Review: Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule (AXIS-Y)

AXIS-Y Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule Kbeauty Review

This is a sponsored (paid) post. Please note that referral links or codes may be used.

I’ve been testing out a number of AXIS-Y products lately, and the latest one is the Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule. Ampoules are pretty much a supercharged serum that contain a high concentration of actives. They act as an immediate boost to your routine and can be switched up according to your skin condition.

The difference between ampoules and serums is that serums are typically used twice daily, whilst the much stronger ampoule is only used on occasion. It should also have a more specific formulation, focusing on just one or two skin benefits rather than multiple.

The Artichoke Intensive Skin Barrier Ampoule is available at AXIS-Y for USD$25, so head on over if you’d like to check it out or pop over to their Instagram to find out about more of their range. And now, it’s onto the review!

Review: Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream (AXIS-Y)

AXIS-Y Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream Kbeauty Review

This is a sponsored (paid) post. Please note that referral links or codes may be used.

For those with combination skin or just skin that changes all year round, the AXIS-Y Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream has got you covered! This was designed to allow you to customise your skincare routine day-by-day. I’ve been using it for the past three or four weeks and my skin has had it rough – my sleep cycle is pretty much non-existent, the weather in Australia is unpredictable and I’m definitely drinking too much boba! It’s been a real saviour and I love that it can cover me from day to night.

The Cera-Heart My Type Duo Cream is currently available at AXIS-Y for just USD$27. Before you jump over though, let’s get into this review!

Review: Ink Mood Matte Tint (Peripera)

Peripera Ink Mood Matte Tint Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

The only thing I’m more obsessed with than eyeshadow palettes, are lip products. I had a pretty huge collection even before I really got into beauty blogging and it’s only gotten worse (in a good way). I recently got my hands on the entire collection of the Ink Mood Matte Tints from Peripera, and there are some beautiful shades here!

For those who don’t know, Peripera is the sister brand of CLIO and they are well known for their lip products. Although I’m not sure about the release dates, it seems that the Ink Mood Matte Tint have been released to be alongside the Ink Mood Matte Stick – so anyone who likes a matte, feathered finish can find it in either formula.

You can check out the Ink Mood Matte Tints at StyleKorean for just USD$7.90 (on sale from USD$12) and, of course, read on for the full review and lip swatches.

Review: Spot the Difference Blemish Treatment (AXIS-Y)

This is a sponsored (paid) post. Please note that referral links or codes may be used.

As someone who gets breakouts every few weeks and also has combination skin, I’m always on the look out for an acne treatment that can be used specifically in problem areas without affecting my entire face. And yes, AXIS-Y has answered my (or our) calls! The formulation of the Spot the Difference Blemish Treatment was inspired by their community. After coming across numerous stories from people struggling with self-confidence due to acne, AXIS-Y specially formulated this to spot target breakouts and blemishes.

I’ve been using this for the past three weeks in addition to a more moisturising skincare routine due to the seasonal changes. So far, I’ve been seeing great results so I’m really excited to be sharing this. The Spot the Difference Blemish Treatment is now available on the website for just USD$16 – which is a great price, in my opinion!

Visit their website or Instagram to check out their entire range. Before you do though, read on for my review!

Review: Baked Real Gel Nails (Edge U)

Edgeu Baked Real Gel Nails

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

I haven’t always been so dedicated about doing my nails. For the longest time, I was the girl with consistently chipped polished and misshaped nails – and I’m still like that sometimes. However, with the recent events and finding myself at home for months at a time, I came to really enjoy having my nails done! I have been experimenting with gel polishes and nail wraps, and came across a brand on StyleKorean that combines both of these. It was the first time that I’ve seen something like this so, naturally, my curiosity was piqued!

StyleKorean was generous enough to send over to me three different designs from the Edge U Baked Real Gel Nails, as well as an additional fourth design which I reviewed on my Instagram for their Try Me Review Me program. The designs that I’ll be reviewing here (with names as listed on the StyleKorean website to make it easier for you to search up) include:

  • Nail Egg Flower Heart Balloon
  • Nail Smile Check
  • Nail Coral Stone Blusher (currently out of stock)

Each of these are selling for USD$15 but they’re on sale too! All you need to make these work is a nail lamp and a gel top coat – both which you can also get from Edge U or use any that you already have at home. Optionally, you can also use a gel nail base to make these last longer but it isn’t really necessary.

If you’re keen to try these out, check them out at StyleKorean – they have both nail and pedicure designs to choose from. Before you do that though, read on and see how these look once applied too!
