I haven't bought a Clean & Clear product since I was learning how to use a tampon (too gross?), but when a co worker and I began chatting in the bathroom, she introduced me to Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets, which rival only pore strips for fascinating/kind of nasty face cleaning products.
Lots of people may be aware of oil absorbing, perfumed rice papers, but these are more high tech, I bet their commercial even has some fake science to back it up. The sheet begins light blue then, as you wipe your face, it turns see through and leaves your face glowing and matte. They cost about $6 for 50 sheets, an extravagance to be sure for a species that could survive in the wild without makeup at all if we really wanted to, but a small price to pay if you too rue the photographs where your face is shining like a beacon.
