Update on Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum & The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%!!
It’s decided. I stopped using Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum and The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%. I’m really trying to eliminate skin care products that don’t provide my skin with many benefits and are oily. The two products in my routine — Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum and The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid fell into those categories. Here’s why.
Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum:
I’ve gone through several bottles of Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum. I still have a few more of the serum, lol. This serum is a lightweight watery gel that absorbs into the skin well. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky or heavy. It just sinks into the skin wonderfully. I never had any issues with the serum. That’s why I’ve used it for so long. This serum contains 49% Centella Asiatica Extract, Niacinamide, Arginine, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Green Tea Extract, Ceramide NP, Sodium Hyaluronate, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid. At the end of the ingredient list, some peptides. The ingredients look amazing. Also, it didn’t clog my pores either. It worked very well on my acne-prone skin. Not a single zit in sight. I was able to use it twice a day without any issues. It helped to calm redness and irritated skin while providing lightweight hydration. Unfortunately, the hydration doesn’t last long so don’t expect a surge of moisture from this serum. It’s a great serum for sensitive skin! BUT, even if the serum has really nice ingredients, I didn’t see much of a change or a huge difference in my skin. It didn’t help to improve skin texture and blemishes like it claims. It’s a pretty basic product that I don’t need, since I have a better moisturizer already. I was using the Purito Buffet Serum because it at least hydrates the skin just a little bit. Maybe I’ll use it again in the near future, but for now, I’m going to stop using it and see what happens.
The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%:
I’ve been eliminating The Ordinary products one by one. The last two were The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10% and The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2%. The next one is going to be The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%. I really wanted this serum to work. It’s supposed to help with signs of aging and skin texture. It contains antioxidants. But I’ve been trying to make this serum work for months to no avail. The serum feels very oily and greasy on the skin. The texture of this serum is very similar to the Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2%. One of the reasons why I stopped using the Ascorbic Acid serum. After I stopped using both Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2% and Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%, my skin stopped looking oily and greasy. These serums could’ve been breaking me out too. It just makes my skin appear more shiny and feels heavy on the skin. For me, the overall formulation of the serum is poor. It sits on top of the skin and doesn’t really absorb into the skin. As for the results when using this serum, since the texture of the serum is oily, it moisturizes the skin and makes the skin look kind of glowy. That’s most likely due to the oiliness of the serum and not that it contains antioxidants. The Ascorbic Acid serums has the same effect on the skin too due to the oiliness. Once I wash my face at the end of the day, I could see very little changes in my skin. I find it only moisturizing. I’ve been using this serum for months. I think it’s been nearly a year, and I don’t think it’s working for me. I was expecting more from this product.
