First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads Review

A true unsung hero for a perfectly balanced complexion

This product is a lifesaver.  Though a mouthful, the name speaks volumes about the results you get.  Case in point, just a few weeks ago I had a pesky breakout from using a new product and these toner pads got my skin back to normal within a week!  This after trying some other acne spot treatments for a few days.  Thank you First Aid Beauty, thank you.  I will never be without a stash of these again.

I’m a big fan of the First Aid Beauty line in general.  These are no-frills products but get the job done, and I know won’t make my sensitive skin react.  Their Face Cleanser is a staple in my bathroom, and whenever I need a no nonsense solution I check out this line first.  Simplicity, effectiveness and gentleness at a good price point-  that is what I expect when I buy a First Aid Beauty product.

I’ve been using the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads now for over 3 years.  I use them once a day in the evening after cleansing, but they can be used twice a day (although I find this cost prohibitive since you only get 60 pads for $30).  One pad is saturated well enough to cover your whole face, neck and chest area.  I love the gentle physical exfoliation the pad provides and how fresh and clean my face feels afterward.  It does leave your skin slightly moist which I find helps the serums I put on afterward absorb much better.

Other reasons I like these pads:

  • Contain Lactic & Glycolic Acid to exfoliate, yet still are gentle
  • Give off a subtle but nice glow/brightening effect once applied
  • Contain no alcohol like so many toners tend to
  • Leave skin smooth after application
  • Help with wrinkles:Although this is not the intended purpose of these pads, I find they minimize the pesky wrinkles on my forehead.  When I don’t use these, the wrinkles seem to come out of nowhere overnight.

If you’re looking for more immediate and instant results, then this product is not for you.  The effects are cumulative and subtle which is why I have found myself straying in the past to try different products.  On past occasions, I’ve told myself I would save money and try a liquid toner that would last longer than these single use pads.  I’ve tried stronger formulations for more brightening and exfoliation.  Yet I always come back to these because every time I stray, I’ve come to regret it.  This product, without me being completely aware, is what helps keep my skin clear, balanced and smooth.

I will never cheat on you again Facial Radiance Pads, never.
