As someone with incredibly dry skin, having hydrating and moisturizing skincare products in my lineup is a must-have at all times. When it comes to my face, I’m always on the hunt to find high-quality and effective skincare products that not only actually work and do what they promise to do, but that are also free from harsh and potentially drying ingredients— and that’s where Orpheus skincare comes in. I discovered the brand last year and since then, my skin has never looked better. If you know me, I’m not one to constantly switch up products so when I find one I like, I stick with it for a while. With that said, that has been the case with Orpheus’ Resurrection Bio-Shield Cream and I want to share this greatness in a bottle with the world.
Never heard of Orpheus before? Well, what sets them apart from other premium skincare brands on the market is the brand's formulation. All of its products are derived from botanical ingredients and plant extracts that have been shown to provide exceptional results for the skin. For the Bio-Shield Cream in particular, the key to the product is Orpheus’ Flower Cell Peptide Complex made from three concentrated bioactive: Resurrection flower extract, Bengal flower stem cells, Nicotiana flower tri-peptides.
This complex has been clinically proven to repair DNA genes, boost collagen production, and improve skin elasticity. Now, enough of the technical talk. Let’s get on to the real reason you’re reading this—the review.
Orpheus Ressurection Bio-Shield Cream
I’ve been using this product for over a month now and the difference in my skin is unbelievable. Prior to using this cream, my skin was not only dry and red, but flaky and dull.
The Bio-Shield Cream claims to be an “intensive restoring cream that repairs damaged skin barrier and shields skin from moisture loss and pollution, with a silky-smooth cocooning effect.”
With that said, I can’t say that the cream necessarily repaired my skin barrier because quite frankly, I don’t know what that would look like. According to the brand, however, it's the formulation of niacinamide and Vitamin E that creates this barrier.
On the flip side, in terms of retaining moisture and hydrating my skin, I could not be more pleased.
For the first time in a while, I didn’t feel like my skin was hanging on for dear life. I applied this cream first thing in the morning and right before I went to sleep. I could feel my skin absorbing the cream and reacting well to it. It left my face with this cool sensation that I loved because it was relaxing and soothing. Plus, it helped minimize the amount of redness and irritation my skin would normally experience from the harsh winter weather and wind.
For application, unlike other creams I’ve tried, I didn’t feel like there was a “filmy layer” on my skin. It felt natural and effortlessly smooth. I’ve noticed a difference in my complexion as it looks visibly more hydrated and supple. It’s not as lifeless and dull as it once was which is a major highlight.
Another selling point for me was the blue light, pollution, and UV shield. I can’t say I’m outside all that much, but I am on my computer for nine hours a day so blue light protection piqued my interest. It’s hard to determine exactly how the product shielded my skin from pollutants, but I’m sure it helped more than hurt. Anything to protect my skin from potential damage, I’m here for it. Did I mention it’s free from toxins, synthetics, mineral oil, petroleum and artificial fragrances?
If you’re just starting to dive into the world of skincare or are looking for a way to augment your current routine, Orpheus is a great brand to try. With a price tag of $120, the Bio-Shield Cream is expensive. Also, note that if you use it in the morning and at night, you’ll just about finish it after six weeks which means you’ll have to buy another one. Now, the price point can be justified since the product is made from high-quality ingredients and works, but that isn’t to say there aren’t other brands that have similar products for less.
Overall, I don’t see myself switching to a different facial cream anytime soon. As I mentioned earlier, if I find a product that I like, it’ll be with me for a while and that is definitely the case with Orpheus.
