We have a lot of beauty obsessed readers out there and today, I’m thrilled to tell you all about one of the newer and most buzzed about lines out there, pūr~lisse. Launched in the fall of 2008, this line centers around their patent-pending secret, the Lotus Lupine Peptide Complex, and can be found in the bathrooms, travel bags and vanities of those in the know in the beauty industry. I’ve tested hundreds of creams, serums and balms, from drugstore bargains to high-end items that cost more than my monthly utilities and I can tell you, I was impressed with the effectiveness and quality of the pūr~lisse products. You can read my review and those of the lucky testers that tried pūr~lisse in the comments section of this post. First, let’s take a look at the background and concept of this innovative company.
Pūr~lisse, which translates to “pure” and “smooth” in French, was founded by Jennifer Yen, a working actress (and one time Power Ranger!) that found her sensitive skin was suffering from the “damaging effects of bright lights and heavy makeup” common to the industry. To compound the problem, Jennifer was dismayed to discover many of her beauty product standards only added to the irritation. Soon Jennifer began a quest to create products that were both effective and delicate enough for even the most sensitive skin.
Jennifer spent over three years researching and developing her products, which are based on her grandmother’s time-tested Chinese beauty rituals coupled with modern French skincare technology. The result was pūr~lisse’s “unique patent-pending secret; the Lotus Lupine Peptide Complex. This age-prevention complex formula combines powerful antioxidants, Chinese plant extracts, French marine plants, vitamins, and peptides to keep skin beautiful, healthy, and young-looking.” Lotus Lupine Peptide Complex contains five key ingredients working together to protect and enhance your skin; Lupine Peptides (which stimulate vascular growth, cellular activity, and cell oxygenation while increasing skin smoothness), Blue Lotus Flower (contains antioxidant properties that stimulate circulation while providing soothing and calming relief for inflamed skin) White Tea (discovered in China more than 5,000 years ago, White Tea is the most antioxidant-rich of all teas and defends skin from stress, and cellular damage), Soy Proteins (offers superior anti-irritant properties, increasing the skin’s ability to retain moisture and helps produce Collagen and Elastin), and SeaSilk (protects skin from environmental damage, helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and provides skin firmness).
Wow! I love the combination of up to the moment technology and time proven Chinese remedies. To top if off, the entire pūr~lisse line is free of paraben-preservatives, petrochemicals, propylene-glycol, chemical colors and fragrance – oh and of course, are cruelty-free. Whatever your skin care needs, this carefully edited line of eight effective products can help protect your skin from damage and aging while visibly brightening your skin tone. Our members will be filling you in on these four products:
pur-protect spf 30 – Finally, a spf 30 product that doesn’t feel (or smell) like one! Absorbs completely and contains White Tea to sooth delicate facial skin.
