NIP+FAB Products Review

hello beauties!

so, today I’m going to review two of my recent favorite Nip+Fab products.

  1. Nip+Fab Glycolic Cleansing Fix
  2. Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads.

but, before going for the full reviews, lets know a little about “Glycolic Acid” first, because, thats one of the main ingredients in both of the products.

what is Glycolic Acid?

well, Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) derivative, which is naturally collected from sugarcane. though, in modern days, its mostly made artificially.

use: Glycolic Acid is used in anti-aging products to help safely remove the thin outer layer of skin to reveal younger, brighter looking skin. Glycolic Acid helps brighten the skin, lighten spots and regular use of it can even out any discoloration of the skin. so, that was a short introduction of Glycolic Acid.

so, I’m starting with the Glycolic Cleansing Fix first.

Review: Nip+Fab Glycolic Cleansing Fix

it is a cleanser with the goodness of glycolic acid and olive oil. there are other active ingredients too. but, these two caught my eye to be honest. it also has Camellia Sinensis, (green tea) , which is great at shrinking large pores and soothe the skin. 20160302_161104.edit

so, my experience with the cleanser was pretty awesome! I just take one or two drop of this face wash and massage it on my already damp face in a circular motion. below, you can see how the cleanser looks like actually. it has no color, has a chemical smell which is not much bothering for me. actually, when I use the face wash regularly, I don’t even get the smell. lol! so, the fragrance is that subtle.

after massaging for 20-30 seconds, I go with washing my face with a lot of water, I pat the towel on my face and dry it well. remember to never rub you face with a towel. it might loosen the skin elasticity and make your skin older earlier (who wants that..huh!)

so, the after effect of washing my face with Nip+Fab Glycolic Cleansing Fix, my face really looks bright and refreshed and my pores look very much tightened of course! this face was really cleanses deeply, you’ll feel it right way after using.the face wash gives a glow to the skin. and I’m like, wow! where was the face wash all these years!

so, overall, its a great facewash. I use it in my makeup removing ritual too. I shall talk about my makeup removal ritual in some other blog post soon.

so, lets take a quick look at the pros and cons of the facewash.

cons: as the cleanser tightens pores and gives the whole face a slightly tightening feeling, people with dry skin might feel the skin too dried up ! so, the cleanser it best for normal/ combo to oily skin beauties.

pros:

  • the bottle comes with a nice dispenser, so you can easily control how much product you want in your palm.
  • color free, paraben free
  • contains 2% glycolic acid for resurfacing the outer layer of skin
  • contains amino acids mixed with olive oil provides ample hydration
  • makes skin look instantly radiant.now comes, the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads. there are 60 pads in a cute looking tub. these pads are thin and both sides are soaked in skin loving ingredients like, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid,  blue daisy and witch hazel. all of them are very good in toning, brightening and hydrating skin.

how do I use  Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads? 

well, after washing my face with Nip+Fab Glycolic Cleansing Fix, I take out one of the facial pads and rub it gently at the face in circular motion. I rub both of the sides. and if there is any residue of makeup, grime  it easily cleanses off. one pad is enough for the skin and neck area and décolleté.

note: make sure that you leave the eye area as the products contain glycolic acid, it might be too harsh for the delicate eye skin. also, these pads can be used only two times per day.

to conclude, I would say, after using the cleanser and the facial pads back to back, my skin really looks brighter, more toned , soft and much soothed. :). also, I dont need to use a moisturizer whenever I use the facial pad. what else can I ask from a product ?

price: these are very affordable, always available at superdrugs, and as we know, superdrugs often provide sale. so, it would be a great idea to grab these when the sale goes on! yay!

if you have used the cleanser or the facial pads, please share your experience.

bubye for now!! 🙂
