this BB cream SUCKS! sucky coverage-- no point in even applying it on my face as it doesn't cover jack sh*t. The color is supposed to be universal but doesn't match my skintone. This BB cream was super pricey too. Totally regret buying it.
A solution to your color problems!
Okay first of all it makes me sad to see all you women bashing this product because it turns you unusual colors. Well heres the thing, looks like you guys didn't read the back which states : APPLY LIBERALLY 15 MINUTES BEFORE SUN EXPOSURE. So if you ladies are putting this on and going into an extreme light change yes, it will turn out botchy and colorful! For self adjusting shades they need to sit in the same colored light or area for at least 15 minutes. For me since i know how it works, I love it. It makes my skin glow and helps moisturize it, I use this for a sunscreen and on days where my skin needs a pick me up.
First off let me just tell the reviewer who only likes the Asian brands Boscia is an Asian brand they're actually from Japan. On to the review I really like this bb because the texture is like a mousse to me it evens out skintone very well if you apply it lightly like a foundation it's fast and easy to apply blends well lasts all day great coverage I even noticed my milia diminish and I love this as a primer it makes my crappy MAC select SPF look amazing and we all know how crappy that foundation is hence why it was discontinued so yeah it's a great bb cream I highly recommend it!
This product was such a disappointment!
First, when I squeezed the BB cream out, a clear watery liquid came out! Ew! I'm not sure what that was, but it was odd. I'll admit that I liked the thick creamy texture, but that's about it.
I applied this on my face with a brush and it turned my face orange!!! It didn't self-adjust at all. Don't waste your money, this is a horrible product.
I really wanted to like this because the coverage was great for a BB cream but it was so orange and greasy I had to wash it off! I'm so glad it was a sample or else I would be out $30.
I dove into the world of BB Cream via this one, and it was definitely not ideal.
- Light, minimal coverage
- Tinted ORANGE!
- Feels makeuppy
I've used Skin79's BB Cream and a few other Asian brand BB Creams. I've also given a few American-based brands' BB Creams a chance. Honestly, the American BB Creams just don't live up to the hype about BB Creams. The texture is always off, the color is off, and the benefits are never as good as the Asian ones. This Boscia cream is a poor excuse for a BB Cream. One review on Sephora even said to dab water on your face before putting this on...? Why would I want to go through all that extra trouble for an overpriced BB Cream anyway? I'm going to stick with the Asian brand BB Creams which have far better benefits such as anti-aging, better oil control, better COVERAGE, SPF, lightening effects (helps with my redness), better texture, and just one swipe one and they're done. Sorry, Boscia. Nice try.
I think it really depends on your chemistry to know if this product will work for you. I have very oily skin, NC15/Bobbi Brown Porcelain and this worked very well on me. It is gray-pink on application, but blending it in makes it seep in and match my skin tone. It absorbs into my skin instead of sitting on top of it.I haven't experienced any breakouts yet, although I'm not discounting it.
I bought it with the Boscia travel sized skin regimen. I think as a step within that team products, this works very well and I'm happy with it. It's perfect for summer and for travel.
I have Celtic porcelain skin with rosacea. I use a moisturizer on my skin after cleansing and then I put on this BB cream. I absolutely love the smooth finish I get from it. I have not seen any orange oxidation, glitter, or chalky blobs (sorry to be rude). I just love the texture and protection that this Boscia BB cream gives me. I am going to Central Europe in a couple of weeks and will take this cream with me to wear during the long days of touring. Edit****This product broke me out and made my face burn like like a sunburn. I deducted lippies and will never buy again.
When I got this sample from Sephora I was excited to try it. I had only used Garniers Bb cream and wanted to try others. I sampled it on my hand first and wasn't impressed. The amount of shimmer was very noticeable and made me a little nervous to put it on my face. It also looked really dark and grey in tone to me. Another thing was that it felt tight on my skin when I rubbed it in. I decided to try it out anyway. I chose a day that I would be out in the sun because it has a high SPF and I don't typically like wearing foundations with high SPF's. I applied it with a Siigma Sigmax round top Kabuki sprayed slightly with some of MAC's fix plus. It was difficult to apply this way but as I buffed it in with the brush it looked better and better. The consistency of this product is very weird, like a mousse? I'm not sure. I used concealer over it under my eyes and on some blemishes and it blended well. I then powdered my face with Tarte's finishing powder and it looked nice. It wore well throughout the day and didn't oxidize like others have said. Not sure I f I would buy this again or if I would buy another brand. It did not break me out which is a plus.
