Hello Kitty Oil Blotting Paper

Hello Kitty Blotting Paper 01

Even normal skin tends to produce excess oil from time to time, depending on the climate, weather or hormonal balance, on areas like the nose, the forehead and the chin. Untreated, this can cause enlarged pores, blackheads and in the worst case acne. Blotting Papers are commonly used beauty tools to absorb excess oil or light sweat from the skin without removing the make-up.

The oil and sweat produced by the skin during a day can darken even expensive foundation. Re-applying powder or foundation can make things worse, because the foundation will be absorbed by the drier areas of the face, but simply sit and mix with the excess oil on the nose or the forehead: not a good look, especially in cities with hot, humid summers. It’s better to use blotting papers to prevent make-up malfunctions like a blotchy, shiny and orange foundation.

The Hello Kitty Blotting Papers(あぶらとり紙)come with a handy little sponge, that attaches to the blotting sheet, guaranteeing an even removal of excess sebum.

Simply press the sponge with the side that has the little white dot in the middle attached to it, to the stack of sheets and lift it up.

The sponge will pick up exactly one sheet and ensure that you can clear up your skin evenly, especially a great feature for those with oily skin! (If you wear make-up don’t forget to lightly dab the area around the eyes. Against common knowledge the skin there produces oil too, and after a few hours make up gathers in the creases and amplify wrinkles in an unflattering way.)
