For the past five weeks, I have been using BRAD Sublime Youth Creator Radiance Concentrate ($125), and I’m delighted with the results. The concentrate is made through a bio-fermentation process that results in concentrated ingredients that can be more easily and deeply absorbed into the skin. Even the packaging is cutting edge; the bottles are made of biophotonic violet glass which filters out damaging rays while allowing beneficial violet light to penetrate, acting to protect and preserve the contents.
I pour a bit of the concentrate in my palm, rub it between my hands and pat it on my face. Since it is a concentrate you only need a small, dime-size amount. The concentrate is a clear, pleasant, non-sticky liquid. It doesn’t have that oily feel you can get with other peptide products. It’s lightweight, cool and refreshing and it dries quickly. Often, it’s the only product on my face, and I don’t miss a moisturizer despite my very dry skin!
There are many ingredients in Sublime Youth Creator Radiance Concentrate, but there are six in particular that were singled out by BRAD. Encapsulated Retinol Complex promotes cell growth and improves skin’s texture. Ginko biloba is an antioxidant that stimulates circulation. Tripeptide-5 is a highly bioactive deep skin penetrating peptide that is able to activate tissue growth and stimulate collagen, promoting elasticity and reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Raspberry seed oil provides hydration. Violet extract guards against UV radiation damage. All high quality, natural ingredients, all designed to protect and revitalize. There’s always something new and compelling in skincare, but BRAD products have a state of the art technology. None of which matters unless it works, of course. And in my experience, it works!
After several weeks of using it, I am really happy with what I see. My skin tone is even, my face looks smooth and feels super soft and it just makes me feel great knowing that my skin looks so healthy and young. BRAD Sublime Radiance Concentrate is a costly product, but the benefits are there. At 3.4 fl ounces, it’s a very generous size. Though the concentrate can be applied morning and evening, I have been using it only once a day in the morning. Perhaps the results would be even more dramatic with two applications a day, but one works well enough for me. After using it for more than a month, there is quite a bit left — perhaps enough for a few months, so it’s pretty cost effective.
Based on my experience with the Radiance Concentrate, I would definitely be willing to splurge on some of the other BRAD products. I would never have anticipated that at age 63 I would be comfortable and confident heading out in the world with little or no foundation and just a bit of blush, something I used to take for granted in my younger years. Sometimes going backward can be a good thing!
