Shiny Face No More: The Body Shop Mineral Powder Blotting Tissues

I used to think I had no choice but to carry around my setting powder along with my big fluffy brush in my bag for those quick face touch ups throughout the day. I can gladly say that The Body Shop's Mineral Powder Blotting Tissues have come to the rescue and have made the blotting process so much easier! Not only do they save me on space in my purse, but they are quick and hassle-free.

The blotting papers are slightly coated with powder, which is what makes these particular tissues so special. I have tried blotting papers from other brands that weren't coated, but I always end up going back to these ones. These work wonders to get rid of excess oil on the face. I like using them when I have face makeup that I want to matify (oh, the joys of having combination skin), but they are just as effective on days where I don't have a full face of makeup and just want to remove the shine on my T-zone. A quick face pat down,  and you are done. Now that is a well-invested $5 to keep you looking your best! :)

Have you tried blotting tissues? They are such makeup saviours!


  1. I've never tried any sorts of blotting papers.
    I just never really understood them, but maybe one day I'll try them out. If any, I'll get these for sure :) Sound lovely.

  2. I've been real interested in these blotting sheets once I heard of them a couple weeks ago. Thanks for the review! :)

  3. I've tried blotting tissues but never the body shop ones! They're definitely a saviour xx

  4. Perhaps I need to invest in these beauties to carry in my handbag, thanks.

  6. Blotting tissue is the ultimate beauty lifesaver! I always carry my Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens with me because they work so well, but it takes off a little bit of my makeup with it if I press down too hard so I definitely want to give The Body Shop Mineral Powder Blotting Tissues a try!


  7. I have been wanting to try these for a while now .. glad I came across your review!
