Boscia Review

2 Products from @boscia that you need this summer!

Written by Deanna. P

Boscia I have seen, but had never tried.   Boscia is one of the world's first preservative-free, botanically based skin care lines.  This excites me!  I am very careful about what I eat so to know there is a skin care line that will help me put natural things on my face as well makes me very happy. I tried two product by the brand and was very happy with them both. Boscia cleansing oil can be used on all skin typesNormal, Oily, Combination, Dry & Sensitiveare all included on this list.   It comes in two sizes.  The 1.7 oz/50 mL retails for $10.00 &  the 5 oz/150 mL retails for $32.00.  The oil is used to remove makeup, brighten your face, cleans pores, & moisturizes.   It also helps prevent wrinkles and fine lines. 

There are all natural ingredients in the cleansing oil.  Some of them include:

-Natural Oil Complex (Rose Hip, Green Tea, Avocado, and Olive Fruit Oils): Delivers rich antioxidant vitamin E (tocotrienols) and utilizes a unique nanotechnology to detoxify and nourish the skin, refine the appearance of pores, and protect against free radical damage. 

-Botanical Amino Acids: Removes impurities and excess oil gently, while leaving skin conditioned and maintaining its protective moisture barrier. 

-Hydrangea Leaf: Purifies and minimizes the appearance of pores. 

-Eucalyptus: Stimulates the skin’s natural circulation for an invigorated look and feel. 

It’s very easy to use & can be used in the morning & evenings.  You apply the oil onto your face and massage in with a circular motion.   When product is evenly distributed, splash on some water and massage some more.  Then rinse off with water.  I love this cleanser & this brand.  The smell of the oil was so good.  It smelled so fresh & natural.  Also the product was easy to use & cleared my makeup off very easily.  After just one use, my skin looked great.  With no makeup on, my skin look fresh, clean & glowing. For $10, I definitely recommend this & if you like, I would purchase the bigger size.  It is a very good value for what it is & th results you get from it!

This sheet mask delivered the ultimate hydration my skin needed after being in the sun during the July 4th holiday

Allow me to introduce to you Boscia's Tsubaki Oil Deep Hydration Hydrogel Mask. 

During the July 4th Holiday weekend my skin needed major hydration after being in the sun. I decided to rip open this sheet mask to see what it could do for me. What I automatically loved about this mask is that it came in two parts and I feel that's what made it not slip off or around my face. It is quite slimey (as all sheet masks are) after removing it from the packaging and the film that protects the mask, I laid it on top of my face and my skin clung to the sheet like a magnet. The hydrogel mask helps lock in the moisture as my parched  skin drinks it all up.

The mask does make me resemble Leatherface from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre". YIKES!!!

I think out of all the sheets masks that I have tried, this one has been my favorite and the most comfortable to wear being that it comes in 2 pieces.

This product provided supreme hydration and it is fragrance free so it didn't irritate my sensitive skin in anyway. It did have a bit of a cooling sensation which I found calming on my skin. The hydrogel mask helps lock in the moisture as the sheet clings to the skin. 

The mask delivers multiple skin benefits with ingredients like cold pressed Tsubaki Oil to deeply moisturize and hydrate while protecting against free radicals and aging as well promote firmness and Hydration. This mask also contains Marine Collagen which has been an ingredient in Japanese skin care for MANY years helps skin retain moisture while keeping it firm yet baby soft as well as Willowherb to calm and reduce inflammation and redness. 

TIP: Place the packet in the fridge for a while and try cleansing your face with warm water and then apply the crisp cool mask. It'll will relax you as it hydrates you. After about 20 minutes, I  slipped the sheets off  and was left with visibly plump, moisturized, baby soft skin. My thirsty, dehydrated face definitely absorbed all that this mask had to offer. It completely revived my skin. 

After my skin was a tad bit sticky but I did follow up with the Tsubaki Glotion (Which I reviewed in my previous post) and it no longer had a tacky residue. My skin was simply glowing for the rest of the day and i kept receiving compliments. 

I wouldn't exactly recommend this to the oily babes out in the world, but this is a product that would do exceptional with Dry, Sensitive and/or Combo skin types. 

You too can have a chance at baby soft skin for $8 a pop at Sephora stores, Sephora.com and Boscia.com. 

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.
