|REVIEW| Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream


AROUND THE EYES
This is my first review on a product to be used around the eyes, and I'm giving this first to Purito's Centella Green Level Eye Cream. Despite that, this is not the first eye cream I've tried. So far, I've tried The Body Shop's Moisture White Shiso 2-in-1 Brightening Eye Cream, Mizon's Snail Repair Eye Cream (USD13.60, approx. RM54), Innisfree Green Tea Seed Eye Cream (USD21.90, approx. RM86) and Swissvita Micrite 3D All Use Eye Cream (RM104.94).

WHAT'S SO SPECIAL?
So, what's so special about this Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream that I want to give my first eye cream review to it? 49% of Centella Asiatica. Yes, you heard me right, 49%, in an eye cream, which is the same percentage of Centella in the Centella Green Level Buffet Serum.

Ingredient list and directions in Korean

YAS, THE GOOD ONES
Mainly found in shady and damp areas in many different parts of the world, Centella (a.k.a. tiger grass because wounded tigers were often seen rolling in it to heal their wounds) is a small plant that grows up to around six inches in height. Also called the “miracle elixirs of life”, researchers have found that Centella Asiatica Extract, Asiaticoside and Asiatic Acid facilitate the healing of cuts and burns as it can promote collagen production and inhibit inflammation which results in scarring.

Glycerin can help keep the skin hydrated and keep the overactive oil glands under control. Butylene GlycolPanthenolSodium Hyaluronate and Hydrolysed Collagen are all powerful moisturisers, which are all great for skin moisture replenishment and retention. Not just that, having Ceramide Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil and Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil also makes this eye cream even more moisturising on the eyes. This sounds like a potential life saver for those with dry skin!

The ingredient list in English.

YAS, THE GOOD ONES (contd.)
Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract is a rich source of epigallocatechin gallate, which is one of the most powerful antioxidants available. Moreover, Green Tea Extract is a good anti-inflammatory agent. It can help reduce skin inflammation (go away acnes!) and inhibit the action of collagenase (an enzyme that breaks down collagen).

Besides, both Ceramide and Adenosine are also great anti-wrinkle ingredients, especially Adenosine. It is capable of boosting the levels of proteins such as collagen and elastin, thereby being able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and promote wound healing. Oh boy, I need this for my under-eye area! According to Wishtrend, adenosine can also effectively improve acne caused by oily skin!

Promotes Wound Healing: Panthenol & Centella Asiatica Extract
Anti-Aging: Adenosine, Collagen & Ceramide
Brightening: Acetyl Glucosamine

Note: This is free of paraben, sulphate and alcohol.

NAH, THE BAD ONES
If you have oily skin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter and Stearic Acid can potentially clog pores as they have a comedogenic rating of 3.

For sensitive skin beauty lovers, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil may potentially irritate your skin if it is at a concentration too high. However, seeing that its position in the ingredient list above is quite low, indicating that its concentration here is not too high, so I don't think it should be causing you to have any concern. I would still recommend patch testing (I always do) before applying it to your whole face.

p.s. Concentration of an ingredient is normally indicated by its position in the ingredient list. More highly positioned equals to more highly concentrated.

The cream is white in colour.

SO MOISTURISING
After looking at the list closely, it seems like the ingredients in this eye cream have only one main target, i.e. to replenish the moisture in our skin around our eyes. It contains way more moisturising ingredients than I've ever seen in any other moisturiser I've tried and that intrigues me. Why? Why does it need to be so special with all these intensively hydrating ingredients? Why is it so special?

I KNOW WHY
The skin around our eyes is very delicate and vulnerable, way more than the other parts of our body. It is also where the first sign of ageing will show, through the one most hated byproduct of ageing, i.e. wrinkles. That can easily give away my age, I don't want that! That's why I want to start early by carefully taking care of my skin. You now know why I'm so obsessed with skincare and would even go to the extent of creating this blog to share my reviews haha!

Eye cream, anyone? Here's how my eye areas look with the help of sunlight. I seriously can't go to work without concealer nowadays haha.

MY WORK DOESN'T HELP
Personally, I have to deal with dark eye circles that accompany the nature of my job. I need eye creams to help keep the fine lines hidden and my tiredness concealed. Which is also why I've not settled on just one eye cream because I am still on the quest to find the one best eye cream that fits my needs. The eye cream that I look for must have at least the ability to deeply moisturise, brighten and sit well under my concealer.

Only around the eye sockets, not nearer.

TWO OF THE THREE
This Purito Eye Cream has the ability to give my eye area an intensive moisture boost. I like wearing it to sleep because I know that it would help feed the thirsty cells around my eyes. I wouldn't really say that it removed my fine lines but I believe that they do look less prominent whenever I properly moisturise my eye areas with this Centella Green Level Eye Cream. This one simple skincare step has also managed to *brighten up my eye areas, making me look more awake despite being sleep deprived.

*NOTE: It brightens up, not whitens, my eye area. By relying on SkinCarisma and my own experience with products I've reviewed and tried (which is limited LOL), I haven't noted any whitening ingredient in this eye cream.

purito eye cream review
Ring (fourth) finger, with the slightest force, massaging my eye area in circular motion.

NOT EXACTLY FOR THE DAY
Two of the three, which criterion did it not meet? Did you notice I said that I only like wearing it to sleep? HAHA Because of how moisturising it is, it doesn't sit that well under my concealer. I'm also rather generous when it comes to putting on eye cream, and that doesn't help either 😂. My concealer would crease more than usual and budge more easily. Hence, I tend to avoid using this Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream whenever I have to put on concealer.

HOW TO APPLY
I always use my ring fingers when it comes to applying eye cream. They are the weakest fingers of all hence would not place extra stress on the delicate eye area when massaging the eye cream in. It's important to not go too close to the eyes when applying eye cream. The rule of thumb is to go along the eye socket and no further in than that. Massage in circular motion along the eye socket, placing minimal force on it. I personally find this useful in improving the blood circulation around my eyes.

It's obvious that the side with eye cream is very moisturised, much brighter and looks a little more lifted than the side without.

MORE HAVE TO KNOW
Purito's products have such amazing ingredients that this whole Centella Green Level Line is safe to be used on all skin types, especially for sensitive skin peeps! This eye cream doesn't have a heavy smell and although the cream is white in colour, it dries down to a non-sticky transparent glow on the eye area.  Its lightweight texture also makes it easily absorbable by the skin and great to use as a massage cream for the eye. What else is there to say? You need to try it!
