I am an admitted product junkie and skincare products are my absolute favorites, so I was so excited to try out a few products from Radical Skincare. Radical Skincare was started by two sisters who combined their work in the skincare industry with their experience observing their father’s work as a renowned plastic surgeon in the burn unit at U.Va. and their own personal contacts within the science and chemistry worlds. The result is a skincare line that blends both beauty and science to achieve radical results.
The first product I tried, the Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads, has Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids to exfoliate and increase natural cell turnover and added chamomile to calm the skin. Exfoliating is an essential part of my daily skincare routine and these pads have proven to be a gentle way of exfoliating my skin while also hydrating it – it’s definitely a departure from some exfoliating methods which irritate and redden sensitive skin.
I exfoliate my face with one pad three or four times a week after cleansing with my usual wash and then, once my skin is dry, I apply my night cream. After using the exfoliating pads for about a month, I’ve already noticed that my skin feels both smoother and softer.
I also have to point out the amazing packaging. It has a luxurious, weighty feel and it simply looks like a product that is using the latest in skincare technology.
