the clogged pores, an infusion balm was used to gently exfoliate – no extraction involved. Phew!

Next was the highlight of the treatment as she applied an anti-ageing ampoule to my face, neck and decolletage. Then it was a rich infusion oil for an uber pampering facial massage, followed by a mask application. While the mask was doing its job, I enjoyed a hand and arm massage.

The entire treatment was extremely pampering, from the many massages given to the products used – nourishing yet didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I loved every minute of it. The results were great too. My skin was hydrated and looked fresher and brighter.”

The LuminousLift Renewal Facial

Best For All-round anti-ageing

What It Is A rejuvenating treatment that lifts, firms and sculpts the facial features for a youthful-looking you. It uses a range of remodelling modalities, including ultrasound to reset skin’s muscle memory and reveal a more defined and radiant profile that will be the envy of your friends.

“The treatment room was clean and very spacious with enclosed interior storage that hid the equipment and products behind the cabinets. The bed was very lush and with the music and soft lighting in the background, I was ready for a nap.

After a quick skin analysis – no machines used, the session began with the standard double cleansing before getting to the heart of the treatment. The device was applied to my face and followed my facial contours with a warm sensation. It felt like a mini ironing session. Fortunately, there was no discomfort and I found the overall sensation surprisingly soothing – and I have a low pain threshold.

It definitely delivered on the visible sculpting element, and I noticed there was an uplift and firmness particularly around my cheeks. I also appreciated the therapist’s meticulous attention to detail – she spent more time on the left side of my face to even out the facial muscle tone.”

An instant glow up in just 30 minutes, The Absolute Brilliance Boost is a great pick-me-up to address dull and tired skin. Designed as an add-on to any existing RATIONALE facial treatment, an infusion of vitamin D with energising light therapy boost skin’s vitality. Also includes a pampering arm, neck and decolletage massage.
