NYX Blemish control and Tea Tree Blotting Paper




Hello everyone! How is your weekend so far? I hope you're enjoying it!
Today I wanted to share with you one habit I've come to acquire with time and it is blotting paper. I've only used NYX regular blotting paper until now, and can't compare with other brands paper, so I would love to hear your comments on this. I think it was last year (correct me if I'm wrong) that NYX launched special treatment blotting paper, and I'm glad I finally decided to pick up these two.

I have a combination skin, and lately also prone to acne. This is unbareble sometimes, because as a teenager I never had one blemish and my girl friends went like "oh, why is it your skin as baby skin!!". Well, that isn't the case any more.

NYX Tea Tree blotting paper

NYX Blemish control blotting paper

These are two different kinds of blotting paper: NYX Tea Tree blotting paper and NYX Blemish control blotting paper. I have found the tea tree blotting paper much better than the regular one because I actually get the sensation of "clean skin" whenever I start feeling my T-zone of the face oily and I'm wearing makeup. While the blemish control paper is meant to blot when you have breakouts and wearing foundation, for instance. Please, notice that these do not replace necessary treatment for acne prone skin. But surely help better than regular paper.
Do you use blotting paper regularly? Which is your favourite blotting paper? Have you tried these yet?
Love,
Nati

  1. Hi Nati!
    Me too have combination skin with problems with oily skin in the T-zone and occational zits... :/
    I haven't tried these or any other paper. I just use regular toilet paper or silk paper (the thin paper you use to wrap flowers in) and it works! At least for the oily skin. Obviously there's not treatment in those papers! ;) lol!
    I've just e-mail you darling! :)
    Baci!

    1. Hola Icequeen! No creas que donde estoy haya muchas cosas. En realidad los encargo online, porque aquí todo es muy caro. Fui una vez a comprar blotting paper y me ofrecían el de YSL que costaba 12€ cada sobre de 50 hojitas!! Ahora compro el de NYX en el sitio Cherry culture. Cuando hay ofertas compro 3 o 4 sobres de 50 hojas por 2 USD cada uno!

    2. YSL es muy caro la verdad, sabes se me ha antojado pedir algo alguna ves en cherry culture pero me da miedo que los costos de envio sean extremadamente absurdos. hay algunas cositas que quisiera y probablemente alli las tengan

    3. y si, Icequeen81, tienes razón, YSL es muy caro. Aquí hay una tienda MANOR que tiene productos NYX pero están carisimos! Imagina lo caro que es todo en Suiza que aún pagando gastós de envío salgo siempre ganando.

  3. My skin is also a mix one but I don't use any blotting paper. If I must I use toilet paper or tissues of some kind. Mostly I just ad more powder if I get "oily", especially around my nose. :)

    1. I know what you mean. I've done the same for almost my whole life! but, once I worked for a brand and a colleague told me it looked much better to use blotting paper, and I chose NYX because it's the cheapest :P

  4. Yay - I join the Club - I also got combination skin. I have less isues with shiny T-Zone since I changed my skin care products to L'Occitane. However I still carry the blotting paper of Bobbie Brown in my purse. This was the first blotting paper I tried and was so happy with it that I felt no need for adventures ;-P bisous

    1. Hi Lulu thanks for reading and commenting! They're definitely worth the money, but please, remember these do not replace a necessary treatment for acne!
