I gave Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream a second chance. It’s a cheap bb cream. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, and I remember liking the texture, coverage of this bb cream. It made my skin look dewy, glowy, and smoother. Overall, it made my skin look prettier. The effect it had on my skin was so nice. So I have the shade in Light Beige (#21). They only have 3 shades to choose from, which is pretty awful. Not just that. Shade #21 has dark, dull, greyish undertones to it that I was OK with at first since I thought it didn’t break me out (more on this soon!). I prioritize a product not breaking me out over anything else if it’s decent, but the color of this bb cream started to settle in as weeks past by. I didn’t like the way it looked on my skin. It made my skin appear more dull and lifeless. It took that spark out of my skin. And I didn’t enjoy using this bb cream even though it made my skin look pretty in texture. It smooths out the skin. Oh that dewy skin is so amazing, lol. But pretty, dewy skin wasn’t enough for me to continue to use it. I needed a bb cream that matches my skin color. Also, a bb cream that brings out the beauty of my skin. This didn’t do it for my skin. Keep reading, there’s more to it…
The bb cream feels soft and creamy, which I loved. The texture is so silky to touch. Unfortunately, it feels rather thick on the skin. As time went on, I started to dislike how thick and heavy it felt on my skin, especially when I was using it on a daily basis. I can’t imagine putting something like this on my skin forever. It just felt really gross on my skin. It felt and looked cakey and unnatural. I love that it smooths out fine lines and wrinkles due to the silkiness of the product, but it was just too darn thick and heavy on my skin. Makeup is supposed to look at least somewhat natural (and good) on the skin. This felt like a blob of goop on my face. It didn’t matter how much I used either. The bb cream was too thick. Also, even though it’s thick in texture, it didn’t provide that much coverage. Medium at best but I could still see through the makeup. Since I have some acne scars (waiting to fade), I can still see them. Same with freckles. It doesn’t bother me if it covers my freckles or not, but I’m just giving an example that it doesn’t provide that much coverage. This bb cream has the tendency to transfer onto fabrics too. It comes off very easily and smudges. It doesn’t stick to the skin well and isn’t long-lasting.
Lastly, this bb cream broke me out. I didn’t think it was breaking me out at first until I stopped using it for a week. I noticed less breakouts. That says a lot. Some of my clogged pores disappeared, and my skin appeared clearer. I tried using it again for a day, bam! I started to get random clogged pores out of the blue in a single day. One. Single. Day! Perhaps this bb cream is too thick and heavy on my skin that it suffocates my pores and irritates it. All I know is that my skin started to develop acne again. My pores looked like a huge mess. It was filled with gunk that wasn’t there before. Ever since I noticed this, I haven’t touched this bb cream since. Honestly, I don’t seem to miss it either. My skin looks way better without it. So! That’s all there is to it. No more Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream, lol. At least it wasn’t too expensive. I’m not putting this bb cream down. It may work for others, but it didn’t work for me. It’s time for me to move on to something that’s better for my skin. This isn’t it. And I really wanted it to work due to how affordable it is.
