axis-y mugwort pore clarifying wash off pack
Here at Buttermilk, we are always on the lookout for the very best Korean skincare products to bring to you. So we jumped at the chance to try and review three exciting products from the hotly-anticipated AXIS-Y range.
AXIS-Y’s philosophy is simple but effective; they understand the influence that the environment (pollution, humidity, temperature) has on how our skin behaves, and should therefore guide how we care for it. Their 6+1+1 Advanced Formula Skincare range is designed for people with oily, acne-prone skin living in humid climates. Each of their products is carefully formulated to address a skin concern, using clean, natural, cruelty-free ingredients.
The first product we trialled was the Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack. Formulated for acne-prone and irritated skin, this wash-off mask is enriched with 61% Mugwort extract to both gently exfoliate and cleanse, as well as soothe irritated and inflamed skin.
Its key ingredients also include Phaseolus Angularis (Adzuki Bean) Seed Powder, which, as well as being found in some sweet treats, works wonders as an exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum. Finally, it contains Houttuynia Cordata (Heartleaf) Extract:
an ingredient which is making its way into a lot of Korean skincare products for a reason. It also helps to reduce excess oil production and stimulates cell regeneration. It’s little wonder this mask is being used widely to combat “maskne”, or an outbreak of acne caused by wearing a facemask for long periods of time.
We used the mask after cleansing, on a dry face. The pack comes with a small spatula, which we used to apply the mask in circular motions to experience the exfoliating effect of the adzuki bean granules. The mask has a refreshing cooling sensation on the face, and a very light herbal scent. After allowing it to dry and harden for 15 minutes, we removed the mask with warm water and applied moisturiser.
- After just a few applications, we already felt our skin was clearer, firmer and more radiant.
- When used on congested skin, it immediately calmed and clarified without stripping the skin of essential oils.
- We used the product 1-2 times a week and felt that was a good frequency to feel the effects.
- The downside? It’s a little messy to wash off, but so worth it for the immediate after-effects!
