Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Range
Keeping My Spot Prone Skin Clear Daily!
I’ve been meaning to do a review of the Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix since just after Christmas. I picked up my first bits from this range in the January sales from Tesco and managed to nab some of the gift sets for only £5 a piece! This is actually my third repurchase of the Glycolic Fix Pads and second repurchase of the Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser. The reason I’ve had to buy them again and again is because they’re literally the only skin care products which:
1. I’ve used up and
2. Have kept my skin clear from spots without drying it out!
I’ve pretty much come to terms with the fact that my skin will always be spot prone, and it’s alright, I’m not too sad about it. The Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix products have managed to reduce the amount of spots on my chops drastically though! I use the Glycolic Fix Cleanser in the evening after I’ve done an initial wash with the Kiss Foaming Cleanser from Wilkos, then glide the Glycolic Fix pads over every other evening. I don’t tend to wash my face in the morning, because I’m plain lazy, but use a bit of Garnier Micellar Water on a cotton pad just to wipe any residues away. This skin routine alone has been a revolution for my FACE, and some have praised the Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix products as being an affordable rival for Alpha H. At the moment the entire range is on half price offer at Tesco, but it keeps going out of stock before I get a chance to pick up some more! The cleanser only cost me £3.97 and the pads were on the shelf for around £6, which is a bargain to feel confident about my face again!
The way Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix works is by using Glycolic acid in the products. Glycolic acid is basically a liquid exfoliator, which removes the outer layers of your skin gently by not ‘scrubbing’ it like exfoliators you see on the shelf usually do. It helps with wrinkles (although we will pretend I don’t have any anyway, shhh) and also keeps your pores clear by removing the crap out. Unlike a lot of products which contain glycolic acid, I’ve found these ones to be the most effective without drying my skin out or stripping it of oils. In the past I’ve been over zealous with glycolic acid products and found that it stripped the oils from my skin and it overcompensated for this loss by producing even more and making more spotty! So if you have sensitive or dry skin be a bit more careful. But as I have said, my skin has never been as clear as it has been since using these products. IT’S (almost) A MIRACLE.
So far I’ve not tried anything I’ve not liked from Nip & Fab, but I’m totally eyeing up the brand new Dragons Blood Fix to give a go next!
