Which one is better for me, Boscia Smooth Facial Polish or Purifying Gel Cleanser? I have combination skin but more on the oily side.
Which one is better at controlling the oily/blemish factor, yet smooths and improve my skins appearance?

on Smoothing Facial Polish
My husband has acne prone skin (especially when work gets stressful). He uses the Boscia cleanser (for oily/acne) and saw amazing results.
The polish is something we BOTH use, but you only use it 2x a week. I would recommend both.
And, don't forget to use the lotion too. It's light but important for controlling his acne. Good luck!

I used to use hard scrubs and thought that was the way to really exfoliate and I have combination skin.. But I was told by a Sephora associate that the more abrasive scrubs u use if u have oily skin the more ur opening ur pores and ur skin will release oil and try to hydrate ur skin because ur trying to dry it out by basically aggravating it. So I like this Boscia scrub cuz it is gentle and my skim is just as smooth and feels fresh and nice afterwards. It is not a miracle worker but gets the job done!!

You need both actually. Polish is a twice weekly step, while cleanser is everyday. Polish will eliminate the dead skin cells which cleanser may not be complete doing so.
For combi oily skin, purifying gel cleanser is your best bet for a clarified complexion, it leaves ur skin feeling so fresh!
If you can only choose one, get the purifying gel cleanser to prevent blemishes.
The polish will be great even if you have acne/ sensitive skin because it gently refine your skin texture & refine pores.

I use both but the cleanser daily and the scrub every few days to keep my skin refreshed and bright

You really want to use both a cleanser and an exfoliator. Cleansers are for daily use, whereas exfoliators should be used 2-3 times a week (depending on your preference) to wash away dead, dry skin cells. So to answer your question, buy both.

I have dry skin and I find that the scrub dries my skin out a bit, so I think it should really be great for oily skin. And it is gentle, so it shouldn't irritate acne. Hope this helps!

THe purifying cleaner w/botanical blast has done wonders for my combo/oily skin. Then I use the exfoliator in the shower (but honestly don't think that does anything diff than using the cleanser w/a washcloth). IN the winter my combo skin gets dryer, so instead of the daily oil-free moisturizer (which works REALLY well at controlling oil during the summer, plus has sunscreen), I switch to the daily mositurizer, which gives my skin a bit more moisture. Also at night I use the Intensifying moisture pack if my face is feeling tight or dry.

I have similar face conditions as you and I use both products. I use the scrub about every third wash and the cleanser in between those washes. It works great for me - hopefully it does for you too.

Hellosunshine has it right. You might want to try the Clear complexion kit. I have oily skin and that's what I started with.

I have combination skin and my oily parts are very oily. I use this twice and week, focusing more on my trouble areas and it seems to work wonders. I would definitely not use this product more than your skin will let you. More is not always better.

Even if you have oily skin, you shouldn't use the facial polish as a daily cleanser. You should probably get the Boscia Cleanser with Botanical Blast instead (to use everyday), and get the facial polish to use as an exfoliater 2 times a week or as needed.
