Most Helpful Positive Review This gets all of the stars! :-)
boscia is a wonderful brand and this is one of their best. It is such a unique product. Swirled gel/cream products may not be new, but this one is so interesting and is an experience. The gel side gives you intense toning and brightening, the cream side gives you luxurious softness, smoothing of lines and plumps the skin. I do not use this daily, but you certainly could as it is so hydrating. Personally it is a product I use as a special overnight treatment usually once a week when my skin needs some extra help. Without fail the next morning its condition is improved. Makeup applies so nicely after using this as well.
Most Helpful Critical Review Leaves my face feeling sticky
I purchased this because I'm loving other items from this brand. I was hoping this would become my new nighttime moisturizer. Pros: it doesn't have a scent, it doesn't breakout my sensitive skin, and it looks nice in the jar. Cons: it leaves my face feeling tacky. I even tried putting another moisturizer on top of it, still felt sticky. Even my hand feels sticky after rubbing the product on my face. My skin feels no more moisturized than before I began using this. I'm considering returning it. However, I read a comment above that someone used it in the morning along with the Tsubaki beauty oil (which I LOVE); so I'll try that and also how makeup applies over it before making a final decision on whether or not to keep it.
If I end up liking it, I'll edit/update or leave another review within a week. If not, this review will stand.

I used to use the Tsubaki sleeping mask until it was discontinued, this is the next best option to moisturizing my dry skin!
Can't live without it!

Can't live without! My skin is mature and this is exactly what it needs when conditions are dry, year-round!. Super soothing, super moisturizing, no problems with clogged pores, very gentle and effective - this is super star and I won't go without it!

I love this moisturizer absolute favorite
ChicaCheeks from Las Vegas, NV
I bought this product on a whim, because I am always looking for a really good moisturizer. My skin is complicated: my cheeks, chin and forehead are super dry, but my nose gets really oily. It's so hard for me to find a moisturizer that addresses both of these issues. Tsubaki Swirl does this and so much more!
Tay from chi
Always love trying new moisturizers and im a fan of this one for sure! very hydrating and helps control my oil
BRV from Virginia
Found this on sale a while back, so I wanted to give it a try. This has rice in it which is known to be amazing for the skin. However- the silicone in this breaks me out :( If you're not sensitive to this ingredient, you might love this! It does act like a primer, because it blurs your pores and creates a smooth canvas for other products. Unfortunately these type of creams are not compatible with my skin.
So glad I found this again

I used to use this years ago and have been looking for it for a while. I love this!! I use more of the gel during the day and more cream at night. It is soothing and softens the skin. Moisturizes perfectly too. Please keep it around!!
Bgriff from New Jersey
This leaves my face feeling so smooth and moisturized. I usually put on at night and it's still good the following morning.
Brandon M. from New York, New York
I bought this for my best friend, she has dry and sensitive skin therefore I was nervous about getting it for her. After a week she texted me and said she loves it!
Moya J. from Sneads Ferry, North Carolina
I love this stuff. Goes on so smoothly, not greasy, not clumpy, feels great and keeps my skin looking very nice!
Smooth and creamy moisturizer.
Sep from Texas
This moisturizer feels really nice on the skin. It's refreshing and creamy. Sinks into my skin nicely.
I see reviews mentioning it being "sticky"? Not the case for me, it has always sunk into my skin really well and felt smooth/silky. I use this as my daytime moisturizer underneath my makeup.
It hydrates decently but is nothing super special for the price point, I'm not sure if i'll purchase again just because I feel it's a little bit too pricey for what it is.
New Favorite Moisturizer
Caitlin S. from Portland, Oregon
I have fairly combination skin that is also sensitive. I got a sample size of this moisturizer, and it quickly became my new go to. It is light weight like the other gel moisturizers that Boscia offers, it doesn't make my skin oily, but it makes it feel hydrated and smooth all day long.
Mary S. from Phoenix , Arizona
I'm going to try this cream because I LOVED the Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask which they did away with, it was one of their BEST products. I wrote them and they suggested I try the Chia Seed Moisture Cream, it may be moisturizing but feels "tight" on my face. Not a huge fan of it and will most likely not purchase again. Hoping this will feel more like the Hydration Sleeping Mask.
recommended for sensitive skin!
Catherlyn N. from Westminster, California
I have really sensitive skin so I'm not able to use most skincare products but I had no issues at all. It's soft gel-like texture feels light & makes your skin glow. My skin has felt more hydrated.
Hydrating but !
Christa R. from Irving , Texas
I was extremely excited that I found this product at Ross for super cheap so without a second thought, I purchased it ! Unfortunately every single time I use this product I get a new pimple on my face :((( I have oily skin in the T-zones whilst everywhere else leaning on the sensitive/dry side. Idk I quit using it for a while and no new pimples. I really want to like this product and I 100% would if it didn't break me out :/
Wanted to like it
Jen from Athens Ga
Really liked the feel of this but it caked up on my face and the product actually caked up causing flakes of the product all over my face. It was like when you sweat in 100 degree weather while mowing the lawn and the dirt dries and flakes. Gross. That's what the product did. I had to wash it all off and use another moisturizer.
My winter moisturizer!
Julie A. from Chicago
This moisturizer is perfect in the winter. I have very oily skin, but live in Chicago and our winters are harsh, leaving my skin extremely dry. Other oil-free and moisturizers that are meant to not leave the skin oily have ALWAYS made my skin oily. Not this one. By the end of the day, my skin is moisturized but does not look shiny at all. Highly recommend!
Christina from USA
I have been using this product for over 6 months now and I am in love! I have tried multiple moisturizers and I find myself coming back to this one every single time! I have combination skin and my skin tends to get oily throughout the day. This moisturizer keeps my skin so soft and hydrated. I haven't had issues with oily skin or breakouts since using this product. Like the other review I've read, I have not experienced stickiness or tackiness after application, just baby soft skin.
MiZ from Delray Beach Florida
Really loving this product by a line I already enjoy. It's a great moisturizer and I'm sure will last long. Already noticing differences in my skin. I struggle with finding a good moisturizer and this is one I would continue to use.
Amy M. from Burlingame, California
This product has honestly saved my skin for many reasons: travel size .5 FL is., acts as a primer, lightweight, a little does a lot, and long lasting. I am a flight attendant and traveling all over the world can be tiring. I love this product because I can use it before a flight, during, and at night. For many years, I have searched for something as pure as this product, and finally came across it. I love the ingredients, and most of all its travel-friendly.
Soo creamy and moisturizing
Sierra from Spokane, WA
I love this moisturizer it's literally so hydrating, the perfect balance of hydration and it sinks in so doesn't leave marks on ur pillow. Makes my skin feel sooo soft I'm in love
Maya M. from Edison, New Jersey
I originally bought this moisturizer at Sephora about a year ago when I told the saleswoman I have very sensitive skin. Boscia has been lifechanging for me! My combination skin absolutely loves this moisturizer. I don't believe Sephora sell is anymore so I've been coming straight to the website and have been trying new products - all have been so great!
Erin L. from Long Beach, California
I am 46 years old and when I hit 40 my skin decided that it was going to become dry and allergic to preservatives. Once I found Boscia, I skin likes the Tsubaki line the most. Just wish that they had not taken the Tsubaki sleeping mask away.
I love this moisturizer!!!
Megan C. from Fountain Valley, California
First off, it's so cute. I love the swirl of gel and cream. It also works really well for dry skin and feels great all day long. It doesn't feel sticky or too greasy like other moisturizers I've used in the past. Don't let the price scare you because the standard size lasts a long time because as others have said, a little goes a long way. It includes a little spatula to help ensure you don't take too much or if you don't like using your fingers. I'm honestly considering buying this in bulk because I'd be so sad if this was discontinued to allow for development of new products; however, since its preservative free (which is great!!!), I'm afraid to. Tip if you are traveling: just scoop out what you need into a smaller container, because I've found flying messes up the layering of the cream and gel components. It's still works fine after since you are supposed to mix the two, but it's less pretty on your shelf/vanity. Please never discontinue this Boscia!
Like a drink of water for your face.
Heidy from Los Angels
I have dry, but really sensitive skin and this cream hydrates like no other. It's like a drink of water for your face when you put it on. I love how hydrating and gentle it it.
