I first discovered Tacha Aburatorigami Blotting Papers in the September Birchbox, and savored each sheet until they were gone. Some time passed, and I decided I needed these to be on my person at all times — and they are the obvious Beauty VIP for me this week.
These are the most elegant blotting papers I’ve encountered – they’re even flecked with real gold leaf and are all-natural and oil-absorbing rock stars. We have Japanese royalty to thank for that – during Imperial times, handmade paper was used to protect gold and silver as it was hammered into decorative gold leaf and Geishas used the leftover papers, flecked with precious metals, to keep their skin matte.
For $12, you’ll get 30 sheets – plus some loyalty points on Birchbox!
