Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

I received this mask as a sample from my last trip to Sephora, hence photo of this full sized tube downloaded from the web. I also have no idea how much this is. Heh! I haven’t used a black mask before, so I thought it was interesting. According to Sephora, it is a groundbreaking, mineral-rich mask that peels off to deliver powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects. Well, I don’t know about the rest, but yes, it PEELS off.

I tried it out with a few of my friends on our girls trip to Bali and it was fun! All of us were in our pyjamas and we were applying it like war paint. It was funny because it felt like applying tar to our faces! One thing to note though, if you have sensitive eyes, you might feel your eyes water when the mask is wet. Yeah, even though you did not apply the mask on your eyes. 4 of us tried, and 2 of us got watery eyes, but the other 2 were fine. Just something you might want to note. It didn’t bother me too much though. Just close your eyes and rest for a bit 😉

I was debating whether to show this because they’re not the most flattering, but here are the photos:
Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin. Avoid eyebrows, hairline and lips. Avoid eye area by applying below orbital bone. Leave on 15-20 minutes or until completely dry.


I was trying to peel it off and I’m not just making this face for fun. It stuck really well to my skin! One of my friends said it ripped her facial hair off. LOL! Rinse off any residue with warm water. Follow with moisturizer. It’s recommended to use once or twice a week.


Well, all our skin felt really clean after, that’s for sure. You might also be happy to note that this mask is formulated WITHOUT:

– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
– Petrochemicals
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan

Sephora says:

This jet-black, mineral-rich mask creates a unique peel-off effect that delivers powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening results. Made with a premiere-quality clay, its deep-cleansing properties draw out dirt and oil. Other natural ingredients go to work exfoliating skin and refining pores. Powerful antioxidants shrink pores, firm skin, and reduce inflammation. Once dried, the mask strips away dead skin, impurities and excess oil to reveal immediate and visible results.

When I’m in Sephora next, I might just get the full sized tube 😉 If you’re there, go ask for a sample and try it out yourself. You don’t look pretty during, but you will after. LOL!
