About The Brand: Axis-Y

Since the skincare enthusiasts are increasingly more conscious about the environment, the planet, and its inhabitants, the demand for eco-friendly and cruelty-free products has increased. South Korean beauty brands have long been following a more natural approach to skincare and now brands such as AXIS-Y have stepped up to make beauty products that are natural, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free.

AXIS-Y Toner Review

Without further ado, here is my review of the AXIS-Y’s Daily Purifying Treatment Toner.

1. Purpose

The Daily Purifying Treatment Toner is a great step for cleansing; it can act as a preventative measure for acne-prone skin. You can add it to your daily skincare routine if you want to minimize the bacteria and pollution that get stuck in the pores and can lead to acne and inflammation when they remain in the skin and block the glands. AXIS-Y has included natural ingredients that can help with soothing and healing the irritated skin on top of its cleansing function.

If you have been foregoing toners, you might want to revisit the K-beauty type of toners to benefit from the exfoliation while maintaining your skin’s hydration.

2. Ingredients

The Daily Purifying Treatment Toner is made with a wide variety of soothing and healing ingredients to maximize its effects.

Centella Asiatica is used to boost the skin’s healing and help with the scars. It has been used for treating minor wounds for generations.

Tea tree extract or oil is a well known and commonly used acne treatment ingredient that is also used for curing infected eyelashes as well as other dermal problems. AXIS-Y uses this ingredient for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Sugar cane can help remove debris with the help of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). AHA can also help improve wrinkles and improve the overall look and feel of your skin.

One of the ingredients is driven from a beautiful yellow flower related to daisies called Narrowleaf Hawkweed (or Hieracium Umbellatum) which is added to soothe skin irritation.

Fish mint or Houttuynia Cordata is a southeast Asian plant full of flavonoids. It helps detox the skin and improves the healing process. The healing effects can improve a range of issues such as acne scars and eczema.

Lotus is another natural ingredient that is used to create the Daily Purifying Treatment Toner. This beautiful flower is a natural moisturizer that can help control the sebum production in the skin.

The AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner includes 0.5% salicylic acid. As a skincare enthusiast you probably already know that salicylic acid is a power ingredient that dissolves dead skin cells and debris. It can also help with the treatment of fungal acne.

I like the clean and minimalistic design of The AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner. Like their other products, the packaging design is a clean and crisp mixture of green and white. The Daily Purifying Treatment Toner comes in a transparent green (200 ml / 6.76 fl oz) bottle.

The bottle comes in a similarly white box with a clean and crisp design.

6. Personal Review

Before using the AXIS-Y toner I was using the Klairs Supple Preparation Toner and one of the main things I didn’t like about this toner was the scent. Too strong and it took me quite a while to get used to it. When switching to the AXIS-Y toner I was pleasantly surprised that it had no scent whatsoever. I love it. 

Like always I used a cotton pad to apply the toner both in the morning and evening. The toner is relatively thin so you need to put quite a lot on the cotton pad so you can cover your whole face. 

I don’t have anything negative to say about this toner. I love the texture, how well it spreads, that it doesn’t have a scent and that it is very moisturizing. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky at all. 

How To Use Daily Purifying Treatment Toner

Koreans pay a lot of attention to keeping their skin clean and their pores properly functioning. In the K-beauty skincare routine, it’s common to do what’s called a double-cleansing. Toners are often used as the second step to another cleanser of your own choice.

After the first cleansing step, pour a proper amount of the 611 AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner onto a cotton pad and gently wipe your skin (try to work from inside towards the outer areas of your face).

AXIS-Y suggests you use this product with their other products to ensure your skin is hydrated throughout the day.
