Oil-Blotting Papers

Blotting papers can be great for a quick fix. If you find your T-zone getting oily by midday, blotting papers are perfect. However, if you have seriously oily skin, papers are next to useless.

Oil-blotting papers are meant for normal or combination skin, so don’t expect miracles. If you want a quick fix for occasional oil, stash some blotting papers in your bag.

Blotting Sticks

If you have oily skin and blotting papers don’t make a dent, upgrade to a blotting stick. Benefit the POREfessional License to Blot Oil-Blotting Stick can totally transform your skin.

Use a blotting stick to target oily spots for a long-lasting matte look. In fact, Benefit's stick lasts for an impressive six hours. Use it solo or over your makeup.
