Review: Kleenex Facial Oil Blotter

I have been in a relationship with this particular fella since roughly half a decade ago. Quite a while, eh? And can you imagine I have not mentioned the poor thing even a single time on this cyber-lot I own? What kind of a best friend does that, right?

So to redeem myself from this unforgivable negligence, here's a very brief review on Kleenex Facial Oil Blotter.

My skin type is extremely OILY. There are days I'd like to believe that I have at least a COMBINATION skin type, but no, that would mean fooling myself as grease comes out not only on my T-zone but even on my cheeks, cheekbones, chin, and that area where mustache is supposed to grow.

As an oily skinned woman, an oil blot has become a staple in my make-up grooming kit (I don't wear/bring make-up everyday so I don't have a make-up kit) along with eyebrow pencil and a lip balm. I have tried a lot of different brands from the past and I can vouch for the effectiveness of this particular brand. I decided to stick to it for the following reasons:

1. It has this really awesome almost velvet-ish lining on the other side that prevents the oil from reaching your finger when the film can no longer handle all the grease (what I experienced with other brands yuch!)
2. It comes in a really cute girly package. I don't particularly love purple but this presentation falls under my type 
3. It's very absorbent; as in I don't have to rub it hard on the face just to remove all the oil (*cough* cleanandclear *cough*
4. It can handle my amount of oiliness (which is mad extreme, have I mentioned already?) OK I'll be straight here. With brands like Clean & Clear and Gatsby, one sheet is not enough. Same with other brands (i.e. Glamworks) that I usually find in Watson's and other drugstores, of which I have to utilize around three sheets to fully give my face a fresh matte look.

This pack of 50 sheets has a regular price of 105Php. Being that I use around 3 sheets a day, a pack lasts for almost 3 weeks. Not bad!

So ladies who have problematic skin like me and have not seen this yet, where have you been?! give this one a try. It's available in most department stores and drug stores near your place (at least in Metro Manila).
