Pur~Lisse Pur~Protect SPF 30 Essential Daily Moisturizer Review

 Pur~Lisse says "stay protected with pure flower power. Our unique peptide complex, Lotus Lupine 5 and Hydra-Shield Complex boasts superior, full spectrum sun protection in a lightweight, nourishing moisturizer. Skin is pampered and protected against premature aging caused my the day's rays." The Pur~Protect SPF 30 Essential Daily Moisturizer contains 50ml (1.7 fl oz) and costs $55. I received a generously sized sample in my July Ipsy Bag. Pur~Lisse is a cruelty free, vegan friendly brand. This moisturizer was made in America.

Pur~Lisse has a very cute packaging style. This moisturizer comes in an opaque, white squeeze tube with a delicate silver floral print. The Pur~Lisse logo is printed on the front of the tube in cornflower blue letters. The back of the tube offers directions and a list of this product's benefits. All Pur~Lisse packaging is recyclable. 
The Pur~Lisse Pur~Protect SPF 30 Essential Daily Moisturizer is a hydrating chemical sunscreen that is formulated for normal to dry skin. I love that this moisturizer offers broad spectrum sun protection, and hyaluronic acid, but I also find a few ingredients questionable. Pur~Lisse boasts about this product's plant extract packed formula and that's great...but a sunscreen that contains potentially damaging, photo-reactive citrus extracts is kinda silly. This moisturizer is white and light in consistency, it sinks in quickly and leaves behind a satin finish with no white cast. The Pur~Protect Essential Daily Moisturizer provides light hydration, really nothing noteworthy. Though this moisturizer is fragrance free, it has an interesting scent - a mix of sunscreen and licorice - definitely something different. This SPF 30 moisturizer provides adequate sun protection. I've spent a fair bit of time outside the last two weeks and have had no sign of sunburn. 

Pur~Lisse's Pur~Protect Essential Daily Moisturizer is a nice, lightweight moisturizer with good sun protection, but its honestly nothing special or unique. Packaging is cute, the only thing that helps this product stand out. Is this product worth $55? Heck no! You can find very similar products for a fraction of that price. It was nice to try, but this product is just too expensive for what it does.
