The Boscia Restorative Night Moisture Cream has been my secret weapon against dry skin, flakes, and even fatigue, for years. If your skin is dry even in the summer and you dread winter because you know it’s just going to get worse, this cream may be for you.
If you have combination skin, you may want to give it a shot once the cold weather starts creeping back in. My skin has shifted over time from extremely dry to dry, and now I would almost consider it dry-normal or combination. I haven’t strayed from this cream, though, and believe me when I say I’ve tried a ton of moisturizers.
Since starting with the Boscia night cream, my skin tone has evened out and the skin itself seems plumper, less likely to show just how tired I actually am. I used to suffer from eczema on my face, but now there’s no more redness and irritation unless I let myself get dehydrated or add a new product to my line-up. Even then, recovery is much quicker than before.
The cream is very rich, and I can imagine some women getting turned off by how thick it feels. To me, it feels like getting that first huge glass of water after jogging in the sunÃ¢â‚¬â€it’s like my face sighs with relief. It just feels so good and luxurious after washing all the day’s makeup off.
All Boscia’s products are preservative-free. Ingredients in this particular cream include palmitoyl penta-peptide for fine lines, magnolia bark extract for elasticity and firmness, mulberry extract for age spots, jojoba leaf for free radical damage and prevention of premature aging, and willowherb for skin irritation and redness.
The only thing I’m not crazy about is the packaging. You have to press the top down in order to get the product out. The perfect amount for one application tends to come out at once, but if it breaks or malfunctions somehow, good luck getting into the jar! You also can’t tell how much product is left until one day you just can’t get enough out.
One perk, though, is that it does a very good job of getting out every drop as long as the pump is working correctly. I hacked into a bottle out of curiosity (I don’t recommend it) and there was absolutely nothing left. It was nice to know I wasn’t tossing leftover product, and therefore wasting my money.
