Today I bring you Pur-lisse pur-Protect SPF Essential Daily Moisturizer. This was one of the items in the March MyGlam bag. I had heard great things about the Pur-lisse brand so I was very much anticipating trying this. Because this was in a sample foil, I transferred it into a tiny craft jar in order to extend the use of it. As I was doing this the overwhelming smell of coppertone sunscreen hit me. Nevertheless I still wanted to try it.

This is a thick white cream. It didn’t feel like it fully absorbed, instead I felt like it left behind a film. After a few hours my skin actually started feeling dry.  I use a BB cream nearly every day as my daytime moisturizer and my foundation. I have never actually had my face start to feel dry using it. I figured something must be off so I tried again a few days later after following my normal routine for a few days. Again I used just the Pur-lisse. It really didn’t do what I was hoping for. My skin felt ok for the first 5-6 hours, but after that it again felt dry.

On top of it not feeling very moisturizing was the strong sunscreen smell. There is, to me, a reason that there are facial SPF products and others intended for your body. Having that strong of a scent all over your face (near your nose) is just not plesant. The smell stuck around for the first hour or so. I don’t know if it faded away or if I just got used to it, either way not my thing.

Overall this product just didn’t do it for me. I might have had too high expectations, but then again I really want any product I buy to perform great. I’m glad I tried this as a sample as opposed to having purchased it.

Will I buy it again? No, I have a suncscreen I like, I have a moisturizer I like, and I have a BB cream that does both.

Will I finish the sample? I don’t think so

Here’s the breakdown:

Sample Size 0.14 oz
Full Size 11.7 oz
Full Size Price $55.00
Sample Value $0.66
