The best oil blotters ever! I give my papers extra cushion by using a thick powder puff under to really make the paper suck up extra oil. Also, I rip the paper at the crease and they last twice as long.

LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOVE this product!!! Very cheap yet very effective! I now have less to carry in my purse :) because now I can do without a powder brush and powder to deal with my mid-day T-zone shine at work. I now only have to use loose powder in the morning to set my foundation.
This product does a great job in mopping up my shine and mattifying my face. I discovered this blotting paper when my local Sally's had a buy-2-get-1 free deal. I got it in transluscent. The powder doesn't give me "cake face". I think that to avoid cake face, you need to make sure to use the blotting side first to mop up any shine. Then you can use the powdered side to mattify. You don't want to just press the powdered side directly onto your oil slick: BLOT FIRST using the unpowdered side.
I'm picking up more of these so I can have one package at the office and one in every purse! For under $5 a pack (40 tissues), it is definitely worth a try.

I LOVE THESE. They not only have a blotting side, but also a mattifying powder side that doesn't break me out :) Unfortunately, I don't really like the packaging because it tends to get smashed in my bag and powder gets everywhere. Other than that I'm fine!

The packaging is good, but the powder (I had translucent) gave me cake face. I returned this to the store.

I really wanted to like these little blotting papers but when I pressed them to my face the powder flaked off everywhere. The packaging is perfect. You pull one sheet out and another pops up. The price is right too. I bought mine at Ulta for about $3. Sadly I returned them.

I keep these in my purse at all times. They're cheap. The packaging is cute. They're thicker than most blotting papers. And they work. What more could you ask for? I recommend getting the translucent ones because they don' t deposit any color. That way you can touch up as often as you need to without worrying about looking too powdery.

At first I thought I was going to love these because they are a lot thicker than your average flimsy rice papers. But then I realized that the powder comes off as orange when my skin is really oily. Also the powder flakes off everywhere and makes a mess. I got the "natural" powder color but maybe the translucent is different. I would even be willing to try these out again with translucent powder just because they are cheaper than Clean & Clear (I go through over 1 pack a month) and the rice paper seems to hold up well. I'm just not a fan of the powder part. I would say the paper itself is comparable to the Starbucks napkins (but more convenient and sanitary).
Giving this 3 stars because I would give them another chance in translucent.

This has got to be the best blotting tissue around! And I have tried a lot of them! I was at Sally's and they had them at the checkout area. They were on sale for $2.99 from $3.99. You really need to try, especially if you are oily. I don't know for how long at that price, so I plan on going back tomorrow to purchase a dozen more! They do have around 4 shades, but I just got the translucent and it works out perfect.

I don't like them at all. They're just so powdery and don't really absorb the oil on my face. I would recommend the Clean & Clear ones. I like the way they work much more.

I refuse to leave the house without taking these with me.
I can't recommend them enough to ladies who have oily skin, or whose jobs require them to work up a sweat. I'm a bartender and my job usually has me running all over the place so these are my lifesaver (facesaver?) by the time 7 P.M. rolls around.
I love the fact that they have powder on them! I own the ones with the translucent powder. They get rid of that icky oil shine and help to replace any powder that might have slid off or been rubbed off. If you don't want the powder, you have the option of blotting with the side that has none. Simple versatility at its best.
Best touch up item ever!

I got these B1G1...I can't remember if the second was free or 50% off. They're the bee's knees! I LOVE them for taking off the oil from my face after a few hours of being at work. Because believe me, I look like I dipped my face in a fat fryer. Gross.
I am taking off one lippie because of the packaging. It won't always stay closed and sometimes gets powder in my purse. Not a BIG deal, but kind of annoying.

These are awesome...should have tried them sooner...a must for oily skin and my makeup doesn't look cakey towards the end of the day with these.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
best blotting papers ever! keep my skin nice and matte, gives me a very clean feeling after using. Only takes 1 sheet to clear my extremely oily skin. The powder does flake off, but is easy to wipe off clothes if there is fallout

I swear, I have a pack in every bag! I can't go anywhere without these! I buy the ones in natural & they're BOMB!! I love how you can chose to use the side with powder or without, I prefer the powered side. I usually buy them from ulta when they got their deals going on. Gotta love bargains.

These are my favorite blotting sheets ever. They're average priced, around $3-4 and I normally find them at Sally Beauty Supply or Ulta. My skin gets oily a couple hours into the day, and just one sheet of Palladio's rice blotting paper soaks up all the oil on my face. I've tried other brands, and I always have to use at least 2 sheets! The rice powder does tend to get a bit messy, but I always just tap it off as soon as I pull it out of the cardboard packaging.

This product is definitely the best out there. My forehead gets crisco greasy and my nose isn't far behind. The skin care system I'm using now has done a lot to balance my skin and get rid of the breakouts but genetically I am just oily. These oil blotting papers are a must. I've found that these are the only ones that a) don't make the oil worse an hour later and b) don't contain mineral oil and breaks me out. My skin likes the rice powder. For reference I have used clean & clear, bosica, and victoria's secret in the past. I get the palladio papers in translucent since I have dark skin.

I like this blotting paper but Iīm sure itīs not the best out there. Pros: Itīs dirt cheap, the package is cute (at least I like it), it is a double pack (paper + powder) and it absorbs the oil efficiently. Cons: the rice powder makes a mess when you take the paper out, and it gets in your clothes and everywhere, the powder is not easy to blend, the shades are limited (translucent or beige) and rice powder clogs pores if you use them long term. I think that if you really donīt need the powder you can avoid the mess and buy a normal blotting paper (the ones from Sephora are nice).

These are the best oil blotting sheets I have used! I love that they put a very small amount of powder on your face, which I have not found in any other oil blotting sheets. Just enough powder so that you will be extraordinarily matte but not look overly made up. I would have given these a 5 for sure if it weren't for the fact that sometimes tiny bits will come off the crease of the sheet and be visible on the skin unless you use a tissue of something to remove it.

Of all the blotting papers I've tried (Paula's Choice, Clean and Clear, Sephora Brand), Palladio is my favorite. I need to blot and powder my oily t-zone and Palladio does both jobs with one product.
I like the size and weight of these blot papers. Where other blot papers are tissue-paper thin and require 4-5 sheets to get the job done, Palladio blotting papers have some heft to them and absorb well. One to two sheets will do my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin.
I also prefer the packaging to other brands. The cardboard box is discrete, easy to carry and dispenses one sheet at a time.
As other reviewers have noted, the powder does flake off a bit onto clothing. (I use translucent.) I find this is minimal and brushes away easily without leaving powder marks -- even on black.
For my time and money, I'll stick with Palladio Blotting Powders. These work well and for the price, I can afford to keep them everywhere: work, home, and car!

I LOVE these. I am very fair and I use the translucent. The packaging is great, each paper pulls out the next for easy use. I like the size of them, I think it's perfect for a whole face. I only use them once a day at lunchtime, and they keep my face un-shiny for the rest of the workday, and my skin is somewhat oily. I use the non-powder side first to blot, then go over my face with the powder side. The powder is genius! Works great. My only con is that some of the powder will flake off and get on your clothes, but it's a tiny amount and easily brushed off. Highly recommend and would buy again and again!
