Beauty Find - Pur-lisse Skincare

I first heard about the Pur-lisse line about a year ago, but it was after a direct exchange with Pur-Lisse founder, Jennifer Yen (you need to see how amazing her skin looks!), via Twitter, that I was intrigued enough to actually try the line.

Boy am I glad I did!

Pur-Lisse is a line which marries time-tested Chinese beauty rituals with modern French skincare technology. Using a unique, patent-pending Lotus Lupine complex that blends Blue Lotus and White Tea, it offers superior age prevention and skin-soothing products without harsh ingredients such as parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic color/fragrance or animal by-products.

Here are some of my favorite picks from the line.

pur-lisse pur-delicate gentle soy milk cleanser

This is one of the best cleansing products I've tried this year, hands down. It is so gentle and left my skin feeling refreshed, but not stripped or dry. The actual texture of the cleanser is fantastic. It felt like liquid silk on my skin, and in addition, removed all of my make up instantly, (even waterproof mascara) quickly and easily. After rinsing my skin was clean, soft, and smooth. The smell is great - nice and fresh (almost a Ivory Snow type of element), which I loved. I used this cleanser morning and night for several weeks and loved how toned and balanced my skin looked and felt. I also love the packaging. The pump action dispenser administers the perfect amount of cleanser. This is a product that would also work well for those of you who have sensitive, combination and even acne prone skin. Worth every penny in my book!

pur-lisse pur-bright ultra skin brightening serum

There are often 1 or 2 small pigmentation spots that I battle during the year, so I was excited to see what this gentle serum could do. It turns out that it packs a very powerful punch! The serum does this (without the controversial ingredient, hydroquinone) as well.

I used the serum 2x day after cleansing. It was extremely light with a soft and invisible feel on my skin. It layered nicely with sunscreen or primer/sunscreen products that I applied over it as well.
After just the first 2 weeks my small areas looked much better and I will continue to use. This is a terrific product for those of you looking for a non-hydroquinone solution to skin evening.

pur-lisse pur-moist hydra-balance moisturizer

This is a very interesting moisturizer, in that even though I have normal/combination skin, I felt that because it was so lightweight, it couldn't give me the moisture I needed. But I only needed a few a few days of using the product to see that I was wrong. It absorbed quickly and left no film, sticky or greasy residue. My skin looked fantastic with no breakouts or irritation, and was very well hydrated, soft and smooth. This moisturizer worked well under makeup and worked nicely on the eye area as well. This packaging is also perfect for gym/travel.

pur-lisse pur-lip comfort daily lip nourisher*

I do have a few favorite lip balm products, but I'm always willing to try a new one to add to my collection, and this one makes the cut! This is actually what it says a lip nourisher - in that the texture is a very light, clear gel/lotion hybrid. It's not really a balm or gloss - although it gave me a very nice natural shine for days when I just wore a neutral lipstick. Once I put in on my lips I could really feel the difference. It absorbed quickly and hydrated my lips (without a greasy, sticky or wet feeling).

My lips were very soft, smooth and plump all day, and I always noticed the difference if I didn't apply it first thing in the morning before my lip color as a base. This is now a must-have lip product in my makeup bag and will be essential for the very cold/hot temps and airplane travel, which can be so drying.

*This is a petroleum-free product.
