Radical Skincare Instant Revitalizing Mask: Review & Pics

Radical Skincare is fairly new on the market and I’ve had the opportunity to try a few products; see my review of the Radical Age Defying Exfoliating Pads here.  I was very impressed with those, but I’m a bit disappointed with the mask.

Radical Instant Revitalizing Mask - smells of delicious sweet orange, foams and doesn’t tingle, but you can tell it’s working. It feels like Rice Krispies; you are the cereal, the mask is the milk. When the milk (mask) hits the cereal (your face) you can feel the snap, crackle and pop! Apply to clean, dry skin and leave on until the foam dissolves–about 10 minutes, rinse off with water.

The mask comes out of the pump bottle (much appreciated) like a serum then turns into a foam after applying to the face. The foam then begins to warm just a tiny bit and dry–it doesn’t sting, tingle or burn so it’s very comfortable to wear for the full 10 minutes. It doesn’t leave my skin as soft as the Ellen Lange Retexturizing Peel, but it’s great for a quickie refresher.

Radical’s TRYLACEL Technology combines multiple antioxidants, a maximum level of anti-aging ingredients and soothing ingredients to deliver the best in anti-aging, protection and repair for all skin types.

According to the website:

“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.”

Pros:

  • Quick and easy to use
  • Smells divine
  • Feels invigorating
  • Easy to use packaging that maintains the stability and potency of the product

Cons: 

  • Doesn’t leave my skin as soft as Ellen Lange
  • Pricey for the lack of results
