Another winner from Boscia. I use it a couple times a week. It's gentle, has quality ingredients and gets the job done. This hasn't made a noticeable difference in my skin, and due to that I will try other scrubs. But it is a good product, and I may repurchase again later.
I have been using the Boscia for a few months. I can't take any fragrances and if this has any smell it is so slight I can't see it bothering anyone with allergies. I scrub gently and use it every 4 days. It seems to remove the flakes from my very dry forehead and chin without overly drying. I am acne prone even at my age and I don't think it has caused any breakouts at all.I am also prone to milia from oil based moisturizers that block pores and this product does not contribute to milia. It doesn't seem to be oily at all. Other "gentle" scrubs left my face red but this one does not cause any redness. My only complaint is if you take the container into the shower, some water drops can get under the lid so I dry it off with a paper towel when I am done. I use very very little when I use it, you don't need a lot of the product. Overall, it's not drying, it's not moisturizing, it does what I want it doesn't smell or cause breakouts and I am happy and would repurchase.
This scrub has just the right amount of scrubbiness. Some scrubs don't have enough granules, or they're too sharp/rough on the skin. This scrub has plenty of granules that are gentle but still exfoliating. It has a light scent that is typical of Boscia that I really like. My only gripe is that at $25/tube, it's pretty pricey.
This is my holy grail exfoliator. It's gentle enough for daily use. My dermatologist said you can exfoliate daily if it's not irratating your skin. I use this daily in the shower immeadiately after the makeup breakup. I haven't found anything that gets all of the makeup off like this does.
The first time I used this was when I purchased a Boscia starter kit for my acne. For some reason, none of the products did anything for my acne except aggravate it.. but this polish was one of the products I actually liked. It makes my skin feel very soft and smooth after I use it, and it ISN'T HARSH! A lot of exfoliators are too harsh and end up causing my face to flake even more or feel sensitive to the touch.. The grains in this are not heavy and rough.. I wouldn't consider this a great exfoliator for dry-very dry skin, but more as a maintenance product to use 2-3x a week to help skin stay bright and soft.
Wow, I really love this product. I have a few very sensitive areas on my skin and this didn't bother me at all. After just a few uses, my cheek redness decreased a lot and my makeup has been laying better and looking less powdery. I don't even have to use as much makeup because it evened out my skintone so nicely. I give it a BIG thumbs up! One lippy off for being spendy.
I got the Boscia Smoothing Facial Polish as a sample from Sephora. Caudalie is a creamy exfoliant with more effective beads, this one has a light gel texture (reminds me of aloe vera gel) with gentler beads. Again like Caudalie, Boscia products are botanically-based and preservative-free. Interesting tidbit -- they were created by Fancl, the Japanese brand known for their gentle products :)
This scrub is very gentle and light and is perfect for oily and combination skin types. It is an effective cleanser as well, and I prefer this over Caudalie's scrub because creamy products makes me get whiteheads and milia. I would use Boscia in the summer and Caudalie in the winter. At $25, this is not the most economical product in the world, but it is still a quality product. However, I am looking into other alternatives besides scrubs, like Clarisonic Skincare Brush or a microdermabrasion cloth. Means less chemicals being used since you use these with a cleanser.
This product smells good and feels smooth on the skin. Face feels soft after each use. It has very little exfoliation. I almost prefer using this as a cleanser. That says a lot about the exfoliation of this product considering it didn't irritate my sensitive, dry, acne prone skin. If you have the extra cash I recommend use of this product for the mini spa experience. But I do not recommend this product for exfoliation.
I love this scrub. I keep it in the shower - massage it on and rinse under the shower head. The scent is clean and fresh - reminds me of a spa. It is not too abrasive and feels good while I am using it. It has rapidly become a favorite.
I like the fact is gentle enough to use everyday yet I do not like the price, for much less I can make my own and the container is hard to see how much I have left. I will buy this again if am living in a cold weather and working. Although I admit it was reward gift for myself after a hectic semester, so in between getting this or getting a rounds of drinks like some of my classmates to celebrate the end of the semester I decided for this =D for a splurge and a treat.
I deducted two lippies one for the price and the other one is for the packaging.
