Paper Power: Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers
by Tess Ma

We won’t lie, we make half of our shopping decisions based on packaging, and Tatcha has done it right in this department. Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers? We're sold. These blotting papers come in quaint packets, and the sheets themselves look like gold-flecked rice paper. According to Tatcha, you can use these blotting papers in place of your primer or setting powder and achieve the porcelain-smooth skin of a geisha – if only it was that easy! But at HK$75 for 30 sheets, stock up for the summer humidity or just let it sit pretty in your handbag.
