REVIEW: boscia Bright White Mask

Starting tomorrow, I’ve got a week of travel ahead of me and while I’ve tried to find travel or sample-sized versions of all of my favourite skincare products, I couldn’t. I’ll be on planes, in two cities and working through long days and probably eating less-than-awesome (for me) food.

To avoid dull, dry skin (and to pamper myself after F left for CB), I dug out my boscia Bright White Mask for the first time to give my skin a little treat.

I discovered boscia a little over a year ago, quite by accident, when I received a free sample of the Black Luminizing Mask (which is AWESOME, by the way). Next, I sampled the Cool Blue Calming Mask, which also lovely but not quite my favourite. Shortly thereafter, I visited Sephora to inquire about a great BB cream and was turned onto boscia BB Cream Light. (It’s now my go-to product, especially since it’s got a broad spectrum 27+.)

I like boscia because they keep chemical preservatives out of their botanically-based products.

The first thing I noticed about my mask was that it desperately needed to be shaken first. It had obviously separated a bit. As I began to apply the (now well mixed) mask to my face, I immediately thought of sunscreen: not the nicest scent, but also not the worst… and I will admit it grew on me. Compared to the Black Luminizing Mask or the Cool Blue Calming Mask, I felt as though it took more product to get coverage on my face but this could be due to the fact that it’s a white mask.

It’s humid in my apartment, so it took longer than the suggested 20 minutes to dry. No biggie: I had some DVR catch-up to play, and a can of Pepsi to enjoy! Around 30 minutes later, it was time to remove. Just like the other boscia masks, Bright White is a peel-off. It came off much easier than I had anticipated, in three big pieces, leaving my skin super soft, bright and feeling surprisingly hydrated. (Too bad about my hair, though.)

As a rule, I prefer a rinse off, moisturizing mask BUT the boscia Bright White Mask is easily, hands down my new favourite. If you have dry skin that needs a little boost, I highly recommend this mask. At $47 per bottle, it’s pricey but boscia products are made without parabens, sulphates and phthalates and you’re sure to get lots of love out of the bottle!
