e.l.f. Professional Shine Eraser

Happy Wednesday!!!

I recently ran out of my favorite oil absorbing sheets.
Fortunately, I found this hiding in my makeup kit:

e.l.f. Professional Shine Eraser.

Does that happen to you guys?
You get something and completely forget about it, and then it miraculously shows up when you need it. ;)

Photobucket

- absorbs oil & shine
- mattifies skin
- pore minimizer

Photobucket

These amazing little sheets instantly absorb oil, minimize pores, and transforms shiny skin into gorgeous matte perfection. Woven texture eradicates shine and keeps skin matte for hours. Green Tea Extract helps re-texturize skin and masking facial imperfections. Travel pack fits neatly into your purse for on-the-go touch-ups. 50 sheets included.

They absorb oil and shine well and they also give my face a somewhat matte feel, but I'm not sure if they really minimize pores. Maybe it does a little bit over time, but it hasn't happened for me, haha! ;)

I like the look of these sheets -- the color and the flecks of green tea extracts make it feel all-natural.

The texture is light, so it doesn't feel heavy on the face.

At $1, I think it's a really good buy.
It may not impress everyone, but it definitely won't hurt your pocket to get these. ;)

Have you tried e.l.f. Professional Shine Eraser? Did you like it?
What brand do you use?

  4. I've tried it and I liked it. Although I find that oil absorbing sheets doesn't really work for me most of the time.
