15 Apr Review: Nip+Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix
Price: R245, Available from Clicks Stores
I am an exfoliator junkie. Now that that is out the way, I can tell you all about this gem!
I have been using the Glycolic range from Nip+Fab for a little while now, and have been really enjoying the benefits. Admittedly, in the beginning, my skin reacted with a horrible break-out, but I have found my skin tends to do so whenever I include glycolic to my skincare routine. I have already told you all about the glycolic wipes – which you HAVE to stock up on, but this comes just as highly recommended.
Everyone says that you should exfoliate at least 1-2 times a week which are days that I tend to look forward to the most. I find that by using this particular exfoliator, my skin feels smoother and healthier, it has an energising effect that I can’t quite get over. The scent has a slight hint of citrus which is very refreshing and gentle – it’s not the ‘in-your-face’ kinda smell. The granuals are especially fine and I don’t find it nearly as rough as some of the other exfoliators on the market, but still it’s effective in removing dead skincells, making way for younger looking skin.
I love how clean and smooth my face feels after a good pamper-sesh, which always includes this baby.
I feel like a stuck record when it comes to Nip+Fab, constantly singing them praises. So have lately been sharing some of my beauty favourites with family members, whenever they visit. Yesterday, I had my sister-in-law, Ash, visit and treated her to a Nip+Fab facial, followed by a brow wax. I tried not telling her much about the brand and asked her feedback the following day, on what she thought of the exfoliator:
“My skin is really sensitive so I worry about which products I use. Usually, when I use an exfoliator it stings a little, especially if I use a toner right afterwards. This wasn’t the case at all, with Nip+Fab. It was good enough to get the job done, but didn’t peel my face off. Today, [day after] my skin feels amazing, my breakout even seems to have improved. I just love the overall feeling and look of my skin ” -Ashleigh B
Did you know that Kylie Jenner is the brand’s ambassador? She also swears by the glycolic range and says it’s her personal secret to glowing skin.
