With winter already settled here, it feels like a fresh new beginning. It’s the perfect time to try new things such as new skincare products. I am thrilled to work together with AXIS-Y to review their Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream! Not only their products are gentle and effective, but the the concept of their brand as climate-inspired personalised skincare is intriguing.
If you have sensitive and/or combination skin, prone to irritation, and you are looking for products that are gentle and soothing, yet effective, AXIS-Y products are definitely for you. For 20 days, I tested the AXIS-Y Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream every day as part of my morning and evening routine.

The focus of AXIS-Y is on the effects of the environment on the skin – the growing pollution, stressful factor and climate change. Together with travelling from one corner of the world to another, there are unique skin concerns that arise from going from one climate to the other and the need for personalised skincare. They are the first creators of climate-inspire skincare!
They are committed to their values of natural-derived skin-loving ingredients, safety, no animal testing, vegan-certified and effective formulas. I could immediately see their care for the environment by the packaging. So many companies use bubble wrap or packing peanuts and it breaks my heart a bit to see so much plastic. But AXIS-Y uses a special type of wrapping made of paper, a great eco-friendly alternative to bubble wrap. Their values and the feeling their products give is reflected in the cardboard packaging of each product also. The background of off-white with a tint of green, has accents of darker green (for the ingredients’ illustrations) and red (for the trademarked ‘6+1+1 Advanced Formula’). Not only that but also the containers of the products with green bottle, label that matches the box, and white caps. I highly enjoy using products that are soothing for the eyes and a pleasure to use, even before actually opening and using them.
Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream
The cream’s core ingredient is heartleaf, which is rich in anti-oxidants, and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The 6 base ingredients (Centella asiatica, sage, allantoin, liquorice, Sorghum, Aspergillum ferment) sooth the skin, regulate sebum, stimulate cell proliferation, deliver antioxidants, brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The main technology in the cream is the extraction and fermentation of Sorghum into Antoxyl_S II which helps protect the skin.
The consistency of the Heartleaf My Type Calming Cream is lightweight gel-type and it applies very easily. As usual with the AXIS-Y products, the texture is pleasant and the fragrance is subtle. It would be a great moisturizer in summer but in colder weather, it can definitely be added before sunscreen in the morning. For extra moisture I layer it 2-3 times and sometimes even add an oil as the final step of my night routine.
