Palladio Rice Paper Oil-Absorbing Blotting Tissue ($4 for 40 sheets) This very unique, oil-absorbing two-sided, tissue is made with Natural Rice which is much gentler for the skin compares to pulp. With added Rice Powder to eliminate shine and to leave skin feeling and looking smoother. Use to blot off excess oil that causes skin blemishes. The Matte side (without powder) is for blotting to absorb the excess oils and the powdered side is for finishing. Packaged in a pull out tissue component with the convenience of fitting in a purse.
I was pleasantly surprised I ended up really liking the Palladio Rice Paper Oil-Absorbing Blotting Tissue. I usually avoid blotting tissues with powder because (1) the powder never matches my skintone and (2) the powder gets everywhere. I did not run into either of those problems when using the Palladio Rice Paper Oil-Absorbing Blotting Tissue.
The Palladio’s blotting tissue is made of rice paper and is thicker than the blotting tissues I have used. It comes in a variety of shades so you don’t have to worry about the powder not matching your skintone. The paper is 2-sided: one side isn’t powdered and the other side is. You use the non-powered side to blot away the excess oil and the powdered side for finishing. The size of the blotting tissue and the way it is packaged and dispensed reminds me of the Silk Oil Blotting Paper I reviewed a few weeks back. It dispenses like tissue from a tissue box. You just pull on the top sheet and next sheet peeks out ready for use. You don’t have to worry about pulling out too many sheets at once.
I only have one minor complaint and that is the texture of the blotting tissue. It’s not the smoothest or softest blotting tissue I have used. However, it doesn’t bother me very much because it’s not like I am using it to wipe the oil off my face. I’m just blotting. I absolutely think the Palladio Rice Paper Oil-Absorbing Blotting Tissue is worth a try.
