boscia vs. clean&clear brand
how does boscia compare to the blue clean and clear oil absorbing sheets sold at drugstores? the clean and clear ones have 50 sheets that are 1.9 x 3.1 in. (5 x 8 cm) and are roughly $5, so the pricing is similar considering you get 100 for $10 with the boscia. are the boscia ones bigger? do they work better? how often do you blot? (i have combination skin, oily in the t-zone) thanks a million.

Ive tried both and prefer Boscia. The Boscia are more paper tissue like and the Clean and Clear are more plastic like.

These are a better value than the drugstore kind. The dispenser is easier to use and stays assembled longer, the material is better for your skin, and the surface area of these tissues is larger than the blue kind.

The Boscia products are all natural...no synthetic ingredients. The same does not apply to Clean and Clear products. The C & C blotting clothes seem like they are made out of a plasticy type product, which I did not care for at all because in addition to being synthetic it didn't do as good of a job absorbing oil.

I used to always use the blue ones from the drugstore and found out they can contain mineral oil, which is not good for us dewy people. :) The Boscia sheets are bigger, and I find they work better. Only a light dab and they suck off the oil without disturbing makeup. With the blue drugstore ones, i'd always see some foundation/powder/whatever on them and just knew my red nose was exposed. Also- the scent isn't all that noticeable to me. I'd say give these a try.

Clean and clear sheets are smaller and you would need at least 2 sheets to finish your entire face. I have used it before when Sephora was not around.

Personally i prefer the boscia blotting linens so much more than the clean and clear ones. For one they are MUCH bigger than the clean and clear so u only need to use one instead of maybe 2 of the blue ones...and since there are 100 sheets oppose to the 50, they last forever!!! Depending on how oily ur skin is, depends on how often u will use them. I dont have very oily skin but in the summer the humidity really makes me oilier than normal and they work so good! I would say give them a shot, u can always return them if u prefer the clean and clear, so its a win win situation!!

I like these ones better because they dont take the make up off, only the oil. I have oily-combination skin too, I use this about once a day, depending on the humidity and the weather. In the summer, I could use it twice. They are bigger than the C&C ones, but are slightly thinner, so I fold it in half. The price is the same, but I like these ones better.
My skin is combination oily, T-zone and cheeks. Bosca brand is non-chemical and therefore better than C&C, also in-store price in my area (DC Metro), C&C are 5.99 for 50, so Bosca is a better bargain, and Bosca is better as barely scented, almost not existent, better in my opinon, as I favor scent-free stuff.
These boscia papers are far more effective than the clean and clear ones. Clean & clear papers are smaller and don"t seem to absorb as much oil. I have combination skin and on extremely hot and humid days may have to use 3-4 Boscia papers. Clean and clear would be a few more
As mentioned, the Boscia blotting linens are made from abaca leaf (Manila hemp). The scented varieties contain natural extracts/essences.
The Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets contain Dimethylbenzylidene, Mineral Oil, Polypropylene, Sorbitol, Ultramarines. The Clean & Clear Morning Burst Oil Absorbing Sheets contain the same ingredients with the addition of Fragrance as the second ingredient.
Yeah, the Boscia sheets are bigger, and to me they seem to get more oil. I used to use the clean and clear ones until I came upon these. I have very oily skin so I use 2-3 of them about three times a day. I prefer the way they feel. They are also more natural.
I think the size of the sheets from both brands are comparable, but the Clean & Clear ones feel rubbery and might have powder on them to help blot more oil and keep makeup looking matte. Personally, I think the Boscia ones do a better job absorbing oil, at all times of the day (and night!); I also have combination skin and blot every few (2-5) hours. They also have a soft, smooth, papery quality, and I especially love how they're all-natural (100% abaca leaf fibers) and feel gentle on the skin. I recommend them (love the original), and, if you choose to try them, hope you like them, too!
