Cleansers -Boscia -MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil

on 10/18/2018 9:51:00 PM

Somehow it's the products you use over & over that you don't think to review. I've been using this product consistently for about 3 years, repurchasing without even really thinking about it, and I can't believe I haven't left a review!

Anyway, I'm going to try to keep this brief because my reviews get out of control. So! My skin is:

36
Dehydrated, generally
Has rosacea
Clogs just by existing

This cleansing oil is perfect for me because I don't have the dedication to double cleanse but I really have to due to the clogging and the fact that I wear heavy sunscreen daily. Makeup Breakup takes everything off! Even eye makeup, though sometimes I need a little micellar to get really tenacious mascara off. I will sometimes swipe the micellar water over my face as well and the only times I see face makeup come off on the cotton pad are the times I was really quick and haphazard with the Boscia.

If you want to double cleanse but can't find a duo that works for you, or you're a working mom who's often too tired/can't be bothered to do fancy skincare steps, you need to try this!



Treatments (Face) -Boscia -Exfoliating Peel Gel

This product is a waste of time, money and energy. I purchased it for about $45 CAN (expensive) at Sephora. I tried the product at the store and, like many, was in awe at seeing "my skin peeling away". At home, I'd apply a small amount onto my skin and start running. Immediately, I realize that this "gel" turns into a liquid quickly and starts dripping. My skin appears to "peel". After removing the "balls" from my face, my skin feels smooth and bright. There may be exfoliating ingredients in the Peel Gel, but I find it gimmicky. The product starts balling up before I rub it into my skin properly. I've used products before that do visibly exfoliate the skin using fruit acids - the best would be Jelly Apple Peeling Gel by the Face Shop. Fraction of the price, more product, works AMAZINGLY.

This is too expensive for the amount of product you're getting, turns into a runny, liquid-y mess AND looks like it deceives people into thinking that it's really removing tons of dead skin while it's just product balling up. Do not recommend.

Cleansers -Boscia -Gel to Mousse Cleanser

on 10/7/2018 1:41:00 AM

This cleanser was a big miss for me. The cleanser itself would have been fine as my summer cleanser when my skin is oilier. Although it was suitable for that specific purpose—it dried-out my skin a bit—I found the smell of this unscented formula barely tolerable. Moreover, the dispenser is a disaster. It’s impossible to control the amount of product that comes out. The instructions on the can say “pump a small amount,” but, as you may notice in the other reviewer’s video, the pump isn’t easy to operate. I had to use so much force to press the pump, often bracing the bottom of the can against the counter, that I inevitably dispensed 3 or 4 times the amount I needed, or more. Very wasteful. And after you dispense the gel and replace the big plastic dome cap, apparently the product continues to emerge into the cap and turn to foam. So the next time you open the cap, it’s full of foam and the plastic pump is covered with foam. Messy! And more wasteful. Boscia’s packaging engineers really screwed-up on this one.


Cleansers -Boscia -Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil-Balm

I've tried this makeup-melting balm for two weeks now can confidently say it's horrible for acne prone skin (which I have). I had mild acne before and wanted to try double cleansing with an oil instead of my regular neturogena wipes, and boy was that a mistake trying this. The balm spreads just fine on my face, it couldn't remove my layered mascara and liner (which is, you know, the point of a melting makeup balm) and I always had to use an eye-makeup remover after. It did, however, rinse off really well and I never felt like there was any residue left on my face, but still washed my face again with my neutrogena cleanser. After just 2 days of using it I was left with massive cystic-like acne on my forehead (which I never break out there) and cheeks. I stopped using it two days ago and all my acne has disappeared again, minus two bumps on my chin. It doesn't melt makeup, and it gives you acne. That's a no from me!

Moisturizers -Boscia -Cactus Water Moisturizer

foto

I received a sample of this in my Sephora box and have to say... I would never buy this. This moisturizer is a light gel-cream without much scent at all. It goes on feeling cool and slimy, and in a few minutes, it dries, leaving a sticky and filmy finish. My skin feels tight and occluded, and still dry. This, to me, hardly qualifies as a moisturizer so I don’t know what its function is. Pass!
