Skincare that hydrates and brightens my complexion is always at the top of my list, so I couldn’t wait to use this wash-off mask. The fact that the I’m From Ginseng Mask warms up your skin left me so intrigued too!

Product Features

The I’m From Ginseng Mask promises to nourish the skin as it leaves the skin hydrated with increased elasticity. This all comes from Korea's 6-year-old Red Ginseng Extract that’s used.

What’s really key in the effectiveness of this mask is the natural heat generated by the Ginseng. It opens pores, allowing impurities to be flushed out all while replenishing skin with lots of nutrients. This helps to hydrate your skin and also enhances the absorption of active ingredients.

The high concentration of nutrients in this mask works wonders for nourishing your skin. The Ginseng extract tightens the skin, improving elasticity and helps combat the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. While we’re talking about anti-aging, Ginseng is a powerhouse in that department! It's packed with antioxidants that purify the skin, to help create a clearer and glowing complexion.

Personal Review

I loved the scent of this mask, it’s subtly sweet, almost like a light golden syrup. With the consistency of liquid honey I found that the mask was very sticky. Speaking from experience, ensure all of your hair is tied back securely. Even sweep those little baby hairs out of the way!

As soon as I applied the mask, I could feel it gently warming up on my skin. One scoop using the supplied bamboo spatula was enough to apply a generous layer over my face. The mask continued to have the warming effect for the full 15 minutes I left it on, but it feels super gentle - nothing too hot or uncomfortable! 

Once I washed the mask off with warm water, I followed my usual evening skincare routine of a Vitamin C serum, evening moisturiser and to lock in even more hydration I applied a face oil. This is a wonderful mask to use before bed, as I found it instantly relaxed me.

I have been using this mask a couple of times a week as it’s so hydrating and gentle on my skin. Afterwards my skin felt supple and nourished, and in the morning after my skin looked really refreshed. In particular, the skin under my eyes didn’t look as tired and puffy in the morning like they normally do!

I love how it’s formulated without harmful additives or fragrances. I found this mask is gentle yet potent. I’ll be using this mask all winter to combat dry skin caused by the cold air and an office with a heat pump, which I find really dehydrating.

I’d recommend this wash-off mask as it’s a lovely all-rounder! It’s going to be a great addition to your regime if you're dealing with dullness, dryness, uneven skin tone, or premature aging.
