Happy self-care Sunday. Today I am reviewing the newest mask from the Korean beauty brand, I’m From. Packed with fig powder, this face scrub gently melts away dead skin cells, while black sugar gently exfoliates impurities to reveal fresh, clean & moisturized skin. This vegan-friendly product works it’s magic in 10-15 minutes.

The brand I’m From is known for designing lines of products with some of the best natural ingredients found in Korea. The brand is known for its farm-to-table lines such as their rice line, ginseng line, mugwort line & honey line. Each product line contains different natural ingredients to target different skin concerns & skin types. The fig line was released by the brand this spring.
Fig enzyme, which mildly, but effectively breaks down dead skin cells; Brown sugar, a natural moisturizer, delivers light, but rich moisture to the skin while removing skin impurities as well as dead skin.
Fig (Ficus Carica) is an Asian species of flowering plant. Figs possess high levels of polyphenols, omega fatty acids & vitamins (vitamin A, B1, & B2). Figs are also high Vitamin C which can promote exfoliation & elimination of surface skin cells, which helps refresh & renew skin. Because of the high levels of these nutrients, figs are known for their significant antioxidant properties. Fig extract, derived from the fruit of the fig tree is moisturizing & nourishing. Figs in skincare have been shown to enhance the skin’s hydration by preventing water loss. They are said to lighten dark spots, improving skin tone. They are also said to calm any redness in the skin.

Wash-off masks are generally recommended to be used after first cleansing & before getting into your skincare routine for clear skin. This will help to cleanse and purify the skin so that your next skincare steps with active ingredients & hydrants can better reach the deeper layers of the skin. Apply the mask evenly on the face or on the areas where you need extra exfoliation. Leave it on 10-15 minutes & rinse off with lukewarm water. This scrub mask works well in conjunction with others I’m From masks.

I am a big fan of I’m From’s Honey Mask as well as their Mugwort Mask, so I was excited to receive this Fig Scrub Mask. I tend to shy away from physical exfoliators because of my sensitive skin, but this is a brand that I trust to be gentle & as irritant-free as possible. I was also excited to try this because I was unaware that figs were used in skincare products 🤷🏼♀️. I enjoy learning new things, so I’ve really enjoyed learning about the benefits of figs for your skin.
Figs are known to improve the circulation, combating signs of aging, prevent wrinkles, rejuvenate & refresh the skin, & make skin soft & supple. Yes, these are all things I covet for my skin!
This mask is packaged like most of the other I’m From masks & reminds me of something I’d purchase at a farmer’s market, which is a perfect theme for the brand. The mask is in a heavy, glass jar with a black lid & the brand provides a large scoop for retrieving the product from the jar. These jars are perfect for recycling & I’ve used them for all kinds of things throughout my house. The label is raisin colored & made of recyclable paper. On the label, is cream writing. Overall, this mask has a lovely presentation. The mask has a delicious scent that makes you want to eat it! It smells like warm raisins, sunshine & brown sugar with a touch of caramel. The fragrance is quite noticeable, but not overpowering. It did not bother my sensitive skin or sensitive nose, but it did make me hungry.
I really enjoy the texture of this product. You can definitely feel the brown sugar crystals, but they are finely ground & did not irritate my skin provided I didn’t massage too vigorously. I also like that you can see actual pieces of fig in the scrub. It makes you feel as if there is a fairly substantial amount of fig in the product. This mask washed off quite easily & it left a beautiful emollient feel to my skin. Unlike most physical exfoliators, this mask did not leave my skin feeling tight & dry. Instead, it left my skin feeling conditioned & hydrated. It really helped to get rid of a few dry patches that I had on my skin from Tretinoin treatment. My pores looked smaller & it appears to have removed some of the blackheads I have on the side of my nose. I really love the finish this mask leaves on the skin & I think it’d be perfect before makeup application. I’m also in love with how well this mask re-texturized my skin. After using this mask, my skin was so soft & smooth I just wanted to stroke it (but I can’t- damn COVID-19 & the “don’t touch your face” recommendations!).
I use this mask about once per week. If I didn’t have sensitive skin, I can see myself using it more often simply for the conditioned feel to my skin. This product definitely helps to achieve that glass skin look. This is a lovely product that I would happily repurchase.
