@Cissy63  Yup, definitely a fun one! Can't go wrong with unicorns! πŸ¦„πŸ˜ƒ

This I’m From Mugwort Sheet Mask is a spectacularly soothing sheet mask for sensitive (or any type of) skin! 🌿 

11.11.2022 M - Mugwort.jpg

 

Spoiler

The super soft, ultra thin, 100% plant-based I’m From Mugwort Sheet Mask is soaked but not overflowing in a clear, slightly viscous, light brown tinted, faintly herbal scented essence consisting of 91.45% !!! pure mugwort essence

 

Adherence was beautiful, with the softness and thinness of the material lending itself to that much beloved second skin feel. Fit along the perimeter is standard - similar to most Korean sheet masks - too long at the chin/jawline and just a smidge too wide at the temples. Openings for the eyes and mouth were well positioned and sized. 

 

As with other sheet masks, I left this one on for an half hour. The thin layer of essence remaining on the oilier parts of my face absorbs quickly, without tack or stickiness. My skin looks and feels soft, smooth, hydrated, and supple, with a nice bounce to it. What redness I had around the sides of my nose and on my cheeks appears soothed and diminished, while my overall complexion looks refreshed, brightened, and more awake

 

This is truly an outstanding sheet mask. The I’m From mugwort line has a wash off mask as well as an essence that I’ve been meaning to try, and my experience with this sheet mask makes me want to get a hold of each of those products asap, along with another of this sheet mask! A definite repurchase! Highly recommend.

@itsfi 

Wow, that's a really high percentage of something other than water. I need to get my hand on that.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Ok convince no more,, I have to try this one @itsfi 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

This sounds like a big winner @itsfi 

I've never heard of this line, or even mugwort specifically for skin soothing or redness calming. 

 

Love masks that help out and reduce redness. This sounds wonderful! Great info, thank you!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@CynthieLu, soothing masks are always good to have on hand. πŸ‘πŸΌ Mugwort has a few different names - artemisia and wild wormwood are a couple of them. It’s a skincare ingredient that’s been around on K-Beauty for a while; I’ve only become familiar with it in the last couple of years. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I'm going to commit it to memory πŸ˜‹ when I am out and about if I see any in anything with it in it.

100% yes. Always a good idea to have soothing remedies just in case you need them. ✨️ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi 

My bf's sister loves the I'm From things. I'll have to see if she has this one; it sounds like a nice soothing mask. Is the mochi filled with mugwort?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@nuinui933, I haven’t tried everything in the I’m From line but what I have tried, I’ve enjoyed. πŸ˜ƒ This was wonderfully soothing; my skin liked it. πŸ‘πŸΌ I thought the mochi was filled with some sort of mugwort paste l, which would have been a first for me, but it turns out, that the mochi has mugwort powder in it. It’s filled with red bean paste. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  This sounds wonderful for sensitive skin πŸ˜€

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Cissy63, it is! Mugwort is known for its soothing properties and the soft and thin  material do not irritate the skin. πŸ‘πŸΌ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  Well, you definitely sold me on this one! It sounds amazing! πŸ™Œ 91.45% is kinda an odd number though πŸ™ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

This is a good one @Shosh85πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸŒΏπŸ’š I think the offbeat percentage just makes it more interesting. Ha! I've come up with different theories in my head as to the reason for it - nothing to back it up other than just theories in my head. πŸ˜† A part of me thinks there must be a reason for it, but at the same time, another part of me hopes it's just something that happened to work out. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

A while back I had gotten a sample of the Lush Beauty Sleep mask with an order. I think I got a bad batch. It looks absolutely nothing like the pictures on the website. It's really dry and this is what it looks like...I like pairing it with the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer 5 oz That stuff is amazing. If I'm ever near a Lush store I'll have to see what the mask looks like there before I ever order a full size. It smells absolutely divine though. 

 

It looks like acne all over lol. And zero of the purple mask.It looks like acne all over lol. And zero of the purple mask.Lush beauty Mask.jpg

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian is it supposed to be mixed with a little of water? I've never heard of this one before

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Nope! lushusa dot com /face/masks/beauty-sleep/9999960254 dot html

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

No I would not use that product @Samtian!  Something is wrong with it.  I have to agree with you about PTR. Excellent πŸ˜€

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian  Lush definitely has some nice smelling products! - too bad that was all this one had to offer πŸ˜•

Love that PTR mask - it's one of my most favorites! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Shosh85 Lush smells too good for my wallet. The Pumpkin ah HG for sure.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Yes to that PTR pumpkin enzyme mask @Samtian - love that stuff! πŸ’– That's too bad about the Lush mask. It does look very dry. I wonder if it's just gone bad - many of their masks have a very short shelf life. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Possibly, it looked like that when I got it though. I'm trying to power through it lol.
