TIA Review by Marta:
This is an update of my original review because since then I have come to love this peptide serum more and more. I would rate BRAD Multi-peptide amongst the best products I have found. After a short break, I found myself missing its effects on my skin. It has now become my go-to night serum. Upon waking, my skin looks refreshed and feels so soft. It can get addictive.
This is a light serum with a strong smell of witch hazel, a very good antioxidant that is one of the dominant ingredients after a base of organic herbal infusions. There's also hyaluronic acid, but Essential Elixir is really about amino acids. There are more than a dozen at my count. And what is a peptide, but a chain of amino acids.
Amino acids are the proverbial building blocks of the body, accounting for the smallest molecular components of proteins. Because proteins are involved in every major process in the body, amino acids are essential to health. Of the 20 amino acids found within proteins, ten are manufactured by the body (alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine). The rest must be obtained from the diet and are thus called essential amino acids (arginine, histidine, isoleucine, lueine, lysine, methionine, phenylanine, theonine, tryptophan, and valine). Just to take one example from the essentials, arginine: it plays a pivotal role in cell division and the healing of wounds.
BRAD's Essential Elixir promises to "restructure, purify, nourish, and re-energize". After a slowish start (not much to report in the first couple of weeks), it began to suggest it might live up to that. But when it really kicked in (after four weeks), the results were tremendous. My skin looked like it had been on vacation - and it continues to be re-engergized. It is smoother and clearer and just healthy looking. It is even doing a good job on my neck. This is an excellent product, with nothing to dislike but a touch of phenoxyethanol.
