The white comes in a tube instead of a jar, is slightly less sticky and has an herbal rather than a floral fragrance. The ingredients are slightly different, but the performance in the hair is the same. Both are CG-friendly.
They do not resemble any other cream stylers. Boots cream is very moisturizing compared to other stylers. It is great for clumping curls. I use it alone, but many people add a gel on top.
