Remembering the Purito sunscreens...

Remember the time when the Purito suncreen was a craze? Well I was rummaging through my unused skincare stash and I just found these unopened tubes of the original version and it kinda took me back to when I joined the hype. I already forgot that I even bought them coz I believe you can't buy them anymore since Purito already pulled them out of the market. Purito was my first K-brand sunscreen and I used it for a few months last year. I was initially planning on buying the unscented variant but it was out of stock back then so I settled for a tube of the original one. I immediately fell in love with it so I ordered a few more tubes so I won't run out and then the Purito SPF controversy blew up. It left a bad taste in my mouth, that's why I stopped buying from the brand. Now that I'm seeing these again, I thought to myself that I can still use them even if their SPF rating didn't really deliver its promise. Setting aside the scandal, Purito sunscreens have a lot of other great ingredients like niacinamide, centella, hyaluronic acid and Vit. E. I think they can still serve as good moisturizers and I'll just make sure to use a separate sunscreen. I hope Purito comes out with a new line of sunscreens soon coz I think I'm now willing to try them out again. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

Ya, matter of fact they are releasing three new sunscreens. The brand overall is very ethical and I will still support them. They always listen to the consumers feedback and that's what I love abt the brand the most. They basically started the unscented trend and other brands are following along too

I saw that on insta and I'm sure this time around they'll be more involved and hands-on with the clinical tests. Hope the come out with the new line soon.

i think they owned up to their mistake at least, i liked that they have been honest about it despite the huge disappointment of their customers.😬 and indeed you can use them as face creams it won't hurt at allπŸ‘πŸΌ

They really can't dispute 3 separate tests so I think they had no choice but to pull out their sunscreens. And yeah, Purito's not really the cheapest on the market so might as well make use of their creams πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Yes! I'm now realizing that Purito isn't cheap and there's nothing else wrong with the product aside from the failed SPF rating. I can easily get SPF50 from the Missha sun gel than I'm using now even if I still use Purito as a moisturizer 😁😁

The problem was on manufacturers side and I'm not blaming the brand. They have many great products. But thanks to that I've discovered many great sunscreens instead 😁 Like Canmake Mermaid UV Gel or Round Lab Birch Juice Suncream!

That’s right. It was the manufacturing company that screwed up no Purito.

Same! I enjoyed their centella sunscreens so I'm pretty sure I'll love their new ones the same.
