Currently, I’m using some products from Wishtrend in my regular skincare routine, and I enjoy them a lot. So, if you need some shopping inspiration, here are my current picks for you. Of course, all of these are cruelty-free:

Cruelty-free Skincare Favorites from Wishtrend

I’m from Rice Toner (currently on sale for 18.20$)

The number one pick, that I can recommend really a lot, is the I’m From Rice Toner. I will review it this week on my blog, too, because I’ve almost finished using it. This milky toner is a staple in my skincare routine, and I will probably repurchase it on the next occasion. It contains 77.78% of rice extract from Jeju which helps with your skin’s elasticity. Apart from rice extract, it contains Niacinamide and other plant-based ingredients like rice bran extract, Japanese elm bark extract, common purslane extract, and amaranthus caudatus seed extract. The texture differs from the typically watery toners, not only because of the milky appearance, but also it feels slightly creamy, too. I’m using it as the second toner in my morning routine.

Klairs Fundamental Watery Oil Drop (currently on sale for 24.80$)

This oil-like moisturizing serum combines Jeju Green Tea Water, Bifida and Rice Ferment Extract and Peptide and feels rich and nourishing, without being greasy or sticky like a facial oil. I think, this is especially great for oily skin types, who have dehydrated skin, and don’t want to use facial oils. I think it is also great for the summer season for dry skin types, for additional hydration in the daytime routine. It gives a subtle but healthy glow, too.


Cruelty-free Skincare Favorites from Wishtrend

Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream (currently on sale for 20$)

This calming and soothing cream containing Guaiazulene is not only famous for the signature light blue color of the cream, but it is also a very thick and rich texture and can be greatly used as occlusive cream as the last step of your nighttime skincare. In the official instructions, it is said, that you can use it on the desired areas in a thick layer. I love using this cream all over my face. It has a wonderful effect and I also reviewed it previously on my blog >>here<<.


Cruelty-free Skincare Favorites from Wishtrend

By Wishtrend Natural Vitamin 21.5% Enhancing Sheet Mask (currently on sale for 2.25$ per mask)

Hands down, I love the by Wishtrend Vitamin C line. I’ve used 3-4 bottles of the serum already and you can find my (old) review >>here<<. But I can also recommend this Vitamin C mask from the same line as gentle in-between vitamin kick for your skin. It’s a very thin sheet mask soaked heavily in essence with 21.5% of a natural vitamin complex (Vitamin Tree Water & Boseong Green Tea Water) and provides a simple and gentle vitamin care for sensitive skin types, for those avoiding the highly concentrated vitamin C serum. The mask has only 12 ingredients, too, which I love.

I have used many more products from various brands sold on Wishtrend and you can also browse through my archives for more reviews and impressions. Also, although I use my affiliate links, which give me a small commission if any purchases are made through these links, I would not write this post, If I’m not really loving these products. Through my skincare journey within the last years, Wishtrend and the products they offer have always been really great for my skin and I enjoyed trying out new products from their brands. They have so many innovative ideas and have developed and improved so much through all the years, and they definitively deserve to be known all around the world. So head over to Wishtrend and have fun shopping!

Review: I’m from Mugwort Sheet Mask

19. April 2021


If you follow my Instagram you know that I love using my sheet masks every other day. Recently, I used this I’m from Mugwort Sheet Mask from Wishtrend, and since it was my first product from the I’m from Mugwort line I wanted to share my impression with you.

I'm from Mugwort Sheet Mask

I’m from is a Korean brand with the motto “a good cosmetics with a good ingredient”. I’m from is using natural ingredients in their cosmetics, and they want to be an honest and quality providing brand. They have three promises to their customers, being 1. open composition, which means transparent ingredients, 2. Honest Farm, meaning honest ingredients with a true origin, and 3. being free of harmful chemicals.

I'm from Mugwort Sheet Mask

The I’m from Mugwort Sheet Mask comes in a simple sachet with the signature mud-green color of the I’m from Mugwort skincare line. There is an essence, cream, mask, and spot treatment from this line, as well., but I haven’t tried them yet.

I'm from Mugwort Sheet Mask

This sheet mask comes with 91.45% Mugwort essence from the region of Ganghwa in South Korea. Apart from this key ingredient, the ingredients list is not very long either, which I appreciate a lot:

Artemisia Princeps (Mugwort) Extract, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Methlypropanediol, Cordyceps Sinensis (Caterpillar fungus) Extract, 1,2 Hexanediol, Capryly Glycol, Allantoin, Zanthoxylum Piperitum (Japanese Pepper) Fruit Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Panthenol, Pulsatilla Koreana (Korean pasque flower) Extract, Carbomer, Arginine

Mugwort Extract – Artemisia Princeps Extract

So, what are the benefits of Mugwort extract after all: skincare products containing Artemisia Princeps extract are known to improve dry skin symptoms by improving the barrier repairing effects of the skin by upregulating antioxidant enzymes. Moreover, mugwort extract is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and has a long tradition in Asian traditional medicine for all its benefits. A good starting point for further reading might be >this publication< by Hirano et al. from 2017.

I'm from Mugwort Sheet Mask

The mask itself has a thin fabric, which is thoroughly soaked with the essence. The essence itself is clear with a light green/yellowish color. According to the description on Wishtrend, the product has a pH of ~5.8. Moreover, it is free from ethanol,  silicone, steroids, artificial coloring, and artificial fragrance. The mask is vegan and cruelty-free. The mask had good adhering properties and didn’t slide around on my face while wearing it. I used it for 20 minutes before removing it, and though a lot of the essence was absorbed by my skin, it wasn’t dried out completely. There was enough left-over essence in the sachet to be used on the neck and arms. Below, you can see a picture of the mask after I used it for 20 minutes.

My impression was, that my skin soaked up as much as possible and felt so hydrated after using it. Also, I had the feeling the skin was calmed down, as well. The fabric had a nice feeling on the skin and was not bothering me while wearing it. This mask is definitely something that is worth a try and although it might be expensive compared to or sheet masks, I can imagine repurchasing this one. A single mask retails for 4 US$, it is also available in a box with 20 pieces for 40 US$. You can also check my Coupons & Discount page for additional codes to use during your purchase on Wishtrend. They usually have monthly discount codes of 10 %, or you can use my referral code C0D76CCE. You will get a 10% discount on your first purchase.
