Worth It: Don't Shine On, You Crazy Diamond

Illustration for article titled Worth It: Don't Shine On, You Crazy Diamond

Much unlike many a magazine editor who recommends you buy all sorts of crap that they most likely got for free, your Jezebel staff doesn't get jack shit (other than books, unsolicited). And that's how it should be. But on our own time, in our personal lives, we still buy stuff. So this is Worth It, our recommendation of random things that we've actually spent our own money on. These are the things we buy regularly or really like, things we'd actually tell our friends about. And now we're telling you.


I'll bet you're a fancy lady on the go. Don't worry — you're not snobby or showy about it. I can just tell that about you because I am good at reading people. Like, you're probably good at juggling a lot of things, but you still manage to seem human and approachable through it all. That's awesome. I mean, that's what we're all trying to accomplish, you know? Anyway, I think you'd really appreciate Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets because, as a woman who needs to get shit done, but has also has social obligations where she would like to look nice (not that you couldn't have a good time if you didn't — it's amazing how you are always so relaxed), these could be a real life saver for the days when you have a lot going on and won't get a chance to redo your makeup.

Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets come in a little package of 50 that can easily slip into your bag or pocket. They're simple to use — is your face feeling oily or shiny? Simple. Take one of the sheets and dab the oil off your skin. Now you're more matte than Matt LeBlanc. Another perk of these puppies (that retail around $6 a pack, but, pro tip, most Walgreens and Duane Reades carry a generic version for much much less) is that you'll probably see a decrease in blackheads or zits after using them for awhile. Also, it's disgustingly fascinating to see how much oil is on your face, like looking at the wax paper under a slice of pizza. Gross, yes, but you're not squeamish. It's just another reason that you're so fucking cool.

Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets, $4.75 on Amazon.

I've used various kinds before that friends loan me and I don't actually feel like they make a difference... Can you really just use one sheet on your WHOLE face? My face is not that greasy but I still can't see how a tiny square (as opposed to a whole Kleenex-sized sheet) could knock out the shine.
