The Skincare Step That Shouldn’t Be “Mist”

Facial sprays – the skincare step that cannot be “mist”! Whether you spritz during your skincare routine, during makeup application, or throughout the day, facial sprays and tonics are for everyone. Our facial tonics at boscia provide amazing benefits and disperse a fine spray, great for your everyday skincare routine or for freshening up makeup throughout the day. Find our top reasons to spritz your skin below!

Misting GirlTone and Treat. Repeat.

Introducing facial sprays. These quick fixes are the key to elevating your skincare ritual. Today, many facial sprays go beyond hydration to now contain treatment for both instant and lasting results. Our Clear Complexion Tonic prevents and treats congestions and breakouts in the skin in a spritz. Following cleansing, spray tonic onto skin and continue with your usual skincare routine and makeup if desired. Balancing Facial Tonic boosts the efficacy of your treatments by prepping skin and balancing the skin’s surface. Both of our tonics contain our signature Botanical Blend. In this liquid form, the Botanical Blend treatment penetrates the skin quickly and delivers results instantly – thus, always use tonic immediately after cleansing. Spraying throughout the day will continue to treat the skin while adding controlled hydration for clear, healthy skin.

Backstage Must-Have

On set, many makeup artists keep a brush in one hand and a facial spray in the other! For flawless foundation application, misting is a must. Our tonics should be used prior to skincare and makeup application to enhance your look. Spritzing a buffing brush or Beauty Blender prior to use with your complexion product not only allows for smoother application, it also treats and hydrates the skin to give a plumped and healthy look. This will work to sheer out the product while infusing skincare elements into your application. Our tonics provide a cushion between makeup and skin, preventing the dreaded “caked” look. Our Balancing Facial Tonic is a favorite among the boscia team because it benefits any skin type and imparts a radiant glow to skin.

“Mochi Hada”

Mochi Hada means “baby-soft” in Japanese. At boscia, we take pride in developing skincare to help you achieve mochi hada skin. Our Balancing Facial Tonic hydrates and evens skin tone, while our Clear Complexion Tonic gently eliminates breakouts and regulates oil production. Both of our tonics work to prepare and prime the skin for your usual skincare ritual by creating a perfected, balanced canvas. For mochi hada skin throughout the day, spray tonic onto skin to refresh and rehydrate the skin.

Get Schooled! Day vs Night Skincare

With class nearly back in session, boscia wants to take a moment to educate our wonderful readers on the differences between your skincare routine during the day and at night. Below, find our breakdown of skincare routines for each level of skin-savvy expertise!


Our frequent readers know that you can combine steps by finding a great moisturizer that integrates an SPF into the mix! But for those curious as to why two moisturizers can benefit the skin, read on!

Why use a different moisturizer for day and night?

oil-free nightly hydrationMoisturizers for daytime use typically contain a lighter formula – better for controlling oil-production oil free daily hydrationthroughout the day, or sensitive skin that develops congestion easily. Daytime moisturizers also often contain an SPF. SPF creates a protective barrier to deflect the harmful rays of the sun. boscia uses Broad Spectrum SPF in our moisturizers – meaning our sunscreen protects from both UVA and UVB rays (the Aging and Burning rays).

Night moisturizers tend to moisturize the skin more deeply than daytime moisturizers. The skin restores itself at night and takes this time to soak in the moisture from your night cream and repair itself with any additional benefits found in your night cream.

For those who prefer to use only one moisturizer, ensure your skin stays protected by applying a sunscreen on top of your moisturizer during the day. Proceed to use the moisturizer alone at night time.

We suggest our staple moisturizers – Oil-free Daily Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 15 for day time, and Oil-free Nightly Hydration for night time use!

NEW! Cool Blue Hydration Essence


We’re introducing our coolest innovation yet, Cool Blue Hydration Essence. It’s an intense blast of hydration that whips desert-dry skin into shape!


What is an essence?

An essence is known for its extremely high concentration of a nourishing ingredient for the skin. It intensely targets a primary skincare concern; many essence products focus on delivering concentrated, long-lasting hydration. Cool Blue Hydration Essence is unique because it instantly creates moisturization and firmness, while keeping the skin calm and cool.

Why Cool Blue Hydration Essence?

Cool Blue Hydration Essence has powerful ingredients which produce lasting benefits. It is a hydrating gel-serum essence formulated containing less than 1% water (unlike most skincare essence products that typically contain 60-80% water).

The powerful ingredients include:

Sake-based filtrate – Provides 82% of the base formula for instant hydration

Sea Whip –  Derived from sea algae, Sea Whip is a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps to calm the skin by reducing inflammation

Caffeine -An antioxidant that firms and brightens the skin

Frescolat – Peppermint-derived, Frescolat gives a refreshing and long-lasting cooling sensation

How do I use it?

Apply 2-3 drops of Cool Blue Hydration Essence in the morning prior to your favorite boscia moisturizer and make-up. Apply it at night with your favorite boscia moisturizer for a deeper hydration as you sleep. Apply it both in the morning and at night, as often as needed.

And it’s great for all skin types!

Dry Skin: Apply Cool Blue Hydration Essence and layer it with Tsubaki Beauty Oil for a deeper hydrating experience.

Oily Skin: Apply Cool Blue Hydration Essence and add your favorite boscia moisturizer for double the hydration!

Have you used Cool Blue Hydration Essence yet? We want to hear from you!

Festival Season boscia Must-Haves!

Grab your flower headband, oversized shades and some SPF … it’s FESTIVAL SEASON! Whether you’re going to Coachella or Stagecoach (or both!) there are some must-have beauty products that are essential when braving the crowds, enjoying the music and soaking up the sun. Here’s our FAB 5 boscia products to toss in that adorable festival-approved tote!

  • THE PROPER (AND MOST ADORABLE) SUNSCREEN –  Not only does our Daily Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 have the most chic packaging ever but SPF 50 is a necessary item for any outdoor event. boscia has you covered when it comes to a multi-benefit sunscreen.  Daily Defense absorbs UVA rays to prevent skin damage (like fine lines and wrinkles), it improves the appearance of skin with moisturizing benefits to improve hydration, and reduces moisture loss to maintain skin elasticity and softness – the super stylish tube doesn’t hurt either!

B212-01 Daily Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF50

  • A FANTASTIC B.B. CREAM –  Less is always more when it comes to an outdoor party –  with the heat, the sweat, the crowds –  you get it. Our B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27 is a self-adjusting shade formulated for all skin types. It’s the ideal product to create a lustrous look and a flawless finish as it hydrates, firms and soothes the skin. Every festival-going gal needs a B.B. Cream that provides long-wearing, natural coverage that conceals imperfections. YOU, meet B.B.!

B210-01 BB Cream Original Broad Spectrum SPF 27

  • THE PERFECT FACE WASH –  Break up with your make up – and decongest your pores from the day! Our MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil goes onto dry skin to break up every ounce of make-up and even breaks down your sunscreen. It’s gentle enough for the sensitive eye area but tough enough to get your face make-up free – including the most stubborn of waterproof mascara! Try incorporating our Konjac Cleansing Sponge into your routine for a pillow-soft cleanse and exfoliation leaving you with even smoother, softer and brighter-looking skin.

C107-31 Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil

  • A LIGHT MOISTURIZER – Everyone loves moisturized and hydrated skin so we recommend a light moisturizer for the day, especially if you’re going hippy-chic and make-up free! Our Self-Defense Vital Antioxidant Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is the perfect (and prettiest) lightweight moisturizer for festival season. Self-Defense contains 8 antioxidants that help prevent premature signs of aging, repair existing damage, protect against environmental stressors, and promote elasticity and tone. It contains Rice Bran Oil which helps to reduce dark spots and increase micro-circulation for soft, glowing skin.

FUN FACT: In Japan, to call a woman a “”Nuka Bijin,” or a “Rice Bran Beauty, is a great compliment; it refers back to the glowing, youthful skin of women who worked in rice fields, washed the newly-harvested rice, and became exposed to high levels of Rice Bran Oil.

B104-15 Self-Defense Vital Antioxidant Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30

  • A FACE MASK –  Our calming and refreshing peel-off Cool Blue Calming Mask is the ideal mask for skin revival after a festival! It instantly cools, calms inflammation, and hydrates which is ideal for after-sun care and (yikes) any sunburns.

C215-01 Cool Blue Calming Mask

So what are your top festival season must-haves?
