Purito Plainet Squalane Oil Review

This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Purito

I have combination skin, which means that some areas are oily, so I stayed away from any extra oils for years. Now I know that all oils are different, and some work quite well for my skin.

Purito Plainet Squalane Oil is a one ingredient product (just 100% squalane). Their squalane is derived from sugarcane (cruelty free and vegan) and is lightweight and moisturizing. Squalane is naturally present in human skin (should we start a drinking game for each time I type “squalane”?). Adding a little extra from an external source can help soften the skin, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and help with dryness and dehydration.

The oil is available on YesStyle (use my code KBHOBBIT under “reward code” to get extra savings) and Amazon (sold by the brand).

How to use:

  • Cleanse the skin

  • Use a toner, serums and / or treatments

  • Moisturize (optional)

  • Apply a few drops of the Purito oil

  • Finish off with sunscreen (if using in the morning)

You can also add a few drops of the oil into your moisturizer to make it more nourishing. The Painet oil works well on the body (massage into moist skin after bathing) and hair (apply to the ends).

I use mine a little differently - I apply it after serums but before moisturizer. I know that the order of oil application (before vs after moisturizer) is a somewhat debated topic. I generally follow Dr Dray’s advice on it, plus my own experimentation. Before moisturizer works best for my skin. Play around with it and see what you like best. I only use the oil at night.

I have been testing Purito Plainet Squalane Oil for over a month and am ready to share my thoughts.

My impressions

This is a lovely product that should work for most, if not all, people. It’s naturally free of fragrance and essential oils, making it very unlikely to cause any unwanted reactions.

I use just a few drops on the face several times a week. It softens the dry areas without congesting or overwhelming the oilier ones. I have noticed that my forehead lines look less noticeable, and the dry flakey areas are a lot more balanced.

I have also used this on the body. However, I prefer to save it for the face, because I really like it. The body typically gets whatever I don’t love for the face (sorry, body!).

Overall, another great product from Purito. I’m really not surprised. I have followed this brand since their humble beginnings, when they offered three serums with stick-on labels and nobody seemed to know who they were. Now, it’s basically a household name in the Asian beauty fan circles. I love watching them evolve and grow. I’m not even mad at Purito over the sunscreen thing - I really do not think it was malice from the brand, especially since so many others were affected as well. And I think Purito handled the whole thing very well. They took the brunt of the consumer outrage simply because they were the first brand whose sunscreens came under scrutiny.
