Since I have used many oil absorbing tissue brands, I was curious to see how Blum Naturals competes with the rest. Blum Naturals Oil Absorbing Facial Tissues are all natural and contain no powder. The tissues come in a small package, which makes it convenient to place in your make up bag. The package comes with 50 oil-absorbing sheets, which should last you more than a month.
Basically you blot your t-zone with the facial tissues when your face is oily. You can use as many sheets as you need front and back until the tissues have absorbed the excess oil. Ideally one should do the trick.
Some oil absorbing tissues use powder to help seal your existing make-up, but powder can also make your skin look blotchy, depending on your skin color. Therefore, Blum Naturals facial tissues offer a nice alternative to the powdered tissues.
Although the Blum tissues absorbed most of oil on my skin, on occasion I used more than one tissue to absorb all of the oil. Sometimes weather conditions can cause your skin to produce more oil, so you must occasionally prepare yourself to use more than one tissue.
I enjoyed using Blum Naturals Oil Absorbing Tissues and I also believe the price is worth the purchase. I especially like the powder-less tissues because they are great for sensitive skin and they will not cause blemishes.
If you have oily skin, then I definitely recommend trying this product. Although it is not superior to every comparable product, it is better than most and it stands out because it is natural.
