Travel Tryouts: Boscia's Tsubaki Beauty Oil


Facial oils are all the rage right now, but I haven't jumped on the bandwagon and bought one yet just because I have so many other products I need to go through first.  However, I did have a Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil sample so I figured I'd only use that AM and PM for the whole week and a half I was in Europe to really get a good feel of how a facial oil feels daily.  

After reading up on it I found out Tsubaki oil is super popular in Japanese beauty products, it's full of omega-3 and fatty acids which help keep skin hydrated and is a great anti-aging ingredient.  This product also contains a Japanese sea kelp which supports collagen production, and rice bran oil which helps with brightening.

Overall I can say I loved this beauty oil, it didn't make me greasy or effect my makeup at all when I used it in the AM.  It was lightweight, absorbed quickly, and left me hydrated and smooth.

I have combination skin so I was a bit nervous as to how I'd react in my oily spots, but honestly, I was completely fine!  I used just about two drops each time, that covered my entire face and left me feeling hydrated but nowhere near oily.

I have read some reviews where people have mentioned breaking out after using this product.  I never broke out once while using it, and I tend to have sensitive skin, so I sometimes do break out with new products.  Everyone's skin is different, but I think if you're looking to give a facial oil a try, def try this one.  Boscia is an amazing brand and the ingredients in the Tsubaki Beauty Oil are unique and a great introduction to beauty facial oils overall!
