Review: Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets

One of the many must-have beauty product to take on the go is oil-absorbing sheets.  Throughout the day, whether you're wearing makeup or not, your pores begin to clog because of debris and human natural oil in the T-zone area and maybe below the cheekbones.  There are ways to matify your skin, like using compact pressed powder, but I prefer to matify the skin with oil-absorbing sheets.  They are readily available in drugstores but in Canada, they are quite pricey.

I suggest looking on eBay first.  I have seen some Japanese brand oil-absorbing sheets but I haven't tried them.

Application:  Lightly rub or pat the oil-absorbing sheet in the T-zone area and under the cheekbones.

Packaging:  Comes with a total of 50 sheets.  Convenient packaging where a piece of double-sized tape will adhere to the top sheet once it's closed, in preparation for your next use.  Once you open the packaging to grab the next sheet, it'll be readil and easily accessible.  Basically, each time you close and open the packaging, it takes out one sheet. 

What it claims: "CLEAN and 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."

Thoughts / Results:
I find myself going back to these oil-absorbing sheets every time I deviate away from them.  They immediately absorb and removes the oil on my face, thus achieves matifying results.  The packaging claims it doesn't smudge makeup, which I think it holds true.  However, during the removal of face oil, it does slightly remove a bit of foundation, meaning I have seen a bit of my foundation on the blue sheet.  You can tell the oil-absorbing sheets are working when the blue sheet turns transparent, acting like an indicator. 

Cost: $2.50 CAD @Lisa's Cosmetics Warehouse sale (MSRP $6.99 CAD)
