Skincare Favorite: Boscia Black Mask

The product: 
Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

The purpose: A peel-off mask that serves as an at home brightening treatment

Why I love it: I’m obsessed with this mask for several reasons! First off, it’s jet black and totally awesome for scaring your fam / roomates. It also goes on creamy smooth, cooling your face in a spa-esque manner. The clay composition of the mask is interlaced with antioxidants that literally suck the imperfections from your skin. The mask gets so tight after the 25 minute period that you can’t even smile! My favorite part by far is taking it off though. The mask forms perfectly to your face, and as you peel, you feel dead skin and excess oil being pulled away (hoorah!). Double bonus? The Black Mask is made paraben, sulfate, GMO, & phthalate free!

Be careful… not to apply the mask too close to the thin, sensitive skin around your eyes! The clay really clings to your pores, and that soft skin can hurt while peeling off the mask!

Strawberry brown sugar face mask

A concoction that gets rid of dead skin cells and moisturizes all skin types to reveal soft, glowing skin! This pre-makeup regimen is excellent for use before an important evening out, revealing your most radiant skin!

What you’ll need:
-2 large strawberries, mashed
-1 tablespoon brown sugar
-1 tablespoon coconut oil

The how-to:
Combine the 3 ingredients in a small bowl and mix together until well blended. Wash you face with warm water to open pores, then scoop into your hands.

Apply mask to clean skin and leave on for 7 minutes. If the concoction is too goopy, just add more brown sugar until the mix sits comfortably on your face.

(WARNING: This stuff smells so good, you’ll feel like you put a dollop of grandma’s jelly on your face! I actually had to take a taste and the stuff is delicious.)

After 7 – 10 minutes has elapsed, rinse your face with cold water. The cold water will close your pores and leave your skin a soft, exfoliated base for your regular makeup routine!

This is also a great pre-bedtime regimen! If you plan to use before sleeping, wash the mask off your face using warm water (this will keep your pores open to absorb any pre-bedtime serums or creams), and then apply your night treatments as usual.

This is one of our favorite all-natural face treatments, and is safe to use daily! It’s a steal too – compares to Fresh Sugar Face Polish at $58 a pot!
