ORBIS Takashimaya S.C. Boutique Opening Event

It’s one of the few rare times I am attempting to rush out a post within 2 days from the event, mainly because ORBIS Singapore Takashimaya Opening Promotions are too good to be missed! Secondly because… I think I’ve fallen in love with the minimalist outlook of the brand. Heck, the outlet has the same colours of my studio room! Read all the way to the end to see the promotions!

ORBIS Review
A quick introduction to the brand and what it stands for. The BAs there are all so lovely! I think they look like air stewardess in their crisp uniform and trendy neck ties, what do you think?

 

First up, let’s talk about the brand. While not as wildly popular as Shu Uemera, Shiseido and Majolica Majorca, ORBIS is still a noteworthy brand in Singapore’s beauty scene. While most Japanese beauty brands choose to be located in departmental stores (Tangs, Metro) and personal care store (Watsons, Guardian), ORBIS is one of the few Japanese beauty brands with standalone stores. It now has 6 outlets in Singapore, with the latest opening in Takashimaya Shopping Centre.

 

It opened it’s first retail outlet 16 years ago in Japan with the original concept of 100% Oil-free skincare products. In 2001, it expanded with an integrated concept aimed at delivering true Japanese hospitality. Well if you have experienced customer service in Japan, you’ll agree with me that Singapore’s customer service pale a lot in comparison. Singapore has lots to learn and it’s great to know that there is a beauty brand that identified this gap in the market! The brand attained 1st place in Japan’s Consumer Satisfaction Index for four consecutive years from 2011 to 2014 – visit their stores to experience the top-notch Japanese hospitality!

 

I could recognise how ORBIS new store embodies its brand spirit of ‘Authenticity’:

  • Basic with a serene and minimalist interior. Clean, sleek and modern with harmonised colours of white, grey, blue and wood tones. Simple product packaging without any fuss – what you read is what it does. In fact, the theme of the event is minimalist!
  • Sincere with welcoming and lovely BAs attending to us without being over the top. I was given a detailed introduction to the different skin care ranges available as well as samples for their supplements and tea range. After which, I requested to shop on my own and will ask if I have any need (my preferred shopping style.) Never once did I felt that they were pushy and I had all my questions and requests promptly answered by different BAs as I helped myself around the store.
  • Simple, in fact really simple. Their skincare range is fuss-free and steps are super easy to understand. All products are categorised into skin concerns so identifying which products to go for is a no-brainer.

 

Enough words, let me bring you through the rest of the store and products with pictures and captions 🙂

After the quick introduction, we were guided to create a wooden minimalist necklace that’s in their brand/ store key tones.

A range of vitamin supplements that are chewable and tasty in their various flavours as well! I bought 2 of them – $10 only! Finally supplements that taste good. I am sure I will be able to finish the pack!

On the left, not a mask but a supplement for whitening! On the right is a trial pack, in fact, all the skin care ranges have a trial pack which is great because you get to try all the products in the range without having to commit to the full-size bottles!

Love how everything in the store has a mini explanation standee!

Orbis =U series, an Intelligent skincare that restores skin to ideal condition by empowering skin with Heat Shock Protein , resulting in firmer smoother skin that is highly moisturised and pores that are more refined.

Ok so here’s the detailed explanation haha!

ORBIS AquaForce Series for an intense infusion of water for skin brimming with dewiness and radiance! It prevents water from escaping your skin easily, improve moisture density of the skin and attracts moisture from the atmosphere for 8x more moisture, all in bid to enhance skin’s reservoir function.

Most of their products have a M and a L for the same product type. M represents moisture and has a heavier texture while L represents Light and is the lighter version of the same product type.

Clear range, a 3 step solution that targets the fundamental causes of recurring acne by applying cutting-edge skin science. As we were all allowed to pick 3 products from a range, I choose this range as I am currently experiencing stubborn acne issues along my jawline. It claims to be able to cure hormonal and stress-related acne as well with 90% of users experiencing clearer and healthier skin!
ORBIS Review
ORBIS Clear range taps on a award-winning skin science research from Japan where antimicrobial peptides are found to be the key factor in acne resistance. It has an effect on skin protective functions and is an important factor in suppressing acne. I have high expectations for this range! Already trying it out!
Singapore Beauty Blogger
Once again, all the skin ranges have a trial kit – very thoughtful indeed!!!

ORBIS also offers a comprehensive range of makeup from base to foundation and colours. I got some loose powder for myself – they are insanely soft and fine! Used them today and it looks so natural!

*** I was invited to attend this Media event.  This post objective is to give a quick overview of the brand and my first thoughts on some of the products I tried. This is in no way meant to be a detailed product review. There was no monetary compensation for attending the event.***
