Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads Review

Unless you were blessed with perfect genes then you know that maintaining healthy skin is an ongoing routine for most. Being that our skin is the largest organ of our body it also can be one of the most vulnerable which is why taking care of it is a necessity.  Being someone with oily/combination skin I like to keep a variety in my product arsenal. I'm also very passionate about staying youthful for as long as I can. Radical Skincare and it's age-defying properties claims to do just that! I recently put their exfoliating pads to the test and incorporated them with my current routine, did they deliver? Keep reading to find out!

The Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads are much like everyday cotton pads that you can purchase in drugstores except they are thinner and each is coated and packed with anti-aging ingredients that are proven to tighten and firm skin, reduce the appearance of pore size and lines, and preserve the skin's hydration and nourishment.

Glow: I've used these pads for just about a month now and I incorporate them into my nightly skincare routine, usually applying it right after cleansing and before moisturizing. Early on with using the pads I definitely noticed a significant difference in the firmness of my skin and my pore size - they seemed smaller and much smoother than before. I also love the fact that the pads give me a squeaky clean feeling without drying out my skin or making it feel tight. Another high-point for me is that even after using a scrub and wash I noticed a tiny bit of residue lifting from my skin onto the pad which clearly indicates that even your favorite cleansers could still be leaving something behind.

Glare: The only thing I did notice which isn't really a negative for me is that the moist pads did sting a little bit when I first applied them. It's nothing major or intolerable though and I think it could've been due to me using a scrub directly before and also having a few prior sensitive areas on my face from picking my skin (yes I pick my skin it's a bad habit I'm trying to break!) 

Would I Recommend It? I would! There's no overbearing scent and the results are noticeable within just a few uses. I also don't use these daily but more like 2-3 times a week and honestly it just depends on your skin and your preference but for me that's all my skin requires.

Where To Buy: The Radical Skincare Exfoliating Pads and the entire range of products can be found both in Sephora US and Canada. To learn more about the products or to purchase please visit www.sephora.com.
