This is an awesome product and easy to see all the oil you've removed. I have a really oily T-zone and almost turn the whole sheet clear. I don't remeber having more breakouts since I used it, but sometimes I also switch to the knockoff CVS brand of this. (its pretty much a cheap dupe :))
I don't think I would buy this again, I would buy the CVS brand. (They are carbon copies of eachother) If you have oily skin, I highly recommend using this. I don't know what it does to makeup because I use powder as a mattifer. It is great to see how much oil it collects. It doesn't seem to remove the shine from my face, so I still use my powder. I never expected it too, honestly.
I have been using these oil blotting sheets for yeeeears. They do a great job of removing oil, but the packaging says that it doesn't mess up your makeup and I have found that to be untrue. I wear light foundation all over my face and every time I use these sheets I see my makeup coming off onto the sheet. After many uses I can see my makeup wearing off. I still use it anyway because I have extremely oily skin, so it's a compromise. These can be very expensive for sheets of plastic, so I recommend buying the store brand ones that look and work EXACTLY the same (I only buy the Clean and Clear ones when they are out of the store brand ones). I never notice the difference, except that the store brand ones can be a couple of dollars cheaper. Also since people will oily skin are probably reading reviews for this product I would like to share what I have been taking for my extremely oily skin, spironolactone. It was prescribed to me by my dermatologist and it has literally changed my life. I've had very oily skin since I can remember, for over a decade now and I'm 23. I know how it can impact your self esteem, having very oily skin. And FYI I have extremely oily skin, not just a bit of oil sometimes so if you are like me I would recommend that you ask your derm about it because it has helped me a lot. Good luck!
I don't know what I would do without these! I have the oiliest skin of anyone I have ever seen - I sometimes use two sheets at a time to get all the oil. I go through at least a pack a month but it's totally worth it because they're the only thing that soaks up the oil properly. If I use an oil sheet then powder my T-zone I'm good for a few hours. I can barely remember a time when I didn't use these and I would totally be lost if they ever stopped being made.
I love these. I do not have oily skin but I do use these after applying sunscreen so my face isn't so greasy looking.I got mine in a special 2 pack deal at Target for 6.99.So I thought it was a good deal for 100 blotting sheets that I really only use when doing oily skinned girls makeup and in the summer before I go out in the sun.
Seems to take oil off face. Only stopped using because derm. told me that these actually have chemicals in the that make you produce more oil and clog pores.I do admit I have less acne since stopped using them!
Absolute necessity in my makeup bag. I never leave the house without these. Comes in handy in situations where you don't have time to do the powder routine... better than putting on more powder and caking up your face. If it's the end of the work day, you have last minute plans to meet up with people and there's no time to go home and wash your face, these sheets are a lifesaver.
These are wonderful. They absorb oil without removing make-up. My T-zone gets oily as the day goes on and I find using one of these helps very much. Definitely recommended.
These are the only oil absorbing sheets I have ever bought/tried. I used to use them everyday after i applied my foundation (Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua) and they worked great (never absorbed my foundation, just the oil). I began using Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin, and when i would try to use these sheets, ALL my foundation would come off with it. This is very dissapointing considering the fact that the colorstay foundation make me look ridiculiously oily. I can now only use these sheets when not wearing makeup, but i believe its the colorstay and not the sheets that are causing this.
These are the worst. Broke me out like crazy and it feels like I'm putting straight plastic on my face. I had suspected these were the reason I had been breaking out and now it's been confirmed here. Hate em and will NEVER buy them again. I used to swear by Shiseido's blotting papers but they have gotten too expensive. Will have to check out the perm wraps as others have suggested.
