pur~lisse Team Favorites + Rituals!

Posted on January 06, 2017 by Jennifer Yen

In this post we are going to be discussing our favorite pur~lisse products and how we use them! Keep reading to get some inside tips!

Jennifer loves the BB Tinted Moist Cream



Founder + Creator

"As a working mom, I'm always crunched on time so I love using the BB Tinted Moist Cream because it's a foundation, moisturizer and SPF all in one! The sugar maple extracts in the formula improves the skin's appearance and keeps it hydrated. The coverage to be buildable while still looking natural, and giving a glowy finish.

I simply apply this to start my makeup routine, building the coverage to whatever occasion I'm doing that day!"




Denise loves the BLUE LOTUS Essential Daily Moisturizer



Lead Graphic Designer + Brand Manager

"My go to product is the Essential Daily SPF 30 moisturizer because it moisturizes my dry skin while also protecting it from the sun. Being Hispanic, I can be very prone to sun damage like sun spots, but thankfully I know that I can prevent that with my holy grail purlisse product. 
The best way that I find works for me is first applying my serum then the SPF 30 moisturizer and finally finishing off with primer for my foundation. After all that complete my normal foundation, concealer and powder routine. 
What I find so great about it is that it doesn't leave the white tint or any flash back in photography if I happen to take any pictures that day. It's great under all my go-to foundations which I find is really important to me. If you haven't tried it before, I strongly recommend it if you want something that moisturizes and protects your skin at the same time!"
Adrienne loves the 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk
Marketing Analyst + Operations Assistant
"I am absolutely in love with the 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk. This product removes all my makeup (even mascara) and leaves my skin feeling amazing and hydrated! Not only does it take off all my makeup, but it smells so good! 
I use the Cleansing Milk morning and night to keep my skin looking and feeling fresh. The Cleansing Milk is soap and sulfate free which is great for people like me with inflamed and acne prone skin; it doesn't irritate my skin at all by stripping my skin of it's natural oils. Once I'm done cleansing my skin I follow up with a toner and the pur~lisse Balancing Moisturizer. This skincare routine leaves my skin looking healthy and glowing.
If you're looking for a new great cleanser, or if you want to give your current cleanser some competition, I would definitely recommend trying the 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk"
Crystal loves the BLUE LOTUS + White Tea 
Executive Assistant

"I am a person who has a very bad dry skin type so I always search of stuff that can moisturize my skin especially before my makeup or bedtime. The Blue Lotus + White Tea & Blue Lotus + Seaweed Treatment Sheet Mask is a good fit for me as it moisturizes my skin so well without feeling overhydrating or oily.

What I love about this sheet mask is that when you take it out from the package, it won’t be dripping but the mask is still completely watery.  I always put on the sheet mask twice a week and let it sit for 15-20 mins(Perfect time for some Youtube video). To get the best absorption, I would use two of my fingers and do a little massage on my face right after I take off the mask.Can anything be better than lying on your bed with a piece of sheet mask on your face after you worked for a whole

Can anything be better than lying on your bed with a piece of sheet mask on your face after you worked for a whole daylong? I highly recommend this Blue Lotus + White Tea and Blue Lotus + Seaweed Treatment Sheet Mask to anyone who wants some relaxation."




Mariane loves the BLUE LOTUS Brightening Serum



Social Media Coordinator

"2016 was a really busy year for me, I finished school, traveled a lot, had a few different jobs, all the change ended up taking a toll on skin and body. During the summer I broke out, even worse than I ever did in high school! It took a few months for my skin to return to its normal self but was left with a lot of scarring and hyper-pigmentation. I began using the Brightening Serum in September and I began seeing a huge difference in texture immediately. The scars also began to fade within the first month of use. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is dealing with acne scars.

I apply the Brightening Serum twice daily. In the morning I will start with my cleanser and follow with the serum before applying the Essential Daily Mositurizer with SPF30 (it's always important to use SPF when fading scars!). At night I do the same right before I go to bed, to ensure I wake up with the best skin."

Posted on December 30, 2016 by Jennifer Yen

Sometimes the smallest positive changes can make the biggest difference. Here are 5 easy and simple resolutions you can improve your well-being in 2017.
Wake up 10 minutes Earlier to Meditate Every Morning

Drink more Water

This may seem like a no-brainer, but drinking enough water is something many of us neglect on a daily basis. One way to get yourself to drink water is to invest in a sturdy water bottle that's easy to travel with you everywhere. Drinking more water helps improve your skin as well. Having it with you is a constant reminder to hydrate throughout the day.
Read one Inspiring Quote a Day

Don't underestimate the power of words, sometimes the simplest advice can motivate you to your full potential every day! No matter what you're facing that day, inspiring words can always make it a little easier. You can get quotes by investing in daily motivational calendars or even following Instagram accounts. 
Protect Your Skin with SPF Everyday

Leaving out a sunscreen or protectant is a common mistake that many of us do on a daily basis. No matter the weather, the sun emits UVA and UVB rays that can cause skin damage, sun spots, and even worse cause a threat of skin cancer. Protect your skin with the BLUE LOTUS Daily Essential Moisturizer with SPF30, especially formulated to prevent giving you the white sun-screen cast.

I'm generally someone who uses a different foundation every day, so it's impossible to get through them. But this, this is amazing and I've been using it every day. It's a beautiful light weight, surprisingly medium coverage formula that looks so beautiful on the skin."

"One of my favourite products in the collection is the pur~lisse Blue Lotus Cleansing Milk. This feels amazing on the face in the morning. It’s great for morning use as it is gentle and leaves skin pure and clean without stripping it. It’s sulfate and soap free as well. Again the Blue Lotus ingredient is an antioxidant powerhouse and the White Tea helps rejuvenate. Monday mornings might be a bit easier to face with this stuff."

pur~lisse Tips & Tricks!

Posted on December 16, 2016 by Jennifer Yen

Here are a few tips & tricks to get the most out of your pur~lisse products!

BLUE LOTUS Sheet Mask Hacks

A photo posted by pur~lisse beauty (@purlisse) on



The Warm - Up

Our masks are meant for the ultimate relaxation to be enjoyed in any season of the year. Although in the middle of winter it's hard to enjoy a cooling mask. Luckily we have a trick to help you use our masks all year long! Warming them up in microwave can help you feel extra comfort in the cold weather while still getting the hydrating properties. Here's how to warm up your sheet mask:

What you'll need:

  • either BLUE LOTUS + White Tea or Seaweed Mask
  • A small microwave safe bowl
  • Microwave


First open the package, without undoing the mask. Stick it in the mask into the bowl, and make sure to add all the serum into the bowl. Put it in the microwave on HIGH for 10 seconds. This should be just long enough for the mask to warm up, without the serum drying up. Once removed the mask will give off a little steam but will cool down as you unwrap it. Pop it on ASAP to fully enjoy the heat! If you're looking for a little more intense heat you can put a mask in for at most, 15 seconds.

The Cool - Down

Heat not your thing? Looking for more of a chill down? You can get the ultimate soothing experience by cooling your mask in the fridge. This is an easy way to feel the intense spa experience while relaxing at home. 


Before work stick your mask in the fridge and when you come back home you can pop it on for instant relaxation! Short on time? You can put your mask in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, just don't forget to take it out!

BLUE LOTUS 4-in-1 Eye-Adore Serum 

A photo posted by pur~lisse beauty (@purlisse) on


Looking for a more intensive eye treatment? Use our Eye Adore serum to make your own DIY eye masks! This makes for a perfect weekly ritual, or a fast way to relieve some puffiness. 

What you'll need: 

  • 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Paper towels


First, you're going to want to measure the area beneath your eye to find out how long side of the pad. Once measured you can trace out the shape on one side of the paper towel, we found that making a triangle was the best shape for this. Once you're happy with the shape, fold the paper towel in half and with clean scissors cut the shape out. Now you're going to quickly soak the pads in water, and it works well with either cold or hot water. Squeeze out the water and your pads are ready for the serum! Use half a pump and rub them together to spread the product evenly. Pop them on and you're done! We recommend leaving them on for 2-5 minutes.

Daily Lip Nourisher

So you know that our Lip Nourisher works amazing as a moisture and lip treatment, but it can also be used as a way to hydrate your cuticles! This works as a great prep before cleaning or painting your nails.

What you need:

  • Lip Nourisher
  • Cotton swabs


Squeeze some product on onto the cotton swab and apply liberally around the cuticles. Leave this treatment on for at least 5 minutes. For a more intensive treatment, you can apply before bed to wake up to hydrated cuticles.


BLUE LOTUS Balancing Moisturizer

It's important to use products that can double up and that's exactly what our BLUE LOTUS Balancing Moisturizer can do for you! Its gel-like consistency smoothes your skin and leaves it ready for your makeup routine. 


Right after cleansing your skin, pat dry with a towel. Take a pea-sized amount of the BLUE LOTUS Balancing Moisturizer and dot over your face. Spread evenly, and you're all ready to go!

How To Take Care of Your Skin While Traveling

Posted on December 03, 2016 by Jennifer Yen

With the holidays coming up, there is probably a huge chance that traveling is part of your plans. Even in the midst of crazy plans, we can't forget to take part in our skin routine. Here are some things to think about when traveling and how to best go about it for the sake of your precious skin.
Prep: Within the week prior to your trip, you should incorporate a hydrating and balancing face mask 1-2 times.  Try using the Blue Lotus + Seaweed Mask for the ultimate healthiest complexion.  This will ensure skin clarity for your trip, making you ready for any plans right when you land.  It is also important to keep skin hydrated in preparation for a long flight or drive.  Using an intense moisturizer like the Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer will help prevent skin from drying out, while also protecting you from UVA and UVB rays with SPF 30.

On the Way: Whether taking a plane, train or automobile, keep your essentials near.  Take the TSA approved Hello Winter Beauty kit with you for perfect on the go skincare. If you prefer an anti-aging route, we have the Ageless & Beautiful Jet Set Starter Kit just for you!  During the middle of long flights, it is important to refresh your skin with another round of moisturizer and prep the skin with SPF before you step off the plane. We love the BLUE LOTUS Balancing Moisturizer to rehydrate the skin after long hours in high altitudes  Sleeping during a flight will also allow the products to sink into the skin.

Our jet set #skincare sets are the perfect travel companion! 💖✈️

During Your Stay: Staying hydrated is very important so drinking water is a must.  When planning your trip, checking the weather of your destination will also indicate what products to bring.  Taking the BB Tinted Moist Cream will keep your skin hydrated and acts as a "one and done" solution when trying to stay on schedule during the trip.
