My first contact with Boscia products was in New York, in 2012, as one of those incredible samples you receive at Sephora. When I tried the charcoal based Detoxifying Black Cleanser I was amazed and immediately went online to search about the California brand. Boscia means Botanical Science with Advanced technology and it was originally developed in Japan, more than 30 years ago. Since 2002, the products are free from mineral oils, colourants, animal and synthetic ingredients.
The skincare line ranges from cleansers, moisturisers, exfoliants and masks formulated with jojoba leaf and willow herb, among many other natural and botanic actives. Besides the Detoxifying Cleanser, the Luminizing Black Mask and the No Pores No Shine T-Zone Treatment are great to diminish the appearance of large pores. Speaking of masks, they are a best-seller and include an oil control (Green Tea), calming (Cool Blue), brightening (Bright White), moisturising (Intensifying Moisture) and deep cleaning (Clarifying Detox) formulas.
Another must-haves are the BB Cream, in light or regular versions, and the Tsubaki Beauty Oil, that promises to protect the skin from free radicals and can be used under the makeup or at night, before bedtime. Other highlights: Konjac Cleansing Sponge, Self-Defense FPS 30 and Green Tea Blotting Linens.
Are you curious to try them? The sad news is that the line is only available in the US, Canada and some Asian countries, but you can buy online from American Sephora or Amazon UK (but only selected items). Maybe start with the travel kits and then pick your favourites!
