I always carry blotting sheets and powder with me wherever I go to avoid blinding people with my face oil.
I used to use powder to blot but it would always look cake-y afterwards; the powder and my oil would mix and it would make a weird paste almost – as you would imagine; it looked very unflattering.
I found these blotting sheets on eBay for only a few bucks and so I thought I would try them out. I’m pretty certain these blotting sheets are not authentic because I can’t seem to find them on the Shiseido website but they work so well that I already ordered another 3. Shiseido has two types of blotting sheets and neither come in this baby pink holder – click here to view them. This one that I purchased (link below) comes with 120 sheets and each sheet absorbs quite a lot of oil. I blot about 3-4 times a day. I blot quite frequently so that my oil doesn’t separate or move my makeup around which it tends to do on and around my nose. After I blot I can follow up with powder and it doesn’t get cake-y or look like paste.
I definitely recommend these sheets – they are about $4 CAD and they do their job!
