Ingredients breakdown

This product is a serum that have been created beautifully to not only brightens dark spot and to also moisturize our skin. This serum has no mineral oils, no artificial fragrances, no animal testing or animal ingredients and no harmful chemicals : what’s not to love!
 

how often to use

Use this serum twice a day duriing your AM and PM routine

smell

Has a very faint scent

texture

a thicker serum that feels more like a lotion. Glides nicely and absorbs quickly into the skin without sticky feeling. Although marketed as a dark spot correcting serum, it also leaves the skin feeling really hydrated.

Brightening

4/5

This serum instantly adds glow and leaves my skin feeling well moisturized! With this serum, my morning routine would just be

3 steps : toner > axis-y serum > suncream,

I usually just skip using moisturizers after using this serum since its moisturizing enough!

Moisturizing

2.5/5

I can tell this serum helped me maintain a healthy glowy complexion throughout my long 3 weeks vacation. However, with all the skin brightening ingredients I don’t see significant improvements with my stubborn pigmentations -probably need to use it a lot longer!

Overall

3.5/5
  • packed with skin brightening ingredients : niacinamide, glutathione, seabuckthorn, papaya, orynza sativa rice bran
  • skin moisturizing ingredients : glycerin, squalene, allantoin, sodium hyaluronate
  • free from mineral oils, artificial fragrances, animal testing animal ingredients and harmful chemicals
  • absorbs well into skin
  • no pore clogging ingredients
  • no strong scent and no artificial fragrances
  • leaves skin well hydrated and glowy
  • plenty of product – lasts more than 2 months
  • comes with a pump which makes it easy to use and hygienic
 
  • might trigger fungal acne due to Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate
  • might trigger skin sensitivity due to Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil – this ingredient is last on the ingredient list so its concentration is really small in this serum
  • don’t see significant improvements with more stubborn dark spots – may need to use it longer as niacinamide products usually takes more than 12 weeks for clear results

Thank you axis-y for sending this product for me to try 💖
