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.

This would be perfect if I were going to a costume party as an Oompa Loompa. The color adjusts from grey to an obvious orange on my pale skin. Too bad, because I think I might have liked this otherwise. However, I'm a bit mystified by the BB movement in general-with such a limited number of shades I'm not sure how they could be expected to suit many people...

I have sensitive skin and mild rosacea. I used this cream this morning, within 1/2 an hour my face began to itch and burn. Never again. I only hope my skin calms down so I can go out of the house today.

I just moved here to TX and the weather made my skin really flaky and dry which does not look well with my mineral foundation. I had never tried BB creams but after some counseling with the Sephora associate I decided to try this. My skin is olive tone so finding something to match is very hard for me. I was very impressed with this BB cream as it adjusted nicely to my skin. I use my moisturizer, the BB Cream; a little goes a long way and I do set with my mineral powder. It works well in giving me that natural glow without wearing too much. I donít have to re-touch my face at all. It gives me the hydration that my skin so desperately needs in this weather. My husband has noticed such a big difference and believe me he is very straight forward does not sugar coat anything. I highly recommend this product if you have dry skin. Just remember to use a moisturizer if you have really dry skin before putting it on like me.

When I first received the product I was thrilled with it. The color is self-correcting (NW 15) and gave warmth to my face. The consistency was on the thick side but highly blendable. I have flawless skin that is a little bit oily on my chin and nose. While I did not use it on my chin you could not really tell because it blended so well everywhere else. After about a week I started noticing that I was peeling. Unfortunately, I can not attribute the peeling to anything but the bb cream as my skin is not dry. I was sorely disappointed. I did alot of research into the different creams and read all the review I could get my hands on. I had really high hopes for this cream. On to the next....

I really like this BB Cream, as a matter of fact this is the only "foundation" I use. I don't like for anything heavy to be on my face and this is so light yet covers everything I need covered. It hides my huuuuuge pores very nicely too, and evens out my skin tone, and I don't feel very guilty about putting this over the occasional breakout.

I ordered this from Sephora based on decent reviews, and it does go on nicely and leaves a lovely finish. I have large pores on my nose and cheeks and this did a nice job of making them less visible. It seemed to stay on well throughout the day and did not make me greasy. Unfortunately it did break me out after a few uses, so I am going to have to send it back.

This was my first ever BB purchase. Salesgirl at Sephora did a demo on my skin and my rather large pores *instantly* disappeared! I've been using thing on days when I want to correct the redness on my face and have a more even toned look - sometimes I don't even use a mirror to apply it!
I agree with other reviewers about it getting a bit greasy on my skin after a few hours but nothing a blot sheet won't correct. Only drawback for me is it does oxidize a bit on my skin so sometimes at the end of the day I look a little like I've got fake tanner on my face.

I like this bb cream, it beats the drugstore ones I've used that's for sure. The way it applies is kind of weird, when I rub in between my fingers there's a lot of slip. But it finishes well (I set it with a powder, I have combination skin and my forehead gets too oily to ever just wear bb cream alone) and the color matches nicely. I don't notice the orangey color people have mentioned, I'm not fair skinned but I don't have a dark tan either. Doesn't break my skin out and I really like that its all natural. All and all good, but my search for an amazing bb cream isn't over.

Decent product. The texture is creamy and applies on the skin very well. It leaves the skin with a dewy finish. It performs poorly controlling oil, it made my skin oily and shiny throughout the day when I have normal skin. The coverage is sheer, what you would expect in a BB cream.

General Concensus: Loooove this stuff, one of the only BB Cream's I've found to actually make a very quick, and active difference in my skin tone and overall appearance in a way that was dramatic enough for my co-workers to comment.
The price is a bit painful, and I wouldn't recommend it if you have extremely fair skin tone- however, it's without a doubt the the winner of my literal search (from cheap, to the most absurd in price) for the best beauty balm!

I really wanted to like this. The "glitter" a lot of people talk about did not bother me at all, I didn't notice it. It didn't oxidize into a weird color either, which is a problem I have with a lot of foundations and tinted moisturizers. But, it is not good on oily skin. It just made me look really, really greasy, and it accentuated any large pores I had. It would be a great product for someone with dryer skin, especially in the winter.

I purchased the set with Makeup Breakup cool cleansing oil, cooling eye balm, and this BB Cream. I was not all that pleased with this bb cream. It is a grey/white cream and it slightly changes to a more flesh toned colore but doesn't get "tan" enough. I am a nude sometimes natural beige tone and this product didn't completely match my skin tone. The girl at Sephora who was talking to me about this bb cream said that she was wearing this and nothing else on her skin. Her skin looked great and she was African American. She said the best way she found to apply this was with a foundation brush and I agree. It seperates at first when you are smoothing it onto your skin which is weird then the faster you blend it the more evenly it starts to spread. I don't really like that. It does dry quickly and if it is blended well. I like using this under a liquid foundation just because I don't like the way it looks on it's own with a whitish cast on my face. I was surprised some are saying it was too dark. Maybe I got a bad batch? I like the packaging. I will keep using it to finish what is left in the tube but I would not repurchase this again. ***EDIT on 11/12/12**** I have tried this again and have been using it for two weeks. My skin has gotten a bit more dry from the change of season. I now use this bb cream everyday. I notice that it blends better with my fingers and that the lotion does not seperate as it used to maybe because it was new and was sitting for too long. Also the color is more of a beige instead of a grey. I do give it a couple of hard shakes before I squeeze any out. I like that it provides a bit of moisture to my skin and the finish is a natural glow. It evens out my skin tone a bit but doesn't cover and will need to apply a foundation on top if you want any coverage. This makes my skin look smooth even when it is a little flaky. I sometimes just wear this or apply a liquid foundation on top like my current favorite the urban decay naked. When I use this alone it makes me look like I have great skin and it does not rub off or oxidize on me. I will recommend this to my friends especially those with dry skin.

This was my first BB cream and I'm not generally a foundation fan. The salesgirl at Sephora told me that Boscia is a facial product company making makeup, so their primary focus is staying true to skin. Made sense to me. I like this product. At first, I thought I looked a bit greasy, but then I spent the whole day getting compliments on how great my makeup looked - so I've decided it's a "dewy" look, not greasy haha.
