Feels Proud Owning It?

Another beautiful product that I feel proud having in my collection. I was initially introduced to the brand through a giveaway event on Instagram. The first prize was to fly to Seoul to meet the team! Their simple mint green design and their approach of creating skincare products targeted for those with acne prone skin instantly grabbed my attention. Although I didn’t win the trip to Seoul, I was grateful to be given their influencer kit to test out their products! I have been using both their toner and serum on and off for a good one month now and its time for a review!

Feels Good Using It?

It was one of the warmest day in the UK and instantly I loved how refreshing these products feels on my skin.

This duo is definitely my to go products when my skin feels more congested. Both products are light weight and refreshing on the skin. Initially I was worried that their products might be too drying on my skin but no, they contain great ingredients that help soothe and hydrate the skin. Most importantly they don’t have any occlusive ingredients that increase congestion.  

hang on a little to watch the texture of the toner and serum

T O N E R

Daily Purifying Treatment Toner

Packaging | No leaking issue and comes with the standard toner dispensing hole to better control the amount poured out.

Usage | I use the toner by pouring the product onto a piece of cotton to have a more even and controlled amount applied all over the skin. I only used this toner once a day.

Smell | Astringent smell *me and my partner both thinks the toner smells mildly like vodka!* However the smell does not linger and I didn’t really notice the scent until I intentionally sniff directly from the bottle.

Texture | As flowy as water!

Feels after using | Instantly refreshes the skin with a little cooling effect. Does not sting nor irritates my skin and leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated.

S E R U M 

Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule

Packaging | My favourite pipette dropper bottle, easy to use and hygienic!

Usage | I use one full pump and spread evenly all over my face upon each usage.  

Smell | no strong noticeable scent

Texture | more viscous than water, spreads and absorbs quickly into the skin

Feels after using | Instantly feels well hydrated without having the feeling of a film of product over my skin which some hydrating serum has.

Feels Restored Using It?

Before and after using both the toner and serum for a month

I have non-sensitive combination skin that clogs easily

Throughout the 4 weeks of using the products the most noticeable results would be the reduction in redness around my cheek area. I still have breakouts which its probably due to poor dieting these few days. Older acne scars looks lighter and my skin surely feels smoother!

I really enjoyed using these two products, as I have been using mostly hydrating products I forgotten how light and refreshing some products can leave the skin. As the weather is getting a lot warmer in the UK now, I can see myself reaching out more for the product. I can see gradual improvements with my skin and will continue to use them! Thank you so much Axis-Y for sending me your products to try! I definitely recommend their product to anyone that is looking for a mild gentle daily exfoliating toner and a lightweight hydrating and soothing serum.
