Too Cool For School – Blotting Paper & Puff Review


If you have combination or oily skin then you’re probably well acquainted with blotting paper. They usually come in a slim paper packet that gets worn around the edges over time. Sometimes they even look a little squashed and start looking a little shabby. So when I was picking up the Magic Wands from Too Cool For School, I knew I had to buy this blotting paper case too!

Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Paper has an absurdly long name, but has an award winning design to make up for it. The blotting paper comes in a plastic case instead of cardboard, so if you’re looking for something sturdy to carry your blotting paper in, this is it. It looks like some other K-Beauty brands such as Etude House and Nature Republic both have plastic cases for blotting paper, but the pink Etude House case looks like a little girl’s plaything and the Nature Republic case is green, bland, and boring.



The other special thing about this blotting paper case is that it comes with a puff. I love the seafoam color with the words Dinoplatz scrawled on the ribbon. This whimsical puff makes it so easy to pick up a sheet of blotting paper.


The puff works its magic with a large sticky adhesive. I know some regular blotting paper packets have adhesives on the flap, but overtime they lose their stickiness. This puff comes with 5 adhesive sheets so you can change it when need be. I think it’s things like this that really make you love a product even more. The attention to detail that makes my life easier, and the generous number of adhesives keeps me from having to worry about the puff becoming obsolete when the adhesive dies. The puff also  lets you to blot your face without the embarrassment of everyone seeing how much oil you had on your face. The case has a handy magnified mirror and 50 sheets of Korean mulberry blotting paper. When you run out you can purchase refills instead of having to pay for a case again. Here’s to clever yet functional design for beauty products! Cheers!

Your turn ♥ Which blotting paper do you use? Do you prefer the blue film sheets or the paper sheets?

    That puff… I am so loving this. And you’re so right, eventually they lose their stickiness. I am so loving this product. Thanks for sharing it with us, I must find it somewhere.

      Too Cool For School is a K-Beauty brand that recently launched in the US through Sephora. I believe they will sell their products through their website soon though!

  • This is so great! I love that you can use the puff to grab the blotting paper…such a cool idea!


    • Kim

      Isn’t it a neat idea? It makes using blotting paper fun lol

  • This looks really cool, and it’s actually very useful when I think about it! Pressing blotting papers on my face means I don’t get even blotting (ever noticed how you can see like the shape of your fingers printed in oil on the paper? Yuck…) and the puff makes it clean and efficient. I’ll definitely try when I run out of my current blotting paper (Shiseido Pureness, pretty good).

      Now that you mention it, it really does press the blotting paper evenly compared to using just your fingers. I would say that the only downside is that these sheets are a bit smaller than what I’m used to, but because it’s so cheap here in Korea (refills are about $2) and they are thicker than some other ones like the DHC.

  • Ooo this sounds like a really nice blotting paper :) I like how you can attach the applicator

      Yes it makes it very easy to use! You don’t have to try to pick one sheet and end up picking up several. The sticky part just picks up the one on top :)

  • Not only does this sound like a great product in itself, the packaging is adorable! It always gets me when companies take the time to take care of little details, whether that’s in the design or the product’s functionality.

    • Kim

      Isn’t it cute? I liked this option much better than the two others by different brands. I feel like more brands should pay more attention to how they design their products. It makes me happy when I use a well designed product :D

  • Absolutely gorgeous branding and product design here!

      Hehe, Too Cool For School really excels in the design department! I was told that they call their different locations “art studios” rather than “stores.” ;)

  • I love how well thought out this product is. You can totally tell that the people behind the brand really care about their product! This product looks super cool too. I’ve never thought that oil blotting sheets could be so fancy, haha! I’ll definitely have to check them out!

      I love that this brand is so creative when they come to their design! It really is the little details that make our experience so much nicer! I believe they’ve launched in Sephora ;)

  • Wow this is so cute! I love how it comes with a puff. But I kinda feel like, if you’re going to carry around this case, you might as well carry around a powder compact! That’s what I usually do.

      Ahh, this is actually a tad smaller and lighter than my powder compact. I like to take it when I’m carrying a mini crossbody bag along with a tinted lip balm. Minimalistic I guess you could say ;)

  • Wow, this product is ama-zing cool!
    Though i do not have an oily skin, still i’ll find time to check out this cool product in Too Cool for School and i do enjoy this dino design and all of their hand-drawing illustration gives a vibe x fun feeling :D

      I also like to use blotting paper after I use my foundation and before I use powder. I learned that trick in one of the makeup videos by Wayne Goss on Youtube and it makes the powder go on seamlessly!

  • I#UND@&(&JJ37480uy3*#!!!!! OMG this is so cool!!

      Where do you live? I know in the US they are out through Sephora but I’m not sure about other countries.
