Along with my recent Memebox haul, I also ordered the Oil Free Box, as there were a couple of products in here that I was really interested in, plus the whole box looks solid! Thankfully, this isn’t sold out, so I can unbox this for you if you are interested in purchasing it.
Transform your T-zone into an oil-free zone! From drying powders and cooling cream to pore-tightening masks, these sebum-zapping scores will turn your gross grease into a glam glow. Because sometimes, blotting just doesn’t cut it.
Leaders 2 Step Double Effect Pore Tightening Mask This mask has a V-line shape, which means it will lift up your skin (or as best as a facial sheet mask can do) and also helps control excess oil, reduce the appearance of pores, due to the ingredient keratin. It has caffeine, which helps reduce puffiness, by stimulating and improving blood circulation. Panax Ginseng is used in anti-aging skin care products, as it is can stimulate the skin and activate the blood flow, which will increase toning and production of new skin cells. It also has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, due to natural carbohydrate called saponin, and will help reverse damage caused by free radicals, such as hyper-pigmentation and also combat free radicals to prevent new skin damage of fine lines and wrinkles. Ginseng detoxes your skin and leaves it radiant and glowing. Applied topically, it helps stimulate collagen production to promote cellular renewal. Its herbal properties and usage dates back over 5,000 years. This mask is perfect for those who have oily skin, large pores and/or loss of elasticity. RV $6.00
Directions: After cleansing and toning, attach the upper mask to face. Align the center part of the lower mask with the center of your chin and pull the ends of the mask up to attach to ears. Relax for 20 minutes, then remove. Gently pat in remaining essence until fully absorbed.

A’Pieu Rilakkuma Mud Cleansing Foam This has such a CUTE design!! Rilakkuma is a very popular character in Japan and his name literally means relax bear. I am not sure yet what the pH level of this foam is, but I am interesting in trying a mud-to-foam cleanser ~ I have used GlamGlow’s mud-to-foam cleansers in the past and really liked them. This limited edition Mud Cleansing Foam has deep sea mud (50,00ppm), lime extracts and chestnut shell powder to help detox, deep clean and act as an astringent to tighten your pores.

Etude House Zero Sebum Drying Powder I love Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder, so I am interested in seeing how this product will compare. This has 80% mineral powder, as well as fermented soy, willow, cinnamon, portulaca oleracea to help keep your facial oil under control and matte. I do not pick up any scent with this and it has the micro fine powder that I come to expect from a setting powder. It is white, but once applied, it is translucent on your skin, so this is very friendly for all skin tones. One word of caution: before removing the plastic sticker that covers the holes, remove the plastic cap that it is attached to out of the container. It is so loosely fitted, that if you just pull up on the sticker, the cap comes zinging out and powder is everywhere. Lots of fun for the whole family!! Full Size 6g RV $8.50

Sebum control powder contained to remove unnecessary excess sebum efficiently. 80% of Mineral Powder – soft, elastic, and in various shapes, contained to deliver clear and natural luminosity on face.

Manyo Factory Galactomyces T-Serum Pore & Sebum Control This, along with the mineral powder and mud cleanser, were the main reasons why I got this box. I love Manyo Factory products and am really excited to add this to my routine. I will be doing a full review on this product. This serum is a weird beige-y color with a light citrus scent. It is more of an emulsion to me than a serum ~ it has clay, tannin and peppermint to help absorb excess oil and act as an astringent, while galactomyces, my yeasty friend, will make your skin brighter and clearer. Made from 99% natural ingredients, I am hoping this will help control my oil and pores! This is already in my bathroom cabinet to be used in my daily routine. Full Size 30mL RV $25.00

Smaller pores also prevent dirt from getting trapped in therefore minimizing possibilities of acne and blackheads.
Directions: After cleansing and toning, dispense 2 to 3 pumps of the serum and apply evenly onto areas prone to enlarged pores and blackheads. Pat lightly for better absorption.
