I'm from. . . Ganghwa Island, South Korea! The Mugwort Essence is one of I'm From's best-selling toners and for all the right reasons. This essence consists of 100% Mugwort Extract. Mugwort has been long revered in South Korea for its detoxifying properties. It is used to calm irritated skin and treat acne while providing a soothing effect. This one ingredient essence is gentle on sensitive skin and is easily absorbed by the skin for lasting moisture.

After Cleansing and toning, dispense an adequate amount onto the face and spread evenly, focusing on areas that need more help. For extra effect, soak cotton pads with the mugwort essence and apply it to the face as a mask. Let it sit for 5 minutes then remove. Pat the remaining essence into the skin.

I use this after cleansing my skin in the morning and night. I put some in the palm of my hand and start slapping/applying it on my face. When my fungal acne looks irritated (esp after wearing masks bc of covid) I soak thin cotton pads into the essence for a make-shift mask. This has definitely helped with some skin textural and redness issues.
I have combo-dry skin, so I have different product needs depending on the season. In the summer I want something lightweight and simple because my skin gets so sensitive to the heat that I break out and develop rashes. At first the smell was a bit surprising but it smells like herbal medicine which I actually like. The texture is lightweight but hydrating. Not hydrating enough for the winter for me, but with two thin layers of it and a gel moisturizer and sunscreen on top, I am ready for the day. The only drawback is that I feel like I'm using it up really fast and it is quite expensive. Get it during a sale if that's the case, or use your cupidpoints. I have acne-prone skin and this did not flare it up at all, but I wouldn't say that it helped with reducing my redness. It is soothing though and I love that it's only one ingredient. Will definitely repurchase.
I love using this toner with DIY masks. After using this before bed, twice already, I woke up with clearer looking skin than the night before. The toner is also great to use with my hands directly on my face. This does not cause any breakouts or irritation. I like the herbal scent as well. I have oily skin and this has been great for me.
I know everyine loves this but I find it just ok? It's not as soothing/calming as the Missha one and it's not particularly hydrating so for me personally it's just alright.
