Fresh Face!

For the longest time, I slept in my makeup. I have had a bad habit of doing that. Now, that I'm older I'm becoming more concerned about my skin and decided to change that.

Awhile back I tried Philosophy due to many recommendations; however, I couldn't get over the metallic smell of the moisturizer. Not to mention, I felt like my skin was ridiculously oily later on in the day instead of combating it.

 Again, I trugged back to Sephora and did their little skin consultation on the computer. One of the lines was Boscia. And, it listed that it didn't contain a lot of chemicals like other products out there. It's one of the more natural lines. I figured, why not?

My skin started to look better after just a few days of use. It's soft, and while, I am still getting shiny (i don't think there's a cure for that) I feel like it's helping with all of that.

I forgot I had bought a door buster during Black Friday of Boscia, so I already had most of the Boscia products at home that the printout from Sephora listed. I asked for a sample of the day moisturizer and have liked it. The products are light and do not smell bad. I think I will actually purchase the full size regimen after using this trial size.

Just thought I'd let y'all know what's going on in my world other than being completely OVERWHELMED with being a "new" teacher. I've never taught history before so I feel like I'm a newbie. So, US History will consume my life this year...

Here's what I have been using:
along with the oil free daily hydration for the a.m.

If you call Boscia, they will also send you samples if you pay the $2.50 shipping fee. My skin has been a little flaky/dry in spots from the summer time, and I used the new self-defense vital oxidant, sample a couple of times and it helped with the dryness and didn't break me out or increase oil.

I tried Hope in a Jar, and I too had problems with the smell. I thought of it as ammonia smelling. I do, however, LOVE the purity cleanser and the microdelivery wash. Makes my skin so so soft!! :)

I love the Boscia Black Mask! I haven't tried any of their other products yet, but when I run out of my current moisturizer and wash, I might have to give them a try.

I need to get into a skin routine as well. I found my local Sephora (I just moved) and I need to pop in. I like Boscia's blotting sheets myself. I, too, get really shiny. Great post!
