Birchbox Breakdown

If there's one thing we've learned from midday mirror check-ups, it's that oily skin can appear when you least expect it. And although the age-old trick of using tissue paper to blot our faces is acceptable in desperate situations, we’ve been searching for a classier quick fix. Thanks to Shiseido's Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers, we can say farewell to T-zone terror and hello to shine-free sophistication.

How to Use

Take a single sheet and gently press it against the shiny areas of your skin, focusing on your nose, chin, and forehead, otherwise known as the T-zone. Leave the blotting paper on your skin until the paper turns transparent (this should only take a few seconds) to ensure that all oil has been thoroughly absorbed. Repeat until you're matte-tastic.
