I’ve been eyeing on I’m From skincare range for quite sometimes. Then late April got so happy when Wishtrend asked me if I want to try out this new product, Im From Ginseng Serum. I was using the Hadalabo Lifting & Firming Serum before that and I wanted a change as well. This month of May I was living with this Ginseng Serum by I’m From. And now, after using this for three weeks continuously, I think it’s the time when I can share my Ginseng Serum experience with you guys.
First of all, I love the minimal packaging of this serum. There is nothing fancy but a simple see-through glass dropper bottle with gorgeous brown serum in it. Minimal packaging and the look of the serum from outside kinda speaks that, “try the goodness I’ve inside me’!
Im From Ginseng Serum is an MFDS (Ministry of Food and Drug Safety) certified anti-wrinkle product. The serum Contains [6-year-old] 7.98% Ginseng Extract. Claims to increase elasticity, nourish and rejuvenate the skin. The serum is clearly suggested for middle age aka above 30 skin. Ginseng is very well known ingredient in anti-aging skin care around the world. It is slightly more popular in Asian countries, ancient Chinese beauty history says the Ginseng herb, ‘the herb of youth’. I did use products that have some sort of ginseng in them before. But I’ve never used a product that has this high concentration of actual pure ginseng extract in it. Needless to say how excited I was to try out the serum.
Apart from Ginseng, the serum also contains vitamins, minerals, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants.

I was a bit nervous at the beginning. The look of the serum (honey like) from outside gave me a feeling that it might be sticky. Thank goodness that it didn’t turn out that way. The serum has a nice consistency, not thick at all but a bit more than the line where I would call it thin. It smells something very soft and sweet and somewhat herby. I’m not sure how should I describe the scent but it’s there but goes away when applied. If you don’t like fragrance in your skincare then you might not like it. In my case, I like things with a nice scent. Of course, I wouldn’t tolerate a scent in my skincare which is strong like a perfume!
I must mention first that I have a combination skin type and here in KL, the weather is very hot always. I added the serum in my morning-to-day skincare. The serum applies with an ease but it feels a tad sticky (but not overly greasy and at a tolerable level) on the skin. After a few use, I reduced the amount to see if I was using too much that was causing stickiness. That turned out to be the wrong thing I was doing!
At the beginning, I was using a full dropper when it gave me sticky feeling. Then I started taking only 1/3 amount of the dropper and pat-apply it on my face. It felt better and non-sticky. I could easily reach for my moisturizer next. It’s good that I’m From Ginseng Serum isn’t any serum that would sting but it’s a very hydrating and moisturizing one. The serum makes the skin bouncy and soft almost instantly (I assume it’s because of the silicon derivate, Cyclopentasiloxane).
After three weeks of use, I’m noticing that the serum is performing very well maintaining my skin health. There is no lack of hydration, haven’t had any acne, bumps, rashes, or such either. Additionally, my makeup goes very well over the serum… wink-wink :p I love the serum.
However, about the anti-aging and wrinkle care benefits, I didn’t see any visible difference yet when I’m almost halfway of the bottle. I suppose that will take time.
Do I recommend I’m From Ginseng Serum?
– I do. It’s a good serum. From my experience, I believe the serum will be suitable for all skin type if the weather is cold. On the other hand, it might not be suitable for overly oily skin and humid weather.
