Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets

I stumbled across these Shine Absorption Sheets in a pile of post I received whilst I was at University.
I opened up one of my Asos magazines and there it was. I was actually really curious about this product because I love sheets like this. My favourites are the Mac Blot Film sheets. I've tried cheaper ones but they just don't work as well. Luckily I don't need to use them as much nowadays as I used to, but it can still be quite pricey to buy 30 sheets for £10.50 from Mac. 

I have tried the new Kleenex line already in the form of facial cloths and wasn't that impressed at all. I actually haven't given the line a second look since then. However I figured that since I was already given these in the magazine, it wouldn't hurt to try them out. I've not seen them in the shops, but after some research online I have found that they are sold in stores like Superdrug and Tesco. You get 50 sheets for around 2.99 which is miles cheaper than the Mac ones, so if these work I could be saving myself a pretty penny.

They are slightly different to the Mac ones in design. The Mac film is blue and goes a darker blue to show where the oil has been absorbed. However these sheets are almost a fluffy material with a design on one side and then a typical film on the other, as shown in the pictures above. You use the film side to blot the oil off your face as per any other film. And the magic thing is, they actually work! Yayyyy!

They absorb the oil just as well as my Mac film does so I'm actually really happy with them. My only con to this product is that you can't tell where the oil has been absorbed as well as with the Mac ones. They do go a slightly darker purple but it isn't that visible. Therefore it's slightly more difficult to get the full usage out of a sheet but it is doable.

I would definitely recommend these to people with oily skin and am really pleased that I have found something in this line that I like! Have you tried these or any other products from the Kleenex line? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
