The Sephora ones feel a little bit thinner but I'm not sure that actually makes a difference in functionality. There's no real difference between the Clean & Clear, store brands, and Sephora brand. Just stock up on whatever's on sale.

They are not that different, and I wouldn't just stck on one. I prefer the Sephora one, and I have tried both. But, branch out, find the ones you like and reveiw it. Find the ones you hate and reveiw them. I love reveiwing things because you get to tell people if they are spending their money on the right things or not! As I said, branch out, try all the options and reveiw.

Their is no difference at all. I have the store brand of the Clean & Clear ones, and the ingredients are exactly the same in all 3, and they are listed in the same order. Sephora, Clean & Clear, and the "generic" store brand are all identical. The only difference is the price...Sephora being the most expensive and the store brand being the least expensive.

I personally saw no difference between the two blotting sheets. I think that they do an equal job at blotting oil. The only difference is the difference in price of the two products.

These won't dry you out, they only pick up excess oil on top of your skin. Perfect for those summer oil slicks!

If you have dry skin then you should NOT purchase these. These are basically little sheets (roughly 3" x 2") that you use to soak up oil on your face. They do nothing else for your skin. For example, if your forehead is showing a little bit of shine, say in the middle of your work day, you would just take a sheet out, lay it flat against your forehead and run your fingers over it while pressing down to really soak up the oil. Then when your done (takes only seconds) you'll see the film looks clear-ish in the areas that absored oil. Then just throw the sheet in the trash and your skin should look normal again, like it did before that mid-day shine came out for a visit! :)
So as you can see from my example, if you have dry skin, you would have no use for these. They literally do nothing except soak up oil. They won't give your dry skin a better complexion or anything like that.
Hope this helps!! :)

My personal thought is that I would not bother wasting money on these unless you have oily spots that need blotting. If you have dry skin, I see no value for you. Just my opinion.....best of luck!

answer 1
Well, the blotting film is a lighter paper, therefore it does not pick up lots of oil. The paper picks up a bunch more oil. I would recomend having both on hand, because the paper one can, and will, help with that special time once a month, when your skin is at it's nastyness. And the blotting film will help every other day. I love both to peices and I can't live without them!

They are basically the same thing, except the blotting films are much more absorbant and pick up way more oil. The papers work well, are cheaper and have more, but I'd recommend the botting film because it absorbs more oil and does a better job at reducing shininess.

The blotting films are thicker and more absorbant- if you have an oil slick like I do to soak up, the film is a better choice.

These are a better quality than the matte blotting paper. They absorb better that the paper and are not harmful to the skin.

They are very equal. I prefer the sephora ones, though. But, you should try both and figure out what one you like best, then tell the world. And find the ones you dislike and tell the world. I love reveiwing, because you can vent to the world how much you hate a product, or you can tell the world that you are in love with this product. I reveiw stuff for a living and I love it. People should reveiw more if they like a product. This is not one of the products I had to do. I chose to reveiw this product and people call me a workaholic, and I agree with them, The best part about my job is that you can sit on your butt, in your pajamas, on a laptop, and get paid for doing it. Iget free things from all the companies that I give good reveiws to and one company even sent me a christmas card with a bunch of free stuff! I love my job!

They are the same size, but the papers pick up a bunch more oil. I recomend having both on hand, because of the special days that your skin is more oily. But they both work very good, dispite the expensive price. If they are your first ones, I reccomend the Blotting Papers with the silver case.

There is a touch of mineral oil in it . I have oily skin and this product does not make me break out. It just absorbs the oil and leaves your makeup alone.

Question
How does Sephora's Matte Blotting Film compare against Sephora's Blotting Paper?
Sephora's blotting film has 50 sheets, whereas the blotting paper has 100 sheets. Does one do a better job than the other (i.e. soaks up more oil, more value, etc.)?

I think the film does work better. Although they cost more and are smaller than the papers, they seem to be sturdier and absorb more oil. They're also quiet so I don't mind using them at my cubicle at work. I buy the papers to use at home.

These sheets are really only designed to remove the excess oil from your face. Since they do not even remove the makeup underneath the oil, I cannot foresee them removing any sunscreen that has already been absorbed by the pores. Hope this helps.
