Back in April, I introduced you to the amazing, innovative skincare brand; AXIS-Y, and today I have the AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner from their product range to show you. In my last post, I shared my thoughts on their AXIS-Y Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule, and I’ve been using the Ampoule alongside the Toner, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. AXIS-Y is a K Beauty climate-inspired skincare brand based in Seoul, South Korea, and their products are really intriguing.
AXIS-Y skincare products are all produced with only skin-loving ingredients. The products are all certified vegan and is EWG graded skincare which is cruelty free, paraben free, mineral oil free, no artificial fragrances and no artificial colours either.
If you haven’t read my first introductory post in to the AXIS-Y brand, they pride themselves on creating natural climate based skincare products, with their formulas being influenced by growing pollution, stressors and climate change. In addition, with the rise of travelling, more people have realised the potential skin concerns arising by their climate and the need for more personalised skincare.
All of the AXIS-Y skincare products are part of the 6+1+1 Advanced Formula collection, which is said to be the most sincere care for oily, acne prone skin in humid climates. The whole concept behind the 6+1+1 collection involves the following breakdown;
- 6 Nutrient Rich Natural Ingredients: we carefully select plant extracts that are healthy and deliver benefits for skin in hot, humid weather.
- 1 Functional Goal-Orientated Agent: we use one functional ingredient to solve the targeted skin problem safely and effectively.
- 1 Quality Producing Technology: we incorporate expertise in manufacturing to quality delivery ingredients and results.
The AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner is $25 and contains 200ml of product within a teal coloured plastic bottle, with a clinical vibe label. I really like the AXIS-Y branding on all of their products. Every thing looks like it could have been prescribed by a dermatologist, and the products look and feel a lot more exclusive than something you could just pick up off the shelf at the likes of Boots.
“Clears out bacteria and pollution stuck deep in pores that cause persistent inflammation and acne. Nutrients from our natural ingredients then soothe skin and promote healing.“
The AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner is a toner which is gentle enough for use every day, and it’s designed to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells, remove acne causing bacteria for clearer skin, as well as soothing inflammation, and speeding up the skin’s healing process.
I think this particular product is interesting, as we’re all having to wear face coverings right now, and ‘maskne’ has become a real skincare concern for many.
The wearing of masks can cause acne, and this toner is perfect for removing bacteria from the skin after a day of using a mask, to prevent maskne from appearing, as well as helping to heal any residual maskne scarring you may be experiencing too. Plus, wearing a mask can be really abrasive on the skin after a long day, and the AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner helps to soothe any inflammation you might also be suffering from.
Salicylic acid is one of my favourite skincare ingredients, and it works really well for my skin. The AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner contains 0.5% salicylic acid which can break through layers of sebum and dead skin to treat the skin deep within for a clearer, and healthier complexion.
The top of the bottle comes with a handy little plug to prevent any leaking, and you simply apply the toner to the cotton pad, and smooth the pad over the face and neck. Exfoliative toners are a step within my skincare routine I simply couldn’t live without. I love the instant improvement in the texture and finish of my skin, and the AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner works beautifully when used alone, but also when used alongside the AXIS-Y Ampoule too.
I have very sensitive skin, and I haven’t experienced any sensitivity issues when using the AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner. If you suffer from acne, this toner would be an excellent addition to your routine, as it helps to treat pityrosporum folliculitis (fungal acne).
It keeps my skin smooth, free from texture and refined, and the Ampoule is a great addition for a hydration boost post-toner. I’ve never tried an acid based toner which offers soothing benefits at the same time. Usually, you have to opt for clarifying or soothing benefits, but the AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner delivers on both, and is a must-have for anyone having to wear a face covering right now, or anyone that wants a highly effective yet innovative toner.
