These and toilet cover sheets are the best (and cheapest) face blotting papers ever.
I discovered this by accident when I had a runny nose today and grabbed a stack from one of the fast food restaurants at my school and wow....wonders...wonders my friend.
oh, are these free? why, thank you...
i discovered these by accident, on a particularly oily day in dallas. and it appears that i'm not the only one! lol
WOw! This is why I love MUA!
I have used napkins and Clean & Clear blotter papers and those work fine. But the brown, recycled kind of napkins work the hand-down best. Amazing!
Love all the brown napkins. I love being able to see all the oil that gets blotted. Free is best.
I first read about this on the boards and what a gem it is. I never knew that the unbleached, recycled brown paper napkins can double up as oil blotters for the face. Best of all they are free!
OMG...I thought I was the only weirdo that did this!! LMAO. Glad to know I'm not the only crazy napkin lady out there. lol.
I use these too! They work better than anything else at blotting oil. Every time I go to Starbucks, Whole Foods, or anywhere else that has this kind of brown recycled napkin, I stockpile like crazy. I always like to have some on hand at the office, in my purse, in my glove compartment, etc. I use the most at home when putting on make-up though, because they're also great for blending excess foundation at the jawline, wiping off hands, and of course doing a final oil blot. Probably the biggest advantage is that I feel like I don't have to worry about how many I'm going through (since they're free, recycled and in constant supply).
You're so right! No oil-blotting paper can compare to these brown paper napkins. In Asia, one can buy cheap paper napkins at any grocery store. The downside is that these napkins are usually rough. The Starbucks ones have a smoother texture so it's kinder on the skin ... and they're FREE to boot!
OK this is hilarious LMAO. I have recently discovered the magical powers of the brown, undyed, recycled kind of napkins as well (this is the kind used at my local deli also.) They blot oil like NOTHING else! White napkins somehow don't seem to have the same magic powers. Try it, you will be amazed! And they're free!
