Magnolia reminds me of spring, but yet here I am with a review for this product at the beginning of autumn! It also lies some time back that I used this I’m from Magnolia Wake Essence, but I loved it so much, that I decided to write a review for it now.
I’m from is a Korean brand with the motto “a good cosmetics with a good ingredient”. They are using natural ingredients in their cosmetics and want to be honest and quality provider. They have three promises to their customers, being 1. open composition, which means known ingredients, 2. Honest Farm, meaning honest ingredients with a true origin, and 3. being free of harmful chemicals. I have tried the I’m from Ginseng Serum and the Honey Mask before and enjoyed using both of the products.
The I’m from Magnolia Wake Essence is an essence for brightening and hydration and gives the perfect energy in the morning. As the name suggests, it contains 69% magnolia water from the Sobaek Mountains of Korea. Of course, from the first glance, the packaging is especially attractive. The magnolia pattern and the light pink colors are very pretty and fit perfect for spring, or to give you a spring mood.
What I also love is that this essence is free from parabens, steroids, and artificial coloring- plus I’m from is a cruelty-free brand!
Ther cardboard box is also so pretty and detailed:
Last, but not least, you will find the ingredients listed on the box as well. The I’m from Magnolia Wake Essence contains mainly magnolia extract, but there are also ingredients like Niacinamide (brightening), Sodium hyalulonate and glycerin (hydrating), and a bunch of plant-based ingredients listed.
Magnolia Kobus Branch/Flower/ Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Methyl Gluceth-20, Alcohol, Water, Niacinamide, Dimethicone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Veronica Officinalis Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract, Primula Veris Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Polyquaternium-51, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Methyl Stearoyl Taurate, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance
You can check the ingredients via SkinCarisma, too. The list also contains alcohol and silicones. Both are not a direct problem for me personally, but if you have observed to react sensitively to products containing silicones or alcohol you should avoid this product.
Doesn’t the milk-glass bottle with the pink essence look totally cute?! You can apply the essence using the included dropper attached to the cap. It is advised to use this essence in the morning routine. Simply apply few drops and pat into your skin after cleansing and toning.
I loved the lightness of the essence and the fact that it smelled nice and flowery. I still need to use a moisturizer on top, but the essence makes the skin soft and makes the appearance of the skin more even and bright. I personally used up the I’m from Magnolia Wake Essence in a record time, because I liked it so much.
As you see below, the texture is clear, but not very runny. It leaves also a nice glow but absorbs very quickly and without a greasy feeling or tackiness.

Ich mag Magnolien total gerne und verbinde sie auch mit dem Frühling. Die Wake Essence klingt gut, ich mag solche leichten Texturen auch sehr gerne. Die Marke muss ich mir mal ansehen, die kannte ich bisher nich nicht.

Ohja..ich wünschte man könnte den kalten Winter einfach überspringen und direkt wieder in den Frühling übergehen :D Danke für deinen Kommentar!
Durch dich lerne ich immer wieder neue Marken kennen.
Die Verpackung gefällt mir sehr gut. Ich finde es auch gut, dass die Textur so leicht ist. Ausprobiert habe ich es aber noch nicht.
Die koreanischen Produkte sehen immer so hübsch aus und sollen auch sehr effektiv sein! Das hier klingt auch echt spannend.
Die Essence sieht wirklich total süß aus. Ich kenne sie leider nicht, mag aber generell Produkte mit Magnolienduft sehr sehr gerne, deswegen wäre sie bestimmt etwas für mich. Außerdem finde ich Marken toll, die so transparent mit den Inhaltsstoffen etc. umgehen – sollte meiner Meinung nach heute jeder machen. xxx
I adore the I’m From Honey Mask and have been meaning to try more of their products, and this sounds like a lovely serum! Usually I don’t like alcohol and silicones, but maybe the 2 together will cancel out the dryness/pilling that they individually cause ? Thanks for the review!
