Hey gang! Today I'm showing you a product I just started using and have fallen in love with! I'm at the unfortunate stage in life where I have to deal with both acne and the beginnings of wrinkles and fine lines. Isn't that wonderful?! I've been using several different products to deal with my complexion, like a salicylic acid serum, a retinol moisturizer, a vitamin C serum, and so forth.
But then I recently got the opportunity to try out a product that combines all those lovely ingredients in one! The Radha Beauty Skin Clearing Serum claims to be a fix for all sorts of complexion problems, including:
- acne and clogged pores
- hyperpigmentation and scarring
- redness and inflammation
- fine lines and other signs of aging
The serum dispenses via pump and has a thin, watery texture. One pump is enough to cover my whole face, so this 1-oz. size should last me a while. It applies to the skin very smoothly and dries quickly without any gross residue.
So how does the Skin Clearing Serum perform? I've been using it twice a day for two weeks, and I was surprised to find that within days, my skin became noticeably smoother! It's kept my breakouts in check about as well as my other salicylic acid product. I also haven't noticed any extra dryness from the serum. Obviously I can't speak to its long-term effects, but so far I am really loving the fact that I can replace a whole list of products with this one serum!
The only real downside I have found is that some of the ingredients in the serum, like tea tree and retinol, can be irritating. I don't have sensitive skin, but I started to get irritation on the skin near my eyes (I don't mean my undereye area, but my cheekbone/temple). So I would definitely do a patch test of this serum before use, especially if you know you have sensitive skin.
The serum also has a fairly strong herbal smell, mostly from the tea tree, I think. It doesn't bother me, but some people are sensitive to strong scents!
Overall, I am a huge fan of this serum and will probably repurchase it once I run out! The Radha Beauty Skin Clearing Serum is available on Amazon for $21.89 at the moment, down from $60.
