I think for once, I’m actually keeping my promise and talking about the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads today. But first, this needs a backstory
A few weeks ago, I walked into Sephora to get one of those fun sheet masks. Those masks make me laugh and also help my skin too…in fact, I have one on now while I’m typing this out! If you must know, I have on the Dr. Jart’s Hydration Lover™ rubber mask. Anyway, this Sephora employee was asking me about my skin and I told her that I have combo/oily acne prone, yet sensitive skin. She said since I love sheet masks, to try the Hydration Lover™ versus the one that is for acne prone skin just to see how it works.
Later on after perusing the rest of Sephora’s skincare section, the same employee found me again and showed me the new Philosophy Renewed Hope tinted moisturizer. The color that she tried on me is a little too dark, however, I got my hands on some Glossier drops (like Cover FX drops) that can help change the color of any foundation or BB cream or tinted moisturizer. The Renewed Hope goes on really well and gets really great reviews. I think that is a future must have once it begins to get really hot!
As I was about to walk out she gave me a card so that I can come back and get a mini facial sometime soon and recommended the First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads to help with my breakouts and hyperpigmentation.
Last week, I was at a different Sephora and decided to pick them up because they were only $30. I read the reviews before actually purchasing and it gets pretty mixed reviews, but I went with my gut and purchased it anyway.
These FAB Radiance Pads are amazing for skin that is sensitive AND acne prone. Initially, the pads did sting a little bit but it goes away pretty quickly. The first night I used them, I woke up the next morning with actual radiant skin even with all of my dark spots. I was not expecting much at all because I had always been a little skeptical of FAB products. It’s only been four days since my purchase and I already love the FAB Radiance Pads. You guys know I love waking up with a nice healthy looking glow!
The pads contain glycolic and lactic acid…at this point, I’m sure you guys are tired of hearing about AHA’s and the such so I won’t go into detail about that. The main reason I like these pads are because they are very gentle with my skin and can be used every day if necessary. Also, these FAB Pads are definitely affordable compared to Drunk Elephant’s TLC Framboos™ Glycolic Night Serum which in my opinion work the same way.
I do not recommend these pads for someone who has used strong forms of glycolic and lactic acid. So, if you’ve done acid peels or anything of the sort, these pads may not work as well for you.
I will have a more in-depth review pretty soon, but I want to include some other products (Glossier drops, Renewed Hope, Micellar Water, etc) along with the FAB Facial Radiance Pads. Also, I want to use them longer and actually have some before and after results this time around. So, that should be up on here in a couple of weeks! I can’t wait!!
