I’m From Mugwort Mask Review
Updated: Jun 5
The I’m From Mugwort Mask is a healing and calming treatment for red, irritated, and acne-prone skin. It typically comes in a jar and is sold on eBay, Amazon, YesStyle, and Wishtrend. I have a smaller sized tube.
The star ingredient in this gel wash off mask is mugwort - a traditional healing herb that is used both internally and externally (but please do not eat the mask). Mugwort grows in Asia, North America, and Northern Europe. It is full of antioxidants and has a cooling and soothing effect, which is why it’s been traditionally applied topically as a burn relief treatment.
The I’m From Mugwort Mask uses a high concentration (2.1%) of quality mugwort grown in Ganghwa, Korea. The green chunks that can be seen in the mask base are ground pieces of the plant and, therefore, vary in size and shape.
How to use:
Apply a thick layer on clean skin
Rinse off after 5-10 minutes
Can be used daily, if needed
The full sized jar is on my wish list. Very, very high on my wish list! The tube came as one of the free gifts with my Wishtrend purchase during their Black Friday sale in 2018 and I wasn’t initially too excited about it. I’ve never heard of the product until that point, but who doesn’t love a freebie?
I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry-to-normal everything else. I’ve been very fortunate to not have many breakouts, even as a teenager. However, if I do get a blemish or a scratch or any other irritation, it shows up bright red right away (because I’m so pale). Because of that, I always stock items that are soothing and calming.
I am beyond impressed with the I’m From Mugwort Mask. It works so well and so fast! I haven’t used it daily, but I’ve done an “intensive” course using it several times within the same week. After the very first application, the redness is significantly reduced. I typically apply wash off masks while soaking in the tub, and the warm, moist air pretty much “robs” me of that cooling sensation that mugwort promises, but it’s not something I stress about. Once rinsed off, I feel a slight soothing barrier on the skin.
This mask is somewhat similar in effect to an Innisfree one I had before (review here), but I think it works quicker and more effectively. It does have a pronounced herbal smell (I assume that is what mugwort smells like), but it’s not unpleasant or off putting. I like products with natural herbal aromas as they have a certain traditional medicinal feel to them.
Bottom line - when I’m placing the next order of Korean cosmetics (read about where I like to shop in this article), I’m adding a jar of this to my cart. You can read my other wash off mask reviews here.
