I haven't posted in a while so i thought i'd as least share a tip i learned a few years back.

My face just started getting oily a few years ago, before that i never paid much attention to those oil blotting sheets they sell at the drug store until i needed them, and once i did i started trying to find ways to keep from having to buy them because they can get a bit pricey. Times are tough and toilet seat covers are a cheaper alternative!

It sounds a bit weird but trust me it works wonders.

  • How to make skincare. Oil Blotting Sheets - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you want to make sure your instruments are sanitized. Using a cotton swab & the rubbing alcohol clean your scissor blades.

    Step 2

    After the scissors are clean put on your gloves and grab the toilet seat cover.(DO NOT TOUCH THE TOILET SEAT COVER WITHOUT GLOVES- YOU DONT WANT TO SPREAD THE OILS AND BACTERIA IN YOUR HANDS ONTO THE SEAT COVER)

    cut the toilet seat cover as best you can into pieces big enough to fit on a business card holder...you can obviously use a business card as a templete.

    once you're done fill the business card holder with the sheets of cut up toilet seat covers and use as you would any other oil blotting sheets...REFILL AS NEEDED.

My skin is really oily. Especially here in Asia where the weather is hot, I always need to powder my face. My lifesaver is Chambuu Facial Blotting tissue. You can purchase it here http://amzn.to/1Rg1Kjt. Use this discount code: WYMBLF6S (code works. tried it yesterday).

Well i work at a hospital so it's very hygienic but just in case i try to hit the restrooms around 7am after their cleaned in the morning and only take seat covers from packages i open myself so i know they're new and clean. Rice paper's nice but this tutorial is for those looking to not have to buy anything.

Rice paper is cheap and in my opinion more hygienic than a toilet seat cover stolen from a dirty public restroom. Unless you can figure out a way to get a sterile box or toilet paper covers.

The trouble is finding a way to smuggle the seat covers out of restrooms without looking like... well, like you're smuggling seat covers Happy great tutorial, though! I have heard of using seat covers as a blotter, but didn't think of putting them in a business card holder. Great idea!

witch hazel would work well also. you can buy it at a cheap price in a big bottle. smells funny but to me smells better than alcohol

i think you could also use tissue paper (like the stuff you put into gift bags)
