Didn't Work

Bought this setting spray because I have an oily forehead but the rest of my face is pretty dry. I use a moisturizing primer then CC cream which works for the rest of my face so I thought a mattifying setting spray would work for my forehead. I was dissappointed because I had heard good things about this product but it did not mattify my forehead and it didn't really help with my eye makeup either.... It did set my cheeks, highlight and blush nicely but I still wouldn't call it mattifying...

If you have oily skin you NEED this

I've tried SO many high end products for oil control and none of them work as well or for as long as this product. Absolutely no matte foundation/primer/spray/treatment has EVER worked for my oily skin before I found this. I always ended up having to powder my face throughout the day which led to my make up looking cakey and gross by the time I got home. With this product I can wear whatever foundation, primer or suncreen I want without looking oily. I spray this on before i put anything on my face and spray it again after I've finished doing my make up. It stays matte for longer than anything else I've tried and I love not having to worry about checking my face in the mirror to see if I need to blot. If I do find that I need a touch up I spray this again in the late afternoon to freshen up my skin and get rid of any little bit of shine. The amazing thing is this also leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It's honestly the perfect product. They should make a travel size so I can always have it with me. It doesn't cause break outs, doesn't irritate the skin, doesn't mess up make up, makes your skin look flawless, feels nice, doesn't smell bad, doesn't feel sticky all while keeping you matte. It's amazing please try it if you have oily skin and are tired of matte products not working for you - this product actually does everything it says and will definitely change your make up game for the better! « less

Holy Grail Product

I am an oil slick. My skin usually starts to shine mere hours after I've applied my makeup. Before buying this Boscia setting spray, I was blotting/powdering 3-5 times per day, no exaggeration. By the time I would get home from work - my makeup was melting off. I have tried SO. MANY. products designed to reduce oil and keep me matte. They are no match for my oily complexion. Becca Evermatte products didn't work for me. Bare Minerals Matte foundation was a no go. Rimmel stay matte primer? Nope. I have even resorted to cult beauty hacks (milk of magnesia) which kept the oil at bay, but gave me other skin issues - I know, dumb. Literally nothing has held a candle to THIS SETTING SPRAY. Ladies & gents, I am telling you - purchase this product. It took me about 4 uses to figure out what worked best for my skin. I use this as a primer AND setting spray & it has totally been a game changer for me. I always moisturize first & wait for it to fully absorb. I shake the bottle well to mix the product & spray liberally over my entire face. Let dry. I then apply my makeup as usual & spray my entire face again to finish. Using this method I have achieved a matte, yet natural look. I do notice that I get slightly 'dewey' in the afternoon, but it's nothing a quick blot or light dusting of powder can't handle. My make up stays ALL DAY and I never have that melted off look that I used to get, even with other mattifying products. I honestly have seen serious improvements to my skin since incorporating this product to my routine. You will not be disappointed if you choose to purchase! Note: Oily friends, I also switched to a cleansing oil (I know, seems counter intuitive) as my daily cleanser. I use the Sephora brand. Truly, the new cleanser paired with this setting spray have changed. my. life. « less

so i bought a few of these already and had issues with the white spots going EVERYWHERE. but i kept it to see if it would go away because i bought one of the travel sprays and i had 0 issues with the spots previously. the new bottles if u look at them have very large charcoal chunks. as time goes on and you shake it every now, they start becoming smaller and lighter in colour it seems. i haven't had issues with the spots after the charcoal chunks became smaller :) thankfully i decided to keep my large 5oz bottle because i love this product and it works well to mattify. i get really oily all year round in the t zone area. i have combination skin and this is mattifying and doesn't dry my dry patches. :)

Won't use anything else!

I have only been using this setting spray for 3 days but so far, I am loving it! I have extremely oily skin and nothing seems to be able to control it. I have basically resigned myself to using blotting papers all day long. Until now! This setting spray is AMAZING! I spray it 3-5 times after applying my makeup and my skin stays matte and oil free all day long and my makeup stays put. I even noticed last night that my skin actually felt dry, but in a good way. I have used many setting sprays but this one is by far the best one I have used for my oily skin and I will keep repurchasing.

What is some of the best makeup for very hot and humid weather? I need makeup to stay on my face for performances at football games and it is very hot here! I need sweat proof anything. Drugstore or high end is fine! #lookingfor #seekingadvice
