Has anyone tried this line yet? I'm currently using their cleanser and breakout treatment! (which is really good btw!) Unlike other acne spot treatments, this one doesn't sting and helps heal very quickly! If anyone is thinking of buying a spot treatment gel, try Boscia's =)

Hmm, Sephora is now stocking this line so I'll pick up a sample the next time I'm there. What are the ingredients jellyberry? And how fast does it heal breakouts? TIA Smile

I used a few samples I got from the company after members on another forum raved about Boscia.
I think I received some type of treatment cream (I forget) and moisturizer.
I liked the brand but not enough to order full sizes.

Crazyskin,

I got this right off Sephora --

in the willow bark treatment:

.5 oz: Water, Butylene Glycol, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, PEG-75, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Leaf Extract, Epilobium Angustifolium (Willowherb) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Sapindus Mukurossi (Soapberry) Peel Extract, Potassium Ascorbyl Tocopheryl Phosphate (Vitamin C and E blend), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root Extract, Phellodendron Bark Extract, Dextrin, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Carbomer, PEG-80 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Orange Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Clove Oil, Fennel Oil, Gardenia Blue.

Mmm...it healed my breakouts pretty quickly...about 3-5 days (i'm not completely sure)! The good thing about this treatment is that it doesnt sting like some others I've tried. The Boscia Cleansing gel is VERY good for sensitive skin -- I've used it for about 2 weeks and my skin doesn't look blotchy and red anymore!!! one of the best I've ever tried!

Thanks jellyberry Smile I was at Sephora for something else last week and got a sample of the breakout gel while I was there. I've applied it 3 nights in a row and I agree it is very gentle, no sting at all. My blemish was slightly improved after one application but after the 2nd it "deflated" and almost all of the redness was gone. Seems to be healing nicely after the 3rd application. I am looking for a blemish treatment that prevents scarring and so far this product is looking good. Thanks for posting about this and leading me in this direction! Goes without saying I'll get a sample of the cleansing gel next Very Happy

I have tried quite a number of boscia products when it first came out a few years ago. Definitely not a good match for my skin type. If you email customer service at boscia they will send you lots of samples.

Thanks so much for the tip, mtview Smile Yipee, more samples!

This is OT, but - I just joined the biochemistry of beauty forum and I noticed there's someone with the same handle as you there. Is that you?

Hi crazyskin,

I am not on BoB anymore since it is no longer free. If you are on MUA, I am on there as well Laughing

I got a sample of their Oil Free Hydration with SPF15 a few weeks ago and this thread prompted me to start using it!

It's only be 2 days so far but I love it! Its very light textured and sinks in right away. I think for someone with dry skin it may not be enough hydration, but I get a bit oily so it works for me and also, I apply it after my Vivier Vit C which is also quite hydrating. Maybe used alone I wouldnt like it so much? Anyway, it's a great base for JI pressed, and you dont have to wait around for it to soak in before applying. Doesnt hurt that it has SPF either (yes, I know SPF15 isnt a lot, but it's better than nothing! Laughing )

Hi mtview Smile I pop in at MUA now and then but only as a guest. It has become a habit for me to check P'ville first before purchasing any new skincare item.

Hi princesita Smile they recommended the Oil Free Hydration to me and will be sending me a sample. After your review I'm even more eager to try it! Very Happy
