Look how elegant their packaging is! When I first receive this, I don't even want to open it because I am scare that it will ruin the beautiful packaging that came with the blotting paper.

The packaging of the blotting paper has 4 different colors of a geisha holding an umbrella.

The colors are red, green, blue, and purple.

This is before and after photo of me using the blotting paper after putting on moisturizer. 
My Thoughts
As you can see, I get rid of the excess oil in my face leaving my face shine-free. I love that the blotting paper doesn't take away the moisture in my face while absorbing the oil. What I love about this blotting paper the most is the size of the paper. It can use for my whole face until the Clean & Clear one I used before. They are just too small and I have to use at least 2 to get rid of oil at my face. The oil absorbency is amazing! 

The packaging is simple and elegant. It's easy to open and close. I love how the geisha has different colors. The products are all natural leaflet that are powder-free, fragrance-free and most importantly handmade. 

The price is pretty affordable for $12 for a packet of 30 sheets as the papers are much larger than one on the market. 

I am not trying to rave about a product just because they were sent to me for free. If I don't like it, I will say it. I love this product a lot and would definitely recommend to others!
