I was really excited when I saw that they were releasing a bronze version of this product. I had really wanted to try their bb creams but at around an NC 44, the other shades they had were way too light. I really enjoyed the consistency of this product and the color match, but I don't know if it was the heat or bringing the product on a flight but it separated really badly. I'm talking straight liquid coming out of the container getting all over my clothes because I wasn't expecting it. I tried to shake it up and mix the product back together but it just wasn't working so unfortunately I had to throw it away. Very disappointing.

I really like this product as a summer bb cream! I already went through one and am on my second. It adjusts to your skin tone and provides sheer coverage, which is all I'm really looking for in the summer. I moisturize before I apply it, as I think that it goes on much more smoothly. I apply with my fingers or a dampened beauty blender. I do have to go back over with concealer for blemishes, but it evens out some of the redness in my skin. It feels like you aren't wearing any makeup at all when you touch your face, which is something that I really like. It does have some sparkles in it, but I think they are a lot less noticeable on the face than when you pour it out. The only problem I have with this bb cream is that after a few months it started to separate in the container.

This is my favorite BB. Light and almost gel-like when applied, it adjusts to the wearer's skin tone. Disappears except for the subtle equalizing of skin tone and texture and the hydrated feel of the skin. I wear the "light" one, but the product adjusts so well that I can wear my sample-sized tube of the normal color when I am out of my regular.

I ran out of my favorite tinted moisturizer Nars and ran into this one at my drawer.
Nars- feels creamy on my skin. My face looks soft and silky. I use color Alaska and wow my face looks like porcelain. The makeup does not stay long, but I dont mind I feel my face looks pretty with make-up as without it.
Boscia- Always read label does not have preservatives it expires. Feels creamy, it is a little shimmery. Not crazy about the color. The makeup does not fall. It is a bb cream so it is a moisturizer, a foundation and does not need a primer. When you are on the go, this is the one to go.
When you are not putting much makeup on Nars is the one to go for.

I received a sample of this from Sephora and tried it out for four days. On the plus side, the color worked relatively well for my NC35ish skintone, not too pink for my very warm coloring. I also didn't break out, and the coverage seemed just slightly better than my usual -- Tarte's Smooth Operator Tinted Moisturizer (which has now been reformulated as a BB Cream). The texture is almost like a whipped foam that feels just a bit dense but smooths evenly onto my face. On the minus side, I have never tried any form of foundation -- liquid, creme, tinted moisturizer, anything -- that is so SPARKLY. This is no finely-milled shimmer, but full-fledged glitter particles.

I've liked everything else I've tried from Boscia -- face wash, exfoliator, masks and hand cream -- but I won't be buying this in full-size because of the glitter.

I really like this BB cream. It's hard to pinpoint what's so great about it, since it seems like....nothing.... and yet I can't start my day without it. I think the key as to why this works so great for me is that I mix it with my argan oil. Here's why:

-I have combo/dry skin and so I always HAVE to mix this with a drop or two of Josie Maran argan oil. If I don't, it will make my dry skin more visible and go on patchy. I also find the oil does an excellent job with making a little bit of this product go a loooong way.

-It's a no brainer in terms of application (again made easier by the argan oil). the color is so subtle, you can slap it on your face pretty quickly. I know others have said you have to be careful how you apply but that isn't the case for me. I guess it's just a very good match for my skin tone and the texture does change quite a bit with the oil.

-It does SLIGHTLY even out my skin... I do notice a difference once it's on, though it is not comparable to foundation.

-it feels like you are wearing NOTHING.... i mean, nothing. I could apply and then wipe my face all over a white pillow case and I bet nothing would come off. That's what makes me even wonder if it's worthwhile -- is it actually doing anything? But because of my last point, I do think it adds something to my makeup routine. Maybe it's just a good primer. Who knows....

-The packaging is just really, really nice. i love it.

-is this SPF or not??? I bought in the US and it's labeled SPF 27++ (whatever the hell that means). In Canada, there is no SPF on the label. That's kind of a bummer. I know Canada has stricter packaging laws. And I purchased thinking, OK, even if it doesn't do much in terms of coverage, at least it's an excellent sunscreen.... Well, now I don't even know if that's the case. Either the Canadian laws are too strict or they are too lenient in the US. Right now, my current tube has no SPF on the label which makes me feel as though I need to ALSO wear a sunscreen in addition to this. So when I run out I may not repurchase, because it's pretty expensive.

If this appeared in Canada with SPF on the label then yes, I would 100% repurchase.

I got sample of this from Sephora & I like it. Yeah, it is full of glitter, but if you finish it with a powder, it's not noticeable. I like the finish & texture this gave my skin, I didn't feel the need for foundation over it & I barely had to use any concealer, when I have LOT of sun damage. Love this, but with the glitter & price point; it's not something that I can purchase.

Perfect texture, whipped, light, even coverage. After a couple of minutes the color adjusts and looks natural, until a sparkle catches your eye... glitter!?! This product is full of glitter. Disappointing

Boscia BB Cream is not to be confused as my holy grail base product but it runs pretty damn close.

Packaging: Practical hygienic squeeze bottle with a shiny silver screw cap that locks in place to prevent spills. White with bright blue designs reminiscent of distinct Japanese patterns. Metallic brand title and grey font on bottle. Cute almost childlike packaging.

Scent: Fragrance free and no noticeable scent.

Texture: Light, mousse-like with unique water droplets that form as product is massaged in by hand. Refreshing whipped airy mousse texture. No silicone texture like tarte bb tinted primer or guerlain terracotta skin effect foundation. No creamy residue on blending hand afterwards.

Colour: Original shade. Grey and pink undertone. Fits fair NC-20 skin if blended in by hand using circular massaging movements. Must thoroughly blend in. Work in sections.

Finish: Virtually undetectable. Subtle brightening properties, accentuates natural flush in cheeks. Some glitter visible (grr). No hydration properties, must moisturize prior to application. Does not smooth over uneven skin texture. No light diffusing properties. Looks prettiest in broad daylight. Looks worst under fluorescent bathroom lighting as it accentuates texture of uneven skin. Minimizes pores.

Notes: Sheer , negligible wash of colour, extremely subtle colour correcting abilities, feels cool and refreshing though no hydration provided for skin, makes dry patches drier on normal dry skin, natural finish, neither dewy nor matte.

Conclusion: For skin needing no major correction, best on smooth textured skin. Enjoyed most in summer. Feels like no makeup on. Skin to the touch felt bare. Product feels like a makeup product due to sparkles and no visible skin improvements.

Solid product for those needing subtle brightening, sheer coverage and no makeup feel.

Awesome product! Feels super smooth and acts as a fantastic primer. I was a little skeptical about the self-adjusting shade...but it actually does match ur skin! It goes on light and adjusts.
