Review: Boscia Luminizing Black Mask
While chatting on Twitter with My Opinion Means Nothing, I was introduced to the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask and thanks to her recommendation, I purchased it on a trip to Sephora. I’m so glad I did!
The Boscia Luminizing Face Mask is an amazing treat for the skin. It’s a deep cleansing inky black mask packed with minerals and free of parabens, sulfates and other nasty chemicals. I find that it tightens my skin, reduces redness and gives my face an overall glow. Because this mask peels off, it takes any dirt and oil with it.
This mask is best applied in a fairly thick, even layer. This not only allows the mask to work its magic, but also makes removal much easier. If the mask is applied too thinly over any sections of the face, it won’t peel off at all. Instead, you might struggle with a washcloth to remove the thinner bits of mask like I did. If the mask is applied thickly and evenly, I find that removal is a snap and the whole mask peels off in three to four pieces.
Since this mask peels off, it’s important to avoid the sensitive under eye area, as well as eye brows and the hairline. If not, this mask will yank out strands of hair as it’s removed. Also, if your skin is sensitive overall, be sure to perform a patch test before applying it all over as the removal process may irritate your skin.
This mask is expensive and a bit of an indulgence, but I find that it’s lasting. I’ve used it about six or seven times, but I still have a lot of product left even when I apply it in a thick layer. Because the mask itself is pretty thick, it doesn’t take a lot of the actual product to apply a substantial layer to the skin. Also, it isn’t necessary to apply the mask over the entire face. Focus on problem areas and use the mask there to whisk away impurities and reveal luminous skin.
