Review: Boscia Make-up Break-Up Cool Cleansing Oil

Friday, August 22, 2014

Hey Everyone!

As promised, I have a review of the Boscia Make-Up Break-Up Cool Cleansing Oil today! I left the Nikon 1 at my house, so I had to snap some pictures with my phone. They didn't come out that bad though.

Anyways, I really do love this oil. It has seriously made such an improvement to my skin over the short amount of time that I've used it. Every night, with a full face of make-up, I put on a headband to make none of the oil gets into my hair, and just start wetting my face with luke warm water. After my face is wet, and my mascara and eyeliner have started to run, I pump exactly three squirts of the oil into the palm of my hand. I use this many pumps because I will sometimes have a large amount of make-up on due to work, or an occasion that I'm attending. If I only have some face product and mascara on, then I will use 1.5 to 2 pumps. After the oil is in my hand, I will gently start smoothing it onto my face and rubbing it in with circular motions. I rub all over my face, including my eyes. It foams pretty quickly and I like that because you can see what you are actually cleansing on your face, instead of guessing when the product doesn't foam.

After my face is covered in black due to my eye make-up, I rinse with luke warm water again, and pat dry with a towel. I usually massage the oil onto my face for a good one to two minutes. After I pat dry, I will go in with a cotton pad or cotton ball and remove the access eye make-up that the rinse didn't remove. This oil is great for removing all make-up but it doesn't get absolutely everything. I have to use the cotton pad to remove whatever mascara or eyeliner there is left on my face.

Overall, I love this product. It is a great alternative to make-up wipes or just washing your face with a cleanser. It really does improve the quality and feel of your skin as well. My skin is baby soft now that I've started using this oil. I feel like it's really cleaned out my skin and my pores as well. It comes in a five ounce bottle which is plenty of product for how little you have to use.
