Renee, I love you but the oily look is exactly what we aren't going for.
Not one to take less than ideal skin conditions lightly, I have discovered an effective little tool to combat midday shine. Say hello to the Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens.
Green Tea Blotting Linens are made especially for touch-ups during those times when you need to rid yourself of excess shine. Designed to be pressed into the skin to soak up excess oils, these linens do so beautifully without disturbing the makeup I made an effort to put on.
The blotting linens feel like thin strips of silken paper, and turn clear in the places where it has absorbed oils. These particular blotting linens boast the added benefit of being infused with antioxidants circa green tea- a natural skin soother and protectant.
A bit gross, but here is one of the towelettes at work. Soaking up some nastiness is all in a days work for these thin linens.
For an oil absorbing punch when you need it most, the Boscia linens are an optimal choice. Snag some for your very own at your local Sephora.
