Yes, I said from my husband’s vault!
I have known my husband for over five years. and he still surprises me daily with some of the things he says. Over time he has given me suggestions on products to use and facial care routines to follow, and I gladly try out his methods.
As an oily girl, I am always dab-dab-dabbing my face all day to keep oil at bay. I usually make sure I have spare napkins and tissues floating around in my purse to help me out when time comes. I’m sure if you were to follow me with a camera all day, and look at the footage, I’m either dabbing my face, touching my hair, or giggling like a maniac.
With that said, I don’t know how this conversation came up, but he told me that he uses TOILET SEAT COVERS to dab away at his sebum! Whaaat?
Apparently I’ve been living under a rock because it is a common things that people use to keep oil at bay. It definitely makes sense to use. The consistency of the paper is just right to absorb oil, and it’s FREE! Well at least it’s free for me. (Sorry office building)
Since I work in an office building with a shared restroom, I decided to put it to the test. I took two toilet seat covers and cut them up into small pieces.
I tried dabbing my oil after cutting the toilet seat cover into small pieces. The paper itself is slightly thin and would definitely work for you if you are only slightly oily.
I tried them while I had makeup on, and I feel I would need quite a few pieces to absorb makeup and oil. However, having these saved in my makeup bag will help me if I’m in a pinch. While I probably won’t cut any to use again once I use up what I saved, I would use a toilet seat cover to dab if I didn’t have anything else on hand, say at a sporting event or a mall excursion.
