Skin Type: Combination
Today, I will be reviewing Forever 21 Refreshing Blotting Papers. This is the first time I am trying oil blotting sheets. To know more about this product and how it fared for me, keep on reading.
149 INR for 50 sheets.
A set of 50 refreshing oil blotting sheets.
My Experience with Forever 21 Refreshing Blotting Paper:
These oil blotting sheets come in a pretty, thin, baby blue cardboard case. The front has cute sea creatures on the front. It also has a tab on the front with a slit for closing it down. It has a compact rectangular packaging. The back of the packaging has all details such as product description and price. At a time, a single sheet can be drawn from the case. The packaging is quite sturdy and is appropriate for traveling. It is not very easy to pull out a single sheet in the beginning; it takes some time to get used to learning.
The oil blotting sheets are almost opaque and are quite thin. They have the same colour as the cardboard case. They are not fragile, but do crinkle while removing from the case. These are also quite shiny to touch.
Even though these have been described as “refreshing” oil blotting sheets, there is nothing refreshing as such except for the blue colour. These are ordinary sheets. I picked these up because I do not like carrying handkerchiefs because using them more than once is unhygienic. Moreover, I do not like re applying compact or loose powder on my face as it may trap the dirt accumulated on my face. Hence, I prefer to carry these in my bag.
Coming to the application of these oil blotting sheets, I use them whenever my face feels oily, especially on my T zone. These are quite handy on the go as one can take out a single sheet, use it, and throw it. Even though these are blotting sheets, I sometimes feel that mere blotting is not enough for removing the excess oil on my face. I prefer to swipe these across my face in order to get rid of the oiliness. However, I do like the packaging. These oil blotting sheets can control the oil on the face for at most two hours. This purchase for me was satisfactory, but I am on the lookout for better oil blotting sheets.
Pros of Forever 21 Refreshing Blotting Paper:
- Compact packaging.
- Since these are single use, they are much more hygienic than handkerchiefs.
Cons of Forever 21 Refreshing Blotting Paper:
- Not very effective in oil control.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Forever 21 Refreshing Blotting Paper?
I wish that more brands came out with effective oil blotting sheets. I would not recommend these to people with oily skin. These might work for normal to combination skin. If you do not like using a compact or oil controlling powder on your face, this might come in handy, depending on your skin type.
