Cleansers -Boscia - Clear Complexion Cleanser with Botanical Blast
Dollykins 12/13/2009 1:13:00 AM
I love this cleanser, period. I was having really bad breakouts for awhile, and I kept trying things and they'd work for a tiny bit but then I'd just break out again and they'd stop working. My face was always oily and had a lot of whiteheads and blackheads and I was starting to get under the skin blemishes as well as on the skin. I went to Sephora and saw the kit for the normal to oily and decided to try it because one of the ladies there recommended it. I tried it the first night and LOVED IT. The first night! I've been using it ever since that day and I've had no breakouts what-so-ever. Hardly any blackheads at all, or whiteheads. I get a lot more compliments on my skin now too. The ONLY problem I have with this product is that it is a bit expensive. Highly recommended.

I like it, but I don't love it. I tried it on in the store and loved it, and came back and bought it 2 weeks later and now it doesn't smell quite the same. Kind of overpowering.
This stuff is okay, I would buy it again if it wasn't so expensive for just an okay product. Didn't break me out though, so that was good. And it didn't look too powdery, and it also looked pretty natural. I do like it, I just don't think it matches it's price tag.
Love this stuff. Great color, and works on all skin colors in my opinion. I have really fair skin and this looks really good on my skin, and I was at Sephora the other day and this lady with really tan skin had it on too and it looked great on her as well. Doesn't break me out at all, and I'm prone to breakouts. Looks natural. Highly recommended.
This stuff was pretty good. I just started using products that weren't from the drug store, so this was a huge difference for me. This was my first non-drugstore foundation and I like it. The only thing that bothered me was it was a bit orangy, and I really had to blend because I have fair skin. And since I had to blend so much, it was a very sheer coverage, which is okay because my skin isn't bad. I wouldn't recommend this if you don't want sheer coverage. I think too many people try to keep putting more and more on to cover, using too much and causing it to look cakey. I don't think it's meant for that. I only dab my finger in it a little, and rub a bit around each eye, around my nose, a little on my forehead, and some on my chin. I had a sample of this from Sephora and the sample lasted me almost a month because I didn't need that much. All and all, it really did make my skin look nice and smooth. But I think I'm going to move on to another, just because it is expensive and too orange for my skin.
I'm in love with this lotion, it really moisturizes my dry skin. Smells pretty good too. Not greasy at all, or sticky. A++

I've been using this for about a week and I'm really liking the results. My skin is smoother and blackhead/whitehead free. I get a few here and there but for the most part they've disappeared. I really like this. It is a tad drying though, but I use a toner and a moisturizer after and that fixes it.
I didn't like this stuff at all, or the conditioner. My Aveeno is so much better.
I am almost out of the shampoo and the conditioner. I loooove this stuff, I've tried so many promising hair shampoos and conditioners but this is the only thing that my hair likes. My hair is dryish, thick, and wavy, this cleans and moisturizes my hair really well and doesn't weigh my hair down either. I also straighten my hair a lot, and this plus some heat protection spray definitely helps keep it soft and shiny and damage free. Love love love it!

I got the coconut vanille lotion from B&BW and I really like this stuff! It smells wonderful and it works really well. Makes my skin nice and smooth too.
I think I just can't use powders, not sure if it's a covergirl thing or not but powders just look like I stuck my face in some dust, no matter how much I try to blend.
At first I thought I really liked this because it looked nice on my skin, but then it started giving me blackheads, and then eventually started giving me pimples that I hardly ever get so I definitely won't be buying this again. Revlon is better than covergirl, my skin doesn't like cheap stuff I guess. :\
I didn't really like this, it looked cakey on my face.

This product gives me mixed signals, some days I really like it, and other days I don't like it as much. I like it more than I don't like it though and it doesn't break me out so that's a big plus. It's not incredible but it's worked better than other stuff I've used.
