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.

Clean and Clear Absorbing Sheets ($5.49 for 50 sheets) Instantly blot away excess oil and say goodbye to the shine! Oil-Absorbing Sheets soak up excess oil and remove shine from your face, without smudging makeup or leaving behind a residue. Softer than paper, these silky smooth sheets can be used easily around your nose and other areas of your face. Use them anytime, anywhere to remove oil and shine throughout the day. It’s beauty on the go. Oil-Absorbing Sheets are smooth, flexible sheets that change color with use so you can actually see them working. The sheets absorb oil from the skin, effectively reducing shine. They come in a slim, pop-up package for convenient access.
I really like the Clean and Clear Absorbing Sheets. You can always find them in my purse or backpack. I basically always have them with me. The sheets measure to be about 3.25 inches (8.3cm) in length and little over 2 inches (5.31cm) in width. I usually need only 1 sheet. But when my face is really oily, I need 2 sheets. The sheets are thick but not super thick. The sheets are also very soft but strong enough where they don’t rip after soaked with oil. When you use the sheets, it doesn’t smudge or remove your makeup or leave back any unwanted residues. The sheet changes color from dark blue to different levels of transparency depending how much oil is being absorbed. The more oil the sheet absorbs, the more transparent the sheet becomes. I like how strong and sturdy the packaging is. It takes quite a beating in my purse and backpack, but it has yet to fall apart. I also like how the tab slips into the slot. This keeps the flap from opening up and the sheets getting dirty. I do have some complaints. The first is after awhile and a certain amount of uses, the sticky tab loses its stickiness and can no longer grab onto a new sheet. You end up (at least I do) trying to grab a sheet with your fingers. It’s really difficult to separate the sheets with your fingers. Second, sometimes multiple sheets will come out at once, and it’s difficult to shove the extra sheets back into the packaging. You end up wasting 2-3 sheets. The third complaint is the price. Each sheet costs roughly almost 11 cents. To me, that is a bit expensive. Overall, I’ll keep buying them because they work and they are probably the best I’ve ever used.
