Purito is one of the more popular Korean skincare brands I keep hearing on the market, and lots and lots of people rave about their sunscreens! I picked up the Purito Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ PA++++ – the most recommended one out of their 3 sunscreens, and the most compared to Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++.
INFORMATION ON PURITO CENTELLA GREEN LEVEL UNSCENTED SUN SPF50+ PA++++
If you couldn’t use sunscreen because you were put off by its strong scent or because your skin doesn’t take well to natural essential oils, you should try the new PURITO Centella Unscented Sun. Use the highly concentrated super centella and enjoy cica-care with an increased content of madecassoside. The new cica-care enhances the skin barrier to provide better protection from strong ultraviolet rays and external stimuli.
The product contains mild and safe ingredients that helps to avoid side effects of the existing chemical sunscreens such as eye and skin irritation. It doesn’t cause any discomfort, even when applied to sensitive skin. If applying sunscreen before makeup was a burden because of the white cast and the stifling feeling, PURITO Centella Unscented is the right product for you, as it spreads in a thin, transparent layer and doesn’t leave a heavy finish on the skin.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH PURITO CENTELLA GREEN LEVEL UNSCENTED SUN SPF50+ PA++++
PACKAGING: Opaque white plastic tube with small spout.
CONSISTENCY: Gel-cream, leaning more on the cream.
APPLICATION: Glides on very easily with a light touch. While applying, it appears white on the skin but it fades as it’s blended in.
FINISH: Glowy, when I touch my skin it feels like there’s an oily residue.
FEEL: Neutral. I find that despite the moisturized look, I can’t rely on this as a moisturizing SPF, even in the summertime.
STINGS EYES? No.
WHITECAST / TINTED? No.
WATER RESISTANT? No.
SKIN BENEFITS? My skin feels very comfortable when I use it and rarely stings. Even if my skin feels particularly sensitive, I find this SPF doesn’t exacerbate the irritation and calms any redness.
UNDER MAKEUP: I like using it as my tester sunscreen for under makeup, because the finish is similar to my moisturizer. It doesn’t take away my foundation’s longevity, but it doesn’t add to it like a mineral SPF would.
- Highest protection you can find in Asian sunscreens – SPF50+ PA++++
- Very easy to apply the 2mg/cm2
- Feels comfortable
- Purito shares the percentage of UV Filters as well as the PPD value
- I find the finish sometimes too oily
- I feel like I used it less than 30 times and I’m almost done the 60ml tube; I could have over applied while using it
FINAL THOUGHTS ON PURITO CENTELLA GREEN LEVEL UNSCENTED SUN SPF50+ PA++++
True to the hype, the Purito Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ PA++++ is indeed an awesome sunscreen! Whether or not it’s better than the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence, I like both of them for completely different reasons. I like Purito Centella Green Level Unscented Sun for it being more on the emollient side, non-sensitizing, and containing Centella Asiatica constituents. Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence is in a larger tube for just a few more dollars, and I find myself reaching for it more for reapplication because of it’s gel-cream texture leaning on the more gel side. I find any skin type would be happy with either depending how your overall morning skincare routine is.
