Radical Skincare is an anti ageing skincare line started by Liz and Rachel, the daughter of Dr. Richard F. Edlich MD.PHD, world renowned Professor of Plastic Surgery. They dedicated years of research to formulating advanced skincare products that protect and rejuvenate skin.
The key to the Radical Skincare line is their Patented Trylacel Technology which maintains the potency of active ingredients by up to 300% by combining Multiple Antioxidants, Anti Ageing Active Ingredients and soothing Ingredients which enable maximum benefits and quick results.
I tried some samples from their range a couple of years ago & was very impressed with them so was excited to give their new Hand and Nail Cream a try.
This cream has so many high-performance active ingredients, much like all Radical products, so I will list some of the wonderful ingredients
‘Hyaluronic Acid: Recreates the hydrolipid film of the skin, which boosts its barrier function protecting optimum hydration levels on the palm and back of hand.
The nutritional and antioxidant powers of the Radical TrylacelTM technology re-stimulate the synthesis of essential collagen and elastin fibres to improve skin firmness and elasticity and protect against free-radicals.
Hexylresorcinol visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots. Combined with raspberry extract, rich in ellagic acid, this ingredient is known to regulate melanin synthesis and therefore help to prevent dark spots forming.
Myrrh extract supports the strength of the nails and condition cuticles, it was used by typists in the days of the first Remington typewriters to strengthen their nails. Natural Myrrh also calms micro wounds and irritations.
Rice extract absorbs excess secretions by the hands.’
So this cream is a powerhouse of anti ageing as well as giving your hands an all in one treatment. The cream is quite thick when you first apply it to your hands but its so easy to massage into the skin. It sinks into the skin within minutes leaving them feeling very soft, noticeably smoother and brighter and not at all greasy. You don’t have to wait ages for it to sink in and I found I didn’t have to reapply too much throughout the day, my hands stayed feeling nourished and soft for hours. I only tended to reapply after I washed my hands so you don’t have to use a lot of product throughout the day which is great!
I don’t think you can ever take a good hand cream for granted, our hands are really put through the ringer on a daily basis and as I am edging ever closer to 40 (3 years to go) I am really trying to look after my hands and keep the age spots and inevitable wrinkles to a minimum. I have really noticed a difference in how soft and healthy my hands look, I have been using this cream for over 2 months now & it has even helped reduce an age spot I had on the back of my right hand so that’s really pleased me.
The more I use this the more it’s protecting my hands and giving them the nourishment and hydration they need. I suffer from really dry skin on my hands all year round but this hand cream has been the best to date for combating my lizard skin.
This is a high-end skin care product but in this case, you get what you pay for, you don’t need to use a lot of product so there is no wastage. If you’re 35+ then I would highly recommend investing in this. I always have it with me, either on my desk or in my handbag and the results are visible so I’m completely smitten.
Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.
