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.

    "I now use these instead of reapplying powder when I feel oily."



    “The Beauty Staples that Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, and Felicity Jones are Carrying Inside Their Red Carpet Clutches Tonight”

    "Once each actress steps out of her car and onto the red carpet...she's left to her own devices to maintain her bold lips, sharply shaded eyes, and flash-proof skin throughout the ceremony. For this, she relies on a carefully edited arsenal of products stashed in her gliterring clutch."

How do I use this product?
Gently pat with a single leaflet – do not rub or wipe. Begin with the T-zone and blot entire face. Both sides of the paper sheet can be used. Discard after use.

What step in my skincare ritual is this product?
Aburatorigami paper sheets can be used at any time.

Are the beauty papers only for people with oily skin?
No – many of our customers have drier or more mature skin. The papers are an excellent alternative to powder for 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 in water, the gold flake will not come off.

How do you pronounce aburatorigami, and what does it mean?
Aburatorigami (ah-BOO-rah-tour-i-gah-mee) refers to the gold-leaf origin of the blotting papers. The literal translation is ‘oil papers’, referring to the absorbent quality of the leaf.

  • Love it!

    This product is fabulous. My face and skin also appreciate the results of the daily ritual. These alone keep me coming back for more. The added benefits are the service, integrity and personalized touches TATCHA sends with every order. The quality of their products and packaging, well you'll have to try it to fully understand. The best so far...and I've used a lot of products in my lifetime. :)

  • The best of the blotting papers (but- this one is a sheet)

    I always skipped the blotting papers because most of the brands I have tried were very thin, small and not worth the time. They would fall apart. Like the difference between a great paper towel and an average or less type. I work under hot lights on TV and these are very helpful. I love that they are so affordable. Gently press and your done! Use as needed.

  • Cream blush stays on all day

    I have always had a problem in the warm Florida climate with cream blush melting into my skin an hour or so after application. Now that I am using Tatcha blotting papers, I pay special attention to the cheek area when blotting and the blush adheres to the skin and remains put throughout the day. Previously, I had to reapply blush often and it caused breakouts. Not any more! I just love these little blotting papers!
