Now that we have covered the formulation aspect of this treatment, let’s talk about how it feels and performs…
AXIS-Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment comes in a small glass bottle with a dropper. Texture-wise, it’s a clear lightweight gel with tiny pink ceramide capsules suspended in the liquid. The formula has a faint rosemary scent that fades right away.
It applies clear and absorbs quickly without leaving any residue or stickiness so you can easily use any other skincare products or makeup on top. The tiny ceramide beads also melt in instantly as you apply.
I love that there’s no stinging or tingling when applying this AXIS-Y treatment. In fact, it feels quite soothing as I dab it on the affected area calming the irritation…score! This spot treatment can be used daily, both AM and PM, since it’s gentle on the skin. And a little goes a long way.
Is the AXIS-Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment effective though?
Yes, it really works to reduce the size of active breakouts and speeds up the healing process. I used it once in the morning and then at night before bedtime. It helps reduce the redness in a day or so and clears up my pimples by day 4 or 5.
I have used other acne treatments that work faster to dry out the spots, but those often leave my skin looking dry, flaky or irritated which can be even harder to cover up. That isn’t the case with this AXIS-Y treatment and it didn’t dry out or irritate my skin even when I used it twice a day.
If you have acne-prone skin, this product can also be used regularly as a preventative treatment all over to keep the breakouts at bay…without any irritating side effects!
AXIS-Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment is a gentle yet effective spot treatment that’s suitable for all skin types. It’s especially great for acne-prone but sensitive skin because the formula is gentle and hydrating, rather than harsh and drying.
It’s alcohol-free and doesn’t irritate skin (thanks to a blend of soothing and moisturizing ingredients) even if used daily.
