ORBIS Powder Wash +

5 years ago / beauty

100% Oil Free skincare from Japan!

I think it's no surprise now that I'm a huge fan of all things Japanese - the country (we try to go back a few times a year!), the foooddddddd and of course, the makeup and skincare brands.

One thing I've noticed about Japanese women is how flawless their skin always look and every time I'm in Japan, I'll end up checking out the various local brands (much to the husband's annoyance lol) for some new finds.

ORBIS store at Kanazawa, Japan

One of the brands I discovered recently's ORBIS!

Brand / Oil Cut Concept

Established in 1984, ORBIS is a leading Japanese skincare and cosmetics company that advocates inner and outer beauty by promoting wellness from within. Inspired by the belief that cutting out oil is the key to releasing the vital power of our skin, ORBIS created their signature Oil Cut skincare.

The leading product from this brand is their ORBIS Powder Wash +

You know how you sometimes feel that the cosmetics you had used in your early twenties seem to be losing effectiveness as you get older?

This is actually largely due to the reduced function of the skin’s inner enzymes responsible for six elements essential for beautiful skin - moisture, smoothness, clarity, resilience, barrier function and softness.

An oil free and moisture-rich environment enhances your skin’s metabolism and activates the inner enzymes to support formation of healthy cells for beautiful skin - which explains why ORBIS's products are all 100% oil-free!

If you have stubborn blackheads (erm, strawberry nose), enlarged pores and/or dull complexion, then this wash is made for you!

For me, I do not have major pore concerns (I don't want to tempt fate, but thank god my acne has cleared up!) but now that I'm in my thirties, I would like to start some regular maintenance of my pores and prevent excessive build up.

(I don't like to use scrubs as I find them too harsh and abrasive on my skin - which causes aging by the way!)

Pour out an appropriate amount onto palm

Did you know? Keratin plugs are formed from hardened sebum and accumulated old keratin over time. ORBIS Powder Wash + is formulated with two different enzymes – Protease and Lipase - that each tackle the old keratin and sebum components of keratin plugs. It is thus able to skillfully target and break down these components while maintaining skin moisture to create smooth and silky skin.

Lather with lukewarm water

The Easy Whip Formula enables the powder to dissolve and lather quickly, creating firm and creamy foam that can effectively capture the grime broken down by the enzymes. The foam cushion texture washes gently without irritating the skin.

Massage gently on damp skin

A good facial wash is one that thoroughly removes excessive grime while retaining ample amount of moisture on your skin. The ORBIS Powder Wash + contains collagen, hyaluronic acid and royal jelly extract that help to improve moisture and firmness.

Rinse thoroughly

You can use it in place of your regular facial wash 2 to 4 times a week, depending on your skin condition. As my skin is generally pretty good, I was recommended to use it 1-2 times per week.

You should observe a smoother, brighter and more radiant complexion in 7 days :)

I was also introduced to the complete ORBIS product lineup and I really like the ORBIS =U hydration and anti-aging series.

In particular,


On days that I don't use the ORBIS Powder Wash +, I'll use this non-foaming jelly wash to eliminate dullness for a clearer skin tone.


This original formulation contains ultra-hydrating ingredients that permeates deeply and moisturizes.


I like how it moisturizes my skin without being sticky so makeup glides on really well. Plus, it contains SPF 20 PA++ too!


As I sleep in an air-conditioned room (like most of us in Singapore!), it can get quite drying. This night moisturizer comes in a gel-light texture works really well through the night and I wake up the next morning with much firmer and bouncier skin.


This makeup remover is SUCH A DREAM!

It removes waterproof makeup thoroughly and at the same time, improves your skin's hydration. More importantly, you DO NOT have to use any cotton pad with this product which is something I have been looking for in a makeup remover for the longest time! (Using cotton pads actually ages your skin as they often tug and cause abrasions against your face!)

Additionally, ORBIS Singapore also stocks oral supplements and my favorite's this Collagen The Beauty drink that contains 8 types of ingredients for radiant and youthful skin and tastes like a yummy fruit cocktail!

I really like how this brand is inexpensive and how their products are so simple and fuss-free, without out-of-this-world claims... just quality skincare that works like how they are supposed to!

Hope you like them too!

Psst, from now till 17 March, you can purchase the ORBIS Powder Wash + at just $20 (U.P $25). More details here!
