To Blot Or Not To Blot?

For The Body Shop Mineral Powder Blotting Tissues

Blotting tissuesBlotting tissues-2

What it is: Blotting tissues that soak up shine and excess oil while the fine mineral powder leaves a soft matte finish.

Key Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide

How it feels/smells/looks: They do not have a scent to them at all. They are papery sheets with a light dusting of powder.

Why I like it: These worked really well at absorbing oil, but I feel like it made my skin a bit dry. I have to use 2-3 sheets every time. I have bought the blue Clearasil ones before and only had to use 1-2 sheets for my whole face. I feel that Clearasil does a better job, even though it is 2-3 USD more and does not contain powder. I think these blotting tissues are aimed at people who have light oil. I need to pick up a pack, because these are really essential for oily skin girls like myself. I will not be repurchasing these. I like the ones at the drugstore better. What is your favorite brand of blotting tissues? Have you tried these?

With Love,

  1. I’ve never used them. My face was looking oilier earlier this summer, but doesn’t seem to be a huge problem now. I was just going to buy the target brand because they’re cheapest, but I have no recommendations.
