I never fail to mention here in my blog how oily my skin is. It’s like a daily battle that I have to go through. Although, as they say, those who have oily skin should be thankful since skin won’t age fast. This is why I learned to accept and love my skin. Besides, there are a lot of products that can help control oil. Unfortunately, not all are really effective. Recently, I saw this Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder. I thought of giving it a shot. Did it work? Read on my Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder Review below.

Tips on Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder

  • Use the cap to sprinkle some loose powder you’re going to use. Be mindful of the amount since it will be hard to return any excess powder in the container.


  • Use the puff to get a small amount of product and dab on the face.
  • After patting the product on the face, use a fluffy face brush to blend the powder.
  • It’s a perfect product to set your liquid or cream foundation or BB cream.
  • If you don’t have makeup on, you can use it as is to control shine.
  • It can be used for touchups to absorb oil and freshen up.
  • If you have combination skin, concentrate on your t-zone.

Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder Verdict

Overall, I highly recommend Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder if you have oily or combination skin. For someone who has very oily skin, I still need a midday touch up but I can delay it for a few hours since it really does a great job in keeping oil at bay. I also love how it leaves my skin silky and velvety smooth. It’s my way to check if I’m starting to oil up. If I pat my fingers on my face and skin doesn’t feel velvety, it means oil has started to make an appearance. As for the white cast, it is almost unnoticeable, but for darker skin tones, I would suggest trying the product in boutiques first if it could easily be fixed with proper blending.
