It's no secret I'm a sucker for beautiful things, and these Tatcha Japanese Beauty Papers are not only pretty, but incredibly useful too. They're like the blotting papers you've probably used before but a thousand times more thoughtfully made. First, these are all-natural 100% abaca leaf and gold flake and handmade in Japan. Tatcha doesn't test on animals and made these beauty papers biodegradable. And to top it off, they are powder and fragrance-free so there's no worry of irritating your skin.
These are definitely the most elegant way to combat oily skin (and much more effective than repeatedly applying powder and ending up cakey-looking) and have become staple in my handbag or clutch. To use, you simply pat a single leaflet to the face where there is excess oil. They won't disturb your make-up or steal moisture from your skin. And you can use both sides!
They are available here at C.O. Bigelow.
