I first became familiar with the Nip+Fab brand a few years ago when I developed a bit of a thing for their Clean Fix+ cleansing oil which was like a thick oil/gel that was awesome for removing make-up. For some reason that doesn’t seem to exist any more, but I’ve kept an eye on the brand which contains a comprehensive selection of skin and body care as well as a few make-up bits and bobs.
I’ve read particularly good things about the Glycolic Fix range, and I think if you can ignore the somewhat outrageous claims of some of the products then you could find some real gems at reasonable prices. Recently the brand announced their first celebrity ambassador who is none other than the extremely pretty Millie Mackintosh. To mark the occasion I was sent a few of the brand’s hero products, so for those of you who are unfamiliar with Nip+Fab, here’s a look at some of their most popular pieces:
First up are the cleansers, starting with the Deep Cleansing Fix which is a massive 300ml of cream for £7.95. This is seriously huge and I actually thought it was something like a body cream of scrub when it first arrived as it really is like a little bucket of product! I like the idea of it containing so much as you’ll be more inclined to use a decent scoop when removing make-up, which this is apparently very good at as it deep cleanses and purifies whilst removing make-up. I don’t think there’s another product quite like this around which appears to be mostly aimed at spot-prone skin, so I’ll be trying this soon! The other cleanser is the Glycolic Fix Cleanser which, as the name suggests, is a glycolic based cleanser. Glycolic acid is one of my all-time favourite ingredient, so I’m always happy to see it included in skincare, although it’s worth noting that the percentage of this is 2% which wont do much, but it’s intended to be a very mild chemical exfoliator which is exactly what it is at £7.95.
The Yoga Blend body range is designed to de-stress and calm, with all three products containing soothing goodies such as lavender, rose and coconut, all of which should settle you down for the evening and are especially suited to post-work showers and baths. The range consists of three products; a wash, a scrub and a body lotion and the Yoga Blend Body Scrub is pictured above which contains walnut shell and microscrub beads to exfoliate skin for £9.99.
The Dark Circle Fix is a product I’ll be adding to my routine shortly as, for some reason, I’ve been neglecting my eye area for literally months – it’s lucky if it gets a quick layer of whatever I’m using to moisturise my face – so I plan to rectify this ASAP! The Dark Circle Fix is a hydrating formula designed to treat signs of ageing as well as reduce puffiness for £15.95.
Lastly is the other product I’m eager to try, which is the CC Eye Fix. This is a mix of everything as it’s both an eye treatment and a make-up item, with the key ingredients being oat extract, beeswax and vitamin E. I love any make-up that provides skincare elements, so this is quickly working it’s way up my ‘to try’ list. It’s available in Light or Dark for £9.95 each.
As you can see, it’s a pretty interesting range with some lovely formulations, ranging from gentle and mostly natural to the more hardcore products such as the acid-based products. All the range is available online here – link.
