Setz Beauty Blot + Translucent Powder Review [Beauty Review]
December 11, 2018
Setz Beauty claims to be the very first on-the-go disposable technology that’s an alternative to the oil blotting papers. The Setz Beauty Blot + Translucent Powder comes in a single use package complete with Setz’s custom applicator with a plastic tray containing the translucent powder. With an affordable price tag and a convenient pick-up location at your local CVS/Pharmacy, is the Setz Beauty Blot + Translucent Powder the next best travel-friendly oil blotter?
Setz Beauty Blot + Translucent Powder Review and Details:
~Item Claims: A travel-friendly, single use oil blotter with translucent powder when you need to touch up those extra oily skin days.
~Price: $4 for a 5 count
~Overall Rating: 3/5
~Review: So these little Setz Blotters are made for on-the-go situations when your skin gets really oily and you need a touch up. They come in a single use package with a blotter in a small tray that’s holding a small amount of the translucent powder. Each package is recyclable and cruelty free as well! Personally, I occasionally need to touch up the forehead area, especially during the summer. I typically use my Innisfree No Sebum Powder in the mornings, but I don’t take it with me ever.
Enter the Setz Blotters. They’re great for throwing in your purse in the mornings (would be great for plane travel as well!). And, they do come with an adequate amount of powder. I used one towards the end of the day when my forehead started to look a lil too shiny for my liking. It indeed took the shine away. However, I am not a fan of the blotter. It honestly reminds me of the little foam shapes we used to play/decorate with in Kindergarten. It doesn’t do a great job of spreading the powder but instead somewhat sticks to it. I compared it to my Innisfree Powder and the Setz powder doesn’t seem quite as fine either.
Overall, they’re okay. I’d use them if I’m desperate or need a touch up travelling. But it isn’t something I desperately need to have. If the blotter was different, I think I would’ve liked this product much more.
