I don't understand why people are saying it doesn't absorb oil...I actually get a matte feeling after i blot with this. Its very handy and smart to carry around. I do have to use 4 seperate tissues to blot once all over my face (1 for each cheek, chin, and forehead) Which is kinda annoying, but i have to do that with other blotters too :) It has a tea tree oil scent, and the packaging is sturdy so it won't break easily. I reccomend :)
I have combination skin so the size wasn't an issue
i don't prefer it to seriously oily skin because you would need the whole pack of sheets in less then a week
It works and it's tea oil which helps get rid of acne
if you have dry skin this should be only used if your sweating [in gyms or during summer]
I got these in the starter pack. I don't use these very often because I'm not bothered but often I do. I usually have to use two because they're so damn small and thin. They're teatree scented so they must do skin good? Yeah I don't know. The good thing about these tissues is that they don't take my makeup off which is mega good. But I rather use cheap tissue then these cause thy do the same job. ;-) like cheapo school tissue.
I don't really love or hate these blotting tissues. My face gets pretty oily throughout the day but even though I've been carrying a pack of these around with me for YEARS, I don't think I've even used half of them.
The sheets are very tiny and I need 2-3 to almost cover my entire face. They are also very thin and break easily. Also they somewhat remove my foundation as well, which I hate. And the oil comes back within an hour anyway. They aren't that cheap either - $5 AUD for 65 tiny thin sheets.
I can live without these.

I absolutely LOVE these! I have been using these exclusively for a long time. I had tried other blotting papers (including others from The Body Shop) and was happy enough, but then decided to try these. And when I first tried them, I wasn't that happy. I was thrown by the different paper they are made from. But I quickly became a fan. I think these absorb the oil better than anything else I have tried. I get very oily in the summer. I do use 2 if it has been a long time since I put my makeup on and it is a hotter day. But I think they are priced reasonably enough.
I don't live near a Body Shop, so when we get to one, I stock up. I think the only way I will stop using these is if they quit making them.
I was looking for an oily blotting paper WITHOUT the powder for a while now and I saw this bought 2 packs, the previous rewiew is totally correct, it doesn't really blott that much oil off your face and as I have very oily skin I use 4 a go, and need to do it 3 times a day. Not worth the money at all and doesn't do it's job.
Totally useless... They don't absorb oil, and the paper is way too thin.
The sheets are tiny, but they do work. At mid-day I need two or three to do the job, though.
Pricey considering they are very small, absorb poorly, and have no clearing properties of tea tree oil. Blotting with TP will do essentially the same thing. Boscia is a much better deal and far more effective.
These tissues are useful to have around but I don't like them as much as the ones with powder on it. It doesn't absorb oil well and you have to use more than one sheet to get your whole face. The sheets are also very thin and rip very easily. Also, it contains tea tree oil but I find that it doesn't work well with clearing blemishes. I'm not a big fan of tea tree oil and I not sure if this in the blotting tissue is beneficial at all. Also, as mentioned by many reviewers below, the packaging is very annoying. They should really put a little piece of sticky tape so that it grasps one at a time, as opposed to having to touch all the pieces and try to take a little sheet out. They could also get those "tissue box" style ones like the lavender version! Sorry if that didn't make sense but I don't know what else to describe it with. Not satisfied.
