Boscia Blotting Linens

Summer is going to be here in a few months and one of the main things I have to take caution with is my skin (although I really have to do that all year round). The transition from cold weather to warmer/humid weather can really take a toll and stress out your skin, so paying attention and making the necessary changes to your skincare routine is very important.

I have combination/oily skin and in the winter it's usually not too hard to handle, maybe a few dry patches around my nose and very little oil production on my T-zone. However, in the summer, the oil production on my T-zone kind of goes out of control over the summer because it is much warmer out and having makeup on doesn't make it much better.

I decided to try oil blotting sheets and I went with the Boscia Blotting Linens in the original (perfect for all skin types) package. I have tried so many blotting sheets in the past (mainly drugstore) and I have hated all of them. The blotting sheets I have tried in the past would pick up oil, but my makeup would smudge and didn't really prevent further oil production.  The Boscia Blotting Linens, however, I am absolutely IN LOVE with! It seriously has to be the HG of all blotting sheets. They absorb any excess oil and shine without smudging or removing any of my makeup.  It is made of 100% linen and is the perfect size (twice the size of most blotting sheets) to get the job done. With most other sheets I find that I have to use at least 2 sheets, but with Boscia one is more than enough.

The blotting sheets are packaged in a very compact holder that fits perfectly anywhere. The sheets are priced at $10 for 100 sheets, which I find is a great price because they get the job done and I have never been so pleased with a product like this. I don't even have to re-powder myself after blotting because I still have the coverage I want and a matte finish. Boscia makes these blotting linens in 2 different packages, the original (perfect for all skin types) and the Green Tea (all skin types, and sensitive). I definitely recommend this to anyone out there and am definitely going to be repurchasing the blotting linens. I carry this everywhere with me in my hand bag for emergency touch ups, and sometimes that's all I need to make myself look fresh throughout the day.
