Lol I was shocked to find out how many people use these too! But definately not surprised at their reactions to it! These toilet seat covers are AMAZING for blotting! I thought the idea was crazy til one day when I was at church, I decided to rip out a small piece and try it myself =) they work just as great as other drugstore brand names but these are FREE ;) I cut them up into squares and place them in a small travel size container from Target that I can easily fit into my bag =) works great!!
I don't get the rave.
Got the perm papers that someone suggested since they're made of the same material but found the overall performance rather disappointing.
Yes, they are dirt cheap, nicely cut and you get a huge amount of them.
They somewhat reduce the shine but not nearly as much as other blotting papers (my favorites are by MAC and Shiseido)
I'd rather spend a few bucks and get something that works.
lol, my roommate in college told me about using toilet seat covers as blotting paper and I've been using it since! Use the middle to blot and the surrounding parts to sit on. :)
OMG, I am cracking up at these reviews!!! Especially the ones that are reviewing toilet seat covers AS a toilet seat cover...LOL!! Anyway, its kinda gross where they come from, but these are great for oil blotting and FREE!! I cut some up and put them in an empty travel size J&J First Aid plastic box and keep it in my purse.
Hahaha, this is so much fun. I was like wtf? :P Anyway, this is what I have been doing for years! First I was reading Jessica Parker's interview where she said she is using toilet covers as blotting sheets. I was like - really?! Ok, if SHE is using them, why can't I try! So I tried it, it was (and still is, hehe) FREE - and works the same as any other expensive ones. I do not buy any Sephora, Boscia, Clean&Clear or other blotting sheets ever - I just use these!
Packaging: hmmm... well....
Would I buy this again?... You mean - Will I USE these again?! Oh yeah...!!
It's hysterical -- I thought I was the only one who used these things! They're absolutely perfect for blotting the oil slick that is my face. The thing that's really embarrassing is that I actually bought toilet seat covers at Amazon. Therefore I have a never-ending supply, since it comes in a case of 1,000. This is the perfect thickness to blot oil. Once you use it, you never want to pay the price of blotting papers. Why should you? These are the best!
Been doing this forever...............LOL tissue paper also works, but you have to cut it up :(
hahahha SO glad I'm not the only one! I discovered this trick in high school, & now that I'm in college I'm STILL doing it. Sometimes, I go to public restrooms just so I can go "blot my face." LOL
Ha! I thought I was the only one! My sister tipped me on this trick a couple yrs ago and in a pinch it works great. Reading other reviews I saw that punkrockzoie also suggest 'perm papers'......that's a great idea esp if u can get a thousand sheets for $2. I couldn't love MUA any more than I do...sigh. ;)
I just started using toilet seat cover as blotting sheets. They work the same way and i don't have to spend a penny. I have oily skin, so i go through a pack of blot sheets very quick.
I might go to Sally's and get the perm sheets. But when i'm at a public restroom and don't have blotting sheets, i always grab a seat cover and use it. I don't know if there's different types of seat covers, but the one i use have two sides. One side is matte and one side is glossy. i usually use the glossy side but when i feel extra oily, i use the matte side.
I don't have to but blotting sheets ever again but i will definitely use seat covers again.
