If you have combination/oily skin, you probably don’t go anywhere without oil blotting sheets. Instead of adding more powder to control shine and your makeup ending up looking mask-like the more powder you use, oil blotting sheets remove the oil without adding any more product which is best way to do it. Even if you prefer to use powder to touch up throughout the day, it is best to first remove the oil and then powder your face.
I don’t like to spend too much and why should I when there are perfectly effective oil blotting sheets such as e.l.f Essentials Shine Eraser for $1 or the BH Cosmetics Studio PRO Oil Blotting Sheets for $1.95? I was perfectly happy with these two products until I decided to try Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets.
All Hail The Queen!
I was seriously stunned by how much oil the Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets absorbed. These sheets left me completely matte with no oil to be found anywhere. When I say that it left me completely matte, I mean that it left me completely matte!
While there are plenty of oil absorbing sheets that are effective including the e.l.f and BH Cosmetics sheets, this one is the clear winner even when compared to much more expensive oil blotting sheets. And it’s inexpensive too. Sure , it’s not $1 or $1.95 but at $5.99, it is relatively inexpensive. I bought mine at this price from Ulta although you can certainly find them in many other stores. Included in the packet are 50 sheets.
Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets instantly soak up excess oil and remove shine from your face, without smudging makeup or leaving behind powder. Softer than paper, these silky sheets can be used easily around your nose and other areas of your face. Use them anytime, anywhere to remove oil and shine throughout the day.
1. Easy to remove sheets
There is a sticker on the inner cover of the packet which easily sticks to in order to lift out a single sheet once you press it against the sheet as shown below. (The BH Cosmetics Oil Blotting Papers use the same mechanism also).
2. Easy to use
The sheets have more of a plastic texture than paper texture which enables them to easily glide over any part of the skin including every nook and cranny leaving perfectly matte skin in their wake.
3. Makeup will not smudge after using these Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets
4. They are very soft and silky
The sheets are blue but they become completely clear and see through once oil is absorbed into the sheet. You will be left shine free and perfectly matte when you use these oil blotting sheets. The result is quite unlike any other blotting sheets I have ever used.
I typically use the sheets to blot my T-zone but by the end of the day, I blot all over my face especially in the summer.
- If you’re not about the matte life which I sometimes I’m not and you want a more dewy look even when excess oil is removed, these Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets are not it.
- You can only use the oil absorbing sheets once and most times you will need several to cover your entire face.
- The ingredient list does state that these sheets contain mineral oil so if you think that mineral oil is the devil (which I don’t) then these aren’t for you.
I absolutely love the Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets. If you struggle with oily skin, you need these in your life. These are so much better for you as opposed to using oil blotting powder which when you use several times a day will give you nothing but cake face.
The gist of this Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets review is that if you don’t have them, you need to go out and get them! They are a must for anyone with oily/combination skin.
Available at ulta for $5.99 although you can certainly get them at various retailers on and offline.
