Purito is one of my favourite beauty brands not only due to the fact that their products are 100% EWG Green Level certified, but also because of their safe, natural, and cruelty-free philosophy.
If you noticed, their products packaging are all made from environmentally-friendly recycled paper.
I love their Comfy Water Sunscreen and their Centella Green Level Buffet Serum too. Now let’s look at the Centella Green Level Buffet Serum!
What It Is
“Just like an all-you-can-eat buffet, PURITO Centella Green Level Buffet Serum is an all-you-need soothing serum. Formulated with 49% Centella asiatica extract, this liquid-type serum effectively soothes and calms irritated, troubled skin, while fortifying your skin’s barrier with ceramides, hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacinamide, and adenosine. Asiatic acid and madecassic acid boost the anti-inflammatory effects of this must-have serum for sensitive skin types.”
Centella Asiatica Extract (49%), Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glycereth-26, Carbomber, Carbomer, Sclerotium Gum, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Caprylyl Glycol, Panthenol, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Alteromonas Ferment Extract, Pancratium Maritimum Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Disodium EDTA, Adenosine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Ceramide NP, Sodium Hyaluronate, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide- 1 2, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-7, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-10
This has 49% of Centella extract which is quite high and green tea extract – both are my favourite ingredients. It also has asiaticoside as antioxidant, niacinamide for brightening and acne control, hyaluronic acid for hydration, panthenol as soothing ingredient and humectant, and my favourite ones for anti-aging: peptides, cermamide, and adenosine. The main reason I chose to try this serum is because the ingredients are all superstars in the skincare world and also because of the peptides, ceramides and adenosine as this year I told myself that I need to incorporate more anti-aging products and ingredients into my routine. This serum is also free from alcohol.
How To Use
This product is to be used in this sequence:
In the morning: water-based cleanser – toner (optional) – essence (optional) – thinner serum (optional) – Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum – moisturiser or cream – facial oil (optional) – Sunscreen
At night: first cleanser (cleansing oil/micellar water/makeup remover wipes) – second cleanser (water-based cleanser) – toner (optional) – essence (optional) – thinner serum (optional) – Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum – moisturiser or cream – facial oil (optional) – sleeping mask (optional)
As usual, Purito’s packaging is really simple and straightforward. This one comes in a green pump type bottle with quite a lot of writings on it.
It’s sturdy, fuss-free, and one pump dispenses sufficient amount of product but I think Purito can upgrade the packaging aesthetically? What do you think? Maybe Purito focuses more in R&D to create great formulation with best ingredients and environmentally friendly packaging rather than in appearance
𝗧𝗲𝘅𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 & 𝗦𝗺𝗲𝗹𝗹
Subtle smell of lavender. Clear gel-like texture that feels so lightweight & hydrating.
Spreads so nicely. Absorbs into the skin leaving a slightly tacky feeling for a while but as it sinks in fully skin feels dewy.
I experience no itchiness or breakouts or irritation or tiny bumps etc. This all-in-one serum is packed with hero ingredients so this is great for when I am lazy to layer many products on or for anytime I feel like doing a minimal routine. This serum has a soothing effect and as someone who uses chemical exfoliants quite often, 49% Centella Extract plus other goodies such as hyaluronic acid, ceramide, and panthenol are really useful.
Using this consistently for more than four months really strengthens my skin barrier as the dry areas on my face are no longer tight even when spending a lot of time in an air-conditioned room in my house this especially during the Movement Control Order season. It’s also so hydrating and moisturising and my skin feels so chok chok especially when I pair this with any hydrating toner.
I have yet to monitor the anti-aging and anti-wrinkle effects as I don’t have any wrinkle yet but I’m using this on my smile lines and forehead a lot. My skin feels so firm after the third week of using. So happy to include more anti-aging products in my routine!
