[Review] Up & Up Oil Blotting Sheets

Alright, here’s a review on the oil blotting sheets I’ve been using lately. I remember years ago using Neutrogena Oil Blotting Sheets (at least I think it was Neutrogena….maybe it was Clean & Clear?) and I loved them. They were blue sheets and I used to rub them (not blot…) ALL OVER my face. Since I was a teenager, my skin was super, super oily! I just liked how it would turn the blue sheet clear…haha. Kept me entertained I guess?

Anyway. I stopped using oil blotting sheets for a while, and when I went back to them, it was after I discovered the ELF brand. I loved that they had cosmetics for cheap, since I was in college and not making much money! I bought many packs of their oil blotting sheets, which only cost $1. These sheets are much thinner and kind of a greenish color. They do remove oil, but I felt like they didn’t remove ALL of the oil, and I had to use multiple sheets…

So instead of buying more of those, a couple of weeks ago I looked for a different brand while in Target. I saw the name brand ones and these Target brand Up & Up ones were right beside them. I don’t remember how much the brand names cost, but these cost $4.77. I’m okay with that price since you get 70 sheets, and the quality is much better than the ELF ones!

So I am very pleased with these. I was pleasantly surprised to see that these sheets are also blue, like the ones I used to use. After trying it out, I can say they perform very much like the name brand ones! They absorb way more oil than the ELF ones. (Sorry for the gross oil in the picture by the way…but I wanted to show you what it looks like after I use one! The bottom picture was after I used it on most of my face…I got even more oil off than that……….I don’t wanna talk about it).

Anyway, I’ll be buying these from now on. They pick up the oil very easily by just blotting them on the skin, they hold much more oil than the ELF ones, and they come in a larger pack. Sure, they cost more, but I think it’s worth it since they are better quality and come in a larger pack. ^_^

How do you like to remove excess oil? Powder? Oil sheets? Something else?
