Boscia recently sent me some of their makeup priming and finishing products to try out. Ive been testing these bits for a little while and at first I wasn’t sure how id get on with them, but the more I used them the more i loved them, so of course I wanted to share!
For the purpose of being 100% upfront with you guys, as I mentioned; these products were gifted. But, please be assured there was absolutely no obligation for me to review them or share them with you. Ive been sitting on these for a wile as I wanted to make sure I gave them a real test before reviewing them for you.
I first discovered Boscia about 5 years a go now? Maybe even a little longer. I first heard of them following the black mask trend on youtube. Loads of people were using this and black masks in general were going viral!
I was on my honeymoon in vegas and I went into a Sephora store for the first time. I was like a kid in a candy shop! There was so much I wanted but Im no millionaire so I had to be picky with what I bought.
I decided the grab a couple of bits from Anastasia Beverly Hills, the Modern Renaissance Palette as it was fairly new out and I’m pretty sure I picked up a glow kit too. There were a few other bits and pieces I grabbed as well but I don’t really remember what they were. However, I clearly remember seeing the Boscia black peel off mask and immediately putting it in my basket!
The masks has become one of my favourites for pore detoxing and I always have a bottle to hand!
Apart from that mask though, I hadn’t really tried much else from the brand until recently.
Revitalising Black Charcoal Hydration Gel
“An ultra-light gel moisturiser packed full of natural goodness that balances oil and shine, as well as brightening the skin tone and the skins surface texture.”Boscia
This is an amazing moisturiser, in general and especially for people with oilier skin! The gel formula means its not too heavy, so you don’t feel all gunked up, but at the same time its really refreshing and hydrating for the skin!
I have been loving using this, mostly as my day time moisturiser; but I have been using it at night as well from time to time.
I have noticed a difference in my skins appearance too, it looks a little brighter and more healthy than it usually does when I use this.
Porefecting White Charcoal Mattifying Treatment Primer
“Witch Hazel tightens the pores, Artichoke Leaf brightens the pore wall, and Binochotan White Charcoal Powder balances the skins moisture content for a smooth finish.”Boscia
Again, this primer is great for anyone with skin that’s more on the oily side, but if you have dryer skin you might still like this for your t-zone area.
Id say less is more for this primer as you don’t want to overdo it, and a little goes a long way. The primer gives a flawless base for you to apply makeup on and is fairly long lasting too.
Ive been loving using this both on its own and under foundation or concealer on the daily. Its definitely a new staple for me and something I will 100% be picking up again when I run out!
White Charcoal Mattifying MakeUp Setting Spray
“Helps balance the skin while keeping makeup locked in place. Each spritz is packed full of goodness including Licorice Root, Pomegranate Enzyme, Vitamin C; and Glycolic Acid to combat hyperpigmentation, regulate skin oils, brighten tone and encourage collagen synthesis for healthy glowing skin.”Boscia
I wasn’t keen on this at first, but I have grown to love it. This isnt a typical setting spray, it has an almost milky consistency and smells like a spa! Its very much the kind of spray thats packed with stuff to benefit your skin and not just your makeup!
Having said that, this also does a great job at fixing your face in place all day long!
Once other thing I think it important to mention for a spray is the mister… this one is sooooo nice! Looking at the packaging I was skeptical but it gives a really nice even mist and there have been no blotchy spots on my face from using this which is amazing!
The brand as a whole is a great brand to support and invest in for your skin. They make quality products that actually have skin benefits to them.
All of the products scream quality and I really want to explore the brand more!
These are definitely some bits id recommend picking up alongside their black mask if you don’t already own it!
Until next time…
