If you experience reactions to most skincare products (like excessive burning, stinging, or redness), you’re probably very careful about ingredient lists and what you put on your face.
When it comes to glycolic peels, the high concentration of free acids might not be suitable for those with sensitive skin and many products also contain drying ingredients like alcohol.
Fortunately, First Aid Beauty offers a super gentle daily peel for cleansing and exfoliating your skin without overdrying it and causing adverse reactions. The bestselling Facial Radiance Pads feature Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid with no alcohols or fragrances and are gluten-free and vegan.
These peel pads are best suited for daily use and help keep your skin clear of blemishes, dark spots, and uneven tone. When used regularly, it increases your skin’s natural rate of cell turnover to diminish the appearance of acne scars and promote a brighter-looking complexion.
Lemon Peel and Indian Gooseberry Extract help reduce hyperpigmentation by inhibiting melanin.
In addition, First Aid Beauty included their signature FAB Antioxidant Boosters, including:
- Licorice Root Extract: studies show that licorice root contains two extracts: i) Glabridin, which was 16x more powerful than hydroquinone at skin brightening in one study and ii) Liquiritin, which can help reduce uneven tone by distributing melanin more evenly (sources: Pigment Cell Research, 1998 and The Journal of Clinical & Aesthetic Dermatology, 2018).
- Feverfew Extract: a traditional herb used to treat fevers, migraines, and stomach aches. It has anti-inflammatory properties that may help calm sensitive and irritated skin (source: Pharmacognosy Review, 2011)
- White Tea Extract: the least processed type of tea that retains more antioxidant potency to protect your skin from free radical damage and maintain collagen & elastin levels (source: DermaDoctor)
Finally, customer reviews of Facial Radiance Pads have been stellar, with 2K+ ratings on Sephora and many comments of clearer skin, less congestion, fewer pimples, and no skin sensitivity.
My Verdict: Pick up a pack of First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads for gentle exfoliation that can help reduce breakouts, clear up congested skin, fade dark spots, and keep your skin feeling smooth.
