Review: Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads

Saturday, January 11, 2014
I was kindly sent these exfoliating pads by Radical Skincare which I am grateful for - although this does not affect my opinions of the product, for more information on PR and my disclaimer, click here. I have never tried any kind of exfoliating skincare pads before so I was excited to try these out and I have never tried anything from the brand Radical Skincare until now. 
I have the *Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads (60 pads, £45). The exfoliating pads are moist and they contain 'Trylacel technology' which is a AHA and BHA multi fruit acid formula. I have never tried anything containing fruit acids before and I was a little bit wary. Although many exfoliating skin care products contain fruit acids - if you are looking into fruit acid skincare product, this may be a good place to start. The product claims to remove dead skin cells, tighten and firm the skin, reduce pore size and lines while keeping the skin hydrated and nourished. The packaging for the product is big and heavy, it feels very luxe and expensive!

I have been trying these skincare pads out for just over two weeks now and I have been using them at night after I cleanse my skin. I have been using them all over my chin, jaw, neck, nose and forehead - the places that have the most pores and can be less smooth. I am only 21 so I do not have wrinkles so I can't really comment on the lines/wrinkles aspect of this product. The pads are very quick, easy and fuss free to use which is great. I sweep the pad over the skin after cleansing and then let the liquid residue dry on the skin, which only takes about 30 seconds - then follow with my normal moisturiser. 

The biggest difference I have found while using this product is the reduction in pore size. I have really large pores on my nose and small but still noticeable pores on my chin and forehead. I find that since using these pads the pores on my nose (and my chin/forehead) have definitely reduced in size which is fantastic. The pores on my nose have been a bit embarrassing for me even with makeup on as they are so big but they have definitely reduced in size now. Also my skin where I have been using these pads is smoother, softer and slightly firmer too. 

I was a bit concerned about using these pads as I do have sensitive skin (although I didn't use these pads on the most sensitive areas, such as around my eyes and cheeks). I had nothing to be concerned about as I did not experience any negative effects with this product. 

Overall, I am really happy with the pads, after two weeks my skin is smoother, the pore size has been noticeably reduced and my skin feels slightly firmer. I am very happy with the results, also my skin doesn't feel stripped after using these pads. This product is a bit expensive but in my opinion they are worth it as a treat for the skin, they may be something to ask for as a present *cough, cough valentines day, cough*.

  2. I think the St. Ives Apricot Face Scrub is the perfect everyday exfoliator, and I love my Clarisonc Mia for a daily exfoliator as well!
