I received this as a sample from Sephora and was looking forward to trying it, since I have been very happy with other Boscia products and am always looking for the perfect BB cream, I applied this and looked in the mirror - and was shocked to see that my skin was now a deep tan, as if I had over-applied a bronzer! The packaging said that this cream adjusts to different skin types - it may work if you have a medium to dark complexion, but not if you have light skin, as I do.
Glittery mess! Didn't notice the glitter in the store maybe because of the awful lighting in Sephora. Tried it for the first time today. Went on smoothly, looked very nice, didn't notice the orange tint that previous reviewers described, but holy cow my face was a disco ball. Total fail........
Amazing! I have tried a ton of BB creams (expensive and drug store brands) and this one is by far my favorite. it blends in extremely well and stays put forever. Also you get more for your money than most of the other BB creams at Sephora.
I've been using the Boscia BB Cream for the past week and I really like it. I have combination skin that gets really oily on the forehead, and this actually keeps the shine in control, a bit of powder or even blotting paper helps with the mid day shine. It also minimizes pores a bit, which is a plus for me. People with very fair skin, this product won't work for you, on my skin color is perfect because I'm slightly tan.
If you have pale skin, do NOT buy this! Boscia claims that this BB cream is a one-size-fits-all that will adjust to your skin tone, but if you are pale it will give your face an unnatural light tan. As an added bonus, the BB cream also leaves your face with an orange-ish tint that, to copy a previous reviewer, kind of makes you look like an Oompa Loompa.
So I originally got a sample of this from Sephora and it was awful. The formula was very dark and had an oily glitter that had separated from it but I heard such good things so I tried it anyways. It applied orange and very glittery which was AWFUL.
Ok that being said my friend talked me into buying the full size insisting the samples were nothing like the product. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The stuff in the bottle was not as dark or glittery. I found out that this stuff is best applied with clean fingers...it color adjusts and if you use a brush/sponge it turns orangey and such. I have VERY pale skin and it was slightly dark at first but adjusted after about 10 minutes and then looked slightly dewy and very natural. It is only light coverage but does cover minor imperfections and didn't break me out.
With Sephora's great return policy I say give it a try. If you dislike it you can always return it. The only reason I would not repurchase it is because there are 3 other bb creams I love and have full sizes of and are a lower price point.
Consistency is smooth and blends into skin quickly and easily. I agree that the pigmentation is a bit orangey or warm for fair skin once it's applied. However, if I correct with a concealer or Dr. Jart bb cream, or even a lighter toned foundation, I can create a fairly dewy finish. I like the sunscreen factor and it doesn't break me out, and there aren't many foundation or face products I can say that about. I think it will be a staple for me for summer.
I got a sample of this from Sephora and WTF it spreads like cottage cheese. I really have no idea how this product made it to market like this. Maybe the bottle that my sample was from was old? It was just a ridiculous, clumpy, mess. I tried it once and the effect was so bad and so immediate that I rinsed it off and threw the rest of the sample away.
The reviewer from one review down is absolutely correct. This colour adjusts to a deep orange on your face (I am a NC35). It looks obvious and almost like a bad spray tan. The medium coverage is ok, I didn't mind the texture, though it is quite thick compared to Missha. The colour is way off so there's no way I'll repurchase.
I got several samples of this in my last Sephora order because I had asked for Tarte BB samples and I guess they were out so they sub'ed this 1.
Color; I'm NC 25-30 and this went rather warm and orangish on me so hardly a 1 color fits all. I doubt whether someone lighter could easily pull this off.
Texture: Felt tacky and rubbery on my skin even over heavy moisturizer. Just not a fan of the feel. There is micro-fine shimmer in this but without this would be super flat on the skin.
Coverage: Medium coverage. I've had foundations look lighter than this yet didn't cover some healing breakouts. Also made me look swarthy and tree-like so not a good look for maturing skin (or at least my maturing skin) in my opinion.
The positives is that this did not break out or irritate my super sensitive skin with rosacea but if this is what a BB cream is all about I'll stick with a tinted moisturizer. This made my skin look like a puffy piece of orange leather.
