#ButFirstSunscreen, that’s how my skincare game runs now! Since last month I’ve been trying out AXIS-Y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen. Axis-Y, a Korean skincare brand, is a fairly new skincare brand to me. I’m getting to know a couple of their products, along with this AXIS-Y Complete No-Stress Physical Sunscreen at the moment.
So far it turned out to be a simplistic yet effective skincare range just as their packaging looks. Let me tell you my detailed experience with this AxisY Physical Sunscreen…
What is AXIS-Y No-Stress Physical Sunscreen?
It’s as it says a physical sunscreen. With generous sun protection with SPF 50+ PA++++. Which means it protects skin from UVA+UVB rays. Contained Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide give broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
ASIS-Y No-Stress Sunscreen Claims to give no white cast, dryness and is safe for sensitive skin. It has no mineral oils in it, no fragrance, no parabens, and no animal ingredient. Has a skin-friendly blend of ingredients (patented SYN-COLL ingredient) that calms and relieves the skin while doing the main job – protecting from sun rays.
Axis-Y Physical Sunscreen has Artemisia Capillaris Extract (0.005%) along with Chamomile and Squalane which are popular for their anti-bacterial properties. There are more; e.g. Grape Seed Extract, Green Tea, and Calendula extract for wound-healing, anti-aging benefits, and skin rejuvenation. This sunscreen also has Niacinamide (2%) in it to give the skin brightening and skin-balancing effect.

How To Use Axis-Y Sunscreen
It’s just as usual. Wash your skin and apply all your daily skincare products. Shake the sunscreen tube dispense a generous amount of sunscreen and apply it to your face, neck, ears, and decolletage. Do re-apply in a minimum 3 to 4 hours gap during the day.
I couldn’t find anything about Axis-Y sunscreen to be waterproof so if you’re going to the pool you might want to switch to a waterproof one.
My Experience with AXIS-Y No-Stress Physical Sunscreen
The Physical sunscreen has a creamy texture. Gives a whitish layer initially and takes a minute or two to absorb into the skin. It’s a bit oily at first but after spreading it evenly it becomes less oily. When the sunscreen is blended properly it leaves no white cast however if not blended properly whitish layer feels obvious and also skin feels slightly sticky.
In the final finish, it leaves the skin matte.
I like a dewy feeling and look in my skin, all the time. Hence when I’m using this sunscreen I make sure I’ve used a hydrating skincare product (serum or moisturizer) underneath.
When it’s about sunscreen my personal preference is a hybrid or chemical sunscreen. Mainly because a physical sunscreen feels heavier than a chemical sunscreen. It’s normal, a physical sunscreen requires more product to protect the skin from the sun as it lays on the top of the skin. With that being said, I find AxisY sunscreen is considerably lightweight.
The dispensing nozzle of AXIS-Y sunscreen is something I really like. This nozzle makes it super convenient to apply the right amount of product to the skin. Also the 50ml packaging of it I find good enough to use for a couple of months.
Are you a mommy to be? Wondering if AXIS-Y Sunscreen is safe during pregnancy?
All physical sunscreens are and this one as well. This stays on the top of your skin nothing much going inside. And whatever going inside like niacinamide or such isn’t harmful to pregnancy at all.Tweet
Do I recommend Axis-Y Sunscreen?
Yes, it’s a good one especially if you’re a fan of physical sunscreen and matte finish on the skin.
I’m almost halfway around finishing the tube. I also have it on my repurchase list if I feel like switching to a matte finish sunscreen. Especially I feel this sunscreen going to be a great choice when I’m in humid weather.
PS: I have got a combination skin type.
That’s it for this post. Do read my other AXIS-Y product review, Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum, in case that’s something you have in your mind.
