Tatcha Japanese Blotting Papers Review

It's been a while sine I've last done a review, so I thought I might talk about this product I received from a fellow beauty blogger (oops, I forgot who I won from!).

Wow, the packaging is so pretty, I'm impressed already!

Okay, so here's what the website says:

A 300 year old Japanese beauty secret for a petal fresh complexion revealed.
Removes excess oil and sweat without disturbing makeup or stealing moisture from the skin.
A powder and primer alternative that improves the wear of makeup.
For all skin types: oily, normal, dry & sensitive.
100% abaca leaf, gold flake.
Fragrance-free. Powder-free. Oil-free.
All-natural, biodegradable. No animal testing.
Handmade in Japan.

One pack 30 sheets costs $12, but it is really worth it? Let's find out! x3

Here's what it looks like inside:

The inside cover has a little story about how Geishas actually get their flawless skin from aburatorigami - Japanese beauty papers, which is exactly what this product is! How cool is that!

Close up of the paper:

Do you notice this little specks of gold?

Each sheet is so pretty that I an't even bear to ruin it on my dirty face!


Here are the results I came up with!

Yes, very horrifying to see how much oil there is on it, but that proves how good this product is!
Can you believe that I only used this one sheet for my whole face? (you can use both sides!)

Overall, I was really impressed with this!

Packaging: A+ - Has a really unique and natural design while still aiming to be minimalist

Quality: A+ - Gold flakes and albaca leaf. As fancy as a sheet of blotting paper can get!

Effectiveness: A+/A - It's amazing how much oil these little sheets suck in, but may not last for the whole day.

Price: A - $12 for 30 sheets is not exactly cheap for blotting papers, but it's definitely worth it considering the amazing quality and usefulness!

General Experience: A+ - If you're looking for some good blotting papers, definitely try out Tatcha!



  1. Oooh.. now I want to try this. Usually whenever I feel my face get oily I go and wash it and reapply moisturizer but clearly that won't work if I go out

  2. That's why I love blotting papers, they're fast and efficient when you're on the go! :D

  3. oh wow! the packaging does look very pretty!
    thanks for sharing =)
