As you all know, I am prone to redness. I touch something, I turn red. I eat something, I turn red. Story of my life. So when something promises to help calm that redness, I want it.
Boscia Cool Blue Calming Mask($41 CDN) is a peel-off mask that instantly cools, calms, and hydrates. It has a bunch of interesting ingredients including something called sea whip, which helps to soothe and calm skin by blocking inflammation caused by external irritants and allergens. It also has willow herb which reduces redness, and aloe vera to hydrate and heal.
Last week I had a glass of wine and BOOOOOOOM my face turned bright red and just wouldn’t calm down. I sometimes get a light flush on my cheeks from a glass of wine, but for some reason this time was really bad. So I thought what the heck, lets see what this Boscia Cool Blue Calming Mask can do! I slathered a thick layer all over my face, being careful to avoid my eyebrows, lips and hairline. The best part of this mask is the cool and refreshing sensation you feel on the skin. There’s something called peppermint-derived frescolat in it, and at first it’s kind of tingly, but you get used to it and it doesn’t burn or hurt at all. It felt so good on my hot face! After about 20 minutes, I peeled it off and Bazinga! The redness was toned down. My skin was smooth. And even felt a bit firmer too! I love it!
You’re supposed to use Boscia Cool Blue Calming Mask twice a week to get the full benefits of the anti-inflammatory effect, but that can get a bit expensive as you kind of need a lot of it every time you use it. All peel off masks are like that though-you need a thick layer to be able to peel it off easily. I’d love for Boscia to make this in a bigger size for that reason, as I’d love to start using it twice a week. But for now, I think it’s great to have as an emergency redness reducer, and that’s what I’ll use it for!
You can find the Boscia Cool Blue Calming Mask at Sephora right now! It would be great to get during the 20% off sale!
Happy Halloweeny Day! Guess what I’m doing today? GOING TO THE DENTIST. I have a toothache. I hate going to the dentist.
*product sent by the lovely PR, and BOY do I wish this mask could get rid of toothaches too!
