THE BUDGET GLOW TONIC PADS

September 13, 2016

My skin hasn't been too good as of late. Let's just start the post off with a little TMI shall we? But seriously it's not been good, ever since I moved to France about 2 weeks ago my skin texture has been all over the place. I can't put my finger on what it is, maybe stress or a different climate - even though I am sure the French and English climate are pretty similar, but I digress. For some unknown reason my skin has been bumpy, dry and patchy to the point where the usual moisturising products I use to combat my dry skin just haven't been doing the job. Enter Nip&Fab Glycolic Fix Pads Extreme. These are exfoliating pads that are soaked in Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid. Together these ingredients are supposed to decongest pores and brighten up the complexion.


Inside the plastic container you get 60 pads for £14.95 but I got mine for half price in Superdrug which makes it that bit more budget friendly. The idea is similar to the new Pixi Glow Tonic To Go, small pads drenched in a formula that you can easily wipe all over your face. If you are a fan of the Pixi Glow Tonic I'm sure you would enjoy this product as the results I've seen are similar for the two products. As someone who used Glow Tonic first I expected the scent of the Nip&Fab product to be somewhat similar - that very strong chemically smell. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that these pads have a nice citrusy smell that won't make your nose screw up everytime you use it.

Since adding it into my daily night time skincare routine I have noticed a great difference in my skin. I have noticed my skin become much more smooth and the annoying dry patches seem to disappear after a few uses. My skin is not only brighter but has a definite glow in the morning after I have used one the night before. Despite the name I wouldn't say that these were exactly 'extreme' they are pretty similar to the results I saw after using Glow Tonic. I have also heard that the original Glycolic Fix Pads from Nip&Fab are not as good as they contain more alcohol and dry the skin out, so the extreme versions are definitely the way to go. If you have sensitive skin you could start out by using these pads a couple of times a week before incorporating them into daily routine.
