My Skin:
Before diving into my review, lets talk about my skin type. I think it always helps to know someone's frame-of-reference when reading a product review. :) My skin is classic combo skin: normal-oily in Summer (oil through t-zone) and normal-dry in the Winter. I just turned 40 (OMG! I am trying to embrace my age, but seriously...I just turned 40 on June 29th). So, I am trying to fight signs of aging. I pretty much just have fine lines at this point around my eye area. These are most apparent when my skin gets dehydrated. I do not break out often. However, I do get the occasional blemish on my chin. My skin is sensitive and prone to redness. I find that I can keep redness at bay with the right products. My biggest skincare concern and pet-peeve? My super dark under eye circles.

For this review, I tried out Radical Skincare's Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum. Antioxidant serums are something that I religiously use every day. So, I was super excited to find out how this one from Radical Skincare would work with my skin. This serum was formulated to "fight 16 identified causes of aging". To find out more about this amazing serum and how I like it, please click "read more" below!

Radical Skincare's Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum:
Radical Skincare states that this serum is for all skin types and that it fights the 16 identified causes of aging. When I heard this, of course I immediately wondered, "Hmm...So, what are the 16 causes of aging???"

Well, Here they are: The 16 Causes of Aging:
  • Poor or low hydration
  • Deterioration of cell regeneration
  • Glycation disorders
  • Slowing down of collagen synthesis
  • Free radicals
  • Nerve transmitter inhibition
  • Low elastin synthesis
  • Destruction of collagen and elastin fibers (MMP)
  • Weak cross-links between fibroblasts and collagen
  • Protection of defective stem cells
  • Pigmentation disorders 
  • Inflammation of Langerhans cells
  • Poor cellular respiration
  • Poor barrier effect
  • Weak dermo-epidermal junction 
  • Poor nutrition
The good news is that the Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum from Radical was created to fight these 16 things! This serum is a serious multi-tasker, lol! Radical Skincare really stresses that this serum is for *everyone*: All Skintypes and All Ages.

Radical Skincare created this serum to have as wide a reach as possible. It targets those 16 causes of aging with 13 anti-aging ingredients to defend skin with as many effective ingredients as possible in one serum. I know that I, for one, tend to layer a number of products at night to target different skincare and aging concerns. It is nice to know that using this one product is taking care of most of those concerns. Each ingredient in this serum has been vigorously tested by Radical Skincare to test for results. They wanted not only effective ingredients, but also ingredients that would work in synergy with each other.

Radical Results with Advanced Peptide Serum:
Here are the results that the brand promises:
  • Increased hydration and comfort
  • More permeable skin, better prepared to benefit from all other treatments
  • Less wrinkles and reduced wrinkle depth
  • Improved skin firmness and density
  • More even clear complexion
  • Firmer skin with better defined contours
  • Broad spectrum skin protection due to antioxidants
How I Use:
I use this serum every morning and evening after washing my face. In the mornings, it is the step before applying my daily SPF/lotion and in the evenings I apply before my Night Cream. The serum is completely non-greasy and it absorbs easily into my skin. I smooth about 1 pump's worth of product over my entire face.

I have gotten really great results with this serum. My skin is better hydrated when I use this product as an additional step in my skincare routine. I feel that my skin looks smoother and more even toned. Plus, I have not experienced any breakouts while using this product. My fine lines seem less apparent and more smoothed out as well. Plus, I know that the antioxidants in this serum are giving my skin a boost of protection as well as anti-aging prevention. I feel that this serum can both smooth out fine lines while also preventing new ones with its antioxidant protection!

I've tried and loved the facial pads by them!

Anastasia said...

I love the bottle design, it looks so fancy!

Unknown said...

My biggest problem with anti-aging products is that they usually assume I need really rich, heavy products because old skin=dry skin. For my over 40 face, that's just not the case, and I need something that isn't going to cause breakouts. Sounds like this one is made for all types of skin, which is great!
