I'm actually blotting the excess oil from my face.
I'm vain and insecure, and Scott had a camera (as the photo indicates).
It's a really bad habit I picked up. I blot my face in traffic. While I'm sitting at the counter in cafes. While I'm talking to people in mid-conversation. Whipped a blotter paper out once when hitting on a girl at a VC party and removed about a gallon of oil and sweat from my face while we talked (and it didn't seem to make a difference - which was awesome - anybody who doesn't walk away from you while you do that is someone worth, I don't know, probably marrying).
I use the Clean and Clear brand, by the by. Just in case any of you want to blot your faces just like I do. It's easily the best vanity blotter paper on the market. Also some of the only vanity blotter paper on the market.
You won't be sorry. And you'll take care of that pesky sheen.
