Blog about Korean cosmetics, reviews and articles
I have a combination skin with oily t-zone, which loves to shine by lunchtime. My nose could get so dry that it flakes, or shine like an oily skillet. I’m (almost) 28, have freckles, and very fair skin. Naturally, I have pores, but without any big issues.
Recently I have started to experiment with tubed and cushioned BB creams, and they pretty much require a primer, otherwise they fall into the pores.
Ladies, this cream by Korean brand Innisfree is a real miracle.
I love it so much! A mix of powder, primer, and cream. It goes on like a dream – gets absorbed quickly, mattifies the skin, and makes it velvety soft. The face doesn’t shine all day! I work in an office part of a manufacturing plant. So I have AC all day, but I often have to venture out on the production floor, where it gets close to the 90s in the summer. And nothing melts! And nothing shines! It must be some sort of black magic 🙂
The cream controls sebum production and evens out skin’s texture. You can use it under powder (or without it at all) or under bb cream or any other makeup. If you use the cream before bed, it will regulate the oil/moisture balance of the skin.
It’s used instead of your regular cream (so, after cleansing, toner, serum, and essence). The scent is faint and minty, very pleasant. A tiny spatula is included. For me, a small “bead” is enough for the entire face. I use it all over, but it can also be used on just the oily parts. This doesn’t affect skin color, so won’t make you look pale.
Because this is Innisfree, the ingredients are mostly natural. Does not contain parabens.

What else should you know?
Get acquainted with other uses for No-sebum powder cream
1. Sebum care during the day or night
If the cream is used at night, then it will control the moisture/oil balance while you sleep. If used in the morning, it will control excess oiliness during the day

3. No-sebum powder and No-sebum cream
We highly recommend this combination for oily skin! Add no-sebum powder to no-sebum cream, mix them, and use them on your oiliest zones.
During the cream stage of your care, take a sufficient amount with the included spatula, and apply evenly either to the entire face or on the troubled oily zones.
