Boscia Peel-Off Masks

Boscia Multi-Masking Medley

Boscia Multi-Masking Medley from Sephora

After discovering this fragrance-free skincare brand, I was interested in trying out more from Japanese-brand Boscia, which makes masks that don’t have any added perfumes or artificial fragrances. I had previously tried out and reviewed some of the Boscia sheet masks. When I was in line at Sephora, in that oh-so-tempting section filled with miniature sample sized versions of products, I spied this Boscia Multi-Masking Medley pack of single use, peel-off masks that included the Green Tea Oil-control mask, the Bright White Mask, and two packs of the Luminizing Black Mask for $23.00 CAD.

The first one I tried was the Luminizing Black Mask, which is a popular one. This mask is described as a “pore-purifying, peel-off mask with activated black charcoal for a visibly clearer, smoother, more clarified complexion.”

This mask literally looks like thick, sticky black tar. It is so weird to spread it on your face! The directions say to leave on for 30 minutes or until completely dry, and then to gently peel off the mask from the outer edges and rinse off any residue. I had a difficult time removing this mask. It wasn’t the easiest to peel off and then there was plenty of black “residue” left behind which was difficult to rinse off and made quite the mess in my sink. Some of the benefits of this mask are supposed to be: “minimizes the appearance of pores, absorbs excess oil, and gently exfoliates for a bright, fresh-faced appearance…visibly reduces hyperpigmentation, minimizes large pores, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and combats excess oil while lifting away clogging impurities for radiant skin.” Unfortunately I didn’t really see any real difference after using this mask. The overall experience didn’t entice me to purchase the full-sized version.

The next one I tried was the Bright White Mask, a “brightening peel-off mask that helps to visibly even skintone and diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation.”

I found this one much easier to peel and rinse off. I really liked the effect this mask gave. The main benefit of this mask is to brighten and hydrate and I did visibly notice this. My favourite kind of mask is a hydrating one. I also thought that it reduced a lot of the redness in my skin. I would consider getting the full size of the Bright White Mask.

Finally I tackled the Green Tea Oil-Control Mask, which “provides oil-control, helps minimize sebum production, and soothes redness.”Boscia Green Tea Oil-Control Mask
Like the Bright White Mask, this one was easy to remove and rinse away. Having crazy combination skin that’s dry but also acne prone, I wasn’t sure how this one would work out, but it wasn’t overly drying. It felt very deep cleansing and, like the Bright White Mask, I felt it did help reduce redness.

I thought the Multi-Masking Medley was a great way to try out several of the Boscia peel-off masks for much less than buying all of the full-sized products. Have you tried any of the Boscia masks?

Thanks so much for reading!
