Blot Your Shine Away

Sometimes I end up carrying such a small clutch that I can't even fit a powder compact in my evening bag. It is on those occasions that I'm most thankful for blotting papers. These tiny, single-use sheets are great for battling shiny skin; they soak up oil and, in some cases, are even coated with a thin layer of powder that you can use in lieu of a compact. Here are some of my favorite blotting products.

Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens, $10 for 100 sheets, available here. Pressing these finely woven linen leaves to your face lets you fight shine without disturbing your makeup.

Lehcaresor Papier Poudre, $3 for 65 sheets, available here.
These powder-coated British imports were developed in the early 20th century, before powder compacts were commonplace.

One more, so

The Body Shop Brilliance Powder Tissues, $10.50 for 33 tissues, available here.
This version acts as a powder and bronzer in one, giving you a healthy glow on the go.
