    Orbis is finally here in Singapore!!

    I don’t know how to hide my joy when Orbis Singapore Facebook page appeared in my suggested page. I immediately added the page and jio my beauty junkie gang (Cynthia and Mia) to attend their focus group. I have been telling Cynthia about Orbis since years back. I love their concept of oil-free in their product is and have been complaining why they don’t want to open a store in Singapore. Quite sometime back, I did a new product feature and a review on the Petit shake.

    I have did a introduction on Orbis in my review post. You can check it out if you are interested.

    I have draft this blog entry for more than a month as my project is reached the end and I need to clear lots of paper work plus I have also just launched a new blog shop whereby I am selling ladies clothes. I know how saturated this line is but still I love fashion.

    Anyway, I was late because of the jam near Kranji. I really have to apologies for it because I hate people coming late for event and here I am late for one of my favourite brands.

    1. Exfoliating Gel

    Orbis Oil Cut Aqua Peeling Gel

    These are the dead skin on my hands… Ew~

    Skin does feel softer after this gentle exfoliating

    2.  Bubble mask

    To be used after exfoliating to enhance the effect. It has a bit

    Orbis Oil Cut Whip Soda pack

    A demonstration of how fantastic this is!!

    I over pressed a bit.

    After blending out and just let it stay on your skin for 1 minute. This is my personal favourite among all the items recommend.

    3. Skincare

    Orbis Aquaforce range for normal skin.

    The lotion.

    4. Sunscreen. (Note: Orbis Sunscreen is always famous in the Taiwan magazine!!)

    From left to right: UV Cut Sunscreen on Face Light, UV Cut Super Liquid Foundation and UV Cut Sunscreen Super

    UV Cut Sunscreen on Face Light

    Surprisingly, this has a thicker consistency than the UV Cut Super Liquid Foundation. The coverage is higher

    UV Cut Super Liquid Foundation

    Like i mentioned earlier, I expected this to be thicker but it was a more watery consistency but I personally preferred this more.

    Lastly is the UV Cut Sunscreen Super which is super runny and lightweight.

    Orbis Lasting Foundation UV

    Orbis UV Cut Sunsrceen Powder

    Yup. the first one is more like a 2 way face cake while the bottom one is sunscreen in powder form!! Cheers to the humid weather in Singapore. I guess powder will be less oily for my oily skin.

    5. Makeup removal

    I have introducted the aqua peeling gel at the beginning of the post so i shall talked about the Orbis Clear liquid.

    Orbis Oil Cut Cleansing Liquid

    I was very suprised by the texture of it.

    I used it to remove the sunscreen I applied earlier. It remove sunscreen very well. (I have already used it when I was blogging so this products really works!!)

    [Review] Orbis Petit shake (Peach)

    If you read Taiwan or Japanee magazine, you should be familiar with Orbis. This brand has the same concept as DHC and Fancl. In Taiwan and Japan, they are known as the big 3 for the mail order for beauty product. They each are similar yet different. Fancl is famous for its “no preservative” and DHC is famous for its “Olive Oil” product that is moisturising. Orbis is actually somewhere in the middle, for people like me who do not stick to a single brand of product, with Fancl product life span is just too short for me, whereas DHC seems to be great in their olive oil based. I personally used to use their cleansing oil and soap before blogging here. I have to admit I love the texture but sometimes I feel the soap can be a bit too strong and the cleansing oil seems messy when removing eye makeup. Orbis seems to be somewhere in between. I will do a review on their skincare next time but now I shall do a review on Orbis Petit shake (Peach).

    This petit shake (Peach) consist of 7 packets of 100g syrup.
    Ingredient List: 果糖葡萄糖漿、白桃果汁、難消化性糊精、黃桃果肉、砂糖、去蛋白蜂王漿、增黏劑(果膠:蘋果萃取)、酸味料、檸檬酸鈉、香料、維他命C、檸檬酸亞鐵鈉、維他命E、菸鹼酸、泛酸鈣、維他命B6、B2、B1、A、葉酸、維他命B12、維他命D
    Translated from Google Translate: Fructose, glucose syrup, white peach juice, dextrin, yellow peach pulp, sugar, protein royal jelly, thickener (pectin: Apple extract), sour flavour, sodium citrate, vitamin C, citric acid ferroussodium, vitamin E, niacin, calcium pantothenate, vitamin B6, B2, B1, A, folic acid, vitamin B12, vitamin D
    *Ingredient List taken from Orbis Official Website*

     These are my haul from Hong Kong few months back during my honeymoon and the one circle with a red arrow is the one that I am reviewing today


    The packaging of the Orbis Petit Shake (Peach) silver aluminium foil packing. Instruction in Japanese at the back of the package.

    How to drink this drink:

     Step 1: Pour the syrup from the packet into your cup.

     *Do notice there is some peach fruit pulp inside the syrup.

     Step 2: Add the milk. It must be cold!! (Refer to my review for the reason)

     Did a gif for Step 2.


    Before your stir, this is how gross it look like. X(

     Step 3: Just Stir till they are fully mixed together.

     Tada!~ The final product. I added a bit too much of milk so dun really have the smoothies feel.

    Review
    I love trying meal replacement from Japan, they always spend a lot of effort with the flavouring so the taste is always great unlike local slimming drinks. In general, this smoothie taste alright, it is not as fantastic as the smoothie outside but it does not taste awful too.However, I am still wondering is it because the milk (I used HL milk) that I am using is not suitable for smoothie because the milk kinda of also have its own taste.Therefore, the taste seems to be funny but it is not awful.

    Towards the end of the smoothie, I felt full which they succeed in their function as meal replacement drink but at the same time there is a disgusted tasting also came out due to the thick remaining base. It is most likely cause because it is not cold anymore so it feels like drinking something very thick at the bottom, make it disgusting. I must highlight it is not the taste which is disgusting but the sensation when drinking it.

    I am not sure if I will re-purchase this product. I will try again with other milk to see if it taste different or not. I also purchase the mix berry flavour which might taste better in my view. I will review it once I tried them.

    Rating:
    Taste: 6/10
    Feeling of fullness: 9/10
    Sensational: 2/10
    Overall: 57/100
    Remarks: Average but not sure if I will re-buy this product.

    Disclaimer:
    This product featured by me is purchase from my Hong Kong honeymoon trip which I have yet to blog about it. This is not a sponsored post nor this product is sponsored to me for reivew. This review is based on my honest and complete opinion on the product.

    Update (14th September 2013)

    I am sorry for updating only until now. I forgot all about this blog post until I am going to blog on Obris this few so I figured out, I should post an update of my experience. I have actually tried this for a few more times and it taste better and better on my subsequent tries. The trick about drinking this shake is to drink it cold with Magnolia milk. Once u mix it, just finished all in a go. I tried with a few milk after that and somehow it is drank best with Magnolia milk. (Magnolia did not pay me for this recommendation) Having finish the whole box (Mine with 6 packets), I think I will still buy it in the future. It taste so much better than many meal supplements out there and to me it is not that expensive to drink as compared to other more expensive and awful taste ones.
