Review: Purito Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ PA++++

I bought Purito Centella Green Level Unscented Sun sunscreen because at the time I couldn't order on Ebay my usual Asian sunscreens, so I over payed for this one. It's one of those popular Asian sunscreens and I was mostly intrigued by centella asiatica extract in it. Although, it turns out it's not my favorite in terms of texture.


It comes in a white plastic tube. Opening is small enough so you can control the amount of product you want.

In it is 60 ml of product and I got it for 22€ on Notino. I was desperate to get some sunscreen and couldn't order on Ebay at the time.


It's a white cream which has good spreadability and slip to it. As you massage it in, it becomes transparent looking and doesn't leave white cast, but if you use recommended amount you will need to massage it in for a bit of time to disappear. It leaves dewy finish on the skin. 

This is sunscreen with chemical filters and has high protection of SPF50+ or PA++++. In the ingredients there are also glycerin, niacinamide and centella asiatica which is known for its healing properties. 

It's unscented which I love.


Compared to some other Asian sunscreens, this is definitely heavier on the skin and leaves quite a lot of shine on it. Dry skin will like it, but oily skin will hate it. I have combination skin and this is more for those colder days when my skin needs more moisture, I wouldn't use this in the summer. It makes my skin look greasy in hot weather. 

It definitely doesn't leave any white cast and feels soothing on the skin. I never experienced any irritation and it's formulated without essential oils and fragrance plus centella asiatica acts as another calming ingredient, so it would be for sensitive skin as well.

It wears well under makeup, but on my combination skin it tends to make my skin look greasy faster than if I use more lightweight sunscreens.

I can't say it's bad, it's just not as lightweight as some other Asian sunscreens that I have tried before. I think this one will be better suited for dry and sensitive skin, even though it has chemical filters which may be irritating to some. It manages to sink in good, but leaves dewy finish. I'm not sure why it's so popular, because I always think of chemical Asian sunscreens as very lightweight with a more velvet finish and this one feels much more nourishing like a physical sunscreen, though it's still better formula than most European sunscreens.
