I have problems when I go to place like Ulta, because I get easily overwhelmed by having so many choices. So before I went in for my last haul I did some research online. I really wanted to find some good night time skin care products. Everything I had used before was OK. But I really felt the need to try something new.
What caught me on these was the packaging. Honestly, I know it is sad to say. But I have a thing if the product looks bad, I want to believe it is bad. The name was cute. Also the names of the individual products themselves were intriguing.
So, what ended up being purchased is:
- NIP + FAB Exfoliate + Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme ($14.95) Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme super-strength acid exfoliating facial pads to target oily + congested skin 5% glycolic acid aids natural skin exfoliation + refines skin’s texture salicylic acid helps unclog congested skin lactic acid gently weakens the bonds holding dead skin cells together.
- NIP + FAB Viper Venom Night ($14.95) A powerful night cream specially formulated with encapsulated time release retinol + SYN®-AKE, to reduce the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles + retexture skin, whilst you sleep. Hyaluronic acid provides long term hydration + an intensive plumping effect. Awake to smoother looking skin with a renewed youthful glow.

Now I’m not proclaiming these are miracle products by any means. However, I did notice quite a difference very quickly. My skin feels insanely clean after using the pads. I noticed the pores on my nose get smaller, I guess due to the unclogging process. They are strong in both smell and power. If you have super sensitive skin this might be overload for you. They are actual pads, if you’ve ever used an Oxy pad before for blemishes… same concept.
The night cream looks more like a thick yellow serum. It has a slight smell. A little bit goes a long way. You will literally feel your skin tighten. When I use this at night I wake up with a bit of a glow. I also end up with some extra sheen from oils on my face but that is fixed with a quick morning wash. If I use these regularly I know I will continue to see improvements. As I continue through my thirties I am getting better about a nightly routine, because I realize how important it is…
When I run out and if I re-purchase will be the true test!
