Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror after a tired day at work and noticed how oily your face has become? You could actually grease a pan with the oil right? Well that is where Blotting paper comes in. Yes, yes it is the same paper you used while your fountain pen leaked at school. It used to absorb all the ink from your shirt, books and fingers. It is also called bibulous paper and is made of superclean cotton that is highly absorbent thus enabling it to absorb an excess of liquid substances such as ink or oil.
Today, blotting paper is a trendy and necessary beauty tool commonly used to absorb excess oil from the skin.
- Price – $3.5 (it was so cheap that i got 5 of them to gift to a few of my friends)
- Quantity – 50 sheets
I purchased NYX blotting papers during a cherry culture sale and I have been using them since. Delhi has an extreme climate. Hot means hot and cold means cold. So during summer no matter what I try, I always end up with an oily T zone.
Matte, Fresh Face, Green Tea and Tea Tree are the four varieties of blotting paper made by NYX. A pack has 50 sheets. Each one is no thicker than a debit card. It is made from pure pulpe paper and feels something like parchment paper. The outer cover which is the packing is black in colour and hassel free. It is easy to carry around in your handbag.
About Nyx Matte Blotting paper:
Fight shine with our new types of Blotting Paper- Tea Tree, Green Tea, Fresh Face and Matte! Each pack of NYX’s Blotting Paper comes with sheets of 100% pure pulp paper to absorb excess oils and keeps you shine free!
Now after trying these sheets in Delhi’s heat I have come to the conclusion that this product is very average. The paper which has the consistency of a tissue paper doesn’t really absorb as much oil as it should. It is not what I expected and it goes beyond my expectation in make up removal. I have to be careful as it abosorbs the makeup worn too…Althought it claims to give you a matte effect it has to be used 2 to 3 times by dabbing it all over the face GENTLY to get rid of oil effectively.
Well, it is by no means an exeptional product and doesn’t support it’s claim to fame. come to think about it for that price it’s not bad also. I guess it will have to do until I find something better.
What I like about NYX Matte Blotting Paper:
- Availiable online and at NYX counters in India
- Travel friendly
- Nice packaging
What I don’t like about NYX Matte Blotting Paper:
- Doesn’t live up to its claim 100 % !
- Takes off make up along with the oil!
- Not so widely availiable
