Mugwort aka Artemisia is used in skincare products designed to soothe sensitive skin, treat dry skin and acne. It's also antibacterial and antifungal. Full of vitamin E and other antioxidants, it protects, nourishes and hydrates the skin🌿 This Mugwort Essence from i'm from contains 100% mugwort and is a great product for calming my skin, especially whenever it feels irritated or when I'm having painful breakouts. I like how the watery texture is ideal for layering and I've had no problems combining it with all of my other skincare products 💚 The herbal mugwort scent is thankfully not that strong, unlike the brands Mugwort Mask which I hated for its way too strong scent, and I've had no problems with this product at all! Had already tried the smaller size before purchasing the full-sized product; I'm almost through with the bottle and can see myself re-purchasing this more than often

~Gifted, but opinions are my own~ #pr #gifted #sponsored 🌞PRODUCT AND SIZING: 107 Chaga Jelly Low pH Cleanser, 120 ml 🎁PRESENTATION: This cruelty-free cleanser comes in a pink plastic tube with a flip-off cap. 💦STAR INGREDIENTS: It is “formulated with special 7-year aged vinegar, chaga mushroom extract, and ten different botanical extracts. The small particles you see are green tea leaf pieces for mild exfoliation. 🌺TEXTURE and SCENT: This cleanser is soft jelly-like and has a great green scent (maybe coming from German chamomile flower, paper mulberry root, apple, Japanese camellia leaf, and green tea leaf?). It does not contain any synthetic fragrance. 👨‍🦱 MY THOUGHTS: This is a popular cleanser I have seen great reviews for. Even before I started my IG account, I purchased a few of these for my friends with sensitive skin (I don’t want to buy something that could be irritating!) after reading many positive reviews. This smells like I am walking through a forest. It lathers well (not too much, and not too little). The small tea leaf pieces exfoliate gently and are soft on my skin. The only thing I don’t like about this cleanser is that when I wash this off, my face continues to feel a bit too slippery, and I don’t know when to stop washing my face (you know when you are almost done with washing bubbles off your face, it feels slightly different so you know you can stop). Some people may like that, though. 👐 PAIRING: I have used this with various products, including Parnell toner pads, 107 Mist Serum, Ohui eye cream, Ohui Age Recovery cream, Nineless sunscreen. Others may have different experiences based on skin types, products they use, environmental conditions, etc.

As for its packaging, it comes in a thick frosted bottle with a dropper. How to use: • Pump an adequate amount and spread or gently tap all over the face as a daily serum until fully absorbed. Thoughts and Impressions: My personal favorite. A texture care serum with the fermentation synergy action of Galacyomyces-Bifida that provides natural skin strength that smoothes and softens. Despite having a cloudy texture, this product doesn't feel tacky when applied. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in strengthening their skin barrier and enhancing skin texture since it does assist to improve skin texture.

Lightweighted yet very moisturizing cream. Works like a charm with combinations of “birch juice moisturizing toner” and “birch juice moisturizing serum”. The set was able to treat my long-lasting irritation around nose, i never had to suffer again 💯

[ Anua Heartleaf Soothing Line ] Hi gorgeous, Just to be honest I have 2 ingredients that always keep in my skincare routine, Centella Asiatica and Heartleaf (Houttuynia Cordata)because both are powerful soothing ingredients and today I want to share my thoughts about the 𝗛𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗳 77% 𝗦𝗼𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗧𝗼𝗻𝗲𝗿❤️😍 𝗛𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗳 77% 𝗦𝗼𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗧𝗼𝗻𝗲𝗿 This is a moisturizing toner that helps to soothe the skin irritations and protects the skin.

🧡P.Calm Cato Cream review🧡 I received this product for free from P.Calm in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. Thank you so much again P.Calm for choosing me as a brand ambassador and sending me your great products to try! It’s been over a month since I’ve incorporated P.Calm products in my routine. All of them are working great for my skin, but the Cato Cream is my absolute favourite from the whole line! P.Calm Cato Cream is vegan hypoallergenic moisturizer formulated to repair damaged skin barrier, provide long lasting moisture, brighten the skin and reduce appearance of fine line and wrinkles. The Cato Cream is suitable for all skin types as it takes care of both dry U-zone and oily T-zone due to it’s double-biopolymer structure that allows pores to breath. ⭐️Key ingredients: ✅ Cato Barrier Complex (ceramides, cholesterol, fatty acids) ✅Glutathione ✅Bisabool ✅T-CA (Tea Tree + Cica) ✅Glycerin ✅Niacinamide ✅Allantoin ✅Squalane ⭐️Price: ~49 USD (80 ml) ⭐️My experience: I am loving absolutely everything about this moisturizer! It’s lightweight, lotion-like texture spreads and absorbs easily without leaving any sticky or greasy residue. It is fragrance-free, non-irritating and works perfectly for my oily acne prone skin. It leaves my skin deeply hydrated without feeling heavy and makes it look supple and bouncy. I am a big fan of exfoliation and sometimes I overdo it a bit, but this moisturizer fixes my occasionally compromised skin barrier in no time. Since incorporating this cream in my routine my complexion looks healthier and more radiant. I am also finding it quite soothing. It does seem to help with persistent redness around my nose making it a bit less noticeable. All in all, it’s an excellent moisturizer for strengthening the skin barrier and I would totally recommend it to everyone regardless of skin type and skin concerns.

This serum does a good job in calming my skin down after i do a laser treatment. My skin is less red and calmer when using this. Outside of post laser, it doesn't do much for me as i guess i don't really have a need to reduce any redness. I'm not wowed by it overall.
