Here are some skincare items I've been testing out lately...

Boscia Sake Treatment Water - I was really looking forward to trying this out, namely because I wanted to see how it compared to the SKII Facial Treatment Essence. The good: I absolutely love the packaging. It's an oval, frosted glass pump bottle that's an unexpected bit of prettiness from what I usually expect from Boscia. And given the $46/1.85oz price point, I'm really glad they stepped it up. Packaging aside, this actually made my skin feel dry about 2 seconds after applying - almost like it sucked all moisture out of my skin. Definitely not what I was looking for or expecting, and it's getting returned.
Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer - Received this in the Fall CultBeauty goodie bag, and I'm really happy with it! I know it's a small point, but I'm really glad this is in a tube. I find this extremely soothing and hydrating, and it gives my lips a nice little bit of shine. It also gives a nice punch of gloss to lip liner. Another plus... it keeps my lips soft and moisturized overnight. Definitely one to check out if you are in the market for a new lip balm! *EDIT: Divya below said this is a little tingly on her lips, so that might be something to watch out for. I don't notice it at all, but wanted to let you know just in case!*
Medicell Advanced Moisture Eye Mask Duo - So I've been using this eye mask for a number of months now and have mentioned it a couple of times, but wanted to talk about it in a proper post because it's that fantastic and really deserves the praise. If you are in the market for Photoshop in an eye mask, this is it. Seriously. Hands down this is the best eye mask I've tried, and the results are better than any eye cream I've tried too. If I had $$ to burn I'd use this morning and night and would forgo proper eye cream altogether. It's amazingly hydrating with moisture that lasts, and my undereye area looks soooooo smooth - yes, Photoshop smooth!! The prices really vary, but I've found them on sale on various sites and also various sellers on Amazon for around $8-9/duo. The duo is only 2 masks meaning 1 for each eye...so one duo is really only one total application - mentioning this because the 'duo' part confused me when I ordered it for the first time. If you have problems with hydration and fine lines, this is absolutely one to try!!
Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel - OOOOOH, this has been on my wish list for so so long!! All the British YouTubers I watch seem to use it and rave about it, and I was really happy to finally get to try it! This is a slightly thicker gel that turns into an oil, and then emulsifies when you add water. It smells faintly of roses, but I don't find it overpowering. Something about this product is very soothing - over the last week I've had several days where my skin has felt it needed TLC and the Oskia has really helped. It removes all my makeup and sunscreen very well. My only slight complaint is that it doesn't rinse clean, and I have to use a baby wash cloth to make sure I get it completely off. For this reason, I don't use it to remove eye makeup - I don't want to tug on that delicate area. Other than that though, I can see keeping this in my routine for awhile :-)
Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them?
