Oh, I’ve missed doing these videos! Here’s a “too close to comfort” review of Purito Cica Clearing BB Cream.
Things you may want to know:
I have combination skin, going through a more oily phase; over 40, so with wrinkles; acne-prone since I was 12, with breakouts and hyperpigmentation which I tend to prefer to cover;
you can buy this product from Yesstyle (it takes a while to ship, if you know of a European retailer that can ship this faster, let us all know!);
it’s (at this time) 10,60€ for 30ml;
it’s a light to medium coverage foundation, feels like a cream, leaves a luminous to dewy look on the skin, evens out and visually smoothes texture;
terrible shade range – 27 (the shade I’m wearing) is the darkest colour;
claims to contain moisturising “Cica” extracts to strengthen the skin barrier– it does contain Niacinamide, Panthenol and Centella Asiatica, among other lesser-known ingredients that help with skin barrier and soothing the skin, as well as classic emollient, humectant and moisturising agents, and a cocktail of UV filters (the US website claims SPF 38 PA+++).
Some people had huge artistic impulses and took the added time some of us had to play with make up with the freedom of a kid with watercolours. Sadly, it was not my case. Nonetheless, I still found som great gems that became staples in my make up routine, and that let me feel I wasn’t totally falling into a rut.
So many amazing products on the market, these were the ones I trusted my almost 40 acne-prone combination skin during the year. Of course I experimented around and there are some others out of this list that I truly rate, but I had to cut somewhere or this video would be 10 hours long.
on a daily basis, for winter I love to wear either a simple glossy/balmy lip or a bold matte lipstick. on my quite full days, a liquid lipstick wouldn’t last me looking as neat as I need it for that many hours, and also they tend to dry my lips out quite a lot, so I tend to resort to simple matte lipsticks regularly (and leave the liquid lips for nights out or shorter periods of time).
matte lipsticks (at least the ones I mention) don’t dry my lips out, don’t look parched, feel super comfortable for a lot longer, don’t bleed on my fine lines, and are super easy to reapply. their downside is that they transfer. they can be used as blushers (no more fiddling around with matching powders), and if you don’t like the slight hint of sheen they still have, all you have to do is blot.
