I am super excited to give my thoughts on the Nip + Fab glycolic fix night pads extreme! They were recommended to me by a work colleague a while ago, and last month I finally bought them.
Containing exfoliants glycolic acid, salicylic acid and lactic acid, these pads are ideal for de-clogging congested pores. The glycolic acid is a super skin care ingredient that works to treat scarring, skin discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic acid is a great acne treatment ingredient that works a little deeper to remove layers of dead skin, promoting a brighter complexion. Lactic acid is a gentler AHA which stimulates cell turn over and helps to reduce pigmentation.
Now, they are STRONG. I have been using these around 3 times per week and I wouldn’t recommend using them any more than that. If you are new to using acid’s in skin care I would definitely say stick to the 1-2 times per week as recommended on the packaging. Easy to use, you literally wipe all over your face after cleansing and you’re done! Once dry, I follow up with moisturiser but skip the toner. I use the pads on a night time, but I know some people who use these on a morning so I don’t think it matters too much.
When I first started using the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme I did have break outs for about 2 weeks. Even though I had some spots I decided to perceiver to see if they were due to my skin not working with the product, or whether they were just doing their job and clearing out the crap in my skin that my other products just weren’t reaching and I’m glad to say it seems to have been the latter! After around 2 weeks my skin cleared up and has been pretty consistant ever since, it looks much brighter and clearer overall and I am thrilled with the results since the initial break out’s!
I have found that on the occasions when I used the pads more than 3 times a week I came out in a few little reaction type pimples, so make sure your keep track of the days you use these. But with proper use I have seen great results and will definitely be purchasing again!
You can buy the Nip + Fab glycolic fix night extreme for £14.95 from Boots, however at the time of writing this post they are on offer for £7.47!
