Oil absorbing sheets fall within my Top Five Products to Never Leave Home Without! I have extremely oily skin and these are a lifesaver. As other reviewers have commented, I see no difference in quality or effectiveness between the generic vs. the name brand sheets.

TIP: To prevent over-drying your skin or smudging your makeup, don't "wipe" your face with the sheet. Just blot very, very gently on your trouble areas; the goal is to remove excess oil that causes an unflattering shine, while still leaving a little bit of your skin's natural glowing moisture intact. Avoid excessive removal and only use when necessary or else your skin may start over-producing oil.

I have very oily skin and these do a decent job of removing the oil (sometimes I have to use more than 1 sheet though). However, I think the mineral oil in them may contribute to more oil later. I also noticed that my skin looked extra dry after using them... even though I had powder on and the product claims not to disturb makeup. I'm not sure that claim is completely accurate. My mother used them and also said she did not like the way her skin looked afterwards, although the oil was removed. My other complaint is that they bright blue color makes them too indiscreet for quick use in a public place. I will continue looking for a better product.

Many people have commented on the price being cheaper... I would like to point out that many of the others are higher priced BUT offer more sheets (100 instead of the 50 included in this pack).

Comments about Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets, 50 ea:

These are with me at all times! Great for blotting the T-Zone at lunchtime or when you're out at night. They don't disturb the rest of your makeup and help maintain a matte look, and also help keep your skin clear by removing pore-clogging oil. The packaging is nothing special but for the price...eh, it's fine.

    I have this with me everywhere I go. It takes ALL the excess oil off my face and keeps my face shine/greasy free! I love it! I have been using this for 10years! I have tried different brands, still having a pack or 2 of these with me, just in case. What I found out was that the other brands just didn't compare to this. I also had my ex bf use this, he was hooked and still uses it to this day. What else? His guy friends started using these as well! Yup! It really works!

      Works great to remove shine from oily skin without removing make up. Much better than reapplying powder all day. I keep them in my purse at all times. Helps prevent acne breakouts.

              This product is good for the price you are paying for. 50 sheets in a packet, lasts a good amount of time. This blotting sheets takes off oil but usually my husband has to use two, wish it did its job in one sheet. Overal pretty good product, better than the Elf $1 blotting sheets.

                  It does absorb oil but sometimes you may need more than one sheet to get it all. Its great to use before photos or during a long day

                    Comments about Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets, 50 ea:

                    I am one of those Lucky women that has INCREDIBLY oily skin. I don't over-exfoliate, don't use harsh cleansers daily, don't ever forget to moisturize (oil free of course,) don't ever forget sunscreen, and rarely wear makeup. I don't even Own foundation. Even with an all over face primer it won't stay on past 2 or 3 hours. I am always looking for ways to cut the oil. I have used so many brands and types of blotting paper I literally can't remember them all. The Bath and Body are my 2nd favorite, but take more sheets to blot my face clear and I can't seem to find them anymore.

                    The Clean and Clear Are plastic, yes. This is not a bad thing! The paper ones can only absorb so much before they are just moving the oil around. Most blotting papers take 8-10 sheets on my face (yes I am THAT oily) but these only take 2... 3 on a bad day. The mineral oil on the sheet is in such a tiny amount that you have to be sensitive to it in the first place. Second, it's there to act as a facilitating agent for capillary action. This is what pulls the oil off your face and into the blotting sheet. If it wasn't there the sheets wouldn't pull nearly as much oil off your face. If you notice, the sheets are textured and perforated to create more surface area to absorb more oil. These things are marvels of micro- engineering.

                    They fall right in the middle of the price range (not the cheapest and Not the most expensive) and are much more cost effective as they last longer. For those reviewers that say their face is oily in an hour or so… honey, that's because your body is Always producing oil. It never stops. Also, what you eat makes a Huge difference. Eat a couple of slices of pepperoni pizza and tell me your face isn't oily in an hour. Oily skin is a combination of genetics, environment, food, makeup, and habits (touching your face)… roughly in that order.

                    As for those who tout their "green-ness" by saying plastic= bad, and chemicals= bad… most plastics are ENDLESSLY recyclable but paper can only be recycled 3 or 4 times at most before the fiber breaks down beyond use. Also the chemical reviewers are so concerned about is used to control the oil's viscosity (how it flows) and has No known issues with human biology. Yes, I actually looked it up.

                    So in short, yes these sheets are amazing, worth the money, and won't damage your environmentally friendly street cred.
