My Thoughts on AXIS-Y's Essence Toner

I have been aiming to try this ever since it first launched. When I finally managed to try AXIS-Y's hydrating range, I was going through a rough situation. Thank goodness I was using this.

Looking into the full list of ingredients for AXIS-Y Aqua Boosting Essence Toner, its main ingredients are Allantoin, Centella Asiatica, Heartleaf, Squalane, Green Tea, and Mugwort. AXIS-Y is known for their 6+1+1 ingredients which includes 6 mains as mentioned, 1 core ingredient which is Hyaluronic Acid and 1 technology process. For the Boosting Essence Toner, OLIGO-HA is used. Oligo-Hyaluronic technology reduces the size of hyaluronic acid molecules to improve skin permeability, helping to improve skin elasticity and wrinkles by stem cell activation. Overall, the INCI list looks very promising.

It comes in a see-through clear plastic bottle with a screw cap. It has a similar shape as AXIS-Y's Purifying Treatment Toner only that the size is smaller. This toner also comes with an outer packaging box and the design is pretty similar to their previous range. It could be hard to differentiate with the outer packaging, but you can tell immediately from the bottle. 

The texture is interesting as at first, I was expecting a watery texture just like their purifying toner, but turns out the texture is a bit denser, still runny but not as watery. It absorbs into the skin quickly just water and it's neither sticky too. Once fully absorbed, it gives an instant boost of hydration to the skin.

It has very minimal scent to no scent at all

This is a skin saver! Honestly, I'm so glad this came at the right time because the whole month of December was a struggle for me. I barely had time to focus on skincare, and my situation during that time wasn't good either. I lacked sleep, couldn't eat properly and was indeed under a lot of stress. I also skipped using skincare at all for a couple of days and my skin felt so rough and uncomfortable.

Since I couldn't stand the feel of unclean skin, I made my skincare routine short with AXIS-Y's hydrating products and it was sure a good pick. During times like this when my mind isn't at its place, I feel like making sure the skin gets enough hydration then it should be good enough.

This Essense Toner from AXIS-Y really helped my skin to get the hydration it needed and applying it was quick too. I can say that this was the most convenient skincare for me to use during that time. I wasn't drinking enough and I was in an air-conditioned room 24/7 which made hands and feet dry, so you can imagine how my facial skin would have reacted. However, to my surprise, I didn't seem to have any breakouts during that time.

Overall Thoughts
AXIS-Y Aqua Boosting Essence Toner is definitely a must-try! It should be suitable for all skin types, and it's the perfect skincare range that provides instant deep hydration to the skin without worrisome ingredients. The chances of your skin breakout are likely none at all. Again, another AXIS-Y product is added to my favourite list.
