Have you heard? Purito Centella Green Level Calming Toner now comes in a fragrance-free version.
Purito Centella Unscented Toner is basically the same formula, but without all the essential oils that could make sensitive skin scream in pain. Should you make the switch?
Let’s find out:
What’s In Purito Centella Unscented Toner?
CENTELLA ASIATICA TO SOOTHE SKIN
Centella Asiatica. Gotu kola. Indian pennywort. Same thing. It’s a small plant that grows in damp areas all over the world, from India and China to South Africa and Mexico.
Here’s everything Centella Asiatica does for your skin:
- In a small study on real skin in humans, asiaticoside (a component of centella asiatica) reduces crow’s feet
- In human skin in vitro, madecassoside (another component of centella asiatica) prevents UBV-induced hyperpigmentation
- In rats, centella asiatica helps heal wounds by boosting collagen production
- In rats, madecassoside shows powerful anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritations
- Centella asiatica contains antioxidants that fights free radicals and boost collagen
P.S. PURITO Centella Unscented Toner doesn’t just contain 10% Centella Asiatica extract. It also has 4 of its most soothing components: Madecassoside, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid. It’s Centella Asiatica on steroids!

SODIUM HYALURONATE TO HYDRATE SKIN
Sodium hyaluronate its a form of hyaluronic acid that attracts and binds to the skin up to 1000 times its weight in water. Plus, it works well both in high and low humidity conditions.
When skin has that much moisture, it plumps up. This alone is enough to make your fine lines look smaller – temporarily. Hydration also makes skin soft and gives the complexion a dewy glow (think Korean skin).

Watery to the point of runny.
How To Use It
Morning and night, right after cleansing. Pour a few drops onto a cotton pad and pat it all over your face.
Performance & Personal Opinion
Purito Centella Unscented Toner is so lightweight, it sinks in immediately without leaving any stickiness on my skin.
I can’t say I saw a huge difference since I’ve started using it. But then, I never do with toners (that’s why I personally don’t use them on a regular basis).
It’s not the most hydrating, but if you have dry skin that needs all the help it can get, this’ll up your hydration levels a little.
I don’t find it particularly soothing, but then my skin rarely gets irritated. If you have sensitive skin that throws a tantrum or a compromised skin barrier, the generous dollop of Centella Asiatica in here can help relieve the symptoms and nurse your skin back to health faster.
I don’t think I’m the best person to review this toner because my skin doesn’t need it. But if you have sensitive skin, this is a good way to incorporate Centella Asiatica in your routine without piling on too many extra layers.

Who Is This For?
Who Is This NOT For?
Anyone can use it. But if your skin isn’t sensitive, you won’t see as much of a difference.
A see-through bottle with a very small opening that releases just the right amount of product you need. It’s not the prettiest, but it’s practical.
Does Purito Centella Unscented Toner Live Up To Its Claims?
|It makes rough skin caused by external irritation feel smooth and healthy by strengthening the damaged skin barrier with 10% Centella Asiatica Extract while soothing the irritated skin and tightening pores with Witch Hazel Extract.||It soothes skin and makes it a little smoother. But I didn’t see any difference in the size of my pores.|
|This non-irritant essential oil-free Centella toner is the second version of Centella Green Level Calming Toner produced for the skin type that is sensitive to essential oil. |
As an alcohol-free and harsh ingredients-free mild toner, it is suitable for sensitive skin.
|This product strengthens the skin barrier with 10% Centella Asiatica Extract which promotes the synthesis of collagen, as well as with Panthenol.|
The synergy of Madecassoside, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, and Madecassic Acid improves the skin’s elasticity, while the Sodium Hyaluronate ingredient protects the skin from external irritation by forming a healthy moisture barrier.
|Notice how they say the individual ingredients do these things, not the product itself. This can’t single-handedly firm skin.|
