Clinique Pore Minimizer Oil-Blotting Sheets
Advantages: Works much better than others
These sheets help to minimize pores and also to help blot the excess oil that may appear any time on the your face. I like this product because it does do exactly what is written on the packet!
The product --> These are in tiny packet, which in pink and has a little flap opening at the front. It has the Clinique logo on the front, and short description underneath it. The sheets are very think, but they are easy to separate in the packet. It only takes one to touch up your whole face, and I find that I don't need to use them every day anyway. They are really for oily skin and enlarged pores - a cateorgory I fit into and sometimes do that need of extra help (especially around the forehead).
Once the oil has soaked onto the sheet, it does turn transparent so you know it has done is job and it's ready to be chucked in the bin! These are perfect to keep in a handbag, but I used them the most at a festival - where is is harder to keep pores unblocked and skin looking healthy. Sometimes, especaially during hot days at work where my make up need to be re done, these are fab for wiping away the excess oil only - and not the make up itself. Which is good if you remember these and not your foundation.
There are others out there however which offer a very close comparison, such as boots own variety where you get 30 sheets and they really are very similar. However, I find that they only really work about 70% as well, and can remove make up too as you have to be slightly more stubborn with these. Although, money wise they are far more cheaper.
After looking for these for a while again through Clinique I have come to the conclusion that they have discontinued the stock. They were about £8 last time I brought them, and now can only purchase through ebay! So I am going to try and find some others that will work the same, although I really don't know if other brands are going to be as good as Clinque!
Summary: Unfortunately this has been discontinued - but if you can find them a great purchase
