Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser : My first thoughts

Boscia detoxifying black cleanser

I got the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser about a week or two ago. I was all out of cleanser and couldn't wait for the Sephora package to arrive to my door.

My first though on it is that, to me, it smells a little like weed. Or, to make a flashback to my teenage years, it smells like the entrance to my high school (there was always a bunch of stoners at the front doors). But it's not over powering, and so, does not really bother me at all. I just find it kindda weird.

I heard a lot about Boscia on different blogs. And I also heard a lot about activated charcoal being good for the skin. So I decided to give it a go. From what I could read, the actives ingredients include : Activated Charcoal, Artichoke Leaf Extract, Glycolic Acid, Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Glucoside), Vitamin P (Alpha Glucosyl Hesperidin) and Licorice Root. What sold me on this is that it claims to reduce the appearance of pore and detoxifies (and more, but that's what I was looking for). You can read more about it on their website.

I haven't noticed a big difference in the size of my pores, but I think this could take a little longer that a week and a half to really see the effects of this. But I haven't been breaking out since I started using it, which is a good start! Also, right now I'm only using it at night, as I have another cleanser I use in the morning, but I might start to use it twice a day, so I could see the effects faster.

I'll keep on using it and report back in a future blog post.

Update : I've been using it twice a day for about a week now and I'm really starting to see a difference in my skin. It's over all clearer, the black heads are not as black and my pores are not as large! This is great! I'm so happy I tried this product!

Have you tried any products by Boscia? Or another activated charcoal product? What are your favorites cleansers?
That's a lot of questions.

  1. I used to love the regular Boscia cleanser. It was so mild and it smelled great. My favorite cleanser is Skin and Bones and I'm on my second bottle.

    1. I never heard of Skin and Bones before. But I just googled it and it seams good! I might have to try it.
