Here’s my update on the Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel! =)

I stopped using the Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel for a while now. It didn’t work out for me. It felt like a gentle face wash at first, but it started to sting my eyes and skin. It didn’t do anything to brighten my complexion. Nothing for my acne. It didn’t leave my skin feeling clean either. I went through a couple of facial cleansers after discontinuing the Brightening Cleansing Gel. I started to use Derma E Hydrating Gentle Facial Cleanser for some time. I’m currently using a mix of the Derma E and Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Face Wash. My skin feels clean, so it’s working well. I think I’m going to switch over to the Tea Tree Face Wash once I finish the Derma E. Even if acne creams/gels dry out my skin, I still have oily skin underneath the surface. That’s just my skin type. The Tea Tree Face Wash has always worked in the end. I think I’m done searching. Hmmmm, lol. I don’t recommend the Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel. I’m really not impressed. Don’t waste your money.

I’ve been testing out sunblocks. This is one of them. The Purito Comfy Water Sun Block. Read on! 😀

About Purito Comfy Water Sun Block:

Review:

I’ve been using Purito Comfy Water Sun Block on and off to see if I like it or not. The texture of the sunblock cream is very nice and pleasant. It feels gentle on the skin. Definitely a good choice for sensitive skin. I prefer sunblocks that are made for sensitive skin because I have issues finding a good sunblock that isn’t irritating or drying. And the majority of sunblocks I have used have been too irritating and drying (at the same time), which isn’t a good combo. This sunblock in particular wasn’t too drying. It didn’t drench my skin in moisture though. A little bit of moisture is better than none.

So this sunblock contains zinc, zinc-based sunblocks tend to leave a white cast on the face. This sunblock does leave a subtle white cast on the skin. Not too bad. I did quite a bit of research on it before purchasing it. I’m curious about how much zinc or protection it gives. 🤔 Maybe not a lot because all of the zinc-based sunblocks I have used left a noticeable white cast on my face. In saying that, I do think some protection is better than nothing. I try my best to wear sunblock even though my skin doesn’t like it.

The good: Nice texture, consistency, gives the skin some moisture, and doesn’t irritate the skin compared to other sunblocks I have used. Also, it doesn’t feel thick and heavy on the skin. 👍🏻 The bad: Unsure about how much protection it gives. And a few other things I would like to mention…

It takes time for the sunblock to absorb into the skin. This is a negative when it comes to mornings when I don’t have time to let it fully absorb into the skin. You’re probably thinking, shouldn’t we wait for the product to fully absorb into the skin? The thing is, I’ve used several other sunblocks without having to wait for it to fully absorb but just enough without any issues. With that in mind, what happens when this sunblock doesn’t fully absorb into the skin is that it rubs off of the skin. Honestly, I’m on the fence about this sunblock. I like it, but I don’t like how it takes forever to absorb into the skin plus the pilling. Sometimes, on days when I have time to let the sunblock absorb, it still rolls off of my face, especially when I wear makeup. I’m going to use the rest of the sunblock to see if it works for me or not. Test it out a little more. I’ll give it some time and come back with another update.

To be continued… 🙂
