REVIEW: boscia Luminizing Black Mask

boscia Luminizing Black Mask
The boscia Luminizing Black Mask ($41.00) is a bit of a cult classic, and I decided I needed to try it out and see if it was worth all the hype. I think it is very expensive for a facial mask, more than I would usually spend.
Boscia says this innovative peel-off mask helps boost skin clarity and minimize pores while absorbing excess oil and removing dirt and impurities. It has awesome ingredients like jojoba leaf, vitamin C and Willowherb.

First off, application of this mask is a bit tricky and definitely takes some practice. If you put this mask on too thick, it won't set properly. You need to keep the mask on for 20-30 minutes to ensure it fully dries, but if after 30 minutes of application it is still not fully dried, you're most likely applying it much too thickly. I found that it was best to layer it on so it was fully opaque on the face, but not overly thick. Avoid all hair!! Don't put this on your eyebrows, it'll be a pain in the butt to remove. This mask might not pull off in one full jelly-like piece. For me, it tore off in a few large pieces each time I used it, which worked just fine for me.

I found the results of this mask to be mediocre. I much prefer the proactiv refining mask for clarifying my skin. I think this mask is kind of fun because of its peel-off nature, but that also makes it a bit tricky to use. When I removed the mask, it certainly left my skin feeling soft, but so do all facial masks I use. There was nothing about this mask that made it worth the $41.00 to me. I will continue to use my current tube until it is all gone, but I wouldn't recommend this mask based on the price tag. I am sure others have found it to be much more enjoyable since it is such a well known product, but it was a miss for me. I will stick to maskeraide, LUSH fresh face masks and proactiv's refining mask :)

Have you tried the boscia Luminizing Black Mask? What do you think?

  1. Great Review! I think i would want to try this just because it peels off and is a jelly consistency. I have been using the St. Ives Mineral Firming Mask and have been loving it. Maybe thats one you could try next??

    1. I think the mask is fun, but it doesn't give results so it was totally not worth the price! Thanks for the St Ives suggestion!

  2. I'm really not into peel off masks, I've used a few of them and they just aren't for me. Right now I'm really liking Origin's Charcoal mask and Caudalie's Moisturizing Cream Mask :)

  6. The look of this mask is quite scary to me.. LOL. I'm not sure how I'd feel about putting a black mask on my face. It's still too bad it was a miss!
    I've heard really good things about the proactiv mask.. even from people who didn't like everything else in the set.

  8. Is this the same as the Daizo ones? That are PAINFUL to peel off of sensitive parts of your face?! I love black masks but I use them only on my t-zone.. can't handle any more!

  11. Too bad :( This has been on my wishlist forever because a black peel off just seems so fun! Maybe I can just score a sample to experience it once without the $40 price tag.
