Another full-size product from a recent New Beauty TestTube. NB sent it to me in the September box, which is bad timing because this is a good gel-type moisturizer for warm weather.Pros:--Pleasant going on, easy to spread--Nice gel texture--Good moisturization without exacerbating acneCons:--Gah, that watermelon scent. I realize a lot of people like watermelon. I'm one of the few people that hates it.--The price. The retail is $45USD for a 50 ml (1.7 fl oz) tube, but I paid $52USD for a 48 ml (1.6 fl oz) jar of Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Acid Cloud Cream, so what do I know.Overall, I'm taking off a half-lipstick for that icky watermelon and half a stick for the price. But you know what, I would consider buying it again. Maybe they will make another scent in the same product. I'd love to have a passion fruit or even a peach-mango gel version!Ingredients, copied from Purlisse's site: Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Glycereth-26, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Benzyl Glycol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/ VP Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Allantoin, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Raspberry Ketone, Fragrance, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Maltodextrin, 1,2 Hexanediol, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Sargassum Fulvellum (Alga) Extract, Hizikia Fusiforme (Alga) Extract, Undaria Pinnatifida (Seaweed) Extract, Ecklonia Cava (Brown Seaweed) ExtractMade in Korea

Good light coverage, nice color in "Light" for light/light med skin. Not for super pale gals I think. But you never know. I have a darker light slight yellow under tone with a small amount of sun spots sometimes when I am not up on addressing those pesky side effects from hot Florida. I am 58 with oily occasional troubled skin, slightly sensitive and with ever slight minor wrinkles. I can't say to its holding up into Florida high summer heat high 90s as it is fall/early winter weather now from 65-80s when I tried this out. Not as nice feeling as my fav Dr Jart beauty balm but not as bad as others. I have yet to find a BB or CC cream that don't irritate or build up oil on my face after wearing all day with exception of Dr Jart BB cream. This has a few good Korean type ingredients - a nod to oriental healthy skin care in it. 30spf is wonderful bonus too! This Purlisse BB cream has really nice heavier medium coverage that I didn't need to mix in a heavier foundation. Matte not too shinny like so many others. If you have normal to dry skin you would not need to use finishing powder, but dryer gals may have to use a moisturizer under this one. This BB cream feels ever so slightly tacky but with staying power. I used my long standing fav Laura Geller Baked Balance n Brighten Fair to set it, light - light dusting as I don't want it to slip off my face. Made it feel dryer less tacky, just right. This is the only baked powder style "foundation" I've found that works on me to even out and finish without itching, emphasizing imperfections or clogging up my pores or increasing oil. It is slightly heavier then finishing powder so i have to use it with slight of hand to keep it light. I have never had it not work ever with any BB or CC cream. Using it with Purlisse Perfect Glow BB cream was no problem, worked out fine. If I ran out of Jart I would use this Purlisse BB cream at least in warm to cool weather. I used to use/mix Laura Geller's All in one Skin Perfecting BB 3/4 and Take cover foundation 1/4 which was the perfect coverage and lightness. Since she discontinued Take Cover I tired mixing her other liquid foundations but nothing worked out. Then I tried quite a palethera of foundations with not so good results. Luckily I found Dr Jart from a monthly makeup sample service, made me ecstatically happy. Thankfully this Purlisse Perfect Glow BB cream is now a option for me. I recommend trying it, a reasonable safe bet for oily and or older skin. Purlisse website 12/5/18 has a 40ml 1.4 oz tube for $45 retail. Amazon has the light for $35, the pricing was from $22.59 to $35 in all the shades.
