You know that look; when you glance in the mirror mid day and see it: The dreaded shiny t-zone. My first instinct is to aggressively rub my face into a towel and curse my oily skin. However, I resist that urge and go to my second line of defense: oil blotting sheets.
Face Secrets says: Controls and removes excess dirt without disturbing makeup. Helps stop makeup from turning orange. Keeps makeup fresh-looking with a “just applied” look for hours. Prevents build-up caused from using powder to absorb excess oil. 150 sheets/ $2.99 with Sally’s Card. $3.49 without.
There are several oil blotting sheets out on the market, I believe ‘ol Clean and Clear were the first on the market. I found these at Sally Beauty Supply and decided to give them a try. The price tag for the quantity was hard to pass up!
Each sheet measures 2.5in across and 3.5in long. They sheets are very simple to use, press on to any oily area of the face (without rubbing) and remove. Apply a clean area of the sheet to another area of the face.
These are much cheaper than other brands, and just as effective. I believe they are made out of the same thing as disposable toilet seat covers (which also work, if you’ve ever tried it…).
Where: Sally Beauty Supply or here online. Price: $2.99 with Sally’s Card, $3.49 without.
