Blotting paper isn’t a new invention, they’ve been used for centuries to help reduce oil and shine on the spot. Aburatorigami papers were originally created for Japanese gold leaf artisans to protect the metal as they hammerered it into paper-thin pieces. The crafty geisha realized that these papers were ideal for keeping her skin oil-free without stripping it of moisture. No one’s sure how she figured out this nifty trick, but we would guess it involved a jewelry-making lover.
Tatcha Blotting Paper is made in Japan using 100% Abaca leaf and real gold flakes. There’s nothing synthetic, no powders and no fragrance. The packaging is simply elegant and speaks for itself.
If your skin is dry, you can use blotting paper in place of powder. If your skin is oily, use these to reduce shine throughout the day. They’re also perfect to dab up any oil or shine at the end of a long plane flight. These are a must come summer!
