These do help to mop up the oil on your face leaving you with a matte look. In that regard they work great! I find them a little small and wish they were a little bigger. I used them for several years without ever reading the ingredient list. I finally did and say they contain polypropylene and mineral oil. Errrmmmm...no thanks. I stopped using them immediatly. I used to get regular break outs/pimples.....all gone! I will not be buying these sheets again.
I love this! I don't know what I would do without them...my skin is very oily but with one of these sheets, my face looks like I freshly applied my makeup. these sheets will not remove any of your makeup-- just the grease! And they are easy to carry around.
I cannot live without these. I have a pack in my makeup bag, one in my purse, one in my school bag, etc. I am very oily, and these absorb all the oil better than anything else I have ever tried, without disturbing my makeup. They are not rice paper, but some sort of weird plastic-y material that turns clear when it has absorbed oil. This allows for one of those fascinated "ew" moments like pulling off a Biore strip -- very satisfying. :D The packaging is terrible but the product is so good that I can deal.
These are the exact same thing as MAC's sheets, only there are almost twice as many for nearly half the price. I always have a pack with me.
I have the absolute oilest skin on the East Coast but this product slurps it right up. Sometimes I have to use 3-4 sheets to get desired results however I believe its my body chemistry and not a reflection on Clean & Clear. For those who haven't tried it, the blue sheets come in a small blue box with a piece of tape on the underside of the cover. The product is easy to use and fits comfortably in small bags. You get a fair amount of sheets for the price (around $5.50 USD). I didn't give the product a 5 in overall rating because Bath & Body had oil absorbent sheets under its Bio line that were very cheap, around $3 USD, that were as good if not better than Clean & Clear. This is a definite re-buy, as I've done in the past, if I can find more. I've tried cheaper drugstore brands but they didn't work as well and had the thin texture of end papers that you use with rollers. Ugh. I almost forgot, these sheets didn't leave any powdery substance on my face that I've experienced with other brands. So for ladies of color, like myself (MAC NC43), you won't end up with that chalky powder look on your face in your quest to get rid of the shine. continued >>
These are an essential item for my make up bag when i don't have my hard candy obleterate powder. I hate caking-on make up to cover oily spots so these do the trick.
These sheets are also a staple with me. I have an oily T-Zone and I hate putting on powder to mattify my face because I can still feel the oil still sitting on the surface of my skin even though it no longer looks oily. These sheets absorb the oil and they absorb much more per sheet than other brands that use rice paper. Plus the package is slim enough that I can tuck it into my smallest bag.
The only cons with this product is the packaging and color (as others have already pointed out): when you get to the last few sheets, the cover always begins pulling out 2-3 sheets and it's a pain trying to tuck the extra sheets back in...; I too find it grossly fascinating at how much oil I remove from my face but would prefer that it wasn't so obvious...
I never go anywhere without these. My face is soooo oily, especially during Atlanta summers. These grab off all the oil without leaving behind powder (which I hate) or taking off more than a smidgeon of makeup. However, they are so tiny. On really bad days I feel like I have to use three or so at a time to get everything. I hate the package. I'm not sure how cardboard and double sided tape sounded like a winner for packaging.I wonder if I'm destroying the enviroment with the plastic-y sheets. Still, I've gone through several packs and I'm still buying them.
These things are handy for sure! They do lift a little bit of makeup but what doesn't. The packaging is not so fab but I find they fit perfectly into those cute card holders you can buy in the girly stores. I bought one with a picture of Audrey Hepburn.
Definitely worth a try!
I completely agree with the enthusiastic reviewer below! Go buy these! They do work better than any other product I've used... they get rid of the grease and shine in a snap! I just blot with one, brush on some loose powder and it looks like I just applied my makeup! outstanding!
