Elevatione Time Stops: Gourmet Food for the Skin
With an exquisite and extravagant showroom tucked away in one of the most luxurious shopping destination of Singapore, Mandarin Gallery, is Elevatione. The brand that carries various “Time Stops” skin-care products that help reverse signs of ageing.
All Elevatione Time Stops products are based on a hand selected infusion of herbs and plants naturally extracted with fresh aqua or olive oil over a three-day process. The extracts induced then create a rich and unique composition of natural minerals and vitamins that restores a healthy glow.
Vanilla Luxury caught up with Golani, store manager of Elevatione Time Stops for a quick chat about their products.
Vanilla Luxury: What is your background?
Golani: I previously worked for the operations team of Elevatione, and have been in Singapore for the last 6 years now.
Vanilla Luxury: Of all of brands, why Elevatione Time Stops?
Golani: I saw the difference it made to my skin. I told myself that if I were to sell anything, it should be a product I, personally believe in. I have used this brand and have personally seen visible results not just on myself but on my high-profile customers such as celebrities and royalties.
Vanilla Luxury: How were you introduced to Elevatione Time Stops?
Golani: I have been in the beauty industry for quite some time now. When I heard that Elevatione Time Stops was going to launch in Singapore, I personally wanted to try their products and saw the difference it made to my skin - that is how I decided to join the team.
The ingredients in their products is truly the key secret of this brand.
Vanilla Luxury: How many countries does Elevatione Time Stops operate in currently?
Golani: Our founder started the brand in Singapore not before long, expanding into Hong Kong and shortly after, to London. They pretty much entered 3 markets at the same time.
Vanilla Luxury: From the entire range of Elevatione Time Stops, which is your favourite and why?
Golani: My personal favourite is the 60 second Firmax Mask which retails for SGD2,200 nett. It is a very simple product to use and it really works. You simply apply the mask twice a week and the serum twice everyday.
The thing about us men is that we like things made simple. Instead of using a bunch of products like day creams, night creams, serums, eye creams, which comes up to over 5 or more different types of products, we prefer something quick but effective.
If I were to put it in another perspective then the serum is like eating healthy, it feeds your skin and nourishes you. But that is not all that we need to keep fit right? So that is when the mask comes in and it works like going to the gym. The same way you go to the gym to exercise and build your muscles, in this case the mask is working on your face. The 60-second Firmax Mask gives really fast results. It is not just a quick fix (it works), but it is even more than that.
Vanilla Luxury: What makes your products different from others?
Golani: Each product is handmade and it takes approximately three days to produce. Again, for better understanding let me put it in a metaphor. Skincare products work like food for the skin. All the big brands do mass production; it is like eating fast food every day. It is fast food for your skin. Now if you go to a Michelin star or family owned restaurant that serves you gourmet food, that is healthy. That is what Elevatione Time Stops is all about – handmade gourmet food for your skin made with hand-picked natural ingredients.
