The magazine focuses on full-body wellness. Cristina wrote on the magazine’s online about page that her fixation with wellness came after she became a mother. The magazine’s description reads;

“Wellness is no longer an indulgence, it’s a necessity. The time is right for a good cleanse. I’m not just talking about a juice cleanse, I’m talking about mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and yes, physically too… The Purist is the place to discover ways to refine and define the life you seek. Here, you will find strength, equilibrium, peace of mind, lots of laughter, and loads of love.”

Cristina has been quite successful with Purist since its launch. Celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson and Viggo Mortensen have featured in the magazine.
