The Biome Comforting Infused Toner provides immediate hydration and improves the skin’s texture over time. The product is formulated with a blend of probiotics and prebiotics to help the skin’s barrier heal from environmental stressors. The product is also said to have “nourishing bubbles,” providing comfort and hydration to the skin.

After cleansing the skin, some people may experience a tightening sensation or extra dryness. This toner is said to rehydrate the skin quickly and helps clear the skin without any irritation.

Out of the three products from the ay&me line, this toner is my personal favorite! It is extremely lightweight yet hydrating.

Biome Radiating Intensified Essence Review

AXIS-Y Biome Radiating Intensified Essence Review

About the Product

The Biome Radiating Intensified Essence is an essence that is enriched with probiotics, prebiotics, Bifida Ferment Lysate, and other vitamins and proteins. The product targets not only nourishment but also signs of aging! The essence is enclosed in a unique dropper bottle, different from most packaging of other essences. The product’s texture is light and slightly tacky, almost a velvety texture that sinks into the skin beautifully without leaving a sticky mess!

Why Is It Good?

The product is formulated with 73% Bifida Ferment Lysate, which helps strengthen the skin’s barrier. The essence moisturizes the skin and provides the skin with a radiant glow. Not only that but also the product improves fine lines that are resulted from dryness. Since the product has a velvety fluid formula, the essence nourishes the skin without leaving a tacky finish! Overall, the product is said to help the skin become more resilient and healthy.

First Impressions

This is one of the first “anti-aging” skincare products I thoroughly enjoy. Typically, when I try a product that is said to target wrinkles, it tends to be thicker and leave an oily finish on the skin. However, this essence from the new ay&me line is completely different! The product sinks into the skin well and leaves my skin feeling light and refreshed! The product is light yet still hydrating enough for my dry to combination skin. Although I do not have any wrinkles to target, I believe this product will help slow down any signs of future aging!

Biome Recharging Night Renewal Set Review

AXIS-Y Biome Recharging Night Renewal Set

About the Product

This duo is said to lift and rejuvenate the skin overnight! The set includes a concentrate formulated with Panthenol to strengthen the skin’s barrier and provide a synergy when used with the balm. The balm is a thick gel-like consistency that nourishes the skin and gives an instant healthy glow. The dup helps to energize tired skin and protects the skin from aggravations caused by stress.

Why Is It Good?

The silky Panthenol concentrate allows the night balm to absorb better and gives the skin a recharging effect. The balm is a thick, soft, nourishing layer that leaves the skin healthy and glowy! The paired duo leaves the skin hydrated and repairs the skin’s barrier overnight.

First Impressions

At first, I was worried that this gel-texture balm would not be hydrating enough for my dry to combination skin. However, when used with the other products from the line, the balm is hydrating enough! I love how lightweight the product is without feeling overly sticky. The concentrate also provides an instant soothing effect. When paired with the balm, I can see a reduction in redness overnight. One thing to note is that due to the strong concentration of Panthenol in the concentrate, it is best to use as little product as possible!

Final Thoughts

Overall, I would say the ay&me line is meaningful and impactful due to the story behind the line. The products are all unique and perfect for all skin types! My favorite of the three would have to be the toner, although everything is amazing to have in your routine! If you are on the hunt for a perfect product for repairing the skin barrier and strengthening your skin’s biome, this is the line for you!
