Picked this up in store after seeing so many good reviews on this. I love this powder because my skin is extremely dry in the winter, but my t zone is always oily after a few hours. This powder both minimizes oil and hides visible pores yet doesn't break me out nor makes me look all caked up. The powder is pure white but somehow blends really well with your skin, BUT you really do have to blend it well or else you'd be left with visible white spots. The only thing I don't like about this is the packaging because its really hard to clean the sponge if you do frequent touch ups with your makeup as it will stain the sponge and that's a sure way to create a breeding ground of bacteria for breakouts. I ended up buying a few of the extra sponges at Innisfree that fit the packaging, and now I understand why they sell those separately.
I have the mineral powder right now and I'm quite happy with it. It doesn't accentuate my dry patches, it mattifies my skin and has a good oil control. I have a combination skin, and this works great controlling oil.
As much as I want to love this, I just couldn't. My skin is combination with dry patches on my cheeks. I was putting this on my forehead and nose - where I got oily the most. It is good, it does mattify my oily skin immediately, but after some time my skin is dry and flaking. It took me almost a month for my skin to be normal again. Nothing changed just this powder, hence only two stars for me. But actually for a 10 bucks powder, this is really good.
- nice packaging
- doesnt break me out at all (i have sensitive skin)
- absorbs oil instantly
- small and suitable for travelling
- has a white cast
- oil seeps through my face after an hour or two
- hard to clean the sponge
I don't know how i would survive my oily face& hair days w/o this. I ordered mine through the official innisfreeworld website and i think it was a bit cheaper than ebay.
I use mine on my face as well as on my hair when I'm in a hurry and don't have time to shower. It works just like dry shampoo and it does wonders. A little touch gives you a fresher and volumous hair. but you have to really be careful not to over do it..
When used on the face, it absorbs oil and gives your face a nice, light finish. I've used the NARS loose powder and loved it as well. But considering the price. This one is a steal.
only wish is that they come in a larger size.
Love it!! I have a really oily T-zone (mine is always the oiliest amongst my friends- blotting paper comparison) and this helps me to control *the shine*.
My aunt introduced it to my mum, who introduced it to me, and we are all using it now lol. Before that, we were all using another powder (forgot the name of the brand) and it was given to us by our facial beautician. That was great too but we realised that Innisfree's powder is much finer and its faster to pat onto our skin with the little powder puff. it has a nice minty smell too and the packaging is cute!
Bought it in Korea 1.5 years back. I'm going back around this mid july so I'll definitely stock up on this!
this is one of the few makeup products i will stand by. i kept hearing good things about this stuff, so i decided to finally try it. i ordered some from korea and, though it took a while to get here, it was definitely worth the wait.
i have combination skin and a very oily t-zone and a problem i have with foundations is that they get really oily and slide right off my face after a mere hour. thanks to this lovely product, this is a problem i don't have anymore. this stuff is literally a godsend. no shine, no grease, and everything stays in place perfectly. since i have sensitive skin i was somewhat prepared for a bad reaction to it due to its scent (scented products always give me trouble) but this stuff was fine! i love it! i will keep buying it. this is literally the only powder you need. it tops everything off and it does it perfectly. it's also transparent. i hesitated at first since i thought it might be too light for my skin, but it goes on invisibly. this stuff literally lasts all day. i went out a while ago and spent the night dancing and sweaty and this miracle powder kept my face in place all night! it's very inexpensive, too.
Been using this product for 2 years now and it is my favourite anti shine powder I have tried. Truthfully I haven't tried a lot of anti shine pressed powders mainly due to the expensive prices of many of them, but for the price of this product and it's quality you really can't beat it. This product does it's job, removes shine from your face and keeps it matte while also working as a light finisher. However the only negative thing I can say about this product is that it can make you face look cakey and you have to reapply it more than once. I have combination skin, dry around my cheeks and jaw line but a tad oily and very shiny around my nose area (my problem area) and forehead. I also live in Vancouver with a mild climate with a lot of humidity so that is probably a factor too. I believe it works best in drier to mildly humid climates personally. But in a normal day I have to reapply this product 3-4 times and around the 2-3rd time it gets cakey. I don't know if it's because my skin has become too used to this product that the effects arnt working as effectively as it should but as mentioned earlier you can't really complain too much considering this product still works, sells for $12-13 online and has mostly all natural ingredients in it. If you are looking for a product that won't hurt your budget, removes shine, gives a matte finish, works on all skin types and is made without harsh ingredients than you will really enjoy this. All in all I will continue to purchase it until I find something that can compare to this price wise and works better.
Even I have dry skin you can't tell when I'm wearing it. Use it mostly on my oily lids.
I love both version of this product! I use the loose powder at home for setting my makeup and I always have the compact pact in my bag for quick touch ups during the day!
It really prevents my skin from getting oily for at least 4hrs after applying my makeup and when y T-zone starts getting oily I just correct with a little of the compact pact! After I bought these powders I got rid of my blotting papers(which I hate), I only have to reapply once or twice during the day to prevent my face from looking oily. I use Lioele triple the solution BB cream as makeup base and the InnisFree no sebum powder to set and my makeup looks flawless for at least 12hrs!!!
The powder is transparent and it doesn't create a white cast if used properly, the scent is fresh and pleasant and the compact pact package is convenient for having it in my purse(the pattern on the powder is pretty cute as well)!
The only cons is that it can be slightly drying if too much is applied, to prevent this I always carry a moisturizing mist(The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist works for me!) in case of drying!
I think the price is pretty low for the quality of the powder. I buy mine at BeautynetKorea(they always provide a few saples) for around 10USD for the compact pact and around 7USD for the loose one, but it's also available on eBay from various sellers!
Thanks InnisFree for this amazing powder =3
