If you’ve ever searched for beauty products made for sensitive skin, the selection is a bit sparse. But when you finally find a favorite brand that specializes in rescuing your skin with safe and soothing ingredients, it’s a keeper.
That’s probably why thousands of Sephora shoppers swear by the female-founded skincare company First Aid Beauty — it’s a line specifically made for sensitive skin that provides real solutions for skin concerns. As one of the most-searched products in February 2020 on Google and with more than 1,300 five-star reviews at Sephora, First Aid Beauty’s Facial Radiance Pads just might be your new favorite (and easiest to use) product to add to your skincare routine.
While typical exfoliators shouldn’t be used every day, these exfoliating pads are gentle enough to use daily as they contain just the right amount of lactic and glycolic acids to not only exfoliate but tone and brighten all skin types. And with lemon and Indian gooseberry natural extracts, you can expect a brighter appearance and a more even skin tone just after four weeks of use.
Not only do Sephora shoppers love these facial pads since they’re so easy to use with minimal fragrance, but one reviewer bought a full-size container after trying a sample.
“Originally only tried them because I got a free sample, and they came out truly noncomedogenic on my cosmetics analyzer. I have dry, sensitive, acne prone skin and was concerned these might be too much given the inclusion of AHAs and my use of azelaic acid and aczone, which effectively keeps most of my acne away. I use these once a day in the morning and have noticed fabulous results! Especially concerning the dry skin around my nose. I find that after use my serum and moisturizer sink in better as well. I only use in the a.m. given my skin’s sensitivity and the fact that I apply my acne treatments at night and have had no issues. Totally recommend!”
Plus, if you’re looking for an easy way to cleanse your skin while on the go, these pads are a TSA-approved alternative to packing larger bottles of skincare products. But if you do try these facial pads, remember to wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure for a week after trying since they do contain glycolic and lactic acids.
While these facial pads aren’t meant to replace your favorite exfoliator in your skincare routine, they’re a great supplement for the days in between your weekly exfoliation. Below you can shop the facial pads in a 28-pad or a 60-pad container.
