Is the I’m From Fig bOOSTING eSSENCE any good?

The right essence can give your skin that desired chok-chok plumped up look. I really enjoy incorporating a lightweight, yet intense hydrating layer into my skincare routine. Today, I want to share a review about the I’m From Fig Boosting Essence by the K-Beauty brand I’m From with you, that just does that. The product was kindly gifted to me, but as always I’m sharing my honest opinion with you.

What does it do?

The boosting essence is from the most recent Fig Line from I’m From. Fig extract is an antioxidant, that helps to prevent waterloss, fades dark spots, improves skin texture and calm redness. The essence comes in a high quality glass bottle and contains a whopping 62.7% fig extract. It claims to be hydrating, anti-oxidant and help to form a moisture barrier, while having anti-aging benefits.

I pour some of the product into the palm of my hand, lightly distribute it on my fingers and gently pat it in. You could do several layers, but for me one layer is enough and I don’t want to apply a lot of this precious product at one time, so it’ll last longer.
