Rodial Super Acids Range

It's a little scary to use skincare product that has the words "SUPER ACIDS" on the packaging but there's nothing harmful in these so we can breathe a sigh of relief! First of all, it's hard to ignore the lovely bright green and silver packaging which screams "use me, use me!" every time I look in my box of beauty products (yes, it is now a box as I have no more room in my drawer for them all). In general, I think Rodial packaging is pretty awesome but how does the products match up? I've been using these for a month now on and here is how I got on!

I like the name of this! It makes it sound like it's going to work miracles on your skin after a heavy night of partying! It is a fairly straight forward face scrub, and not abrasive at all. You apply a small amount to your skin and gently massage for about one minute. The 3-in-1 micro polish is formulated to refine, brighten and renew the appearance of skin with immediate results. The micro-beads buffs away dead skin cells and unclogs pores. After the first use, my skin looked more radiant, it gave me a rather healthy dewy glow! This contains glycolic and salicylic acid, vitamin E, shea butter and probiotic technology to strengthen and protect. I use this once or twice a week along with the face mask.

Always apply a face mask right after using a scrub or exfoliator, this reduces the risk of a breakout. Exfoliators unclogs pores and therefore opens them so if you don't treat the new surface of skin, you may see a few spots and pimples rear it's head. This one is obviously made to be used together with the After-Party Scrub but it doesn't always have to be matching products. The X-treme Hangover Mask is a resurfacing clay mask that deeply cleanses, and restores your skin to a youthful, healthy-looking complexion. There are lots of fancy ingredients in this like pronalen fruit acids, laracare, argireline and hexapeptide which decongest, tones, revitalises and improve the look of skin. 

You apply a thin layer of this and then rub the residue off with your fingers but I found it quite difficult to do because they clay was resisting to come off. It was like it's stuck there. It ended up chafing the skin on my face (not good if you have sensitive skin) so I found that wiping this away with a muslin cloth was much quicker and easier. 

Not to be mistaken for make-up remover face wipes (those really messes up the balance of my skin), the Rodial cleansing pads are made to remove grime, oil and dirt whilst reducing the appearance of large pores. Unlike the cheap face wipes you get in Boots or Superdrug, these pads are hydrating, refreshing and actually cleanses (and so it should, for £38 a tub). It does say on the website that you can remove make up with these pads but I wouldn't recommend it purely because the pads aren't big enough and you might end up using 6-8 pads just to remove it all. There are only 50 pads in there, and they are quite thin and delicate so I think think it's better to use cleansing wipes on clean skin. I've been using these on the days I've gone make-up free and don't require a heavy skincare routine. Very gentle on skin and smells really nice!

In the UK, Rodial Skincare is available from their website, Marks and Spencer, ASOS, Selfridges, Space NK, House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. To find a stockist in your country, visit their website for more information.
