Most Helpful Positive Review Cool concept for a peel off mask
Before I describe the application, packaging, or anything else, I just want to say I loved this because it was almost like a nose pore strip! I applied it all over my face and when I was peeling it all off, I noticed the white heads on my nose were more noticeable than before I put the mask on or like just in general. I normally like to squeeze them out on a regular basis anyway but after this mask, it all came out so easily! And more came out imo, and I do this REGULARLY. This made me give it 4 stars instead of a 3-3.5. Moving on!
The claim is true, it's honestly like an Icy Hot mask. With that, I wouldn't recommend this for anyone with super sensitive skin. The first time I put it on, I was like "oh god, I'm going to have to take this off" because it felt "too" hot and tingly. That feeling subsides in less than 5 minutes though and it's just cold and refreshing. It tightens because it's a peel off mask. This mask claims to be hydrating, but as a peel off mask, I think that's just impossible. Sheet masks, mud masks, gel masks, etc are hydrating but not peel off masks. They're meant to be tightening and another way to exfoliate your skin (by literally peeling off dead skin on the very top layer), which is what I felt when I peeled it off so it did what a peel off mask is supposed to do. The iridescent/chrome effect makes the mask fun lol. I used it on my bf too lol. I imagine this to be a fun mask to do with your friends too.
The price is a con for me considering it's just a peel off mask. I think you could get the same end result with a peel off mask slightly cheaper. The price and how it wouldn't be good for sensitive skin is why I would've initially given it 3 stars. It exceeded expectations and so I bumped it up to 4. It cleaned and tightened my pores so I am happy with the product! It's something I would buy on sale/promotion for sure. I tried this 3 times before this review and I never broke out from it. I received this product for free for testing purposes.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wow. Made my eyes burn. Very drying to the face.
This product has that Burning sensation as soon as it is applied. It literally felt like my skin was rubbed with peppers. It may have been really bad for me personally because I have very sensitive skin. But my eyes were burning. I had my fan on while I was applying the product so that may have made it worse but after looking at other reviews, it seems as though I'm not the only one with that problem. The burning sensation is super cool but with it was a little toned down for sensitive skin. The burning did not get any better for me over the next 20minutes. It did however clean my skin after peeling off the mask. It was easy to peel but a tad painful (as expected for sensitive skin). The Boscia face mask however, is very drying. I had to apply my usual moisturizer three times after doing the face mask simply because my face was so dried out. Probably might be better just to use on oily skin to remove excess oil. Next time I will only use it on parts of my face where I need to remove excess oil. Don't get me wrong, the product is pretty nice. After all, what is beauty without pain?

It burned when I put it on! Once it finally felt "icy" it was ok but that initial feeling hurt like the dickens! And I feel like I have a high pain tolerance. Buyer beware. You may like it if you're into pain.
I can't wait to use it again!
This mask is nice
Michelle from Midland, TX
This mask was nice. I didn't have any issues with it. It wasn't a miracle mask, but I do like it.
It does what it says!
Christine from Green Bay WI
This is a fun mask that lives up to its claims. It really does have an "icy hot" feeling. I wouldn't recommend it to someone with sensitive skin. It did cause my eyes to water at first as well. It's a fun color and peels off well.
Crisp and refreshing.
Hannah from Cincinnati, OH
This peel-off mask is very nice, you can feel the cool tingly sensation almost immediately. It takes a little bit longer to dry than I would like, but it peels nicely. It doesn't get as deep into the pores as the original Boscia mask I use, but it *feels* like this is deeply detoxing because of the icy feel to it. It's pretty to look at, it smells minty and cool, and it does feel nice on your skin. I think I will stick to the original Boscia mask, but this one was fine.
Good but use with caution!
Smoody from Charleston, SC
This is a good mask for target areas. I would not recommend if you have sensitive skin. It tingles pretty intensely and it can make your eyes water when you first apply it. I do like how it feels once it's on for a few minutes, and the tingles start to be a little more gentle.
Virgo from Mississippi
I want to be a mermaid! I actually loved the tingly feeling this had with application. Peeled off easily and washed off good. My skin looks and feels softer. I've only used once but will prob do this once or twice monthly.
Incredible mask for target areas
Anotherhappybosciacustomer from Iowa
I used this product only on my forehead since it contains hyaluronic acid and it's supposed to plump skin and I was not disappointed! It made my forehead wrinkles significantly less deep and skin more taught. I personally found it to be very hydrating, however the initial tingling was a lot and I definitely won't be experimenting with applying it to the rest of my face haha. Another very pleasant surprise was when I braced my self to peel it off expecting it to hurt like the dickens (as most peel off masks do) it was absolutely painless and a smooth easy one go peel. I would absolutely recommend this as a target face mask to a friend because I'm now hooked.
Waste of money
B from VA
Started out just like the box said, a cool tingling sensation but immediately followed by burning. It burned so bad to the point my eyes were watering and now my skin looks like I have a sunburn.
Love this mask!!
Kim from San Diego
This mask works so good. The peppermint really hits you and gives an icy tingly experience. Dries very nicely and doesn't hurt at all to peel off. Very satisfying and always pulls up gunk out of my pores.
Stoney girl from Lake Charles, La
I used "Glam Glo" for years, this mask provides better tightening results and my skin feels refreshed after removing the mask. This product is double the quantity for half the price of "Glam Glo".
Sorry no thank you
Sasha from WA
First off, I love all face mask types and Boscia. I'm all about self care. This mask has nothing that is relaxing, it immediately starts to have a burn sensation ( I was able to get through that), then the eyeballs start to burn ( mask applied no where close to eyes, per instructions) Why is menthol the 10th ingredient on a 20+ingredient mask. Couldn't even put the mask on my forehead had to hurry up and get my eyes shut. When all dry, the mask came off very easily but face very dry and bloodshot eyes. While this was drying all I could think of is this was like applying a muscle ache ointment on my face then rubbing my eyes.
katie from Maui
Kinda painful if you have sensitive skin. Removing it is very easy and doesn't hurt but the application feels like prickly icicles stabbing my skin. Face looks so smooth though :)
Made my face feel soft after, but it is intense and drying
Danielle from Maryland
I'm not sure if I would buy this again. Small amount of product for the price. I feel like I could purchase cheaper peel off masks and achieve the same results. Not a huge fan of peel off masks, but this one came off easily when left on for the whole 20 minutes. It takes a lot of produce to achieve an all in once piece peel off. Don't see it lasting more than a few applications. I have used it three time and it's low. Probably will use the remaining product for spot treatments for zits. Definitely good for that!
AshTastic12 from IL
I love how my skin looks and feels after this mask. It looks so refreshed and revitalized and smooth. I would've given this four stars if it wasn't for the pain i always experience when first applying. It's much different than your usual tingling, this felt like painful pinches all over my face. I don't like to use this product often, I much prefer my other mask products.
T from MI
Felt amazing once i took it off! Worth it.
This product is great and unique!

This product allowed the face to feel refreshed.
Amazing Icy Hot Feeling
Cheyenne the Lesbian from Colorado Springs, CO
Bottom line not suitable for sensitive skin or broken skin. But other than that this product felt and smelt amazing I loved it! I feel it's a perfect summer mask, could have more moisturizer in it and possibly be made for the teen crowd! *I received these products complimentary from @influenster for testing purposes*
Nice and cool
Anne from Eau Claire, WI
The cooling sensation was more pronounced than I expected. Loved though! Especially after a hot summer day in the garden. The cooling sensation even lasted after I took the mask off.
I would definitely buy this product again ❤️

Netflix + pizza + the mermaid peel-off mask = perfect night! 😍 .. and let me say that when @boscia said ICE they were NOT playing! But I absolutely love the feeling of this mask when it was on my face and loved even more the results of it. I loved How easily I was able to take it off in a whole without hurting my skin, how fresh, how soft and that little cold sensation I was able to feel after it was completely off. I love it and highly recommend it! 😋 (I received these products complimentary from @influenster for testing purposes) ❄️🔥 🧜🏽♀️ 💕 #bosciamerbabe #boscia #ulta #complimentary #contest @boscia @influenster I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

Make sure to apply evenly and apply as directed. I may have got it a little too thick in areas. ;) Excited to see the benefits after I apply evenly. I received this for free to test.
Love this face mask
Jocelyn from Wv
Love this face mask! It definitely has the warm to cool affect when applied. As the face mask dries it has a holographic affect to it. I love all things mint so the menthol scent is a plus. I received this product complementary of Influencer for testing purposes.
Brightening feel but burning sensation
Lauren from NYC
I received this product in a gift box and while I loved the results, it was really strong and made my eyes burn/water. I couldn't but the mask on my nose or closeish to my eyes.
Cool and tingly!
Stacie J from Columbus, OH
I love putting this mask on during my self-care evenings. About 15 minutes until it's fully dry and ready to be pealed off. Be careful around hairline and eyebrows. It takes everything with it when you peal it off.
Best mask ever
Grace from Houston
This is my first time trying boscia. I just love this mask. Feels so refreshing. After 20 minutes I saw how removed my blackheads around my nose. So good
Burned my eyes

Packaging was nice and mess free. Couldn't stand to leave the product on because it burned my eyes so bad even when it wasn't near them. Concept is unique, but I would not recommend. I received this product complementary for testing purposes.
