    Inefficient and rough feeling
    • I'm going to start off by saying I love everything I've tried from this website, and it basically has changed my life. When I ordered these, I thought, how different could they be from the drugstore brand I usually use? Apparently ridiculously different. These do not work even close to as well as the others I've used before. They have a much rougher feel on my skin, and it takes me like 5 of these sheets a day to get the same results from ONE sheet of my drugstore brand. Disappointing.

    Standard Papers
    • I've used different kinds of blotting papers and they're all pretty much the same. I keep some in my pocket because my skin is so oily just an hour after washing my face. There's nothing really special about these papers, but nothing terrible either. They work fine but I have to use 3 or 4 on just my nose! But my nose is the problem not the papers. The only improvement that needs to be made is the dispenser where you can't pull just one paper out. I wish it was more like a tissue dispenser/box.

    Other brands are better
    • I tend to use 2-3 sheets to get all the excess oil off my face. Not really satisfied with these sheets. And they're way to thin, so they dont absorb as much oil.

    A good try
    • they're pretty easy to use and i like the fact that you can buy samples. Paula's products are good for people with budgets aka me. But i usually use around 2-3 to get all the oil of my face. Thanks paula

    • Thanks God I didn't 'listen' to the reviews .. I love these oil-blotting papers. They are bigger than the Clean and Clear ones.. Get them and you'll see for yourself. Good price as well.

    Not as Good as Expected
    • I have very oily skin and have been using the Clean & Clear oil wipes for a while now. When I saw these on here, I noticed they were very reasonably priced, so I added a pack of 100 to my order. When I got them I was a little disappointed. I don't think they are very conveniently packaged to just grab one and go, you have to open the package and try to grab just one with your fingers. They're a great size, but I need two or more to blot my face. I honestly like the Clean & Clear ones better.

    good value and quality
    • My four teenagers (boy and girls) and myself use oil absorbing paper often in summer. We all love the size (wish something bigger but this is the biggest in the market) and the effectiveness. Clean and clear is $4 to $6 in my area, this one is $2.95 for same amount. So this is really good value. I always add this to the $50 minimum to get free shipping.

    just OK
    • These blotting papers do work, however, it takes about 10 papers to completely blot the oil off my face. Even though Shisedo papers are expensive, I will stick with them because I can do my whole face with just 1 or 2 papers.

    Better Than Nothing
    • These blotting papers don't absorb any more oil than a sheet of plain toilet paper would. Yes, they are half the price as some other brands, but I find myself using 2-3 sheets every time, so there is no price difference in the end. I don't even have very oily skin. The packaging is mediocre as well. The sheets gets stuck to the adhesive that closes the package all the time, and they are so flimsy that they rip in half every time. I'd rather have these than nothing, but I've had MUCH better luck with the drugstore brands. Customer Care Response: Thank you for your review. Your comments and feedback will certainly be passed along to Paula and her Product Development Manager. Feel free to check out other options at Beautypedia and in the meantime contact customer care to offer you an in house credit for the product which may be used on a future purchase.

    Works Great :)
    • I've never used blotting papers before so I have nothing to compare them to. But I think these work great on blotting my T-zone (especially around my nose). I agree with others about the packaging though...not the best. Overall, I would repurchase.

    Not very good
    • I mean, the blotting papers work. BUT it might take a few sheets for them to work. I have dry skin but I do get oily sometimes. If I have to use 2-3 sheets at a time, I can't imagine how many sheets people with oily skin have to use. The sheets also rip ridiculously easily. That is beyond annoying. I don't want to be blotting my nose and have the sheet rip on me. But it has happened more times than one. It's a good thing these sheets weren't expensive. Customer Care Response: Thank you for the review. We are sorry to hear that this product did not work for you.

    These are perfect
    • I have oily skin and am allergic to almost everything. So these are the perfect blotting papers because they don't have anything but paper. No powder or scent or anything added that can irritate my skin. I keep these on hand at all times!! It does take three or four papers to blot my face in the middle of the day. It leaves me with a clean, smooth feeling. I do not wear any foundation so I cannot speak to how they would affect that.

    Huge usage required for very oily skin
    • This comes along with my CLEAR anti-acne set for free, and I've used 3 packs already. I just use it since I get them for free, but I wouldn't pay for this product on my own. First off, packaging is awkward just like someone reviewed below. I am not fond of this securing strap, and it is hard to pull out desired amount of papers. While these papers might be handy for people with normal to a bit oily skin, it would be a huge waste for people with excessive amount of oil. I'd have to overlap 3-4 papers and use that all at once. And, I'd have to repeat the step maybe 5-6 times to completely remove oil on my face, which results wasting 15-24 papers per use. That's already 1/4 of one pack. If you have super oily skin, you'd be better off using plastic film type of oil blotter from other brand than paper blotter. 1 plastic film can absorb oil much more than paper blotter, which consequently will save your money and time. I will be oil-free using maybe 5 plastic films. Customer Care Response: Thank you for your comments, we will be sure to share your experience with the product to Paula and her Product Development Manager and suggest trying the Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish which helps to absorb excess shine and oil for a few hours during the day and would be re-applied as needed. Please contact customer care with any questions.

    • So these papers seemed to blot ok, but they were on the small side and when I applied them to my nose it blotted the oil a little, but took my makeup with it! I was quite disappointed.

    terrible
    • Let me preface this by saying I love Paula's products, especially the BHA. It's been a great product for my acne-prone oily skin. So I was very surprised and disappointed that these blotting papers were so terrible! They're too thin and not effective unless you use 3 or 4 at a time. I have oily skin and these papers are definitely not sufficient for my needs. For the price, I would much rather use Clean and Clear films. Heck, even the good ole toilet liner standbys would be better oil absorbers than this product. I'll be sticking to my tried and true Paula's Choice products. Customer Care Response: Thank you for your comments. We will be sure to share your experience with the product to Paula and her Product Development Manager.

    great value
    • agree with the reviewer who said it's hard to differentiate blotting papers. i go by absorbency , price, and count. you get twice as many PC papers as other brands...and they are super absorbent. i really like these. will repurchase.

    Average blotting papers
    • These blotting papers remind me of the ones by Boscia in terms of texture and size, though these sheets are thinner. They are okay for absorbing oil, but I much prefer the Sephora brand papers recommended on Beautypedia, even though they are pricier. One sheet of the Sephora brand absorbs as much oil as 2 of these sheets. I will not be repurchasing.

    They're good
    • I ordered the refill pack three times and I like using them a couple of times a day to keep my make up intact. I wouldn't order the harder plastic case because I used to have one and it would always get dirty. These sheets are super thin , so it would cost money and effort to develop an easy to dispense case. No thanks. I dont want to pay extra for paper sheets, I have thumbs. These are just great if your expectations are realistic.

    Oil Blotters
    • I ordered the oil blotter sheets last summer but when my order came I didn't see them in the box and threw the empty box away. I fianlly re-ordered them and got them today. I discovered they are in a flimsy, clear plastic thing. I was under the impression they came in a hard case or at least something to pull them out easier.... why else would you want refills? I love the size of the sheets but not the plastic wrap they are in. It's time consuming to get just one sheet out. Customer Care Response: We will pass along your feedback and comments to Paula.

    Rip off? Not so!
    • I used a friend's and they are large! Not only that, but they are cheaper than my Clean and Clear ones that are more money for only 50 sheets that aren't as big (if I re-call: I don't actually own this product). I wouldn't make an order specifically for these since I use blotting sheets so seldom, but to bring my order up to free shipping, a re-fill or new package of these is a great addition to my order. :) Besides, if I am going to use blotting sheets, why not use the best, and at the best price?

    good product, confusing price scheme
    • I liked these blotting papers better than others I've tried because the size of the sheets is larger than average, which I think makes them more convenient. However, I came back to buy a refill, only to realize that it costs more to buy 100 refill sheets than to buy a new package of 100 sheets with case included! This pricing scheme encourages waste, I will no longer be buying these.

    Works as expected
    • As another reviewer has mentioned, the papers themselves are nothing special. Of course, when ordering this product I was completely expecting that. However, the reason I only gave this 3 stars is because I was disappointed by the packaging. I heard it came in a plastic case and I was basically expecting a nicer hard plastic case that I could slide the papers in and out of easily. However, this soft--sticky plastic case is annoying because the smaller packets inside always stick a bit which makes it occasionally difficult to remove.

    No better than the average product...
    • No better than your average oil-blotting sheets that you can get at the drug store for almost the same price. There's nothing exactly that sets this product apart from all the others on the market. I love Paula, but I was hoping something an oil-absorbing blotting sheet that would last longer on eliminating oiliness and shine.Customer Care: Please call our Customer Service for assistance with finding a product that will work for you.

What makes this product unique?
These handy and discrete Oil Blotting Papers instantly absorb excess surface oil and leave your skin smooth and matte. These tissue-thin papers will not disturb your makeup nor will they add any powder to the skin.

Product Dimensions: 3.26 x 2.16 in

Who is this product for?
The Oil Blotting Papers are ideal for normal to oily/combination skin.

DIRECTIONS: Simply press the Oil Blotting Papers against shiny areas and the oil is immediately absorbed! Discard used papers.

Tip: For very oily skin, it helps to apply a light dusting of powder after using the papers.

Do the Oil-Blotting Papers contain powder?

No. Paula isn't a fan of oil-blotting papers that are laced with powder. They tend to leave an uneven finish and require more work for smooth, matte results. Paula recommends using our Oil-Blotting Papers to remove excess oil and perspiration, then brush on a light layer of powder to finish.
