What we say:
As a girl with combination skin, I’ve always found it tricky to find that balance of keeping my dry cheeks “dewy” and my oily T-zone a bit more matte without slapping on 5 different products. I started using blotting tissues a few years ago and found that it’s the perfect answer to keeping my chin and nose in check. Cettua’s Oil Control Tissues are fantastic. They’re super affordable with great packaging that is slim so you could fit it into any bag. I flew out to a client yesterday (4am wakeup call and only returned home at 11pm) and had to pack as light as possible so I slipped the tissues into my jacket pocket, and it was a lifesaver.
By 7am, my chin and nose were already shining way too much for my liking and with a quick dab of a Cettua tissue, I was good to go until later on that afternoon. I wear minimal make-up (BB cream or tinted moisturiser) and almost never put on powder, so Cettua’s Oil Control Tissues are perfect for sapping up my oily T-zone without requiring me to put on extra makeup. Thank you, BeautySouthAfrica! I have a wedding to attend quite soon – it will be the first thing I toss into my clutch.
At first when I saw that I was to review Cettua Oil Control Tissues, I sighed as this is a product that I had no interest in. Was I wrong! I have really oily skin so make-up on me looks good for about half an hour before I have to start reapplying powder. These tissues come in a small thin package so it is easy to pop in your handbag. When I first felt that my face might be getting shiny, I grabbed a tissue and started dabbing. I could see the oil it took off my face on the tissue.
My make-up however was actually still on my face, Brilliant! There was no need to reapply powder or anything! I have you used the tissues for a while now and they keep on impressing me! I am not a fan of face tissues but this has changed my mind. It is a great product if you have oily skin, and something I would most definitely buy for myself!
When I got home to open up my Cettua Oil Control Tissues, believe or not it was already opened and used! The culprit… my husband! His curiosity got the better of him and he tried them out before me. Surprisingly enough (for a man that fixes cars and goes fishing for fun) he totally loved the tissues. We were both fighting over who can keep them. Needless to say, he won. He now has a pack in his bakkie. I have to go off to Clicks and purchase my own, but I don’t mind. It’s definitely worth the price and more. I love these little packs of tissues. I keep a pack in my handbag, as by lunchtime my face gets oily, so these tissues do the trick. They kind of look and smell like wax paper, and are a bit rough, so you have to wipe/dab gently on your face. All in all, it’s a great product and a convenient little lifesaver. I will definitely be purchasing more.
The packaging of the product is very fancy and convenient, especially for everyday use as the packaging fits perfectly into one’s bag or purse. The Cettua Oil Control Tissues are soft and easy to remove from their pretty envelope packaging. On using the product I did notice that the excess oil was removed from my skin and can be seen on the tissue. I haven’t seen a visible difference yet but maybe with time this can be attained. I feel that this product would be best suited for a younger age group, maybe teenagers. For me, I would prefer that the tissues have a bit more moisture in them.
