Now that we have covered the formulation aspect of this serum, let’s see how it feels and performs…
AXIS-Y Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum comes packaged in a tube with a pump dispenser. Texture-wise, it’s a silky lightweight gel serum that absorbs quickly with a smooth, natural finish. There’s a faint rosemary scent that fades right away.
The formula is lightly hydrating but doesn’t feel sticky or greasy and layers easily under other skincare products (no pilling issues) I like to use this serum after cleansing and toning and then use my moisturizer on top.
It can be applied to your entire face or just over the problem areas. AXIS-Y suggests using this serum in both morning and night skincare routines for best results.
I have been using this serum everyday for about 3-4 weeks now and it has definitely helped improve my uneven skin tone and texture. It also helps fade acne scars faster with consistent use. Overall, this serum has done a good job of making my skin look smoother and a bit brighter.
However, so far there’s been no noticeable difference in the appearance of my dark spots. I am in my early 40’s and struggle with stubborn dark spots from sun damage, and seems like this treatment hasn’t been powerful enough to diminish those pesky spots.
AXIS-Y Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum gives your skin a boost of brightness while hydrating it, thanks to a blend of 5% Niacinamide and moisture-boosting squalane. It has a gentle formula with beautifully lightweight texture that is suitable for all skin types.
For me, it hasn’t really been effective enough to fade those stubborn dark spots noticeably but I still like it as a daily hydrating serum with brightening benefits.
