Better than any oil absorbing sheet I've ever used!!!
HAHA!!! didnt know this was a MUA topic. lol. i use these all the time especially when im waiting 4 my daughter to finish using the toilet. im very oily and these just seem to matte me back up. this is too funny, really.
I road tripped it across the continental US and the toilet seat covers in shady rest stops is what kept my face nice and shine free. :)
Just make sure you use the non-shiny side. ;)
Oh good! I've been wondering if MUA had heard the glorious news of the toilet seat cover!
I've been touting this to people for YEARS. They find it hilarious that I sit there with a toilet seat cover pressed to my face while I'm peeing! Heee
Just use them at your convenience, or grab a few, cut them up into pieces (so no one knows what they are at first glance) and keep them in your purse or desk drawer.
I could never understand why anyone would BUY something like this when they are free in public restrooms around the world!
Yesterday after PE, my face was looking SUPER oily... I was getting desperate and I remembered that someone told me you could use toilet seat covers as blotting paper. So I tried it, and it works wonderfully! Just as good if not better than most blotting papers. It doesn't leave skin matte (obviously, there's no powder), but it looks probably 75% less oily.
The downside is that some of the makeup I was wearing came off with it.
Now... I'm going to try using those infamous Starbucks napkins next.
Its free and it works! I love it. I like to tear out the middle and use that part to blot. =)
However, Ive never really thought about taking some like the others on here have mentioned.. Its on my to do list for tomrrow when im at school. =D
Excellent. Whenever I see these in restaurants, I stockpile them. I bring them home and cut them into small squares in a little mirrored case.
They're great because they don't leave any residue film. It may take a lot of little square sheets to get the oil off your face, but it is definitely worth it since they are FREE.
Seriously, you guys: as long as you have free toilet seat covers, there is no reason on this good green earth for you to actually PURCHASE blotting sheets. TSCs are: a) free, b) widely available, c) do not transfer powder to your face, and most importantly, d) excellent at absorbing facial oil and mattifying your face. I've read of others cutting them up into travel-sized squares and putting them into a pretty box that they can carry around and use whenever, without embarrassment. Not me. I always mean to do this, but I just go into my office's bathroom, take one, press it all over my greasy face, and voila. Not only to they work so well, you also feel very smart, sneaky and even a little smug for being so resourceful and putting one over on The Man and his unfree, pre-packaged blotting products.
Also, I don't wear foundation anymore, but when I've pressed a section of TSC on my deep-set and oily eyelids, it does not mess up my eyeshadow.
I'm such a shameless blotting whore...I actually stole a pack of these seat covers from work a while back. Yes, stealing is wrong, but heck, I use them all the time while I'm there anyway so what's a few missing sheets gonna hurt? Best of all they are free, and do not contain MINERAL OIL like C&C. All you gotta do is cut em up into pieces.
When I first heard about the greatness of toilet seat covers to blot facial oil from a Japanese classmate, I was skeptical. She told me she heard from others but she never tried. I used to work at a Japanese company and my Japanese boss boosted that Japanese toilets are very clean; even the toilet water is as clean as drinking water. Of course, he never drunk from there :)
Anyway, I have very oily face and no matter what I used, I had to watch in the mirror often and blot all the time. I bought C&C sheets but sometimes, I forgot to bring into toilet and noticed my oily face so I tried seat cover sheets depending on the cleanliness of the toilet to blot my face. When I worked at a large law firm, the toilet was pretty clean so I used almost everyday to steer my oil production from the face. A few weeks later, I had weired breakouts. I stopped using since then though I saw in a beauty magazine that a guru fixed a celebrity with toilet paper in emergency.
I recently bought Papier Poudré Oil Blotting Papers from an on-line seller from HK but the size is so tiny to blot my face. So did my research and found out that the packing paper (to pack fragile items) are the same materials as toilet seat covers. Right now, I have some and cut in smaller sizes and keep in a zip lock bag. Just be careful if you use toilet seat covers. I suffered acnes over 10 years so I don't want any bump on my face.
