From the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019, one of the most hyped skincare ingredient probably would be “MUGWORT”. Until last year, this ingredient that not only tastes good but has many benefits on the skin came across unfamiliar and very new to many. However, with constant flows of skincare products and piling reviews of this ingredient, Mugwort is no longer a stranger to not only skincare gurus but for many.
The brand, I’m From
And in the forefront of this gem ingredient, there’s the Korean skincare brand ‘I’m From’. I’m From has gradually but surely built its reputation as a leading Korean skincare brand with lines of natural ingredient based products. The ingredients they have explored and succesfully been approved by the public are rice, honey, ginseng and MUGWORT. Though their ‘mugwort’ line was the most recently launced line, it has already made its way up to best selling even on Wishtrend. Mugwort Essence and Mugwort Mask were their first two launches in the mugwort line and now with the constant requests and needs from their customers, they have brought the Mugwort Cream!
So why Mugwort?
So why is everyone talking about mugwort now? Mugwort has been a very familiar ingredient in Korean culture for a very long time, especially found on many dishes in Korea. It is very well known for enhancing blood circulation, liver condition and also great for women’s menstrual problems. It has been consumed in the form of tea or in cooked dishes.
“In Korea, mugwort is regarded as a healing herb”
It’s also very well known for its peculiar medicinal scent that is pleasing and calming. And now, it is serving its good purpose on our skin and the benefits it provides our skin is fascinating to explore and to keep on our vanity.
Mugwort skin benefits
– Anti inflammatory
– Advanced skin calming
– Prevents rashes, itching, and irritation.
Thanks to its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties, mugwort targets dry, irritated skin effectively. And according to dermatologists, mugwort also has proved through several trials that they act as an antioxidant, helping prevent damage caused by ultraviolet rays, as well as a collagen stimulator, to help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
[I’m From] Mugwort Cream
“73.55% of Mugwort extract in a jar of a cream!”
The new addition to the mugwort line is the mugwort cream that carries 73.55% of mugwort extract. The cream was designed to complete the mugwort skincare to boost your antioxidant and anti inflammatory care but also to replace your moisturizer that lacked hydration and comfort on the skin. The texture is somewhere between a gel and a cream type. It absorbs effectively and quick like a gel while it leaves a hydrating layer like a cream.
How to create your mugwort day & night care
Since it is a cream, you can add it at the cream step along with the entire mugwort line or you can replace your moisturizer whenever your skin feels irritated or inflamed. You can use it with the Mugwort Essence and it will only enhance your mugwort skincare. After applying your Mugwort Essence, add an adequate amount of the cream with the tips of your fingers and make sure you apply it evenly on your entire face. You can enhance the absorption with gentle tapping motions.

Actual reviews from staffs at Wishtrend
“A new addition to the mugwort line!”
There aren’t too much brands that carry skincare products with mugwort, yet I’m from offers not only 3 but now 4 mugwort products! From essence to cream, I can curate an entire skincare routine with the ingrdient that I have fallen in love ever since the moment I’ve tried the Mugwort Essence. Now with the Mugwort Cream, it adds a layer of calming hydration onto the skin leaving a fresh finish and the feel as if it locks in all the mugwort nutrients delivered to my skin.

“Antibacterial & Anti Inflammatory care solved with this jar of cream!”
My skin easily gets irritated and inflamed because I have acne prone skin. I realized that my skin feels at ease whenever I add mugwort into the routine. I enjoyed the mugwort essence and the sheet mask very much but I wished there to be a cream so that my skin can feel calmed and at ease even after the step of the moisturizer. Ever since I tried the mugwort cream, my skin not only felt hydrated with the good oil and water balance but whenever my skin has been irritated, it really helped to soothe my skin!
