Boscia Luminizing Black Mask
A while back I received a sample of the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask in my Ipsy Glam Bag and fell in love with the product. If you could get your hands on the sample I definitely recommend giving it a try. I mainly used this product to remove blackheads, unwanted facial hairs and to smooth my skin.
For me this is the ultimate pore cleanser, however removing this was like ripping duck-tape off my face. To lessen the pain when removing this mask I think some shots of tequila are required. Unfortunate for me I didn’t receive the memo in time. This mask is serious business. When it is first applied to the skin it’s tacky like tar, but once it’s dried the struggle begins.

How To Apply
Here are some application tips based on my experience:
- Cleanse and gently exfoliate your face.
- Dry face with a preferably lint free towel.
- Completely cover the skin with a thick layer. However, avoid your hairline, eyebrows, lips, under your eyes or anywhere on your face that is extremely sensitive.
- Let the mask dry completely. This is a requirement for this mask to work.
- When it is completely dried (take tequila shots then …. joking …) slowly peel it off starting from the bottom moving in an upwards direction.
- Rinse your face to remove any residue from the mask, dry your face and use your favorite moisturizer.
Peeling this mask hurts like crazy, but for the results, the pain might be worth it. The mask pulls blackheads right out of your pores. It also removes any small unwanted baby facial hairs on the surface of the skin.
My results were amazing – I wish the sample size contained more product. The mask helped unclog large pores on my nose and remove unwanted baby hair. I was left with soft, smooth, and tighter skin after every use. However, I recommend using this mask once every other week because it can be incredibly irritating to your skin if it is sensitive. I will do a tutorial on this blog’s YouTube channel when I get the full-size bottle subscribe here for this update.
Since I really liked how the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask performed I looked for cheaper alternatives. I haven’t found a dupe from the other products I have tried. Consequently, I wish there were dupes for this product given the price of the full-size bottle. I tried Daiso Japan Natural Pack Charcoal Peel Off Mask, Freeman Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask and the Queen Helene Original Formula Antioxidant Grape Seed Extract Peel Off Masque but none were dupes.

However, they are great masks but they just did not perform like Boscia Luminizing Black Mask. I guess I love the “pain for gain” type of mask which is exactly what the Boscia mask is. LOL. Anyway, the only product out of the three I tried that came close was the Daiso Japan Natural Pack Charcoal Peel Off Mask. It’s currently $7.98 on Amazon. I wished it was a dead-on dupe because at its price it would be a winner.
I will definitely purchase the full-size bottle of the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask . I highly recommend it. Thumbs up to Boscia. I’m looking forward to trying other products from their skin care line. Visit Sephora and request a sample if you can, because this can be a great product to integrate into your skin care regimen.
