These $10 Blotting Sheets Are the Only Ones That Help My Oily Skin Without Ruining My Makeup
Since my teenage years, I've always had oily skin, and combating it has been difficult. I've probably spent an entire decade perfecting my skincare routine to help keep hormonal acne down, and one key product that always saves me (especially during Summer): oil blotting sheets. No matter how much I try to avoid products that make me greasy, I still am. It's gotten a lot better over the years thanks to the right products, but by 12 p.m. on a hot day, my makeup definitely needs a touch-up. I first discovered blotting sheets in high school and while they took away the slick surface on top of my skin, they also stripped my makeup off. Eventually, I discovered the right product.
The lightweight texture allows them to remove excess oil on top of the skin without ruining my foundation.
I was standing in the checkout line at a department store, where they have what seems like a million little cute products you don't need. Among the assortment, I discovered these Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens ($10) and gave them a try. That was over five years ago and to this day, I don't go anywhere without a pack in my bag.
The green tea sheets are the only ones I can find that don't remove my makeup. They're made from a finely woven linen created from the Abaca tree plant. The lightweight texture allows them to remove excess oil on top of the skin without ruining my foundation. The sheets also come in a charcoal and bamboo choice, but I like the green tea option most.
