Hands up if you are a toner addict like me! I simply love toners, no matter whether they are runny like water or thicker and essence like. Today’s review is about the Purito Centella Green Level Calming Toner! If you love the thicker toners I have a special recommendation for you here, that may be a competitor to my beloved Klairs Supple Preparation Toner:
Purito is a rather young Korean brand with cruelty-free and 10-free skincare products. The products are free from paraben, ethanol, surfactants, artificial coloring, fragrance, triethanolamine, phthalein, triclosan, petrochemicals, and benzoyl peroxide. Moreover, the products gain a lot of popularity these days because of their short and yet effective ingredients list. Moreover, they are very affordable compared to other brands using similar ingredients. I have reviewed a couple of their products before: the Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum and the Purito Snail Repair Advanced 91 Serum and my beloved Purito Centella Green Level All In One Mild Pads, for example. I was absolutely in love with the Purito Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream, too!
The origin of the brand name and their motto is stated on the brand site:
“PURITO is a combined word of “Purify” and “To”
(comes from a Chinese character, 土 meaning “Soil”).
“Purify” means to purify their natural ingredients to create safe and clean products.
“To” means to go back to basics to strengthen and repair collapsed skin barriers.
Back to the Basics. Just like a healthy root grows a healthy tree, health is
the root of glowing skin. Dramatic short-term results are exciting, but they don’t last.
With PURITO you will enjoy life-long healthy skin”
The Purito Centella Green Level Calming Toner is a calming and soothing toner containing Centella Asiatica and hyaluronic acid for an extra boost of moisture. The toner has a mild acidity of pH5.5 and is perfect for use after cleansing your skin and balancing it. The toner is not a watery toner, but a jelly-like essence toner. It comes in a green-colored bottle containing 200ml.
Water,Centella Asiatica Extract,Butylene Glycol,Pentylene Glycol,Dipropylene Glycol,1,2-Hexanediol,Sodium Hyaluronate,Panthenol,Portulaca Oleracea Extract,Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract,Glycerin,Allantoin,Trehalose,Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate,Carbomer,Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate,Arginine,Ethylhexylglycerin,Disodium EDTA,Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil,Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil,Cananga Odorata Flower Oil,Rose Flower Oil
All the ingredients are EWG safe and you can also check the ingredients via Skincarisma. Apart from the key ingredient Centella Asiatica, other noteworthy ingredients are panthenol, hyaluronic acid, butylene glycol, and glycerin. They are all great moisturizing ingredients. Witch Hazel Extract and Allantoin help with soothing the skin.
The key ingredient Centella Asiatica Extract makes 10% of the total ingredients. Centella Asiatica extracts have been used in traditional medicine and are still used today, having beneficial properties like wound-healing. Scientific studies have shown that continuous application of the extract can promote collagen-building, act anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidative. The purified extract of Centella Asiatica is called TECA. It is a standardized extract composed of Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid and Madecassic acid. It is used in skincare targeting wound-healing, scarred skin, sensitive skin, but also seems to be effective on cellulite.
I especially enjoyed the thicker texture of the Purito Centella Green Level Calming Toner. It takes some time to absorb, because it is not like water, and also doesn’t contain alcohol. But once it absorbs after some pats, it will leave your skin refreshed and calmed and kind of bouncy It can also be used for layering, for an especially rich feeling and more hydration, and I used it often for 7-skin technique. This toner was my favorite, when I felt my skin was stressed, or when using exfoliating skincare products during the night, like chemical exfoliators containing AHA/BHA/PHA. While using it, I never experienced any irritations caused by the product.
As you see in the pictures above, the bottle comes in a cardboard box in the typical Purito design. What I love most about the brand are their Cartoons inside the cardboard boxes (Puritoons). These cute cartoons give you information or tips on how to use the products. This cartoon will show you the basic use of the toner first. Apart from this, you can also use it to soak cotton pads or compressed sheet masks with the toner and use them for masking. Moreover, the toner can be used to repair broken eyeshadows or compressed powders/blushes. Last, but not least, you can create your own mist, by mixing the toner together with a few drops of your favorite facial oil. I really love this idea of these skincare cartoons!
All in all, I’m very happy with the Purito Centella Green Level Calming Toner and definitely recommend to check it out. It ranks among my favorite calming and thicker textured toners, and if you love Centella Asiatica as a key ingredient, you need to check it out!
