q & a
Why change the size
Did you change the size of this product and why. I have been ordering this product ever since you put it on the market 50 ml/1.7 fl oz for $50 dollars but the last time i order it from Saks i received 30ml 1fl oz. I think is too pricy for the amount on the new container is mostly plastic. I prefer the bottle since i used it twice daily. Please do not change this product and bring back the bottle container! or reduce the price.
Thank you

Love it!!
One of my essentials. Very hydrating and no fragrance. Some people say it have a sake smell but personally I don't smell it. I use it morning and night cause I'm a serum junkie. Personally I think it's more hydrating than brightening. My complexion is fair maybe that's why I'm not noticing the "brightening" effect. But I love love it!!

This has changed my skin! I have very oily, sensitive, and prone to dehydration skin. This is the only serum/essence that doesn’t irritate me, balances my skin, and enhances everything else that I use - even if everything else in my routine is a simplistic product, and that is a requirement for me due to how sensitive I am. I don't even wear makeup because I get easily irritated, and this product allows me to walk outside confidently without a stitch of makeup on everyday. Its a frequent occurrence that I get compliments on the quality of my skin, and its because of this product.

Thank you, Thank you, and please keep producing this forever!

I must be dreaming...
Boscia’s Sake is well worth the money. I am in my 30’s and have had FOREVER issues with dryness and redness due to acne treatment and low grade rosacea. After a month, I no longer have dry and red skin. The pigment of my face is incredibly even and bright.
I get cold sores on the outside area of my lips. Upon healing the sore will begin to dry out and chap rather badly. I applied the Sake to the area and after 4 days it was gone! People, it takes about two and half weeks (with prescription treatment) to be completely healed. That’s less than half the freaking time!!
I am so excited and happy over this product!!

Wrinkle Free!
This product has literally reduced my wrinkles to none! I am in my early 30's and I don't have that many wrinkles but as a person who goes out in the sun often, I have crows feet, wrinkles on my forehead and above my nose. This product has reduced and eliminated my wrinkles. I use it everyday under my moisturizer and after about 3 months, my wrinkles are gone! I get so many compliments on my skin since i started to use this. read more

I vouch for this!
This is by far one of my favorite boscia products, and one that I will refuse to ever let go. I mix it into my skincare routine whenever I can (usually after cleaning or masking). It has made an incredible difference! I definitely see my skin brighter and more hydrated. Thank you boscia!

My new go to
I love Tsubaki Beauty Oil. I mosturize with it and even mix it with my foundation three seasons out of the year. But hot steamy summers in Texas can make a girl shy away from almost all moisturizers. I just discovered Sake Hydrating and Brightening Essence and WOW! I am in Love. I have middle aged skin, dry w occasional breakouts, yet, somehow, oily in the T zone. It's a mess. This wonderful product is my answer. It keeps all the lines around my eyes smoother and moisturizes without producing shine later in the afternoon. It even feels like a primer before my makeup, helping it go on smooth and even, so I use less foundation, which I also love. This is now a permanant addition in my arsenal against my termperamental dry and oily skin! read more

What a difference a few drops can make - transforms my skin.
I'm in a state of disbelief that my skin could ever feel as soft as it does. Just after one use, I noticed a difference! When I really feel the difference in the softness of my skin is when I start to wash my face. The feeling of the water, cleanser, whatever product, slides over my skin as if it were highly glazed ceramic. I can't help but wonder what these few drops of essence are doing beneath my skin if this is the result I get on the surface. I will be buying this product for as long as it is available and am considering looking at other products in this line. read more

nice glow
I have tan dry skin with pretty bad hyperpigmentation especially under the sun. The serum provided my dersired brightening results within a few days of using and i also bought the Boscia sake mask to go along with it. Personally i found the Boscia omega rosehip oil to be more hydrating. This serum might be beteer suited for someone with combination skin vs very dry. Now I cocktail boths serums and love them. read more

Significantly hydrating
I am a college student and this is particularly expensive for my budget. However, when the product WORKS, it's worth it! My skin gets very dry and this serum has almost completely solved my problems. Would highly recommend even if it's pricey!

Holy Grail of SKIN!
Ok so let me tell you that I am highly disappointed that this product has been out for a while now and no one has written a review yet. This serum packs a lot of punch and it is definitely worth more than $50. I only use it at night and it gives you the benefits of a spa facial while you sleep. I have very dry skin with a few hormonal breakouts here and there, and I use the entire Sake line...LOVE THIS STUFF. I wash my face at night and after I tone I put 3-4 drops (a little goes a long way) of serum on my face and neck then follow up with the Sake moisturizer. When I wake up in the morning I have this bright vibrant glow that I never want to wash off. When I wash my face in the morning I use the Tsubaki Swirl Moisturizer and my skin loves this routine. I get so many compliments on my skin and it has never been more soft and healthy. Thank you BOSCIA!!!

PS - The only reason why I gave this review 4 stars is because I've only been using the serum for a few weeks so far
