Cheap Thrill Thursday!

So not much has changed since yesterday, and it's still pretty darn hot, because, well, it's still July.  And now that your boo-boos are all covered up, here's a quick tip for keeping a fresh face.  It's all about blotting papers!  These babies keep you looking fresh and matte without piling on more makeup, which doesn't really help much anyway.  And for those who know me well, you know that I have oilier skin, and have since I was about 11, so I'm kind of a blotting paper connoisseur at this point in my life.  My two favorites work great and are super inexpensive.  First, the Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets that you can pick up next to the Noxema at any drugstore are about $5 for 50 and are very effective.  They are a little weird at first, because they have a plastic feel to them, but you can literally see them working.  My other favorites are my new favorites thanks to a Sephora Beauty Insider* gift, and they are the Boscia Blotting Linens.  These actually are a little less aggressive than the Clean & Clear ones, which is sometimes what I want, especially in cooler months.  They are actually about the same price per sheet as the C&C sheets, at about $10 for 100.
(*Random tip for those of you who are Sephora Beauty Insiders--their loyalty program for those who aren't--did you know that you can spend more than just 100 points at a time and get more than one gift if it's something you really like?  This is how I ended up with three "freebie" packs of the Boscia linens!)
Stay Fresh,
AL
