I recently bought Boscia Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15 ($27), hoping for a great everyday moisturizer. Does it live up to my expectations? Yes and no.
The product comes in a tube with a pump dispenser, which I like because it allows the product to be delivered sanitarily. It is virtually scent free, and has the texture and appearance of a lightweight sunscreen. The weird thing about this moisturizer is that while my skin initially feels moisturized, literally 10 minutes later, my face feels sticky, tight, and even drier than before I put it on. I can't tell if this is because it doesn't absorb well enough into my skin, or if it just simply isn't moisturizing enough.
Another oddity about this moisturizer is that it pills up a bit when I apply primer over it. This can be remedied if I wait a full 15 minutes for it to soak in first, but I just don't have that kind of time in the morning. I am not going to be tossing the tube — mostly because I refuse to waste my $27 — and I keep hoping it will grow on me. It's not horrible, and maybe if my skin were oilier, I would appreciate the lightness of it even more.
