There is something about blotting with gold leaf that just makes a girl feel special :) I love pulling these out of my purse during an evening out to share with friends. I used to carry around the original version, but this one is just a little bit smaller and more portable and works just as well.

TATCHA beauty papers were originally created by gold craftsmen to protect the precious metal they hammered into whisper-thin leafing to enrobe the majestic pavilions of Imperial Japan. Their gold-leaf artistry transformed the supporting paper into aburatorigami, an incredibly soft, strong and absorbent leaflet ideal for removing excess oils from delicate skin. How our geisha discovered that this precious by-product of the artisan’s alchemy could help create a perfect canvas for her makeup and keep her skin petal-fresh throughout the night remains a mystery. But the benefits of her ancient beauty secret remain unsurpassed to this day.
How do I use this product? Gently pat (never rub or wipe) a single leaflet about the face, starting with the T-Zone. Use both sides. Discard after use.
Are TATCHA beauty papers only for those with oily skin? No, some of our most passionate customers have dry or more mature skin. They love the product as a powder alternative to keeping skin petal fresh.
Will the gold flake transfer onto my skin? No, the gold flake is transfer resistant. Unless the paper is completely soaked with water, the gold flake will not come off.
What makes the Evening Aburatorigami different from the Original? Designed to be carried in even the smallest of clutches, the Evening Aburatorigami papers are made to keep you shine-free on your nights out. The papers are infused with charcoal to make them just as absorbent, despite the smaller size.
Do the papers leave any residue on my face? No – the papers are free of powder, fragrance, and pulp. The gold leaf and charcoal are transfer-resistant.
