Absolutely fantastic, not only does it releave clogged pores, but any blemish, even if it is just first appearing can be drained instantly when the mask is applied as a spot treatment. You will love the luminosity it brings to the skin and the smooth texture repeated use provides. For oily skin pair a once a week treatment with a daily cleanse with their black cleanser.

This mask promises to detoxify, purify, and brighten. While I wouldn't say my face looks "brighter" after using it, my skin certainly feels cleaner and smoother. If my skin appears clogged or I suspect I might break out I apply this mask and it seems to soothe and clear it.
Unlike other reviewers, my sensitive skin and I (yes, the two of us) did not find this mask painful to remove. Just make sure you apply the mask a little thicker around the edges so you'll have an easy to peel starting point.
This mask doesn't contain parabens or sulfates, which I'd kind of expect it not to since it's kiiiiind of expensive.
The packaging is blah.
Pretty good mask, though.

As far as peel off masks go I really like this one. It does take a while to dry but it really pulled off any dead skin/extra oil/sucked stuff outta my pores. I haven't noticed a reduction in pore size but I will tell you it made my skin feel super super clean. I have other clay masks for deeeep cleaning if I need it but for just a once a week or so treatment I enjoy this one. I will say if you don't like peel off masks or the feeling of peeling them off you won't like this. It is painful if you have sensitive skin (which I do not) but keep that in mind if you are sensitive to pain or things like biore strips.
One note: if you have some lingering bits of mask left on your face...use a makeup remover wipe...comes right off no pain no tugging.

I had high hopes and was really excited to run to Sephora and purchase this mask despite the RIDICULOUS price tag. The first and last time I applied this mask, there were no results. no good result, no bad result = nothing & waste. I have an oily t-zone with large pores. It was cool to peel the mask off, but I didn't find or feel that it pulled out anything from my pores. I returned this IMMEDIATELY. I now use the Origins clay mask which was my back-up to the Boscia one. I recommend the Origins clay mask over this one for people who want the dirt and clogged pores to REALLY be cleaned and sucked out.

Loved it! Gave my skin a fresh look.

The 1st time I saw this mask was on either QVC or HSN. There was a demonstration & when the mask was removed it showed the actual pores size & dirt from the skin. The 1st time I used it, I probably did not apply a thick enough layer. So, the 2nd time, I applied more. I wouldn't apply too thick of a layer though. I start @ the forehead, nose, cheeks, & chin. Make sure the mask dries throughly. When removing, begin @ the forehead. Loosen the edges & peel "downwards". Rinse w/lukewarm water & pat dry. After removing the mask, I checked to see if there was any dirt & or pore size in the mask. Didn't see a whole lot of anything. On the other hand, I do not have large pores. :) I would of liked this mask more if there was a cool & tingling feeling. Origins sold a clay mask that was cool & tingling. This was many years ago so, I don't know if they still sell it. This Boscia Luminizing Black Mask is ok...sort of expensive. :( Not sure if I'd buy it again.
Ok, this is an update on the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask. I used this mask for the 3rd time tonight. I applied a decent amount but, not thick @ all. It took about 25 minutes to dry. After peeling it off, I rinsed my face w/lukewarm water. My skin looked like it was glowing!! My skin felt very clean & smooth. Then I did my evening regimen of eye cream & moisturizer. I still think this mask is sort of expensive. I am still on the fence about repurchasing.

this is by far the best mask i have ever tried.i got a sample from a store and will now buy the mask for sure. a lot of reviews i read it seems that the girls dont know how to properly use a peel off mask. when used correctly (apply a thin layer and wait til completely dry before peeling off) the results are amazing. my skin never felt and looked better after using this mask. it had this silky feel to it and i just looked a lot younger. i love this product!

I remember using the original mask a few years ago and loving it. I decided to give the new one a whirl and got a sample from Sephora. I first tried it on my nose alone, nothing happened. Then the second time I tried it on my face, and nothing happened. The third time I tried it and peeled it off my skin was RED. Like red for a few hours. :/
I guess I don't really enjoy peel off masks as you're pulling at the skin, and this was no exception. For people who say that they can't get the mask off properly, apply a layer and most importantly let it dry for a full 10-15 minutes; the thicker the layer, the more the drying time will be. Then pull off from the sides/bottom/forehead of face. Literally peel inwards around your whole face and the mask will come off in big chucks. The rest of the residue you can take off with a warm washcloth. Suffice to say this mask this time around was not for me, and didn't do anything for my pores either and just made my skin red. Ugh!

I had a lot of expectations when I got this product, having seen it in Sephora, on websites with good reviews. However, the mask did nothing for my skin, except for give me redness and irritate my sensitive skin. The mask was gooey, wouldn't dry and wouldn't peel off.

I LOVE this mask! It's very pricey but I believe it's worth it. I had been wanting this product for a long time and finally for my birthday my sisters got it for me and I've never been happier! I've tried it out twice and I have not had any reactions, as in breakouts or rashes, on my face. Instead my skin felt cleaner after applying the mask. When I was watching online tutorials of this product I saw people's skin become 'lighter' but this was not the case for me, my skin just felt fresh that's all. I did see dirt from my face after peeling off the mask, the black background of the mask helps to identify it. I have a pretty oily face so the Boscia mask eliminates any dirt that has accumulated due to the oil. I'm only using this once a week though, it's expensive and when I apply the product on the face I use a lot of it since it has a thick consistency and needs to be applied generously on the face to achieve the best results. It hurts a little when I peel it off but it's not unbearable. Overall, it's a good product! :)

I'm sort of on the fence with this product. I read some conflicting reviews on here on how to apply it. I've used it 3 times now, and it has worked best for me when I've applied a thin layer. I would recommend starting out with a very thin layer, and then deciding after your first use whether to use more product the next time.
It is a messy mask. I have been able to peel it all off in one attempt, however in the areas where the product had not completely dried up and/or peeled off, when removing it, it got under my nails and into my cuticles. It took a lot of scrubbing to remove it from my hands/nails. Also, be prepared to clean your sink (not rinse, wipe down clean) after using this mask. It will leave remnants.
I found that I had to leave the mask on for longer than the recommended time. It took a long time to dry, well over 20 minutes.
Be sure when using it to wait until it has completely dried all over your face before attempting to remove it. The mask is a real pain to get off if it hasn't completely dried, and as I mentioned earlier, if it isnít completely dry it will get under your nails and muck up your sink.
As for the results, it did not brighten my skin at all, but it DID clean out some of my pores. I feel as though the mask is a tad harsh, ever so slightly. Each time I use it, afterwards my skin (face) feels slightly hot and sensitive to the touch for about a day, almost like I've gotten too much sun, but not sun burnt, just tender.
My skin is naturally on the oilier side. One thing I have noticed when using the mask is that my skin will get really oily later on in the day, definitely oilier than I would usually get.
So, I'm still undecided on this product. On one hand I like that it cleans my pores. On the other hand, it can be a pain to remove, it can be messy, and makes my skin sensitive for a day.
The sensitive skin part is what really makes me not want to repurchase. Again, the tenderness is tolerable and nothing major, but I'm wary of any products that leave your skin red, tender, or that causes your skin to give off heat. I think I could live with the messiness if the product delivered what it promised, and more importantly, if it did not make my skin feel tender. I will likely not repurchase it, but I will use it until I've finished the tube.

I've been looking for a good clay/peel off mask and hoped this would fit the bill. I use it regularly, about once per week. After half a year, I'm still not sure about it's oil control/pore unclogging abilities but it sure looks cool. Another reviewer said it best --it's like glorified tape. While it does boast some good ingredients (witch hazel, kaolin clay), it's not enough to justify the price for the quality. There's not much to add to other reviewers' comments except that the fumes sting your eyes even when it's nowhere near it. I'd buy it again, only because I can't find anything better.

I missed this mask enough to re-purchase a second tube. I love how it tightens and smooths out my skin, my face really does feel quite soft after using this. It isn't a miracle worker, but it does me more good than harm, so I enjoy it now and then. I have to say though, if you have any peach fuzz on your face... I would avoid this! The first time I used it I had peach fuzz on my face, oh my goodness this ripped right out, haha! My face felt so itchy afterwards too, aaaah. I personally have nothing against shaving away my peach fuzz once in awhile, and I make sure I do before I use this!

The first time I tried this masque, I didn't know how to peel it off so I washed it off. There was NO difference.
The second time, I peeled from my upper lip and figured out how to peel it from my whole face. I have used this mask a total of 4 times and I still have some left.
I read some reviews that say to put a lot/a little of it on your face. I put a lot put it dried into a thin layer.
My face did look a bit brighter but that was it. It feels and looks exactly the same as before I used the mask. Mind you, I exfoliated and cleansed before using the mask.

While I loved the concept of a peeling mask it did not work for me at all. My eyes burned the entire time the mask was on... I had not even applied the mask near my eyes. Despite this fact, I used it several times just to give it a chance. It did not seem to remove any blackheads from my skin and was a pain to take off. At the very least it did not break out my skin. I would not buy it again.

Works no better than WAY cheaper strips/masks from any drugstore, totally paying for hype and marketing here, not an amazing product. Burns the eyes as you apply so almost need a friend to help. Takes forever to dry and you have to apply just the right amount...too little and it does nothing and hurts to remove, too much and it never dries and you waste money and time. This may be a great product for some, but I was not impressed, almost $40 for a tiny tube that lasts less than 20 uses is not worth it IMO.
Avoid if you have sensitive eyes/allergies!

This is AMAZING! It is *crucial* to apply this correctly otherwise it will either not peel properly or it will be thick and not dry properly. You only need a thin opaque layer, not a big goopy layer. Not wanting to offend anyone, but if someone doesn't apply properly and then complains about the product, it's not an accurate review. This mask cleans my pores right out, exfoliates, and makes my skin luminous. I have also gotten at least 10 uses out of my tube so far. If you get less than 5 uses at LEAST, you are using waaaaay too much product. I will repurchase.

I was looking for peeling masks because my local stores stopped selling Queen Helene products. The Sephora saleswoman recommended this product. I was little iffy with the price because Queen Helene's only three bucks and this is freaking $35!
Well, it didn't do anything and didn't make my skin glowing or feeling soft. The texture is horribly thick and it is hard to squeeze it out of the tube. I only used three masks and the tube was already gone. 3 masks for $35? Definitely not worth.

This mask is phenomenal. It is a peel-off, so steer clear of hair and eyebrows-it will hurt to pull off of those. After 20 minutes, it is dry and ready to peel. I didn't think the peeling was harsh or hard on my skin. And the mask did not set off a reaction in my very sensitive skin. I was floored by how much refinement in texture and decrease in pimple size this mask gave in such a short amount of time. It is pricey, but for such great results I would definitely repurchase.

my skin has been doing unusual things this past year. Super dry in the NYC fall, winter, and spring, and oily as hell during the summer. There is no balance, no middle ground. Acne comes around whenever it wants. I cut out sweets, sugar, milk from my diet in order to get my skin and body under control. This mask has been a constant and helps my skin bring out the nasty stuff before it becomes some ridiculous pustule on my face. I use it once a week. It last about 2-3 months, I apply liberally. I also use Mario Badescu products. They have helped to clear up and control my skin.
