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.
This product was the first one I ever tried for oil removal as I've only started to get oily skin recently. I was absolutely in love with this product the first couple of times I used it. I even mentioned the sheets to a friend of mine who has oily skin. She told me that she has used them before and that they caused a huge break out on her forehead. I thought it was odd. However, after a few days I noticed pimples on my forehead which didn't look like the regular types of pimples that I get from time to time. These were very little and were popping up in some sort of a pattern, lots scattered in one area. Since, I have stopped using the product and can't say that I would buy again... Although if it wasn't for the break outs, this product would have been amaaaaze.
These oil absorbing sheets were the first ones I tried out and I really liked them. My skin gets oily throughout the day without my foundation on and these sheets removed the shine really nicely. However, it's probably just because my skin gets really oily or what not, but after using those sheets, I'm only shine free for maybe an hour or so and then I'd have to use them again.
But now that I can control my skin a little better, I probably won't buy these sheets otherwise.
i love this blotter! i love this so much that i keep on buying other blotters (different brands, different kinds, different formulations) just to see how well this fares when pitted against others---and this always comes up on top. this absorbs oil so easily and it doesn't react to my acne-prone skin. using this prevents me from resorting to powdering my oily areas (which always leaves a cakey feel!) in short, this keeps my make-up looking fresh!
