How much ever I love my full coverage and long staying foundations, lightweight multi-tasking products are my go-to for work or running errands every day. That is where Purlisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF30 fits the bill perfectly!
Purlisse is known for its amazing Asian/Korean beauty based skincare and I am glad I could try some of its coveted products and review on the blog.
Today’s post is going to be my detailed review on the Purlisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF30 in the shade Medium.
PURLISSE BB TINTED MOIST CREAM SPF30
BB stands for “Beauty Balm” and is a Korean jargon that stormed the beauty world few years back and had all brands lining up products termed BB, CC and the likes.
Typically BB creams are multi-taskers – they not only hydrate your skin but also offer some coverage alongside skin improving and anti-aging properties. In short – they are tinted moisturizers in layman terms.
Trust me – I have tried various BB/CC creams and left them for good, since I never could really love them so much. I felt none of them could offer me a balance of coverage and hydration and back those days my skin needed both of them very badly.
And trust me again – I love this product for the same reason! My skin has improved a lot over the years and I am ready to trade-in coverage for other important factors like moisturization, finish or longevity now.
Purlisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF30 brings that elusive balance to the table with some amazing Asian herbs complex, Chamomile, Artemisia & Sugar maple extracts as anti-aging agents and not to miss its good sun protection too!
A very pigmented product for a tinted moisturizer, this BB cream comes in three shades – Light, Medium & Deep.
I have the shade Medium with me and have posted a picture of the true to shade swatch below for your reference.
I prep my skin as usual for base makeup and apply this product in dots all over my face and start blending in either with a sponge or my fingers. It glides easily into the skin, thanks to its moisturizing properties and one can immediately see how it has evened out skin tone upon application. It gives a very natural finish.
It takes say around a minute to settle and provide a nice dewy finish to my skin. My skin looks visibly brightened and even. A light spritz of setting spray and I am done!
I love using this over my existing SPF50 sunscreen and have never faced white-cast or ghost issues in selfies or other photos.
Purlisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF30 offers light to medium coverage in one round of application depending on your skin nature. It doesn’t hide deep/dark spots, but only camouflages them lightly. You might want to use your favorite concealer to hide those as usual.
Another stunning thing that I have noticed is that even without some setting spray, this cream stays put for almost the whole day without budging or fading. I easily get 6+ hours of wear every time I wear this and more so with setting spray. At the time of makeup removal, I always found skin with a dewy glow and slight brightness.
I am currently trying another product that combines skincare and makeup in one, but I definitely love and see myself reaching out to the Purlisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF30 (Medium) more for obvious reasons above.
Since it comes in a tube, its easy to travel with too and the nozzle delivers only enough product required leading to no wastage.
I have never loved a K-beauty product this much ever! This is like making makeup healthy! Only issue I see is that it just has 3 shades to choose from.
If you are someone who won’t mind spending 35 bucks on a good product, you should definitely try this. One tube would last easily 2 months or more even when used daily.
