Getting To Know AXIS-Y Skincare

AXIS-Y, AXIS-Y Review, AXIS-Y Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum, AXIS-Y Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule

AXIS-Y is a unique Korean skincare brand with a focus on climate based needs and their products are created as solutions to address the affects of environmental factors like temperature and humidity as well as stressors like pollution and climate change. Each product is thoughtfully formulated to address a specific skin concern. This consideration of the climate makes sense since it is a major contributing factor in the behavior of our skin. Just think of how different our skin is in the winter versus the summer.

AXIS-Y's 6+1+1 Advanced Formula skincare (611) range has been created for oily, acne-prone skin types living in humid climates. Their products are built around 6 nutrient rich ingredients that benefit skin in hot, humid weather plus 1 functional goal oriented agent which targets a specific skin issue. These are combined with a particular manufacturing technique to maximize the benefits and efficacy of the ingredients. AXIS-Y products are certified vegan and EWG graded. They are also cruelty-free, paraben-free, mineral oil free and do not contain any artificial fragrances or colors.

My Experience
AXIS-Y Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum is milky white in color with a lightly viscous consistency and the faintest hint of a minty scent. It has a mild cooling feel upon application and sinks into the skin readily. For the past few weeks, I have been using this on my cheeks in the morning  and all over my face in the evening, applying it over the Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum (previously reviewed here) followed by the Axis-Y Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule. This serum has a pleasant moisturizing effect and gives my skin a nice glow. I have not had any irritation. I have started to see some visible brightening effects this week on the freckles on my left cheek. I had a good feeling about this product since my skin reacts well to niacinamide and I look forward to seeing how it works with continued usage.

My Experience
AXIS-Y Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule is clear with a light watery texture and no discernible fragrance. It absorbs well, adding a veil of lightweight hydration without feeling heavy or sticky which is lovely. It also performs well with calming the skin. I had a bit of seasonal allergy flareup last week that left me a little red and puffy and this ampoule worked wonders to soothe and subside this. But what I really like the most is the way it provides long lasting moisture while plumping and balancing the skin. I have dry skin but I can see this working well for people with oily skin.

I'm honestly impressed with both of these products. Even though I don't have oily, acne-prone skin or live in a humid environment, they worked quite well for my skin and they are certainly very affordable. AXIS-Y Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum and AXIS-Y Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule are available for sale on the AXIS-Y website.

I like the idea of factoring the climate in - my skin behaves so different in humid climates than in dry ones, it only makes sense.

Thank you for sharing your experience about these products. The dark serum seems great for my skin.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ivana Split said...

Both of these axis products sound lovely. The climate should definitely be a consideration when developing skin products. Our skin is affected by weather conditions. The serum you reviewed sounds particularly promising. Have a nice weekend. I hope that soon enough you will be able to explore NY again.

It's nice they worked well for your skin, especially if you don't have the skin type they are best suited for! The serum sounds nice, I like the Ordinary niacinamide serum, I use that often :)

Hope that you had a good weekend! It's a nice relaxing long weekend for us.
