Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:
1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡
2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.
3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.
That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy
Is this the best setting powder ever for oily skin? Possibly. Ditch your blotting papers and try this HG! The No Sebum Mineral Powder from innisfree is a loose, translucent powder formulated with natural minerals from the famed Jeju island in Korea and mint to naturally control your skin’s sebum levels. Despite looking white in the pot, it finishes almost clear on contact with your skin, leaving a lovely, soft focus, airbrushed finish. It's perfect in front of the camera and for general, everyday wear. Best of all, it can last for more than 8 hours - it works full time!
* Note it can have an ashy finish on very dark skin tones. The best way for darker skin tones to use this product is after moisturizing, and before using foundation (rather than as a finisher).
If your skin is prone to getting oily throughout the day, over makeup or in general, then this product is perfect for you!
In the last step of your skincare routine, softly apply on the entire facial surface or areas with excess sebum (oil) using the puff. It may be applied to set the make up or whenever skin gets oily.
Precautions: Stop using the product immediately and consult a dermatologist when redness, swelling, or other skin irritations occur, and consult a physician. Avoid applying the product on open wounds or skin inflammation. Keep away from direct sunlight and out of reach of infants and children.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder without makeup?
While it is traditionally a setting powder, the innisfree No Sebum Mineral Power can be used without makeup. That's how versatile this nifty little product is - in fact, it is excellent for shine control on an oily T-Zone. Just pat it on after your moisturizer and you're ready to go. Use it in place of blotting papers..
How good is the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder?
The simple reason why innisfree's No Sebum Mineral Powder is popular is because it's dang good! It's probably the best setting powder we've come across for fair skin. For tan skin however, it's not as great, leaving a bit of an ashy finish. On deep skin tones, it's a no go. So, it loses points for inclusivity, but its performance on fair skin is unmatched.
Is Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder a setting powder?
innisfree's No-Sebum Mineral Powder is a setting powder - but you can also use it as a substitute for blotting papers or simply to freshen up your makeup during the day.
Does Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder have flashback?
Unfortunately, our roadtest of innisfree's No Sebum Mineral Powder shows that it does have some flashback - particularly in close-up shots (less so from further away). If you're an expert blender, it'll matter less. But if you've just used it on your T-Zone or simply smack it on without blending (guilty), it'll show up in pics.
Does Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder cause acne?
There is no reason why innisfree's No Sebum Mineral Powder should cause acne. Its ingredients list is non-comedogenic. It all boils down to the user and how your individual skin feels, of course. Applying it on clean skin with clean puffs will make a difference, while reapplying during the day after your skin has produced sweat and sebum will increase clogging risk with any makeup product.
