These are terrible.
The purpose of these papers are to blot oil when my skin is oily. Oily = sticky skin.
Well, no matter how delicate my technique is, there's always white opaque powder stuck to my face. What do you expect me to do with this - blot with paper first to remove excess oil? That means I need to buy another product to absorb oil! Should I try to spread out the "translucent" powder with a brush or what? How much work do I need to put in?!
These "convenient" little papers are very inconvenient to use. The powders don't absorb, the papers don't absorb because the powder gets in the way and the papers are too thick. Bad combo!

Left my skin noticably chalky and removed my makeup. Good idea; not well executed. Not recommended!

I keep these in my purse for when I need to freshen up my makeup without removing color. It takes off the oily shine -- and makes me feel fresh and glowing. I wouldn't be caught without them. Just remember to blot rather than wipe. Amazing for touch ups.

These are great if you have oily skin. They leave your skin shine-free.
For me, however, they really don't work... my skin's just too dry.

I really wanted to like these, and to a certain degree I suppose I did. They do work quite well, but they leave a weird, powdery film behind-- something I found out the hard way when I used one without a mirror and walked out in public. *shudder* Great packaging, though. It' perfect for just tossing in a purse.

I like these papers. They are inexpensive and the packaging is small and easy to carry. The package will fit in a pocket or in the tiniest of clutch handbags, and is easier to carry when you don't have room for a big compact. The papers absorb oil and also deposit some powder. The powder is very white, but if you're pale like me, you'll have no issues. They are great for maintaining a matte finish. I do find that I like to use these in front of a mirror just in case I get too much powder in one spot.

This is an inexpensive product with great packaging (small and protected sheets). However, the side with constarch left my face looking powdered. Other reviewers sstated they use the unpowdered side for best results Will try that out...

I guess I am in the minority when it comes to these. I really love them, and I have bought them several times. I actually prefer a lightly powdered tissue, since I have extremely oily skin. These are especially great in the summer. They are very conveniently packaged, and the price is very affordable, too. Overall, this is a great BB product.

I really like these Burt's Bees Powdered Rice Papers. They are blotting papers that have oil-absorbing powder on one side of them, so when you blot the oil from your face it also adds some of the powder to your skin for additional shine/oil control. This is great, because I have really oily skin in my T-zone. And these papers never leave my face with white powder residue, in fact, they are better for my oily skin touch-ups than any other blotting paper I have ever used because I don't have to follow them with an additional powder application. Usually, I will blot my shiny face with blotting papers, then touch up with translucent powder. Now, with Burt's Bees Powdered Rice Papers I no longer have that extra step of touching up with translucent powder after I blot away the shine. The Rice Paper blotters do both steps at once. I love that! And the powder has never appeared white on me, just translucent. Maybe it is because my skin is very oily, and the powder absorbs more readily into my skin than others, I don't know .... but these rice papers have been really great for my skin, and I have only good things to say about them! I will absolutely purchase these again and again! I buy these Burt's Bees Powdered Rice Papers in bulk (along with Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers!<--Gotta have my "peppermint" fix! haha!) so that I will always have them on hand! :)

These are terrible. I guess I would say that they blot up oil, but they leave large white blotches of powder on my skin. I like the Mary Kay blotters much better. Even the Cornsilk brand papers are OK.

These were crap. Like most people, I was expecting a kind of C&C blotting experience and was sadly disappointed. The sheets are thick and don't really seem to absorb anything much and they left a chalky white residue all over my face that in some places couldn't be rubbed off. I suppose the corn starch did absorb something, but why not just save your money and sprinkle corn starch all over yourself? It might actually be easier to brush off. A real disappointment from Burt's Bees and one that I'll definitely never buy again.

these were bad, but not terrible. for the money, it's ok... i guess you get what you pay for. they left a chalky white residue on my face but it did sop up the oil. i love the clean and clear ones. they are much better.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Very Oily Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Yuck, I hated this stuff. The sheets left tons of really white powder on my face and hands. I'll be sticking to clean & clear from now on.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Other, Fair-Medium Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I bought these thinking they were like Clean and Clear for a cheaper price, but I was wrong. They don't get the oil out, they disturb your makeup, and they leave weird spots of cornstarch all over your face... yuck. Stay away!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Skip this product. Bad texture, bad powder. Not worth it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Hazel
Useless. Didn't absorb any oil and left a chalky residue all over my face. I'll stick to the Clean and Clear sheets.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I expected much more from burts bees and have to say I'm very disappointed! The papers were very thick and rough and didn't take off any oil at all, the worst part of it all was that it left a visible residue on my skin it looked like I there was chalk all over my face and it wasn't easy to get off..I wouldn't buy these papers again, although it was cheap it was wasteful I threw it away!

As far as blotting papers go, this is an average product. This product, through, has the most incredible packaging (so rare for Burt's Bees). It fits nicely in my wallet, it is easy to retrieve, and it doesn't crumble or change texture.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Boy. I sure do love wiping a piece of paper covered in white powder all over my face....
these are the thickest 'blotting' sheets I've ever seen, and they don't seem to absorb oil like the other brands do. After using this, I'm left with chalky, blotchy powdered skin.
Maybe it'd work better if they used colored powder? Albinos...yeah, they could use it, and goths wearing white cake make-up. Not buying again.
