Stages of Beauty Radiance Treatment Cream

When you open a box and it's filled with lovely tins and two lovely paper butterflies, you get the feeling you've been sent something special. While I'd like to admit that this review is unbiased by the butterflies, I have to give Stages of Beauty full points for presentation. What following is a review of their Radiance Treatment Cream for Complete Anti-Aging Care, designed for women in their 20s.

  • Non-greasy
  • Light, pleasant scent
  • A little goes a long way
  • Lovely packaging
  • Avoids harsh chemicals
  • Formulated for sensitive skin
  • Easily absorbed
  • Luxury price
Stages of Beauty's Radiance Treatment Cream is designed to help prevent the signs of aging, repairing and protecting skin against the elements. I love how it is fragrance-free and not tested on animals. The performance was good as well, but I suspect many of the anti-aging benefits become more evident with long-term use.

While it definitely feels like a top-of-the-line product, the price point may put some off of this line. Also, I found it frustrating that I couldn't find the ingredients list anywhere — not on their website or elsewhere. This particular product contains gluconolactone, which fortunately has been confirmed as corn-derived (vegan version). Also, the tocopherol has been confirmed as gluten-free. If you're looking to treat yourself or a beauty-loving friend, this is definitely a nice moisturizer.
