Protect Your Skin from Environmental Damage
This little bottle of green serum packs a punch to environmental damage and irritated skin with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and skin protecting benefits from soothing Green Tea, Mugwort (Artemisia) extract, and Panthenol (Vitamin B5).
Beauty of Joseon's Calming Serum: Green Tea + Panthenol uses 50% green tea as their base ingredient, which is rich in polyphenols and restorative properties that remove toxins and protect your skin from UV rays, while stimulating collagen production. In traditional Korean medicine, green tea was often used to reinvigorate the mind and body for refreshed and renewed energy.
With the addition of 30% Artemisia, a deeply hydrating and soothing ingredient, it helps boost skin renewal and regeneration. Artemisia or mugwort, has many essential vitamins and antibacterial benefits to calm down inflammation and irritation. It also delivers moisture without causing additional blemishes if you already suffer from acne or excessively oily skin.
This moisturizing serum is infused with 5% Panthenol which once absorbed into the skin, helps lock in hydration and prevent moisture loss. Panthenol is an effective humectant that fills in your skin cells with moisture to keep it elastic and flexible, which contributes to a youthful complexion. Vitamin B5 can aid in speeding up wound recovery and shield you against harmful external pollutants.
Weight: 30 ml / 1.01 fl oz
Scent: unscented / no discernable scent
How it feels: fluid and light. Serums tend to be more fluid for easy absorption of all the active nutrients they provide.
PROS: This is a must-have in your routine if your skin is lacking moisture and elasticity, and need that extra layer of hydration. The powerful combination of ingredients from Green Tea, Mugwort and Panthenol enhances moisture levels and helps strengthen your barrier, while helping you fend off damaging UV rays. Pollutants, dust, and sun exposure can truly take a toll, and this serum delivers vital nutrients that your skin needs to maintain healthy and stronger skin for the long-term.
If you experience bouts of irritation, itchiness, or redness on your cheeks and chin, Mugwort and Panthenol act like a shield against external stimuli. Mugwort is an excellent ingredient used in skincare for its anti-fungal and antibacterial benefits, eliminating acne related bacteria, controlling oil, and even stimulating collagen. Vitamin B5 prevents dryness and moisture loss which is essential for keeping your skin hydrated and flexible, which also attributes to smoother and softer texture.
The ingredients in this restorative serum can help make your barrier look and feel plumper, and the light texture absorbs quickly so there's no residual stickiness or oiliness, which makes this an ideal serum to use day or night. Sensitive and acne-prone skin types can use this serum without fear of causing more blemishes or pimples. You can easily layer your other skincare products in your routine without pilling or flaking, especially if you like to add a base of hydration on your face before applying makeup.
Calming Serum is packed with some of my favorite ingredients of mugwort, green tea, and panthenol, which I find are very good attributors to a healthy skin foundation because of their high levels of antioxidants and vitamins. If you're new to Kbeauty, this serum is a good one to start with to improve your complexion or maintain a healthy one.
My skin soaks up this serum well, and I like that it's unscented. There's no smell that lingers on your skin. After a few weeks of using it in the evenings, I noticed my skin was softer. I'm half-way through the bottle and it looks a little more plumper and smoother. If you experience seasonal allergies that also aggravate flaking or itchiness, this serum has skin soothing ingredients to help alleviate those symptoms. Store this in the frig for a cooling refreshing application.
CONS: I wish the bottle was bigger. It's 1.01 fl oz so a few drops a day can quickly deplete. Luckily the price point isn't outrageous so I would still keep this in my skincare routine. This serum soothes skin from irritation, redness, and acne flare-ups, so if you're gravitating toward more hydration, this alone wouldn't do it. One of my favorite go-to products for hydration is Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Ampoule or Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Essence.
I think Beauty of Joseon packs a lot of premium ingredients in their serums, which make them a Kbeauty favorite. Serums can improve your skin and add that extra layer of nutrients and glow.
