Hey Fabs! It’s me again. Your girl MonaNisa. I know it’s been a minute but I’m back with another product review. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m obsessed with all things makeup and skincare. As a result, I order lots of makeup and skincare online. The other day, I was trying to rid my space of all of the opened packages I had. Most of the time, I open the box, take out the main thing that I ordered and then leave the samples in the box with the intention to come back to them at a later date. Well, apparently, I never came back to this box (oops!). As I’m going through the box I find a deluxe sample of Boscia Charcoal MakeUp Melter ($32, Sephora.com).
Since my last reviews, I’ve been using the Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment ($38, Sephora.com) to keep my pores nice and clean. I figured this would be a nice addition to the skincare routine.
The Boscia MakeUp Melter comes in a jar and has more of wax or balm consistency. It comes with a spatula that you use to scoop out the product. I only had a sample so it didn’t come with a spatula ☹. I just used my fingers to get the product out.
After rubbing it between your fingertips or palms, it breaks down into an oil that you apply to your dry face. The purpose of this product is to remove the make-up so you would apply it to your face while you’re still wearing your make-up. As you are rubbing the oil in a circular motion all over your face, you slowly begin to add water which emulsifies the product into a milky cleanser, breaking down the makeup and removing impurities.
Rinse, then pat dry with a damp cloth.
I don’t wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis. Having to be to work at 7am makes that quite difficult, however, I do wear eyeliner and a waterproof mascara everyday. If I have extra time, I might venture into a little foundation, shadow and/or blush. I’ve been using this for the past few nights to remove my makeup at night. I find that it works well to remove the makeup (foundation, shadow, blush); however, I’m still struggling to completely remove my eye makeup, mainly the eyeliner. I find that I still have to go back over my eyes with my trusty Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes ($4.49, Target). I don’t know if it’s because I only tight-line my eyeliner (only line the inner rims of my eyes) but I find that there is still makeup left on my eyes after rinsing the Boscia Makeup Melter from my face. I can feel most of the mascara dissolving as I rub the product over my eyes, but I am a tad bit afraid to rub it into my eye to get the eyeliner.
Tip: I do find it easier to splash my face with water first, and then apply the product. It helps to glide and emulsify faster. You may still need to add water throughout the process but adding the water first makes the process that much smoother.
Overall, I give it thumbs up. It’s a decent product but I think I’ll stick to my Neutrogena Makeup Remover wipes. It’s less mess, less work, no charcoal smell and most importantly…less price 😊.
On a side note…my skin was glowing the next day…
Until next time…Remember to remove your make-up before bed every night. Keep glowing!
