Speedy Review: Boscia Black Magic Giftset

My trip to New York seems like a distant memory *sobs*, but I am still thoroughly benefiting from all the amazing beauty bits that I picked up during my travels. Being the beauty obsessor that I am, I managed to rack up a good few points in my Sephora VIB card. This is one of the sets that I picked when redeeming my points. Boscia was already on my radar from hearing all the American vloggers and the well travelled Brits raving about it! I have combination-oliy, blemish prone skin so this range sounds perfect for me! I saved it until I got home, which was torture! So what do I think of it?....


It's a bit of a mixed bag to be honest! There's one really amazing standout product, but then there's also a product that stands out for all the wrong reasons! 

THE AMAZING
The Detoxifying Cleanser is the star of the show for me! It's a perfect morning cleanser for my skin. I wear facial oil to bed most evenings so I need quite a thorough cleanser the next morning to remove any residue that might still be hanging about. It leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean without feeling tight and dry. I would definitely only recommend this one for combination or oily skin types (actually that stands for the whole range). I will probably be purchasing the larger bottle when I place my next Sephora order. 

THE GOOD
The hydrating gel is pretty nice. I find it most effective when i apply it before any type of evening facial oil. It just adds that extra layer of moisture. It kinda acts like a serum. I would consider buying this one again. 

THE BAD
I'm not really a fan of nose strips anyway, but I tried it just because it came in the set. I regretted it. When it came to peeling it off, I felt like I was being tortured. It was that stuck to my skin that it actually hurt to remove and left little grooves on the sides of my nose where you could see how much I had to pull my skin to remove it. NEVER AGAIN. My dislike for the Luminizing Black Mask is for quite similar reasons. It's a peel off mask, but I seriously thought that I was going to lose a layer of skin. Which would be great if you saw the benefits of a new layer of skin but I saw absolutely no results in any of the four uses. I was so disappointed and the peel off mask is one of the most satisfying products in existence, but I prefer to feel relaxed rather than tortured when pampering myself. 


Have you tried anything from Boscia before?
