As a beauty enthusiast, (or simply the “kuripot” girl in me) the moment I see an affordable option for my skincare or makeup, I feel the need to try it immediately.
The rise of K-Beauty or J-Beauty cheap finds in the market are booming in the Philippines now. Stores like Daiso, Miniso and Mumuso are expanding like crazy and can be found in most Ayala Malls & SM Stores now. Aside from cute stuff and other anik-anik, these stores have skincare and make-up options that are available for as low as P99. Some, even cheaper.
In this post, we will be reviewing this affordable Oil Control Spray by Mumuso.
I purchased this in The Ayala Malls The 30th Mumuso Branch for only PHP149.
It contains 120ml of product in a spray can.
Ingredients are written in Korean. If you are allergic to certain cosmetic ingredients or if you have sensitive skin, it is best to do a little research before trying this. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
The claims of this product is very simple– to help in oil control. If you’re an oily skinned gal, this will help you keep the shine at bay.
Since this is supposed to keep you from oiling up during the day, you’re supposed to spritz this on your face before putting your makeup on. Let this dry for a few seconds or minutes, before proceeding to do your foundation.
I have dry combination skin. (Oily on the T-zone, dry on the cheek area.) On some days that parts of my face are not too dry, this Mumuso Oil Control Spray works amazing on its own even without a moisturizer. It may have oil-control properties, but it doesn’t dry your skin out. It has that cooling sensation once sprayed on your face. It feels as though your skin is being prepped from not feeling warm during the day. Not only does it help control the oil, it keeps your face feeling cool and fresh. It’s perfect for that warm Philippine weather.
Here’s a short breakdown of this oil control spray’s pros and cons.
- Affordable for P149.
- Readily available in Ayala Malls & SM Store Mumuso branches, etc.
- Sleek and nice packaging.
- Provides oil-control for up to 5 hours depending on your skin type.
- Provides a cooling sensation, helping you feel fresh underneath the makeup.
- Light fresh lemon scent.
- Did not break me out.
- Can be used to set your makeup as well. But is best used underneath.
- Hydrating even though it has oil-control properties.
- The one I bought has a defective spray can. It’s very hard to press and does not dispense the product properly.
- Does not prolong the wear of your makeup.
Overall, this Mumuso Oil Control Spray is an affordable yet good product. I will rate it a 4 out of 5 because it’s cheap and it delivers it’s claims quite well. There may be better oil-control sprays out there in the market, but for those who are just beginning to get into products like this, you will definitely appreciate this one. It’s very inexpensive and will probably last you about 5 months or more, depending on how you use it.
Will I re-purchase? Only if I don’t find any other oil control sprays that delivers better than this. But I would definitely recommend that you try this!
