My skin has been going through a rough patch and hasn't been behaving its best lately, so I've been reaching for a line that provides intense hydration, gentle exfoliation and light base makeup to help calm it down. I have found all of this in Purlisse, a natural skincare brand inspired by Asian beauty with key ingredients including Blue Lotus and White Tea which has done wonders for my reactive skin. From sheet masks, to eye serums, facial and lip moisturizers and even a BB cream, this brand has it all!
I've been reaching for the Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant* twice weekly. The combination of lotus seed and bamboo powder give it a slight gritty texture, making it effective to slough off dead skin cells to reveal smoother skin without being harsh. Clay masks are my absolute favourite because they do wonders when it comes to detoxifying and calming inflamed skin, and this one is made with both kaolin and bentonite to draw impurities to the surface. I love that it feels cooling as well. To reap its benefits, I apply a thin layer and let it sit for 10 minutes, and then massage in circular motions right before rinsing. My skin is left feeling as soft as a baby's bottom!
The Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer* has been a great addition to my morning routine. Because of its light, non-greasy texture and quick absorption ability, it acts as a perfect base for my makeup. Made with super hydrating extracts including white tea, vitamin E and marine plants, this moisturizer works to nourish and replenish your skin's moisture barrier and decrease inflammation as well as smooth fine lines. As with all Purlisse products, this lotion is free of parabens, mineral oil, phtalates and synthetic color and fragrance, and my acne-prone skin has been thanking me for this!
To soothe the delicate area around my eyes, the Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum* has been coming in handy. Not only does this thick gel serum hydrate and brighten, but it also firms and decreases puffiness. Blue Lotus works to fight free radicals as it is rich in antioxidants, and a peptide complex helps lift the skin. I mostly deal with dryness and dark circles, and with using this serum consistently I've noticed the skin under and around my eyes looking lighter and feeling softer.
The Blue Lotus + White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask* is made from natural fiber and infused with a handful of nourishing ingredients such as castor oil, witch hazel and anise fruit extract. I like to pop it in the fridge right before for a cooling effect and make sure to leave it on for at least 15 minutes, and then peel it off and massage the remaining gel into my skin. I've been doing this once a week to replenish my moisture barrier and it's been doing wonders for my dry spots.
The BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30* is perfect for everyday wear as it is very light on the skin and build-able as well. Available in three shades, I went with the lightest and it matches my post-winter skin perfectly. Some key ingredients include chamomile and maple sugar to provide the skin with a boost of hydration. I love how nicely it applies with a brush, and how it has a slightly dewy finish. Since I have combination skin, I also dab a bit of powder on my T-zone to prevent shine from peeking throughout the day. The added SPF means I can use it well into summer with an added touch of bronzer, too!
Lastly, the Daily Lip Nourisher* is a petroleum-free liquid lip balm that has been coming in handy to keep my lips crack free in the last few weeks since starting use. Containing mango and shea butter, vitamin E, rice bran and jojoba oils, this product truly works and can even be used under tinted lip products to make colours stand out more. I've been enjoying applying it at bedtime since it takes a little while to really sink in.
