SKINCARE: NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads
As a sufferer of dry skin, I am all for chemically exfoliating. I have recently run out of my Alpha H Liquid Gold, and before I make the Pixi Glow Tonic purchase, I thought I would give these NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads* a whirl.
Not only are these super easy to use (no faff of pouring liquid onto multiple cotton pads), but they are rather effective too. The Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads combine a selection of key ingredients which had me hooked at the first read of the description: glycol acid, which is said to retexture and resurface; hyaluronic acid, a holy grail ingredient in the skincare market, which moisturises and refreshes; and blue daisy to soothe and calm the skin. Now, I have never heard of blue daisy and I don't find these pads particularly calming, I don't think that's the right word, but I wouldn't ever expect an acid-based product to be so, so I'm not that fussed. I do, however, find that they exfoliate my skin efficiently without that horrible stripped feeling: my skin feels smooth, hydrated, retextured, and well prepped for the following steps in my skincare routine, as well as considerably brighter. I don't use these all the time, only every other day or two when my skin's dryness is building up in patches. I also really relish the fact that they don't dry out. I have had mine for a while now and they're still moist (don't all cringe at that word, there's no other way to describe it).
