Boscia Luminizing Black Mask Review
After hearing so many bloggers hype up this mask I needed to try out the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask myself. Black charcoal is one of the most wide spread beauty obsession on the market right now. You can find products with black charcoal everywhere, including drug stores.
It is used to do a variety of numerous beauty tasks such as tightening pores, brightening skin, whitening teeth. It was also consumed as a vitamin in pill form for health benefits.
While hearing about the boscia luminizing black mask quite a lot in the media, I wanted to test it out to see if it was in fact a winning product.
Here is what it is supposed to do
- shrink pores
- firm skin
- reduce inflammation
Some of main active ingredients are
- Calcium Montmorillonite Clay (absorbs excess oil, toxins and provides antioxidants)
- Vitamin C (brightens the skin)
- Witch Hazel (kills blemish-causing bacteria)
In order to test out the boscia luminizing black mask I received a sample from Sephora which lasted me 2+ uses, this was a good size sample.
The first thing I noticed was the thick-gooey, glue-like consistency. The gel formula provided a very nice cooling effect on my skin. The pitch-black gel helps create an opaque layer on the skin.
This mask does not dry matte, it is shiny from when you put in on until you take it off. Make sure you moisturize after you use this mask. Check out my review on First Aid Beauty Moisturizer.
In order to sum up my review, after trying this mask out one time already my skin appeared much clearer and illuminated. My one regret was that I left it on for 20 minutes, the mask became so hard that it was excruciatingly painful to peel-off, I ended up wiping it off with warm water and a wash cloth. Do not leave it on longer than 15 minutes, 10 minutes seems to work fine.
