If you have oily skin, summer is the bane of your existence, right? As soon as the humidity and heat is cranked up, sebum production is also cranked up! And if you live in a sub-tropical or tropical climate all year long, well then you worry about oily skin all year long too. So it is so nice when a company comes along with a great product that helps get rid of the oil slick.
boscia just came out with a great new addition to their skincare line that will help with this! Their Green Tea Oil-Control Mask takes control of sebum by minimizing production and mattifiying the skin immediately. It is a peel off mask, but is very easy to use. Best for combination/oily skin and oily skins, use it once to twice a week for great results. The Japanese Green Tea in the mask (3%): can reduce sebum production by 70%; has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, so it can help diminish breakouts; is a key anti-oxidant that helps to sooth and protect against free radical damage; can reduce inflammation from sun exposure and can help prevent scarring from breakouts. Cucumber provides oil control and pore minimizing benefits all while soothing and cooling the skin. It also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits. Silica Powder and Burdock Root absorb excess oil and prevent breakthrough shine throughout the day. They also refine the pores and provide a smooth appearance to the skin. Burdock Root can provide anti-bacterial benefits and reduce blemishes. Matrixyl3000 is a powerful peptide that helps to prevent wrinkles and stimulate cell renewal and boost collagen production in the skin. The mask also contains boscia’s proprietary blend of botanicals, Jojoba Leaf and Willowherb. Jojoba Leaf prevents free radical damage and nourishes the skin. Willowherb calms skin, prevents inflammation, redness and irritation.
After using this mask I noticed that my skin is immediately mattified. Not dry in any way, because the skin is left nourished. And redness that I actually have in my skin is diminished. I love the way boscia does skincare. Their skincare is so good! Everything I have used from their line is wonderful and works just the way it is supposed to. boscia products are always worth the money. Every penny.
Because of the calming and soothing ingredients in this mask, it can be used for acne skin too. It has a lot of anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients that will help to calm and soothe acneic skins. And because it is a peel-off mask, there is not a risk of increasing any irritation to pustules. No scrubbing involved! Even if you have some redness in your skin from say, sun exposure, this mask would help to calm it. The only caveat is that you have to avoid any hair. Make sure to avoid eyebrows and hair when applying. This mask is great because it has a multitude of uses!
boscia Green Tea Oil-Control Mask comes in a 2.8 oz./80 g. tube for $34.00. It can be purchased at www.boscia.com or www.sephora.com and SEPHORA stores.
