Latest Boscia Reviews

Indigo Eye Cream
5.0

A wonderful find! IME, the Boscia line is extremely hit or miss, although I have never run across anything that has caused my very sensitive, eczema-prone skin to break out (which is true to the brand's reputation). This eye cream is an extreme hit for me. It really works to help under-eye circles look less apparent. IDK if it's using color-cancelling pigments (although it doesn't leave any apparent color on my fingers or white pillowcases if I use it at night), caffeine, or what, but it does work for me. Eye creams can be very, very expensive, so I consider this to be a mid-priced product. I definitely recommend and will repurchase.

I used this cleanser years ago when it was packaged in the white bottle, without any issues. I recently took a trip to Sephora and thought I’d try it out again but this time I noticed it was re-formulated and the packaging is a different color. After a day of using it I developed tiny bumps around my eye area but I kept using it anyway. The bumps got worse and spread all throughout my Cheeks. I’m surprised that a “clean” skincare brand would cause such a reaction. Keep an eye out if you want to try this cleanser

I got this as a free gift from Ulta. I generally wouldn't ever buy such a mask, because peel-off masks have ALWAYS seemed like a useless gimmick to me. Literally, from I was about 10, when I first got to know about them. The reason: they don't supply the skin with anything useful - a moisturizer would be 100x more effective. Second, they don't remove anything from the skin besides some tiny hairs and oil (temporarily). They don't even pull out sebaceous filaments (gunk and hair from pores, not really necessary to remove) - stretchy textures aren't useful for that. They can irritate the skin because they pull on tiny hairs on the face - the skin doesn't like that. Also, the are unnecessarily messy - they take time to dry, and then there's always some tiny pieces that have to be washed away, and that to me is just annoying. At least, this mask dissolves fairly quickly. I guess the only useful thing about this could be that if you have flaky skin, this could peel off some of that and make your skin feel smoother, but if you use good skincare, that shouldn't be the case. Last thing: why is this SO EXPENSIVE?? I would much rather just use good skincare that I can apply and leave on my skin to work. Don' know why I even opened the tube of this - should have given it away to someone who likes seeing their face with a layer of black on it. Maybe it could have brought some joy to some person who doesn't know much about skincare.
