Boscia Clarifying Detox Mask

A Minty Marvel

by Laurie Hartzell

Boscia Clarifying Detox Mask

Models in magazine ads have it. And with some work, it’s attainable. What is it? A face that’s radiant, smooth and seemingly pore-less. Skincare purveyor Boscia’s Clarifying Detox Mask did the trick for us (and without much effort on our part).

This creamy clay mask was like mint ice cream for the skin—it felt rich, smelled great and gave our skin that warm, fuzzy feeling that we get when we indulge in a yummy sundae. A combination of peppermint, rosemary and lavender extracts result in a scent that’s refreshing yet light. Our skin was as smooth as promised, and, unlike other masks we’ve tried, it didn’t end up dry or tight. Blotchy skin spots and redness from leftover acne (that we may or may not admit to having) were banished, leaving us free to continue our day sans foundation. This deep-cleansing mask contains Kaolin Clay and Phellodendron Bark to absorb impurities and anti-oxidant powerhouse Green Tea to attack the signs of aging. Lavender and peppermint do double-duty by refining the pores and fighting bacteria.
