MY THOUGHTS ON PRODUCT PERFORMANCE
I'm from Mugwort Mask is a wash off mask that gently calms and soothes the skin. After cleansing, I apply an even layer of product on my face, leave it for 10 minutes then rinse off with lukewarm water. The texture of the mask is thick, green gel like with small bits of mugwort but easily spread on face and doesn't feel like exfoliate bits on skin like I'm From Rice Mask. It smells herball-y which I find really calming on application. I use the mask a few times a week, sometimes in the morning and evening. The mask feels cooling on skin. It calms my irritated and redness spots on my skin, reduce inflammation of my pimples. I then follow with a toner mist to lock in moisture after using the mask, serum and moisturizer. If you are not the type of using multiple skincare steps, just follow with a moisturizer after using this mask would be just fine for your skin. I have dry, sensitive and acne-prone skin. This mask hasn't broken me out or cause any irritation. It definitely helps calm and soothes the skin. It doesn't contain essential oils so a bonus for those have allergy with essential oils.
PROS: Skin feels cool, calm and soothes after use. Redness and inflammation of pimples reduce. Anti-aging, Anti-inflammation, Antioxidant properties. Suitable for all skin types, especially irritated, acne-prone skin. No mineral oil, artificial coloring, parabens.
