NIP + FAB, the affordable line from the woman behind Rodial, has just launched a new product called Glycolic Fix. For you Rodial lovers out there, the quality of ingredients in both lines is comparable, N+F is less expensive because there are less actives in it – i.e. it’s meant for less damaged skin. The prices and packaging of this brand’s products are remarkable given the quality. For just $12.99 you get 60 pads that are perfect for fighting acne in a pinch. I’ve written about my love for these kinds of pads before. My post-workout routine entails washing my face with the Clarisonic and then wiping my face, neck, and upper arms with a glycolic or salicylic acid pad (the other day a woman asked me if my “mini facial” was going to take much longer because she needed to wash her hands…). These pads won’t dry out your skin so there’s no need to reach for a moisturizer afterwards and they’re formulated with hyaluronic acid to fight signs of aging in addition to breakouts (blue daisy provides the hydration).
$12.99 for 60 pads is pretty hard to beat…I know a lot of women do not wash their face after the gym and while these are ideal post cleanser, if you’re really in a time crunch using these on their own is better than nothing!
