I had picked up a couple packages of these blotting papers during a sales promotion in the store, I figured stocking up a few is not a problem since I will always use blotting papers and all blotting papers are pretty much the same. Boy was I wrong -- these are the worst blotting papers I have ever tried (and I have tried a lot), these sheets very flimsy and barely absorb any oil at all (in fact, they almost remind me of flimsy wax paper!). I had to use 5 or 6 sheets at one time just to blot a bit of shine! And tea tree is supposed to be good for preventing blemishes -- I swear these blotting papers make me break out more because it doesn't blot well. Like another reviewer mentioned below, using tissue paper is better than this. Don't waste your money and stay away from this product. The Body Shop's Mineral Powder Blotting Tissue is so much better and I always buy those instead.

I tried these in the store and was disappointed. The paper is really flimsy and not very absorbent. Palladio makes far superior blotting papers in cuter packaging for less money. Don't waste your money on these.

These just doesn't work! I have an oily t-zone and when I found these I got really exited but when I dab my nose or chin with them nothing really happens. Might as well just regular tissue paper.

I'm a big sucker for cheap prices and good quality products, and I thought The Body Shop Tea blotting tissues can tame my oily T-zone. However, it didn't work out for me. That doesn't mean it might not work out for you, I will still recommend to use this during photographs beforehand.The packaging is very simple and hygienic, it's recyclable. The product is a one of those makeup/skincare brands out there that doesn't test on animal and usually natural ingredients like Lush does. I bought mine at my local Body Shop store. Tea tree is known for it's abilities to help reduce and eliminate blemishes and fade pimple/ acne scars, works super well with skin types of combination/oily/blemish-prone/acne-prone.
Well, let me tell you about my experience of using this baby. First time I used it, it absorbs all the oil on my nose and I was so quite satisfied with it. After 10 minutes or so, my nose felt and bit greasy and heavy, the oil came back. From that, I usually blot my face like crazy, at least 8 times a day, not very convenient. Girls, there are lots of better options out there, if I would recommend some I would say BABY POWDER. It cost as cheap as TheBodyShop Tea Tree Oil blotting tissure and works twice as better. However, the powder might be a bit messy to use, but hey, it keep the oil at bay the whole day, by all means, I would use it.

I had high hopes about these blotting tissues but they didn't work for me. Every time I touched my skin with them I had some small red dots plus they made my skin more oily. Weird.

After using many random japanese blotting papers over the years, have tried these and I can tell you you need 3-4 to do your whole face unlike powder type blotting papers from japan. These are also pretty expensive, even though you get a decent amount in the packet, you have to use more. Wouldn't repurchase.

I have purchased this product again and again for many years. I must have for an oily t-zone. I love that it doesn't take my makeup off if I blot. I love seeing the oil on the tissue paper **obsessed** and I love that tea tree is going onto my skin and making it better. I have the little silver tin and throw it into my purse. My friends laugh when they see me with these little tissues.......:-) If you have oily or combination skin then this is for you,

You think that all blotting tissue is the same?
This is the best, no if or buts.
And with that comes a pricetag.
This is great for those who have problems with acne. If you have a general oily face, you will need two of these to get all the oil. For the regular combination skins types, one should suffice.
The thing about this product is that it is aimed for those who have problems with acne. It's not really meant for EVERYDAY use. (This is why it can get pricey.)
I use the Clean and Clear blotting tissues, but as soon as I feel a pimple coming on, I switch to these. It reduces my pimple size to half and because they are small, they (the pimple) does not remain as long.
They are also great because unlike those that have powder or some stuff on it, this sheet purely blots, so you can be sure if your makeup stays on.
You do want to make sure you are okay with Tea Tree oil though, since this does carry it's smell. I'm okay with it because I grew up with the smell of Chinese medicine. Your significant other might be as pleased = )

I really wanted to like these since they are about half the price of the Inlogt ones and I don't have to go to the other side of Brisbane to get them. Unfortunately, where I would use one Inglot sheet, I have to use 3 or 4 of these. They are far to thin for me and while I do have oily skin, its not excessive. Not a fan. I'm going back to my reliable Inglot ones.

I really wanted to try this blotting tissue since i didn't like some brand that has already powder in it, I really have an oily skin so I think that is the reason why i use it twice a day before retouching my face, so far I like it but I may want to try another product next time an inexpensive one that works well, i don't get the tea tree stuff at all as long as it really absorbs the oil on my face, oh and what I really like about this is their packaging (the latest one), it's like pulling tissues from a box so i didn't waste any film unlike the other brand I previously used.

I tried 3 different blotting papers so far, trying to look for something if not organic, at least natural and this one is by far the worst I've tested efficiency-wise. I have very oily skin and it took up to 3 papers to blot my whole face... with a 65 sheets conditioning, no need to say I was out of paper in less than a month! Moreover, the effect didn't even last the whole day; when applied at noon, my face went back to shiny by the evening, sighs. A pure waste of money.

These are my oil blotting papers of choice. They are a green film and not coated with any powder or substance that clings to your face after blotting. I think the tea tree oil claims are just a gimmick and don't actually add any value to the product. Agree with other reviewers, that you do need two to do the job properly. But I find the best thing for blotting oil is a single sheet (i.e 1 ply) of tissue - incredibly cheap as well.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium, Warm Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
The sheets are small and flimsy. 2x3inches. Feels WAXY too. It takes TWO sheets for me to blot my face - sure, I have oily skin but STILL. Plus it wasn't the cheapest item - 35HKD for 65 sheets (more like 33 uses). Definitely not buying. I don't feel the benefits that tea tree oil is supposed to give, not from these sheets. Save yourself the $$

I think this product is kind of a waste of money, when i used them throughout the day when my face was shiny it took of the remainer of the makeup that i had on, so i had to touch up anyway. I defently wouldn't buy these again.

Too expensive for blotting tissue (something you're going to throw away as soon as you're done). The tea tree aspect of the product doesn't really help your skin when you're just dabbing oil off. Not as absorbent as I'd like, and very thin. I do like the smell of tea tree oil, though.

I have had these for a while I forgot about them until I saw this on product review here. What I like about them is on the days I remember to use them I don't feel oily around my nose or chin or along my hair line around my forehead. It has a small tea tree oil smell my husband says he don't like. So that's the reason I put them away and forgot about them. If you don't mind the tea tree smell they are perfect.

the things i really liked about the blotting tissues is that it really helps mattify my face and you can tell it really does absorb the oils because the sheet colour changes. For me i only need one for my whole face and i did notice if i blot it around a big pimple it reduces the size. Things i didn't like would be that it has a herbal smell that some people wouldn't like and the sheets are small in size.
Price in Canada: i got mine on a promotion buy 2 get 1 free which was for $10.00 each and 130 sheets (they package it so it comes in two separate boxes, you can't buy them separate)
Wouldn't recommend this to people with very oily skin because you'll have to use more sheets.

I don't really get the blotting tissues thing. I do have very oily skin, but really, I get the same oil absorbing effect from toilet paper. I bought this product a long time ago but I've only used it a couple of times, I just don't really think it's that fantastic. I can think of better ways to spend nearly $10.

Hmmm. Not a fan of this product. It's suppose to remove shine without removing your makeup. Well it does remove my makeup. After I wiped this over my skin there is makeup in the tissue. After I wiped my face my skin still looks oily so not a good product for it's price.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I am very satisfied with this product. I use it to keep my makeup fresh (in combination with a spritz of Evian right after makeup), it works very well and does not remove my makeup, but some reviewers complain that it does (I do not rub my face with it, I just spot-touch gently). It's true that you need multiple sheets to blot your whole T-zone and cheeks but I like how thin the paper is. Plus I don't like an already oiled-up sheet touching my face, which is prone to breakouts. About the tea tree oil: I add pure tea tree oil to my facial cleanser and use it every day, so I don't know if the oil in these sheets is doing anything extra.
Packaging: It's in a thin travel size box containing 65 sheets.
Price: For $10 for 2 packs, I think it is no more expensive than Clean&Clear or Neutrogena.
