Radialabs

radialabs

Radialabs is an instant wrinkle reducing serum, advertised as “one of the premier names in skincare products.”

Formulated to have a powerful lifting and moisturizing effect, Radialabs supposedly increases moisture in skin by 440% in just 2 days.

However, when I went to take a closer look to find out Radialabs’ true potential, I was surprised at the lack of information I encountered. With a little information, I found some critical information.

Radialabs: A Bad Reputation?

Radialabs has no official website, making it difficult to discern what information is valid. Based on my research, Radialabs is headquartered in Florida and operates entirely online.

The company offers a small line of skincare products, with the titular Radialabs wrinkle serum as the premier front-runner.

Unfortunately, the company seems to have a bad reputation when it comes to shipping and billing. Over 200 complaints were listed on the Better Business Bureau. Most consumers ordered a free trial but were automatically billed the full amount and never refunded.

Is Radialabs Still Available For Purchase?

Radialabs no longer seems to be sold by the manufactures.

It is still available on third party websites, namely Amazon.com and eBay.com. The prices vary, from $8 to over $100 for a 3-month supply. A single bottle costs approximately $50.

Other products, including an eye cream and skin toner are also available.

Inside the Serum

I was able to find a partial list of ingredients, which help determine Radialabs’ effectiveness.

Polymoist-PS Complex

Polymoist-PS Complex is a peptide blend that allows skin cells to absorb water, improving firmness and elasticity. The exact blend seems to be have been kept secret, a common practice from companies wanting to keep formulas away from competitors.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties. Harmful free radicals damage skin and accelerate aging; vitamin E both prevents and repairs damage from free radicals. The appearance of wrinkles and texture of skin is also improved.[1]

Mushroom Extract

Not much is known yet about mushroom’s effectiveness, but it is thought to be an anti-inflammatory. It reduces redness, and treats skin conditions such as eczema. Also an emollient, mushroom softens and smoothes skin.[2]

Shea Oil

Made from shea butter, shea oil is a popular moisturizer. It contains essential vitamins, minerals, and lipids that fight signs of aging. One study showed it significantly improved skin health.[3]

Mango Butter

Mango butter has been proved in studies to rebuild and protect skin. Also, dry skin was consistently moisturized.[4]

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil treats try and flaky skin and prevents further damage. Participants in one study applied topical coconut oil to skin and saw an increase in skin hydration and lipid levels. Both affect youthful appearance of skin.[5]

Saccharide Isomerate

This water binding ingredient moisturizes skin with carbohydrates. It is long lasting, providing continual moisture to skin.

Rosa Canina Oil

Also known as rose hip, rosa canina oil is full of fatty acids that plump and firm skin. It is most often used to treat scars, but also reduces wrinkles and calms skin.[6]

Customers Weigh In On Radialabs

Amazon.com users shared their experience with Radialabs.

Robyn Pharr wrote, “Rarely do I find a skin product that actually does what it says it will do. Radialabs instant wrinkle reducer does. It doesn’t claim to be magic – it claims to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and it does just that. I have fine lines around my eyes and above my lips and a small one across my forehead that I use this cream on daily and they all but disappear. Like I said: love it!”

User DArmstrong said, “I have enjoyed the product very much…I have received compliments every day about how much younger I am looking…I feel better about myself these days and I owe it all to Radialabs Instant Wrinkle Reducer.”

Some users had complaints.

User Mama Knows said, “I really love the Radialabs Instant Wrinkle Reducer product and have ordered it several times. The product works, however the packaging doesn’t. Specifically, the nozzle on the bottle is problematic. Each bottle I’ve ordered has had the same problem with the nozzle. The nozzle becomes unusable long before the bottle is empty. I’m still a fan but I wish they would fix this. It’s annoying.”

Alex White said, “It’s more like glue than anything else I can think of it left a white stain on my face which did wash off. Do not buy.”

“The product was old or something. Instead of being like a cream it was all lumpy and will not go over face very well, it breaks up and falls off the face,” Billie Walker added.

Should You Try It?

Radialabs has great ingredients that are popular in skin creams and proven to deliver results. But the company’s bad reputation and numerous billing complaints should make any consumer wary. Now sold from third party websites, it should be safer to purchase if this is a product you’re interested in.
