I was down in the States at Target and came across the Sonia Kashuk Matte Oil Blotting Papers when I was picking up the Sonia Kashuk Eye Makeup Remover. They were $6.99 for 100 sheets, which is a better deal than the Clean & Clear Instant Oil-Absorbing Sheets so I grabbed them. I almost grabbed two packs in case I didn’t make it back down to the states soon because we do not have this brand in Canada. I’m glad I didn’t.
I was at the border waiting in line bored so I decided I’d open the Sonia Kashuk Oil Blotting Papers and try them out. My first impression was wow, what is this? Tissue paper? I could of cut my own tissue paper up and put the sheets into a little pouch. You can actually use tissue paper, it works just as well and is much cheaper. I then started to blot my face, it lifted oil off BUT also lifted my makeup off. I was not impressed at all. The only thing I do like about the Sonia Kashuk Oil Blotting Papers is that the packaging is nice and discreet, and no one can really tell what you are carrying around.
I will not buy these again and I recommend the Clean and Clear Sheets. You can read my review about the Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets here. I guess I will just save the pack and use them for when I have no makeup on, like maybe at the beach.
Below is a picture of after I used one of the Sonia Kashuk Oil Blotting Papers. I did not have makeup on today so you can not see how it takes off the makeup as well as soak up oil.
