Name: Shine Eraser
Size: 50 blotting sheets
From E.L.F.’s website:
These amazing little sheets instantly absorb oil, minimize pores and mattify shiny skin. Woven texture eradicates shine and keeps skin matte for hours. Green Tea Extract helps re-texturize skin, masking facial imperfections. Travel pack fits neatly in your bag or pocket for on-the-go touch-ups.
What I liked:
– absorbs shine well
– easy to carry around
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– doesn’t minimize pores
– more than one sheet is needed for very oily skin
I rarely buy oil blotters. I just don’t like spending a lot of money for them, when a tissue or toilet seat paper works just a well. But E.L.F. Shine Eraser comes in a simple green packaging that contains 50 papers for just €2.03!
These sheets are smaller and thinner than most oil blotters out there, which makes it easy to carry them around. They are powder-free and green in color with some darker flecks. I read reviews where people mentioned these flecks got stuck to their faces, but that has never happened to me.
Although small, these sheets absorb shine well without ruining my makeup. My skin is not super oily, but throughout the day my t-zone get shiny so using only one sheet at a time is enough for me. But if your skin is very oily you’ll probably need to use two or three.
Although the product claims that the Green Tea Extract infused in the sheets helps to re-texturize skin and mask facial imperfections, that is obviously not true. While the sheets do a good job at absorbing oil they don’t re-texturize may skin and don’t make my pores look smaller.
Overall, these oil blotters work well. They absorb shine but don’t ruin your makeup and are inexpensive. However, if your skin is very oily, using more than one sheet at a time is necessary to completely absorb shine and they obviously don’t mask facial imperfections.
