First Aid Beauty Review


First aid beauty is a brand I heard a lot about and as usual couldn’t wait to try. I purchased two of their most popular items: the Facial Radiance Pads and the Vitamin Hydrating Mist a few months back and I can now bring my full review.

Facial Radiance Pads 

Since I started using acid toners, I have been on the hunt for the best drugstore ones. The Facial Radiance Pads from First Aid Beauty is one I have heard off and comes with a reasonable price tag.  The pads promise to exfoliate, tone and brighten the skin. It comes in two sizes a 60 pack and 28 pack.


The pads are slightly bigger than the NIP FAB pads I tried some time ago however these are not effective for me. I’m not sure of the acid content as it doesn’t say on the product or online. From the ingredient list, it does have lactic and glycolic acid in it but I haven’t noticed a difference in my skin, which leads me to think the acid content is very low and maybe lower than the Nip Fab pads which were only 2%. It made no difference to my pores either and although it hasn’t broken me out, it hasn’t prevented breakouts either I still get my random one here and there. I do like that they have stayed wet and haven’t dried out but overall very disappointed with its effectiveness.


Vitamin Hydrating Mist

The Hydrating Mist says it will hydrate, revive and refresh your skin and safe for sensitive skin.


I like to use to over my makeup to take away the powdery look. It’s great at that, it doesn’t necessarily leave a dewy finish but the finish is quite nice. It comes out in a very fine mist so doesn’t leave white spots on your face or disturb your makeup. It has a lovely subtle scent.  The slim line bottle makes it perfect for traveling and its only 59ml (quite small)

My only con- it would be nice to know which vitamins it has as it doesn’t actually say this on the product and I wish i was slightly bigger


It’s bittersweet for me: First Aid Beauty has been on my brand hit list for a while and whilst I’m happy to finally try some items I’m quite disappointed with the effectiveness. Overall I love the mist but not a fan of the Facial Radiance Pads. I guess its but to the drawing board for searching for the drugstore best aid toner!

Facial Radiance Pads (28 pack) is priced at £12 and the Vitamin Hydrating Mist is £10. Both available from FeelUnique



It’s ok not to be ok

With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)
