First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Serum
I'm all about brightening and I had been interested in First Aid Beauty's Facial Radiance Serum for awhile. Once Summer was over the brightening kikcs into higher gear and so off I went to give Facial Radiance a go, After all, I could do with being radiant.
I have no problem with retinol products but I liked that this serum was non retinol based, since sometimes you need or want to switch it up. What it does have is licorice root extract, a water soluble type of Vitamin C called tetrahexyldecyl ascrobate and white tea leaf extract.
Facial Radiance is a very moisturizing serum. I was surprised to see shea butter in the ingredients along with grape seed oil. Oil usually makes me run for the hills and with my oiler combo skin I was concerned it might too much, but it's basically been just enough. Good moisture but not heavy.
It's been great on my skin using once and sometimes twice a day for 2 weeks and I've seen definite fading of some pigmentation , which makes me happy. I also noted a slight difference pretty quickly, less than a week I'd say. I use this as both treatment and moisturizer, as it's enough for my skin. If you have drier skin you might need a face cream as well after this.
The serum is pretty concentrated so you don't need a lot. Of course I am not using it on the T Zone so I might be using less than others. This would also be great on decollete as well.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Serum is $ 44 for 1 oz dropper bottle at
