My continued and ever-growing love affair with Radical Skincare surely comes as no surprise-- since I wax poetic about the line every chance that I get. I am very compelled by the Edlich sisters, and after having met and spoken to Rachel extensively-- I can tell you that my admiration for the Edlich's coupled with my unmitigated love of their products is very well-deserved. As I have said before, their radical story is uplifting and inspirational-- and their products are among the very best that I have ever had the pleasure of using. Read my reviews of Radical Hydrating Cleanser and Radical Revive Eye Crème and you will understand why I am over-the-moon about Radical Skincare. Please take a moment to read Rachel and Liz Edlich's inspirational booklet that documents their approach to radical living-- it is very uplifting and edifying.
At the core of Radical Skincare is Trylacel Technology:
Fighting Free Radicals Damage and Aging with antioxidants: Antioxidants are the best defense against free radical damage and aging. The strongest antioxidants are found in nature’s dark night shade fruits like resveratrol, coffee berry, acai, grapeseed, red wine extract, pomegranate, and cranberry to name a few. Multiple antioxidants are required to fight the numerous types of free radicals. Using one or two antioxidants is simply not enough.
When antioxidants are combined with reparative ingredients in a cream they break down and lose their power, rendering them ineffective to protect your skin from this free radical assault and therefore daily deterioration continues aging your skin. Until now.
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.
Instant Revitalizing Mask is the ultimate antidote for "dull, out-of-breath skin." After shaking the bottle to evenly distribute the ingredients, and to activate the oxygen bubbles, you apply an even layer over your face, neck and décolleté and simply wait for the magic to begin. When you pump it out it resembles a serum, but in about a minute it begins to turn into a luxuriously light and creamy oxygenated foam. Soon after, the foam gives way to tiny little bubbles that percolate against the skin, and they feel more like elegant lightly bursting Champagne bubbles, rather than Pop Rocks. The experience is soft, gentle and invigorating. After about 3-5 minutes the mask dissipates and one then rinses the remaining residue from the face. The first time that I used it I was astounded by the immediacy of the results. My skin had that revitalized oxygenated flush that one tends only to see after a professional facial, but Instant Revitalizing Mask was able to achieve the same results in only 5 minutes!
Radical Skincare claims that Instant Revitalizing Mask boosts skin's radiance with effervescent bubbles, and hydrates and nourishes "hungry skin" with vitamins and oxygen. They also claim that it softens, smooths, and makes skin glow in minutes. I often find that skincare companies have trouble delivering on all of their claims, but that simply isn't the case with Radical Skincare. If anything, they understate the efficacy of their products. After using the mask my skin is unbelievably radiant and luminous-- something akin to a very healthy glow. Skin is immediately transformed from dull to radiant, and has the added benefit of being deeply nourished and hydrated. My skin is left soft, smooth, supple, and glowing-- the results are really that remarkable. In my closet filled with masks I don't have anything that produces such radical results! Furthermore watching the metamorphoses from serum to creamy foam to bursting oxygenated bubbles is fun, and it feels wonderfully refreshing against the skin!
The Instant Revitalizing Mask is the ideal coach for the skin: it delivers the nutrients necessary for hydration and regeneration while teaching it to breathe, stock up on energy and optimize its oxygen resources in rarefied conditions.
-Optimize oxygen resources for a lasting youthful glow
-Stimulates energy production
-Controls oxidation reactions
REMEMBER- Shake to Activate the oxygen bubbles to carry these anti aging nutrients to energize your skin.Then pump to release the Radical goodness and enjoy!
This is how the mask appears after you initially apply it to the face.
Here you can see the luxurious creamy foam forming.
Now the bubbles are percolating and beginning to burst.
Green Coffee: The hydroxyl radical is an extremely reactive free radical formed in biological systems and has been implicated as a highly damaging species in free radicals pathology, capable of damaging almost every molecule found in living cells. This radical has the capacity to conjugate with nucleotides in DNA and cause strand breakage, having far reaching implications leading ultimately to carcinogenesis, mutagenesis and cytotoxicity. Green Coffee is a good scavenger of active oxygen species, and a very strong antioxidant.
Vitamin E: This active ingredient preserves the skin against aggressivity of free radicals created by oxydation coming from exposure to pollution ,excess of sun and age.
