Masks -Boscia -Luminizing Black Mask

OK, I purchased this product a week ago and I’ve been using it as suggested on the packaging (1-2 weeks). I have noticed a slight difference in my skin but not enough to be worth the $45 CAN (the retail price at Sephora). First of all, you need to apply a generous layer of product to the face so it can dry and peel correctly. I find that the amount of product needed is a lot, so you’re not getting many uses out of the bottle. I’ve used it a few times and think I’m about 3/4 through. So, the value isn’t great for the little product you’re getting. Secondly, the smell is BAD. It reminds me of the white school glue we all used as children. I felt like I was putting glue on my face. I don’t know what it is, but something in this product makes my eyes sting terribly. I have to close my eyes if I’m using this mask because it legit feels like I’m chopping onions. I’ve read tons of reviews online where many people complained about the same thing. The bottom line is, it’s an expensive school glue that hurts really bad. Yes, my face feels slightly nicer. I feel like it might remove some whiteheads, blackheads or other gunk lurking in my pores but not as much as a good clay mask like Queen Helene’s Mint Julep (a fraction of the cost of Boscia’s mask) or GlamGlow if you’re feeling fancy. The peel off option is what drew me the most to this mask because it’s easy to remove compared to the hassle of washing your face. But even then, I find it was difficult to peel off around the edges and I had to use cotton pads and toner to scrub the bits that didn’t come off. Save your money and your tears, buy a good clay mask that would do the job more effectively - not a fancy school glue.

Cleansers -Boscia -Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil-Balm

Texture is kind of hard to work with, feels like you are rubbing wax on your face and you have to tug and pull it around, it doesn’t “melt” with skin contact like other cleansing balms would. It does do an amazing job at removing makeup I must say, I’m left with a squeaky clean face. I ended up returning this because once I incorporated this into my routine, I was waking up everyday with new tiny whiteheads all over my face, especially on my under eyes and eye lids.

Misc Beauty Tools -Boscia -Konjac Cleansing Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal

this thing sucks!!! its the same as just using your fingers imo. did not get rid of dead skin..did nothing at all!!!! i gave it around a month-- just to be fair. and THAT was just a waste of time because it didn't do a thing at all!!!
a big waste of $$ to me. not sure what its for...maybe for ppl with uber sensitive skin or something.
the charcoal also didnt do anything either.
will NOT be repurchasing.

Moisturizers -Boscia -Cactus Water Moisturizer

on 6/24/2018 11:52:00 AM

Boscia recently released it's new Cactus Water Moisturizer and I was able to get several mini-sizes to try out. First of all, the texture of the Cactus Water Moisturizer is so amazing and very much a gel or jelly texture. It smooths over face easily and absorbs quickly. The formula that they have used for this moisturizer is also high in quality, they have included antioxidants, emollients, moisturizers, and a couple peptides. I also love that this is fragrance free and really has no scent. The disappointment is that Boscia chose to package this in a jar which exposed all these impressive ingredients to expose to light and air which causes these good ingredients to degrade from the first time you use it. For as much as this costs they could afford to use much more effective packaging.

Masks -Boscia -Charcoal Pore Pudding

This looked cool in the jar and I was excited to try it given rave reviews. But this is was a big no for me. It was really difficult to spread, and leaves your face looking like it was smeared in coal. If it works, that's fine by me. But I didn't notice any benefits, and what's more my skin began to break out the days following the treatment. My skin is somewhat breakout-prone, but pimples were popping up in spots where I rarely get them. So if you are at all breakout prone I would be apprehensive about this one.
