Now that we have covered the formulation aspect of AXIS-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask, let’s get to how it feels and performs…
As the name indicates, it has a fresh gel texture that’s very lightweight and glides on my skin smoothly. The formula has real Heartleaf leaves in it which makes it satisfying to look at, and even more satisfying to use! You just need to leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water.
There’s no stickiness and it feels so soothing, refreshing and slightly cooling on my skin. What I really like is that this is not the typical minty-cooling effect (sometimes too intense!) that some masks or moisturizers have…it’s a gentle cool feeling in a comforting way that literally makes my skin calm down!
According to AXIS-Y, the combination of all those soothing active ingredients in this mask reduce heat on the skin caused by a humid climate, inflammation or irritation.
So, now whenever I’m experiencing skin irritation and sensitivity or unexpected, unwanted skin guests like breakouts or itchiness, this is the mask I find myself reaching for. Another thing I like about this mask is that it also doesn’t harden during use and maintains its moisture.
Especially now that the weather is starting to warm up, this cooling and soothing mask will be a skincare savior for me in the hot, humid summer months.
I have also been trying out the AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack ($22) that’s one of their best-sellers to fight “Maskne”
With a base of 61% Mugwort extract, this wash off pack clears the pores of impurities, soothes inflamed and irritated skin, and gently exfoliates dead skin to reveal a bright and healthy complexion.
- Unclogs pores and improves appearance of pores
- Calms inflammation and irritation
- Exfoliates the skin with Adzuki Bean granules
Here are the star ingredients in AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack:
This Mugwort mask also contains Kaolin and Bentonite clay among the first 5 ingredients.With my dry skin, I have never been a fan of clay masks because most of them are too drying (and sometimes even irritating) for me. So, honestly I wasn’t too excited about trying this one.
But I was in for a pleasant surprise! This mask not only leaves my complexion looking smoother, but also tightens my pores without drying out my skin.
I can see myself reaching for this mask on a regular basis throughout the summer when my skin becomes a bit oily and congested. Using this is also just a pleasant experience. The application isn’t too messy and removing it is quick and easy as well.
If you are struggling with stressed and irritated skin troubled by acne or inflammation, you need to try the AXIS-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask ($23) Not only does it soothe skin and tackle irritation but also improves dull, uneven skin tone and texture (thanks to its core ingredient 2% Niacinamide)
And if you want some serious healing and clarifying action against acne (without any drying side effects!), the AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack ($22) would be another great addition to your skincare routine.
The combination of these masks will help you reap the full benefits of both and maintain a clear complexion…they are definitely #bettertogether! You can use both products alternately 2-3 times a week.
