I've used oil blotting paper once and it seems to do a good job. But I mostly use tissue paper and just press it against my skin and rub it down once. I find that helps as well.

So what's the difference between the two? Would the oil blotting paper absorb more oil?

I'm curious myself. Because I always use tissue as well. It seems to do the trick for me, and I save money. *shrug*

The oil blotting paper gets a lot more oil for me. I can definately notice the difference when I'm trying to retouch my makeup (if not enough oil's picked up, retouched makeup looks cakey).

Hi,

If you feel like using regular tissue, it's fine, just don't disturb your make-up. Blotting papers are usually specially designed not to disturb make-up, and may also have a special powder coating to prevent further oiliness.

I use blot tissues even when I don't wear make-up.

Also, use a preventative mattifier in the morning, like Origins Zero Oil, Lancome T. Controle, MAC Texture Matte, Clinique Sheer Matteness or as a cheap alternative Milk of Magnesia.

And sometimes I need to use a compact powder after an oil-blotting sheet to give the complete matte look.
