Radical Skincare Instant Revitalizing Mask -Review

PR Sample

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.

You guys know that I am so appreciative of everything that I have the opportunity to try out and review for you all. So when I was given the opportunity to try this out, I jumped on it because who doesn't love face masks? 

To get the pump to pop up you have to twist the top silver piece.It's like the Lancome DreamTone with the way you have to twist it, best way I can describe it. 
Ingredients:Aqua (Water), Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate, Perfluoroisohexane, Cocamido Propyl Betaine, Glycerin, Acrylates / Palmeth-25 Acrylate Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Polyhydrostearic Acid, Carrageenan, Ethylhexyl Isononanoate, Isononyl Isononanoate, Tropaeolum Majus Flower / Leaf / Stem Extract, Phospholipids, Panthenol, Sodium PCA, Retinyl Palmitate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Niacinamide, Lecithin, Beta-Carotene, Allantoin, Camellia, Sinensis Leaf Extract, Coffea Robusta Seed Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Santella Asiatica Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Sorbitol, Mica, Sodium Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride, CI77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Ethylhexylglycerin, Propylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Salicylic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Limonene, Linalool, Citral, Geraniol.

Now, my before,after & during pictures aren't that great this was my 'getting used to using my camera' phase so they're not exactly clear. Now that I KNOW how to use it, the pictures are a million times better.
Think of pop rocks popping on your tongue, that's what this kind of feels like but it's on your face. This is really the best way that I can describe this without freaking you out. It does tickle and it's very weird feeling BUT it's definitely tolerable. Have you tried the Perlier Sparkling Cracking Body Water? That's exactly what this feels like. The scent is also very similar as well. It's a citrus-y lemon scent, and I bloody like it! I'm a sucker for anything fruit scented!
The really cool thing is that you can actually watch this mask work on your face! It's really neat because you can see the oxygen bubbles popping (and sometimes you can hear them). Not only that but as it's working the mask starts to become translucent, at least that's what I've experienced. It freaked me out the first time that I used this because I didn't know what was happening. Don't let that fool you though! You still need to wash it off of your face!
My skin felt clean, fresh, oxygenated (does that even make sense?) and all around a hundred times better than before I used it! Not only just that though, my skin felt more hydrated, which even us oily skinned girls need some extra moisture once in a while! I've not had any adverse effects from this either, no breaking out, irritation anything so this mask gets an A+ in my book! After using this mask for a few weeks (twice a week) my skin has felt softer AND it's got a nice glow to it!

This mask is on the higher end side of the price spectrum but it's definitely worth it! It's one of those splurge items that is definitely needed! It retails for $65 for 1oz/30ml of product. You don't need a lot, so this will definitely last you a while!

You can purchase the Instant Revitalizing Mask on, Sephora and for you ladies in the UK it's available at Space NK for £40.00. 

Radical Skincares' Neck Firming Gel and Exfoliating pads look really interesting as well. Those might be
my end of the year after I've save money purchases! (yes I'm thinking that far ahead!)

What do you think?! Would this be a face mask you would try?!

This product was sent to me for free for review. All opinions are my own. I gained no compensation from Radical Skincare other than being able to keep the product.
