*This review was written by a blogger external of HIKOCO, and was provided the following products free of charge.
Let’s talk about this enthralling line of skincare. Whether you are all about saving the planet or maybe you care just a tad about the environment, either way, you won’t be disappointed by PURITO and their Centella line. This is a cruelty-free, non-toxic, vegan friendly products that uses natural based ingredients.
Right as you pick up the product, you will notice the humble box that’s been made from recycled paper.
I noticed a mild, feel-good lavender scent with the PURITO Centella products. They are not overwhelming like some lavender scented products I have used in the past. Next, I will review the products individually.
PURITO | Centella Green Level Buffet Serum
You only need 1 pump and it is enough to spread the entire face. The serum spreads easily like aloe gel. It felt like my skin drank it up like it’s been thirsty! First time using this product, I didn’t feel any tingling sensation so I noticed right away that this is a gentle product that is safe to use.
Upon application, skin felt slightly sticky, but not in an unpleasant way. And because I followed up with PURITO Centella Recovery Cream afterwards, skin was not left sticky at all. I do encourage this serum and the cream as a set. This serum is mild and did not cause any irritations on my face.
PURITO | Centella Green Level Recovery Cream
I used this product as my last skincare routine, once in the morning and once at night. The very first time I used the Recovery Cream, I noticed the difference when I woke up the next morning. After hours of blasting heater, I still woke up with hydrated and soft skin!
This cream spread well on my face; it is not greasy nor is it sticky! Many hydrating (recovery) creams are very thick and even oily, so this is a particularly good one if you’re tired of having shiny and gluey face.
Personally, this is my favourite product. After creaming, I can’t help but to keep touching my face! This is something every dry skin individual would appreciate.
The moment I applied this sunscreen, I noticed the difference between this and other sunscreens I have used in the past. One thing I always dreaded with sunscreens are how thick, sticky, stingy and shiny it feels on my face. But PURITO Centella Sunscreen is exactly the opposite! I put it on, and it felt like I was putting on lotion and it did not leave white streaks on my face.
After hours of being outdoors for few sunny days, I didn’t get any breakouts and any skin troubles. This is a product that I intend on restocking when it runs out.
PURITO | Conclusion
With all 3 products, I have tested on my hand first to make sure I don’t have any allergic reaction or trouble. Personally, these products were mild and safe to use.
I would describe my skin as combination type. Generally normal to dry with slightly oily nature in the T-zone. Complex as it sounds, I generally tend to go for skincare that is gentle and calming. I have also been on the look out for anti-aging products as a precaution. Because of my skin type and what I am looking for, these products come as a breath of fresh air!
Overall, my face felt soft and hydrated throughout the day, even when I spent most of my day in a dry, heat filled room. And after using it daily for several days, dry patches on my skin disappeared.
Do not let these raw, modest brown packaging trick you into thinking this is some ordinary skincare. These are quality products that are guilt-free and feels luxurious. I would highly recommend these products to my besties and to you!
