The weekend has been so boring, no shopping, unless you count groceries. I was hoping to get my new digi cam, but the store was closed for the holiday. I don't even know what I'm gonna do today.
This is the Orbis Cleansing Liquid. The pink bottle is LE which is why I bought it. I don't think I would have purchased the Cleansing Liquid if it wasn't for that reason. It sells for 17000won, but I got it when it was on sale for 16000won (haha like $1 off). I also purchased the refill for 15000won and there is 150mL in each item. I really like the refill pack because storing it is more convenient. (I had to take the pictures in the washroom because Tim was still snoring away)
Aside from being pink, the bottle also has some pretty flower designs on it. Although the bottle is plastic, it feels very sturdy and feel like it will keep its shape. The bottle is probably made better just so people can buy refills for it. The non LE bottle is just made with clear plastic.
This is my first cleansing oil and I like it already. Previously, I've been using the Mandom Express remover. After I bought the Orbis cleanser, I started to use the Mandom remover for my eyes only and the Cleansing Liquid for the rest of my face. I wanted to make sure that my face was fully cleansed of all makeup and I didn't feel the Mandom remover did a good job anymore. It worked well for me the first few times, then I started to notice traces of eye makeup in the morning. I still gave the Mandom remover another chance but a few days ago, after using the Mandom remover for my eye makeup, my eyes started to sting >.<
I'm liking the Orbis cleanser because I can feel that my face is well cleansed and it does not leave a dry feeling like the Mandom remover. I can also use less than the Mandom remover to cleanse my entire face, including my eye makeup. I used 6-8 pumps for the Mandom remover and about a pump and a half (about a quarter sized) for the Orbis cleanser.
I use this on dry skin and rinse off with water. My face feels a little bit squeaky clean, but it does not feel dry or tight and this is a major plus for the winter months.
The ingredients on the Taiwan site:
WATER‧DIPROPYLENE GLYCOL‧PEG-20 GLYCERYL TRIISOSTEARATE‧PEG-20 GLYCERYL ISOSTEARATE‧METHYL GLUCETH-10‧PEG-8 CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC GLYCERIDES‧PEG-45 STEARATE‧BUTYLENE GLYCOL‧DIPOTASSIUM GLYCYRRHIZATE‧SODIUM CITRATE‧TOCOPHEROL‧CITRIC ACID‧MELISSA OFFICINALIS (BALM MINT) LEAF EXTRACT‧ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS (ROSEMARY) LEAF EXTRACT‧EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS LEAF EXTRACT
I applied some of the Orbis Liquid Foundation on my arm and you can see how the foundation is kinda clumped into oil blobs which rinses off easily.
I have a minor rant, my face is slightly paler than my neck!! I think I have to blame the Skinfood Snow Tea mask sheets. I've been using them twice a week for at least 4 months and it did help reduce my freckles as you can see in my previous post. I didn't imagine that my face would get that much paler from using the masks so I've stopped using them argh! I can't wait till spring.
