Ever since I’ve read about how terrible abrasive scrubs are for your skin, I’ve gone cold turkey on all scrubs made with particles such as walnut shell powder like the famous St Ives Apricot scrub. Nowadays since I’m using acid toners daily, I don’t really see the need for a weekly scrub. However, there are times when I want to feel the instantaneous skin smoothing effects of scrubs, I turn to this product – the Orbis Powder Wash +. As usual, let’s check out its ingredients before we start, shall we?
ZEA MAYS (CORN) STARCH, POTASSIUM MYRISTATE, TALC, SODIUM COCOYL GLYCINATE, SORBITOL, MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE, PROTEASE, SILICA, GLYCYL GLYCINE, HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN, LIPASE, PEG-7 GLYCERYL COCOATE, PENTYLENE GLYCOL, WATER (AQUA), ALCOHOL, SODIUM HYALURONATE, ROYAL JELLY EXTRACT
How does the Orbis Powder Wash + fare?
As indicated right in the product’s name, the Orbis Powder Wash + is formulated in a powder form and you need to add water to it to form a thick creamy foam. Then you’ll use the foam to wash your face as per normal. Since this product is formulated with two different enzymes – Protease and Lipase – that each tackle the old keratin and sebum components of keratin plugs, once you rinse off the product after massaging it on your face for around one minute, you’ll find that your skin feels incredibly smooth and the bumpy blackheads and whiteheads on your nose and chin areas also feel smoothed out. In short, this is a good product to replace abrasive scrubs and it’s really value for money too because it lasts a long time.
Where can you find it?
I bought it from Orbis stores in Singapore. Orbis Singapore had just debuted their online shop and you can also purchase from there. Delivery is free until 14 June 207. It retails at S$25 (50g sized).
