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!

boscia’s BELOVED B.B.

It’s “the one-step wonder that primes, protects, and perfects!”  Ever wondered what the difference was between our B.B. Creams? What’s in them? How to apply correctly? Well good thing you’re here … because this is all about boscia’s BELOVED B.B.!

boscia was the first brand to launch B.B. Cream in the USA! Our B.B. formulas are oil-free and created to: hydrate, firm, and soothe skin & diminish the appearance of pores, plump up fine lines, and even out skin tone – all in one single step. Our B.B. Creams are long-wearing, natural coverage and self-adjusting shades for all skin types (B.B. Light is for light-medium light skin tones & B.B. Original is for medium skin tones). Simply put, they are fabulous!

First let’s get to know our B.B. Cream Light SPF 27 PA++ & B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++. Any fans? Both B.B. Creams contain the following ingredients:

  • Beta-Glucan –  natural oat derivative that provides essential moisture, and protects against environmental damage. It also promotes healthy skin renewal, promotes healing, reduces the discoloration of scars, and stimulates collagen production for firmer, younger-looking skin.
  • Arbutin – powerful antioxidant derived from bearberry, helps brighten hyperpigmentation and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Licorice Root –  antioxidant that calms, reduces hyperpigmentation, and minimizes the appearance of dark spots by helping block melanin production.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate – Supports the skin’s ability to maintain moisture.
  • Titanium Dioxide – Provides physical, non-chemical, and non-irritating broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection by scattering UV light.

They also both contain Abyssine – a natural survivor molecule from sea algae that helps defend skin from free radical damage as it helps to restore damaged skin, reinforce skin’s natural defense against external aggressors, and provides exceptional soothing benefits.

In addition to the listed ingredients above, our B.B. Creams also contain boscia’s Proprietary Botanical Blend:

  • Jojoba Leaf – prevents free radical damage while nourishing the skin
  • Willowherb – calms skin inflammation and reduces visible redness and irritation

You have probably seen our B.B. Cream Bronze as well (which is currently on sale here). It contains all of the wonderful ingredients above too! Get it while it’s hot … it’s selling out fast!

B.B. Cream application is KEY for a flawless finish. You must use a rolling motion to blend the product as you go. For a visual demonstration – check out our video below! Here’s a peek into the world of B.B.! What’s your favorite B.B. Cream?

Safety first!

We’re about five days out from the first day of summer, and the boscia crew is committed to helping make it as sun-safe as possible! While we all love sunny days, we also know that sun exposure without proper protection can accelerate the aging of the skin and even lead to skin cancer. That’s why we were so excited to be asked to be a part of Sephora’s Sun Safety Kit 2011! Not only do we get to show off our amazing Oil-free Daily Hydration SPF 15 as a part of this ultra-adorable set, but we also get to help support a great cause, because 100% of the net profits from the kit will benefit The Skin Cancer Foundation.

This supercharged sun set is all sold out online, but check your nearest Sephora store for stock. Better safe than sunburned!
