I recently introduced you all to PURITO, a Korean skincare brand that distinguishes itself for its cruelty-free stance and that focuses on delivering high-quality products made from non-toxic, EWG-certified ingredients. I posted an in-depth review of the PURITO Centella Green Level Buffet Serum, and this time around, I'm back to share a couple more products I have been using together with the serum, namely the PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream and the PURITO Centella Green Level Safe Sun*. I always get excited to try new skincare products and report back on how they perform, as I myself like to research products before trying them out. I hope you find this post helpful if this is your first dive into Korean skincare as well!
The PURITO Green Level Recovery Cream is a light, non-greasy moisturizer that is packed full of hydrating ingredients and can be used both on the face and body. The base is made out of 50% Centella Asiatica extract, also known as tiger grass, a perennial plant native to the wetlands of Asia and that is made up of Asiaticoside, Madacassic and Asiatic acid. The Recovery Cream also contains a plethora of rich, plant-based ingredients such as squalane, glycerin, 2% niacinamide, macadamia seed oil, shea butter, argan oil, mushroom extract, witch hazel, bergamot fruit oil, and lavender oil, just to name a few.
Not only is it great to lock in moisture, but the Recovery Cream also helps whiten the skin, stimulates collagen production, provides an anti-wrinkle defence, helps calm inflamed skin and also helps minimize hyperpigmentation. The scent is very botanical and uplifting, and since it is synthetic-fragrance free, it is especially great for sensitive skin. I enjoy wearing this cream during the day on days when I don't need to step outside and don't have to worry about applying sun protection.
If you are someone who avoids heavy creams but still wants to experience the benefits of a nutrient-rich moisturizer, the Recovery Cream provides just that.
I've also been reaching for the PURITO Centella Green Level Safe Sun on days when I get out of the house, a moisturizer which provides SPF50+ PA++++. The formula is 70% water-based, making it super easy to spread without leaving a white cast or a sticky feeling. Since I often wear makeup when heading out, I appreciate when I can find a daily face lotion that can protect my skin yet not disturb my makeup application, and this one does just that. Safe Sun protects the skin from both UVA and UVB rays while also brightening and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Safe Sun can also be used on both the face and body and, like with any sunscreen, should be reapplied if spending a prolonged time in the sun or following a dip in water to keep the skin protected throughout the day. Once again, this sun protection cream contains the star ingredient, Centella Asiatica extract, as well as glycerin, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, olive oil, lavender oil, and chamomile flower oil. As we are entering the warmer, sunny time of the year, I know I will be getting a lot of use out of this sunscreen lotion in the coming months.
I personally avoid using heavily-scented, greasy sunscreens, and Safe Sun is my definition of the perfect sun protective cream formulation.
I love everything PURITO stands for because they are so transparent and put research into ensuring that their products are safe to use for both adults and children. I also appreciate that their skincare line is so affordable for the high-calibre ingredients they formulate their products with. I would highly recommend you try their line, their products truly are top-notch!
