Get pampered this Christmas
Japanese skincare brand Orbis has come up with a new line of anti-ageing products that promise soft, bouncy and moist skin, thanks to a formula that regenerates enzymes and does not damage the DNA.
The ORBIS=U Encore products are oil-free. The ingredients include restorative-type protein, Heat Shock Protein, to repair enzymes damaged by ultraviolet rays, and D.N.A. Hibis Extract for stimulating the body's DNA for healthy enzymes.
There are three products in the line: ORBIS=U Encore Lotion to be used after facial wash, ORBIS=U Encore Day Milk for day moisturising and ORBIS=U Encore Night Creamy Gel for night moisturising. They retail for $67, $65 and $73 respectively, and can be found at all ORBIS stores and counters.
