Boscia Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder. Discontinued. I Understand Why.

20170109_220632

It seems this product has been discontinued.  I can’t find it on Sephora.com or Boscia.com.  It doesn’t really matter.  I’ve never really been a fan of exfoliating powders (except the Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder, but more on that later).

With products like this, you pour the powder into your hand, mix a little water into it, and get to scrubbing.  I like to use Konjac sponges to move the product around on the skin, as I feel it helps exfoliate a little better, but it is by no means necessary.  This one claims to have oil mixed in with the cornstarch and rice bran, but my skin doesn’t feel any more moisturized with this one than with any other exfoliator.  It works, but it’s nothing to write home about.  May it rest in peace, now.

The first time I remember using a powder such as this was about ten years ago.  L’Occitane made a rice powder scrub.  I remember thinking it was really cool at the time, but, in the end, I felt the same way about it as I did about this one.  It works.  That’s about all.

Now the Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder is not of this world.  It gets a little foamy when you mix with with water, and the polishing granules are so fine, it’s almost like nothing is there, but it’s quite effective.  Rub that on your face for thirty seconds and rinse and your skin is gently exfoliated and feels so clean it’s almost unreal.  If anyone were going to spring for an exfoliating powder, I’d say buy that one in a heartbeat.

As for me, I’ve got exfoliators.  I don’t need another one.  Not yet, anyway.
