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!
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 🙂

*** 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.***
Hello! I am Qi Yun, the author and creative behind www.FlyingPistachios.com.
I can be best described as a beauty junkie, picky pot and a perpetual wanderlust. Colours, traveling and listening to people talk inspire me, triggering visions and ideas. I’m often called a walking box filled with ideas. I love working on projects that shows originality and have a chance to make this world a better place.
