I first heard of Purito on an online forum, and at first the cute name sparked my interest but I didn’t think too much more about the brand. It was only when I was on the hunt for a new eye cream that I came across Purito again. It’s my habit to look up a bunch of products and then look at the ingredients and to see if there are any reviews about them too. I noticed that all the reviews I found raved about this eye cream and most people seemed to find it worked really well for them.
Naturally I wanted to try it as well, but it was only when I realized it had peptides and 49% centella asiatica that I finally decided to order it. It seemed to work well for other people at moisturizing their undereye area and I hoped it would work well for me too. Often, I find my sunscreen dries out the undereye area and causes fine lines (they only appear with some sunscreens) so I really want to find an eye cream that can combat this problem. Of course, it’s not something that can be resolved so quickly, but now that I’ve almost finished the tube I should be able to see some kind of result, right?

Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream Review:
This eye cream comes in a brown box which looks like it’s made from recycled cardboard (I don’t know if it is but it looks like it), but inside the tube is a very simple white tube, with a rather bright green on it.
Personally, I don’t like the shade of green, it’s a bit too bright for me, but the packaging itself is okay. I don’t really care what it looks like as long as it works well.
The texture is quite light and it is very easy to spread over top of a serum or toner. The eye cream feels very light and spreads very easily. It almost looks oily when you first spread it, but it doesn’t feel that heavy or oily if you touch your skin.
I didn’t notice any kind of scent or fragrance to this product, and it recommends using it with their Centella Green Level buffet serum as well.
I did use it with the buffet serum, but I also used it on its own because I wanted to see how well it would work on its own. Considering it had a high amount of centella (49%) I was curious if that would make a difference in my skin since centella asiatica is meant to be full of amino acids and other minerals and nutrients that should be good for skin.
It also meant to be good for anti-aging and boosting collagen production. It should also help calm inflammation and help wounds heal, so over all it sounds a bit like a miracle product.
The centella asiatica is actually listed as the first ingredient in this and since it contains 49%, it should work quite well, or at least I would hope so.
It also contains three other ingredients that are derived from centella asiatica (Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid and Madecassic acid) as well as four peptides. The peptides are about half way up the ingredient list which isn’t too bad, but I still wonder if there is enough to show some kind of improvement.
After all the ingredient list is quite long and we know the Centella makes up 49%, so the other 61% is divided amongst the other ingredients. Although admittedly I don’t know what percentage of peptides is considered effective.
The peptides are the following ones: Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-10.
Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12 is considered to be one of the best natural anti-agers.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 helps the boost the production of collagen, shorten wrinkles and improve rough skin.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is used to help reduce UV damage and is intentionally designed to firm up the skin around the eye area.
The last peptide is one that I can’t find much information about, making me think it’s a newer one?
It sounds as if Purito are using many great peptides in this eye cream, and so it seems that this eye cream would work very well around the eye area. You could say I was very hopeful about this eye cream considering the ingredients. I planned to write this review much earlier, but now the tube is almost finished – I had to cut it in half to get the last bit of the eye cream out.
I first started using this eye cream back on the 4th of September, so it’s lasted almost four months, which is quite good considering I am quite generous with eye creams.
I usually put them around my eyes, my smile lines and over also my forehead. If you only use it around your eyes, it would probably last longer than that. I usually only apply it in the morning because I’m forgetful at night and usually realize once I’m in bed that I forgot it.
Anyway, I had high hopes for this eye cream, with its peptides and centella but I don’t think it works that well for me. Some days I skipped the eye cream, but my under eyes looked no worse or different than from when I used the eye cream.
I don’t think this eye cream is heavy enough for my dry/dehydrated skin, and it didn’t seem to make a difference in how moisturized they were. I even tried layering it with another eye cream, but it still didn’t make a huge difference. I haven’t seen any difference from the peptides either.
That was another reason I waited for the tube to run out, because I think peptides need a long time to show some kind of effect. I’ve been using another peptide product for part of the time I used this eye cream.
What’s interesting is that I stopped the other peptide for about a month, and my skin got worse even though I was using this peptide eye cream. I guess for me it’s just not heavy enough and maybe the peptides aren’t in a high enough concentration to show any effect for me. Considering the other peptide product only took a few weeks to show a difference.
So sadly, as much as I wanted to love this product and I had high hopes for it, ultimately it just didn’t work out for me. At this point I wouldn’t buy it again, because it didn’t really do anything for me at all.
But I still want to try other Purito products because I think some of their products are probably great. I think this eye cream is best suited to someone with oily or normal skin. I don’t think it’s heavy enough for people with dry or very dehydrated skin.
