When it comes to good skincare, I am all for worthwhile splurges. After all, your face is a canvas that has to be in the best shape possible for a great makeup application. Can I say the $190 Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum is worthy of the high price tag?
The Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum is billed as a serum that will work universally for all skin types, ages, and ethnicites to fight the 16 causes of aging. These 16 aging agents include free radicals, poor nutrition, glycation disorders, and the slowing down of collagen synthesis. I’m all for products that fight any causes of aging!
What’s key about this serum is that each ingredient has been subject to vigorous lab testing to make sure they’re effective and work with each of the 13 main ingredients that include 9 powerful antioxidants and 2 hexa peptides reinforced by Trylacel proprietrary technology. This serum has been shown to improve elasticity, firmness, clarity, and brightness in the vast majority of those who have used it in 4 week clinical trials.
You use this product as the first step in your skincare routine, applying a moisturizer on top. While I think this is a good product and has ingredients that will work to improve the appearance of skin, unfortunately my skin did not have a good reaction to this serum. I gave it a full four week trial period and found in that time my skin broke out to the point where I had to discontinue use, something that is unusual in my case. While I’ll get monthly hormonal breakouts, it’s not typical for me to experience continued breakouts on my forehead and cheeks, which is what happened with the use of this product.
Knowing how many other people really enjoy and have benefited from this serum, I hesitate to give it a completely bad review, but all I will say is that your experience will vary with any product.
My Final Thoughts: Unfortunately Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum did not work for me and I had to discontinue use. However, many others have had positive reactions and I encourage you to do further research if you’re considering purchasing this product.
