AXIS-Y is a relatively new player in the highly competitive k-beauty industry. What makes them stand out and absolutely unique is their focus on climate-based and climate-inspired skincare.

They acknowledge that climate, temperature, humidity, and other environmental stressors directly affect how our skin behaves. So their skincare line is especially formulated with these factors in mind.

I also love how their products contain ingredients I’ve never used in my skincare routine before, like liquorice and chamomile in their Sunday Morning Refreshing Cleansing Foam, yam root in their New Skin Resolution Gel Mask, and sugar cane and narrowleaf hawkweed in their Daily Purifying Treatment Toner.

They have so many products I want to try! Today, we’re looking at their Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream, the moisturizer all of us combination skin folks have been waiting for.

Let’s get to it.

CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review

CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is a lightweight essence that provides long-lasting hydration, helps improve skin’s elasticity, soothes sensitive skin and more. It’s packed with a whopping 96% snail secretion filtrate and suited for all skin types.

CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review

I love discovering, using and, eventually, loving what can be considered as unusual skincare ingredients. 

Things like mugwort (I’m From Mugwort Mask), propolis (By Wishtrend Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule), rice (I’m From Rice Toner) and fig (I’m From Fig Cleansing Balm).

They’re not as widely known in North America but have been used in Asian skincare, specifically k-beauty, for a very long time. 

And for good reason. They’re gentle on skin and they work!

Snail mucin is another ingredient I have on my love-it list. It’s sometimes called snail slime, snail mucus, snail serum, snail goo and snail secretion filtrate.

Sounds yucky? Yes, it does. Good for the skin? Absolutely. 

Let’s dive in.

Melano CC Vitamin C Review

Rohto Melano CC Vitamin C evens out skin tone, helps reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots, prevents acne, boosts elasticity, and tightens pores for a brighter, healthier, more youthful complexion. 

Melano CC Vitamin C Review

Vitamin C is a powerhouse skincare ingredient. It’s been proven to:

  • Even out skin tone and texture 
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brighten overall complexion, and more

So of all the active ingredients out there, vitamin C was one of the top things I wanted to try and start using.

I have sensitive skin though, so I took it slow and very carefully (check out this vitamin C skincare guide for beginners if you want to learn more). 

Melano CC Vitamin C is one of the first vitamin C products I tried. 

Made by the same company that produces Hada Labo (a Japanese skincare line I trust a lot), I had every confidence that this product would be amazing too.

Bad Skincare Habits to Break Today

Bad skincare habits, like all bad habits, are hard to break. Unfortunately, these same habits undermine our journey to clear and healthy skin. So the sooner we break these bad skin habits, the sooner we can achieve the complexion we want. 

Bad Skincare Habits to Break Today

We’ve all been there. 

We buy the best skincare products. We include them in our skincare routine and use them religiously. But we still don’t get the results we want.

It’s possible the product is not the right one for our skin type. Or it’s just not a very good product at all. It’s possible that our own skin care habits are to blame, too.

The road to clear and healthy skin is a wholistic one. Products matter. But what we do in addition to using the right products matters as well.

Let’s have a look at some of these bad skincare habits that are jeopardizing our skincare journey. Let’s see if we can break them today!

Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop is part of the brand’s blue product line, which helps keep the skin vibrant and youthful. 

I’m already a big fan of their midnight blue calming cream; it’s especially suited for my sensitive skin. So I was very excited to try their midnight blue youth activating drop, which comes in the same lovely blue colour.

Does it work as well as their calming cream? Let’s find out.
