Its no secret that I am an oily girl. I have an oily T Zone that looks like a mirror come lunch time!
I got these little blotting sheets from Proactiv at a Bloggers Lunch I attended back in December. I was so excited to try them as I need all the help I can get when it comes to oil control!
This is what Proactiv have to say about them:
Be your fresh-faced best, anytime. Our compact Oil Blotter Sheets are ready to go with you anywhere. Use as often as you like throughout the day for quick touch-ups at work, school, or on-the-go!
Size: 130 sheets
- Soft, 100% natural fiber paper absorbs excess oil in seconds
- No powdery residue
- No artificial ingredients
Leaves skin feeling fresh and clean
These cost £6.95 and can be bought here.
These blotting sheets are free from any powder or other product. They are quite large which I think is good, they are about twice as big as normal blotting sheet. They are really thin – they remind of me very thin greaseproof paper! I guess that is what they essentially are!
I like that they come in a little carry case and its easy to pull a sheet out. Very handy when you are on the go. I also really like they don’t have any product on them since that is not ideal if you are allergic to talc and other products, or if you are a guy and don’t want to use powdered blotting sheets or other “makeup”.
In terms of performance, these are okay but not fantastic. Despite the large size I actually find I have to use two or three as they are so thin. They do a reasonable job of blotting and I prefer them to the powdered variety, but I think the Kleenex ones I have reviewed here are better than these. The Kleenex ones are made of a different material, almost like a plastic and they are nice and thick meaning they absorb more oil than these.
I really like the fact these are made from natural fibers and don’t contain any powder or product, but I am not in love with them.
I think the Proactiv ones are reasonable value for money and worth a try but you might want to try the Kleenex ones first?!
Have you ever tried the Proactiv sheets? What do you think of them? What is your favourite oil control product? Leave me a comment and let me know!
