Boscia is definitely one of my favorite beauty brands. It is mostly natural, and seems gentle enough for my sensitive skin. I haven’t encountered any products from this brand that make my acne worse.
This product is the Detoxifying Black Cleanser, which retails at Sephora for $28. The most prominent ingredient in this product is charcoal, which is a great product for acne. In order to get a lather, you’ll need to add water. I’ve found that, because the product is so sticky, it works best to put the water on your face before the cleanser or to put the cleanser on your hand and then add water before applying to your face. As the product touches skin, it actually does heat up gently which is kind of fun.
Overall, I think this is a nice product. I think that it has definitely helped my acne. It does a nice job at removing makeup. However, it is not without its downsides. The stickiness is kind of weird. Also, the stickiness causes the pump to clog frequently, which is very inconvenient. If the pump does cause, it will help if you remove the cap and run the pump and tube under warm water for a while. You can also just unscrew the cap and use the tube to shovel product out into your hand. It’s not the most glamorous method of using this product, but it does work. Ultimately, because of the issues with the tube clogging, I feel like too much of this product goes to waste. If the product’s packaging could be redone with a different method of dispensing, I think that would be a huge plus. As it is though, I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this one because I don’t like to feel wasteful and the stickiness is off-putting. However, I do like how it helps my skin, which is the ultimate the goal of skincare. Still, I’d prefer to find a different product in the future.
