Super fresh
I love how fresh the Cactus Water moisturizer feels on my skin. I have oily skin, and it can be a struggle to find the right moisturizer that doesn't leave my skin looking more oily than when I began. I love how clean and healthy my skin looks when I use this product.

So cool
I received this as a sample in a previous order and really loved the way this moisturizer felt cool and gentle on my skin. I will be purchasing some soon.

Sensitive, hormonal acne, hyperpigmentation
Friends. It’s been many years on a prescription routine of retinol in the evening and aczone in the morning - my cystic stress and hormonal flare ups and tiny irritated pores during quarantine took revenge. Glycolic / Salicylic has been a life saving addition, but my sensitive skin was itchy and still textured. Enter this moisturizer. I was using Garnier moisture rescue gel but thought to get rid of alcohol denat and see what happens. PEOPLE the softness sans oil and irritation that this moisturizer has delivered is mood changing. I feel like I can finally relax knowing it’s calming my skin all through the day. It’s sticky for literally two minutes and when it dries, layers perfectly under my Jane Iredale powder foundation. And looks great through the day with minimal blotting. So thankful. Don’t be nervous to give it a try - hope this helps someone! read more

I’ve always had a hard time finding a good moisturizer that didn’t leave my skin feeling oily or sticky. The minute I tried this, I instantly fell in love! It’s so lightweight, but so hydrating all at the same time. I’ll never use another moisturizer again!
- jamie m 07.01.2020
Best moisturizer I’ve had for my sensitive skin
I really love this protect. I’ve have been struggling with my dry skin for a long time. I started to use the product for three days and I’ve seen major changes. My skin feels softer and I also noticed their are less pores. I really am glad I started using Boscia. This is the perfect brand for my sensitive skin that I’ve been trying to find. Will definitely buy again.
- arleth r 06.20.2020
I have combination skin and this moisturizer feels fresh on my face. I put the moisturizer in the fridge so when I apply it, it’s fresh and cooling!
- ashley o 06.18.2020
I love it!!!!!!!!!
I've only been using Boscia products for just 4 days and I love it
Almost all the marks gave me acne and reddened my skin. In just four days, my pimples are almost gone and previous pimple stains. For those who have acne, dry and sensitive skin, like mine. I am using the cleansing purifying gel, vegan collagen booster serum and cactus water moisturizer. I definitely recommend it !!!
- tania a 04.10.2020
My biggest concerns before the moisture 1. large pores! I would apply my makeup and I would have ugly noticable pores 2. dry skin during winter. nasty peel-y skin. I work at 6am. I would moisturize in the morning with my old moisturizer. By 8am my chin and around my mouth were dry! BUT NOW....
I believe I bought it 3 weeks ago. I went big! I bought the 3.4 oz. I started using it 2 weeks ago and let me tell you. It has tightened my pores. I notice them smaller. My face is not dry at all no where! It gives my face a nice glow when applied. this product literally changed my face! Now can you make traveling sizes please??

To be completely honest I LOVE THIS MOISTURIZER!!! I have very sensitive skin also very dry during winter and for so many year I have tried so many different products and they all burned and hurt my skin I almost gave up until I tried Boscia!!! Everything I’ve tried here is amazing including this moisturizer is soo light weight and smells great leaves my skin soft all day thank you boscia!
- greysha r 03.11.2020
This will be the second time I order this cream. I love it because it is light weight and really does hydrate your face. It keeps your face so soft and clear. Also even helps a little with the puffiness under my eyes which is great as well. I will continue to buy this cream and others because they actually work and does what it is suppose to do. Thank you guys keep up the amazing work!!
- thalia r 12.28.2019
Great for dry skin! This moisturizer is a must have in your skin care routine.
- heather p 12.06.2019
I love this product!
- sabrina t 12.06.2019
Love this!
I use this as a second moisturizer because it’s perfectly sticky for makeup and leaves a nice glow! It is very light so perfect if you have fairly dry skin!
- kaya s 12.06.2019
Great !!!
I have dry / sensitive skin that is easily dehydrated and I have visible pores is some areas of my face - cheeks and in between eyebrow area. I use a lot of oily and heavy moisturizers to maintain a good skin barrier for repair but I couldn’t ever find a moisturizer for hydration. It was my missing piece until now! I really love this light weight cream. I mainly use it at night but I am not afraid to use in the day. After letting it do it’s magic after application, I even feel like I can go out without makeup! That says something in my book. Great product! read more
- jenny v 07.09.2019
Great Product
I have normal to oily skin and over 50 years old. This is a great moisturizer, it makes your skin look bright and smooth. I highly recommend
- ernestine t 05.17.2019
Best moisturizer...seriously!
I've got oily, acne prone skin (with the occasional dry patch) and large pores. After using this stuff for one night only, my skin is the softest I've ever felt and the patchy texture of my forehead is smooth. My skin doesn't look as oily and my breakouts have calmed down, with the dry patches disappearing. Best moisturizer I've ever used honestly. Feels so calming and doesn't turn my skin red like most moisturizers do! read more

Never knew Cactus like this
Looking back at life without this moisturizer seems like another life time, and I am not being dramatic! Since I first purchased this moisturizer, I have already gone through 2 whole jars (that is how much I enjoy this product). I do wear a fair amount of makeup/BB cream and I find that this helps lock in moisture but also allows my makeup to glide on effortlessly and helps with skin texture.
- sarah i 01.15.2019
The perfect mosturizer
This moisturizer is perfect for my oily-to-combo skin! I love the gel-texture and it's so cooling and refreshing on my skin. It makes my skin feel hydrated all day
- melissa m 07.26.2018
Look no further
Your dream of a moisturizer has arrived. I LOVE this moisturizer, i make all of my friends use it when they visit. I have combo-to-oily skin so this moisturizer is really great because I can't handle any moisturizers too heavy on my skin. It's great to prime my face before makeup too!
- shelby h 07.25.2018
Redness Reducer
I have been using this moisturizer every morning in my skincare routine. I have had several red spots/splotches that would appear randomly throughout the month and this has absolutely cleared that up!! I am shocked to see how this has changed my skin. I think it would help those with rosacea. Love it so much and will always use over the sake serum.
- mali i 07.25.2018
This moisturizer is AMAZING!
This moisturizer is by far my new favorite! After application, my skin feels so soft and not at all greasy. I love that I am able to use it both in the morning and at night! It is great for my combination skin type and it is definitely a staple in my skincare routine.
- erin l 07.25.2018
My go-to moisturizer
This moisturizer is amazing! It really hydrates my skin all day. This cooling moisturizer is my summer go to, especially after a fun day in the sun. I swear by the Queen of the Night Cactus and Aloe Vera combo to help cool my sun burnt face after a long day at the beach!
- daniella s 07.25.2018
I have dry skin and have been looking for a super hydrating moisturizer for a very long time. This moisturizer has worked above and beyond what I've ever dreamed of! I put it on every morning and it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the entire day <3
- evelyn h 07.25.2018
Game changer!
I have extremely sensitive skin, eczema and all. So I'm always a little nervous trying something new, but of course I just had to try this moisturizer. I applied it on before bed and awoke to find my skin completely rejuvenated, fresh AND new! Can't wait to try all the other products boscia offers and the future products to come, this is officially my go to skincare.
- celese c 07.25.2018
Holy Grail Moisturizer!
I have found my new favorite moisturizer! This is the perfect base before foundation but also keeps my skin hydrated and looking so smooth
- nala a 07.25.2018
Love it. Love it. Love it. New favorite.
This is my new favorite moisturizer. I have oily, acne prone skin. I use this daily around my eyes and in between my eyebrows where that ugly crease in the skin tends to stick out. It helps plump up my skin and diminish lines (noticeably) - which I wasn't expecting from this product. Plus I think it helps moisturize while avoiding breakouts. I've been using it for three months and I love it. Sometimes I will use it all over my face before bed at night (after washing my face). But during the day, because my skin is so oily, I only use it around my eyes and the crease between my eyebrows. If I need moisturizer all over my face, during the day when I'm out, I'll use my other favorite moisturizer, the oil-free tea tree oil moisturizer. It has a matte finish and keeps it from looking oily all day while also keeping it from looking cracked/dry (minimizing lines). But again, I was surprised at how lovely this cactus moisturizer plumps and moisturizes the skin without making it look greasy/too shiny.
boscia, please do not ever stop making the Cactus Water Moisturizer or the Tea Tree Oil moisturizer. Those two are winning products. If you ever stop making these, give us warning plenty of time in advance so I can buy 50 jars.

Not a fan!
I use to like this moisturizer but I never felt it gave me any good benefits. I found better moisturizers that really transform my skin and make me want to take a million selfies. This moisturizer does not do that for me, sorry.
- brandon m 09.22.2020
Trying Different Brands With “Resurrection Plant
I’ve been searching for a few creams with the Resurrection Plant Extract or Stem Cells from the plant. It’s supposed to be the fountain of youth. This cream has a Lower concentrated amount judging by ingredient list top to bottom. Can we get a more concentrated Resurrection Cream Boscia?
- jessie p 12.18.2018
Rolls off skin
It's an okay moisturizer, but if you plan on applying anything after it(sunscreen, foundation, etc.), be prepared that the moisturizer is going to roll off and create gel pellets that are not easy to get rid of.
- uliana s 10.16.2018
Very sticky
I don’t know if it’s just my skin but it does not dissolve at all properly. I will say it’s soo good for make-up primer. I did like the smell & it does feel good on my face but it’s extremely sticky & I won’t be buying again. I prefer the Vitamic C toner & green tea moisturizer.
- ashley s 08.26.2020
Sticky Mess
I am a huge Boscia fan and I still love their products, but I really didn't like this one. Made my face feel nasty and sticky, it didn't blend into my skin at all. I purchased this because they were out of my usual moisturizer. I won't make that mistake again. Try one of their fabulous moisturizers, like the Green Tea one.
- melissa s 05.29.2020
Perhaps not a bad moisturizer for the summer months, but when Boscia discontinued its Supercharge Overnight Moisturizer it claimed that this was the replacement. It's not. I personally refer pump packaging - I think it's less bulky to travel with and is cleaner (you're not sticking dirty fingers or tools into the product) - but regardless this moisturizer is very light and leaves combination skin feeling dry and tight. It's probably quite nice for oily skin, but a warning to all combination skin out there. I will try it again over the summer months but it's not enough for colder, dry weather. read more
- anne z 04.18.2019
This moisturizer was soothing and had a nice scent, although did not work for my skin. I have sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. This felt sticky and made my makeup look cakey. I really had high hopes that I would like this, but the texture was not cutting it for me.
