I bought these because they were on sale for less than the C&C ones that I usually use (and love). The Body Shop ones cost less per sheet, but since I have to use about 4 in contrast to using 1 C&C sheet to soak up the oil, they turned out not to be a bargain after all. They don't disturb my makeup, but they barely soak up any oil; even after using 4, my face still doesn't look as fresh as it does after one Clean and Clear sheet. Plus the salesgirl really tried to pressure me into buying the carrying case, saying that the package would definitely fall apart in my purse without it, which it hasn't.

It seems I'm one of the few people who like this product. One sheet usually works for my t-zone and I have super oily skin. I didn't like the ones with the powders and the plain rice paper ones never seemed to aborb anything. I leave them everywhere- in my bag, at work, in my car. These work for me, but I did receive a free full-sized sample of Shiseido's blotting paper from Sephora, so we'll see which product wins out as favorite.

Not worth the money. I like the fact they contain tea tree oil, and that they are made of paper, but like other reviewers have noted, I have to about 8 sheets to get the same absorbtion as 1 Clean & Clear sheet.

[This review is for the old "formula":] I like the idea of ridding oil from your face without clogging the pores. These blotting sheets are lifesavers sometimes! I haven't tried any other brands though, as we don't have that selection here in Sweden. But I do know that the new TBS blotting sheets without tea tree oil suck, and not in the good way ;) They don't absorb as well as the old ones. I'm going to try the ones from Make Up Store next as I heard they are better.

HOrrible product. Too expensive for what a horrible job it does. I can wipe oil off of my face better with my own hand. I would have to use like 8 of these to FULLY seep up all the shine. I have oil on the t-zone area. Clean and Clear blue blotters are a million times more fab. I just use 1-2, and I am shine-free. I would maybe only recommend these for a person with literally DRYYYY skin, who gets shine VERY infrequently.

I almost choked when I saw the price of these things the other day... $10. I payed less than $2 in Sweden last year! The prices of all the other products are comparable so I don't understand why this would be so much more.
Anyway... it does take 2-3 sheets but I was ok with that because it was dirt cheap. I had a pack in almost every jacket or jeans. But if you're guying it in the US you can get a lot better for the $10.

Much as I love TBS, I can't say the same for this product. The sheets are tiny and I usually need 2-4 sheets to mattify. Give me Clean and Clear blotters anytime - 1 sheet is all it takes!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Doesn't absorb as much as Clean and Clear. I can't tell if there's really any tea tree oil in these. If there is then it doesn't make much of a difference.

i use many packs of it before i change to fancl's...esp after bodyshop increases the price to SG$5...i can get fancl one at a much worthwhile price...

*sigh* I so do love The Body Shop, even though some of their products are real let-downs. This stuff is kinda pricey and I like tea tree oil (I apply the actual tea tree oil with jojoba oil as a carrier -- it's fabulous as an overnight acne treatment) However, I don't really think they should advertise this as a "tea tree oil blotter" since whatever they have in it actually gives my skin a mild allergic reaction. I feel greasIER after using these strips. I'm glad the other reviews concur with me -- after using 4 or 5 sheets of these with NO results, I thought I was some kind of oily freak. I swear, blotting with these sheets has NO effect other than to make me feel like I've put oil on my face (it's that 'tea tree oil'). I have very oily skin but Clean & Clear blue sheets really do the trick. These sheets are a waste of money.

I bought 2 packages of these for $16 recently but they will be going back where they came from soon. They are too small and don't work well removing oil from my face. Clean and Clear or Shiseido is much better.

I got these in a swap. I like how they smell. But they are very small. Too small to do the trick on my greasy big ol' face. That's really my only complaint. By the way, tea tree oil isn't even listed in the ingredients--which goes to show you how much is in there. Probably just a scent of it. That's ok though because I think tea tree oil does not agree with my acne prone skin.
I'll stick with Proactiv blotter sheets (and Japanese clones thereof). But I will use these up, definitely, and if someone offered me some I'd take them. But I would not buy them unless they were VERY cheap.

I bought this to try it, and it does take quite a few sheets for it to absorb the oil and it doesn't do much for shine, I do remember a slight sting when I first used them, I think I'll stick to the Shieshedo ones intead.

These did *not* do it for me. I even bought this cute metal holder for them at TBS so they wouldn't get all bent up!! What a disappointment. They didn't absorb *nearly* enough oil, and I had to use 3-4 at a time to make them work. Would definitely not repurchase.

Wow, I didn't expect to see so many negative reviews. I guess I'm one of the few who actually like these. This is my 3rd repurchase of these blotting papers. Since TBS changed their packaging, it's actually more convenient now (the flap opens up to a tissue in the middle that's ready to be pulled out - think tissue box). These things are a staple for me because I constantly use them up. I mainly use them at night a little while after I had taken a shower, when the oils start to show up again. They do a good job absorbing all that oil. I just wish it came in a bigger size then I'd be much happier.

i got these as an extra so i can't complain about price but these little things are no good.
i use shiseido pureness blotting papers (the best!!) so these are a huge letdown in comparison.
they say that it has tea tree oil to help combat blemishes ..i doubt this will be very effective.
these will be my "around the house" oil blotting papers.

Compared to other oil blotting sheets like Clean & Clear's, these are terrible. I have to use 3-4 sheets at one time... what a waste.. the only good thing about these are that they're more discreet than the Clean & Clear ones (only because these are a light, translucent green and C & Cs are a non see-through blue, unless of course u have super oily skin then it's like they're invisibe)... product is a waste of $.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Most oil blotters out there are about the same, quality wise. This is no different. I do like how they're small though, they're easier to carry around and there's no wastage. However, when it comes down to packaging, this is no where close to the likes of Bloom, Urban Decay, and Anna Sui's oil blotters!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I have really oily skin and these facial blotting tissues can barely do the job. I need about 3-4 pieces each time and even tt can't make my face matt. I don't see any acne controlling properties either. In fact, i find my face getting worse after using this and the tea tree oil.

I thought £3.00 (US equivalent $4.95 - I'm not sure how much they are in US stores) was moderately expensive for 65 sheets. These were quite small sheets, and being made of rice paper made them very susceptable to tearing. I am sure I can do better than this.
