As a skincare blogger, I often get excited about new products and product line launches. But one skincare range that I REALLY got intrigued by last year was the I’m From Fig collection. It’s been a while since I’ve actually felt such desperation to get my hands on something as much as this, and now my time has finally come. Do I sound deranged? Can you relate? 🙃

As you can probably assume considering fig is a fruit, fig possesses potent antioxidant properties which ultimately warn off signs of aging and damage to the skin barrier. The lesser known benefit of fig extracts in skincare is the moisture loss prevention benefits – keeping the natural mositure barrier of skin sufficiently hydrated for longer.

Yes 🙌 It truly does a great job a boosting skin hydration near the start of your skincare routine after toner. I usually rely on getting most of my lightweight, quick absorbing moisture into my routine from the essence step of my routine so this fits in nicely. Now I know a lot of my oily skin friends will be looking at this product and be thinking: ‘Do I really need this much moisture in my routine? Is essence even worth it when I don’t have dry skin?’.
Well, let me tell you that the I’m From Fig Boosting Essence is actually beneficial for all. You see, when layed twice, this essence boosts inner hydration and retains that moisture. Meaning you’ll likely find that you need less moisturiser. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like the feeling of moisturising creams sitting on the surface of skin. So to be able to use less of it because of using an essence like this is highly appreciable. This is a product I would happily use again, especially as it maintains the suppleness and smoothness of skin all day long.
