It already feels like summer here, don’t know if it’s official but we’re seriously getting a lot of humidity and heat. I’m not a fan of heat and humidity. I sweat and my sebum production is quadrupled what it is during the cold months. It’s not cool either when there’s no air conditioner at work and I’ve got sweaty kids in the classroom and sweaty issues myself.
I’ve been in review mode in case you haven’t noticed and I’ve been popping them out quite fast but don’t expect this momentum to continue because sooner or later I’m going to run out of things to review (Ack!).
I picked up the No-Sebum Mineral Powder mostly out of curiosity and because I was tired of blotting my face every other minute. I was in luck when I purchased this because I got two for the price of one. I think you can get buy one and get the second free for the entire month of June. Not sure if the sale applies to all Innisfree shops internationally but if you’re here in Korea and are interested in this product, you can grab two for just 6,000 won (50% off).
Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder
Here’s the good:
– pleasant smell (this can easily be a con for some for those with a sensitive nose)
– keeps me matte for 3-4 hours at best
– small and travel friendly
– no parabens, no talc, no artificial coloring, animal ingredients, no mineral oil, fragrance free
– leaves my skin extremely smooth
And the bad:
If I were to make a list of June favorites, this would easily make top 3. Not only does it absorb oil but it really does leave my skin smooth. If you’re worried about the powder leaving a white cast, it actually doesn’t. Just don’t pat on an excessive amount. If you apply too much, you might have that problem so please use it sparingly.
As per Innisfree, you can use this:
1) as a finishing powder
2) as a makeup fixer
3) to soften and brighten your skin
4) in place of oil blotting sheets
5) as an eye primer
6) for oil control on hair
If you’ve got oily problems like me, I sympathize. Give this powder a try. Remember you can currently purchase two for the price of one if you’re currently in Korea. Please check with your local Innisfree store!
