Now, I’m a sucker when it comes to skincare products as I’m always wanting to try new products, hoping they’ll be miracle workers. I recently discovered Nip + Fab as a skincare brand, they have a huge range of skincare products which address different skin concerns and I thought I would write about three of my favourite Nip + Fab products.
Nip + Fab – Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Shot
First off, let’s talk about the packaging of this one as it’s probably my favorite. I love the glass coral bottle paired with the silver lid as this gives the product a more luxurious feel. It consists of a dropper which is super easy for application, especially in terms of getting the right amount of product. It claims to be an intense moisture concentrate which works deeply to hydrate thirsty and dry skin for a plumper finish. The term “Dragon’s Blood” is actually sap found in Croton Lechleri Tree in the Amazon which works to protect and heal the skin. It also includes Hyaluronic Acid which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Now, that was educational. I’ve never tried a serum like this before as it’s more on the watery, gel like consistency side. You’re advised to use this two ways by either; mixing one or two drops in with your normal day/night moisturiser or to simply apply it to your skin on its own as an overnight concentrate. I defiantly prefer using this one on its own overnight, as when I’ve mixed it, I’ve never noticed any difference with my normal moisturiser. I tend to alternate each evening between using this solely on its own or using just a moisturizer, and as you can see, since I’m half way through, I’ve been loving it. The serum itself does have a strong medicinal smell to it which, if you’re not into strong scents this may not be for you but I don’t mind the smell at all and I’ve found after about a minute or two on my skin the smell tends to linger off. I have really felt that this serum has given my skin a beneficial boost and I will continue to love using it.
Nip + Fab – Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads
The glycolic fix daily cleansing pads are one of Nip + Fab’s more popular products, with raves from celebs such as Kylie Jenner, and I can see why. The pads are soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid which is supposed to retexture and resurface the skin, witch hazel which helps to tone, hyaluronic acid, which helps to moisturize and refreshed as well as blue daisy which helps to soothe and calm. Cleansing pads had never really been part of my skincare routine until now, I’ve tried a few other brands in the past and I’ve never had much success with them due to them containing too my acids and alcohol, which tends to sting and be too harsh for my skin. But, I’ve found these pads to be great multitaskers and best of all, gentle on my skin. They’re also great for when you want to be a bit lazy, or the morning after a night out! As you can see, I’m down to my last pad, which is pretty saddening for me as I’m now needing to purchase more as I really do love these!
Nip + Fab – No Needle Fix Serum
At first, I didn’t entirely know what to expect from this, but it’s slowly becoming a real love of mine. The bottle claims it is a revolutionary plumping + volumizing serum for younger looking skin. The bottle states that; cell active forms help plump fine lines, while oat extract acts as an instant tensor, blurring imperfections + soothing the look of wrinkles. I’ve been loving applying this before doing my makeup and I can honestly say, as soon as you apply it, it tenses your skin and reduces the look of fine lines. It also makes my skin feel plumper whilst being hydrated, without being greasy! Which is a problem I’ve found with so many other moisturisers. The packaging is also really convenient as it’s great for travelling due to it being plastic. The pump also means you get the right amount of product and you’re not getting too much and wasting any, yay. I haven’t been using this for long enough to comment on any long term results and I’m not entirely sure how promising they would be, but in terms of a quick fix, I’ve been loving using this before applying makeup, I’ve actually been skipping using primer and just using this instead.
You can shop Nip + Fab’s full range of products here, and Superdrug currently have all three of these products on offer with a ‘save up to 1/2 price on selected Nip + Fab products’ which makes them totally worth it!
I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of these or have any Nip + Fab favourites yourself that you can recommend.
