As y’all know I have been on a seemingly endless quest for my new skincare routine — these two beauties are something I’ve been trying the past week that I wanted to share with you! I’ve been using Radha Beauty Retinol Moisturizer and the Radha Beauty Intensive Youth Eye Gel. You’ll have to forgive me — I meant to take before & after pictures, but my lighting situation and camera quality currently is poor. The verdict, in short, is that these products are a great purchase! They are extremely affordable and effective.
The moisturizer is available for only $25 — and it came in a surprisingly tall bottle! I have oily/combination skin that tends to get dry patches in the winter. When I first started trying this moisturizer, I was slathering on multiple pumps, and it was a little much.. My skin became a little to oily. But once I cut back the amount I use, it was perfect! Aging isn’t my number one concern with my skin (acne is), but I figure starting early is a great way to take care of your skin. This moisturizer isn’t scented, which is nice if you are sensitive to these things, and absorbs quickly. My powder foundation goes on smoothly over it! I would definitely recommend trying it out — but don’t forget, retinol can cause sun sensitivity!
Second, I have been using their eye gel. Let me just say this: I am a medical student. My dark circles are out of CONTROL! I tend to get bags under my eyes, and they are always super dark. It’s a constant battle for me. Plus, if I eat too much sodium, they can get super puffy. This eye gel is one of the most effective ones I tried — it reduced the darkness under my eyes tremendously! More impressively though, it was excellent at smoothing everything out. No matter how bad they looked when I woke up! It is very lightly scented like cucumber, which I enjoyed. It’s also very cooling and soothing. Unlike other eye creams, it does NOT leave your eye area greasy — that really drives me crazy with others I’ve tried! And my concealer and foundation go on beautifully. For only $17, this really is a steal! Definitely recommended.
