Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads Review

I am a big fan of acid toning, I feel it really makes a difference in my skin and I've done it every day for years. There aren't many affordable and easily available acid toners, but these facial pads are an amazing find! I hope this review helps people who don't know about acid toning, and would like to try it. This can also help people who already do it but want a new product for it. 


The pads come in this hand size tub which works great for travel. 
Price - 60 pads for £12.99
Texture - Textured, bumpy soft pad
Finish - Exfoliated, toned, refreshed skin

What they say
Unveil younger looking skin. 60 radiance boosting pads soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid retexture and resurface skin whilst witch hazel helps to tone. 

Key ingredients
Glycolic acid - Provides even exfoliation of the skin.
- Reduces fine lines and signs of premature ageing. 
- Further products and treatments can penetrate deeper.

Hyaluronic acid - Moisturises and hydrates.

Blue daisy - Soothes and calms.

What is it
These are thin pads soaked in beneficial acids and ingredients that are a great way to exfoliate without using harsh scrubs and beads. They leave the skin feeling soft, smooth and looking bright and radiant. Chemically exfoliating is great for mature skins, as beads can give you broken capillaries. They don't dry the skin out, and are suitable for AM or PM.



How I use it
I use them at night time after cleansing well. I take one pad and swipe it all over my face and neck, flip it over and do it again. It brightens, tones and prepares for serums and moisturisers. 
( I do get a tickling sensation when I use these. I believe it's my skin getting use to the Glycolic acid, as before this I only used Salicylic acid.)

Pros
- Affordable way to acid tone
- Gentle on the skin
- Smoothes and evens skin
- Fresh scent
- Non abrasive 

Cons
- None

Summary
I love these pads. They are my first purchase from Nip and Fab and I want to try more from the Glycolic range. The pads are great for all skin types, and ages. (Late teens upwards) My second favourite acid toning product! Check if you have an allergy to AHAs or Glycolic Acid. Thank you for reading!
