These blotting papers are SO CUTE! They would be a great addition to any purse or makeup bag. Even your gym bag. The patterns are really cute and the design makes it very obvious which side you should use.¬† I received two patterns to review and they’re identical outside of the pattern, Fun and Flirty (hibiscus) and Diva (animal print). There are a few different designs within¬† each package. Animal print has cheetah and zebra. Each package has four designs of sheets for a total of 48 sheets per package.



The first thing I thought when I received these was, “What do I need blotting papers for?” I don’t have oily skin. But! Right on the package, the girls at Girlfriends give you a zillion ideas: before pictures, after drinking wine so your lips don’t stain, after the gym. I was impressed that they gave me all these reasons to use their product that I wasn’t necessarily thinking of without a little prompting.

I have used these after applying my makeup or after wearing for several hours to “refresh” the look or give it that done look. And let me tell you, even as someone who doesn’t identify with oily skin, these pick up oil! I’m surprised (you can see in img 229) that anything really came off my face but I’m glad these sheets grabbed it all.


Overall, I’m a fan. Cheap sheets. Easy to bring anywhere. Lots of uses.
