The weather is causing havoc with my skin at the moment and I’ve found I’ve been getting a lot more oil on my nose and chin area than usual. To help combat this I have invested in some shine control paper from Superdrug.
The blotting paper comes in a little booklet containing 65 sheets and each page is covered in a light powder so not only are these papers oil absorbed but your skin also given a light dusting of translucent powder to help keep oil under control for longer.
To use these paper you simply tear a sheet out from the book (hopefully neater than what I did above oopsi) and gently pat it onto your problem areas. You will be able to easily see where the oil has been absorbed.
These shine control papers are really great at removing excess oil and leaving a matte finish on my skin but I do find I have to use them several times a day if the oil is particularly bad so isn’t going to give you a long lasting fix but it will control the oil for a little while. They are also very small and slim so are easy to pop in your hand bag and use on the go which is brilliant.
Originally I thought these blotting papers were pretty pricey as they are £2.50 but they work really well, are a great size so you can discreetly keep them in your handbag and as they also contain the powder element too they are offering you more than simply oil absorption.
This product is currently on offer at Superdrug (two for £3.50) so if you’re interested in giving them a try, grab yourself a bargain!
