AXIS-Y Sunday Morning Refreshing Cleansing Foam

Cleansers

What’s your current cleansing routine? Recently I’ve been using the new Sunday Morning Refreshing cleansing foam from Axis-y for my second step during my double cleansing routine.

What kind of cleanser is it?

This is a cleanser that is set as a PH level of 5.5 which helps with maintaining moisture and balance while cleansing your skin from excess oils, dirt, and other impurities.

Ingredients 101

Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Coco-Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Potassium Cocoate, Sodium Chloride, Potassium Benzoate, Polyquaternium-67, Xylitylglucoside, Citric Acid, Anhydroxylitol, Propanediol, Xylitol, Betula Platyphylla Japonica Juice, Glucose, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Disodium EDTA, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Agrimonia Eupatoria Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Dipropylene Glycol, Allantoin, Perilla Frutescens Leaf Extract, Saponaria Officinalis Extract, Sodium Acetate, Pentylene Glycol, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Kigelia Africana Fruit Extract, Caprylyl Glycol, Natto Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydroxycinnamic Acid, Rutin

Official ingredient list

Axis-y Foam cleanser has a minimal ingredient list and I was happy to see some familiar ingredients such as Centella Asiatica Extract, Licorice Root Extract, Glycerin, Allantoin, and Chamomilla Flower Extract. Most ingredients are considered level 1 or 2 on the EWG health scale which is a positive factor.

When dissecting the ingredients further, I realized many ingredients have skin soothing benefits such as Centella Asiatica and Sodium Hyaluronate. Also ingredients such as Licorice Root Extract are great for brightening and acne-prone skin. Most of the cleansing agents are Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate,  Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Coco-Betaine, and Potassium Cocoate.

An ingredient that could be considered sensitizing especially for extremely sensitive skin would be Citric Acid. This is commonly used as a PH adjuster and anti-aging. Even so it might be something to consider if you have extremely sensitive skin since it’s higher on the ingredient list. Also based on the ingredients and Axis-y website, the cleanser is considered fragrance-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, cruelty-free, and vegan.

Overall Experience

I really enjoyed the silky smooth texture of the foam cleanser. It makes my cleansing routine more therapeutic and relaxing. My skin doesn’t feel dry or stripped of it’s natural oil after the cleansing foam which is a plus. Even though it’s consider a foam cleanser, the lather is settled and velvety on the skin. If you’re looking for a gentle cleanser for your double cleansing or morning routine, this would be a good option.

If I had to rate this cleanser, I would give it a 3.75 out of 5 because it’s gentle, velvet texture, hydrating finish, and EWG 1 to 2 ratings. Even so, just like any skincare, it’s not for everyone. Skincare is a personal journey and some might find it irritating due to the citric acid.

Tiger Grass?? Urang Cica Soothing Ampoule

Uncategorized

Do you use cica in your skincare??

Urang New Ampoule Release!

Have you heard of Urang new Cica Smoothing Ampoule? When I first found out about their new cica product, I was shook. If you follow me for a while, you’ll know cica is one of my favorite skincare ingredients. I have a lot of skincare loves, and cica is one of them.

What is Cica?

Cica is a nickname for centella asiatica. This skincare ingredient is also know as “tiger grass” in some skincare brands. Sometimes cica is called tiger grass because tigers used to rub cica to help heal their wounds faster. Cica has many benefits such as calming your skin, reducing redness, healing, anti-aging, and repairing your skin as well. The new Urang Cica Ampoule contains a whopping 75.8% of organic Centella Asiatica.

How’s the new ampoule?

Overall, I am really impressed with the new cica ampoule. It has a soothing effect and soaks well into the skin. I have been suffering with some mask acne lately, so I really enjoy incorporating cica in my skincare because it helps calm my skin down. The ampoule is a gel-like and light-weight texture. I absolutely love the texture and how it feels on the skin. I will definitely keep using it in my night skincare routine.

I have a new series on my channel called “SUMMER WITH ME”. Here is episode 3, but you can check the other episodes on my channel.

Cleansing Routine ft. Urang Foam Cleanser & Oil Cleanser

Why have a cleansing routine?

Cleansing Oil 29,000 won Foam Cleanser 29,000 won

Do you have a cleansing routine? If not, GUUURLLL WHAT ARE YOU DOING? 😀

Having a cleansing routine is very beneficial for the health of our skin. Throughout the day we collect dirt, pollution, bacteria, oils, and dead skin cells. So, it is very important to incorporate a cleansing routine to remove these impurities we have collected. Also if we wear makeup, it’s NECESSARY to remove it thoroughly with a cleansing routine.

My Double Cleansing Routine

Recently I have been using the Urang Foam cleanser and cleansing oil as part of my double cleansing. I don’t wear makeup every day, but I prefer to integrate a double cleansing routine into daily skincare regime because it keeps my skin clean and helps prevent any breakouts.

First Step – Cleansing Oil

First, I start off with the Urang Natural Cleansing oil. It can be used both as makeup remover and cleanser. This cleansing oil contains fun ingredients such as Carthamus Tinctorius Seed Oil (for moisture), Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil (for skin-conditioning), and Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil (for cleansing and emollient ).

Here is the full list of the ingredients:

Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Polyglyceryl-2 Sesquioleate, Polyglyceryl-10 Decaoleate, Polyglyceryl-10 Caprylate/Caprate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (*Organic ingredient)

I noticed the cleansing oil does a great job removing majority of my makeup and impurities after only one use. Of course, if you have very stubborn lip tint or extremely matte lipstick, I recommend using a makeup remover on the specific areas such as lips before using the cleansing oil.

As you can see in the photo above, it removed the eyeliner quite easily but the lipstick was a bit stubborn. Now usually I have a hard time removing my lip tints no matter which cleansing oils I use since I tend to use very long lasting lip products.

Second Step – Creamy Bubble Foam Cleanser

For my second step, I like to use a foam cleanser since I find it more appealing and effective compare to other forms of cleansers. If I had to explain this cleanser in one word, it would be BUTTERY!!! I can’t get over the texture and smoothness of this cleanser. It feels amazing whenever I apply it onto my face. It feels so therapeutic as well.

Some key ingredients are Lauryl Glucoside (for cleansing), Sodium Cocoyl Apple Amino Acids (for foam booster & skin conditioning), and Potassium Cocoate (moisturizer).

Full list of the ingredients:

Water, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Apple Amino Acids, Potassium Cocoate, Glycerin, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Panthenol, Betaine, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract

After using the foam cleanser, I find my skin is both clean AND moisturized. I dislike using cleansers that strip my skin from its natural oils. Even if I don’t apply other skincare products, my skin still feels smooth and moisturize. It’s quite surprising.

As you can see in the photos above, most of the makeup was removed after using both the cleanser oil and foam cleanser. Of course the matte lipstick I used was very very VERY stubborn, so it didn’t completely remove. On the hand, I don’t have any problems removing my foundation, eye shadow, mascara, etc.

Overall Review!

I’m very content with this double cleansing routine I am currently using. Even though it doesn’t remove some of my stubborn lip tint, I am happy with the results. 🙂 If I had to choose one I prefer more, I would go for the foam cleanser because I am in love with the texture and how my skin feels afterwards.

My RATINGS are: (out of 5 stars)

Quality : ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Efficiency: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Price: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4 out of 5, YAY)

About Me

Who Am I?

Hey, diverse beauties! My name is Sandy and I am a skincare junkie, beauty content creator, and expat. Believe it or not, I used to be a blogger when I was back in school but I decided to pursue my passion on Youtube. Since then, I haven’t blog much and I am a bit rusty. I decided to go back to blogging because I missed writing and wanted to have a platform where I can share about topics I don’t have much of an opportunity to talk about. Also it gives me an excuse to talk more about my skincare obsession. 😀

Mission & Plans for my blog?

There are a few things I want to share through my new blog. They are:

  1. Korean skincare & beauty
  2. Expat experience abroad
  3. Fashion Trends
  4. Travel Guides
  5. And many more things…

Also I want to create a platform where anyone no matter your gender, race, ethnicity, religion, etc can come together and share their passion in beauty. There is beauty in diversity AND diversity in beauty.

If you have any suggestion or recommendations, please let me know~ We can all learn from each other.

Social Medias!

You can find me both on my Youtube and Instagram. I usually upload once a week on my Youtube and try to do daily post on my Instagram. Of course, life can get busy, so there are times when I take a bit of a break. I feel like we all need a bit of a social media break. It’s healthy for our mentality. Of course my breaks don’t last that long. We got to keep it real here. 😀
