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.

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.
Pros & Cons
- Gentle on the skin
- Natural looking
- Medium coverage, buildable
- Leaves the skin soft, glowy, and dewy
- Feels lightweight on the skin even though it’s thick in texture.
- Contains SPF 38 PA+++ (Titanium Dioxide, Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl salicylate, Zinc Oxide)
- Greyish undertones
- Limited shade choices
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!
