Last year, I made a New Year’s Resolution to exfoliate more often. Well, so much for that one. I didn’t renew that resolution this year. My intentions were good, but it seemed to be too much to do at night before going to bed: applying a thick exfoliating cream with gritty beads that are hard to get off my skin and that may end up polluting the water. So, exfoliating became an every now and then thing.
A couple of months ago, I had an opportunity to try Radical Skincare Instant Revitalizing Mask, and here’s my review in case you missed it. Because of its heavenly citrus scent, the unique pop-rocks effect, and the fact that it doesn’t dry my skin, it is still my favorite mask. So I was eager to try another product from Radical Skincare, a good-for-you skincare brand created by two sisters whose father was a surgeon who helped heal patients who suffered from burns.
I’ve been using Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads every other night for several weeks, and I’m hooked. It is soooo much easier exfoliating with a saturated quilted cotton pad than dealing with an exfoliating cream and a face cloth. The pads are just about, if not completely, fragrance-free. I use the pad as if it were a toner with extra benefits.
In addition to removing any traces of my CC cream, it works to protect, repair and soothe my skin via its proprietary Trylacel technology that Radical Skincare describes as:
- combining “multiple antioxidants, maximum levels of anti-aging active ingredients, and soothing ingredients to deliver the best in protection and repair for all skin types.It maintains stability and potency of actives to deliver radical results.”
The exfoliating pads also contain AHA and BHA from fruit acid that exfoliate and provide anti-aging benefits as well as chamomile to soothe skin, especially sensitive skin and skin for over 40 gals.
Radical Skincare Anti-aging Exfoliating Pads:
- tighten and firm skin
- reduce the size and appearance of pores and fine lines
- remove excess sebum while maintaining the good skin oils that hydrate skin.
This product is a cinch to use, and it’s good for sensitive skin like mine, so there’s no reason for me not to use it. How nice is that? And as far as I’m concerned, more (anti-aging) is better!
Radical Skincare is sold at Sephora and sephora.com in the U.S. and Canada. The product contains 60 pads, a 2 month supply and is priced at $75 (US). Made in the U.S.
Radical Skincare Anti-aging Exfoliating Pads do not contain parabens, but they do contain the following ingredients:
