Every time I visit the USA I find new skin care products. Since I’m not a young lady anymore, my requirements for facial masks have changed. Along with cleansing, I need nourishing and moisturizing. Now I like delicate facial masks with pleasant scents. Those brutal clay masks have been cast aside.Boscia Products are available in Sephora stores.
The full-size tube of Luminizing Black Mask costs about $34.
The mask is black, with a barely perceptible pleasant scent and creamy formula. it’s a bit sticky.

It must be applied onto clean skin and left for 30 minutes or more. It’s supposed to form a film which must be removed in one move. I did it a different way and just washed it off with massage movements. It must be removed gradually. At first, one must make an effort, since the mask really turns into film.As a result, I get fresh revitalized skin. The mask can be used right before you go out.
A few notes of mine:
1) I think the mask would go better for ladies in their thirties and older.
2) This mask might be a bit too harsh for sensitive or dry skin.
So, if you’re in your thirties and have oily or combination skin, you might like this facial mask!
