I’M FROM Rice
A staple in many dishes worldwide, rice can be considered a well-known ingredient regardless of where you are. Being one of the best Korean skincare ingredients that have been used for centuries to smooth, brighten and illuminate skin, rice can be incorporated easily into any step of your beauty routine. In addition, you can safely mix and match rice with other skincare ingredients including hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, AHA skincare, or other gentle exfoliators.
I’M FROM rice toner, rice serum, rice cream and im from rice mask are made with gentle formulation that works by revitalizing dull, tired or lifeless looking skin. The result is fresh, lively complexion that appears luminous and glowing without the need for makeup!
I’M FROM Honey
Who knew that this precious liquid gold from the bees could provide our skin with numerous benefits? We believe that honey is an underrated natural skin remedy because this single ingredient can benefit all skin types. Im from honey is made with real honey and propolis from Jiri mountain, which is packed with antibacterial properties to combat inflammation, acne-causing bacteria while restoring the skin’s elasticity with a healthy-looking glow. Honey is also a natural humectant which means that draws in and retains adequate moisture to keep your skin well balanced without greasiness.
The most popular product from this line is im from honey mask. Made with 37% real honey, this sweet-smelling, indulgent and smooth mask pack helps soften rough patches, improve skin elasticity and calms breakouts. How to use im from honey mask? Simply spread an adequate amount onto cleansed skin using I’M FROM Silicon Mask Brush. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes, or even up to 30 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with water. Your skin will be left feeling supple, smooth and bouncy to the touch!
I’M FROM Ginseng
Skin aging is an inevitable process that everyone will go through, but who says you have to look your age? Maintain your skin’s youthfulness by preventing and combating the first signs of premature aging with im from ginseng line. Made with red ginseng containing powerful anti wrinkle properties to firm and lift your skin, incorporating im from ginseng serum, ginseng eye cream and ginseng mask can help stimulate collagen production to rebuild your skin barrier while increasing blood circulation to your skin.
When should I start anti aging skincare? You can start your anti aging skincare routine even as early as your mid-20s to maintain that youthful complexion and prevent the early onset of wrinkles or fine lines. You can start with something lighter in texture with enough ginseng content to bring about visible changes. I’M FROM Ginseng Serum is a great addition to your skincare routine by boosting skin elasticity, alleviating fatigued skin caused by external environmental stress and gives you a quick-fix to dull, dry skin.

I’M FROM Vitamin Tree
Do vitamins really grow on trees? You can (probably) say so! Vitamin tree or sea buckthorn is a plant that contains an abundance of vitamins including Vitamin B, C and E as well as fatty acids. In skincare, this ingredient is mainly used to treat inflammation, heatiness, eczema and acne because of its excellent hydrating and soothing properties. I’M FROM Vitamin Tree line helps with overall hydration, to rebalance your skin’s oil-water levels which keeps your skin fresh and smooth throughout the day.
With lightweight textures of I’M FROM Vitamin Fruit Serum and Vitamin Tree Water Gel, this hydrating duo works well for oily, acne-prone skin without clogging pores. The gel-type texture applies smoothly onto the skin and absorbs well, leaving a smooth moisture layer.
I’M FROM Fig
Has it ever occurred to you that dull complexion lacking luster can be resolved simply by regularly exfoliating your skin? If you are someone with sensitive skin or concerned about harsh facial exfoliators, I’M FROM Fig line is one that you need to try! Figs are rich in amino acids, polyphenols and peptides that absorb easily into the skin to gently melt away dead, dull skin cells without irritating or stripping away moisture. This increase in cell turnover is beneficial to the skin in many ways such as visibly softer complexion, elimination of blackheads and clogged pores, and evenly toned skin.
Im from fig scrub mask is a wash-off mask pack that has granulated texture, containing fig powder and black sugar to clarify skin. This exfoliator provides both physical and chemical exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, and can be used both on your face and body. How often should you be exfoliating? This will depend on your skin condition. If you have sensitive, dry skin it is recommended to exfoliate weekly; on the other hand if you have oily skin, exfoliating 2-3 times a week will work fine for your skin! Feel free to experiment with the frequency depending on what your skin needs.
I’M FROM Pear
Last but not least, im from pear is the newest addition to I’M FROM skincare line. Made with wild pear leaves and wild pear extract, this cruelty-free, vegan line is also enriched with plant-based hyaluronic acid for excellent hydration. The use of wild pear instantly cools and soothes the skin to reduce irritation, alleviate dehydration with a lightweight finish.
I’M FROM Pear Serum and Soothing Pads are Ideal for normal or combination skin. Both have fast absorbing, lightweight, watery texture that absorbs without leaving any greasy finish. The fresh, cooling finish is perfect especially for the warmer months and you can easily pair this with other products from I’M FROM brand. We like to pair the pear by using both serum and soothing pads as part of your daily beauty routine.
