    We know this summer struggle all too well: You wash your face in the morning and step out onto the street with mostly matte, somewhat dewy skin — basking in your flawlessness. Fast-forward to midday (or post-morning commute, if you're like me), and your T-zone has basically transformed itself into a slip 'n slide — and not the fun kind.

    That's when oil-blotting sheets come in handy. Though we swear by papers from Tatcha and Neutrogena, we know that not everyone enjoys — or can afford — dishing out cash money for 'em. Well, it turns out, there are lots of alternative blotting products that can be found around your home (or even in your local Starbucks).

    Click through to learn about eight not-so-obvious oil super-soakers that will help make your mug matte again.
