Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix - VEGAN & CRUELTY FREE

Let's stop talking about food and talk a little about skincare. Recently my skin has been SO bad, I never used to get bad skin but now I'm almost 30 I guess it's my time. I researched a little online and had a snoop at the Boots website. I had read a lot of good reviews on the Nip + Fab products so decided it was time to spend a little more than I usually would on something that would hopefully help me achieve the results I have been looking for.

I picked the Glycolic Fix range as this seemed to be more targeted to what I was looking for. It helps exfoliate, boost skin radiance and helps refine the skins texture, deeply cleanses pores & helps keep blemishes at bay - perfect!

The items I chose were: 

Glycolic Scrub Fix - £9.95

This 3-in-1 exfoliant is packed with 3% glycolic acid and salicylic acids to refine, brighten + renew. Glycolic Fix Facial scrub works deep into pores to cleanse, polish + reduce blemishes.

Glycolic Cleansing Fix  - £7.95 (A Kylie Jenner favourite - apparently!)

Glycolic Acid works to retexture the skin to hide the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles, whilst Olive Oil deeply hydrates and smoothes the skin.

Glycolic Fix Serum - £14.95

Designed with pore refining ingredient PoreAway, the size of pores are visibly reduced for a more refined, even looking complexion.

Once a day I have been exfoliating with the scrub. The product itself is like fine sand, I can't quite explain but it really does feel like you are scrubbing away the dead skin - it's not painful but you can definiately feel it. Next, I take the cleanser - I wet my face and take a 10p size blob and use my fingers to work it around my face creating a foam. I then wash and dry as normal and apply the serum. This feels quite tacky and if like me you have spots it can sting for a couple of seconds - nothing too bad. 

I was really shocked to find that my skin has started to clear up, I took a few before & after pics (which I don't want to share sorry! I don't like the before at all :( )I was so happy when I put these photos together as I could really see a difference. After searching on the old google machine I found articles that link spots on the chin area to a hormonal imbalance - further research suggested trying a sprinkle of flaxseed every day to help. I had been taking flaxseed tablets to help my hair and decided to stop once I had run out - strangely this is when my skin started to act up! I have repurchased them and will hopefully see even more of a difference in the coming weeks. I know people will think my skin isn't that bad but it does affect my confidence especially as my job is sat at the front desk - make up just doesn't seem to help!

Have you tried any of the Nip + Fab range - let me know your favourites in the comments below.
