PURITO is known for its Centella Green Level Safe Sun and has a strong following for its commitment to making 100% vegan, cruelty free and pregnancy safe products. All lines are formulated with natural, organic ingredients and free from harmful chemicals such as ethanol, paraben, PEG, mineral oil, propylene glycol and silicone.
As the temperatures drop, I'm looking for new ways to nourish and strengthen my skin – and what could be nicer than finally trying this enthusiastic brand! I have selected two products from PURITO's Centella range, both of which are made entirely from EWG Green Level ingredients that are safe for sensitive skin.
Centella Green Level Recovery Cream
This highly concentrated face cream contains 50% Centella asiatica extract, niacinamide, madecassinic acid, asiaticoside and asian acid to strengthen the skin barrier, reduce the appearance of acne scars, soothe inflamed and sensitive skin, shrink pores and moisturize the skin and moisturize supple. Unlike other cica creams, it has a relatively light texture that can be easily absorbed by the skin to avoid clogging the pores.
I was drawn to the multiple skin care benefits of the recovery cream. I don't have inflamed or sensitive skin, but I've struggled with acne scars and enlarged pores for a long time. The cream has excellent water retention ability to control internal dryness and promises to slow down the aging process of the skin and stimulate collagen formation. As I near my mid-20s, I'm starting to see some signs of aging and dehydrated skin. So these benefits are all attractive benefits.
This white cream has a natural herbal scent that should be familiar to those who have tried other Centella products. It goes on super smooth, feels gentle on the skin and leaves a radiant finish. The texture was a little thicker than expected. I was initially concerned about putting a primer on top and saved it for nighttime use only. When I finally ventured into the day-to-day usage, I was pleased to find my creation went more seamlessly than usual. The cream felt super nourishing on the skin immediately after use. During the testing period, the pigmentation faded and my skin became not only more hydrated, but also stronger and healthier.
Centella Green Level Eye Cream
This mild anti-aging eye cream contains 49% Centella asiatica, four types of peptide extract, panthenol and hyaluronic acid to care for the delicate skin around the eyes. The formula is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and create youthful looking skin. It also forms a moisture barrier to soothe redness, soothe sensitive skin, increase elasticity, protect against environmental stressors, and increase regeneration to create glowing skin.
The eye cream is very moisturizing and is easily absorbed into the skin. It has the same scent as the recovery cream and embodies a similar texture, although its consistency is a little thinner and more fluid. It feels equally gentle and moisturizing on the skin. Unlike other eye creams that may be oily, this one is designed to prevent makeup from caking. It can also be used on other areas of the face where you have wrinkles. I don't have any wrinkles under my eyes yet so this is more of a preventive measure. However, I have dark circles under my eyes and I was hoping the cream would work its magic on them.
I'm usually so preoccupied with acne and pigmentation that I tend to neglect the skin under my eyes. For the past week and a half, I've enjoyed doing some TLC on this area, and I'm pleased that it is getting firmer and brighter. It's a great reminder of the importance of taking care of my skin, including the areas that seem problem-free, in order to keep it in condition for years.
