Mugwort and Honey: Treasured Elixirs in Korean Skincare Across Centuries

Mugwort and honey, revered for their multifaceted benefits, are timeless staples in Korean skincare. From alleviating sensitive skin to addressing acne concerns, they provide deep nourishment and hydration. Amid the opulent canvas of beauty rituals, noble women during the Korean Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910) embraced the pursuit of clear, unadorned skin, as chronicled in the historical masterpiece "Gyuhap Chongseo." Mugwort, a healing herb, boasts antibacterial, anti-fungal, and skin-protective qualities. Abundant in antioxidants, it shields the skin from free radicals and serves as a natural anti-inflammatory. Simultaneously, honey, celebrated for its antibacterial prowess, lends a soothing touch while moisturizing the skin. In the Joseon era, women prized natural makeup and a serene demeanor, attributing clear, soft skin and glossy hair to inner beauty. The Yeoyonggukjeon, a Joseon-era manual on women's care, details around 18 different cosmetic types, reflecting the meticulous attention to beauty. Today, the legacy endures as mugwort and honey remain sought-after ingredients in modern Korean skincare products, gracing masks and cleansers with their timeless efficacy.

A slightly viscous texture but absorbs really nicely on my skin. It has a hint of sweet floral smell which is barely noticeable when I apply it on my face. 🙋‍♀️My thoughts I LOVE THIS. This is the first product that introduced me to propolis and it has definitely set a standard for me. It absorbs relatively fast, performed as it claims, and after using it my face became less dull and more glowy. I am very pleased with the performance of the ampoule which is why this bottle is actually a repurchase! While it sounds like an amazing product, it does have its downsides.

My starskin ingredient of the year 2021 “cica “ by DR jart ,Cicapair TigerGrass Serum. What is cica basically? Cica/Kotu gola /Centella Asiatica aka Tiger grass , its an medicinal plant known for its antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties,which makes it to repair and soothe skin ! Additionally, centella asiatica has been used to address a wide range of dry skin-related conditions thanks to its ability to improve skin hydration.its a leafy green herb rich in fatty acids, vitamins and amino acids , i might fall short of words because of the word limit here! My review This is one of the luxurious serums i have used on my face , from its packaging , to the result it showed ! Its lightweight which makes it perfect for daily use , and has strong lavender smell(👎🏻) I decided to use it on my face when my skin was at its worst , skin barrier was almost damaged ,so basically took a risk . it helped me alot with the dryness (caused by using the actives) ,redness , overall gave my skin anew life the glow was real Since then its a must have in my regime, it instantly hydrated &brightened my skin! ⛔️Cons 👎🏻Mght not suit people who are allergic to alcohol or essential oils (since it contains both) 👎🏻Bit pricey , as there are many cica serums having high % of centella asiatica present in them & at a very less price! 💰Priced at 190 SR from @cultbeauty Will i repurchase✅ Ofcourse i will but meanwhile i have purchased cica from another brand , ill go with that first! ⚠️IMPORTANT If you want to incorporate cica in your skincare regime , make sure you look for other ingredients too , cos some cica based products are particularly made for dry skin accompanied with other ingredients that can cause breakouts among oily ones For eg La roche posay cicaplast baume is particularly made for dry skin type

This is a fantastic serum for oily acne prone skin. the texture is a mix between watery and gel. I like to pair it with different products like my vitamin C, because it is soothing serum I can use it in the same routine with active ingredients. It doesn’t have any fragrance

Can't get enough of @ens_jinjungsung Omega Vegan Vita Serum! I tried this awesome serum back when it was 30ml. & so glad they have renewed this to a whooping 150ml.! When we love an item, the bigger the bottle the better! 😊 Aside from being bigger, the formula was also upgraded! Vitamin C( Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbic Acid)& Sea Buckthorn are added to enhance brightening & cell-rejuvenating properties. That is on top of the plant-based, superfood ingredients that are so rich in Omega - 3 which include - Oat Meal Extract, Blueberry Extract, Garlic Extract, Sweet Almond Extract, and Green Tea Extract. *Omega-3 is effective with dehydrated skin, eczema, acne & hyperpigmentation. Other key ingredients - 7 types of Hyaluronic Acid,6 Peptides complex, Beta Glucan, Ceramide NP & Evening Primrose oil. Based on the ingredients alone, it is an all-around serum that helps address different skin concerns! I mean this is like a supercharge vitamins for our skin! First, I love the glass packaging with the gold cap, it looks luxurious! (though not travel-friendly, I would not mind transferring it to a plastic container) I didn't have any issues with how the products dispense but it would be nicer if it's in a pump bottle. 😊 This feels soothing right away, with the texture similar to emulsion type, silky & smooth. Absorbs beautifully without being sticky, plumps & calms my skin! I love using this during Tret nights & so good when skin is 'flushed' from the hot weather. It fits any routine easily! I love how it balanced & helps my skin be in a healthy, glowy state, we all want that right?! This is a winner for me- the formula, size & price! ($29.99 at Amazon) I'll gladly recommend & buy it myself! Going straight to my HG list!
