Nip & Fab Kale Fix Range Review (*)
Superfoods continue to be promoted throughout retailers as nutrient powerhouses that aid in multiple ways throughout the human body. Filled with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and polyphenols (micronutrients that help prevent degenerative diseases), it’s no joke that superfoods are extremely beneficial.
Kale is listed as one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet so when Nip & Fab launched their Kale Fix range in September 2015 I was surprised why no other brands had introduced superfoods into their skincare before!?
The range itself contained ingredients such as kale and watercress too ‘reinvigorate the skin with vitamins to protect against the free radical damage and soften/ hydrate dry skin’, sounds like the perfect winter skincare range too me!
Nip & Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser
Although the scent of these products aren't too my liking (being a creamy, milky like pungency), this moisturiser has to be one of my all-time Nip & Fab favourites. The moisturiser itself has a thick consistency that glides over the face like silk and melts into the skin almost like a serum. Quenching the skins thirst the product leaves a protective film barrier over the skin that protects it from damage and is great to use before applying makeup. Although once applied it leaves the skin looking slightly shiny I’ve had no trouble applying my makeup on straight after and it turning into a semi-matt appearance with the aid of a finishing pressed powder. This product is also great for breakouts as it helps to calm the skin as well as smooth it over ready for your base of foundation or tinted moisturiser.
Nip & Fab Kale Fix Clay Mask
This again has the same scent however it obviously doesn’t bother me too much as I use these products quite often (the moisturiser on a daily basis). The clay mask seems just like any other face mask with a thick consistency and grey/ cream tint however as it is a hydrating mask my skin drank the whole product up within minutes. After applying the face mask the grey/cream clay soon disappears into the skin as it pulls in the ingredients and leaves the skin feeling hydrated but don’t forget to wash it off! There has been a few occasions where I’ve applied the mask, started doing something else and forgotten I ever had it on! However the end result leaves you skin feeling smooth, soft and rehydrated with very similar results to a popular brand of overnight face mask!
Nip & Fab Kale Fix Makeup Remover Pads
I previously use to use the Nip & Fab Glycolic Facial Pads which were great in between removing makeup and moisturising as they prepped and exfoliated the skin. These however (although they are ‘makeup remover pads’) are so tiny I decided to use them in the mornings after washing my face to cool and calm, and awaken the skin after a night’s sleep. They did freshen my face a little but I didn’t really get enough benefit from them to use them on a daily basis. They are great to use to remove non waterproof eye makeup as they are soft and delicate on the skin but again I couldn’t imagine using these for my whole face.
