Review: I’M FROM Mugwort Essence

The I’m From Mugwort Essence is an essence to calm and soothe irritated skin. Consisting of a main ingredient, Mugwort, the soft, thin and fluid texture quickly cleanse and detox sensitive skin. As a Korean natural herb, the mugwort has been widely known for treatments and detoxing effect. This is effective for treating acne, troubled, irritated skin.

The I’m From Mugwort Essence is a simple but popular product of which I’ve consistently heard good news. Though it’s a bit pricey (currently $30 on Amazon), I’m glad I took the plunge. The casing is a sleek, environmentally friendly glass bottle with a TON of essence inside – you are absolutely getting a great bang for your buck. I could easily see this essence lasting me all through the fall AND winter, even after I’ve used it for almost the entirety of summer. The essence itself is thin and watery, dripping straight down your face once applied. It dries quite quickly though, so there’s no mess! Because mugwort is a calming ingredient, there was no irritation when I applied it, and over the summer I’ve definitely noticed an improvement in my skin as it’s been especially helpful in preventing acne from developing.

Definitely a keeper for the routine!
