Boscia Preservative Free Skincare

 One of my go-to and favorite skincare brands is Boscia. Fist time I tried and fell in love with this line was during my Sephora times...and since then, I keep getting back for more:)

You can check out Boscia's Blog HERE

A little info about Boscia:
1. What is a preservative?
The definition of a preservative is an industry-recognized ingredient that serves only to prevent microbial growth in consumer products such as a cosmetics and food.
2. What are parabens?
Parabens are the most commonly used preservatives in personal care products. However, Parabens are only one group of many different types of preservatives that have been shown to cause a host of skin irritations, such as dryness, redness and even breakouts. "Paraben-free" does not equal to preservative-free. When caring for sensitive skin, it's important to avoid all types of preservative- not just parabens!
3. What are the benefits of preservatives?
There are no known benefits, only that preservatives will extend the life of a product beyond what it would be naturally - even beyond what may be necessary, or desired.
4. What are the potential dangers of a preservative?
The biggest concern would be skin irritations that can vary from mild to very severe. Most people do not even think about the fact that these could be caused by their beauty products and what they are using to treat a problem could actually be making it much worse.
5. How do preservatives affect your skin?
Preservatives can cause many skin irritations from eczema to rosacea to blemishes.
6. Are products safe without preservatives? How can you keep products fresh?
Yes, products can be safe without preservatives as long as they are used before their ingredients break down. boscia, for example, created innovative procedures to extend product lifespan. Besides their award-winning manufacturing process, two of the ingredients that boscia uses to provide an antiseptic effect, retain moisture and deliver ingredient benefits to the skin, have also proven to increase shelf life. While other preservatives such as Parabens can prolong the life of a product almost indefinitely, yet have a harsh effect on the skin, boscia relies on its unique formulas to deliver gentle, non-irritating products. Where necessary, boscia also relies on its unique airless dispensing system to further retain product efficacy. boscia products have all been tested for freshness for three years from the date of fill. Each product is stamped with the "use by" date to ensure optimal product quality and freshness.

On a daily basis I use:

Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment: 
A silky gel-cream that nourishes and firms while diminishing puffiness and dark circles around the eye area.

Oil-free Daily Hydration with SPF 15:
An oil-free moisturizer that provides weightless hydration as it controls excess oil, minimizes the look of pores and protects skin from future damage.
Oil-free Nightly Hydration:
An oil-free nightly moisturizer that provides weightless hydration, combats excess oil and refines the look of pores.
MakeUp-BreakUp Cleansing Oil (which is the best to take off your makeup I have ever tried):
An extremely gentle way to deep cleanse, this refreshing cleansing oil dissolves impurities and makeup while decongesting pores without leaving an oily residue.

Disclaimer: All of these products I purchased with my own money.
Some of these products are not original size.

Have you ladies tried any Boscia products?

MAC Style Driven: Pro LongWear Lipcreme, Lipglass and Eye Shadow

“DRIVE,” she said.... and there’s no mistaking a woman on a mission to get what she wants! And in this case, that would be the ultimate in future-forward pro-longwear technology: a NEW, Pro Longwear Eye Shadow, flexible, medium-buildable and creamy smooth to the touch. Pro Longwear Lipglass juices up the gloss for six extended hours of lasting shine, light to dark, creamy or sparkling, with a polymer blend for precious extra hours of high-octane colour. Pro Longwear Lip Pencil shapes the mouth through glide and precision; for a clean getaway, no old-school skip-and-drag. The foolproof force for pulling it all off: Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation and Concealer…they go for 15 hours – that’s about the time it takes to drive from Paris to Monte Carlo...PLUS five hours of still looking FLAWLESS for dinner. Breathes and beautifies while controlling oil, keeping a colour-true application for the most natural, even finish. Pro Longwear Concealer mattes immediately with a formula that won’t slip, slide or budge. Our most killer collection of Pro Longwear advances ever…."

Today was such a gloomy day (June gloom in August?!?), that I had to find some spring/summery pictures to bring some color and light into my day.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
