As a big Boscia fan, I was excited to try out their B.B. cream. Unfortunately, it didn’t work at all with my fair skin. It was rather obvious that I was wearing it, and it looked like I had on an orange-y foundation. Hopefully Boscia will add more shades as I would love to use this in a color that works with my skin tone. I liked that it didn’t leave a shiny or oily feel to my skin, wasn’t heavy, and didn’t have much of a scent. This BB cream is soothing for sensitive skin and it worked well as a treatment. Unlike other BB creams, this one is wonderful for skin that has yellow undertones. However because the texture of the product is creamy it is difficult to get it to “set” on oilier skin so that you can apply foundation over it. I find it difficult to blend into my skin so that it looks consistent and doesn’t create a filmy layer on the skin’s surface.
Here is the official information about this product from Boscia’s website.
