True Blue – Boscia Cool Blue Hydrating Essence

Boscia added ‘something blue’ to their line up this Fall with their recent launch of Cool Blue Hydrating Essence. Expanding the color coded range, this hydrating treatment joins my favorite summer indulgences, the Cool Blue Calming Mask and the Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm. Because our indoor heat has been on all week and the showers are getting steamier, this bottle of soothing, cooling and hydrating liquid is the only one I’m hitting these days. #Essentially

With a high concentration of ingredients beneficial to the skin, Cool Blue Hydrating Essence contains less than 1% water, earning the potent formula its ‘essence’ badge. This boscia gel/serum features Japanese sake-derived Fermented Yeast Filtrate that boasts insanely powerful hydrating and brightening properties. You may be surprised that this star compound, claims the very same #1 spot on the ingredient list of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. But you didn’t hear that from me. #HearNoEvil

Fighting dryness and dehydration is effortless with the Cool Blue Hydrating Essence. The intensely nourishing plant based complex DayMoist CLR restores your skin’s moisture levels for at least 8 hours. Anti-inflammatory Sea Whip soothes and calms while Caffeine detoxifies, firms and brightens. Frescolat, a peppermint additive, provides an instant and lasting cooling effect that refreshes and revitalizes. All this is in addition to boscia’s signature blend of Jojoba Leaf and Willowherb that prevenst free radical damage and reduces redness. This essence is, literally, so cool! #NameOfTheGame

Every single skin type can benefit from this boscia find. The light consistency of Cool Blue Hydrating Essence will gel equally well with oily skins and parched complexions. Apply a couple of drops in the AM or PM (or both) before sunscreen or night cream respectively. With no added fragrance, artificial colors or parabens, even those with the most sensitive skin can be a part of the cool crowd. As a hydrating booster, it slots into everybody’s existing regimen at any age. #HauteFlashes

Essence is a term that might have come to us from Korea where it fits seamlessly into a rather simple skin care routine. You apply essence after cleansing and toning but before your ampoule, serum, emulsion, lotion and cream. Honestly, if I were to use all the recommended products (AND they double cleanse, too!) in a Korean skin care routine, I’d age while going through all the steps! And where EXACTLY does the sunscreen go?! #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat

Boscia Cool Blue Hydrating Essence retails for $48 and comes in a gorgeous ice blue 1.7oz dropper bottle. In spite of this already generous size, I’m already fantasizing about a jumbo pump bottle and a deluxe travel sample.  That way, we won’t ever have to be apart. Available at
