Skincare | Purlisse

Purlisse skincare review

Just before I left for Canada, a generous skincare package arrived for me from the lovely people at Purlisse. Having read some rave reviews by some of my favourite bloggers on the brand, I had no doubts I would enjoy the products and I have been proved right!

Purlisse was founded by former actress Jennifer Yen (she was in Power Rangers dontcha know) as heavy makeup and bright lights affected her complexion. She created Purlisse – a combination of Asian wisdom and modern philosophy as well as partnering with chemists in France, Korea, America and beyond to perfect the skincare line.

Most of the range I have here is from the Blue Lotus range - Blue Lotus is a powerful antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. All products here are also free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, synthetic colour/fragrance and animal cruelty! I’ve been using the range for well over a month now so here are my thoughts!

This cleansing milk promises to gently cleanse the skin, remove makeup, tone and soothe
It’s infused with Soy Milk, Whole Oat and White Tea to gently wash away dirt, impurities and makeup in one simple step. It’s a soothing multi tasker that leaves skin pure and clean without stripping it of its natural oils and is suitable for all skin types. As well as blue lotus, the cleanser also contains White Tea which helps rejuvenate skin, Soy Milk which is rich in amino acids and maintains skin elasticity and whole oat to calm and soothe sensitive skin. I absolutely love how gentle this is. I do prefer it as a morning cleanse rather than a makeup removing second/evening cleanser as I prefer something more balmy or oily and this is a runny milk. It doesn’t strip my skin at all and leaves it clean and ready for the next step in my routine. It also comes in a huge tube and a little goes a long way!

This promises to brighten and even skin tone while also reducing dark spots and is suitable for all skin types including sensitive. Again, as well as containing blue lotus, it’s also made up of Lupine peptides to improve radiance and promote a youthful glow, Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin to brighten and even skin tone, Neem and prune extracts to fade away dark spots and Avocado oil and natural squalene to nurture sensitive skin. It’s really lightweight and sinks into my skin quickly which I love! I’ve been using this morning and night and am so impressed by how quickly my residual acne marks and scars are fading! My skin has been breaking out more since I moved away but this range has 100% been helping to keep it under control and fade the marks that are left over leaving my skin looking clearer quicker!

purlisse blue lotus brightening serum review

This moisturiser promises hydration, fine line prevention and it’s perfect to use under makeup for normal, dry and sensitive skin. It’s got white tea included which offers anti-bacterial and skin soothing abilities, Vitamin E to prevent premature ageing and improve skin texture and French Marine Plants to help retain moisture. My skin is more on the oily/combo side of things but this hasn’t caused me to be any more oily that usual and I actually think my skin has dried out a little since I’ve been in Canada so this is perfect. It’s a gel cream hybrid, completely non-greasy and absorbs quickly into my skin like the serum. It works so well with my foundation like most of the recent moisturisers I’ve been trying out that my poor primers are taking a backseat because I just don’t feel like I need them! I haven’t noticed any dry patches since using this either so can’t recommend enough!

I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to lip balms (see my disappointing products post here with cult favourite Nuxe Reve de Miel!) but this one I can get on board with! Quite literally as I took it with me on the plane to Canada – see what I did there?! It promises to hydrate and nourish, heal and soften and to my delight is petroleum free! It contains mango seed butter and shea butter which are highly nourishing and moisturising and also has Vtamins A, C and E.  Jojoba oil provides anti-inflammatory benefits and soothes chapped lips while Rice bran oil hydrates and protects lips from UV rays and Vitamin E leaves lips supple and youthful. This lasts so long on my lips which I love! I hate having to reapply after 10 minutes! It gives a good amount of gloss too without being too much and leaves my lips feeling moisturised and soothed as well as plump looking!

This sheet mask promised to be intensely moisturising as well as soothing and balancing. It contains White Mulberry to brighten and Anise fruit to provide continuous moisture leaving skin healthy, beautiful and radiant. I’m not an avid sheet mask user but I can safely say that I have found a favourite in this! I love the light scent and the mask itself is super saturated. I found it to fit my face really well and I didn’t want to take it off! I rubbed the remnants of the mask into my face and it felt so smoothing and hydrating I almost didn’t bother with a moisturiser. My skin always looks much more radiant and calmer the next morning!

Overall, I am so impressed with the Blue Lotus range and Purlisse as a whole! The products are incredibly gentle yet effective and a joy to use! I highly recommend if you get a chance to try them!
