Why Use a Sheet Mask?
The better question is: why not? Women and men in South Korea have been using them for years already, and they are becoming more and more popular all across the world. Basically, a sheet mask is a soft facial mask, infused with a cocktail of powerful and effective ingredients. The mask adheres to your skin and is left on for at least 15 minutes, allowing all these ingredients to transfer to your skin and penetrate the epidermis. After you take off the sheet mask, you pat in the remaining essence to enjoy all of the effective ingredients.
There are many different kinds of sheet masks. Some are full face, some only cover half of your face, or even just under the eyes (also known as eye patches). Some sheet masks help target acne, while others provide anti-aging benefits or help replenish dehydrated skin. All sheet masks help to soothe and moisturize the skin. The 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask from AXIS-Y helps to soothe, calm, and revitalize the skin.
Pros & Cons
The AXIS-Y 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask is a great sheet mask to soothe tired skin and really refresh your complexion (and mind) after a long day. Let’s have a quick overview of what I liked and liked less about this product.
- Very soothing, cooling, and calming.
- The mask itself is made of 100% vegetable-derived material (plant-based cellulose), so it is biodegradable.
- The mask is very easy to use and does not drip.
- My skin felt softer and revitalized after use.
- Opening the mask pack can get quite messy
AXIS-Y Sheet Mask
Part of the 611 line, the 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask helps soothe dull and tired skin using 6 plant extracts, 1 main ingredient – mugwort – and 1 core technology. Let’s have a look at how I liked this product!
This Sheet Mask was made to deliver a lot of moisture to your skin, without any of the heaviness. This is especially great if you have oily skin, as this mask makes sure your skin is hydrated without making it greasy.
As the name suggests, the mask contains a whopping 61% of mugwort. Mugwort has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties and provides the skin with a whole lot of hydration. This is because mugwort contains vitamin E, which helps the skin retain moisture. Mugwort also alleviates redness and even helps to control sebum production.
The mask also contains other natural ingredients, such as spinach, cabbage, okra, and broccoli. An easy way to get your (skin-necessary) veggies in!
As this Sheet Mask has hydrating and cooling properties, it is ideal for those with sensitive, irritated, or dry skin. However, people with acne-prone skin will also benefit!
The 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask contains 6 natural ingredients:
- Centella Asiatica: Helps skin heal, soothes irritated skin.
- Cabbage: Anti-inflammatory by lowering the skin’s temperature.
- Spinach: Mineral-rich, helps the skin absorb nutrients better.
- Peony Root: Has a lot of antioxidant benefits, meaning it helps protect the skin from free radicals and aids in skin regeneration.
- Okra: Moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and strengthens the skin barrier.
- Broccoli: Contains a lot of vitamin C and E to help with hyperpigmentation (and great antioxidants!)
The main ingredient of this mask is mugwort, in fact, 61% of the mask is mugwort. Mugwort is hugely hydrating due to its vitamin E, but it also contains antioxidant properties. This means that it helps the skin neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are caused by UV rays and pollution, and break down your skin cells. This leads to signs of aging such as wrinkles, and can also lead to irritation. Mugwort is great at protecting the skin from free radicals, and healing damage, and revitalizing the skin overall.
Finally, the Sheet Mask contains 1 special technology, called MultiEx BSASM. This technology is made with a blend of 7 plant extracts that contain anti-inflammatory and healing properties, and it helps heal irritated skin.
The full ingredient list:
Artemisia Capillaris Extract, Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis (Licorice) Root Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Dextrin, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Juniperus Mexicana Oil, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Brassica Oleracea Capitata (Cabbage) Leaf Extract, Hibiscus Esculentus Fruit Extract, Spinacia Oleracea (Spinach) Leaf Extract, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Extract, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Water, Carbomer, Allantoin, Tromethamine, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Hydroxyacetophenone, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Phytate, Caramel, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Ethylhexylglycerin
The AXIS-Y sheet mask ingredients are marked as completely safe by CosDNA.
3. Texture & Smell
The mask itself is made of 100% plant materials, plant-based cellulose fiber. It feels very soft to the touch. The serum itself is very cooling and not too runny, so your face does not drip after applying the mask.
Fun fact: the mask looks green! This is due to all of the natural ingredients (spinach, broccoli, okra, cabbage), which naturally give off this color. No artificial coloring was used.
The mask smells very faintly of eucalyptus, a very fresh, soft smell that does not linger. It feels very cooling when applied to the face.
4. Where To Buy
You can buy the 61% Mugwort Green Vital Energy Complex Sheet Mask on AXIS-Y’s official website, or through YesStyle!
All of AXIS-Y’s packaging shows their eco-friendly philosophy. They use simple, stylish packaging with a lot of white and green, to show their closeness to nature. I like how this packaging describes exactly what the mask does. You can buy this mask in packs of 1 or 5. The outer pack is green cardboard. Inside, the masks are individually packaged.
6. Personal Review
I don’t like products which are strongly scented, but this mask wasn’t, so that’s great! It felt soothing on the skin. I sometimes like to put my sheet masks in the fridge and would really recommend to do that with this mask. The masks felt soft and fitted my face well. Even though I struggled a bit unwrapping it, once it was on my face, it didn’t drip.
How To Use Sheet Mask
Clean your skin with your daily cleanser and use a toner. Unfold the mask completely and place it onto dry skin, making sure that as much of your face is covered. If you like, you can gently massage the mask in to enhance the results. Leave the mask on for 15~20 minutes whilst you watch tv, read a book, or do something else relaxing. Take off the mask and gently tap in any remaining essence. You can also spread the essence to your neck and decolletage areas. If your skin is on the dry side, follow up with a moisturizer.
Other AXIS-Y Products
AXIS-Y has a lot of other great, clean beauty products you can try out. All of their products are made with natural ingredients and completely vegan and cruelty-free! There’s cleansers, toners, serums, and more, but let me highlight just 3 more products for you:
