There is a reality about the impending milestone of 40 which makes you look at your skin with a little more caution. The bags under my eyes maybe more directly linked to three children, but the wrinkles, the lines, they’re another matter.
I was contacted by Purito, a Korean skin care brand which launched in 2013. Focused on an approach which is pure and natural, this is reflected in Purito using EWG- Green Level ingredients. The strive to create the most respectful product is demonstrated in its focus.
Whilst the packaging is simplistic, its eco-friendly, focused on avoiding unnecessary packaging. The products themselves avoid any hint of requiring caution or containing allergic ingredients.Finally understanding that better skin care will help me look younger, I have spent the last month using products across the skin care regime. Up until trialling Purito I was really stuck in a routine of cleansing and moisturising.
Even this I got wrong. Recently I ran out of moisturiser so picked up some low price product. I couldn’t believe the difference it made to my skin. I looked older, my skin seemed to have lines in it that shouldn’t have been there.
Initially I introduced the Centella Green Level Calming Toner and Buffet Serum to my routine. I decided not to overdo it, concerned that if my skin didn’t agree with the product or was suddenly over-hydrated and greasy. But I needn’t have worried.I used the Centella Green Level Calming Toner after cleansing, and yes, surprised to see how much more it removed despite having cleansed. I used cotton pads to apply, and just one gentle tip was enough to tone my face.
My new-found understanding is that the ingredients encourage smoothing, soothing and relieving the skin. I’m not an expert, but it smells fresh and improves the appearance of my skin.
In the month I’ve been using it I’ve had a reduction in break-outs, so I am convinced that my skin is better nourished- with the right ‘foods’.
I was really eager to try out the Centella Green Level Buffet Serum. I’ve read so much recently about people using serums, and have to admit beyond my hair, I never have.
The serum can be used morning and night, although I was concerned about over-hydrating my skin to the point of greasiness. It’s used as part of my evening cleansing routine, and was surprised by how easily it’s been incorporated. It doesn’t make my skin feel greasy so I enjoy using it knowing I don’t feel ‘cloggy’ going to sleep.
Purito’s Centella Green Level Buffet Serum comprises 49% Centalla Asiatica to calm skin and reduce pigmentation. I’ve really appreciated how well it absorbs into the skin, and it has made my skin feel better and created an ‘even-ness’ in appearance rather than combination skin.
As a result, I’m convinced by adding serums. I love that people can see the difference in my skin’s appearance. It has been since I started using Purito’s Centella Green products and I have to appreciate this correlation.And, as for my favourite product, oh my the Centella Green Level Recovery Cream. I admit that I love all of the products. But the recovery cream is my favourite. I find myself using just the right amount. It’s the sort of cream which you need in the right amount, and the right amount is reasonable. I do put a penny-sized piece on my finger tip and it’s plenty.
As mentioned, there was a lot of work to do. My skin was in such a poor condition, and so quickly my skin felt good again. More so, the recovery cream hasn’t affected my make-up routine. My make-up goes on really well after applying the recovery cream. And I love the smell, it’s clean, it’s fresh, and it stays with you.The final product I tried was the Purito Defence Barrier Cleanser. This is a gel cleanser which you use with water into a lather. Because it’s full of good ingredients, it feels good to your skin. Admittedly it’s not as harsh other cleansers. If you’re wearing waterproof mascara, you definitely need a make-up remover.
Oddly, although probably appropriately, since I’ve been using Purito products I’m not wearing as much make-up. I’ve use less foundation and am less likely to cover myself in as much powder. I am feeling much more confident in my skin.
Although, of course, for the purpose of honesty, I’m still using just as much under-eye concealer.
I have really enjoyed using Purito products. I’m more tempted to repurchase the Centella Green Level Recovery Cream and Centella Green Level Buffet Serum, probably in appreciation of what I didn’t have before and the improvements I’ve made to my skin.
I do think though, that the more care you can add to your skin, the better you’ll feel within it.
