For this reason, I am always on the look out for a nice serum that I can wear underneath my sunscreen. It is not easy to find one that I really like because I find many serums either unstable and irritating, or not moisturizing enough to be used alone (vitamin C serum, for example).
Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum checks off most of the things from the list I have for an "ideal serum".
Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum
"I hear that one actually works."
As you see from the ingredient list above, the serum is chockfull of antioxidants that are proven to be effective. I have seen similar ingredients used in other products, but I also learned most of these antioxidants loose the efficacy when put in cream or serum.
What makes Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum different is their Trylacel technology that enables these antioxidants to be delivered without losing the potency. Hence, the fast visible results.
It is housed in a twist-up pump bottle same as the Instant Revitalizing Mask (reviewed here).
Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum is actually in a light lotion consistency compared to many other liquid-y serums, and it is moisturizing without feeling greasy!
It sinks right in and my skin feels comfortable throughout the day even on the days when I wear a waterproof sunscreen.
The serum has a faint coffee-like tint and is fragranced.
Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum is designed for all skin types to work by itself or with additional moisturizers.
I initially used the serum only in the morning under sunscreen, but soon started using it twice a day because I was thrilled to see all the positive changes - incredibly supple yet firmer skin.
Since I have a normal/combination skin type and the weather is getting warmer, I find using the serum alone is more than enough for me.
As all treatments do, Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum works better if the skin is prepped with effective exfoliations.
On top of using this serum as my no fuss treatment/moisturizer, I add the Instant Revitalizing Mask and the Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads (reviewed here) once or twice. I haven't been able to keep my monthly facial appointments lately, but this combination seems to work the magic for me.
I wouldn't say this serum is perfect.
It contains a good amount of dimethicone and the fragrance is not exactly subtle. I personally don't mind it (actually I like a bit of cones), but please consider this if you're sensitive to silicones and scented products.
Another thing would be its rather steep price although it is debatable for me at this age if I am to spend a little more for something that works.
There is a value set with smaller sized products as well if you want to explore the line before fully committing.
