My skin is super dull! Those who suffer from the same skin prob know exactly what I mean. It’s just that lack of glow, that freshness, the look of health…sadly my skin doesn’t have it. I have to rely on a good base product to give me that lively glow that I’m seeking otherwise I’m ghastly to say the least.
I’m always searching for the best best thing to ease the dullness. Could be lack of those 8 glasses of water I’m drinking, too many late nights, or maybe just the weather but I’m definitely always looking for that perfect product to eliminate the problem!
Recently, I came across First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads and decided to give ’em a whirl, hey, this could be the next best product to give me that “glow” I’m seeking.
Let’s check ’em!
A super gentle skin renewal pad that contains lactic and glycolic acids. Cucumber and Indian gooseberry tone your skin while lemon peel and licorice root leave skin bright and glowing.
These are super gentle so if you’re sensitive have no worries about trying them particularly because First Aid Beauty caters to those with sensitive skin and honestly, just testing this out for myself, I can feel that they are pretty darn delicate on my skin. My own skin is dry at the moment with areas of flakiness between my brows and patchy spots on my cheeks, not pretty and this is one reason my skin looks dull. Exfoliation helps in a major way however in between exfoliating I need something to help ease the dullness as honestly, too much scrubbing causes even more dry skin so I stick to a once a week treatment to scrub away dryness, flakes, etc…
These come in a larger jar and have a 60 pad count for $28. I do think it’s a rather decent price for the amount you’re getting as this is two months of usage.
Each pad is saturated quite nicely with the formula so the pads aren’t dry, you get a very nicely saturated pad for each use. They have a very, very subtle fresh scent to my nose but nothing crazy or dramatic. I smooth them on first thing in the AM after my shower and proceed to dress, do my hair, etc…prior to following up with my other AM products as I give the formula a chance to absorb into my skin. They leave my skin feeling a tad tacky at first but as minutes go by my skin feels smoother and hydrated.
After two weeks of use I feel like they have aided in easing the dullness. Results aren’t dramatic and my face isn’t glowing and looking amazing however my face looks considerably better. I’ve taken to using them occasionally in the PM as well when I’m taking a break from my Philosophy pads. They make a great prep for my moisturizer in the morning as well!
I don’t have anything to rant about at the moment to be honest…I’m really enjoying these!
- Anyone with certain dullness that needs a little extra helping hand to make their skin look more alive.
- Anyone with sensitive skin that desires a bit of an extra glow (the treatment is super gentle and your skin will have a bit of a glow with continued use).
- Anyone who wants incredible results (results will vary obviously and in my case I felt they were subtle but enough of a result to warrant a repurchase in my humble opinion).
I liked these alot and felt they were well worth a pick up once I run out. I normally use a mist and a toner prior to my moisturizer in the morning and this eliminates those two steps as this aids my moisturizer to absorb easily. I felt like they eased my dull skin quite a bit as my skin is looking quite lively again!
Worth a haul in my humblest.
