Glotion is a thing... and it's Top Shelf Worthy! Boscia's Tsubaki Glotion is the summer supreme for glow queens!

 I give this 4 stars, not the most intense hydration for my severely parched skin but still great enough for a spot on my Top Shelf, for everyday use.

I’ve recently ran out of my go-to moisturizer and needed a back up. I saw this bottle of Boscia's Tsubuki Glotion Instant Luminizing Moisturizer just chilling on my shelf and decided to give it a go. HOLY GLITZ! This is an instantly brightening and hydrating gem! This lightweight moisturizer has a crisp, cool feeling that is silky to the touch and very quickly absorbed into the skin (My skin drank it up but then again, if you've read my previous reviews, my skin is thirsty AF). It doesn't leave a gross sticky residue (pet peeve!) or leave my T-Zone like a greasy oil slick. It gives my skin a light dewy glow courtesy of the light reflecting pigments in the product, that make me look well rested. This "Glotion" hasn't negatively affected my sensitive, dry skin or added more to my recent stress breakouts. I absolutely love the crisp, clean and calming scent. The scent is not overpowering whatsoever (so satisfying).

 The Packaging is great!! The pump perfectly controls the product, dispensing just enough in 2 pumps to instantly hydrate your face.

The antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients in this lightweight moisturizer provide the result of a youthful glowing complexion while strengthening your skin's natural moisture barrier and protecting against free radical damage and premature aging. 

Although it is great and it is enough to quench the dry/combo and normal skin gals.. It is still not enough moisture for MY SEVERELY skin. I still love it, I just find that i would have to use more. Being that my T-Zone didn't grease up, I would recommend this to those on the Oily Combo side... But I just wouldn't use more than one pump. (If you are skeptical and prefer something more mattifying, maybe try Boscia's Green Tea Oil-Free moisturizer and add a drop of Becca liquid shimmering skin perfector to get that brightening, glow effect.

You can purchase Boscia's Tsubaki Lotion at your local Sephora, sephora.com and Boscia.com. You get the average size for the average price of facial moisturizer at $38 for a 1.7oz bottle. 

I will continue to use up this moisturizer completely and see where it leaves my skin.
