Today i’m going to do a skin care product review for the Boscia Clear Complexion Tonic with Botanical Blast. Prior to purchasing this toner i had been using a Clinique toner and found that not only was it incredibly drying, but it had also begun to burn my skin. It was basically like a chemical peel gone wrong…not a pretty sight, nor a pretty feeling. So, I set out to find a toner that did not have any alcohol in it or any harsh ingredients that would irritate my sensitive acne prone skin, and that’s when I stumbled upon this bad boy in Sephora.
When I arrived at
Sephora I immediately sought out the skin care section at the back of
the store and was approached my the most amazing women in the Sephora
universe! I told her about my ordeal with the Clinique product, of how
it burned my skin and made me look like a redder version of
Jocelyn Wildenstein, and once she finished her giggling she took me
through all of the alcohol free toners that were appropriate for acne
prone skin. At the end we settled on this spray toner and I haven’t
looked back. Not only is it gentle and non drying but it doesn’t have
any preservatives, which makes me feel at ease with putting it on my
face. However, I will say that I haven’t noticed any change in my acne
or pore zones on my face, but there also hasn’t been an increase in
blemishes so I think i’ll look just past that blip of false advertising.
This is not a toner that you can feel the effects of (i.e.- stinging or
tingling) so if you’re one of the people who need to feel your skin
care products ‘doing’ something then I don’t believe this is the one for
you. But if you want a no shine, gentle, clean face this toner may be
worth a try.
…and if you really hate it you can always return to Sephora…BONUS!!!
