Cosmetics / Makeup Tip: Low cost facial oil blotters
submitted by Denise, Park Ridge, IL USA
Tip description / details:
One day while receiving a perm I noticed that the consistency of the perm end papers closely resembled the face blotting papers I had purchased from Mary Kay. I bought a package of end papers, and as an experiment, started to use them as facial blotters for the "afternoon shine" that I develop on my face. Much to my delight, they worked pretty well. While they did not absorb as much facial oil as the Mary Kay blotters, using several to do the job is still considerably less money than purchasing the Mary Kay (or other manufacturer's) product. I use the jumbo-sized perm end papers sold by Sally Beauty Supply. You can purchase a 10 pack (10,000 papers) for about $12.00.

Results (observed by submitter):
I use the perm end papers to blot excess moisturizer before applying my foundation. This helps to prolong the appearance of excess oil on my face. Then I use the papers to remove excess oil whenever I need to freshen my makeup. It removes surface oil without disturbing the makeup I have applied.
