Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder is a finely-milled powder used to set makeup and/or retouch to prevent or prolong oil-control.
From Innisfree’s website:
1. Sebum control powder that allows for non-greasy, downy baby skin
Sebum absorption powder and mineral sebum control powder absorb excess sebum for a bright, downy skin as if presently putting on makeup.
2. Jeju natural minerals and mint for refreshing control of oil and moisture
Sebum absorption powder with Jeju natural minerals and mint restores an unhealthy balance of oil and moisture, leaving a refreshing finish.
3. Absorbing excess sebum and oil for downy makeup and an even skin tone
Absorbs excess sebum and oil to prevent makeup from becoming patchy, while correcting dull skin tone to keep the skin bright and radiant all day.
How to use
In the last stage of your daily skincare routine or makeup, use powder puff to gently apply onto entire face or sebum concentrated areas.
I bought the 5g powder from BeautyMNL at PhP500. Even if the powder is only of a small size, I still think it will last long because you don’t need that much product to use. I have been eyeing this powder because I heard does the job of oil-control.
It comes in a plastic mint-green jar with a small puff. The size is just right to bring in your purse for touch-ups and travel because it doesn’t take much space.
I can’t say though that it is my favorite even if it is my current go-to. The powder does control oil. But there’s no difference when I set my makeup with it or not. Weird, but that’s how it works for me. 😛 My nose still gets oily the same hour mark. If I use it to touch-up, it is able to control sebum for hours. So I use this mainly to touch-up, which I do so four to five hours after I apply makeup. It helps prolong the makeup on my oily t-zone as well as minimize pores.
The powder brightens and gives a bit of white cast, but I prefer a translucent powder. If you’re into under-eye brightening or even baking, this could work. This also has a slight scent–A minty scent–That I’m not a fan of.
There are other powders I can and want to try, so personally I might not repurchase. Yet, the product does deliver. I can recommend to those who are looking for an affordable loose oil-control and brightening powder.
The Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder is available at BeautyMNL for PhP500. A pact variant is available if you’re not a fan of loose powders. Innisfree is also available at SM’s Beauty Section.
