Seriously Radical Skincare, You're Doing It Right!

I've had the pleasure of trying out another amazing product from Radical Skincare. So far I've loved the effects of each product I have tried and the Radical Skincare Age Defying Exfoliating Pads are no exception. 

One thing I love about Radical Skincare products is the beautifully elegant packaging. A sleek pearly silver jar with matching lid. It's a simple look yet so gorgeous you can't help but notice. 

I opened mine as soon as I got it. Despite the instructions saying to use it before bed. 7pm  that's bedtime enough for me. I just couldn't wait to try it for a couple of reasons. I was thrilled with the Instant Revitalizing Mask and loved the way the Youth Infusion Serum made my skin feel. I also have a big problem with dry, peely skin along my T-Zone area in the winter and am always looking for a good exfoliating treatment to help. (I usually do a deep exfoliation twice a week) And who doesn't want an age defying product? The whole idea behind this product seemed like a no brainer to me. 
The directions say to use this after you've cleansed your skin so I rushed upstairs to give my face a good scrub. 
Inside the jar were round pads reminiscent of a Stridex pad. It was smooth on one side and a bit rough on the other. I'm assuming this was the exfoliating side although you can't really tell a difference between the two. I can't lie, I had really hoped that the  "exfoliating side" was a bit rougher, something with more of an 80's Buff Puff texture if you can remember those. Nevertheless, I began rubbing the pad over my face making sure to give my forehead and nostril area a bit of extra TLC.

Immediately, I could smell the soothing scent of chamomile which I found pleasant. The witch hazel formula was cool and refreshing and as I used it, it really felt like my skin was actually clean. And it was...

LOOK AT ALL THAT DIRT!  I thought my daily cleanser was doing the job but clearly, Radical Skincare felt otherwise. Afterwards, my face felt clean and refreshed. I finished it off with a thin layer of serum which leaves my skin silky smooth.

Needless to say, it was a great experience which gave me peace of mind in knowing that I was going to sleep with a truly clean face. Knowing that my pores are being minimized and my youth is being rejuvenated was a bonus too. 

Overall, after first trying Radical Skincare's Instant Revitalizing Mask and now the  Radical Skincare Age Defying Exfoliating Pads, this line of skincare products really makes me rethink my traditional routine. The older I get the more I realize that my skin is so important and needs to be taken care of. I think that with a healthy diet and Radical Skincare products (which are conveniently found at Sephora), I can really get my skin to stay youthful for as long as I can and maintain radiant looking skin.
