You guys have no idea how much I missed you guys and blogging during this whole enforced break. Blogging is such a vital part of me now and I really miss interacting with you guys, ranting and raving about make-up and life! Anyways, now I have a huge line up of things to review and let’s start off with Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask.
I’m such a big fan of face masks in general, I think its so important to give your skin a little treat once in a while. Therefore, a face mask is definitely one of my must haves skin-care items. I was looking for a new one, taking a break from my usual Lush Fresh Face Masks, I thought Boscia would make an interesting and novel choice. I picked it up! :)
It is a peel-off mask, so it was a far cry from the exfoliating ones I am used to. It is a thick black jelly like substance which is to be applied in an even layer and kept on for 15-20 minutes, as it dries. It claims to boost skin clarity and radiance by removing dirt and impurities and minimizing pores.
What I liked about it?
  • It did leave my skin clear and fresher looking. So it did what it said it would. Pores were minimized and skin was indeed radiant. A big plus!
  • Greater shelf value than most masks.
  • Portable, so travel friendly!
What I didn’t like about it?
  • Quantity is too less, one tube will last for 5-6 uses. For $44/Cdn, I definitely do expect more. Let down!
  • While it may be fun for some people to peel off the masks, I found it rather annoying and slightly painful. Although it will help if you let it dry for longer, as it will peel off much easily.
  • It takes 20 minutes to dry completely, definitely not something I’ll like to indulge in often. I much prefer those 5 minute masks.
Overall thoughts: So while it is indeed good for your skin, I would not repurchase it. For $44, I expect more value than 5-6 uses. Also, it is one of the lesser user friendly masks I have used. I would much rather buy 5 Lush Fresh Face Masks with my $44! Sorry Boscia, it didn’t work out between us </3.
Some comic relief!
The give-away is closed! Expect the results by this weekend. Please take-off the announcements from your side-bars if you haven’t done already. Thanks :)

    Welcome back:-)

    Thanks for the crisp review…and the pic was indeed LOL.

    44CDN for 5 uses is a bit too high. I am not too sure of your skin type..but if its anything like combi-oily, try the Blue Corn Mask from body shop. It works as exfoliator+mask and does a pretty job and the results are lovely too.

    Hehe, the black mask is cute. My favourite dark coloured mask is Lush's Cupcake. It works really well on drying out my small pimples and such. Smells divine too.
