Here comes my PURITO Centella Green Level Eye Cream review! This is the first one I’m doing from the brand. Have you noticed how popular PURITO has become within the K-Beauty community in the west? I tried a sample of the Centella Green Level Eye Cream which came with an order that I placed at Jolse, and immediately went and purchased the full size. I also got the PURITO Centella Green Level Buffet Serum, Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream and the Comfy Water Sun Block. I’ll be posting my reviews on those in the upcoming weeks. You can follow my blog via email located on the sidebar if you don’t want to miss them.
Now let’s get back and talk a bit about eye creams! Are they really necessary or just a marketing tactic? When I was getting into skincare in my late teens I would always hear how necessary it was to have a separate cream for your eye area as the skin is thinner and more sensitive around the eyes. Eye creams are also often pretty expensive. But as I learned more, to be honest I don’t think an eye cream is necessary unless you want to target wrinkles or your skin is particularly sensitive. Regarding the latter, you should be already using skincare that is suitable for sensitive skin.
What is the PURITO Centella Green Level Eye Cream?
This is an eye cream that aims to moisturize, soothe and tackle the signs of ageing formulated with 49% Centella Asiatica Extract, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol and Peptides. The tube contains 30ml (1fl.oz.) of product.
I apply this after I have applied toner, essence and/or serum on my face. I have oily skin that is prone to dehydration, so I apply a very thin layer of this eye cream around my eye area. If you put on more, it’ll feel more moisturizing. On days when I take out a bit too much from the tube I massage it down on my cheeks and smile lines. It glides so smoothly I love it.
I was very impressed with this eye cream since the first time I used it. It went on so smooth on the skin and the finish was velvety. My undereye area felt hydrated without feeling greasy or heavy at all. I don’t like anything that may feel heavy under my eyes as it accentuates my fine lines and can cause milia. Not only was this lightweight, but also enough moisturizing to make a difference.
It works great under makeup. I didn’t notice my concealer separating or caking. On the contrary, I noticed it applied slightly better.
The PURITO Centella Green Level Eye Cream does contain essential oils (at the very bottom of the ingredients list), however I didn’t experience any kind of irritation. My skin is not sensitive to them. I’ve used toners, sunscreens and other skincare with EOs and not even once have I experienced irritation or redness. For those of you that are sensitive I read they’re making an unscented version omitting the essential oils, so definitely keep an eye out for that.
If you have mature skin or are concerned about wrinkles this could be a good everyday eye cream, however I would recommend you opt for a retinol eye cream instead. Even dry skin types can use this, but you’ll have to use more than someone with oily skin. I wouldn’t mind that to be honest as this is pretty affordable (considering where you buy it, of course).
The PURITO Centella Green Level Eye Cream contains 49% Centella Asiatica Extract which has calming, healing and antioxidant properties. It also contains separately Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid – the active components of Centella Asiatica. You can say this is packed with CA goodness.
Sodium Hyaluronate (the salt form of Hyaluronic Acid), Glycerin and other humectants to moisturize the skin. Panthenol (pro-Vitamin B5) is soothing, calms redness and strengthens the skin barrier.
This eye cream is formulated with four types of peptides: Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, and Palmitoyl Dipeptide-10 which are supposed to improve firmness and stimulate collagen production.
The formula is alcohol-free, however it does contain 2 essential oils at the end of the list. Check out the ingredients in more detail: here.
Centella Asiatica Extract (49 %), Water, Hydrogenated C6-14 Olefin Polymer, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Cetyl Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Methyl Trimethicone, Dipropylene Glycol, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Dipentaerythrityl Hexa C5-9 Acid Esters, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Cetearyl Olivate, Butyrospermum Parkii, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-10, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Madecassic Acid, Sorbitan Olivate, Stearic Acid, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, Tromethamine, Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate, Panthenol, Carbomer, Stearyl Alcohol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Cholesterol, Acetyl Glucosamine, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Limnanthes Alba Seed Oil (Meadowfoam), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Ceramide Np, Pancratium Maritimum Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Fruit Oil (Bergamot), Disodium Edta, Adenosine, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender)
- Fills in the fine lines and makes the under eye area look smoother.

- Silky smooth texture and doesn’t feel greasy.
- Creates a good base for makeup.
- Best for normal, combination and oily skin.

You know by now that one of the things I love about this eye cream is the texture, followed by how moisturizing yet lightweight this is. I don’t think eye creams can do wonders and they’re not necessary for most people. However, I did like the experience and it’s really nice to have considering its price point. If you don’t have any particular concerns about your under eyes you can simply use your regular skincare. This eye cream would be suitable for most skin types, except for those that are sensitive to EO (please refer to the ingredients list if anything else can be sensitizing for your skin).
I would repurchase this eye cream (although not regularly). I say definitely give this a try if you’d like to see if an eye cream makes a difference for you or not.
Where to buy: If you’d like to purchase this eye cream you can find it at Yesstyle* at the regular price of $11.90. It is also currently on sale at Stylevana* for $10.69 and Jolse* carries it at $12.21.
