As someone with oily skin, I always make sure to have a pack of oil blotting sheets in my bag in case of emergencies. (Which is sadly all the time!) I think everyone will agree with me when I say that it's also super satisfying to see the opaque sheets turn translucent from all the oil! Kinda kadiri, but let's just admit that we all secretly enjoy it, LOL.
Keep scrolling for the best oil blotting papers that even those with the oiliest skin can appreciate!

Clean & Clear Oil Control Film
The Clean & Clear Oil Control Film is a staple in every college and working girl's kikay kit and is practically a precious commodity. Unlike other oil blotting papers, the material of this is very flexibile and doesn't tear easily, which makes it easy to use. It also won't move your makeup around, and it leaves a powder-like finish on the skin. It's available in two variants: unscented (blue) and scented (pink).

Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Paper
If you have a bit more cash to splurge, Fenty Beauty's version of oil blotting papers are a good option. Honestly, if you're a sucker for cute packaging like I am, the chic pink tube packaging with the cute lil' mirror is a good enough reason to buy it, LOL! As for its oil absorbing properties, it controls oil without dragging your makeup and leaves your face silky smooth.

MUJI Cosmetic Paper
Add this to the list of things you didn't know MUJI carries. (Remember when everyone was LOL-ing about the MUJI tabo? Taking a bath, but make it chic!) If you thought MUJI only sells stationery, think again. They actually have a whole bunch of makeup, skincare and home items. It's made from 100% Japanese washi paper that turns translucent as it absorbs oil, so you can really tell that it's doing its magic! The papers are also dispensed the same way like facial tissues are, wherein a new sheet pops out after you've taken the previous one. Neat!

Oil blotting doesn't have to be expensive, as proven by the Pretty Secret Oil Blotting Paper. One sheet is enough for blotting your entire face, plus the paper isn't flimsy, given its price. It's available in three variants: bamboo charcoal, cool mint, and tea tree.

They are perfect because even though the price is a bit steep, you get your money's worth as you'll only need one sheet per use. It helps in mattifying the skin without moving your makeup.

Gatsby Powdered Oil Clear Paper
This oil blotting paper works pretty much the same as the others, but the thing that sets it apart is that it's powdered, so that it leaes your skin extra matte, and it won't disturb your base. Because of how extra matte it leaves your skin, you'll only need one sheet for the whole day! Tip: Use the lighter side when dabbing it on your face, as this is the side that's "powdered".
