i used to love these...but like someone else mentioned, using tissues for oil absorption are just as good. these certainly get rid of the shinies, and the price is really good (esp. if you pick them up from HK, where you can get a pack for around Au$2!??). they do have a tendency to wipe off my makeup during the day if im not careful - so i always have to blot infront of a mirror, and i cant apply too much pressure. other than that - these are a pretty good budget find.
i used this last year, and didn't like it, it looked cheap in my bag. I like to have blotting paper at Sephora more w/ price 10$ for 100 sheets.
These used to be my HG blotting tissues. Sadly, I will never buy them again. As another reviewer stated, they have mineral oil in them. Why would you put that on your face? I have never attributed a breakout to these, but why continue to use them when there are tissues just as good (I have recently discovered) that are free from oils? THE PROS: These are really great at soaking up oil. I love the fact that the blue tissue turns darker so you can see just how good they are working. The tissue is almost a thin rubber like substance. They stretch and are more durable than traditional thin tissues. They work without using powder. THE CONS: Mineral oil, they are very tiny. You have to use at least a couple each time you blot. Several for your whole face. They are BRIGHT blue. The packaging could be better.
I use this product a lot during the summer (2x a day) but found it a little pricey at .10cents per sheet. Tried other (cheaper) brands but came back to this one - it rocks! I did find a better price on Ebay, tho, so now I stock up.
EDIT: A friend of mine got me hooked on toilet seat covers. Work just as well, and they're free. My co-workers think I'm nuts, tho!
I don't use this product anymore because I found that a tissue or napskin worked as well as this oil absorbing sheet. It absorbs oil VERY well and I think it's a good product for the price. I hated looking at it after it's done its job though... all that oil rubbed off of my face... just gross! Well, my final thought is that buying a good blotting powder will eventually save you money because this stuff costs around $3 and runs out pretty quickly. I am thinking about getting MAC blot powder ($17.50) since people are raving about it.
I never leave the house without a packet of these. I keep one in my purse, one in my makeup bag, and one in car so that Iím always prepared. During the 90 degree Florida summers these sheets save my life. I have to use quiet a few after a walk across campus, but they leave my skin looking clean and fresh, and my makeup stays perfectly intact if it hasnít already been melted away by the sweltering sun. I absolutely adore these oil absorbing sheets!
I've used these on an off for years, and no matter what else I try, I always come back to them. No, they aren't pretty, but they're a fantastic deal and they do the job. They lift the oilies without disturbing any of your makeup. Other blotting sheets I've used tend to disturb your makeup, or leave too much powder behind. These are just right! I've been buying them for years, keept them stashed everywhere, and every once in a while I think I've found something better, and before you know it, I'm back with these. Every single time.
I believe the only reason this gets such high reviews is because it's so cheap. It works just the same as any other oil blotting sheets I've used. I'd rather pay the higher price for something that looks PRETTY coming out of my purse. The packaging is horribly unattractive and cheap-looking.
I agree with all of the terrific reviews. This is the only method of oil-blotting that works without applying something to your face, or taking something off. What I mean is - it removes oil without affecting your makeup. Awesome product!
I have one of these with my makeup and one in my purse. I LOVE this product! I use them whenever my face it oily (which is a lot) and they don't smear my makeup!! These are the best oil absorbing sheets I have found. They should get 10 lipsticks!!
