Radical Skincare is one of those brands I've always been curious about, but also avoided because of the high price tag. When I was given the opportunity to try out their new(ish) Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum, I jumped at the chance. My often dehydrated skin can always benefit from a serum!
Intended for all skin types, this serum meant to fight aging, improve firmness and elasticity, and keep skin hydrated. While I'm not certain I can speak to the anti aging properties of this serum, I can definitely speak to its effect on my skin hydration and overall tone.
From Radical Skincare:
ONE SERUM for all skintypes, all ages, all ethnic origins to fight 16 identified causes of aging. The triple potency action of Trylacel™ technology in a complete, universal and multi tasking serum designed to achieve fast and visible results. 13 active ingredients chosen for their efficacy ,their ability to work in synergy, their clinical results to reduce the deepest wrinkles, even skin-tone, improve skin elasticity and firmness.
Trylacel™ a radical breakthrough in suspension technology, keeps the antioxidant potency and performance in the cream to deliver maximum benefits and results quickly. By combining and encapsulating maximum levels of powerful antioxidants, clinically proven reparative and soothing agents in a bi-lipid membrane.
This serum is relatively light, and very much conventional in texture. I do have to note that this serum is lightly fragranced and that scent to me is a very traditional floral that may be hit or miss.
In terms of results, I do feel like this serum keeps my skin looking even, and I can often use this without any additional layers without feeling dehydrated. For me, that is a big deal, as it has been over a year since I've been able to feel hydrated with only one layer of product. My preference, however, is still to layer another moisturizing product on top.
Since I can't really speak to the anti-aging properties, I can't fully recommend that you purchase this very pricey serum. Perhaps I'll have someone try it out, and report back! As it is, it has functioned just fine for me with no adverse reactions in the weeks that I have used it.
What do you think about this serum from Radical Skincare? Is it something you would splurge on? Do you have any recommendations from the brand? I'd love to know!
