When your T-zone starts to shine, wipe with these oil-absorbing sheets to restore freshness and make your make-up last longer.

Jill Stuart Blotting Paper

(HK$130/ 70 sheets)

It's pretty inside and out, with a pink fabric case and the brand's logo printed on the thin sheets of paper, which contain oil-absorbing powder, plus a proper mirror.

Anna Sui Oil Control Paper

(HK$155/ 80 sheets)

This thin paper instantly absorbs excess oil on the face and leaves it soft. It comes with a fancy, refillable case with a mirror.

Ettusais Powdered Oil Blotting paper (HK$30/ 70 sheets)

Very reasonably priced. Lightly powdered sheets that effectively mop up excess oil, all in a cute, Muji-esque packet.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blotting Tissues (HK$35/65 sheets)

Tea tree oil is an acne treatment, so it makes sense to use it with blotting papers that dry up excess oil. These are very reasonably priced given the added benefits.

Orbis Face Paper (HK$39/30 sheets)

Gets the job done with no frills: holds backs the shine and freshens the skin. It would be better, though, if the square sheets were slightly smaller.
