Do you have combination skin? I DO!!!!!!! Ugh – I remember in high school running to the bathroom and grabbing toilet paper so I could pat off my forehead in between periods. Sorry for the visual – but it’s true. I have a very oily t-zone. Then one day – a friend of mine dropped some KNOWLEDGE and changed my world. She whipped out oil absorbing sheets and told me to blot.

I did.

And it worked.

No more hiding in the bathroom stall right before lunch. Holla! As an adult, nothing has changed. I, of course, have a better makeup / skincare routine. But that doesn’t really lessen the amount of oil my body naturally produces. Carry around oil absorbing sheets – like these from CVS – and use them whenever you are looking a little shiny. You don’t have to spend a lot of money for the name brand versions because they all do the same thing. The best part?? They don’t mess up your makeup!!! Yes – you don’t have to worry about ruining your look while blotting because everything stays in place…. except for the oil.

Thank me later. 🙂
