Boscia ~ Pore Purifying Black Strips

By Miss Style Apothecary · June 7, 2011 · 0 Comments ·


Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips $15.00 by Boscia at Sephora

What it is: A pack of six peel-off strips that absorb dirt and oil to reduce the appearance of pores and blackheads. What it is formulated to do: Each adhesive strip attracts pore-clogging dirt and oil. Its full-contact delivery system instantly applies charcoal powder, an ingredient that draws out impurities and detoxifies the skin. Silica, a natural mineral, controls excess oil while witch hazel extract, a natural astringent, tightens pores. Effective yet gentle, additional botanical ingredients provide a soothing and cooling sensation upon adhesion. Skin is left exceptionally clarified.

cakedoo1 says.. I have used 4 of these so far so I feel like I am good to go with sharing my thoughts with you.. Now I love the fact that these are black. All the others that I have used were other colors and when I peel them off, I can see all the gunk that comes out of my pores is completely visible.. I know I should want to see what comes out but I really don't... ewww! So I love that the black strips camouflages everything.. Now, I apply on my nose and make sure to apply when my nose is wet.. The wetter the better.. They then dry in place and stay on for between 5-10 minutes.. I usually forget I have them on.. I do find that these are easy to remove... They are gentle on the skin on my nose and pull away without irritation.. My nose does look pink but it is not sensitive after removal.. I have had some very poor results from others... I am telling you this, my nose is clean, oil-free and is free of clogged pores.. The weather here is warm and I am prone to blackheads so these have been a great addition.. I prefer to use in the evening so my skin has a change to calm after use so the next morning.. My nose is glowy and clean.. These are great and right now I can use 1x a week, I had been doing 2x a week but seems like the blackheads are well under control!
