Back in black - Boscia skincare


Jun 2, 2011 Beauty Bits 9 Comments

I’m not known for my patience and when I read about skincare and other goodies that aren’t available in the UK it just puts me in a bad mood. I’ve read quite a few reviews about Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask but Kizzy’s review pushed me over the edge. So I decided to take some action, order from Boscia and have it sent to my mom’s house. I’m about due for some iced tea and Jello sachets anyway. Here’s what I ordered…

Luminizing Black Mask

Some women crave diamonds, I crave face masks that look like black patent leather. This contains Montmorillonite clay and Pine bark extract and costs $34.oo for 80g. I don’t know what Montmorillonite is, but it sounds great!

Pore Purifying Black Strips

These contain charcoal powder and yes they are a more jumped up version of the Biore strips we’ve come to know and love. These are $15.oo for 6 so I’m not going to go crazy with them but I can’t sleep knowing that I don’t have any.

So what beauty booty are you craving ladies?

    I know what you mean, reading/hearing about products that aren’t available in the UK make me mad! As much as I love your B&BW hauls, they make me want to cry! :(

    Have you tried the Rodial version? I reviewed it recently & you might like to check it out as it’s available in the UK.

    Oh my goodness that mask looks amazing, just the sort of thing that I love. Is this available in shops in America, I’m going to Florida in the summer and I would definitely pick some of this up. Jude xx @jadlgw

    I have been reading about a US skincare line called Pasifica. I thought that there would be somewhere I could buy it but NO! I am getting to the point where I am becoming obsessed finding the stuff!!

    Hey Sam – I’ve heard of a bath and body range called Pacifica but don’t do skincare it’s mostly perfumes, body lotion etc. Leave it with me I’ve got connections! :D

    Hah! I love pushing people over the edge… *evil laugh* ;-)

    I don’t know what Montmorillonite is either, but this stuff is awesome! You describe it as ‘black patent leather’, and that’s exactly how I see it! II love peeling this stuff off… haha!

    Now I’m curious about the black strips! I’ll be patiently waiting for your review. ^_^
