Why Use a Gel Mask?
Gel masks are used to deeply hydrate the skin. The gel often contains a powerful hydrating ingredient, as well as some bonus ingredients to target different skin concerns. You apply the gel mask to your skin, leave it set for 15~20 minutes, and rinse it off again to give your skin a hydration boost.
Compared to other wash-off masks, like cream masks or clay masks, gel masks are very cooling and soothing to the skin. As they are very lightweight, they are ideal for the summer months and great for people with oily or acne-prone skin. Note: if your skin is on the drier side, a gel mask might not be hydrating enough.
Pros & Cons
The AXIS-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask helps to hydrate and moisturize the skin and is packed with natural ingredients that repair dull skin. It even contains 2% niacinamide to brighten and even out the skin tone. In short, these are my pros and cons for this product.
- Super cooling and lightweight. It feels really relaxing and soothing.
- It smells refreshing and is great to use after a long, stressful day.
- My skin feels calm and hydrated after using the gel mask.
- If you have dry skin, this mask might not be hydrating enough for you.
- Gel masks are messier than sheet masks, as you have to rinse the mask off after usage.
AXIS-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask Review
AXIS-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask was developed as part of AXIS-Y’s 611 line. It is developed using the 6+1+1 Advanced Formula, meaning it contains 6 natural extracts, 1 core ingredient, and 1 patented technology. Let’s have a deeper look at this product!
This New Skin Resolution Gel Mask was developed to brighten and soothe the skin. It contains 2% niacinamide to even out the skin tone and brighten a dull and tired complexion. It contains powerful ingredients that help repair the skin barrier and restore the skin’s moisture levels. This helps alleviate redness and soothes irritated skin. It also helps alleviate tired-looking and dull skin.
Your skin renews itself every 27 days. This means that you don’t have to wait until the new year to start with your skin resolutions, but you can start them right away! That’s why AXIS-Y developed the New Skin Resolution Mask. It helps revitalize the complexion and, when used frequently, renews and refreshes your skin.
As it is a gel mask, it is great for people with oily skin, who want to hydrate their skin without making it greasy and oily. The gel soothes and cools whilst providing moisture, and in the meantime also helps even out your skin tone and alleviate hyperpigmentation.
As part of the 611 line, the AXIS-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask contains 6 natural base ingredients.
- Heartleaf: Helps to soothe the skin, providing relief from irritation. Also regulates sebum production.
- Fig: Regenerates the skin and helps maintain a healthy moisture balance.
- Madecassoside (Centella Asiatica): Soothes the skin whilst healing inflammation.
- Allantoin: Strengthens the skin barrier to minimize moisture loss.
- Mugwort: Powerful antioxidant that soothes the skin.
- Yam Root: Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
This Gel Mask also contains 2% niacinamide, which is well-known for its brightening properties. Using niacinamide in your skincare routine helps dull skin recover so that it imparts a natural and healthy glow. It also helps strengthen the skin barrier.
AXIS-Y uses a core technology, Meadow Shield Technology, to increase the anti-inflammatory properties of this mask. This core technology uses antioxidant phenolic acids from Meadowsweet Flower extract to fight bacteria and reduce skin inflammation.

3. Texture & Smell
This gel mask is a little runnier compared to other gel masks out there. It might drip off your spatula when applying, but it stays firmly put on your face so you do not have to worry about dripping after applying.
The mask is lightly brown-green in color and contains tiny little leaves. You will not feel these leaves on your skin.
The New Skin Resolution Gel Mask has a faint, soft, refreshing smell. AXIS-Y does not use artificial fragrances, so this scent is all natural. It faintly reminds me of nature after rain. The smell does not linger.
4. Where To Buy
You can buy this cooling and soothing gel mask on AXIS-Y’s official website, or through YesStyle!
As always, AXIS-Y’s packaging is very minimalistic and chic. They often use whites and greens to match their eco-friendly philosophy. This mask comes in a 100ml green tub. The tub contains a spatula for easier application of the mask.
6. Personal Review
The gel mask comes with a tiny spatula but it recommended to get a bigger spatula as well to make applying the gel mask much easier as it could get messy. Like I mentioned in my previous AXIS-Y reviews, I generally don’t like scented products, but this one didn’t bother me too much as it has a herbal natural scent. The product is easy to scoop up and apply. I thought it would get messier but because it’s not too liquid it doesn’t droop.
How To Use Gel Mask
If you’re ready to try out this gel mask, start by cleaning your face with your daily cleanser. After patting dry, use the spatula to apply an even layer of this gel mask to the face, avoiding the sensitive skin around the eyes and mouth. Leave the mask on for as long as you like, but aim for at least 15~20 minutes. Gently rinse off the mask with lukewarm water. Continue with your regular skincare routine by applying toner, a serum, and moisturizer.
