Korean Beauty Brand PURITO Review

Korean beauty brands are a huge hit in the US market. From luxury department stores to drug stores, you can see K beauty brands popping up everywhere. How exciting it is for the K beauty brands becoming mainstream.

I recently received PURITO skincare and after using it for a few weeks, I am telling you, I really like these products and I can’t wait to share my thoughts and tips!


PURITO Centella Green Level All In One Mild Pad $22
I used this pad right after a cleanser before the Essence. I love the smart design cotton pads with 2 sides. Rough texture side is perfect for extracting and exfoliating the surface of the skin. The smooth side is great for someone who has sensitive skin.


I love these presoaked cotton pads with 10% of Centalla Asiatica extracts to help improve skin texture and the anti-inflammatory effect calms skin. It includes 3 key ingredients:
Asiaticoside: an oil-water balance control and helps collagen formation of dermis layer.
Asiatic acid: strengthens skin barriers, anti-oxide effects, calms the sensitive skin
Madecassic Acid: helps repair damaged and tired skin and reduces trace marks.

PURITO Galacto Niacin 97 Power Essence $18.00

I applied this with my hands right after the toner. I found the texture was little slippery and just a tad oily. But after few minutes, it made my skin look so glowing.  For extra hydration, I soaked 2 pieces of cotton pads with this essence and use it as a face mask for a few minutes.

This water essence offers sebum control, whitening, anti-wrinkle and moisturizing. The very first ingredients is Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (92%) follow by Niacinamide (5%) plus Viscum Album (Mistletoe ) Leaf Extract, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Arginine, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Allantoin and Lactobacillus Ferment

 

PURITO Centella Green Level Buffet Serum $17.30

Asian skin care like to use the word “buffet” instead all you can eat. I would translate this to “all in one” ingredients.  I love this serum! It felt like a super lightweight gel.  Once I applied it on my skin, it made my skin look so dewy. This serum helps improve skin barrier, lightens the skin, delays future aging and adds hydration.


Centella Asiatica Extract (49%) is the very first ingredient. As you may already know, first 5 ingredients may contain more than 60% of the actual product. So I am impressed, especially for only $17.30.
Beside the Centella Asiatica Extract, this buffet serum also contains a peptide,  Asiaticoside, Collagen & Ceramide and Niacinamide & Adenosine.

PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream $17.30

I had a little bit of a hard time, in the beginning, using the tube because it looks to me like medicine lol. I have to take a very close look and make sure it is not. The texture is very light, looks creamy but applies like a gel.  This recovery cream contains 50% if Centella Asiatica Extract. plus Witch Hazel extract creating a synergy effect by soothing skin and minimizing the pores.

Since there is no SPF, I would recommend using this at night. If you want to use during the day, make sure you apply SPF on top.

Overall I am impressed with Purito. For the price you pay, you are getting results and improvements of the skin.
