Here’s something I never leave home without:  Sephora Blotting Papers.  I have used so many types of blotting papers over the years and have never been 100% satisfied.  Some would work phenomenally well but only have 30 in the pack for $15 or something ridiculous like that.  Some would be dirt cheap but then not work or strip off makeup. 

So I tried the Sephora brand and lo and behold, they work great at a reasonable price (100 sheets for $8).  They come in three varieties:  Lavender, Tea Tree, and Vitamin C+E. 

I have a pack of these in my purse at all times, one pack in the bathroom, and one pack in my car.  They are seriously that essential to me (or more likely, I have a hoarding problem when it comes to beauty products).
