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:

    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.

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

        I have oily skin. These blue sheets literally pull the oil off your face and the oil is absorbed onto the sheet. You simply press the sheet against your forehead, nose, chin, cheek and like magic, the oils and shine are gone. I have used powder but all that does it apply powder on top of the oil on your skin. The blue sheets remove the oil. One sheet is usually enough provided you reposition unused parts of the sheet over and over on your face. Sometimes I'll need 2. It doesn't remove the makeup, just the oil. awesome! Don't buy the rice paper or tissue paper blotting sheets - they do not work. These sheets are not paper, they're almost like a smooth and thin balloon material but not rubbery or sticky. I know that doesn't sound good, but it works. Also, there is no residue on your face. Ther is no irritation. The sheets are not makeup or powder or gel or crime being applied to your face. The sheet is lifting off the oils from your face.

                  Best sheets out there for battling oiling skin during the day. The Clean and Clear brand suprised me with this product! Neutrogena has a very similar style of these sheets but I do believe that this brand still absorbes oil better and still leaves your foundation flawless. Perfect little weapon to have in your purse!

                      I've tried other more expensive brands, and keep coming back to this one, as it absrobs oil the best while not disturbing makeup. I order 3 packets at a time, as I keep one in my bathroom, one in my purse, and one in my desk at work. I don't leave home without it.

                          Even though I'm older, I still have oily skin, especially on my forehead and my nose. Before I found these oil absorbing pads, I was constantly feeling I needed to put powder on those spots, to hide the shine. These pads instantly blot up the excess oil, leaving my skin with a great matte finish--no more shiny nose or forehead!

                          I've also used the Japanese blotting papers, but they have a white powder on them, which always looked a little "off" on my skin. These pads leave no residue--just soak up the unwanted oil, and that's it. Thanks, Johnson and Johnson!
