Adzuki Bean Extract
Phaseolus Angularis Seed Powder 
Adzuki beans are well used in the skincare world as a powerful exfoliant to help clean and brighten up the skin. They help acne and clear up blackheads and the appearance of large pores. They also contain saponin – a natural foaming agent, and manganese, which is rich in antioxidants and helps to neutralize free radical damage in the body.  -

Artichoke Extract
 Cynara Scolymus(Artichoke) Leaf Extract 
Prevents pore “sagging” by strengthening and reinforcing cells from the inside, which also supports the defense against wrinkles; the same nutritional values that make the vegetable/thistle/flowering bud an antioxidant powerhouse are also a recipe for smaller pores and younger-looking skin. -

My Thoughts on AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Wash Off Pack

This is my review on AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack
Swipe left for more pictures:

Looking into the full list ingredients of AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack, its key ingredients are Mugwort, Adzuki Beans and of course Artichoke Extract. The full INCI list looks great with great plant-based ingredients that are meant to soothe, heal and also antibacterial. This makes this wash-off mask really great for treating maskne as mentioned.

It comes in a semi-clear hard plastic jar with a screw cap. It also contains another cap inside with a spatula provided which makes scooping out the product more hygienic. As most of you know I don't prefer jar packagings but considering its texture, jar packaging is the most convenient for this mask.

Once opening the jar, you'll see obvious Adzuki Beans Granules in this green mugwort mask. Scooping out the mask, you'll find its texture to be very thick but easily scooped out and glided on the skin. The texture is almost like clay but softer. This makes it very easy to wear this mask too, however, the process may be a bit messy as the granules of the Adzuki Beans may clump and most of them will just stick to the edge of your fingers if you choose to use your fingers. You can also use the spatula provided, but for me, using fingers is way faster than using a spatula. Just make sure you scoop out the mask with a spatula first for hygienic purposes. 

Once freshly glided on the skin, this mask creates a bright green mask with bean granules sticking on the face. My son laughs every time when I use this mask, keeps saying I'm a green monster. LOL... It takes a few minutes for the mask to dry out, and the green colour isn't as bright as it was when freshly applied. The bean granules will also start to fall of a bit when it starts to dry, so you'll know it's almost time to wash it off.

If you're not familiar with these kinds of masks, especially clay masks, you'll say the scent is horrible. LOL... But those who are familiar would say the scent is nice, to me it's nice. AXIS-Y uses no artificial fragrance, so the scent is from the mixture ingredients inside the mask.

I experienced no irritation while using the mask, but I do feel a bit of light tingling pain when applying it, but only for a few seconds. Once applied and drying up, I feel no pain at all, even though the Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack is a drying mask, I didn't even feel my skin getting tight once the mask is dried up.

While washing off the mask, it may get a bit messy too and you'll be needing quite an amount of water if you're using only water to wash it off. If you want a cleaner and less hassle way, wash it off with a microfiber cloth and wipe the bean granules off instantly. But I prefer using only water to wash it off because the bean granules are actually a nice gentle scrub for the skin. I wash my face in a circular motion and rub it with the bean granules until the mugwort mask is completely gone. It may take a while but it's worth it.

Once I washed everything off, my skin instantly feels so plump and smooth. My skin also looks healthier and glowing especially after applying the rest of AXIS-Y products afterwards. This mask is definitely a great exfoliator as applying serum and moisturiser, I felt it penetrating better inside the skin. Which results in super nice and moisturised skin.

I love using this mask in the early morning so I can straightly apply my skincare routine afterwards. As seeing the results this mask gives my skin, it definitely lifts up my mood to start the day.

Another thing I've noticed that this mask really does calm down irritated skin. I had a few burning pimples before I applied this mask, then after I washed this mask off, the irritation from the pimples was magically gone and the redness seemed to fade also. I'm amazed, honestly.

Overall Thoughts
Regrets! I regret not purchasing this ever since it launched. Yes, I was aware when this Mugwort Wash Off Pack was launched by AXIS-Y as I've been following this brand for the longest time. I have always postponed purchasing it because I had tons of masks to finish up. Now that I've tried it, I regret not using it earlier as this mask carries the job it claims.

AXIS-Y mentions that this Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack was created to deal with the pandemic problem worldwide which has caused a lot of 'maskne' that has been causing stressful skin irritation. Well to me that's exactly what this mask is doing.

AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack is such a great product, no wonder skincare addicts has been raving about it here and there, it's a must-have! Just don't get overboard and use it every day, use it only once or twice a week as this mask is an exfoliator. You might risk damaging your skin if you use it without following its proper instructions.
