I use Muji’s blotting papers. It’s like $2 for 100 decently sized sheets and it comes in a minimalist paper container that’s relatively sturdy. I buy a handful at a time and put one in a handbag, next to my sunscreen, at home, at work, etc.
I used to buy Boscia’s, but I think $10 for 100 blotting paper sheets is atrocious no matter how nice they first smell. I personally think the Jolse ones are a little too small.
honestly I think brown paper towels are just as good if not better... I’d only use the sheets if I was wearing makeup, since the paper towel texture can disturb my makeup.
I used Clean and Clear blotting sheets as a teenager just fine. Napkins too for that matter. You might be interested to know that around here, Innisfree's No Sebum Loose Powder is a favorite for preventing oil breakthrough. It would be undetectable on skin even for men, so it's worth thinking about using a powder despite how it's so strongly characterized as a feminine thing.
I don't use those much, but if you are looking for a cheap and unscented (not pink and rose-scented since you said for a guy?), Jolse has their own-brand paper that they've sent me as gift with purchase and they (afaik) ship worldwide, and I imagine it's cheaper than brand names. It's plain in a plain package and has no scent.
Barring that, why not brown paper towels if they work? I've used laboratory wipes tons of times when I worked in a lab, too - the lint-free ones were just awesome!
