The PURITO BB cream is the second of the two PURITO products I received from eopenmarket.com for the purpose of trying and reviewing of them. The eopenmarket team was so generous as to actually send me two 30ml tubes of the cream.
I have to say that I have a minimal experience with South Korean bb creams. So far I have tried only a few of them and have done so tentatively, that is, I’ve tested samples of Lioele Triple Solution BB Cream, Lioele Dollish Veil Vita BB Cream and Missha Signature Real Complete BB Cream #21 and only recently went for a full-size version of the Missha Signature Real Complete BB Cream in #23. To this Ican add my experience last summer with the Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion compeact which uses a BB formulation but which turned out to be far from hydrating for my skin. I passed the cushion on to a much younger person who was really happy with what it did for her skin.
So with the experience of a near novice and the curiosity of one too, I was really glad to get the chance to try the Purito BB Cream.
The limited colour range of most Korean bb creams is widely known and widely lamented and the case with this cream is no different – it comes in a single shade.
What the product claims to do:
The formulation is promoted as a 3-effect functional beblesh balm which provides skin with both UV A and B and with Adenosine and Niacinamide – two anti-ageing cell communicating agents that help protect skin from darkening and work towards evening out and clarifying skin tone and decreasing signs of aging.
Other star functional ingredients in the cream are: Snal Extract, Biosaccharide Gum-4, Agave Americana Leaf Extract and Pancratium MArtimum Extract – a combination that is supposed to provide skin with rich moisture and nutrition for improved skin health.
The ingredient list also features Titanium Dioxide, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate – two of the product’s sunscreen agent – second, after water and a little later comes another one – Zinc Oxide.
The Cosdna analysis of the full ingredient list shows no big red alerts. There is just Butylene Glycol and Zinc Oxide which are marked as potential acne triggers. During my two weeks of daily use of this product I have not experienced any irritation on other skin issues. The cream has been quite well behaved and I’ve come to see it as a really good daily bb cream.
I’ve been wearing this product every day in the past two weeks and I have to say that while it does create a slightly paler cast on my face upon application, the product then seems to adapt to my skin tone. The cream spreads easily on skin and the coverage it gives is light to medium which I find ok for daily use.
What I love about this cream is the degree of moisture it gives to my skin not just upon application but for hours afterwards. I do find it to be very moisturising and so appropriate for very dry skin.
On the whole I find this cream to be a great choice for daily use purposes. It is an added bonus that it is obtainable at a fairly affordable price. Right now it can be purchased for $9.06 on eopenmarket.com.
