There are a myriad of things that make some people’s faces greasy or sweaty-looking: humid weather, a good workout, or commitment.
But sometimes an oily T-Zone is just due to the nature of your skin type.
For me, in the morning, my face is usually pretty matte, but then as the day goes on, it gets progressively oilier.
These elf Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets are convenient to carry in your purse in case you need to get rid of a bit of mid-day oilies.

elf Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets Review
These thin sheets remove excess oil when you dab it on your face, and it doesn’t disturb your makeup or add any powder on top (that can give a caked-on appearance).
Since it doesn’t add anything to your face and just removes oil, these are perfect for men to use as well. 🙂
My favourite blotting sheets are still the Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets, which have paper that’s silky and that feels more durable and luxurious than these ones by elf.
The paper comes in a cardboard dispenser, which has a little tab to open and close the front cover. This little dispenser is fairly small, so it’s just the right size to pop into your purse.
The actual blotting paper is speckled like a robin’s egg. I thought it was going to be rough, but the paper is smooth and very much like thin wax paper. But, unlike the Clean & Clear sheets, these are crinkly.
When talking about elf Cosmetics products, you always have to mention the price because it’s dirt cheap.
While the competitor’s ring in at around $4 CAD or so, the elf Cosmetics Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets are just $1 USD. That’s a big price difference considering that you get the same number of sheets.
If you don’t mind that the paper feels like wax paper, these elf Cosmetics Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets may be your top choice.
elf Cosmetics is a brand that doesn’t test on animals.
Extra Tip for Combating Oiliness
Previously, I reviewed the elf Cosmetics Studio High Definition Powder. Check that out because if you use it, you won’t need to reach for blotting sheets nearly as often!
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
Overall, I liked the elf Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets because they do their job and they do it for a bargain price. But they don’t have the luxurious feeling like the Clean & Clear ones do. (That may not matter to you, though…)
Which brand for oil-blotting sheets do you use? Do you have any tips on how to combat mid-day oilies?
