At the expense of sounding a bit like a broken record, I must once again profess my undying love and commitment to Radical Skincare. As I have previously stated, the story of the Edlich sisters and their approach to creating the best skincare products filled with the highest quality ingredients for themselves, and without the intention of bringing the line to market is nothing short of inspirational.
Please take a moment to read their radical story can be read here and here.
What Liz & Rachel created in their lab sample bottles which they labeled with a magic marker and used for themselves and their friends radically changed their skin. Liz was stopped on the street asking what she used on her skin, Rachel's Rosacea cleared and friends called having similar experiences and wanting more.
Radical Skincare utilizes Trylacel Technology because it, "enables the maximum concentration of actives for maximum delivery to the skin, and for all skin types." Likewise, "it keeps the antioxidant potency and performance in the cream to deliver maximum benefits and results quickly."
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

My experience: As improbable as it may seem, my skin felt indescribably fantastic after just a single use of Radical Anti-Aging Replenishing Extreme Moisture. This deeply nourishing cream made my skin feel profound and immediate hydration, and it had an obvious brightening effect. My skin was left soft, supple, smooth, and very moisturized. After more than a month of use I noticed a softening of my fine lines, and while my skin is not slack it appeared to have improved elasticity. It is neither too thick, nor too thin, and it boasts the perfect amount of richness. It sinks in quickly and leaves behind no greasy film or residue, and it delivers the perfect amount of hydration wherever it is needed. Initially I thought that this cream might have been too rich for my decidedly combination skin, however using it soon allayed my fears. This cream is very gentle so even those for whom sensitive skin is an issue will benefit from this amazing product. I have many many facial creams, but this is by far the one that I reach for the very most. It is very concentrated-- so a jar will last a long time.

Wow this just completely sold me....! I'll have to find out where I can get Radical Skincare in Australia now! :)ReplyDelete
Eat. Live. Love. Repeat.
Hi Phoebe, Radical Skincare has truly amazing products, and this cream is among my favorites! I hope that you can track it down in Australia! Keep me posted-- I would love to know what you think of it! :)Delete
You have convinced me my darling! I need this in my life. I actually, for my age, don't really have wrinkles, except on my forehead. I bear the mark of being my father's daughter with a visible double wrinkle right above my eyebrows. It could have been worse, my father has three furrows ready for some rice plantation; they are huuuuuge. But if that woman in that picture had rosacea and now she doesn't, I believe my red fat cheeks can finally be less, well, what's the word, childish? unbearable? impossible?ReplyDelete
The skin of my face looks a lot darker than the rest of my body, which is rather fair, just because of the massive redness. I dream of some degree of uniformity between my body and my face. It will make buying foundation less troublesome. I usually mix 2 different foundations with Le Blanc de Chanel (which I absolutely adore, above any other primer and highlighter) to reach some unifying color but my red cheeks are always red, no matter what I do. I am torn though, Helen, help me out here if you can offer your advice. I wanted to try the Organic Pharmacy Rose Plus Face Cream but after your review, I am not sure what is best for me :/
Have a wonderful Wednesday. hugs to you and your feral ones,
Ahhhh great genes!! A genetic double wrinkle above the eyebrows seems more like character/expression lines than "wrinkles."Delete
Rachel had a very bad case of Rosacea, and looking at her skin now you would never know it! I also have the Organic Pharmacy Rose Plus Anti-Aging Face Cream (I haven't had the chance to review it yet), and I think that you might prefer the Radical Cream. Of course you could get samples of both to see if you prefer one over the other. That said, the Radical cream is SO GENTLE and did wonders for Rachel's Rosacea!
i tried their anti-aging restorative moisture and found it not quite hydrating enough. maybe i'll give one a try insteadReplyDelete
Hi Chia-Yi, I suspect that you will find this one hydrating enough. It can also be boosted by layering it over your favorite serum. I generally layer it over one of my favorite face oils, but sometimes I just use this cream by itself. Let me know what you think of it if you give it a try! :DDelete
Hello, as always thank you for such beautiful full detailand honest opinion about products you review. I am an addict to your blog and trust everything you recommend. Do you think the radical anti aging restorative moisturizer will give enough hydration for my combination skin? I think you reviewef the one for the dry skin. Also, I need to buy a face oil and i am new to oils, I am confused between sponge ladi avokanto oil face our one of the new Sunday Riley new ones. . What do you recommend? Thank youReplyDelete
Hi yaraa! Thank you so much for your lovely kind words! I am so glad that you enjoy my blog, and find my reviews useful. I have used several deluxe samples of the Radical Anti-Aging Restorative Moisturizer and this one, and that both work very very well for my combination skin. Both offer more than enough hydration for my skin. I do not find this one to be too rich for my skin, and I do have a very active t-zone. If at all possible, you might try to get samples of both to see which one works better for you. I don't think that you could go wrong with either. I still have one deluxe sample of the anti-aging restorative that I do use periodically, but right now I find that I reach for the Replenishing Extreme more than anything else in my skincare arsenal! I definitely prefer Ladi Avokanto to the SR oils-- it sinks in so much faster and nourishes the skin so quickly leaving behind a glorious glow. However, the oils that I have been reaching for the most lately are the African Botanics Neroli Infused Marula oil and their Marula Oil (I have not reviewed the latter yet, but have reviewed the former)Delete
This is a magical oil that is so effective and hydrating and nourishing the skin. Everything that I have tried from African Botanics has simply amazed me. I am testing out their new eye cream and Mineral Cleansing Mask right now, and am so in love with them. Each time I open one of their products to use them I feel happy and uplifted. If you are near a SpaceNK it should be pretty easy to get samples of the African Botanics oils and Radical Skincare creams. However, I do still use Ladi Avokanto and definitely still love it! I hope that this helps, rather than further complicated your choices!
Thank you for such prompt response, unfortunately i do not have a space NK next to me, I live in GA.. but excuse my so many questions. .I am currently using good genes from Sunday Riley. . Do you think i can use the oil you mentioned instead of that or just layer or on top. . Also, what serum do you recommend? I am in my late thirties but i love to explore and try new skincare within a reasonable budget.. thank you!ReplyDelete
Absolutely my pleasure! Feel free to call the SpaceNK that I work with in Sherman Oaks and tell them that I sent you (818) 325-2483. Anytime that you place orders with them they can ship to you, and just request samples-- they are very generous and super helpful. You can always ask for the manager Sheri, but all of her staff is extraordinary! Ask as many questions as you like-- I am happy to help you in any way that I can! I don't use Good Genes that much these days, but when I do I always use it under the oil that I am using, and I have used it with Ladi and the Marula Oils. I always just experiment to see what works best for me. The serums that I am using these days are the Radical Skincare Peptide Serum (I will be reviewing it soon, but I really love it), but I also have some samples of their Youth Infusion Serum that I really want to get in the full size. One of the lovely people from Radical gave me a facial and used this serum and I was delighted by the radiance and hydration that I experienced. They are also coming out with a few new products that are going to be mind-blowing! I also am a huge fan of The Organic Pharmacy Serums. Their Antioxidant Face Firming Serum is one of my favorites, but it is also an oil:Delete
I also love their Rose Plus Marine Brightening Serum (I haven't written a review yet, but have an overview):
And I also love their Rose Plus Marine Collagen Complex:
All of these are stupendous products, but the real question is what are you looking for in a serum, and what do you want it to do? You can spend piles of money on things that you don't need, and it is so easy to do. Are you looking for antioxidant rich anti-aging products, or products that treat very specific issues like hyperpigmentation etc. Keep me posted! Have a lovely weekend! :-)
I am absolutely convinced I need this in my life, fantastic review!ReplyDelete
Hi Tina! I'm so glad that you liked the review! It is just the most remarkable cream! I love everything about it, and my poor other creams are quite neglected as a result! It is really well worth trying! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :DDelete
it me, the annoying yaraa again.. how do you feel about using hair care or skin care with silicone and dimethicone?I hear out of not too good..I wad ready to order the rodial moisturizer when I found dimethicone in the ingredients.. what's your intake on that? as always, then you for your wonderful posts and opinion.... have a nice night...ReplyDelete
You aren't at all annoying!!! Well, for me personally I tend to prefer products with fewer silicones in them. Part of this is because I tend to prefer products with high quality natural ingredients, but also because products that contain too many silicones tend to irritate my skin when used over a period of time. They don't bother my hair so much, but I do also like using hair oils that don't contain silicones. I do, however, use several styling products (and those that tame frizzies) that do contain silicones. I think that it all depends on what you are looking for, and whether you are sensitive to products that contain silicone. Have a wonderful day!
Now I want this. I don't know if I need this! I am accumulating so many new things since starting with your blog that I may never use them all. How do you keep up? I am getting confused....ReplyDelete
Radical is an amazing line, and I absolutely love this cream.They make such effective products, and this is definitely one of my all-time favorite creams. It's really great this time of year too! You can't really compare my usage with that of a normal consumer though– because I am always testing out new products and new lines in order to report my findings to you. That way you can sift through the products that I try and see which ones sound like a good fit for you. Try not to become confused by it– instead think about what types of products you need or want, and then you won't find yourself purchasing things unnecessarily. I have also always spent a lot of money on skincare (long before the blog) because I really truly love skincare products and always like to try new things. Of course I do have tried and true favorites, but those often change over the years as well.Delete
Would you say this is a deep enough moisturizer for Winter in the Northeast (for mature skin)? I do not have combination skin but normal to dry (and seemingly getting dryer as I age). (I am already thinking about the next big event at either SpaceNK or Barneys which appears like it might be February from your past reviews.ReplyDelete
Well, given how bitter cold your winters are, and that your skin is on the dryer side you might want to layer this with one of your beauty oils. This pairs very nicely with the African Botanics Neroli Infused beauty oil that you have! You might see if your Space NK has a sample of this that you can try. I really love it, and suspect that you would like it as well. You got it right– February is the next time that we will see those events for both!Delete
I'm going to write this down so I can ask when I am near SpaceNK. It is a distance from me and not a place a venture to regularly. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Good idea, of course I will also be announcing the events and details as soon as they are sent to me! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving! :-)Delete
I was in the area of SpaceNK today and stopped in. I tested a bit on my hand and was given two packets to try. I am looking forward to trying it. I just have to decide what to pair it with when testing as that might make a difference. My latest routine is cleanse, oil, serum, moisturizer. But, which ones...that is the question (since I don't own other Radical products). Oh, wait, maybe I got one in either the Barneys or SpaceNK bonus in October.....ReplyDelete
