This review will be on yet another product from the Korean brand “Too Cool for School.” It’s the Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Paper.
A set of oil-blotting sheets made with 100 percent mulberry paper.
What it does:
Instantly mattifies and absorbs oil while leaving makeup intact with Too Cool For School’s Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Paper. With its fun, portable carry case, this oil blotting paper is made from natural hanji, a tradional Korean handmade paper that’s sourced from mulberry trees. With just a gentle press, the paper absorbs oil immediately, softening skin and leaving makeup flawless. Inside, the lightweight case includes a handy, reusable puff, a mirror, and replacement adhesive for the puff. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
My Experience with Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Paper:
Packaging: This blotting paper come in a sturdy plastic case with a nice-sized mirror, great for touch ups. The case closes securely with a click and helps keep the blotting paper crease free. I love the concept of a sponge included which has a sticky adhesive to pick up the blotting paper. The sponge is very cushion-y and soft, and with the finger strap, it’s so convenient to blot your skin. Once you are done blotting, you simply peel off the paper, discard and replace the sponge in the case. You will have a fresh paper adhere to it for next use.
I also love the fact that they have included 5 additional strips of adhesive, one behind the other, so if one gets weak or loses its stickiness, you can just peel it to reveal a new sticky strip.
The concept is absolutely genius. I totally foresaw this concept being a hit with the masses and other companies coming off with their own version of this, and sure enough, a few days ago, I saw ELF has released new blotting papers with the exact same packaging.
Texture and Results:
Coming to the performance of these blotting papers – they are 100% mulberry paper. They are very smooth, and not rough; these feel of very high quality. They do an excellent job of blotting away excess oil and shine from my skin without disturbing my makeup.
I do have dry skin, so I do not need to blot too much, but I do have targeted areas on my face, like my chin and under eyes which get shiny and these blotting papers take care of that and I have replaced all my touch up powder in my purse with this product.
Overall, I love this product. I do think the price is good for 50 sheets and the very innovative packaging and usage system get a two thumbs up from me. I highly recommend this product.
