  • I was a super fan of Human Nature's Mineral Make-up line. I go out of my way to personally visit their store in Manila to get my beauty fix. However, I noticed that my most recent buy of their pressed powder in Orient Pearl has been different in the shade and consistency. The power was whiter (which is not in...

  • I've been a user of the Orient Pearl for more than 4 years now. While it is really bothersome that it cracks easily, I really do not mind because this is the only powder that never made me breakout. I am used to wearing light makeup and this is already it for me.. I've tried the expensive ones, the commercial...

  • Orient pearl din yung shade na gusto ko. But then yung last time na binili ko, parang nagbago talaga un effect. Di na nagbblend ng maayos yung color kasi masyadong light. Please bring back the former formula. Even yung previous scent nya nag iba [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Ma Russel! Thank you for purchasing our Orient Pearl Mineral Pressed Powder....

  • Before purchasing this, I read reviews first and saw that many complained about how it cracked easily. Still, I decided to buy it and just vowed to be extra careful. Unfortunately, no matter how careful I was, it still cracked. I never dropped it or handled it roughly. Someone suggested I use it as loose powder...

  • I have been using Orient Pearl for 2 years nonstop and have not used any powder since. It matches my yellow fair skin and controls my super oily skin. I love it so much that I have lived off the fact that this powder is fragile, can crack easily when dropped, and has somewhat flimsy packaging. That is why I...

  • I've tried this, the mineral foundation and loose powder. I like its matte finish the most. However it became messy to use. It started to crack and eventually became like loose powder. Also, please improve the puff. It gets all the powder. I suggest to just include the puff the same as with the mineral foundation and loose powder. Thanks....
    CHE (10/13/2016)

  • I am quite glad that the Orient Pearl is now shade lighter and fits the name better!!! The former shade is 2 times darker for my skin tone and the only reason I disliked it before. Now this is my perfect pressed powder has a soft focus effect, pores are less noticeable, controls shine with a light to...

  • Always LOVED the Orient Pearl shade for my skin. Really blends well and minimized breakouts. But lately, I got the Orient Pearl again but it was so much lighter so I gave that to someone else. So, I got the Island Shell shade instead and I must say, I'm pretty disappointed. It doesn't blend as well as the old...

She bought another compact and a refill from...

If it will, I might...

I checked it ngayon ngayon lang and surprisingly, nag-crack siya :(((( [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Angela!...
    Angela (08/07/2013)

  • I so like how this Mineral Powder effectively controls the oil minus the carcinogens of talc powder I used to apply before! Ideal for corrective makeup touch-ups! Using brush minimizes friction on the face, thus reducing chances of triggering pimples, so please do consider brushes instead of puffs. But overall, this is a great product....

  • Since I have sensitive skin, I always opt for make-up formulated without potentially toxic substances. I loved how finely milled this pressed powder was, and how close the Orient Pearl shade was to my skin tone. However, after around a month of using the product, I was surprised to find that it had disintegrated in its own compact! I was...

  • I bought my orient pearl mineral powder almost 3 weeks ago, and so far, no cracking.

Also, instead of using the sponge, I use a brush, which works well because the powder is not that compact. It's the same...

  • I have been quite a fan of mineral makeups so I giddily tried the pressed powder of HHN.

It performed much better in terms of oil control, and...

  • The coverage and the shade was perfect but the smell omg, i stopped using it because the smell bothered me and other people smelled it coming from my skin. When's the new formula coming out? It would be really nice if you added fragrance or make the dung smell go away :) [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi, Bea! Oh no! We’re sorry that’s...

  • When I first used the improved powder I was so contented because it was smoother and it looks more natural on my skin far better than the first one. After 2-3 times of using it, to my surprise, my make-up kit was a mess! The powder easily cracked though there was never a time that I drop it.I tried putting...

  • After using your hair and body products, I finally decided to try your makeup, starting with the powder. I was very hesitant because even mineral makeup have caused me breakouts before. I was also afraid I got the wrong color because I got the lightest but it blends with my skin well. I still haven't experienced a breakout with any...

  • i love HHN's mineral powder because it's really light & has a nice & natural coverage, aside from being 100% free from harmful chemicals. being morena, i chose as my first one the sand dollar shade, but it was kinda too yellowish for my skin tone. my second one, which suits me perfectly, is the island shell shade. i was...
    ghel (03/12/2012)

  • Content-wise, i love it and will continue to use it! Of the 4 powders that I have bought, all of it cracked. One arrived through courier cracked already when opened even though it was carefully bubble-wrapped, the others cracked few days later. Sad thing was that, cracked contents fell all over the place and part of it went to waste. Since...

  • I am a biiiig fan of human nature products because working in a hospital makes me very health conscious in everything that I put in my body.

  • Good day, I’m a loving user of your product since 2010. But then, there are products that made me unsatisfied and sad, your mineral pressed powder and mineral blush. I bought it last June 2011 somewhere in Los Banos, Laguna. Cracking was never an issue to me, my concerns are: it made my face broke out lots of...
    Madel (02/16/2012)

  • This is the best mineral powder I have used. This new formulation can cover minor blemishes without the uneven skin tone appearance. My skin tone is between Ivory and Fair and I use the Island Shell shade. The finish looks very natural on me. Since the first day I used this new formulation, I have instantly received numerous compliments about...

    Fill (02/07/2012)

    Mary Angelique (02/04/2012)

  • The new formulation of the mineral powder is a lot better compared to when I started using it 4th quarter of last year. It has better coverage and has a sheer and flawless finish. Also I noticed it mattifies the oiliness of my skin. It even stays longer now and just needed few retouches during the day. However, I noticed...
    Loree (02/03/2012)

  • I love the feel and effect of the powder on my skin. It blends perfectly to my skin tone. The only thing I don't like about this product, is that, it easily cracks. I have already bought 2 face powders in Island Shell tone thinking that the first one easily cracks because of the courier's mishandling. ...
    Emilie (01/29/2012)

  • orient pearl is sheer and light but yellowish for someone with very fair and pink undertone.. but i like it better than island pearl anyways.. but i wish you had something with fuller coverage for hiding the blemishes (or come up with a concealer maybe).. it did not cause breakouts.. id suggest also just a loose powder version so to...
    Denise (01/19/2012)

  • This powder does what it needs to do. The formulation is so sheer that both Island Shell and Sand Dollar blend in with my skin tone perfectly. It mattifies my face without being heavy and it doesn't give me allergies. Great for everyday use. I've also experienced some cracking after dropping it (oops), but this is a common problem with most...
    Ella (01/08/2012)

  • The coverage is good since it covers my blemishes without the i-have-makeup-on-my-face look. However, the powder cracks, it goes everywhere even when the compact is closed. Whenever I open it, bits of powder are scattered. Aside from that, neither Orient Pearl nor Island Shell suits my skin tone. Please make a new shade somewhere in between Orient pearl and Island...
    Cara (01/06/2012)

    Lian (12/18/2011)

    Anab (12/04/2011)

  • I never have used up an entire pressed powder before. I have always been a loose powder fan, until I heard about the dangers of talc. The heavy feel and the caky look of pressed powders always put me off. But your pressed powder is as light as loose baby powder. And it mattifies my oily...
    Michelle (11/25/2011)

  • I agree with what many others have mentioned. The quality of the mineral powder itself is excellent -- very light and lets your skin breathe without clogging your pores; natural coverage which lasts long without needing to reapply often; most of all, it's all natural and safe! Wonderful product indeed! However, I also am very disappointed because it easily...
    Becca (11/22/2011)

  • I love the effect of the powder on my skin. It doesn't feel thick or heavy like other pressed powder and Island Shell complements my skin tone. The only downside to the product is that it easily cracks making the compact messy over time. I guess its better if you make a loose mineral powder instead and improve the packaging...
    aena (11/18/2011)

  • I super love this mineral powder. This is the most affordable mineral powder ive ever see. Island Shell is also perfect for my skintone. The only thing i don't like is that the pressed poweder is too soft. It always cracks. I hope you can improve the packaging or maybe you can also have a loose powder instead. Apart from...
    Norie (11/13/2011)

  • The external packaging (box) looked great, the compact was okay - it seemed too generic/shiny a plastic to look natural. Upon opening, the paper liner between the sponge and powder seemed like it was a circle cut out manually from onion skin paper - it was somewhat ragged and uneven - and this definitely was a downer in terms...
    Arleen (11/07/2011)

  • I love this product! It feels light on the skin and leaves a soft matte finish. Orient pearl is the perfect shade for my mestiza complexion. I don't detect any scent or maybe it's too faint for me to notice. I hope HHN makes one with sunscreen in the future. This is one product I can't live without....

The moment I laid eyes on it being darker than usual brown I knew I found the right shade. You nailed Filipina color right on...
    Ria (10/24/2011)

  • Orient Pearl made me break out. Island Shell did not. I first bought the Island Shell shade, with spectacular results - albeit a tad too dark. It was beautifully mattifying and super-natural that my friends thought I got a slight tan. So I resolved to go for the lightest shade Orient Pearl. It was slightly heavier and cakier than Island Shell....
    Fidelle (10/18/2011)

  • I just got my Orient Light pressed powder just now and when I tried it, I have to admit it's the most gentle pressed powder I've ever tried. As a student, I always use powder that contains talc and I've always been waiting to afford this pressed powder. I say that I never regret anything. It's cheaper than other powders and...

    Lorie (10/01/2011)

  • I use Island Shell for the fair-skinned, which suits my not-dark, not-tisay complexion. I get good, smooth coverage out of it. Mine cracked too, but not until I was more than 75% through it. Can you produce this in loose powder form? Cracking won't be a problem then! Also you won't need the disposable applicators. Users just need to have their own...
    Trish (09/23/2011)

  • I've been on the lookout for a foundation that I can use everyday- I was looking for two qualities: 1. light so that it doesn't clog my pores or look cakey 2. absorbs oil and covers my skin imperfections I'm happy to say I've found the ONE in Love Minerals Pressed Powder Foundation! :) I have light skin with yellow undertones and...
    Mia (09/18/2011)

  • I love that this foundation applies smoothly, doesn't cake, & prevents my face from being oily throughout the day. I rarely have to re-apply (except on my T-zone which tends to become really oily on hot & humid days but I usually just have to blot). I have no problem with the scent, I actually like that it's fragrance free....

  • This has been the only pressed powder foundation that I didn't develop acne flare-ups. I am now nearing to buy another Sand Dollar shade. I use sunblock before I apply the powder and I've noticed that too didn't cause flare-ups which is good. Despite it being able to do light coverage, it is able to even out uneven...

  • Tiffany (03/02/2017)

    I was a super fan of Human Nature's Mineral Make-up line. I go out of my way to personally visit their store in Manila to get my beauty fix. However, I noticed that my most recent buy of their pressed powder in Orient Pearl has been different in the shade and consistency. The power was whiter (which is not in the good way) and is chalky compared to their previous version, which blended seamlessly into my skin. I have not hit pan yet, but I don't think I'll continue using it. It reminds me of Avon pressed powders, but HN's is a lot pricier. It feels like I did not get my money's worth.

  • Layne (02/22/2017)

    I've been a user of the Orient Pearl for more than 4 years now. While it is really bothersome that it cracks easily, I really do not mind because this is the only powder that never made me breakout. I am used to wearing light makeup and this is already it for me.. I've tried the expensive ones, the commercial brands that have high reviews but they did not fit my skin very well. The only thing I noticed recently is the consistency of the shades. I have always purchased orient pearl, then I once re-purchased and got a very light color which I could not return because I have already put it on before noticing (im one of the many mommies who puts on makeup without really looking at my face because I do not have enough time to do so, just a glance and that's it!) So I went again to Beauty Bar to get another refill and got the shade I am used to. Fortunately, since I do not go out that often anymore, my fair skin got more fairer (or paler hah!) so mixing the darker shade with the lighter shade created a better result. I apply the darker shade orient pearl first after my bbcream then top it off with the lighter one. The shade looked more natural to me. The downside is that what if I cannot get those shades anymore. So I really hope you'd be more consistent with the shades and create more shades to fit various skin colors. I wouldn't complain anymore that it cracks easily, bacause I've had experiences that I got to the bottom of the container without it breaking and if it would mean that you'd have to place harmful additives for it to just be very sturdy then no thanks. Just the shade consistency please. Thanks! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Layne! We're so glad that you liked our Orient Pearl Mineral Pressed Powder. We're sorry about your experience in the inconsistency of shades. In may 2016, we launched a new and improved lighter shade of Orient Pearl to cater to the demand of users who have been requesting a shade adjustment--data that our panel results have yielded. Nevertheless, we truly appreciate your feedback and we will definitely consider it for the future development of our Mineral Makeup line. Thank you so much!]
  • Ma Russel (01/23/2017)

  • Chia (12/15/2016)

    Before purchasing this, I read reviews first and saw that many complained about how it cracked easily. Still, I decided to buy it and just vowed to be extra careful. Unfortunately, no matter how careful I was, it still cracked. I never dropped it or handled it roughly. Someone suggested I use it as loose powder instead. That would have been the perfect solution, but the compact isn't meant to contain loose powder, so it left my bag messy. I had to place the compact inside a resealable plastic bag just so it wouldn't leave a mess. The only upside is that it did keep oiliness at bay. I started using HN products in August this year, and this is the first (and I hope only) product I am not repurchasing. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Chia! Thank you for purchasing our Mineral Pressed Powder. We're sorry about your experience and we'd love to help you in any way that we can. Kindly note that our Mineral Pressed Powder does not contain any synthetic hardener which is why it tends to break faster than other pressed powder options available in the market. Nevertheless, we will take your feedback into consideration as we continuously find ways to develop the product.

  • Ariane (10/22/2016)

    I have been using Orient Pearl for 2 years nonstop and have not used any powder since. It matches my yellow fair skin and controls my super oily skin. I love it so much that I have lived off the fact that this powder is fragile, can crack easily when dropped, and has somewhat flimsy packaging. That is why I was so sad and disappointed when they changed the shade and formulation! Please bring back the former shade of Orient Pearl, even if it will be under a new shade name. :( I believe that many Filipinas have yellow fair skin, but not as light as the new Orient Pearl shade. The new shade is too light on me but I cannot use Island Shell since it has pink undertones and I cannot use Sand Dollar even if it has yellow undertones since it is too dark for me. I also noticed that the formulation has been changed and I also hope you bring it back :( I definitely experienced the difference in on the oil control. I have extremely oily skin and the previous formulation does not even require blotting for me, unlike the new one which I observed did not control my oiliness as good as before. I love HHN products but please bring back the former shade and formulation please :( [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Ariane! Thank you for purchasing our Orient Pearl Mineral Pressed Powder. The launch of new Orient Pearl was preceded by the result of panel tests where users liked the lighter shade of the pressed powder.

  • CHE (10/13/2016)

    I've tried this, the mineral foundation and loose powder. I like its matte finish the most. However it became messy to use. It started to crack and eventually became like loose powder.

  • Rain (10/06/2016)

    I am quite glad that the Orient Pearl is now shade lighter and fits the name better!!! The former shade is 2 times darker for my skin tone and the only reason I disliked it before. Now this is my perfect pressed powder has a soft focus effect, pores are less noticeable, controls shine with a light to medium coverage. I already restock several refills PLEASE don't discontinue this lighter shade of Orient Pearl! What can be improved is that I wish it won't crack easily. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Rain!

Is it true that I should always have an 800 peso worth every month? I mean what if hnd umabot s 800 pesos ung umorder. Pro s sumnod n buwan is ns 1plus nmn...I jusy wanted to clarify things out.

  • Jessica Mei (09/04/2016)

    Always LOVED the Orient Pearl shade for my skin. Really blends well and minimized breakouts. But lately, I got the Orient Pearl again but it was so much lighter so I gave that to someone else. So, I got the Island Shell shade instead and I must say, I'm pretty disappointed. It doesn't blend as well as the old formulation, and the shimmer just makes it look unnatural on skin. Heart breaking lalo na't ang ganda ng experience ko dati. I hope you can bring back the blend and natural look of the powder. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Jessica Mei!

  • Tiffany (07/16/2016)

    I am in love with your makeup line, HHN! Whenever my husband and I goes to the mall and tells me, "O bili ka na ng makeup mo." I go like, "Naah. Sa Human Nature na lang." We really go out of our route to go to your physical store in Bambang, Manila to get my makeup fix. I always buy this product because it doesn't feel heavy at all. I get all sweaty at work but I still look fresh anyway because of this pressed powder. This is the manna of beauty junkies like me. However, there is just one con: it cracks easily, hence the 3 stars. :( I have never hit pan with these babies ever since I bought them because they always break inside my bag and get my stuff covered in powder. :( My toddler likes to mess around with my kikay bag, so I wish this product would be much more resilient to cracks.

    I love the soft focus effect specially on my cheek and nose are that looks poreless!! When I apply this it is mattifying but still not looking powdery and dry instead my skin appears to be super smooth & hydrated. I have oily skin this powder controls the shine for hours! I really really wanted to love this but sadly the lightest shade orient pearl is too dark on me so I just gave it 3 hearts!! It is a pity because of all the pressed powder that I have tried this is the best for my skin type and did not break me out. Please HHN create a shade lighter than Orient Pearl so I can use it everyday and will match my skintone perfectly! I hope it will be soon I beg you! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Skylarain!

    I just bought one yesterday and I honestly liked it. The oriental pearl perfectly matched my skin however when my little neice borrowed it from me to check herself on the mirror it fell off her hand and boom the carpet was covered with powder, I even tried to pick up a few pieces but it's useless because nadudurog sila. I hope there's a way you can harden the powder without using any harmful chemical. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Che! We're so glad you love our Orient Pearl Mineral Pressed Powder! We're very sorry to hear that it cracked. Because our pressed powder is 100% natural, the natural binders we use may not be as strong as chemical binders; however, they are definitely safer, healthier, and better for your skin than those synthetic foundations! Rest assured we are currently researching natural makeup binders that are as strong as chemical binders, minus the health risks. In the meantime, we'd like to help you out so that you can continue to enjoy our natural makeup. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you soon :) Thank you so much!]
  • Dara (08/13/2015)

    Last year, I purchased Orient Pearl but it's still dark for my skin tone, so I gave it to a friend instead. She was very impressed with the product because her skin got better after suffering from acne for several years. She doesn't have any breakouts ever since she started using it. She bought another compact and a refill from me!
  • Bernadeth Apple (03/18/2015)

    I love that all HHN powder products are talc-free. The pressed powder is great for quick touch ups. Hope you can come up with luminizers/highlighters or any shimmery powder :)
  • edlyn (02/18/2015)

    I tried using the orient pearl shade however it did not match my skin tone. Hoping you could a much lighter shade than this. But your face care products are great. It is my third time purchasing different products from you. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi edlyn! Thank you for your feedback. We'll definitely take your request for a lighter shade into consideration :) Thank you so much for your support!]
  • Ella (02/13/2015)

    It really is a great product, not scented and I also noticed that my face never gets oily for the entire shift at work thus it cracks and the metal plate (if that's how you call it) falls off easily though I know that its purpose is for the refill but it's just too loosed. Thanks! I super love your products though. :) [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Ella! We're sorry to hear about your cracked powder. Cracking is a problem faced by all powder/foundation manufacturers, most especially a natural makeup manufacturer like us because we do not use synthetic binders; however, you can be sure that you're getting the safest and most genuinely natural makeup available :) Our powder refills, on the other hand, should fit snugly into our compacts. We'd like to look into your experience and help you out in any way we can. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you very soon :) Thank you!]
  • Mel (02/06/2015)

    I keep this in my makeup kit in my handbag for quick touch ups. Great product!
  • Dyan (02/03/2015)

    Dear HHN! Can you please bring back the BORACAY BRONZE shade please please :( :( :( .......... that shade is perfect for contouring (a lot better than Toffee Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation ) .... very sad when I learned that you removed that shade in your selection. :( [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Dyan! Thank you for your feedback. If you're looking for a good shade for contouring, you might want to try out our Perfect Glow Mineral Blush in Sun-Kissed and then top it off with our Pacific Shimmer shade for extra glow. Hope this helps!]
  • janice (01/18/2015)

    Hi hnn! I ordered the lightest shade orient pearl but it didnt suit my chinese complexion and dries out my skin. Im really disappointed with this product and hope to have a replacement for this. Im really looking for a make up with natural ingredients. Please find product that will suit my skin type which is normal to oily skin(tzone only). God bless hhn! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi janice! We're currently working to expand our shade range :) In the meantime, we would be happy to offer you a free exchange because we want you to have the best experience with our products. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you very soon to help you find the products that work for you :) Thank you!]
  • Erika (01/01/2015)

    I have really bad acne and oily skin so I thought of trying out mineral makeup for my foundation. I love that not only are all Human Heart Nature products natural, but they are also cruelty-free (as I only use cosmetics that have not been tested on animals). I also usually have a really hard time finding foundations that match my skin tone. That's why I was really surprised to find that Island Shell is such a good match for my color. The powder also did a good job at keeping me matte for most of the day and it didn't feel or look cakey one bit. The only downside is, much like what some of the other reviews seem to say, my powder cracked really bad :( To top it all off, my niece dropped my makeup bag and it seemed to have broken it apart even more. I can't even use the product anymore. If it weren't for that issue, this powder would have definitely been my holy grail pressed powder. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Erika! We're sorry to hear about your cracked powder. Cracking is aproblem faced by all powder manufacturers, more so a 100% natural one like ours because we do not use any synthetic hardeners. However unlike other brands, you can be sure that you're getting only the safest, most genuinely natural makeup available. We'd like to make it up to you and offer you a free replacement for your powder. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you soon :) Thank you!]
  • Jona (09/08/2014)

    The Island Shell matched my skin tone. I hope you could also have BB Cream and Lip Scrub. :)
  • Katreena (08/30/2014)

    When I first thought of buying this product, I thought for sure I was Sand Dollar. It says on the guide that it's for medium skintones. I thought for sure that I had medium skintone. I'm not too dark and I'm not too light and I have yellow undertones. When I finally bought it, however, it was so dark and so weird on my skin. I liked the smoothness though when I first applied it. I tried the powder with other people too, my sister, my mom, my cousin. They all had too light skin to match the powder. (Only my sister has lighter skin than I have.) What's more is that the powder oxidizes over time that when I wore it around the house to see its long-term effects, I turned into a Simpson. I have now used it as a bronzer mixed with other powders. Knowing that the powder oxidizes, the next time I bought the refill, I asked my mum to buy me the lightest shade. It, very surprisingly, fit my skintone perfectly. I do, however, have one very frustrating peeve; it looks cakey on my skin after a few hours that I wouldn't even want to reapply. I can sleep with it on and not have breakouts; I can stay not too oily all day with it on but it will still look cakey and somewhat emphasise my pores. It's far from the smooth, perfect skin look I have when I first apply it every time. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Katreena! We're so glad you were able to find your perfect match with our Mineral Pressed Powder. If you're experiencing a cakey finish, we recommend applying it lightly - you could try using a powder brush, or applying moisturizer and letting it set before applying our powder :) Thank you so much!]
  • Mary Ophanie (08/25/2014)

    I love this products. However, I hope you could expand your shade choices. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Mary Ophanie! We're so glad you love our 100% Natural Mineral Pressed Powder. We'll definitely look into expanding our shades :) In the meantime, we do have 2 new shades of Perfect Finish Mineral Loose Powder - you may want to try them out! Thanks!]
  • Johanna (08/01/2014)

    Loving it and oil control, too. Everytime i use it i feel so clean n oil free. I just wish u have shades for super white chinese. I also suggest u create a more happier packaging, brighter n classy color.:) Make a concealer, too. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Johanna! Thank you for your suggestions. We'll definitely consider them :) Have you tried our Mineral Loose Powder yet? You may find your match with its Soft Ivory shade :) Thanks again!]
  • Ynna (07/21/2014)

    Hi I've been buying human nature products because I love its purity and simplicity. I appreciate the company's actions towards making our mother earth proud. (thumbs up) =) I recently bought the orient pearl shade which is the lightest shade of mineral powder. Sad to say, it's not that light and I hope the company could add more lighter shades. I understand that Human Nature wants to preserve the Morena complexion but some Filipinos have fair complexion too. I hope the firm would do something about this issue. Thank you [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Ynna! Thank you for your honest feedback. We understand that Filipinas have many different, beautiful complexions and we strive to bring out that beauty with each one with our products. We're working on expanding our beauty line and we're in fact coming out with a new loose powder very soon that comes in a light shade. It may be more suited to your skin tone, so we do hope you try it out! Thank you so much!]
  • Mishel (07/05/2014)

    I love the smooth finish and oil control of this powder. Good job HHN! :) the downside is, it breaks easily :( by the way, I am concerned about the safety of using farnesol and linalool in this. I hope you can address this. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Mischel! We're so glad you love our 100% Natural Mineral Pressed Powder :) We're sorry to hear about your cracked powder, though. Cracking is a challenge faced by all foundation brands, most especially because we use only all-natural powder binders, which may not be as strong as chemical ones. However we are already looking into this issue and in the meantime, we would be happy to replace your powder with a crack-free one :) Regarding your concern, both farnesol and linalool are allowed in the Natural Products Association's Illustrative list of allowable natural ingredients. The NPA's Natural Standard for safety states that a product labeled "natural" should avoid any ingredient with a suspected human health risk. Farnesol and linalool are deemed safe by the NPA, so no worries :) Thank you!]
  • Aly (06/12/2014)

    i've tried the sand dollar shade, i like how it naturally complements my skin tone but the only problem is it easily breaks. i really hope you'll formulate a more stronger, well-binded face powder. thanks HN! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Thanks for the feedback, Aly! We only use 100% natural binders so breakage occasionally occurs (especially during the hot season) but rest assured that we strive improve the formulation as do other natural makeup brands.]
  • Tina (05/22/2014)

    I ordered the orient pearl shade online and i felt indifferent with the product. In fairness to the product, it is smooth. I applied the powder after applying elixir and day moisturizer.However, i thought that the shade was light or suited for my skintone. Even though, i have covered my face and neck with the powder, my shoulders and hands would tell that my skin tone does not match with the powder color. You see, I am quite fair skinned. I used to apply maybellibe light shade powder on my face which perfectly matches my skin color. Hopefully, you can create a lighter shade which matches fair skinned women. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Tina! Thank you for your feedback. We strive to bring you products that would bring out every Filipina's natural beauty, so we can definitely take your suggestion into consideration in developing future makeup products. In the meantime, our Customer Service would be happy to exchange your product for one that you're happier with :) Our Customer Service will be in touch with you soon! Thank you!]
  • Cynthia (05/01/2014)

    I'm using Orient Pearl it looks good on my morena complexion. Thanks HNN
  • Vanessa (04/01/2014)

    I've been a user of HHN's mineral makeup line for a long time now. What I've noticed (along with the other reviews) is that the powders crack easily. I understand that HHN doesn't put any binders in their products and I hope that they can remedy the concern naturally. Another thing that I noticed with the make up is that they tend to lose color as time goes by? Like in the beginning, the coverage (whether it be the compact or the perfect coverage kind) would be good but after a month or two, I need to apply more powder to get the coverage that I want. Incorporating SPF in your compacts would definitely be a plus too! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Vanessa! We've found that cracking is really a challenge that all makeup companies (even chemical makeup) face, which makes it extra tricky for a 100% natural makeup brand like us. Nevertheless, we're striving to bring you the best and safest possible formulation that is both functional and amazing for your skin, which is why we're currently working on a stronger formulation. We'll definitely keep you posted for that :) As for your other concern, this is actually the first time we encountered a concern regarding the pigmentation of our makeup over time. It's possible that the surface of our powdered products (whether our powder, foundation, blush) may have begun to "cake," which makes it harder to pick up the product. This often happens in both chemical and natural compacts when the pan is exposed to moisture (whether from a damp face/sponge, oil, or sweat), or too much pressure is applied. Nevertheless, we'd like to learn more about your concern and help you out. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you soon :) Thanks!]
  • ghel (03/20/2014)

    I love the Island Shell shade because it complements my morena skin but around halfway through, the powder starts to crack. I keep using it though (I've used many refills already), because it's a great product. I just make do with the cracked powder =( [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Ghel! We're so glad you love our Mineral Pressed Powder! Unlike chemical makeup, our 100% natural mineral powder and foundation are free from chemical binders. We use only natural binders to ensure that our customers get only safe, genuinely natural makeup that cares for your skin and brings out your natural beauty :) We're currently working on a stronger formulation and will definitely keep you posted!

  • Danica (03/02/2014)

    Hello good evening! I'm an avid fan of your products since 2011. I just want to let you know that your products are really great and effective! Sadly, my perfect coverage mineral foundation (honey) and mineral powder (island shell) got cracked for unknown reason yesterday. I am very much aware that unlike other compact foundation powder, this one gets cracked easily because of its content so I'm very careful when it comes to handling (especially Human Nature's cosmetic products) and I have a separate pouch for them. I am disappointed because I just bought my mineral foundation and powder almost 2 weeks ago and now it's cracked into pieces, I don't think I can still use it. As a loyal member/dealer of Human Heart Nature, may I ask someone to look into my concern and if possible reach me thru phone call? I am available anytime. Looking forward for your prompt response. Thank you. Danica [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Danica! We're sorry to hear about your cracked foundation. Cracking is a challenge that both chemical and natural makeup manufacturers face, especially because we don't use any harmful chemical binders in our powders. However we're currently working on a stronger formulation to address cracking concerns and we are very excited to launch it. In the meantime, we would be happy to replace your product with a crack-free one so that you can continue to enjoy our all-natural makeup. Our Customer Service will be in touch soon :) Thank you so much for all your support!]
  • Jessica (02/26/2014)

    I love this product since the 1st day I used it. Kaya lang today when I opened my newly purchase powder, I was disappointed kasi iba na yung sponge niya. Hindi ako bumibili ng refill kasi hindi ko gusto yung sponge kasi medyo magaspang sa face. Pwede po bang ibalik nyo yung dating sponge dun sa compact? please... thanks [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Jessica! We'll definitely consider your request :) Thanks so much!]
  • Shane (02/08/2014)

    I was using this for about a little more than a year before I made a connection that it was causing me to have asthma attacks. I switched from the foundation powder because it was breaking me out and found that the pressed powder didn't. It was the only makeup that didn't break me out so it's the only makeup that I could use. All your other makeup products did, unfortunately. I tried each one praying I'd find something that would suit my skin. (Well, all makeup for that matter. It's my skin.) So imagine my dismay to find out that the only makeup that I could use was triggering my asthma. I think the somewhat loose consistency is a factor. The loose particles get inhaled. Are you perhaps open to considering accepting custom requests? Like maybe a firmer consistency for your pressed powder formulation? It's been four months that I stopped using the pressed powder, so I've been going bare-faced even on special occasions, except for a dab of concealer and eyeliner. I'm desperate... [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Shane! Thank you for bringing your experience to our attention. We're sorry to hear about your asthma. Many mineral makeup brands have been under scrutiny for the speculated respiratory risks they pose from inhaling their nanoparticles. We definitely do NOT use such nanoparticle ingredients in our 100% Natural Mineral Pressed Powder due to these health concerns, and we take strict safety precautions to ensure that our makeup is safe to use without worrying about respiratory risks. Nevertheless, we take your concern very seriously and we would like to investigate it at once to determine the cause of your reaction. We are also currently working on a new powder formulation - if you would like to be part of the panel of respondents, just let us know so we can send you a prototype. We want you to have the best experience with all of our products, and that includes helping you find the right products that work for you. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you very soon :) Thank you!]
  • crizet (02/05/2014)

    I have a very sensitive and oily skin that is why dermatologist recommended to use mineral make up. Mineral make up are expensive and has limited shades that is why I am so grateful that you made a lower cost than other mineral make up. I would like to suggest if you can create a powder type of mineral powder and foundation because I prefer to use my brushes than sponge. More power and looking forward to your new powder type of make up. Happy dealer and happy customer!
  • Michelle Denise (01/31/2014)

    From 100% Clarifying shampoo for my hair to Balancing facial wash and 100% Natural Day Moisturizer for my face to Fragrance free cleansing bar for my body... up to my dishes, Tough love Natural Dishwashing liquid! I also added Balm for all seasons to my kikay kit and I've influenced my office mates, my dad and my hubby to use your products for men. I've also encouraged my mom to be one of your dealers. About 100% Mineral Pressed Face powder, although at first, it was smooth and nice on my face, but after 2 weeks, small break-outs appeared on my forehead. Although I also blame the cold weather for it, I'm not sure if I will try this one further. I've been planning to try the Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation but I'm afraid it might do the same to my forehead. And also the overnight Elixir... I hope there are samples good for a week before I purchase them totally. I love how HN products stay true to "read your label" as all your products contain natural ingredients and the expiry! you really know it does not contain any harmful chemicals and unnecessary extenders... :) I just hope you could venture into more products like Mineral concealers, eyebrow liners, and perfumes! :) Thanks and more power! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Michelle! Wow, we're so thrilled to hear that your whole household has gone green! We're happy that our products take such good care of your family by offering safe and natural goodness :) We're sorry to hear about your breakouts, though!

  • Nina (01/03/2014)

    I love this product. It doesn't break me out and doesn't sting or make my face itchy. ( Other pressed powders sting my skin when I use them, I don't know why ) The problem is that this is my third pressed powder in 2 months because the product keeps on cracking, I hate it when it cracks and makes a mess in my bag. Please consider making a ' loose' powder version and making a kabuki brush with it. I think a lot of us girls would love that. I still rated this a 5 because I love that you are 100% cruelty free and never test on animals. But please change the packaging. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Nina! We're so thrilled that you love the benefits of our 100% Natural Mineral Pressed Powder. We're sorry to hear about your cracking, though. Cracking is a challenge for all pressed powder and foundation manufacturers - most especially for us, because we use only natural binders to hold the powder together. Natural binders may not be as strong as synthetic binders, however we can assure you that they are definitely the healthier and safer alternative that genuinely cares for your skin (and does not irritate your skin or make it itchy, unlike chemical brands you may have used in the past). We are currently working on improving our formulation to make it stronger and we truly value your patience and support. In the meantime, we would be happy to replace your cracked powder so that you can continue to enjoy its all-natural goodness. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you very soon! Thanks!]
  • Danica (01/02/2014)

    Hi! I replaced this item over revlon and max factor brands because the said brands cause me to breakout because of my sensitive and oily skin. I love how this is fragrance free, i love the coverage and its even cheaper than my previous brands. My face has behaved since using this over 3 months ago. However, please repackage this item. The packaging looks "pang matanda" and boring. Will still continue using it though. Thanks! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Danica! We're so glad that our 100% Natural Mineral Pressed Powder works so much better for your skin than commercial chemical brands - we can honestly say that its all-natural formulation is definitely safer and healthier than chemical makeup! Thank you for your suggestion, we will definitely consider it in evaluating future packaging options :) Thanks again!]
  • Mary (11/15/2013)

    Being a dealer, I bought this product to test it out so that I can also recommend it to my clients if ever it's good. And it did work well for me. I didn't get any pimple from using it, and I like its finish on my skin. Only concern I have is that its plastic packaging seems to be a bit cheap looking compared to other brands in the market. I do hope this gets improved soon.
  • Violet (09/09/2013)

    Love the finish of this powder. Also did not cause me breakouts as I have sensitive skin. Unfortunately it cracked even if I've have it for barely a week. Hope you can do something about this [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Violet! We're sorry to hear about your cracked powder. We've found that even expensive powders on the market face the challenge of cracking, but we are currently researching natural powder binders that can are just as strong as (or stronger than) chemical binders in commercial makeup, minus the health risks that chemical ingredients pose. That way, we can provide you with a flawless finish that is 100% natural and healthy for your sensitive skin. We want you to be able to continue loving our 100% Natural Mineral Powder fully, so we'd be happy to replace your powder with a brand new one. Our Customer Service will be in touch with you soon! Thanks! :)]
  • Mina (09/02/2013)

    I've been trying this for a week with the Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation. I find I reach for this one more. It looks a lot more natural even under sunlight; while the Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation settles into my HUGE pores (yay). Only three things before PERFECTION: Orient Pearl (lightest shade) is a little dark (I'm usually an NC20). Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation in Vanilla suits me better. I hope they expand the shade range for this powder... I have really sensitive skin and was hoping FARNESOL and LINALOOL (fragrance ingredients) weren't necessary. But so far, I don't think this is burning my sensitive skin. Lastly, I noticed Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are in the first five ingredients, so this definitely has sun protection. Maybe Human ♥ Nature can test and indicate its specific broad spectrum protection? I don't really care about the cracking problem because I keep this one on my dresser. Overall, super excellent powder for a super reasonable price! Recommended! ♥
  • AM (08/22/2013)

    Hi, I love using this product! It's looks very natural on me and i'm assured that it has no harmful ingredients. One thing however that disappoints me is the fact that the supposedly 'compact' powder always breaks. So it's messy to use! I ordered my last one and will see if it will still break. If it will, I might decide to change brand because I cannot bring it in my handbag anyway :(. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Arnee! We're sorry to hear about your cracked powder. Cracking sometimes happens because the natural binders we use are not yet as strong as chemical binders - but the truth is, they are definitely safer and healthier for your skin than most synthetic pressed powders on the market today! We've noticed that even many expensive, high-end chemical makeup brands do crack sometimes, too, so it seems to be a common challenge among pressed powder manufacturers. Our R&D team is hard at work researching natural makeup binders that are as strong as chemical binders, without the health risks, and we hope you look forward to that :) In the meantime, we want you to have the best experience with our products so we would be happy to replace your pressed powder with a brand new one absolutely free. Our Customer Service will be in touch very soon :) Thank you!]

    I just got the powder yesterday and tried it early this morning. It's been 3 hours and di pa nag-ooily face ko. :) nilagay ko sya sa make up kit ko na nakabox pa rin kasi ang dami reviews na mabilis raw sya magcrack. I checked it ngayon ngayon lang and surprisingly, nag-crack siya :(((( [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Angela! We're so sorry to hear about your cracking. This hasn't happened that often since we reformulated our powder, but we're still looking into stronger natural binders to improve its strength. We're glad to know that it works so well for you, though, because it's definitely much safer and healthier for your skin than most expensive chemical makeup out there. We would be happy to replace your powder right away :) Our Customer Service will be in touch!]
  • Adrian Val Olonan (06/10/2013)

    I so like how this Mineral Powder effectively controls the oil minus the carcinogens of talc powder I used to apply before! Ideal for corrective makeup touch-ups! Using brush minimizes friction on the face, thus reducing chances of triggering pimples, so please do consider brushes instead of puffs. But overall, this is a great product.
  • AkoCDarna (06/03/2013)

    Been using this product since last year and I so love how it blends on my skin. Unfortunately, wala pa kong nauubos na compact because after a few uses, nagka-crack na sya kahit di nabagsak. Of course that's understandable since there are no chemical binders in its ingredients list, which is why I lo HNN products :p It's kinda icky lang kasi to use the cracked compact powder kasi una, nagkakalat sa toiletry bag, second, ung parang dirty na sya kasi sabog-sabog kaya parang ayoko na syang gamitin. I suggest you come up with a loose powder or maybe a creamy powder na lang para di sayang. [EDITOR'S NOTE: We're delighted that you love how our mineral powder works for your skin! We're sincerely sorry about the cracked powder, and we will be happy if you will allow us to make up for the mess in your kikay kit by giving you a replacement for free.

  • Cherry Ann (05/28/2013)

    I first tried Sand Dollar. It was good though i might have picked the wrong color for me since I looked tan with this. I bought the island shell refill next, sadly, minutes after placing it in my compact, it broke. I was disappointed, I just placed in another container to make it look like a loose powder.Maybe next time I'll buy the compact though I wouldn't be able to save. Hope you could do something about the binders. i would've given it a 5, it's just that I wasn't able to maximize this compact powder [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hello Cherry, thank you for taking a few minutes to let us know about your experience, and for giving us high points - we do appreciate the 4 stars! Because we want all our customers to have a 5-star experience, we wish to offer a replacement for your cracked powder, absolutely free of charge. Our Customer Service team will be in touch. :)]
  • Rina (04/30/2013)

    First off, i love how the powder makes me look so fresh.It evens out my skin tone.But barely two months from purchasing it,the powder cracked and i don't recall dropping it or anything like that.I now leave my compact at home to save what's left.It's a good thing I don't need to retouch throughout the day.Good product but I wish it were more durable? :) [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Divina! We only use the most natural ingredients in our products, including the binder for the powder. Natural binders are not as strong as chemical ones but at least they shouldn't give you breakouts or other health issues :) Although the cracking is rare compared to how many we sell, it may happen from time to time. But the good news is we'd be happy to replace your cracked powder. Our Customer Service will be in touch :)]
  • Sofy (03/27/2013)

    I got the boracay bronze as pasalubong for a morena cousin in the US, and I was super pumped that she loved it! Even her mom noticed how well it blend well with her skin. The best thing about it too is that they were thrilled HN is available online in the US too. I was pretty proud to convert them instantly! I just hope though maybe you can consider adding the application to maybe loose powder as an option? Am on my 4th refill for caramel foundation, it always breaks half way or so too bad! So please do cause I don't plan to use another brand. Thanks.:) [EDITOR'S NOTE: Thanks for your suggestion, Sofy! Pressed powder is the more common format preferred by our Filipino customers, but we'll explore the possibilities of loose powder. :)]
  • Ritchelle (03/10/2013)

    Ihad an acne prone skin. whenever i used make up i ended up scratching my face. my dermatologist recommended the VMV hypoallergenic product which really suites my skin. however, the product is expensive and i wanted to try an organic one which is kinda affordable. so i tried human nature pressed powder in sand dollar. I had bought and tried this powder last month. I was happy with the result. sadly, nag cracked na yung powder after a week of using it. so what i did was to used the powder nalang sa bahay. di ko na siya dinadala kasi madudumihan lang yung bag ko. sayang talaga kasi i wanted this product pa naman kasi it stays nice and friendly on my skin. please fix this problem. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Ritchelle! The cracking sometimes happens because we use only natural binders which are kinder to the skin. But we'll be happy to replace your compact for free!]
  • Miro (02/21/2013)

    Since I have sensitive skin, I always opt for make-up formulated without potentially toxic substances. I loved how finely milled this pressed powder was, and how close the Orient Pearl shade was to my skin tone. However, after around a month of using the product, I was surprised to find that it had disintegrated in its own compact! I was absolutely sure I didn't drop the compact at any point. :( [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Miro, because our makeup is free from chemicals that can be harmful to the skin, stronger chemical powder binders are not used. However, we're improving our formulation so that our natural binders can be as good or even better than chemical ones! We'll be glad to replace your cracked powder - our customer service team will be in touch.]
  • `Jollibee (02/03/2013)

    I'm so happy I discovered this by the help of my sister, I have acne prone and very sensitive skin so I don't usually wear make up or even face powder but this is a wonder, I got orient pearl shade and it perfectly suit my fair skin and the best thing is I didn't breakout! yay. thank you Human Nature :D
  • cheenie (01/10/2013)

    i love the coverage. It is sheer and not cakey. I use orient pearl and its perfect for my complexion. I was reading the review and some reviews said that it cracked easily. However, with the new formulation, the powder is more intact. I brought mine here in Singapore and its almost finish now but the powder has not cracked yet.
  • Kristina (12/21/2012)

    I've been using your products for quite some time now and I should say that the results were really great for my skin. I decided to try your mineral powder but I was heartbroken when it easily broke into pieces. I would've given it a 5 rating but the product is very brittle. I hope you can improve it (make it harder and not easy to break) so as to make the product worth of what we pay for. Thank you Human Nature! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Kristina, thank you for taking time to leave us constructive feedback. Just to help you understand the way natural mineral makeup is formulated, we use natural binders which hold the powder together, which may not be as strong as chemical binders, but are much safer for your skin. Our Natural Care Labs is working hard to eliminate the cracking problem, though! Meanwhile, we will be glad to replace your cracked powder for free. Our customer service team will get in touch. Thank you!]
  • Mabelle (12/09/2012)

    I bought the island shell shade almost a month ago and I love it! It fits my skin shade well (i'm not that maputi and not that dark too) and it leaves my face feeling smooth. I just got disappointed when it cracked right in the middle in the shape of a circle. Would've given it 5 stars if only it didn't crack... :( [EDITOR'S NOTE: We're glad you love our Mineral Powder, Mabelle! Just to help you understand, we only use natural binders for our powders, and while they may not be as strong as chemical ones, you can be sure that only good ingredients are in your compact. However, we would like to offer you a free replacement for your cracked powder to make it up to you, because we do want our customers to have the best products we can offer. :) Kindly wait for our customer service team to get in touch with you to facilitate this.]
  • Juliet (12/05/2012)

    Both the blush and the foundation easily becomes powder or crushed into powder form. So I agree why not make it powder form because it creates mess.
  • Ramona Liza (11/20/2012)

    I bought my own a month ago and I was very excited to use it. But to my dismay, upon opening the product, there was already a crack on the heart shape, but it didn't matter. A week after, the cover was destroyed and was separated from the compact. I still used it because it gives a great finish on top of my BB cream until it started cracking and it was already causing mess in my kit. I only use it in the morning. I hope you improve your packaging because its a really good product. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Ramona, we appreciate your dropping by and letting us know your experience with our powder. At Human Nature, we're dedicated to providing the best product experience to our customers, so we hope to make up for the cracking and breaking by refunding or replacing your purchase for free. Our customer service team will get in touch with you. Thank you!]
  • adet (11/18/2012)

    i love this product because it is cheap, doesn't break me out and talc-free but just using less than a month it already cracked and I have to dispose it which is not worth my money please fix this problem :( [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Adet! Thank you very much for taking time to give us your feedback and we’re really sorry about your experience. This issue has already been addressed when we’ve released the new and improved batch of our mineral powder. For now, allow us to have it replaced. We’ll also have to get the old one so we can check on the product and identify the problem. Our customer service team will get in touch with you to discuss this. Thanks! :)]
  • dacey (11/11/2012)

    I was never really a fan of pressed powders before but when I discovered HN last month, I went ahead and bought the Orient Pearl mineral powder. And Alas! it was such a delicious treat on my skin! However I only had little chance of using it since the powder cracked right away after a week of using it. The cracked powder just spilled in my pouch (guess it liked my pouch better than my face ;-( If only I knew that it easily cracks when I first saw it on HN's flagship store, I should have transferred it to an empty bottle making it a loose powder instead and would have maximized its use. I only found out the reason for its cracking when I went back and asked why it did that - all because every bit of its ingredient is Natural! Now I'm still having 2nd thoughts of buying a refill because of my 1st experience. I might just wait until you guys come up with the loose powder version of it so nothing will be wasted for me. Hopefully that would be next year! [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi dacey! We’re happy to know that you love our mineral powder but we’re really sorry to hear about the cracking. This issue has already been addressed and we’ve already released a batch of a better and improved mineral powder. Since we’ve released the new batch, we haven’t had a lot of concern about cracking. But worry not! :) We’ll gladly have it replaced with another item or have it credited to your account. Someone from Customer Service Team will be in touch. :)]
  • Christine (11/02/2012)

    I love how the Island Shell shade fits my skin tone perfectly. Since I do not like to wear make up all the time, this shade is perfect for my every 'natural' look because of it finish. I do not know if it is just me, because I notice that there are very miniscule shiny particles on my face but no worries the powder is still the best. Hope you can come up with natural liquid foundation and concealer. Thanks for the good products. :)
  • yen (11/02/2012)

    My search is over! I have been looking for the right face powder for me since other brands just gave me the itch and breakouts! Only Human Nature pressed powder truly satisfied me. The first time I applied it, there was no itch, no breakouts and no shine! Just a fresh-faced, blooming me! Friends say I look much prettier these days...Thanks to Human Nature!
  • Monica (10/22/2012)

    I once used Sand Dollar while in the company of my make-up artist friend and she complimented me on the powder I used because of the way it perfectly matches my skin tone. My problem with this product, however, is that it cracks. Right now, my make-up kit is dusted with this powder because of this. A lot of powder is wasted because of this and it is such a hassle every time I use it because chunks of powder fall off everywhere. I understand that this happens because it has no artificial binders so why don't you just repackage this into loose powder? I think it makes more sense. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Monica! Thank you very much for your feedback and for letting us know about your experience. This concern has already been addressed and we’ve already released a better and improved batch of mineral powders. From the time the new and improved batch was released, we no longer got a lot of concerns about cracking. It could be possible that what you’ve got is from an older batch. But with Human Nature, our desire is to ensure utmost happiness of our customers. With this, we’d like to offer you a replacement or credit for your foundation. Our customer service team will get in touch with you to discuss this. :)] ok
  • Kristina (08/07/2012)

    I bought the Island Shell shade at Beauty Bar. It seemed the perfect shade for me when I tried it on there. However when I used it the next day, the color seemed to get darker after a few hours (my face became darker than my neck!). Maybe the powder oxidized as a reaction to my skin? I was so sad because I love the good coverage and matte finish of your mineral powder. I believe the Orient Pearl would have been the correct shade for me. I will buy that shade next time, but I just feel frustrated that I ended up wasting money on the wrong shade for me :( On a happier note, I would like to commend Human Nature for providing top quality natural products at really reasonable prices. I'm a fan of natural products and I used to have to buy imported products which are quite pricey. So keep up the good work! :)
  • Anne (07/24/2012)

    I love the coverage of this powder. Keeps my skin oil free! Its unscented and the best part I have no allergies to it, although when the powder is almost used up it cracks and the left over cake I can no longer use. I hope you can do something about this so I can enjoy every bit of powder left. :) Keep up the good work and the innovations! [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Anne! We’re really happy that our product works great on your skin but we’re really sorry about the cracking. We’ve just actually released a batch of foundation that better withstands cracking. We really want to make you happy and we want to make it up to you so we’d like to offer a replacement for your foundie. Our Customer Service team will be in touch. :)]
  • tattsss (07/24/2012)

    I bought my orient pearl mineral powder almost 3 weeks ago, and so far, no cracking. It blends well on my skin and gives enough coverage but not cakey...though it sometimes makes my skin itch a little. Also, instead of using the sponge, I use a brush, which works well because the powder is not that compact. It's the same as my MAC finishing powder (which is also in compact form) and works just as well. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi tattsss! We’re very grateful to know that you love our product. :) While all our products are guaranteed safe and free from harmful chemicals which can irritate your skin, if it is sensitive, it is still possible to experience a few reactions. However, for your case, it is possible that you are just adjusting with your new make-up since the itching do not occur for most of the time and is not causing discomfort. We’d like to know more about the itching that you’ve encountered and if you are not satisfied with our product, we’d gladly have it replaced with any other Human Nature product. Our Customer Service Team will be in touch. :)]
  • Rhea (07/19/2012)

    it does the job of a good powder but i notice that when i use it i usually end up scratching my face and developing acne...when i stopped using it for two days but continued on using my other HN products (moisturizer, sunflower oil, toner), the itching stopped and zits start to go down...i usually suffer from skin allergies maybe im allergic to some of its ingredients?? [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Rhea! We’re sorry about your experience. Yes, you are right; it is possible that you had a reaction with one of the ingredients. Although we make sure that our products are all natural, if you have a history of allergies, there is also a chance you might have allergies to certain natural ingredients too. Our products are far less likely to cause a reaction compared with chemical products, but there is always a small chance. But here in Human Nature, we’d like to ensure that all our customers would be satisfied and with this, we’d like to offer a replacement or credit on your account. Our Customer Service Team will be in touch. :)]
  • Dinna (07/10/2012)

    I have been quite a fan of mineral makeups so I giddily tried the pressed powder of HHN. To my pleasant surprise, the Island Shell shade blended perfectly well on my skin, and it is one powder that effectively controlled the oil secretion of my forever oily skin. It performed much better in terms of oil control, and true to its claim, it fits the Filipina shade perfectly. It's so much better than my Clinique pressed powder! I absolutely love it!
  • Joy (07/06/2012)

    The powder is very nice, but it cracks after a few uses. I thought I got the newer stock because I only bought it last month. Unfortunately, it is now cracking in it's case. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Joy! We’re really sorry about the cracking. The older batches had the cracking problem before but because we want to make our customers happy, we’ve come up with the new and improved batches. Worry not. :) We’ll gladly have the product replaced. Our Customer Service Team will be in touch. :)]
  • Nikki (06/19/2012)

    I bought the sand dollar shade which the sales assistant recommended since i am a morena. I find it too yellowish though and does not cover even the slightest imperfections on my skin. I also have a bout of sneezing after applying it, which makes me think that i am allergic to it. I am also disappointed that the powder cracked even if i did not drop it and it was just in my bag. However, since i love HN products, I would still like to try another shade but hesitant to do so since i may have the same results as my first purchase. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi, Nicole! We’re sorry you feel that way about our Mineral Pressed Powder. While it should provide lightweight coverage, perhaps our Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation will work better for you in a darker shade than Sand Dollar (we recommend Caramel or Toffee)—it gives medium to heavy coverage. Also, we’ve reformulated our Pressed Powder to withstand cracking better; it’s possible that you got a compact from an older batch. In any case though, we’d be more than willing to exchange this for a new product, or for credit if you’d like. Our customer service team will be in touch :)]
  • maureen (06/14/2012)

    the sand dollar shade compliments my skin tone perfectly, i didn't have any breakouts and i like how natural it looks after applying..best used with the mineral blush
  • Martina (06/12/2012)

    I super love how this Island Shell Mineral Powder blends with my skin. It looks so natural on me plus the fact that it makes me feel safe knowing that there are no harmful chemicals on my face. Please also make a loose version of this. It will be an answer to the "cracking-easily" problem of the compact one :)
  • LJ (05/24/2012)

    Tried different expensive brands before but so far, I am very satisfied with Human Nature Mineral Powder. It's so light, blends to my skin tone and keeps my face oil free for hours, which other brands weren't able to do. My powder only cracked when it was almost consumed so cracking issue is not really a big deal for me.
  • Michelle (05/03/2012)

    I love this Mineral Powder. Its my skin's perfect match. Doesn't irritate my sensitive and pimple-prone skin. The only downside to this product...compact powder easily cracks! [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Michelle! We’re glad you enjoy our pressed powders :) It’s made of rice powder and bamboo powder, so it really does help prevent and subside break outs. Regarding the cracking issue, we’ve already solved that in our recent batches, and would be glad to replace your old compact with a new one. Our customer service team will be in touch :)]
  • Bea Monica (04/12/2012)

    The coverage and the shade was perfect but the smell omg, i stopped using it because the smell bothered me and other people smelled it coming from my skin. When's the new formula coming out? It would be really nice if you added fragrance or make the dung smell go away :) [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi, Bea! Oh no! We’re sorry that’s how the Mineral powder smells like to you – we’ve never had that problem before! That’s not how it usually smells though, and it really should be better, so if you’ like, we’d be more than happy to exchange this for a newer compact. If not, we could always exchange it for credit, too. You might to have a look at our new Perfect Coverage foundation too! Our customer service team will be in touch :)]
  • whengrg (03/29/2012)

    When I first used the improved powder I was so contented because it was smoother and it looks more natural on my skin far better than the first one. After 2-3 times of using it, to my surprise, my make-up kit was a mess! The powder easily cracked though there was never a time that I drop it.I tried putting alcohol to put pieces back together and make it a compact powder but it didn't work. Please do something about this so you can improve the next batch that you will release. I met a friend using HHN mineral powder and she also had the same concern. I registered as a dealer because I'm really a consumer of all your products.Please come up with cologne and sunblock very soon. Thank you and God bless [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Rowena! We’re so sorry to hear about your experience. We have in fact addressed the cracking issue already and came out with a better formulation. We’d be more than willing to replace your old compact with a new one, if you’d like. Our customer service team will be in touch :)]
  • Aya (03/28/2012)

    After using your hair and body products, I finally decided to try your makeup, starting with the powder. I was very hesitant because even mineral makeup have caused me breakouts before. I was also afraid I got the wrong color because I got the lightest but it blends with my skin well. I still haven't experienced a breakout with any of your products. Refills would be nice and I hope you will sell brushes and sponges in the future, too! I love the texture and coverage, the only downside is it easily cracked! [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Aya! We’re glad you like our mineral powder! Refills are coming in September 2012 and you’ll be happy to know that we’ve already fixed the cracking problem with a newer formulation. Our customer service team will get in touch with you if you’d like to exchange your compact for a newer one :)]
  • ghel (03/12/2012)

    i love HHN's mineral powder because it's really light & has a nice & natural coverage, aside from being 100% free from harmful chemicals. being morena, i chose as my first one the sand dollar shade, but it was kinda too yellowish for my skin tone. my second one, which suits me perfectly, is the island shell shade. i was around 75% through my first island shell powder before it cracked, which was better than i expected based on the reviews here. i'm now on my third purchased mineral powder (second set of the island shell shade) and unfortunately, before even getting halfway through it, the first cracks appeared and now the powder really has loosened cracked bits which spills out of its case once i open it =( hope you can improve on this aspect of the mineral powder. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Gheleene. We’re happy to hear you like our products—though we are sorry though about your experience. We have indeed improved our formulations, and it’s possible you got a compact from an earlier batch. In any case though, we’d be more than happy to replace it for a new Mineral Pressed Powder which won’t crack. Our customer service team will be in touch. :)]
  • Tsina (03/10/2012)

    Content-wise, i love it and will continue to use it! Of the 4 powders that I have bought, all of it cracked. One arrived through courier cracked already when opened even though it was carefully bubble-wrapped, the others cracked few days later. Sad thing was that, cracked contents fell all over the place and part of it went to waste. Since I had no time returning and replacing it, I poured it to a used mineral loose powder container and just use it as loose. Would you also consider repacking it as loose? I just bought three of it very recently.. I do not know if those were old stocks since I read here that you have strengthened the compact. Thanks. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Jamila. We’re so sorry to hear about your experience. We did in fact improve our formulation so that it no longer cracks, so you almost certainly got some from an earlier batch. Thank you for your suggestion, though, we’ll definitely keep that in mind! In the meantime, we would be more than happy to replace your compacts with newer ones which won’t crack. Our customer service team will be in touch :)]
  • Grey (02/29/2012)

    I just bought my mineral powder yesterday from Human Nature Imus Branch. I must say that the sales attendants are very nice and accommodating. I got the mineral powder, mineral blush and sunflower beauty oil. It was good to see that the store have available testers of their make-up line. I was thinking whether to get the Island Shell or Orient Pearl, Island Shell is more on the pink tone while Orient Pearl on the yellow shade. I chose Orient pearl since I am acidic, Island Shell might turn orange on me. The texture of the powder is not that finely milled compared to other drugstore or high end brands. When I applied the powder, it made my skin look more even toned and smooth. The coverage is light to medium coverage depending on application. This will just do as a pressed powder, than a foundation. The look is very natural and it made my skin look blooming. As for the oil-controlling properties, I still have to observe more. I also love the powder blush that I bought which comes in Tropical Rose shade. The color is also natural and well pigmented. One thing that I recommend as for the packaging of the mineral powder, is that it is a bit tight and difficult to open, and since the powder has the tendency to crack easily, once you close the compact, it could easily damage the powder due to the impact when closing. Maybe it is much better if they use a compact/container with a push button closure. I also loved their old matte gold compact than the purple one since its classier, but that's just my opinion. =) Overall, I would recommend this to my friends. The powder is of great quality and the price is really affordable and the ingredients are 100% natural! Kudos to Human Nature! =)

  • Debo (02/29/2012)

    Last Christmas season, I bought 3 of these. One for me and two for my sister and a friend. Yes, I know this review is so late, but my friend insist on me writing this. That is how passionate she has become when it comes to using Human Nature products! ;-) We have no complain on this product. It feels smooth to touch, easy to apply and knowing it is completely safe is a definite plus factor! But first my friend complained that it cracked, about her first week of using it. She thought that since the company is new and it is organic, they must be still in the process of improving it. I also thought mine was included in the improved batch since it lasted about two weeks before it cracked. I knew I did not drop it, it must have been tossed around in my bag that's why it happened. My sister's powder cracked next. So I guess this product still needs to be reformulated. I would definitely buy again if it has been thoroughly tested and reviewed. Returning the items would cost us quite a sum since we are located in the province, and it is a hassle that's why we did not bother. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi, Deborah! Thank you for caring enough to write a review. It means a lot that we have Human Nature users who want to help us improve the quality of our products so you can enjoy them even more :) We are sorry, though, to hear about the cracking. We did indeed improve the formulations for the Mineral Pressed Powder at the beginning of this year and we will gladly replace your old pressed powder, as well as your sister’s and your friend’s, with a new one which won’t crack :) Our customer service team will be in touch :)]

  • Mae (02/22/2012)

    I am a biiiig fan of human nature products because working in a hospital makes me very health conscious in everything that I put in my body. So, when this product came out and available at a beauty bar outlet, I immediately bought. When I tried the shade at my chin, the island shell shade seemed perfect. But, when I used it and it oxidizes, i suddenly became darker, then very very oily, and my forehead became very very itchy. Honestly, I would love to buy this product again. But, I would be happier if you could improve the color to a little bit lighter than Island Shell but darker than the lightest one (im not sure what is it)? Then, if you could help me with the allergic reaction in my forehead and my oilyness (maybe its just my skin :() , then this product will make me a fan for the rest of my life. :D [Editor’s Note: Hi, Mae. We’re happy to hear you’re a fan of our products! We are sorry, though, to hear about your experience with our Mineral Powder. They don’t contain any harmful chemicals so most people find them less sensitizing than other chemical powders, but it’s possible that you have some sort of allergy to one of the ingredients. If you’re allergic to lots of food types, that can be an indication that you should be cautious with natural products too. Thank you for voicing your concern on having new shades, we’ll try to work on that. In the meantime, though, we’ll happily take this back from you and give you a credit for it :) Our customer service team will be in touch.]
  • Madel (02/16/2012)

    Good day, I’m a loving user of your product since 2010. But then, there are products that made me unsatisfied and sad, your mineral pressed powder and mineral blush. I bought it last June 2011 somewhere in Los Banos, Laguna. Cracking was never an issue to me, my concerns are: it made my face broke out lots of pimples after 1 month of usage (after investigation) and its so sad i have to keep it with a slight regrets because of pricey powder and blush.. Hope someday it would be re-formulated so i could lovingly used it again .. :D thank you.. i still love your products. more power [Editor's Note: Hi, Madel, we're so sorry to hear about your experience.

  • Christine (02/11/2012)

    This is the best mineral powder I have used. This new formulation can cover minor blemishes without the uneven skin tone appearance. My skin tone is between Ivory and Fair and I use the Island Shell shade. The finish looks very natural on me. Since the first day I used this new formulation, I have instantly received numerous compliments about how blooming I look and people are even wondering if I am wearing any makeup at all. Haha. :)
  • Cai (02/08/2012)

    I just got my 2nd boracay bronze from the courier, and I noticed some improvement. I used to have the gold compact, the shade was perfect for a morena like me. But it was a bit grainy and had an odd scent, somewhat off-putting but I cared more the shade and the sheer coverage. :) This new and improved batch is A+, finer and almost non-scented! I love how it just disappears onto my skin while ridding the excess shine. I don't look like an espasol, haha! Though it would be nice to have a separate compartment for the applicator; but really, a quintessential component of my makeup kit!
  • Mabel (02/08/2012)

    I started using the mineral pressed powder last year. I am a few days away from opening my third compact. I really recommend it to my friends. I share the same sentiment as the others who put in their review of your mineral powder. I think it would be better if you packaged it as a loose mineral powder with brush since I think all mineral powders come in loose packaging. And, it easily cracks so better if it's not pressed. Or, if you think that the pressed mineral powder is a better version, kindly have refills instead of us buying a new compact every time the pan gets empty. And I think it would cost cheaper if you have it in refills. [EDITOR’S NOTE – Thanks for your review Mabel! You’ll be happy to know that we do have refills coming out in June :) And we’ve solved the cracking issue – our new formulations don’t crack. If you have an older version of the powder which has cracked, we’ll happily replace it for you free of charge :)]

    i really enjoyed using this product! my only hang up about it was that it cracked really easily, even with the new formulation. adding an SPF would also be great but other than that, i love it! <3 PS please formulate a mineral bb cream soon! im sure it would be a hit! [Editor’s note: Hi Fill, thank you for your review and feedback. It could be that you have one from an earlier batch since we have now resolved the cracking issue. We will be happy to replace the product for you, free of charge. Our customer service team will contact you to process the replacement. :)]
  • Mary Angelique (02/04/2012)

    My only concern is the shade. I'm using the Orient Pearl shade but it's a bit too dark for my skin tone. I just wish HHN would come up with a lighter shade to suit those with fairer skin like me :)
  • Loree (02/03/2012)

    The new formulation of the mineral powder is a lot better compared to when I started using it 4th quarter of last year. It has better coverage and has a sheer and flawless finish. Also I noticed it mattifies the oiliness of my skin. It even stays longer now and just needed few retouches during the day. However, I noticed it easily cracks and crumbles. Maybe you can also source for a better kind of sponge so it will last longer. [Editor’s note: Hi Loree, thank you for your feedback and product review! Our research and development team already fine-tuned its formulation to address the cracking and we’ll be happy to replace your powder with a new one free of charge. Please expect an email from our Customer Service team. :)]
  • Emilie (01/29/2012)

    I love the feel and effect of the powder on my skin. It blends perfectly to my skin tone. The only thing I don't like about this product, is that, it easily cracks. I have already bought 2 face powders in Island Shell tone thinking that the first one easily cracks because of the courier's mishandling. After a week of using the 2nd powder, it cracks up again, making a mess inside my pouch, and sometimes on my blouse. I also have 2 clients who purchased the same product and tone, telling me how good the product was, but later on complained, that their powder easily cracks. Thus, bugging me to place a review on this. Since this product is really good and been satisfying most of the clients, I hope you could do something about the problem. Thanks and hope to receive a good reply from your end to help me explain it to my clients. [Editor’s Note: Thank you for sharing your feedback about our New and Improved Mineral Powder, Emilie! We are sorry to hear about the cracking incidents that you have experienced. Yes, there were some issues with cracking last year when we changed manufacturing equipment, but it is all solved now. :) We’ll be happy to replace your cracked powder with a new one free of charge. Our Customer Service team will contact you to process the replacement. :)]
  • Denise (01/19/2012)

    orient pearl is sheer and light but yellowish for someone with very fair and pink undertone.. but i like it better than island pearl anyways.. but i wish you had something with fuller coverage for hiding the blemishes (or come up with a concealer maybe).. it did not cause breakouts.. id suggest also just a loose powder version so to avoid risk of mess if it's dropped or inside a bag..scent was better than the one in gold packaging [Editor’s Note: Hi Denise, thank you for your suggestions and feedback about this product. We will actually be releasing a full coverage foundation soon as you suggested, so please watch out for that! God bless! :)]
  • Ella (01/08/2012)

    This powder does what it needs to do. The formulation is so sheer that both Island Shell and Sand Dollar blend in with my skin tone perfectly. It mattifies my face without being heavy and it doesn't give me allergies. Great for everyday use. I've also experienced some cracking after dropping it (oops), but this is a common problem with most pressed powders I've tried. And since I'm pretty prone to dropping stuff, I've accepted this as a fact of life. Great product - I've no complaints and will buy again.
  • Cara (01/06/2012)

    The coverage is good since it covers my blemishes without the i-have-makeup-on-my-face look. However, the powder cracks, it goes everywhere even when the compact is closed. Whenever I open it, bits of powder are scattered. Aside from that, neither Orient Pearl nor Island Shell suits my skin tone. Please make a new shade somewhere in between Orient pearl and Island Shell :( [Editor’s Note: Thank you for reviewing our Mineral Powder, Cara! We will forward your request for the new shade to our Natural Care Labs. We’ll also be happy to replace your cracked powder with a new one free of charge, but we would suggest you wait until mid-February for the replacement – our Research & Development team have tweaked the formula so it shouldn’t have this issue any longer, but the first ones will be arriving in mid-Feb. Our Customer Service team will contact you to process the replacement :)]
  • Michelle (01/03/2012)

    I have already written a favorable review on this product but I must make another one. After a week of using, my compact powder cracked, making my cosmetic bag a mess and reducing the volume of the powder by about half. I feel I must also agree with the others that your company should seriously consider making a loose powder version of this. I read somewhere that arrowroot powder (from our very own uraro) makes a very fine and nourishing face powder. Cocoa and cinnamon powder can make good coloring for this. I'm still putting up with the product though, but it's now transferred to an empty plastic bottle of baby powder. [Editor’s note: Hi Michelle, thank you for reviewing our New and Improved Mineral Powder again and we’re sorry to hear about the cracking. We have had a small number of instances of this and we will happily exchange yours for a new one free of charge :) We’ll also pass on the suggestion about Uraro to our Natural Care Labs – thanks so much for the suggestion! We’re always excited to hear about new local ingredients that we can research into! Please expect an email from our customer service team regarding your concern about your cracked mineral powder. :) ]
  • Lian (12/18/2011)

    Sand dollar shade is perfect for me, finished 3 compacts already. Hoping you could sell refills too. My powder also cracks and it becomes messy sa bag, but its fine, i can live with it. :)
  • Anab (12/04/2011)

    I agree with the LOOSE POWDER idea. The product is really good except for it's cracking characteristic. It is such an effort to carry the powder each day. But since I love it, I did live with it.
  • Michelle (11/25/2011)

    I never have used up an entire pressed powder before. I have always been a loose powder fan, until I heard about the dangers of talc. The heavy feel and the caky look of pressed powders always put me off. But your pressed powder is as light as loose baby powder. And it mattifies my oily skin well. I love HN products so much I wrote an article about it in my blog at http://behealthyandwell.com
  • Becca (11/22/2011)

    I agree with what many others have mentioned. The quality of the mineral powder itself is excellent -- very light and lets your skin breathe without clogging your pores; natural coverage which lasts long without needing to reapply often; most of all, it's all natural and safe! Wonderful product indeed! However, I also am very disappointed because it easily cracks and crumbles :( Even when the compact container is closed, loose powder gets out and scatters inside my vanity pouch and every time I open it, bits and chunks of loose powder are scattered all over my clothes and things -- and note that this happens even when I am very careful with handling it. By the time the entire compact is finished, I will have used only half of the entire product because the other half just went to waste. :( I also got my sister one and she keeps complaining about the same thing and prodding me to send my feedback; thus, this. Now I hesitate to recommend it to family and friends who want to try it because I don't want them to disappoint them and create a bad impression of the company's products. I love Human nature products and that's all you will see in my purse, my dresser, and in my bathroom. I hope something can be done about this. Thanks and more power to you, guys! God bless! [EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi Becca, thank you for your participation in reviewing our Mineral Powder. We value your feedback and we are sorry to hear about your experience. Our Customer Service team will get in touch to replace your powder since it should not be cracking like that. I have also passed your feedback on to our Research & Development team. :) ]
  • aena (11/18/2011)

    I love the effect of the powder on my skin. It doesn't feel thick or heavy like other pressed powder and Island Shell complements my skin tone. The only downside to the product is that it easily cracks making the compact messy over time. I guess its better if you make a loose mineral powder instead and improve the packaging like the ones which comes with a free powder puff.
  • Norie (11/13/2011)

    I super love this mineral powder. This is the most affordable mineral powder ive ever see. Island Shell is also perfect for my skintone. The only thing i don't like is that the pressed poweder is too soft. It always cracks. I hope you can improve the packaging or maybe you can also have a loose powder instead. Apart from that i highly recommend this product! [EDITOR’S NOTE: Thank you for your feedback and product review for our New and Improved Mineral Powder, Norie. The reason why it's slightly "softer" than other conventional powders is because we don't use talc as a bulking agent. It can lead to allergic reactions and have been linked to other diseases. We are also only using natural binders to bind the product so it may not be as "hard" as other powders out in the market. Rest assured we are taking your comments into consideration to further improve our formulations. God bless! :)]
  • Arleen (11/07/2011)

    The external packaging (box) looked great, the compact was okay - it seemed too generic/shiny a plastic to look natural. Upon opening, the paper liner between the sponge and powder seemed like it was a circle cut out manually from onion skin paper - it was somewhat ragged and uneven - and this definitely was a downer in terms of presentation. The powder itself was cracked and almost granular - there were loose bits upon opening - and every time I used the sponge, there was a lot of excess getting brushed off the surface. It's almost as if the compact was too dry/chalky and not cohesive. The shade itself was good - perhaps would be better as a loose powder rather than a compact? [EDITOR’S NOTE: Sorry to hear about the cracking, Arleen! All our powders are subjected to extensive drop testing, but it’s always possible that if one is badly handled in shipping, it may suffer some damage like this. But don’t worry, we will happily exchange it for a new uncracked one for you. Someone from our Customer Service team will contact you to arrange it  ]
  • Abby (11/06/2011)

    I love this product! It feels light on the skin and leaves a soft matte finish. Orient pearl is the perfect shade for my mestiza complexion. I don't detect any scent or maybe it's too faint for me to notice. I hope HHN makes one with sunscreen in the future. This is one product I can't live without.
  • Anj (10/31/2011)

    SO hard to find a face powder that will complement my tone, but this one is a great buy! Price is affordable and I did not experienced any breakout after a week of using the product. Highly recommended. :)
  • Ria (10/24/2011)

    I lOVE your powder. I got the package I ordered today and went to immediately test the Boracay Bronze mineral powder. Love at first sight! The shade is a fabulous brown. The moment I laid eyes on it being darker than usual brown I knew I found the right shade. You nailed Filipina color right on the head! I got so tired of checking out other makeup brands that were either to yellow or light for my kind of morena skin, but yours just completely gave coverage literally like second skin. There's a very subtle smell that I like while I was applying it. It felt light but at the same time evened out the sallow parts of my skin tone. Thank you so much! :) Don't ever stop production of this shade, naku!
  • Fidelle (10/18/2011)

    Orient Pearl made me break out. Island Shell did not. I first bought the Island Shell shade, with spectacular results - albeit a tad too dark. It was beautifully mattifying and super-natural that my friends thought I got a slight tan. So I resolved to go for the lightest shade Orient Pearl. It was slightly heavier and cakier than Island Shell. After a week of use, I broke out in lots of pimples. I must be sensitive to whatever makes the lighter shade light. After a visit to my dermatologist (whom I almost never see coz I normally have clear skin), I stopped using the powder and switched back to my good ole commercial pressed powder spiked with salicylic acid. It took around 2 weeks for my break outs to heal. I really wanted to like this powder but I'm afraid to use it again. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Hi Fidelle, we’re sorry to hear about your experience with the Orient Pearl. Island Shell and Orient Pearl both share the same formulation, except the pigments – the lighter color simply means there are less pigments. We think there must be some other issue here, not the foundation since you were fine with Island Shell. Our customer service team will contact you to gather more detailed information though :) ]
  • Bianca (10/17/2011)

    I just got my Orient Light pressed powder just now and when I tried it, I have to admit it's the most gentle pressed powder I've ever tried. As a student, I always use powder that contains talc and I've always been waiting to afford this pressed powder. I say that I never regret anything. It's cheaper than other powders and it's good for your skin~
  • Beryl (10/07/2011)

    I love how this gives my face oil-free and a very natural look. Boracay bronze suits my skin tone. I am not so sure, but I was hoping that this powder has SPF....
  • chel (10/04/2011)

    I love the new packaging ( purple) and formula of HN foundation. It has subtle sweet smell unlike the previous ones in gold color. I love how orient pearl complements my fair and oily skin. It works for me. I'm on my third one now.
  • Lorie (10/01/2011)

    I've been using imported brands of pressed powders and foundations for as long as I can remember and when I started using HHN products, I was all too happy to try out the mineral make-ups. I wasn't disappointed with the mineral powder at all. It's light, it hides imperfections and it doesn't clog my open pores. It also looks so natural on me, it's like I'm wearing no make-up at all!
  • Trish (09/23/2011)

    I use Island Shell for the fair-skinned, which suits my not-dark, not-tisay complexion. I get good, smooth coverage out of it. Mine cracked too, but not until I was more than 75% through it. Can you produce this in loose powder form? Cracking won't be a problem then! Also you won't need the disposable applicators. Users just need to have their own brush.
  • Mia (09/18/2011)

    I've been on the lookout for a foundation that I can use everyday- I was looking for two qualities: 1. light so that it doesn't clog my pores or look cakey 2. absorbs oil and covers my skin imperfections I'm happy to say I've found the ONE in Love Minerals Pressed Powder Foundation! :) I have light skin with yellow undertones and the Orient Pearl is the perfect color for me! :) It makes my skin look smooth, without the make-up look. I also have oily skin and I've noticed that when I use an oil-control film on my face now, the oil is considerably much less now compared to when I used other products before. :) I have sensitive skin and this made existing pimples become smaller! I love it! Congratulations for a great product! :)
  • Hon (09/15/2011)

    I love that this foundation applies smoothly, doesn't cake, & prevents my face from being oily throughout the day. I rarely have to re-apply (except on my T-zone which tends to become really oily on hot & humid days but I usually just have to blot). I have no problem with the scent, I actually like that it's fragrance free. My only issues with the product are: first, the powder really cracks easily. My 1st purchase cracked completely, I'm on my second compact now & I'm only a third through it and its beginning to crack again =(. Second, the compact/container scratches a bit (so its prettiness lessens a bit) & I prefer compacts wherein there's a separate compartment for the sponge (beneath the powder) just for hygienic purposes as well as ease of use. I do hope HHN considers this type of compact & comes up with refills soon! [EDITOR'S NOTE: Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear about your experience. We have spent more mixing time for the pressed powders and the new batches should be more compacted and less prone to breakage. We shall keep in mind your suggestion re the separate compartment packaging. And, as wih all Human Nature products, if you are not completely satisfied, we will be glad to refund or exchange it for you. :) ]
  • Joy (09/10/2011)

    This has been the only pressed powder foundation that I didn't develop acne flare-ups. I am now nearing to buy another Sand Dollar shade. I use sunblock before I apply the powder and I've noticed that too didn't cause flare-ups which is good. Despite it being able to do light coverage, it is able to even out uneven skin tone. Since my skin is oily, I'm okay with the powder form. Scent-wise, I'd expect a certain rice-like smell, since, it is rice-derived. One can tolerate the smell and get used to it when you see you're "hiyang" to it and don't get flare-ups. I'd like to thank the people who made this product possible.
  • bryan (09/09/2011)

    I am a straight guy and i am working as a flight attendant but due to my work i need to look fresh all day long to do that i have to wear this pressed powder the result was amazing for a guy like i need a matted finish foundation that is undetectable or looks natural as if i am not wearing anything just like my bare skin just way better please keep this formula the orient pearl specially i am a mestizo guy the color is perfect before i am using a baby powder for my face and i was like having a white mask on my face very ugly but now i found this its perfect because as i was saying its undetectable!!!!!!!!!
