Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder Review + Swatch + Price
Here's a review on Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder.
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available in all Etude House boutiques
I did a review on Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder before and I loved it; unfortunately, it's not available here and I've been meaning to find an alternative; at long last, I found one in Etude House Drying Powder, an affordable, good setting powder that controls oil, helps prevent breakouts, and gives a soft, matte makeup finish that can rival not only Innisfree's, but some pricey setting powders to boot!
ETUDE HOUSE ZERO SEBUM DRYING POWDER IN DETAIL
This finishing powder is the final step in the brand's Zero Sebum range. It contains 80% mineral powder that helps wipe away oil and dry up acne- causing excess sebum on the surface. Features Cotton Extract that helps protect skin, Sugar Polymer from Plankton extract that helps remove excess oil, and Sebum Control Mix, a combination of fermented bean, willow, cinnamon, oregano, pine, portulaca oleracea, and gold to help with sebum troubles.
Product comes with a micro fiber puff. I prefer using a fluffy brush with this one as it tends to deliver a hint of white cast if not dispersed evenly.
The powder is finely milled and has a dry texture; it is comparable to the texture of HD powders. It yields a matte look and feel, but doesn't make skin look and feel dry, plus it feels airy on the skin to boot. It has a light Eucalyptus scent. Due to its fine texture, however, it tends to scatter and enter the nostrils when you dust it on your face so this is something to consider when you have asthma.

This powder can be used as a setting and blotting powder, depends on your preference. I prefer using it to set foundation because of its loose nature; too messy to be used an on-the-go blotting powder. The white cast that this product gives is very minimal and can be easily corrected by a bronzer or contouring powder.
I like that this powder sets my powder immediately and keeps me oil- free for about 3 hours before I retouch my T-Zone. It keeps makeup intact for the rest of the day. Initially, I thought that this is supposed to dry up pimples; I have not observed such effect, but I feel that it helps in keeping my skin breakout free due to its ingredients.
I'd repurchase this powder for daily use; it's good, inexpensive, and works really well on oily and combination oily-normal skin types! If you've been meaning to try Innisfree's No Sebum powder as well, this is a good alternative.
