For me, the summer of 2018 mars the point of me probably wearing the least makeup ever. It’s not that I used to walk around with a face full of the stuff, but this year, formulas have become lighter, and more natural looking than ever before. Now, I can still see my freckles, even once my foundation is on.
The downside of lightening up on makeup, is perhaps, that good skin has never felt so important. I’m constantly trying products to up my hydration levels without feeling overwhelmed by rich formulas, and I want my skin to look as bright and as glowy as possible. One secret weapon I’ve found? Rodial’s Vit C Brightening range. I’ve fallen in love with it over the past few weeks, and have been using the products daily. The first of the line-up I reached for were the Vit C Brightening Cleansing Pads. Packaged in an uber-chic orange jar, the pads are a daily skincare-supplement which are not only super convenient, but take away any hassle of exfoliation.
Using the pads couldn’t be easier – in the evening, after cleansing, I take a single pad, and swipe all over my fae. The result is skin which feels soft, smooth and clear. Each pad has been soaked with your perfect daily dose of brightening fruit acids which retexturise and renew the complexion. They smell fresh and vaguely fruity, and they don’t dry or stress skin out. you might feel a slight tingle in you wipe over a congested area – but it’s just the acids getting to work! You don’t even need to rinse the formula off – I just let my face dry down, then apply my evening serums and oil as normal.
The formula, like all of Rodial’s Vit C range, contains Vitamin C to boost radiance and fade dark spots, whilst Salicylic acid tightens pores and tones skin. It’s a godsend for people like me, whose skin can sometimes find physical exfoliation a little harsh, and the daily nature of the pads, means that skin stays smooth and glowing all month long!
