Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum

I wouldn't leave this review if I didn't feel like it was my duty to inform you how amazing my skin looks/feels after using this for a couple of weeks. On lookfantastic.com, this serum is claimed to contain antioxidants and 'trylacel technology' involving the combination of antioxidant complex, repair actives and skin calming features which is probably why it comes at a hefty price. It also says that this serum is suitable for all skin types.

I have oily/combination skin and I had never used a serum before i had tried this. After my first use of this before bed, my skin felt so much smoother and in the morning, i noticed my skin was a lot clearer and had a much more healthier glow to it. Its absorbed quickly by your skin so you're not sat waiting around for your face to dry. I used it after my cleanser, toner and before my moisturiser. However, during my first week or so of using this every morning and night, my skin broke out more than usual as I felt the serum was somehow drawing out all my impurities. After that my skin just felt a lot more hydrated, healthier and skin tone more even. I also feel like I'm using waaay less foundation then i was prior to using this, as my acne and scarring are dissappearing and my skin is developing an even, bright tone without makeup. 

Disadvantages obviously include the price, which is definitely far out of a lot of people's budget just for a serum. However it could be justified by the less makeup you need to wear whilst using this, which is looking at this product as more of an investment. Also like i mentioned earlier, the first week of using this did cause me major breakouts so perseverance was the key to see the full effects of this serum. So if you do have the money to splash out and treat yourself to a serum I would highly recommend this if you have acne prone, oily/combination skin like me.

  2. This serum sounds amazing! I think I would brave the initial breakout to get the results you have had! Definitely sounds like it's worth the money!
