Product Review: Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Pact

Hey cuties! If you have oily skin, then you know my daily struggle with sebum. Isn't that just a gross word? Sebum. It doesn't sound nice, like zit or phlegm. Anyway, I'm always up to trying something that might control the oil on my skin. Also, this was my very first purchase from Innisfree. So let's get to it!

First of all, the packaging came in this Eco-friendly box. That made me instantly like Innisfree more because I'm a bit of a tree hugger. Inside, there is a small sponge you can use and a plastic shield to separate the sponge from the product. I'm always worried what kind of germs sponges hold and if it's infesting my makeup. The plastic cover is nice, but I bet most people will loose it within a week.

The product is supposed to be translucent, but I found that it left a white cast of my skin. I definitely do not need to be any whiter so that was a big downside. I even had my friend try it and she said the same thing. But then again, we were using the sponge. If you use a brush, I think you will be fine.

The oil control does what it's supposed to do. It keeps my skin matte longer than the other powder that've tried. I would say that it gave me 3-4 hours without shine. For my skin, that's pretty impressive.

I originally wanted the No-Sebum mineral pact insead of the mineral powder because I wanted something to chuck into my purse for touch ups. During school, I find that I only need to reapply this once, maybe twice on a bad day.

-Good oil control
-Suitable for all skin tones
-Easy to travel with

-Can leave a white cast

As always, let me know if you've tried this product and what you thought! Also, how has your week been going? I was gone studying. :( So sad to leave the world of blogging, even for a little bit. Tell me in the comments section! XD
