It’s officially here – the holiday season is in full swing, and no, we can’t believe it either (where does the time go??) Regardless, it’s a time of year when routines get thrown to the wind, and traveling, feasting, partying and parking space hunting become the new norm! Fortunately, boscia has got you covered in some of the stickiest skin situations the season can throw at you:
Party Hopping: Your best friend is throwing her annual holiday fête on Friday night, and so is your sister-in-law. And your neighbor. All of which follow your office’s bad sweater party.
Holi-DO: Party hop! Everyone gets a piece of your day, and you hit all the expected hot spots in style (for an hour or two – then off to the next!) This is where Skin Perfecting Primer is an absolute MUST – it flawlessly prevents makeup from sliding and shifting, all while reducing the appearance of pores for a silky, matte finish. You’ll look like you JUST touched up, even while running out the door to the next event… “Got to goooo!”
Cozy fires. And heaters. And sweaters. And candles. Warmth! The season is all about warmth. Sometimes a little TOO much warmth.
Holi-DO: If you find yourself roasting like a chestnut while nestled on the couch next to Aunt Hilda’s itchy wool cardigan (the one with the caroling snowmen), make sure you have a Blotting Linen within arm’s reach – you’re going to need it (we like to help you keep the holiday glow inside your heart, and not dripping down your face). Just a few blots with these natural linen fiber sheets will instantly absorb excess oil (and perspiration!) without disturbing your makeup one tiny bit! (Unfortunately we can’t say the same for the snowman sweater).
Snow. Sleet. Rain. Frost. It’s freezing outside. It’s December for goodness sakes! Okay, fine, in some parts of the country that are not Southern California, cold is actually a “thing” during this time of year. boscia can still help!
Holi-DO: Let’s start by thawing out that frosty face with our new Detoxifying Black Cleanser, a warming cleansing gel that actually heats up as it cleanses, melting away impurities and refining pores. Then, replace the moisture in that dry, cracked skin, using our Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15 (because SPF is always a must, winter or not!) This rich, luxurious moisturizer gives your skin the drink it desperately needs, while also diminishing uneven skintone, dullness and fine lines (also check out its PM counterpart, Restorative Night Moisture Cream!)
Eyelash glue. Glitter. Long-wear lipstick. (Get it all off me so I can go to bed). The holiday festivities may sometimes call for a face of makeup rivaling Toddlers and Tiaras, but if you fall asleep in that glam face, you just might wake up with a spot the next day brighter than Rudolph’s red nose (for which you should use our Willow Bark Breakout Treatment. But we digress…)
Holi-DO: MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil is your answer! Apply it dry on top of your makeup (eyes included!), massage it in, work in some water with your fingertips, and rinse away clean. You won’t believe the heavy-duty makeup this wonder-oil can cut through – and without leaving one drop of residue or oily sensation left over. Your skin is fresh, cleansed, and ready to do it all over again the next day! (see: Party Hopping).
That’s it for now! Remember, if you shop by December 19, you can take your pick of our Skin Perfecting Primer, Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15, or Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Complexions with your purchase! (See here for promo code information).
And from the entire team at boscia – Happy Holi-DO’s!
