Bocassy Hydrating Gel-Cream & Night Cream + Giveaway!


A relatively new, definitely expanding skincare brand Bocassy Paris is a certain France/Croatia merger result, bringing best expertise, class and aesthetic from both countries. I have recently had the chance to test these intriguing products parallel with their arrival to the market in my country (Bosnia and  Herzegovina). I find that it's quite unfortunate that these products fall into the middle price range because they feel like they belong in a higher class of skincare (which would make pricing even higher) but for it to be widely accepted, a lower price point would be advisable – especially for a newer brand.I have had the pleasure to test on myself. This brand is specific due to the little touches you notice as a user/customer and they truly are a smart move. The velvety oxblood packaging, the romantic quotes, transparency of the ingredients list, protective sticker seal – they tick all the right boxes. However, I'm opting not to wax lyrical about it all. Yes, the aesthetic is beautiful and adds a luxe touch, quotes are indeed thoughtful and ingredients seem to be rather impressive with all the butters, oils and extracts.  However, my experience tells me that a a good (or pristine) ingredients list doesn't vouch for perfect results. If you're an ingredient puritan, knock yourself out whilst you're examinig them one by one but I'll focus on the effects these creams had on my skin over the period of 2+ months

Relativno novi preparativni brend koji trenutno biljezi fazu rasta je Bocassy Paris. Ovaj brend je svojevrsna unija Francuske i Hrvatske a cini mi se da je upravo najbolje od obje zemlje utjelovljeno u ovim proizvodima (od strucnosti, elegancije do primamljive estetike). Nedavno mi se pruzila prilika da isprobam ove intrigantne proizvode paralelno sa njihovim dolaskom na BiH trziste. Mislim da se cjenovno nalaze u prilicno nezavidnoj poziciji – u srednjem segmentu (35KM-45KM). Ovo mislim ponajvise zato sto ostavljaju dojam mnogo skupocjenije preparative (sto bi ujedno podiglo cijenu) no da bi se jedan novi brend predstavio sirem auditoriju, mislim da bi nesto nize cijene bile pametan potez. Posto je Bocassy dostupan u dm-u, mozda da lovimo popuste/akcije? Ovaj brend je specifican po sitnim detaljima koje cete primjetiti kao kupac/korisnik. Barsunasto na dodir i elegantno bordo pakovanje, romanticni citati, transparentnost koristenih sastojaka, naljepnica koja garantuje da proizvod nije otvaran prije vas – zaista su lijepi aduti. No, ipak se necu fokusirati na njih. Da, estetika je impresivna, kao sto su i dirljivi citati i prilicno solidna lista sastojaka uz ulja, buttere i ekstrakte. No moje iskustvo mi govori da sastojci koji obecavaju u teoriji ne moraju nuzno da znace kako ce proizvod biti efektan u praksi. Ukoliko ste puritanac po ovome pitanju, slobodno se zabavite izucavanjem svih sastojaka – licno cu se fokusirati na konkretne rezultate koje sam primjetila sa ovim kremama tokom perioda od 2+ mjeseca intenzivnog koristenja.

My personal favorite, a cream so fine and so potent, catapulted itself onto spot number one – the best night cream in my opinion is the Bocassy Hydrating Night Cream (50ml costs approx 22€). It is of a medium thick borderline light texture, ivory coloring and of a specific scent which is present with all the Bocassy products but its intensity varies from cream to serum. It smells herbal/fruity and my nose detects a dominant pear-like olfactory note. I love this smell but if you're of a sensitive nose – try before a purchase. This cream is intensely hydrating and almost nourishing. It doesn't sink in immediately but it doesn't leave an uncomfortable residue either. If your skin is very oily, prone to clogging, blemishes and acne – skip it. Even though it's a night cream and stronger care is what we expect, it probably will be too rich for you. If your skin is combination, normal and dehydrated – this will become a backbone of your skincare regime. It plumps the skin, nourishes it deeply, promotes healing and makes skin much younger-looking. After you apply it at night, by the morning it will do its magic so effectively that you'll gasp when you see your reflection. It's the epitome of nighttime skincare. It definitely boosts hydration levels, refines fine lines, makes skin incredibly soft and smooth. Applying make-up in the morning becomes enjoyable instead of a boring routine. My eye picks up on how better my make-up looks when I use this night cream. After I have a blemish, probably pick on it and have a scarring tissue to heal – I turn to this cream. Within five to seven days my complexion looks amazingly even, scarring tissue evens up with the rest of the skin, reddish coloring is taken down and starts to fade visibly. I have many night creams in my stash and I could go wild with them all but my nights are exclusively reserved for this night cream. It's by far the best one I've ever tried and if you fit in the potential user group – please give it a go. I can almost vouch that you'll love it!

Moj licni favorit, krema toliko mocna i prefinjena da se katapultirala na samo prvo mjesto i ujedno najbolja nocna krema koju sam isprobala je Bocassy Hidratantna Nocna Krema (50ml kosta cca 40KM). Srednje je guste teksture no na svoj nacin i lagana, boje je bjelokosti i specificnog mirisa koji prozima sve Bocassy proizvode no intenzitet varira od kreme do seruma. Mirise biljno/vocno uz notu kruske koju moj nos detektuje kao dominantnu. Meni se ovaj miris jako dopada no ako ste osjetljivog nosa – preporucujem testiranje prije kupovine. Djelovanje kreme je intenzivno glede hidratacije i granici sa hranljivom kategorijom. Ne upija se trenutacno u kozu ali nece ostaviti ni neprijatan sloj na kozi. Ukoliko vam je koza izrazito masna, sklona zacepljenjima, bubuljicama i aknama – preskocite je. Iako pri spomenu nocne kreme ocekujemo intenzivniju njegu, velika je vjerovatnoca da bi u vasem slucaju bila isuvise bogata. Ako je pak vasa koza mjesovita, normalna ili dehidrirana – ova krema ce postati okosnica vaseg cjelokupnog rezima njege koze! Kozu cini punijom, dubinski je hidratizira, ubrzava zacjeljivanje i cini da ten djeluje dosta mladje, svjezije i ljepse. Nakon koristenja nocu, ujutro se uvijek iznenadim izgledom svog lica. Ovo je nesto sto bih nazvala savrsenim predstavnikom teorije da nocne kreme cine ogromnu razliku. Znacajno hidratizira kozu, fine linije na celu i oko usta su manje vidljive, koza je fantasticno meka i zagladjena. Nanosenje sminke je ujutro postalo uzitak umjesto dosadne rutine zahvaljujuci njoj. Sminka (pogotovo tecne podloge) jednostavno ljepse izgledaju na kozi kada je koristim. Ako sam imala bubuljicu koju sam dirala, ostao je oziljak u vidu crvene fleke – ova krema mi pomaze. U roku pet do sedam dana koristenja, mjesto oziljka se ujednaci sa okolnom kozom, crvenilo je smanjeno i pocinje da blijedi. Rezultat je ten koji djeluje ujednaceno i svjeze. Pored velike kolicine nocnih krema koje imam u kolekciji, ja sam svoje noci rezervisala iskljucivo za ovu kremu. Nadaleko je najbolja nocna krema od svih i ako mislite da spadate u grupu potencijalnih korisnica snazno preporucujem da je isprobate – velika je mogucnost da cete ostati odusevljene poput mene.

Bocassy Hydrating Gel-Cream (50ml costs approx 22€) has proven to be one of the rare few gel day creams which don't dry out my skin after a prolongued use. It's more of a hydrating, cooling day cream than a gel really but after it sinks in (which is moderately fast), it does give off that lightness gel daily moisturizers usually have. The pear-like fragrance is also present but a notch less prominent that with the night cream. I've noticed that it is a good make-up base in general but it doesn't layer up well with BB/CC creams or any type of liquid foundation which is sillicone-based (you get those annoying crumbly particles). It would be too rich for oily skin and combination skin with a prominent T-zone but it would work perfectly for regular combination and normal skin type, maybe even lightly dehydrated. Dry skin would eat it up within seconds. It doesn't cater to a broad skin type spectrum but that's the case with all gel day creams. It makes skin smooth and soft and it doesn't disturb blemishes and it didn't break me out as nor has the night cream. But, regardless of all the positive points it gets – it simply lacks the wow factor I have noticed with the night cream from the brand. It feels like it gets lost in the sea of similar products while the night cream is a real standout! Also, the packaging is beautiful and the presentation is immaculate, but I had a hard time with the lid being brought back on the jar after use a few times too often. I haven't had problems with the font on the label rubbing off and packaging still looks as good as new. 

Bocassy Hidratantni Gel-Krema (50ml kosta cca 40KM) se pokazala kao jedna od rijetkih gel formulacija koja mi na duze staze nije isusila kozu. Mene vise asocira na laganu, gotovo pa hladecu hidratantnu kremu nego gel. Ali nakon upijanja (koje je srednje brzo), ostavlja osjecaj lakoce na kozi kakav povezujem sa gel dnevnim kremama. Miris kruske je takodjer prisutan ali nesto blazi nego kod nocne kreme. Primjetila sam da je ova krema uopsteno dobra baza za sminku ali se ne slaze najbolje sa BB/CC kremama i uopsteno tecnom sminkom koja sadrzi silikone (pojavljuju se grudvice na povrsini lica). Bila bi previse bogata za masnu kozu ili mjesovitu kozu sa izrazenom T-zonom. Umjereno mjesovitoj, normalnoj pa cak i dehidriranoj kozi bi bila odgovarajuca dok bi je suha koza ‘pojela’ u roku par minuta. Ne sluzi sirokom spektru tipova koze no to je slucaj sa svim gel kremama. Zagladjuje kozu, hidratizira je, ne ometa bubuljice niti mi ih je izazvala (kao sto nije ni nocna krema). Bez obzira na pozitivne bodove koje joj dodjeljujem, naprosto osjecam da joj nedostaje ‘ono nesto’ sto sam primjetila kod nocne kreme. Pod dojmom sam da se gubi u moru slicnih proizvoda dok je nocna krema klasa za sebe i definitivno se istice! Iako je pakovanje ovih krema lijepo, primjetila sam da cesto imam problema sa vracanjem poklopca nakon upotrebe (kao da ne nalijeze najbolje). Takodjer, slova na naljepnici se nisu izlizala i jos uvijek pakovanje izgleda kao novo.
