First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

I have had these on my wishlist for the longest time so when I placed a slightly big order with Feel Unique last month I knew I wanted to try these First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads. I had heard nothing but amazing things about these but I must admit, I haven't been all that impressed with them and feel like I have wasted £12 when I could have just purchased a high street alternative and they would have done a better job.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
The First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads are available in two difference sizes of 28 pads and 60, I went for the smaller size. These pads contain the perfect amount of lactic and glycol acids to make them safe yet effective to be used on a daily basis. They are free from parabens, harsh chemicals and colourants and can be used on all skin types even the most sensitive skin. These pads claim to diminish the appearance of fine lines, reduce visible pores while improving the skins clarity. 

They way people talk about these pads makes them sound life changing when personally I found the ones I had from Nip+Fab to do exactly the same thing at a faction of the price. I used these pads as part of my morning skincare routine every day for around three weeks and in all honesty, I haven't noticed that much of an improvement in my skin. I have since stopped using them and my skin is still exactly the same so I am so happy I didn't purchase the 60 pad tub now! While they are great to use in the morning to add a little more exfoliation into your skincare routine they just aren't life changing. 

The one thing I did notice from using these pads that my skin had more clarity in my forehead and cheeks but that was about it. It didn't do anything for my pores and they are pretty visible which is the main reason why I purchased these and they didn't make my skin any brighter. As these are exfoliating I expected them to make the skin softer but again, nothing. I really didn't want to give these a negative review but they just didn't do anything that great for my skin. I definitely won't be purchasing these again but I do want to try out some other skincare products from First Aid Beauty as I have heard really good things so if you have any product recommendations please let me know what I should try next! 

Have you tried these? What did you think of them?

  1. These sound amazing, but one very quick question - so do these work much like a facial wipe? Silly question but how do you use this?

  2. I'm with you re. the Nip & Fab ones, I've never tried these myself but I think I prefer an acid toner on a normal cotton pad anyway!

  6. I've not tried them but they sould good as they don't have parabens. I'll be honest, I use babywipes a lot of the time as they are so much cheaper!

  7. It is such a shame that you were disappointed with this product, but I do think they sound expensive for what they are. The packaging looks pretty though and I do like the fact that they are paraben free.

  8. I have tried these and I do like them a lot. I just have to be careful and not overuse them. So I do give them gaps of 1-2 days. But must have for those with clogged pores <3

  10. I have never tried radiance pads but good thing you did not purchase more pads than needed especially if there was not a notable difference.

  13. I have the Nip & Fab Pads and I quite like them, funnily enough I was intending to try these next but after your review I'll stick to Nip & Fab and Pixie Glow Tonic.

  14. Ah, disappointing. I had high hopes for these, I've heard nothing but glowing reviews previously! I'm a Clarins Exfoliating Brightening Toner and Pixi Glow Tonic girl myself. I'll skip these!

  15. Helpful review! I think you should try the YesTo Blueberries intensive skin repair serum (I think that's what it's called??), results weren't straight away but after a few months of using it I've noticed my skin is a little firmer, clearer and also has actually faded a few of my spot scars! I seriously think it works:)

  16. I've never used these but I have a strict skincare routine that I find works very well for me. I'm sorry the didn't work for you but at least the less expensive option is better and saves you money.

  25. I've not tried these but my skin loves glycolic acid. I always respect bloggers who are honest and don't just present to love everything.
