NIP + FAB Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads – Product Review

Hey guys, welcome to a product review of NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads. These are great little exfoliating pads that have helped keep my skin smooth. They are relatively inexpensive and are cruelty free!

According to the website…

“60 radiance-boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid (2. 8%) retexture + resurface skin whilst witch hazel helps to tone. This moisturising formula with hyaluronic acid + soothing blue daisy helps to reveal brighter + smoother looking skin. Glycolic acid retextures + resurfaces. Hyaluronic acid: moisturises + refreshes. Blue daisy: soothes + calms”

I have really enjoyed using these pads and I think that they actually do what they claim to do. These pads retail for $34.95 for a pack of 60 at Priceline but you can often get them on sale. I use these about 2-3 times a week, so they are good value for money for me. I find they have helped with the texture of my skin making it a lot smoother. My skin is less bumpy and less prone to pimples. I have fairly sensitive skin and these acid pads don’t sting or irritate my skin (but do remember everyone’s skin is different).

Top 10 Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Glycolic Acid (an AHA, a-hydroxy acid used as an exfoliator to shift dead skin cells), Polysorbate 20 (used as a stabiliser), Sodium Hydroxide (used to neutralise acids), PEG-12 Dimethicone (a silicone based lubricant), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water (an astringent i.e. tightens body tissue), Phenoxyethanol (preservative), Benzyl Alcohol (aromatic alcohol), Alcohol Denat (anti-foaming, astringent and anti-microbial alcohol).

I’m not super impressed by these ingredients as there is a lot of alcohol listed, but am also reassured by the first three ingredients. It is refreshing to see the advertised ingredient as number three (meaning it’s quantity in the product is only less than water and glycerin). Often you see a product advertising a certain ingredient and then find it listed as number ten or twenty in the list of ingredients, meaning it only makes up a small percentage of the product. However, it is interesting to note that the advertised blue daisy and hyaluronic acid don’t make the top ten ingredients.

Overall I have really enjoyed using these products, have seen results and will continue to use them!
