Purito Centella Unscented Recovery Cream – What to expect ?


  In my last post, I reviewed the Purito Centella unscented Toner and for today review post, I have the moisturizer from the same range, the Purito Centella unscented recovery cream. Formulation-wise and claim-wise, this cream looks really interesting, so read along to know my thoughts on it.

Ingredients List:

Purito Centella Unscented Recovery Cream

Purito Centella unscented recovery cream has all skin calming and barrier repairing ingredients:

  • Centella Asiatica Extract(50%): So far highest within all the Purito Centella products. My favourite ingredient to soothe, calm & heal skin and one really cannot go wrong with this.
  • Niacinamide (2%): Helps in reducing sebum in the skin, reduces redness and also reduces breakouts. 2% strength is well tolerated by all skin types.
  • Macadamia Seed Oil, Squalane, Shea Butter Extract & Argan Nut Oil: Fatty acid source and keep skin moisturized.
  • Ceramide NP: Much needed for repairing skin barrier along with various fatty acids.
  • Witch Hazel: Now this ingredient can be hit & miss for many. Here is why, Witch hazel helps in keeping pores clean, reduce sebum in the skin, tighten pores, and calms acne, which is perfect for Oily & Combination skin, but can be irritating or drying on sensitive or dry skin respectively. Also, it’s worth noting that if the formula is well made and your skin is not pesky about witch hazel you shouldn’t be worrying about it.
  • Mushroom Extract: Calm skin & help in reducing breakouts.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate: Humectant, so it will help in keeping skin soft and well hydrated.
  • Asiaticoside: Centella derivative which heals skin, improves skin barrier, boosts elasticity in the skin, and of course, calms skin.
  • Asiatic acid: Centella Asiatica derivative that calms skin and has anti-ageing benefits for the skin.
  • Tocopherol: Vitamin E derivative helps in fighting free radical damage.
  • Madecassic acid: Centella Asiatica derivative that calms skin, heals skin & helps in fading Red-Pink Acne spots through skin regeneration.

  • Oily Skin: May use it in the Northern dry winter season only.

Conclusion:

Purito Centella unscented Recovery cream is my favourite of all of their moisturizer. I prefer & love it over the Original Version. This Essential oil version is sufficiently moisturizing for my dry, sensitive & acne-prone skin.

 

 

Pros:

  1. Within the Brand Purito, it has the highest concentration of Centella Asiatica Extract (50%).
  2. It helps in reducing the inflammation that comes along with acne.
  3. I find it sufficiently moisturizing for my dry skin.
  4. 100% fragrance-free.
  5. The cream is 100% essential oil-free.
  6. It is Cruelty-Free.
  7. Vegan friendly.
  8. Clean Beauty Product.
  9. Helped in fading superficial red acne marks, not sure how far it’s going to be effective on deep PIE, but works on light ones.

 

Cons:

  1. Not that effective on severe acne.
  2. Not fungal acne safe.
It is to be noted that Fatty acids are amazing for the skin and are much needed for repairing the damaged skin barriers but if you have severe fungal acne issues, stay away from ingredients like carrier oils.
