I use it in conjunction with the Boscia Black mask so i don't know if its the cleanser working or just the mask but it works. You should give it a try. I like this brand because its helped with my oily skin and my acne. Just by using the black mask and the cleanser

I'll have to say yes to that. I get small black heads quite a bit, and when I use this they don't pop up as much. Use a clarisonic brush if you're able to, it helps to get rid of dead skin and get the good stuff from the cleanser into your pores without clogging them.

I have been using this, in addition to the Purifying cleanser (alternate them) for a little over a month. My blackheads are not completely gone, but I have far less than before I started using this. I've always been told it can take several weeks to see complete results when changing your skincare regimen.

I'm not sure if it removes blackheads, as I don't have those. But I am firm believer that once they're gone, this face wash will
ensure it doesn't come back! My whiteheads and ruddish red zits haven't come back! I suggest trying Boscia's Pore Purifying
Strips to remove the blackheads. Then use this wash to make sure they don't come back. Hope that helps!

Question
Do you have to use the whole line? Help?
Hi, this may be a really stupid question, but I have only used skincare that has been an entire line, (e.g. proactiv, etc) and I was wondering if you had to use the whole line of this product to get the benefit out of it or if it would be just as fine to use this cleanser and a different moisturizer. Again, sorry if this is dumb, I'm just a bit clueless when it comes to this stuff.

Hi! No, you don't have to. I have oily skin and this does the trick. It cleanses really well and the heat sensation is soothing on my skin. Your skin may react great to the cleanser and maybe not so great to a toner, etc..After I wash I use a matte moisturing cream by Peter Thomas Roth in the AM. At night I've been using the Boscia Black moisturizer. Having a good cleanser is a good foundation, though :)

Of course the brands recommend that, because you'll be giving them more money! But honestly, I think you need to follow how your face and skin feel. If you feel that you aren't getting the results you want from just the cleanser, or just the mask, and you have the means to test out the whole line, by all means, do so. Often the items are complementary and smell similarly. But I don't think there's any "magic" to it though. I just splurged on the Boscia Black cleanser, but I'm not going to buy their whole line, because I'm already happy with another moisturizer-sunscreen I use.

This is the only product I use from this line and I still feel I receive the full benefits from this cleanser. I've had fewer breakouts since using it and my pore size has noticeably shrunk. I wanted something that would improve my complexion and tone without drying out my face and this product has done all of those things without the aid of other items from the product line. I definitely feel this an affective cleanser/ stand alone product.

no, you can mix and match products. but most lines are made with ingredients that compliment each other. so just be aware of the combination of products you use or you could stir up all kinds of unimaginable drama with your skin.

when i started using the line, i continued to use epicuren moisturizer (until i ran out & could not find it in my area). i didn't experience any adverse effects. in fact, about 6 months after i started using boscia, i purchased their eye cream because i was so happy with the other products. good luck!

Don't ever put yourself down by thinking something is a dumb question, it's a great question. I love this product and one of the best things about it is that you can or cannot use the other products that go with this line. Things that are annoying about Murad, Clinique, or Proactive is that you DO have to use the whole line. Bosia is not like that at all. You may break out after using this cleanser for the first few days but do not give up or get discouraged, it is just really amazing about pulling out all of the impurities in your face. Give it a week or so and you will have the best skin you've ever had! Hope this helped!

No I have used the black cleanser and gel moisturizer and they do not leave a residue. You have have gotten a residue if you left the mask on to long and it dried out on your face. I always like to do masks in the shower with the steam while I condition hair and shave, and it never dries out in the shower.

I do not like this cleanser with the Clarisonic. It doesn't lather well and fails to provide any lubrication for the brush. I have to re-apply the cleanser to my brush several times because it feel as though I'm just using my Clarisonic with water and no cleanser. However, the Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel works wonderful with Clarisonic

For me it depends on how heavy the eye makeup is. If I have waterproof everything and went all out, I usually need to use my eye makeup remover after(or before because I learned my lesson:p). But most nights when I just have my everyday makeup it works perfectly. I really like Origins Well Off fast and gentle eye makeup remover. It really is fast and gentle and I hardly have to use any for it to do its job.

This is surprisingly very, very gentle on my sensitive skin. Even though it's vacuum-cleaning your pores, it does not strip all the good stuff out with the bad. My skin has never felt this clean and this not-irritated at the same time. Still, read the ingredients if there are specific ones that cause reactions in your skin. If you don't see any, the give it a go! You'll love it.
