Just like my previous post on Richard Ward’s hair range, this set of Nip+Fab products from the Glycolic Fix range was introduced to me by Lauren from MediaHubb. Back in March (yes, a looong time ago), I went to a Nip+Fab event featuring an interview with Kylie Jenner, which you can read all about in this post: A Close Encounter with Kylie Jenner for Nip+Fab
Although all five products are different, they all serve one purpose, which is “to cover all your skin needs, from giving skin a deep clean to buffing away dead skin cells, revealing a brighter complexion.”
They also share a similar scent, which I believe is “bittersweet”; I think I’d describe it as grapefruit-like because it’s got a fresh citrusy note mixed with bitter herbs or something on that line. As for the texture and result, let’s find out more about them from product to product. The ones I got to test out are: Glycolic Fix Cleanser, Glycolic Fix Pads, Glycolic Scrub Fix, Glycolic Instant Fix Mask and Glycolic Fix Serum.
Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser* (£7.95/150ml)
This face cleanser is a gel that foams up upon contact with water. It’s really easy to use and it makes my face clean and removes makeup without stripping off the natural moisture. I was a little scared that the high content of glycolic acid might be a little too harsh for my skin, but it’s quite the opposite! I only use this in the evenings, but it’s making my face look more radiant than ever! 🙂
Nip+Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix* (£9.95/75ml)
Nip+Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask* (£12.95/50ml)
This Glycolic Fix Mask reminds me a of the ever so popular Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask (review), except that this one is almost 3 times cheaper and works just as well. This mask has a really smooth texture and it’s glossy when applied. As expected of a glycolic acid mask, it does sting a little when applied, but it’s really not that bad compared to some other masks I’ve tried. After using this, I can see a noticeable difference on my spots and my pores – they definitely look smaller.
Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Pads* (£12.95/60 pads)
Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Serum* (£14.95/30ml)
This Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Serum is possibly my favourite product from the range. It’s got a sticky texture, but it’s easy to apply and it absorbs easily. It feels amazing on and I can feel a difference right away when applied. It makes the texture of my skin feel ridiculous smooth right away and the feeling lasts until next morning. It’s an over-night serum so I use it every evening.
I think the best thing about these Nip+Fab products is that they’re affordable and they work like wonders! It’s rare to find a products that fills both criteria. Besides, you can often find them on deal in all the major drugstore! For instance, you can get them for half-price at Boots on right now (on the date this post is written!)
