Brand

I’m From is based in South Korea, it is a sister cosmetic company of Skin & Lab and Chica Y Chiteo. The ingredients are spotlight for this brvà, I’m From lists the origin và farm name from where it was harvested. I love sầu the transparency, but it was difficult khổng lồ find other information on this brand.

Product Claims

Here are the product claims from Wishtrend:

The premium whitening water gel is optimal for oily skin where a cream type product could feel a bit heavy. The gel is rapidly absorbed by the skin, and the cooling sensation helps lớn quickly calm redness. In addition, as certified by the FDA for its whitening function, it transforms the skin to appear brighter & more clear for a radiant look.

I think I’m From did a number of things right while kinh doanh this product! One skin type is specified, the ingredient các mục is definitely catered towards oily và acne prone skin types. I am unsure if the exact ingredient used in this formula is FDA approved, but the high concentrations of antioxidants và niacinamide are likely to produce pigmentation lightening và complexion brightening effects.

Application

Appearance

This is a semi-transparent gel that feels more like a cream gel at initial touch, but it completely melts into lớn a watery consistency when applied onto lớn the skin. It does absorb well into lớn the skin, but it can sit on top of the skin if too much is applied.

*

Scent

The smell is very subtle & no artificial fragrance is added. The notes that can be detected are very earthy, but it does dissipate.

Packaging

This gel comes in glass jar packaging with a screw-off lid. The plastic lid is thiông chồng & feels much more durable than my experiences with the April Skin moisturizer, featuring my constant fear of shattering the packaging. The I’m From gel does come with a spatula for scoping out the hàng hóa, but I can never be bothered with it.

Performance

I ended up loving this moisturizer, but it was a rough start.

I test most new cosmetics in both morning & evening routines to see how it will fit best inkhổng lồ my personal skincare routine. I had a reaction when I used this moisturizer in the mornings, I got painful và flaky patches of dryness around my mouth. I have sầu dry và dehydrated skin so I am accustomed to lớn the occasional skin flakiness, but I never experienced it in this area of my face và I never had such red, irritated flaking prior to this.

*

I began researching the ingredients only to lớn discover over 70% of this ingredient các mục consisted of an antioxidant with AHA-lượt thích capabilities. If you’re unfamiliar with chemical exfoliation, it is a no-no to lớn wear in sun exposure và not typically recommended for morning routines. I switched khổng lồ only using this moisturizer in the evenings và I have never had a problem with it since then. I bởi vì live sầu in the mediterranean so I experience higher UV exposure than many other places in the world so my reaction may be very location specific.

I gave my skin a break for over a month to recuperate from the irritation before diving into this moisturizer again, which is when I discovered my love for it! I was having issues with congested pores in my nose area at the time và I noticed within days of reintroducing this moisturizer lớn my routine that my pores appeared clearer. My overall complexion looked more even & brighter, I think this moisturizer could be a great option for acne-prone or inflamed skin types.

This moisturizer does layer well with other skincare products, but it is easy to lớn go overboard with this moisturizer. I am used to lớn slathering on the moisturizer at night because I have such dry skin, but a light hvà is required for this water gel or it never seemed to absorb into my skin. If I went in too heavy with this gel, a grey layer would just sit on top of my face. It still felt lightweight, but it was obvious there was excess sản phẩm just sitting on my face.

Misc. Ingredient Notes

It is important khổng lồ note that the first ingredient makes up 70% of the ingredient danh mục with different forms of the same ingredient making an appearance twice more. The rest of the ingredient menu makes up 30% of the ingredient so these will be far lesser players in this gel. This moisturizer is packed with antioxidants & anti-inflammatories, there are a number of astringents as well though I found this was still moisturizing for my dry skin.

There is nothing of concern that I notice when looking over the ingredient danh mục, but the dominant ingredient has chemical exfoliation effects so it may not be ikhuyến mãi for daytime wear. I have worn this indoors during the day without any issues, but I obviously has issues when I would go outdoors with it as seen in the performance section.

Value

Price: $26.60 / 75ml, $10.64 per Ounce

This price is higher than I am typically willing to lớn pay for a moisturizer, particularly one that does not contain retinol. However, I vì think this price tag is justifiable. This moisturizer contains AHA antioxidants so there is a chemical exfoliating effect. I am not acne prone so I vì chưng not have lớn be as picky with my moisturizers, but I know this skincare step can be such a challenge for sensitive or oily skin types. This is a unique moisturizer & I think this is a great option for anyone that struggles with the standard ultra-rich creams.

This moisturizer is easily accessible online in East Asia và North America, but it has been more difficult to lớn find in Europe. It is not impossible, but there are few online retailers that will ship khổng lồ Europe & this moisturizer is definitely worth the effort!

Overall

Rating: 4 / 5

Despite some initial hiccups with this product, I grew khổng lồ love it during the hotter seasons. My skin felt supple, my complexion appeared brighter, my pores did not appear as dark or clogged. It is a unique cosmetic, but it rivals the price of Sephora cosmetics và it is more expensive that I am willing lớn pay regularly for a moisturizer that does not contain retinal.
