Hello! I come to you today with another post about Japanese sheet face masks from Mitomo. The masks come from the Ukiyo-e collection, this time from a series available only online. Some time ago I received a package from the company in a beautifully packaged cosmetic bag.
There are: Mitomo, Mask with Matcha green tea and Camellia Flower extracts, Mask with gold and Japanese Cherry Blossom and Mask with royal jelly and Japanese cherry blossom. I love sheet masks that have a good composition and deep effect on my skin. In addition, they are very easy to use, especially when we do not have time to create our own potions, mixing clays, yogurt, honey or other ingredients. With a face mask on, you can lie down and relax while, for example, watching a movie. Nothing drips, nothing runs down the face.
That’s why I’m very curious how these new products will work for me. I invite you to read the article about these Japanese novelties in my face care.
Mitomo, face masks from the Ukiyo-e collection
What is ukiyo-e?
In Japanese, Ukiyo-e means image of the passing dawn. And it is a type of Japanese woodcut and painting from the Edo period, i.e. from the mid-17th century to the second half of the 19th century. It was this trend of Japanese art that inspired the Mitomo brand to create a series of sheet masks for skin care from the Ukiyo-e collection.
The Japanese take care of their health, lead a healthy lifestyle and highly value natural cosmetics as well as healthy and unprocessed food products. For several years, the whole world has been watching their daily care rituals, because we are delighted with their health and perfect appearance despite the passage of years. The basis of this secret is the incredible ability to draw on the benefits of nature and choose the best ingredients for yourself.
Mitomo masks from the Ukiyo-e collection are sheet skin care cosmetics. They were created in Japan to care for your skin every day. Carefully and effectively.

Green tea in cosmetics is no accident! The “magical” properties of this beneficial drink are the result of the appropriate treatment, which takes place up to 14 hours after picking the leaves. In addition, they are not fermented (unlike red and black tea). That is why green tea retains more valuable ingredients and vitamins, and its properties simply delight.
In terms of neutralizing free radicals, it is green tea that is up to twice as strong as vitamin E, and also protects the skin against loss of firmness and the formation of wrinkles. It is also known for its antibacterial properties, so it is great for acne skin – it soothes irritations and inflammations, detoxifies, and normalizes the secretion of sebum.

Mitomo masks have very interesting packaging, inspired by the culture of Japan, which immediately reminds me of nature and oriental. They also came in a festive, very interesting package, which is a plus. I had no problem opening the packaging or removing the mask.
The sheet is very well soaked with the essence, wet, you could actually roll it up, put it in the fridge and use it a second time, that’s how efficient it is. I pat the rest of the liquid on the face, neck, hands up to the elbows, so it’s great when it comes to soaking. Well-cut openings and width – suitable for any face.
The material is strong, does not tear, stretches. The masks adhere well to the skin, stick to them, do not slip off even when changing, you can easily move around.
Mitomo, Mask with Matcha Green Tea and Camellia Flower extracts
I love drinking green tea, I also like its scent in cosmetics, so I immediately started testing this mask! This mask perfectly smoothes and moisturizes my skin, it also supposedly reduces small wrinkles, which we will see. But a slight lifting effect is immediately noticeable – the mask will definitely come in handy before a big night out! The sheet is very well soaked with liquid, enough for two masks. My face looked rested and radiant. And also toned and with a better color. Great results for the price! Plus a Japanese spa in the privacy of your home.
Mitomo, Mask with gold and Japanese Cherry Blossom
The advantage of this mask is certainly a pleasant smell, not too strong, not irritating, but just right, making the Japanese spa treatment more pleasant. I noticed right away that the mask moisturizes very nicely, my skin dried from radiators has clearly revived. The cosmetic is also supposed to even out skin tone and slow down the aging process in the long term. Unfortunately, the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects did not catch my eye, but I have no problems with it. Perhaps it could help people with acne more. As for me, the mask worked great in soothing dry skin – after using it, the skin is moisturized and delicate to the touch, firmed, with a better color and clearly rested.
Mitomo, Mask with royal jelly and Japanese Cherry Blossom.
I liked this version of Mitomo masks the most, because it stretched the skin under my eyes nicely. Royal jelly has always had great results in the care of my skin and hair and this time I was not disappointed. In combination with cherry blossom, it gives excellent smoothing and firming results. After using the mask, my skin was moisturized and smoother, the whole face was clearly revived after this Japanese spa treatment, the effect of a delicate lifting and glow lasted for several days after using the cosmetic. In addition, the mask has a very pleasant, but delicate scent of melliferous, blooming flowers.
