REVIEW: Boscia Willow Bark Breakout Treatment
When I went on vacation last month, I decided not to pack my trusty Mario Badescu Drying Lotion . It was a gamble, but what were the chances I was even going to get a zit anyway...? Pretty good, apparently. :irK: I got a smallish blemish on my cheek and broke out the Boscia Willow Bark Breakout Treatment sample that I had packed, and it was gone the next morning. Sweet! I found my new holy grail, right!?!? Unfortunately, ladies, I'm just not that bright. I figured it was just a small zit and that didn't prove anything and maybe it was a total fluke anyway. So, the story continues...
About a week later, I woke up with one of those god awful, painful, omg how does that even fit on my face!?!? kind of blemishes making itself comfortable on my chin. Luckily, it was still at that ok, I know it's there and so do observant women, but everyone else is none the wiser stage. So, I headed down to Sephora and started browsing. I asked the saleslady who approached me for her recommendation. Now, if I were a very bright girl, I would have waited until a saleslady with clear skin was available. But, we've covered this ground already. So, she recommended Murad Acne Spot Treatment. I tossed it in the basket.
When I went to checkout, a very clear skinned salesgirl rang me up. She had an on-the-go tube of Boscia Willow Bark Breakout Treatment sitting by her register. She took one look at my chin and said, you should buy this. :rotfl: Luckily, I'm not that stupid and I did buy it.
But, still I went home and that night I put the Murad on. It was a sulfer treatment, that HAD to be better than some natural formula, right!?!? Wrong. :cry: My zit totally grew overnight! So, I started putting the Boscia on it that morning and it was pretty much gone by the next morning. *I* still knew it was there and dying, but it was no longer visible. I could wash the area and reapply the Boscia gel a couple of times during the day and then wear it overnight without it drying out or freaking my skin out at. all.
x.) When it comes to skin products, don't listen to the Sephora saleslady that needs to see a dermatologist.
%.) Boscia is the bomb.
6.) Try to be bright.
