Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder

Hello loves!

Having oily skin is not an easy thing. Your makeup doesn't last as long, there's a higher chance you get acne because dirt tend to stick to your skin because of the oil, you don't look "fresh" after just a few hours because your face looks shiny already. I could go on and on about this because I've dealt with this issue ever since I hit puberty. The thing that makes me feel better is convincing myself that I won't get wrinkles faster than those with drier skin (provided that I make sure I have proper skin care). Still, I try to find ways to prolong the time that my face looks like a disco ball.

One of the things I do is find the right product for my skin type. I look for skincare that addresses my skin concerns and makeup that doesn't add more oil to my face (like if it's water-based, I think that's better, but I still have to try it first. Not every product like it works on me). Another thing that I do is top off my makeup with powder. I find that it prolongs the time it takes for my skin to get all shiny.

The current product I'm using is...

Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder
It's PhP 260.00. Bought mine from Althea.

I bought it because I've been seeing different bloggers raving about this product. It also doesn't hurt that it's very affordable. Plus, I've been loving quite a number of products from the brand innisfree.

Before I go on with my short review, here's the product description from the website:

What it is
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. 
Date manufactured / Shelf life after initial opening
use within 36 months

Errr... I think they should edit their description from the website. haha! But I guess you get the point by checking the key words in it. :P

To be honest, I thought that it was so affordable at PhP 260, thinking that the size would be like that of the Palgantong Theatrical powder. When my order arrived, I was disappointed that it was smaller... like half of it. 5g. But still, I would consider it fairly priced. 

It's in a tub. There's a division between the powder and where you place your applicator.

The division has tiny holes so you get to control the amount you dispense.

The powder is very fine... like cornstarch! It glides smoothly on skin and it feels soft when touched. 

It has a translucent effect. You may worry that it would leave a white cast, but it doesn't.

It just makes your skin matte! At first I find my skin looking too matte but just wait for it to set and the overall finish would look natural.

Some say that the mint properties give a cooling sensation, well, I don't feel that. It just feels like the regular dry powder for me. 

I use it as a finishing powder after I put on my liquid foundation or BB cream. I apply it using a brush because I find the puff that comes with it more time consuming to use. It also moves and absorbs some of my foundation and concealer so I'd rather use a brush.

It works great when you want to set your makeup and give your look a matte finish. It also gives a softer look, like the lines and pores are smaller. But does it control oil?

Here's me without blotting after an 8-hour work day. Still shiny as ever. 

To be honest, I don't see much difference. My face starts to get shiny after three to four hours, just as when I use other translucent powder. 

So to summarize, I think it's a good product. It's effective in giving a matte finish. It sets makeup nicely. It feels and makes your skin look soft and smooth. It didn't irritate my skin. Finally, it's somewhat affordable. I don't think I have anything bad to say about it except that I would have love a bigger-sized product.

But would I say that it's the best? No. I've tried others that I like more BUT if I consider the price, then I would say it's one of the better ones at this price range.

And those are my thoughts on the Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder. I hope this was helpful.
