To keep skin looking flawless all day long, we blot away oily T-zone shine with boscia’s heroic Green Tea Blotting Linens.

Birchbox Breakdown

Popularized in Asia, BB creams have been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic—and we’re happy to report the positive press is well-deserved. We’re particularly smitten with this preservative-free version from boscia, a brand that combines the best in botanical science with Japanese innovation. It functions as a primer , moisturizer, foundation, and SPF to lighten your makeup bag and streamline your morning routine. The oil-free formula comes in a universal, self-adjusting shade that is suitable for most skin tones. It creates a lustrous finish and provides natural coverage that conceals imperfections.

How it Works

This cream’s thoughtfully researched formula sets it apart from the crowd. It’s filled with advanced ingredients that hydrate, firm and soothe the skin while shielding it from the sun. Sourced from deep sea algae, Abyssine is a survival molecule that locks in moisture and gives skin a plump, moisturized appearance. Hydroxyprolisilane restores skin’s bounce and fades fine lines, while a hefty dose of titanium dioxide blocks UV rays from reaching skin’s surface. Finally, light-reflecting mica helps cancel out flaws and illuminate your complexion.

How to Use

After washing your face, apply a quarter-sized amount onto clean, dry skin. For best results, apply in small circular motions, gently pressing into skin. There’s no need to follow with concealer or foundation. Build for additional coverage.

Great product
Purchased

I bought this a couple times and do really like it but it's nothing I can't get at target. There's so many on the market now it's difficult to find one that outshines another

THE WORST

OH MY GOD WHAT DID I JUST PUT ON MY FACE? I didn't get my sample from BB, but I saw I could review it here so I will! This was a toxic sludge consistency, I couldn't get it off my hand or my face! I had to use a heavy-duty makeup remover and a scrub brush to get this junk off! Thick, oily, orange, sparkly!??!?!?! Run away from this product.

Ok Cream
Purchased

This was my first BB cream and while liked the color, found the blending to be difficult and the consistency to be rather unappealing. Consider using CC cream instead.

Lightweight and great coverage

I love this BB cream. It's self-adjusting shade blends well with many skin tones, and it provides just enough coverage with out feeling too heavy. I use this everyday as my moisturizer and foundation. Great, easy product!

Perfect
Purchased

I love this BB Cream. It blends super well and looks like you are not wearing anything but gives you pretty good coverage. I use it with a little concealer too and it is great .

I'm hooked!
Purchased

I received a sample of boscia BB Cream from Birchbox and ended up ordering a full size shortly after. I have since purchased one for my mom as well! It makes my skin feel so moisturized and smooth and doesn't feel like i'm wearing anything heavy like foundation usually feels.

Color
Purchased

I loved the sample I received and ordered two more of the product. However the cream was not the same color. The original sample was slightly darker. I compared the products but cannot find any designation of color. I still love the cream, but would like to be able to chose the slightly darker cream. I'm curious if anyone has experienced the same.

I've tried several B.B. Creams.. this one is by far my favorite. a db will do you. A little goes a long way. evens out skin tone, soft spreadable feel.. leaves a beautiful canvas. I use it all the time.

Decent
Purchased

I bought this a year ago and there is still some left, but I neither use it everyday nor very heavy applications but it is a pretty big bottle. It does a nice job of blending without being cakey. One advice is to not leave it in a hot car or in direct sun because it will change the way it works (a learned experience).
