PURITO Centella Green Level All in One Mild Pad Review
I was so glad to be able to try out Purito’s Centella Green Level All In One Mild Pads. The founder contacted me first and I was kindly gifted a few products in exchange for my honest opinions.
Founded in 2014, Purito is a brand committed to using safe and honest ingredients. They do not perform animal testing and produce eco-friendly products at reasonable prices.
The founder is very friendly and open to any forms of feedback, regardless of positive or negative ones which I am very impressed of.
The Purito Centella Green Level All In One Mild Pad uses all EWG Green Level ingredients, BHA, and 10% Centella Asiatica Extract to gently exfoliate the skin, decrease inflammation, and remove make-up and sebum.
The Purito Centella Green Level All In One Mild Pad is gentle on the skin and great for sensitive skin leaving the skin feeling clean and refreshed. It gently assists the skin in removing excess sebum and make up without irritating the pores or skin, re-enforces the skin barrier and leaves the skin softly moisturized.
Water, Centella Asiatica Extract, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Betaine, Betaine Salicylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Arginine, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Allantoin, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Panthenol, Polyglyceryl-10 Oleate, Myristyl Myristate, Caprylyl Glycol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Disodium EDTA, Melaleuca Quinquenervia Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid
The ingredient list is very clean. Madecassoside, Centella are my favourite ingredients for intense soothing.
A lightweight plastic tub packaging. I love the graphics inside the box, showing how it can be used. This is suitable for various usage. A versatile product which is suitable even for your body. Like for me, I have back-acne and this acts like a scrub for my back too.
Nothing over fanciful. Clean and simple packaging.
Comes with a seal for freshness. The seal is not loose, the pads inside are well soaked but I don’t see any additional essence inside.
It comes with a little tool, so as to not contaminate the entire tub with your fingers.
There are two sides. One side is with texture while the other side is smooth. I forgot to take a photo of the other side, sorry. I will update it again!
How to use: After cleansing, use the raised side of the pad to gently wipe off any remaining make-up and debris from the skin. Use the opposite smooth side of the pad to gently wipe away any excess dirt or sebum. Let air dry, patting gently over the skin. Follow-up with your favourite moisturizer and/or cream.
It’s very watery so the skin absorbs it fast without any residue left behind.
Does it do what it claims?
Claim 1: Gently exfoliates the skin, decreases inflammation, and removes make-up and sebum.
It does gentle exfoliation when my skin is sensitive, whenever I need something less strong. It does remove impurities off my face as I can see the leftovers on the cotton pad.
Claim 2: Gentle on the skin and great for sensitive skin leaving the skin feeling clean and refreshed. It gently assists the skin in removing excess sebum and make up without irritating the pores or skin, re-enforces the skin barrier and leaves the skin softly moisturized.
Yes, it does. However, I have to give a heads up, the rough side can be quite irritating if you rub it too vigorously. So please, do it gently. I do regular exfoliation these days, so yes, my skin’s texture is softer than usual.

| Thoughts |
This ended up great for lazy days or days I needed something gentler (emergency). I was quite impressed as it helps with the tiny stubborn pimples. It did not work very well on my big acne though. However, I am ok with it as for the bigger acne, I tend to use other spots treatments to deal with it. There’s a lot of dead skin around my mouth area, which can look very pronounced when I do my makeup. With this, I simply wipe the mouth area and the make up adheres better! Emergency use as always. I will be repurchasing this product.
| Where to buy? |
It’s available on Eopenmarket (International) & Ezbuy (SG customers).
