Possibly the trendiest ingredient in skincare, Charcoal may even be getting bigger this year. Boscia has just launched a White Charcoal Mattifying Makeup Setting Spray and Charcoal Pore Pudding, making many of us with combination skin the happiest squad around, and proving that reinventing the wheel may sometimes be a great option. Widely acknowledged for its detoxifying properties, Charcoal is a multi-faceted gem that also balances, hydrates, and soothes for a clear, healthier looking skin.
Whether you wear makeup or simply get shiny before lunchtime, the brand new White Charcoal Mattifying Makeup Setting Spray belongs on your vanity. Legit bae status. Water based and infused with Binchotan White Charcoal, a Japanese secret to perfectly content skin for centuries, the formula also consists of Artichoke Leaf Extract and addresses discoloration issues. Added Black Tea fights free radical damage.
You can use the setting spray prior to or after applying makeup, but it also prevents the glow in the dark T-zone effect when worn alone. The unscented fine mist sprays like a dream and dries to a soft matte finish within seconds. Be sure to press the pump down all the way and hold the bottle at least 6-8 inches away from face to ensure flawless application. Yes, the spray slightly resembles almond milk but it is absolutely traceless when applied sparingly. If you get carried away, use a sponge to pat in the excess product. Also, the bottle is HUGE. $38 (150ml)
Since nothing excites me more than a boscia mask, the latest Charcoal Pore Pudding intensive wash-off treatment was on my face immediately after opening the package. Bringing the inkwell filter to life, this black and white concoction sports a delicious swirl and its dual performance is noteworthy. Pudding like, indeed, the treatment is fueled by refining and exfoliating Kaolin Clay. Equal parts Activated Bamboo Charcoal and Binchotan White Charcoal, this remarkable medley also boasts nourishing and antioxidant rich Jojoba Oil, Grapefruit, Willow Herb, and Geranium Extracts, which purify and never dry the skin.
Apply the mask to a clean face by blending the Black and White Pudding parts, which depending on the ratio, will possibly create about, oh I don’t know, Fifty Shades of Gray? Since the treatment doesn’t harden as it dries, it won’t feel tight nor uncomfortable, nor will it crumble down your face as you’re sipping tea. Rinses off like a dream. Also, the clear jar looks very zebra chic on your vanity. $38 (85ml)
As a product enthusiast with borderline hoarding abilities, I consistently gravitate towards boscia every time I visit Sephora. Because one can never have enough boscia.
