Review E.L.F. Shine Eraser

E.L.F. Essential Shine Eraser, nice and catchy name for a simple oil blotter sheet. It comes in nice flap case made of paper with 50 sheets inside. The paper case is decent and last on me for few months. I like the slim case of Shine Eraser which make it convenient bring around.
Side by side size comparison to E.L.F. Studio Complexion Perfection.

It's an oil blotter, so it does absorbs oil and reduce shine, thus mattifies my skin. But I think pore minimizer, re-texturize skin and imperfections masking are outrages claim. Even with green tea extract, it is still only an oil blotter to me.

As comparison, I got a box of 300 sheets of oil blotter for Daiso for RM 5 and I bought the Shine Eraser for about RM4. So Daiso version priced a lil bit more than Shine Eraser, but it got 250 sheets more than Shine Eraser. I forgot to take picture of the Daiso version box. Hehehe.

In the picture above, I haven't blot my since 10 am, and it's almost 4pm when the picture was taken. You can see that my face has become grease ball. My forehead especially shine like crazy.
Noticed how badly Maybelline Great Lash Mascara smudge.
I blot left half of my face using E.L.F. Essential Shine Eraser and right half using Daiso oil blotter. Both works just as fine.

Picture with and without flash showing used and unused blotter sheets. Both Shine Eraser (left in pic) and Daiso blotter (right in pic) absorbs quite a lot. Usually I only need 1-2 sheets at one time. On very hot and humid weather, I could used up to 4 sheets to fully eliminates shine.

Since the Daiso blotter sheets box quite bulky and a lil impractical to slip into my wallet, I moved some of the sheets into the Shine Eraser case.

Final verdict: Shine Eraser is just a normal oil blotter, it works fine. However I would not repurchased as I find cheaper alternative.

My face does this at times and I had some clean and clear ones they ran out and didn't re-buy them because they went oily and left my face oily too.Go figure.
I think I might get some new ones, since as far as I can see, these work good enough.
Thanks for the comparison, and I loooove the song (I'll steal it from you and post it on fb :p)
Have a fun rest of the weekend!

@lady_flower123 - Muppets FTW!

@Rakhshanda - U're welcome ^_^

@Ria - the Clean and Clear oil blotter hands down is the best I ever tried, but the price a bit too much. That's why I prefer Daiso blotter. The song is great right?! Love muppets.

@Stavroula - They are very handy right!

@Elle - I'm not sure. I heard the opposite, they say blot to prevent too much oil build up on your face. I think why some said it's not good to do so because our face still need those oil, if too much was remove, oil balance will be disrupted, causing more problem.
