Axis-Y Water Your Skin Product Line Review
Do you know that pulling feeling after you wash your face? It feels like someone is pulling your face super tight and if you move just a muscle, your skin will crack. That is a sign of dehydrated skin and something we all want to avoid! Dehydrated skin means that your skin does not contain enough water and is actually different from dry skin, which is when your skin lacks natural oils. Dehydrated skin can be caused by a damaged skin barrier, pollution, the weather, and stress.
Luckily, dehydrated skin is an issue you can easily address with the right skincare. You should look for products that are hydrating and products that are moisturizing. Hydrating products provide your skin with water, while moisturizing products help to lock that water in. Ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid are great at providing your skin with long-lasting hydration. Great products to help with hydration are AXIS-Y’s new Water Your Skin products: Aqua Boosting Essence Toner, Advanced Aqua Boosting Ampoule, and Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream.

Water Your Skin Axis-Y Products
Now AXIS-Y has come out with a great new product line: Water Your Skin. The team at AXIS-Y set out to create ultra-hydrating products that help hydrate and moisturize your skin in the modern world. Dehydrated skin can be caused by environmental stress, pollution, diet, hormones, and mental stress. The Water Your Skin products have been specially formulated to help negate the causes of dehydrated skin whilst boosting your skin’s water levels. In the end, your skin will feel bouncy and supple while looking dewy, hydrated, and glowing!
Let’s have a look at the three products in the line: Aqua Boosting Essence Toner, Advanced Aqua Boosting Ampoule, and Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream.
1. Aqua Boosting Essence Toner
This toner is used immediately after washing your face to replenish the moisture lost. It contains 10-Hyaluronic Acid and provides the skin with deep and long-lasting hydration.
Although it might sound counterintuitive, your skin actually uses a lot of water when you wash your face. The Aqua Boosting Essence Toner was formulated specially to replenish your skin with water immediately after cleansing. It contains 10-Hyaluronic Acid, which provides deep hydration, as well as calming ingredients to soothe the skin after washing. Using the Aqua Booster Essence Toner will help regain hydration and prime your skin for the rest of your skincare routine.
The Aqua Booster Essence Toner contains 10-Hyaluronic Acid which is a unique type of Hyaluronic Acid with a very low molecular weight so that its hydrating properties reach 10 layers deep into the skin. This is done with a special technology that AXIS-Y calls OLIGO-HA. OLIGO-HA reduces the size of hyaluronic acid molecules to improve skin permeability. The toner also contains Panthenol to protect the skin barrier and Madecassoside to soothe the skin and boost the skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid production.
This hydrating toner also contains 6 natural extracts: Allantoin, Phytosqualane, Centella Asiatica Extract, Green Tea Water, Heartleaf Extract, and Artemisia Capillaris Extract. You can read the full ingredient list here.
1.3 Texture & Smell
This toner is a very nice, watery product that you can easily apply to your skin with a cotton pad. It feels very hydrating and fresh upon application.
1.4 Where To Buy
This toner comes in a plastic bottle that contains 150ml, plenty to last you a long time. I love the label, as it clearly shows the values of the company: scientific and environment friendly. It is clearly denoted that this product uses AXIS-Y’s special 611 formula.
1.6 How To Use
Wash your face with a cleanser. Apply the toner to a cotton pad or your hands and spread it softly all over your face. Follow up with the rest of your skincare routine.
2. Advanced Aqua Boosting Ampoule
The Advanced Aqua Boosting Ampoule is super hydrating and gives your skin a silky, glowing finish, almost like a primer. It contains 10-Hyaluronic Acid to provide the skin with a lot of hydration.
This ampoule aims to hydrate and lock in moisture so that your skin feels silky-soft and looks glowing. It also helps to control your skin’s sebum production, so it is a great product for people with oily or acne-prone skin. It creates a refreshing boost of hydration when your skin needs it most.
The Advanced Aqua Boosting Ampoule is, like the Aqua Boosting Essence Toner, based on 10-Hyaluronic Acid, that reaches 10 layers deep into your skin to hydrate it from the inside out. This guarantees that your skin is as hydrated as it can be. This product also contains 6 natural ingredients: Madecassic Acid, Asiatica Acid, Madecassocide, Asiaticoside, Centella Asiatica, and Portulaca Oleracea Extract.
Like all of AXIS-Y’s 611 Advanced Formula products, this ampoule also uses patented technology. ANTI SEBUM P(HD) 0.5% contains Evening primrose, Arrowroot, Pine Needles, and Elm Root, which help regenerate damaged skin and control sebum secretion. You can read the full ingredient list here.
2.3 Texture & Smell
The ampoule is very light and watery, more watery than your average serum. It is slightly viscous, which makes your skin feel very fresh and smooth after application.
2.4 Where To Buy
This ampoule comes in a small vial that contains 30ml. It looks very cute, similar to the Aqua Boosting Essence Toner. The label clearly shows what the product does and matches the overall look of the line.
2.6 How To Use
Wash your skin with your favorite cleanser and use a toner to rehydrate. Apply small drops of this ampoule to your face and softly pat it into your skin. If your skin needs it, you can follow up with a more viscous serum, but you can also follow it directly with a moisturizer.
3. Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream
No hydrating skincare routine is complete without a good moisturizer. Because after you have hydrated your skin, you need to make sure you lock all of that water in so that your skin stays hydrated! The Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream is a powerful soothing moisturizer that locks in hydration and calms irritated skin.
This moisturizer was specially made to help soothe and calm skin whilst moisturizing. As the name suggests, it contains Heartleaf, which is well-known for its anti-bacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is very lightweight, making it a good fit for all skin types.
The star of the Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream is Heartleaf. It is rich in antioxidants and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help to calm down the skin. Furthermore, it is also a naturally moisturizing ingredient! This moisturizer also contains Guaiazulene, which lowers the heat of irritated skin, and 6 natural ingredients: Centella Asiatica, Sage Leaf Extract, Allantoin, Licorice Root Extract, Sorghum, and Aspergillus Ferment.
Part of the 611 Advanced Formula line, the Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream uses ANTOXYL_S II technology which is derived from fermented Sorghum and helps protect the skin. Read the whole ingredient list here.
3.3 Texture & Smell
This is a very lightweight moisturizer, almost a gel-type, which makes it perfect for all skin types but especially for oily and acne-prone skin. It goes on very easily and does not leave a greasy residue.
3.4 Where To Buy
The moisturizer comes in a 60ml tube, which is a very generous amount. The tube looks slightly different from the other two Water Your Skin products, as it is completely white with a little blue accent. I love the design of this tube because it looks really hydrating right away.
3.6 How To Use
Use this moisturizer after washing your face, using a toner, and applying a serum. Apply the desired amount to your fingertips and gently pat it into your facial skin. You can apply multiple layers if you need more moisturization.
