Find Out Which Radiance Peel Kayla Rates 5 stars!

Written By Kayla M @oohkayla


To know me is to know that the brand First Aid Beauty holds my heart. I’ve told this story before but the brand was a major part of my skincare routine to help get my skin back to “normal” a few years ago. As someone who has never had a facial or any type of peel done before, any product that promises to do the work of a spa while being in the comfort of my home is intriguing to me. I had tried First Aid Beauty’s Facial Radiance pads in the past and loved them so trying the Facial Radiance Intensive Peel would be the next reasonable step in my relationship with the brand.



The product comes with a small tear dropped shaped sponge and a container with 1.7oz with a price tag of $40. The container is pretty tiny and the sponge seems pointless but don’t judge this product by its packaging. The sponge almost doubles in size when wet and allows you spread the product so evenly it’s mind blowing. The best part is a little goes a very long way especially once you start using the sponge. I used such a small amount and my face was completely covered with the peel in no time.  As per the directions you should leave it on for 1-5 minutes, that time frame is perfect for a quick skin care pick me up. The burning feeling most peels provide was subtle at first and didn’t really start to BURN until after I rinsed the product off. The feeling was tolerable and through some sort of magic I only felt it on the exact 2 spots I really wanted to “peel.” The Facial Radiance Intensive Peel claims to provide softer, smoother and brighter skin after 1 use. This claim seems like a tall order but it REALLY DID WORK AFTER ONE USE! The spots right above my cheekbone area were much smoother and less dry and flaky after 1 use of the product. 

 Bonus: I had no inflammation or irritation afterwards and there is no down time what so ever.


I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a peel that works, doesn’t break the bank and won’t leave you looking all types of crazy for days afterwards.

Have you ever loved a product so much that you can’t stop telling people about it? That’s how I feel about this incredible product from First Aid Beauty’s HELLO FAB line. The Vital Greens Face Mist is the perfect pick me up throughout the day. I love to spray a few spritzes while I sip on my daily Pressed Juicery Greens 3.


Jam Packed with glorious green superfoods like Kale, Cucumber and Spinach to name a few, this green concoction combats against environmental aggressors while hydrating and soothing your skin.


This spray has been essential during the colder days in NYC when my face tends to tighten and dry up the most. Using this mid day has not only help refresh and hydrate when needed but it also helps improve the overall tone and texture of my skin. It simply just feels good. The scent is pleasant and fresh which caught me by surprise because I honestly thought that it would smell… well, kinda gross. 

What also caught me by surprise was how it actually set my makeup. My creamy tinted moisturizer, concealer and gloss highlighter combo did not budge or even transfer on to my phone. 


I would recommend this to anyone and everyone as this is suitable for all skin types including sensitive. Especially if you’re someone which severely parched skin in the upcoming cold, winter months (like myself) as well as someone who travels a lot via airplane, because we know the toll that can take on the skin. 

For $18 this little 2 oz spritzer is an affordable hidden gem that does wonders and goes the distance. Perfect Stocking Stuffer this season. This product can be purchased at Sephora online and in stores as well as
