Review PURITO Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream

Clique aqui para português.

I received this product for free from eopenmarket.

PURITO is a “natural” Korean brand that focuses on making products without many fillers and also with EWG green safety level ingredients. They seem to be a new brand that cares about nature. Their packagings are simple and remind me of recycling.

The store called eopenmarket offered me a 20 dollars coupon to buy whatever I wanted, and they also told me I’d be getting a PURITO random item.

[PORTUGUÊS mais abaixo] First impressions on these products that I got from @eopenmarket They offered me a store coupon and I used it o get HANYUL Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Toner, and two foot peeling socks that me and my husband are gonna use later. They also sent me a random @purito_official product. I was hoping it to be the vitamin C serum but I got the Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream, a brightening pudding like cream with 70% of sea buckthorn extract, orange peel oil, 4% of macadamia oil, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and other extracts. The cream has a great INCI for those who prefer more natural products. Also, it doesn't have many fillers. It smells like fresh orange and it doesn't contain synthetic fragrance. Absorbs well and leaves my skin plump, hydrated, and nourished. I'm enjoying it so far! HANYUL Artemisia Toner is not the best one to make layers. It's ethanol free, and contains a high amount of propanediol with glycerin that, if layered, will give you that oil-like sensation. However, using one layer of it is nice. It's super watery. It has a good INCI, containing some plant extracts and even copper tripeptide. Smells like fresh mashed leaves but it contains synthetic fragrance. I'll review them better soon! Have you tried Purito or HANYUL? Gift. #abcommunity Português⤵️ . Primeiras impressões sobre esses produtos que recebi da @eopenmarket. Eles me ofereceram um cupom na loja e eu usei-o para pegar o HANYUL Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Toner e dois pares de meia esfoliante que eu e meu marido usaremos mais tarde. Eles também me enviaram um produto @purito_official aleatório. Eu estava esperando que fosse o serum de vitamina C, mas recebi o Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream, um creme com textura de pudim com 70% de extrato de espinheiro do mar, óleo de casca de laranja, 4% de óleo de macadâmia, niacinamida, ácido hialurônico e outros extratos. O creme tem um ótimo INCI para aqueles que preferem produtos mais naturais. Além disso, não tem muitos "fillers". Cheira a laranja fresca e não contém fragrância sintética. Absorve bem e deixa minha pele cheinha, hidratada e nutrida. Estou gostando até agora! Continua no segundo comentário.

It’s loaded with antioxidants, including vitamins C (which exceed the amounts of lemons and oranges) and Ecarotenes. Sea buckthorn has anti-microbial, antioxidant, tissue regenerationcytoprotective properties.

Niacinamide: An effective skin lightening compound that works by inhibiting melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes. It improves the stratum corneum barrier, decreases transepidermal water loss (TEWL), stimulates new collagen synthesis, up-regulates epidermal ceramide synthesis, reduces skin hyperpigmentation, regulates the sebum production. Niacinamide has also been shown to provide potent anti-inflammatory activity in the treatment of acne vulgaris. It also exerts multiple benefits on the appearance of aging/photodamaged skin (improves skin texture, hyperpigmentation) and demonstrates excellent skin compatibility.

A 10% ethanolic extract of the aerial parts (dried leaves and stem) showed significant anti-inflammatory and analgesic after intraperitoneal and topical. Other study showed the antioxidant properties of different cultivars of Portulaca oleracea and reported that they were capable of inhibiting lipid peroxidation.

Packaging

It seems like the packaging is made out of recycled plastic.

lrm_export_20180209_0931402138485514.jpg

It’s not a pump container but at least it’s a tube. It’s way easier to use and more sanitary than those creams that come in a jar.

There is also this illustration inside the box. I don’t read Korean but it seems that the queen was envious of Snow White’s skin and asked the mirror what she uses, and the mirror responded saying that her secret is this cream.

Texture and perfume

The texture is like a pudding. Very soft and light. Not thick, more on the gel-cream side.

img_20180209_0933240381830642211.jpg

It’s a fragrance-free product but it has some fruit extracts and oils that give it a super nice scent. It smells like fresh oranges.

How to use

Apply it before sunscreen. Can also be used on the body.

Performance

If I were a spa owner, I’d totally provide this cream to the visitors! It smells so good. The scent wakes you up and it’s great to use during that day when you wake up so early.

It’s very hydrating but not oily. Absorbs well and gives you that nice healthy skin look.

When I pair this cream with my hydrating sunscreen (A’PIEU Pure Block Aqua Sun Gel) it’s hydrating enough even when it’s -20ºC (-4ºF) outside.

Hydration test using Susee Nano Spray Machine

Let’s do some hydration tests.

  • Before applying the product: 48.5% of water and 32.4% of oil.
  • After applying the product: 63.3% of water and 19.8% of oil.

 

Final thoughts

Sea buckthorn, macadamia oil, niacinamide, Portulaca oleracea, hyaluronic acid, adenosine, panthenol, arginine… all the good stuff.

An (affordable) lightweight hydrating cream with antioxidant properties, and other ingredients that might help decreasing hyperpigmentation. One of its greatest points is the price. Eopenmarket has the most affordable price in my opinion. It’s currently being sold for 13 dollars and no doubt it’s a very good price for a well-formulated product.
