It's happened again. I've stumbled across a product that I have decided I can't simply live without. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads. I received a free "sample" (28 pads, a month supply!) with my most recent Beauty.com order. At first I thought they were acne treatment pads, which I don't need. Acne products dry out my skin with a quickness, so I was ready to give the pads away. Then I read the words on the container. (always recommended).
They are pads meant to brighten your skin, and leave it glowing. So I tried one out, and I am not kidding you when I say that I noticed a difference IMMEDIATELY. My skin looked brighter and cleaner and simply better.
They didn't dry my face out at all, probably because these pads are formulated without chemicals. The brightening and toning effect comes from cucumber, lemon peel, and licorice root.
The pads are meant to be used after cleansing, before any treatment or moisturizer. So I'll be using them in the morning after my cleanser and before moisturizing. The directions say to use at night too, but I don't need my face to look radiant for my pillow, so I'll be skipping that particular advice.
The retail price is $28 for 50 pads. I would use these once a day, so that works out to about 50 cents per pad. Not the cheapest, but I'll be trying to combine it with a good deal and/or waiting until a good promotion at Sephora, Ulta, or Beauty.com that involves free stuff.
