Boscia B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ Review

Why does Boscia's BB Cream have to be so expensive? It's so good but it's also so expensive, coming in at $47 for one tube at Sephora. That's a lot of money for a BB cream, even if it is one that pretty much delivers on all of its claims.

And what are those claims? According to Boscia, "this one-step wonder" product "helps diminish the appearance of pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone while providing long-wearing, natural coverage that conceals imperfections." I don't disagree with any of this.

While this is a BB cream, its coverage is actually pretty good and it successfully covered up any minor blemishes while blurry away pores and fine lines. It also lasted. I regularly wore this product outside on hot, humid days and it stayed in place for hours, leaving me with above-average looking skin.

Boscia also claims that this cream has a "lustrous, flawless finish." While this description is a bit hyped up, it's not far from the truth. The cream does leave a bit of a glow. While I usually prefer a matte finish, the results delivered by the Boscia cream are subtle enough that even I like them. It is a very natural-looking finish and is one that I think most customers would like.

But one of this product's true highlights is that it contains titanium dixodie, which acts as a broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Other ingredients include willowherb to claim inflammation, licorice root to fight dark spots and sodium hyaluronate to support "the skin's ability to attract and maintain moisture."

The cream's packaging is just your basic squeeze tube but it's functional and pretty, with a shiny silver cap that elevates it to be fitting for that $47 price tag. It also works nicely to keep the cream safe from air, bacteria and oily fingers.

My only concern about this product is that it comes in one shade that is "self-adjusting." That shade looked completely natural on me but then I have a pale complexion that generally works with self-adjusting colours. If you have darker skin, you're definitely going to want to test this product out before you invest in it.

Would I buy this product: I would if I had the money but I don't so, I have to pass on it. *sniff*

Should you buy this product: If you can afford it, go for it.
