An Introduction To ORIKS : BB Creams



 L to R – Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream, Gemstone Nano Platinum BB Cream, GOLD Nano Caviar BB Cream, Magic BB Cream, Natural Magic BB Cream, Homme BB Cream

ORIKS samples in one of the beauty boxes I have received recently was my first introduction to ORIKS, a Korean brand famous for their BB Cream launched in Korea and Taiwan in 2007. In September 2011, ORIKS Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., the Sole Distributor in Malaysia, officially launched ORIKS at the KLCC Beauty Expo 2011. ORIKS’s 1st Counter in Malaysia was launched at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Level 4 on 15 June 2012.

I was on my way to tea at TWG when I was stopped in my tracks by the ORIKS beauty consultant who offered samples of their BB Cream. Since I had some time to kill, I stopped and asked a few questions about the brand. ORIKS offers 7 types of BB Cream including one for men! Not surprising since I have often seen men looking at compact powders and BB Creams at drugstores. Men want even skin tones too nowadays so why not come up with more options for men who want to look good.
