Review: Purito – Daily Go-to Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++

Where to purchase: Yesstyle: LINK / Stylevana: LINK / iHerb: LINK

Price: £19 / $22

Volume: 60ml

Made in: South Korea

What is it?: A hybrid, unscented, no white cast SPF 50+ PA++++ Sunblock from Purito (contains both ”chemical” and ”physical” filters) that is highly blendable (i.e. easy to move around) and is good under makeup and easy to apply.

Do I agree?: Does not leave a white cast for my olive-toned skin. Yes this is easy to re-apply and is fine under makeup.

Is the rating legit?: If you read the SPF Rating Official Report HERE – Purito have confirmed that this SPF has the correct rating it says on the bottle at: SPF50+ PA++++

What does it do?: Protect the skin while soothing it (due to inclusion of Cica) and not giving a white cast.

Supposedly Good for: All Skin Types (Even Sensitive Skin)

What I think: Normal and Dry Skins would prefer this over Oily Skins (Quite shiny on the skin). However if you enjoy a dewy finish regardless of your skin type; then oilier skins could use this as it is lightweight (breathable).


Vegan?: No.

Cruelty Free?: Yes.

How long does it last after opening?: 12 Months.

Packaging: Plastic, Squeeze-y Tube with a cap (Easy to use + doesn’t spill).

Note: This is in a 100% PCR Tube (post-consumer recycled material)

How I use it: I apply as instructed and if I wanted to apply makeup on top, I could. It’s easy to apply this onto the skin and rub in.

NOTE: The Incidecoder have a full ingredient breakdown HERE

Texture: This is a moisturising cream-type SPF that feels smooth on the skin and is easy to massage into the skin. It is also not heavy. It doesn’t feel drying or ball up. However once this settles, I still find that this makes my oily-combination skin feel slightly oily/greasy. I think Dry skins would appreciate this effect, but for me, it’s noticeable.

Sticky?: No.

Greasy?: Yes – This has a dewy / Glowy finish and even has a slight greasy feeling if I rub/touch the skin.

Balls up?: No. Unless I rub very hard.

  • As you can see, this is a cream SPF. It is opaque and will disperse the more I rub it in.

Comparison: No Product (Left) / Product (Right)

  • This has a shiny / dewy finish.

Does this leave a white cast?: As you can see, this has a glowy and reflective finish. It’s shiny, glowy and dewy BUT for my Warm-Golden Skin, this does NOT give me a white cast or make me look sick or grey. I am unsure about how this would look on darker skin tones however, as this does contain Titanium Dioxide (albeit not so much, hence why this is mixed in with other filters and doesn’t look immediately white/grey in my opinion).

Does this Sting if the Skin has been Irritated / Sensitised by Shaving/Heavy Retinol Use?: I haven’t experience this. Furthermore, sensitive (not sensitised) skins would find this ok to use.

Summer or Winter?: For Normal + Dry Skins – all-year round. For Combination Skins – Winter.

Layerable?: Yes (doesn’t ball up).


Video Swatch:

  • As you can see, this has a reflective finish. It looks slightly shiny on the hand, but shinier on the face.

Fragrance?: Fragrance and Essential Oil Free – This also doesn’t smell strongly of anything.

Good Under Makeup?: Yes (i.e. this doesn’t ball up. But this is greasy/dewy so make sure you would like that kind of finish).

How long have I been using this?: 2 Months.

Will I use until Completion?: I might end up giving this to my sister if I can’t handle the shine in public. However, what I can do is use this under makeup, as it will give a nice glow underneath my foundation.

How Long will that take?: roughly 2 Months.

The Effect?: Moisturised skin as this is greasy / dewy (I can use a mattifying powder to matte this product down). The skin can breathe because this is lightweight. This didn’t irritate or worsen my skin.

What I like:

  • Cruelty-Free
  • Lightweight
  • Doesn’t ball up
  • Layers fine
  • Fragrance + EO Free
  • No White Cast (For my Olive-Toned Skin)

What I don’t like:

  • Very dewy / Shiny Finish
  • Feels slightly greasy on the skin (doesn’t go away)

Overall Rating and Conclusion: 3.6/5 – I would agree, this product is weightless and scentless and doesn’t ball up. However, the finish is too shiny / dewy for my taste, and I’m not a fan of the slight greasy finish it gives me (but I think dry skins would like that). I appreciate the sun protection and how my skin does feel moisturised, and that this layers fine, but this SPF simply doesn’t match my skin type and the finish I prefer with my SPFs. If I had dry skin I think I would really enjoy this dewy/glowy finish. Therefore I would recommend this to Normal and Dry and Sensitive Skins.

Would I repurchase?: No, as I’m not a fan of dewy finishes.

Dupe?: If you like a Shiny/Dewy Finish, then the Beauty of Joseon SPF HERE (review HERE) is a good alternative (however slightly more silicone-y in texture), or the Isntree Watery Sun Gel is a nicer-textured dupe HERE (review HERE) or the Etude Soon Jung SPF HERE (Review HERE). (Note: All of these are SPF50+)

Matte Finish SPF alternatives: The Missha Aqua Sun Gel (Previous Formula) HERE or the Eucerin Mattifying Sun Bluid HERE (Both ae SPF50 with no White Cast).

My Skin Type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combo skin. My skin is usually tight where the cheeks and eye area is and the outer parts of my face. My T zone is oily. My skin isn’t a fan of thick/heavy formulas so I opt for lightweight formulas to prevent it from clogging up. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either and I try to avoid fragrance when I can.
