Review: Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream
I’ve used Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream before, but I thought I would give it another chance. It’s been difficult trying to find a bb cream that works on my acne-prone skin since my has been HG bb cream failed on me (Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange). Check out my review on this bb cream. 🙂 I’ve only used Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream for less than a week, but I think I can do a first impression on it. Here are my thoughts on this bb cream. I hope this review is helpful.
The first time I stumbled upon Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream. I was really excited for it. It’s a vegan and cruelty-free bb cream. They’re hard to come by. This was it. This bb cream offers only 3 shades. They are Light Beige (#21), Natural Beige (#23), and Sand Beige (#27). I chose the lightest shade, which is Light Beige (#21). I wish there were more choices, since I thought the options were very limited. But anyways, when I dispensed the product out of the tube, I noticed that Light Beige was really dark. It looked like it would be too dark on my complexion. It was a brownish-tan with greyish undertones. I had to double check the packaging to see if I was sent the right shade. And yes, it was indeed Light Beige (#21) that I have.
I tried the bb cream on my skin. The texture of this bb cream is thick, soft, and creamy. I really liked the consistency of this bb cream. It feels really nice. It smooths and blends very easily into the skin. It’s really easy to target areas on the face with this bb cream. If I have a troubled area, I can pat some of this bb cream for extra coverage or to smooth out the area to make it look less noticeable. Even though it feels thick in texture, that doesn’t mean it feels heavy on the skin. This bb cream feels lightweight on the skin. It doesn’t feel like I have anything on at all. Not only that, it left my skin feeling moisturized. It didn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles (especially the eye area) as much compared to other bb creams I have used before. This bb cream works perfectly underneath my eyes. It gets bonus points from me for that.
As for breakouts, I used this before, and I didn’t get breakouts from it. I didn’t get breakouts from it this time around either. In conclusion, this bb cream doesn’t clog my pores! Well, as I know of. I haven’t seen any new bumps while using it. No skin irritations. It calms and soothes my skin while leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturized. The coverage is pretty good too. It’s medium but buildable. It doesn’t make the skin look cakey. Looks very natural on the skin. The smoothing effect of this bb cream is amazing. It leaves my skin looking glowy and dewy. The one thing I didn’t like about this bb cream (why I stopped using it the first time) is that it is a tad dark on my skin. Also, it has greyish undertones. By the way, this bb cream looks way darker when dispensed from the tube vs on the face. Since it didn’t break me out, that doesn’t bother me that much. This bb cream also contains SPF 38 PA+++, but it doesn’t say it on the box.
The bb cream is sealed upon using. I love products like these.
Here’s a swatch of the bb cream. Light Beige (#21). It definitely looks darker on my skin. But, it’s not this dark on my face. Blends into the skin tone. The greyish undertones dulls out the skin a bit though. I wish they had more shade options to choose from. This one was a little bit dark on me, but I don’t think it’s too noticeable. It’s wearable.

My second experience with Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream was actually good. This bb cream is working for me! The texture, thickness of the cream (but feels lightweight on the skin), the coverage, and how it smooths out my skin has been wonderful. Making my skin look youthful and dewy. Once again, I wish they had more shade options, and I wish the bb cream didn’t have grey undertones to it. It makes the skin look a bit dull. And yep, you’ve guessed it grey. lol. Otherwise, this bb cream didn’t cause my skin to break out in acne. Also, I love the fact that it is vegan and cruelty-free. This is something worth checking out if you’re searching for a good bb cream. It’s very affordable too. Highly recommended!
