Review: Natural Rice Oil-absorbing Rice Paper Tissues

Natural Race Oil-absorbing Rice Paper Tissues

Having an oily skin like mine can be so frustrating! My skin gets insanely greasy, as oil starts to build up profusely 2-3 hours after taking a shower. Thus, it is a must for me to stash oil-blotting sheets in my purse in order to blot the excess sebum off my face especially in case of a beauty emergency. 😉

I’ve tried a lot of oil-blotting sheets available in the market, and of them is the Natural Rice Oil-absorbing Rice Paper Tissues I bought a few weeks back.

Here’s a thing (or two) about these rice paper tissues:

  • The paper is made of rice instead of pulp, which makes it gentler to the skin.
  • Rice powder is actually added on one side of the tissue  in order to further eliminate shine and leave the skin feeling and looking smoother.
  • Natural Race Oil-absorbing Rice Paper Tissues

    Here’s how it looks inside after flipping the cover.

    Natural Race Oil-absorbing Rice Paper Tissues

    Pulled out a paper tissue. You can use either sides of the tissue. Use the darker one (left) if you just want to blot the excess oil sans the power. Opt for the lighter, matte one (right) if you want to set the rice power on your face for a smoother finish.

    The verdict?

    Effectively Blots the Excess Oil Away

    Just like other oil-blotting tissues I’ve tried, it effectively removes the extra oil away from my face. On the other hand, the  special thing it has is that I get to choose from one of the two sides: the one with rice powder and the one without. In this case, I usually opt for the side with the rice powder on for a one-step finish, since it doesn’t require me to put a setting powder on thereafter.


    One thing I’ve noticed is that the rice powder does not leave a hint of color on my skin, even if the label says it has a “natural” color (with definitely a color code, RPA6, written on it). I’m not sure if it’s a good or a bad thing for some, but I actually prefer it that way ‘coz I just want a natural, no-makeup finish. 🙂

    Quite Expensive

    Anyway, I find it very expensive than other oil-blotting tissues on the market. It costs around Php 250-300, considering that it contains only 40 pieces. I find The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Blotting Tissues cheaper for almost the same price but with 65 pieces, although it does not come with an “extra” powder variant. Even better, Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets costs only about Php 100 for 50 sheets, and it comes with powder and powde-free variants!
