Product of Japan
The story of Aburatorigami begins in the opulence and glitter of Kyoto over one thousand years ago.
Back then, gold leaves were extensively used for decorating temples and making furnishings and crafts.
Goldsmiths used thin pieces of paper to keep their gold sheets separated. The sheets were then repeatedly hammered to turn them into super-thin leaves. After that, they reused the pieces of paper for packaging the gold leaves to be shipped to Kyoto.
A few noble ladies (who did not like to throw things away!) took notice of the exceptional smoothness of the paper and tried using them to remove excess oil from their faces. And it worked!
Word spread through Kyoto, and Aburatorigami was born. Its fabrication and use have stayed virtually unchanged for over a thousand years.
Lady Butterfly is made by stacking alternate sheets of Abaca paper and gold and hammering the stack in a manual press more than 50,000 times (compared to less than 3,000 for most other blotting papers.)
The result is a super-smooth and highly absorbent sheet of beautiful paper, thinner than 1/2 the thickness of human hair.

I bought this product because I have combination skin that gets shiny in weird places during the day, especially my T zone. I did not think much of it and did not think it was going to do anything magical. Alas, I was blown away by this product as it lifted off all the excess oil that I didn't know I had, gave my face a neat glow, and left my light makeup intact and fresh. I would definitely recommend this product to individuals who have oily t-zones during the day. Thank you WAWAZA!
Soft and gentle like the lady butterfly
They are so practical - get rid of excess oil in your face on the go...my forehead, chin and nose always start to become very oily at noon...it‘s the best thing ever to quickly and comfortably get rid of any excess oil in your face - I love it and it also feels great! Also, it‘s lovely packed and really beautiful!
I have combination skin (really oily T-zone) and live in a humid environment. So I am continually fighting shine. I just pat my face with one of these and voila! The shine is gone. I also like that they don't contain powder, so they don't leave any pasty residue on skin. And the packaging is so beautiful and tasteful. Highly recommend.
these little sheets of paper are so particular, to look at them you wouldn’t think they do such a great job. They seem just tiny fragile sheets, but when you wipe one over the face it is kind of magic :). It removes all the excess greasiness, adjusts shiny parts without drying and if you look closely, leaves a kind of very fine luminous layer, but naturally luminous, not shiny, not “glittering” like the makeups do. It’s not easy to explain, should just try to see. Evidently it is because of the extremely fine gold particles, I’d be curious to see the exact action of these sheets on a microscope, at a cellular level. - this is of those ‘one of a kind’ products who become easily your "daily friends" because they’re so quick, handy and effective. And I would say also the cost is great, 50 sheets one everyday is almost 2 months of use – to have a true gold on your skin for less than 5 euros per month, I think it is definitely a good price. Thank you Wawaza!!
My face is not that oily and I have been using it for touching up during the day since it does a great job with removing shininess and oily feeling from my skin without making it feel dry and without smearing my makeup. I think they are a little expensive but $10 is probably not bad compared to what's out there.
I be honest, at first I didn't think much of it, as I don't suffer from oily skin or extra shine. I still appreciated it the nice gift, but did not thought I was going to get much use from it. HOWEVER, after I applied my moisturizer (Bijin oil), I decided to use one of these nifty little paper pads and wow! These little papers really do as the product states. They did remove the excess rice bran oil that I had on my face without drying out that section of my face. I usually remove the excess with a clean towel but at times it feels like I removed all of the oil, however with this paper it felt as if only the surface oil was removed. I am uncertain if I will buy this product in the future, as I don't suffer of oily skin nor shine. However, for those out there that are looking for a product that will remove excess oil without drying your skin or ruining your makeup, this would be the product to spend your money on! :)
