The packaging is clean and effective, with instructions and ingredients clearly labeled. No gimmicks, flashy packaging or false claims, just straight to the point and effective packaging. The professional look is what gave me the initial boost of confidence in The Pure to begin with.
The Vitamin C Facial Cleanser ($24, 6 fl.oz.) is gentle yet effective. The oils in the cleanser helps remove some dirt and mess while the Aloe Vera gave enough moisture not to strip my skin. That said, you should always use a makeup remover before using the cleansing because this is gentle and lacks the power to get under your skin to remove any heavy makeup. The Vitamin C Eye Cream ($35, 0.5 oz.) and Facial Moisturizer ($34, 2 oz.) are probably my favorite products in this skincare line. Vitamin C goes a long way to help reduce dark circles. I’ve noticed considerable lightening of my undereye circles (caused by allergies and poor habits) since I’ve started using the cream. The moisturizer is light, but thick enough to leave my skin feeling very soft and supple.
As for the Vitamin C Concentrate Serum ($45, 1 fl.oz.), I found it to be lacking – especially for the price. It gives a bit of light, cooling moisture – but has done little else for me. I don’t know if I would get the serum again, since I think the facial moisturizer and eye cream does everything the serum does – and more.
Vitamin C is not a skincare ingredient for everyone. If you are interested in The Pure Natural Skincare but don’t fancy the thought of using Vitamin C, By Green People also offer a Botanical Skincare line, which may sit better with your skin. The Pure Natural Skincare can be found exclusively on their website at bygreenpeople.com.
