Before I get in with the review, I would like to mention that these infamous sheets are blinking hard to find. They were in Asda, went down to 20p, then disappeared. They were in Tesco, went down to 72p, disappeared and then came back at a whopping £2.99. No, I will not pay that. They were even in Boots and Superdrug, but disappeared. Kleenex, your magic acts are not funny. You left me panicked that I would never find my beloved blotting sheets again - mean.
Therefore, I literally smiled gormlessly at my iPad when an iMessage from Lauren came through, saying her mum had found them in Home Bargains for around 29p, and was kind enough to get me a pack. I kid you not, I got a further 10 packets today. Sad? Me? No...
Now, I've given you the back story, I better make this review good haha!
In each pack there is 50 sheets, which last me around a month, perhaps a little longer. The packet is very slim, so it's easy to fit in my pocket at school to avoid shine throughout the day. They are dispensed through a sticky patch, which adheres to the sheet and pulls it out from the packet as you open it. Hard to explain, but very efficient. Unlike other blotting sheets, these ones don't have any powder on them. They just absorb the oil, which you can see below. It's quite disgusting but fascinating at the same time...
The darker areas/dots on the sheet are the oil. This was a blot from my nose, a few times. The most interesting part is looking at what's on the sheet... it's quite horrible but a good way to amaze your friends I've found! They leave your skin feeling normal again - minus the oil. Another great thing is that they do not alter or smudge makeup underneath them.
Obviously, I'm a girl, but there's no reason why a boy couldn't use these either. Sometimes I want to give some to people on the street and say 'BLOT! You'll be amazed!'
