Skincare is the most competitive market in the beauty industry. Between my beauty box subscriptions to Birchbox and TestTube and the gift bags I receive at beauty events, I can’t tell you how many different skincare samples I receive every month. I try to use each sample I get at least once and to be honest, there are few brands that stand out.
When I met Jennifer Yen at the NewBeauty store opening at Fred Segal last month, I was instantly drawn to her energetic personality and passion for her skincare line, Pur~Lisse. “Pur~Lisse is French for pure and smooth and allows time-tested Chinese beauty rituals to embrace today’s French skin know-how for an inspirational marriage of nature and science.” Proven Chinese beauty secrets mixed with French sciences? Ok, I’m interested. I picked up the Bright & Beautiful Jet Set Starter Kit to give the line a try and I am very glad that I did! The products are amazing. The Starter Kit includes a cleanser, brightening serum, moisturizer, moisturizer with SPF, and eye serum.
My favorite products from the Starter Kit are the moisturizer, eye serum, and brightening serum. These fab products have graduated from samples to staples for my nightly skincare routine. Here’s a breakdown of my three favorites:
Pur~Lisse Ultra Skin Brightening Serum
Brightening serums always seem to have that astringent effect making my skin feel tight and overly shiny. Thankfully, Pur~Lisse’s brightening serum is different! It feels like a moisturizer but somehow, someway, it actually brightens my skin. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my complexion since I started using it a few weeks ago. According to Pur~Lisse, the magic ingredient is an exclusive peptide complex, Lotus Lupine 5. What does that mean, you ask? I don’t know, and I don’t care. Bottom line: It works. Best of all, the Pur~Lisse products are so lightweight that you can apply the moisturizer over the serum without your skin feeling heavy or greasy.
Pur~Lisse Hydra-Balance Moisturizer
Use this moisturizer if you want super-duper soft skin. That basically sums it up! Just like the rest of the Pur~Lisse line, the moisturizer is lightweight and non-greasy. I apply the moisturizer before bed and my skin is hydrated and glowing in the morning.
Pur~Lisse Quadra Benefit Eye Serum
The eye area is very delicate (and prone to wrinkles) so it’s important to keep it hydrated. Got dark circles? Puffiness? More signs that you need to hydrate your eye area! The Pur~Lisse eye serum is a miracle worker. I use it every night and have noticed that my eye area looks brighter and healthier. Love it!
