Most of the facial blotting papers I have seen (like Burt's Bees) are using rice paper.

I've read that coffee filters are good for wiping over your hair to remove some oiliness. So, they may also be good for blotting oily skin. And they're cheap.

I've found that the really cheap toilet paper they have in the restrooms where I work (the kind on the giant rolls) works really well for this.  Which is very convenient - I can just blot while I'm in there Wink

Is there anything besides powder that can be added to the paper that will make it able to absorb more oil without messing up makeup? Like, what if astringent, toner, or alcohol was added and you let the papers soak it up and dry out?
