Blotting sheets was something I had never thought of buying until Summer when I was out and realised my makeup had started to slide off my face due to the sunshine. I know I really can’t complain about the sunshine because of it’s rare appearance throughout the year, but after winning these in a giveaway I knew it was time to try them. I’d not really heard too much about them either, all I knew that they helped your makeup stay intact through sweat and heat etc.
These “Shine Absorbing” sheets were made by Kleenex, and I really think they are amazing. They have been my saviour through the warmer months, and have been close by at all times. They soak up the excess oil from your skin, i.e. sweat and loose bits of makeup. These particular sheets are powder free which I liked, as they didn’t leave any loose white bits of powder on your face. As you can see in the bottom photo (after using the shine absorbing sheet), the excess oil has been soaked up onto the sheet. To use them, you just gently blot your face with them and you will see the sheet turning darker with the more oil that is soaked up. They are so easy to use and also literally take seconds to soak up, leaving you shine free. I have started to use a sheet or two every time I apply my makeup, you’ll be surprised how much comes out even when you don’t think you look shiny!
This is a definite re-purchase for me, as they have become a staple in my makeup routine. I love that they are so simple and easy to use and also that they are so compact and can fit in your bag/purse wherever you go. You get 50 in the box and cost £2.99. I definitely recommend picking up a few packets so that you have them close by at all times!
