I’ve had a bit of an hit and miss relationship with Nip and Fab as a brand. Some of their skincare products are amazing but I’ve only found one product within their makeup range that I like and that’s their Fix Stix Definition Contour Stick. I have got a couple of other Nip and Fab makeup products coming up on my blog soon (their concealer and setting spray) but I think I’m going to swerve their makeup products going forward and stick to their skincare range. Nip and Fab were having a sale on their skincare range so I picked up a few products, one of which is the Nip and Fab 2 in 1 Teen Skin Fix Pore Blaster £8.99 which is part of their Purify range. The Teen Skin range like the name suggests, is aimed at teenage skin but the products can obviously be used by anyone and I thought the Pore Blaster might be great for my problem areas.
The ultimate skincare solution to purify congested skin. A dual-purpose mask and scrub to gently polish away impurities and control excess oil build-up. Exfoliating volcanic pumice and kaolin work to unclog pores whilst an amino acid derivative helps improve skin clarity for pure and fresh-looking skin.
Salicylic Acid: helps unclog pores to prevent breakouts
Volcanic Pumice: deeply purifies + exfoliates
Wasabi Extract: a powerful antioxidant + antimicrobial agent
Nip and Fab 2 in 1 Teen Skin Fix Pore Blaster Directions:
• As a scrub – gently massage onto damp skin avoiding eye contour area. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
• As a mask – apply an even layer over entire face. Leave on until completely dry. Rinse off with warm water.
The Nip and Fab 2 in 1 Teen Skin Fix Pore Blaster £8.99 has a thick consistency which feels and smells a little like suncream, and it even feels a little like suncream as you massage it onto the skin.
I prefer to use it as more of a mask first by applying it to my blemish prone areas, avoiding my dry and sensitive patches and then leave it to sit on the skin until it’s fully dried and then rinse away by massaging a hot cloth onto the skin. The cream contains tiny volcanic pumice exfoliative particles which really do a great job at buffing away dead skin cells but it’s very drying on the skin, and I’m only using it on my non-dry areas.
I think this product would be great for super oily skin as it banishes shine too, which I guess is what the ‘Purify’ in the name is alluding to. After rinsing my skin, I have to smother it in my Bioderma Moisturising Creme which is the richest moisturiser in my collection otherwise my skin is left feeling very tight. My favourite Nip and Fab scrub is still the Glycolic Fix Scrub, but if you see this on offer it’s worth a try if you have oily skin that needs clarifying.
If you have normal to dry skin, I don’t think this would work for you as well as the Glycolic Fix Scrub but it’s still a product I’ll continue to use should I have a cluster of breakouts and I really want to purify my skin.
