AXIS-Y Quinoa One-Step Balanced Gel Cleanser Review,  AXIS-Y, AXIS Y Cleanser, AXIS-Y Review

Cleansing is an all important first step of the skincare process. Cleansing removes dirt, dust, makeup residue and excess oil and prepares your skin for the application of your skincare products. A good cleanser should ideally be gentle yet cleanse effectively without disrupting the natural moisture balance or natural barrier of your skin.  AXIS-Y recently sent me their AXIS-Y Quinoa One-Step Balanced Gel Cleanser which boasts such claims. Read on for my review.

AXIS-Y is a unique Korean skincare brand with a focus on climate based needs. Their products are specifically created as solutions to address the affects of environmental factors like temperature and humidity along with environmental stressors like pollution and climate change. Each product is thoughtfully formulated to target a specific skin concern. This consideration of the climate makes sense since it is a major contributing factor in the behavior of our skin. 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 Quinoa One-Step Balanced Gel Cleanser is a clear gel with a barely there herbal scent. I generally use 1 - 2 pumps. The cleanser works into a light frothy lather and rinse clean, leaving my face feeling soft and refreshed. I have used it both as a morning cleanser and in the evening. I haven't really been wearing makeup apart from on my brows so I can't speak to how well it removes a full face of makeup but it does a fine job on sunscreen and my brow gel. I like how it cleanses thoroughly without stripping. It also works nicely with my Clarisonic. My husband who has oily skin has also been able to use this cleanser and it performs just as effectively for him

I've been quite impressed with all the AXIS-Y products that I have tried and this cleanser is no exception. Because they utilize concentrated without any fillers, fragrances or potentially hazardous ingredients, the active botanicals work even better. And even though their products are generally geared towards oily or acne prone skin which mine isn't, they have worked well for my skin which tends towards the dry side.  And their range is very affordable as well. AXIS-Y Quinoa One-Step Balanced Gel Cleanser can be purchased directly from AXIS-Y which ships internationally to over 30 countries as well as YesStyle and Style Korean. You can connect with the brand on Instagram.
