Hello hello Everyone!
During the last Sephora Sale I picked up the Sephora Glow Peel pads to compare them to the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance pads that I swear by. They have similar formulations but most noticeably the Sephora version is half the price and while I’m not usually adverse to spending a little bit more for a quality skincare product, if there is a less expensive product that has the EXACT same ingredients and is half the price it’s a serious no brainer.
Long review short: Yes it’s a dupe, it’s an exact dupe and wow do not spend your money on the Facial Radiance Pads.
I used to SWEAR by the Facial Radiance Pads. They work so well, my skin stays mostly clear, any uneveness gets smoothed out, any breakouts seem to heal a bit faster. I lived by them for YEARS from high school until now. While I’m never saying I’m not ever going to buy them again, the Sephora version works just as well and is legitimately $22 CAD for a 60 day supply, plus every 6 months there’s the Sephora sale where you can get up to 20% off.
There are two difference between the pads: Scent and dampness.
I think the FAB pads have a more pleasant scent and the pads themselves are far more saturated. I’m not super bothered by the Sephora versions scent and I kinda like that the pads are a little bit less saturated because I feel like I’m wasting less toner after I’ve toned my face and neck.
