AXIS Y Skincare Review: Community-minded, climate-inspired

BONIIK's AXIS Y Skincare Review:

If you’ve ever wondered about the future of skincare and what that might look like in the face of an ever-changing world, look no further than AXIS Y. Australia's leading Korean skin care retailer, BONIIK, have put together this AXIS Y review to give you everything you need to know about the brand and their products.

The iconic Korean beauty brand has generated plenty of buzz in skincare circles thanks to its community-minded spirit and unique ideology of finding solutions to climate-based skin problems (think pollution, humidity, rising temperatures to name a few). In fact, this idea formed the whole basis of their 6+1+1 line which was designed to specifically help people suffering from oily and acne-prone skin in humid climates. Pretty cool, right?

With such a bold approach to skincare you might be wondering how this can help you. AXIS Y Korea understands the complex issues and varying lifestyle factors that affect our skin, and places an emphasis on listening to individual concerns in order to respond with personal solutions. In fact, you can guarantee that you’ll be in the safest of hands as their commitment to using high-quality, natural, and gentle formulas ensures that they avoid using irritating ingredients and undergo rigorous testing to meet the highest standards of dermatological testing.


But is AXIS-Y cruelty free?

You bet it is. Its non-negotiable commitment against animal testing means you can rest assured that every single one of their products is cruelty free and vegan to boot!


Can I use AXIS Y if I have dry skin?

Yes, AXIS Y skincare has been carefully developed to target a range of common skin concerns and a number of AXIS-Y products specifically improve skin hydration. Take the AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner for example which restores optimal moisture levels to the skin whilst improving uneven skin tone and reducing skin pigmentation.  Or perhaps Axis Y Dark Spot Serum which promotes visibly clearer, blemish-free skin for that silky smooth and radiant glow from within! And on that note, let’s get into our favourite AXIS-Y products.


AXIS Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner

If improving uneven skin tone and reducing skin pigmentation is one of your primary concerns, we recommend following the AXIS-Y Quinoa One-Step Balanced Gel Cleanser with the AXIS Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner. The lightweight, pH based cleanser removes make-up, impurities and excess sebum without leaving skin dry or tight thanks to its gentle, non-irritating formulation. Meanwhile the deeply clarifying facial toner is made with Centella Asiatica and 0.5% Salicylic Acid, the combination of which simultaneously soothes skin whilst working to unclog pores. Its six key ingredients of Centella Asiatica, Sugar Cane, Hawkweed, Tea Tree, Lotus and Heartleaf make it perfect for those with hyper-pigmented and acne-prone skin thanks to their individual anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties.


AXIS Y Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum

Next, follow with AXIS-Y Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum. This 5% Niacinamide-based brightening serum has quickly become a fan-favourite thanks to its efficacy in treating blemishes and improving pigmentation concerns caused by overexposure to the sun. In addition to Papaya, Sea Buckthorn Rice Bran, Allatonin and Calendula, Axis Y Dark Spot Serum also uses plant-derived Squalene to assist in moisture retention for a glowing healthy complexion.


AXIS Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment

Look familiar? Officially Gen-Z approved, the AXIS Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment went viral on Tiktok not too long ago and with good reason too. Unlike other spot treatments on the market which use harsh ingredients to dry out spots (ultimately causing further irritation to the skin), AXIS-Y takes a more nourishing and hydrating approach. This gentle, lightweight gel formula actually features many skin-loving ingredients that help to reduce irritation, control oil production and soothe the skin. Formulated with Niacinamide and a mix of gentle exfoliators, this spot care leaves skin clarified, calm and hydrated whilst the Hydrating Ceramide capsules help to restore the skin barrier.


AXIS Y Cera Heart My Type Duo Cream

Ever feel like your moisturizer isn’t working as well as it should do? That’s probably because our skin needs actually change day-to-day and that’s where this innovative little pot comes in handy. AXIS Y Cera Heart My Type Duo Cream is designed to provide a youthful glow by providing solutions to both your “U-zone” and “T-zone”. Since these two areas of our face often throw up completely different skin concerns, it makes sense that we would treat them differently and AXIS-Y agrees. Key ingredients of Centella Asiatica, Sage and Liquorice feature in the thoughtful formulations of each cream to provide moisture and hydration.

The T-zone cream is a lightweight, gel-type moisturizer that leaves your skin with a fresh and soothing sensation to restore oil-water balance; whereas the U-zone cream is enriched with ceramides to rebuild damaged skin barrier, alleviate flakiness and give the dryer parts of your skin that boost of moisture it needs to stay supple regardless of the weather.


AXIS Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash-Off Pack

And finally for those days when our skin is in need of an extra bit of TLC, we love the AXIS-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash-Off Pack. Made with 61% Mugwort Extract, Kaolin Clay, Adzuki Beans, Mungbean and Dermatica AC 3, this detoxifying mask purifies the skin to prevent breakouts and reduce redness and irritation, leaving skin visibly clearer and soothed.


AXIS-Y Biome

Did you know, AXIS-Y has a skincare line that is made FOR and BY their skincare community? In case you missed it, they recently launched a skincare line formulated with a special biome blend that combines the use of different prebiotics and probiotics to strengthen skin barrier, boost elasticity and maintain its youthful glow regardless of the season. This was created in collaboration with 1,000 consumers across 68 different countries - hence AXIS-Y was able to capture and understand the different skin types, skin concers, experiences and weather that each of their collaborators experience.

AXIS-Y Biome skincare is also known as the 'Made for Me by Me' collection which features an entire skincare routine, which allows you to add this into any step of your daily beauty routine. The line includes Biome Comforting Infused Toner, Biome Radiating Intensified Essence and Biome Recharging Night Renewal Set.

All products under this skincare line are formulated with skin barrier strengthening ingredients, have silky smooth textures that blend and absorb easily into the deeper layers of the skin. At the same time, they stay true to their promise of using only natural, skin-loving ingredients and implement cruelty-free, environmentally conscious efforts in the production process.


Tempted to give AXIS-Y a try?

There you have it - there's our AXIS-Y review! Axis Y Korea delivers skincare that truly cares with its range of cruelty-free, climate-inspired products. Its genuine commitment to finding solutions to our everyday skin concerns with its community-minded approach is just one of the reasons we love this brand so much and think you will too.
