It’s time for an update on Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream! If you missed out on my previous review, don’t forget to check it out! Click here! 👈🏻
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 From Green Cleansing Oil
I finally finished my bottle of iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil and started another cleansing oil. I’ve had this one for a while. I’ve just placed it in the corner until I’m ready to use it again. Since I’m done with iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil, I’m ready to try it out again! The cleansing oil I’m using now is Purito From Green Cleansing Oil. Since my skin is at its vulnerable state, I have to be extremely gentle and baby my skin. I thought this cleansing oil would be a really good choice, since it’s olive oil based. From what I remember, it’s a thicker, richer cleansing oil. And that’s something my skin really needs at the moment. Just slathering a bunch of heavy, rich, ultra-moisturizing products on my face for the time being until my skin heals. So the purpose of this cleansing oil is to remove heavy, oily makeup and sunscreen. It helps to break down makeup, impurities, sebum deep within the pores. That sounds perfect! I’ve had this cleansing oil for months, but I’ve only been using it for less than a week. Here are my thoughts on this cleansing oil so far! I hope this is helpful! Read on! 😊
This cleansing oil comes out thick, heavy, and rich. Just like how I remember it. It’s olive oil based. The first ingredient in this product is Olive Fruit Oil. The product is green in color. Just like the packaging. It comes in a 200 mL bottle. It’s not a super affordable cleansing oil compared to the other ones I’ve used. But, let’s try it out anyways since I have it. I take 1-2 pumps of this cleansing oil and apply it to my skin. Since it’s thicker in consistency, it makes it difficult to move it across the face. Sometimes I add a pump of my own oil (not a cleansing oil), so the product glides across my skin much easier and smoother. I’m currently using organic hemp oil. 👈🏻 Read more about it here!
When applied to the skin, it feels thick in texture and consistency. Since my skin is in need of products that are heavy and super moisturizing. This fits the bill. It feels very moisturizing on the skin while cleansing the skin, but it doesn’t do a good job at removing makeup, especially my eye makeup (mascara, water-proof eyeliner). I haven’t found a cleansing oil that works at removing makeup very well yet. After rinsing the cleansing oil off of the skin, it does leave a creamy, white residue behind on the skin. I don’t recommend using this cleansing oil alone to cleanse the skin, especially if you have skin that’s prone to breakouts. I recommend following up with a facial cleanser. That’s what I do every time. Make sure I remove every single trace of the cleansing oil off of my facial skin to prevent breakouts from happening.
So this cleansing oil does contain other ingredients too, such as sunflower seed oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and grapeseed oil. It also contains surfactants to help aid the removal of oils when rinsing the cleansing oil off of the facial skin. The only ingredient in this product I’m afraid of is caprylic/capric triglyceride. As someone with breakout-prone skin, I avoid this ingredient majority of the time unless the product works for me. So far, it’s been a terrible ingredient for my skin type. But, fortunately, this is a cleansing oil, and it’s not left on my skin for very long. It gets rinsed off after gently massaging it into my skin to remove makeup, debris, sebum, and sunscreen. I haven’t had any issues as of yet. So far, it’s working for me. And I love the fact that it doesn’t irritate my skin and feels so darn moisturizing, especially when my skin needs to heal.
Pros & Cons
- Very moisturizing
- Contains olive, oil, almond oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil
- Gentle enough for every day use
- Essential-oil free
- Doesn’t remove eye makeup properly
I really liked Purito From Green Cleansing Oil. It contains oils that work on my skin, such as olive oil (love this one!), almond oil (a bit on the thicker side but doesn’t irritate my skin), sunflower oil, jojoba oil, and grapeseed oil. It does contain caprylic/capric triglyceride, which is coconut-derived, so I don’t know if this is the cleansing oil for me in the long run. But, so far, everything has been going well besides it not being able to remove my eye makeup completely. I need to use another oil to help with that. With this cleansing oil, I haven’t had any breakouts from it yet. I hope I don’t get any breakouts. Since my skin needs a lot of nourishment and conditioning, this cleansing oil is working very well on my skin. It moisturizes, conditions, and feels very soothing on the skin while my skin heals. After this experience, it’s not so bad as I thought it was! This one could work well for the cooler, colder months. But I’m not sure if I’ll pick up another bottle when I finish it, since it’s a little pricey for the amount of product. Right now, it’s good, it works. I wish it was more affordable. I still think my organic hemp oil works better, and it’s less expensive. I think I’m going to stick with that.
