Peeling back with my Mom (Boscia face mask)

My mom and I planned a girls night, sat down by the tube watched the Kardashian's and applied our face masks. The peel should be applied on clean, dry skin. I would apply it over the sink incase of any fall off, haha. It took about 15 minutes to fully dry and then on the first commercial break we ran to the bath to peel our faces, it was kind of fun. Avoid applying near any hair, like eyebrows or scalp. Any little pieces that I couldn't catch a peel I gently washed off with my cleanser with warm water. Don't rub the excess mask remains off with a rag, the mask already exfoliates and this may irritate the skin.

WARNING: Be careful when doing this face peel in the company of family or friends. My mom and I could not stop laughing and I really didn't want to crack my face. But I couldn't help but giggle non-stop, so bad I started to cry. Those are always good times :)

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask
Price: $ 38

"Strips away what you don't want. Leaves behind what you do."

Japenese technology delivers this one-of-a-kind innovatio: a mineral-rich "peel off" mask with powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects. Using superior Japanese botanicals in concentrated form, skin is refined, clarified, remarkably smooth and instantly luminous.


* Skin's clarity and radiance is dramatically improved
* Skin's texture is smoother and more refined
* Pores are diminished through deep-pore cleansing and exfoliation
* Powerful antioxidants prevent free-radical damage
* Reduces skin inflammation and roughness for younger-looking skin
* 100% preservative-ree to minimize skin irritations and reactions

Powerful Ingredients:

Vitamin C: brightens and evens skintone while reducing fine lines and wrinkles

Natural Clay: absorbs excess oil, dirt and toxins from skin as it exfoliates dead skin cells for purified, refined pores

Pine Bark Extract: a powerful antioxidant, provides soothing benefits and long-lasting conditioning

Witch Hazel: a natural antiseptic kills blemish causing bacteria

Rosemary Leaf Extract: a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that firms and minimizes pores
The end result: My face feels so smooth, like baby skin. My pores definitely do look smaller, and my nose is looking great, this is where my pores tend to attract dirt. I had two blemishes on my chin area and they're dry and smooth now. I feel glowing and I'm excited to see how my face looks in the morning.
It's so hard to find a peel that doesn't irritate my skin. I love the Boscia line because it's more natural and preservative free. I feel good using this line. Also this line doesn't test on animals ;)
Are you into doing a mask once and awhile or are you afraid to irritate your skin as well?

  1. nice! I saw this at Sephora and was curious about it. Thanks so much for the review. This looks like a lot of fun.

  2. A girls night with mom,aww it is so heart touching I am really really attached to my mom she is my best friend ,I feel so happy when I hear about other girls having fun with their moms because no matter how many good friends you make your mom will always be the one who will always always support and love you the most.

  3. Ohh I have a sample of this coming with an order I just placed, excited to give it a try now! x

  4. The price is pretty steep but I'm sure it's worth it. I love face masks especially with such great ingredients.

  5. @ alvira: My mother and I are very close as well, so I understand what you mean. :)

    @Ariel: You're going to love it!

    Hell notes for beauty: I thought the price was reasonable for a mask, but I work around these proces all day, so I think I've become numb to pricey products and thats why this price seems good lol.

  6. So cute and nice that you did that with your mum. Reminds me that I need to do a mask!

  7. I love that you did this with your mom. :D I also tried this product and I loved it. My skin felt soft and looked clearer.

  8. I have sensitive skin and had to return mine (sephora) when I peeled it my face was so irritated and itched like crazy. I guess I do really have super sensitive skin.
