I’ve been obsessed with Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask since May.

It really is one of the best face masks I’ve EVER used, and I’ve used a lot. So when I spotted their purifying pore strips, I was psyched.

Honestly, I’ve never been a big let’s-pull-stuff-from-my-pores type of a person.

I always figured my 2x a week face mask routine covered that. And the strips that I had tried never seemed to do much more than leave me with an itchy, ugly red nose, and a sticky feeling on my face.

But these are totally different. Maybe it’s the charcoal powder. Or the silica or witch hazel extract. The strip goes on smooth and feels cool—much like my beloved black mask. And it peels off without irritation.

Whatever Boscia has put in their pore strip potion, it works. Well.

Just check out exhibit A.
