Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser

A couple of weeks ago I posted a review about a Nip + Fab body gel that I'd be using and hated. When I purchased the moisturiser I also purchased this cleanser but gave it a couple of weeks to see how it worked with my skin. This product describes itself as:

"A deep cleansing, purifying formula for clear + radiant skin."

It includes:
Glycolic Acid: retextures + resurfaces
Apple Amino Acid: provides foaming effect + softens
Olive Oil: gives long-lasting hydration + smoothes

I mainly bought this product because it had amazing reviews on the boots website. But so did the other one so I wasn't expecting much. When I first used this I didn't really like it as I thought it made my skin feel too tight. It has quite a nice smell, almost grapefruity, but I put it back on the shelf deeming it another dud.

Then the other week I was out of my usual cleanser and this was what I had, and through using this twice a day for the past week or two I've noticed a really big difference in my skin. It feels soft and so clean. It gets rid of any makeup that remains and I feel that it has significantly reduced the redness of any blemishes that I have.

The texture is quite weird as it isn't that foamy, but I feel a little goes a long way with this product. It's really runny and comes out of the bottle, not like a thick gel at all but then when applied to the skin it quickly turns more gel like. The only thing I would criticise about this is the size of the bottle. You get 150ml for £7.95 at boots, but I can see myself running out of this within the month if I continue to use it as often as I do. I'm a huge lover of budget beauty and skincare and so in the long run this isn't as kind on my bank balance.

Overall, I'm glad that I gave this product a second chance because it's really become a staple in my everyday skincare routine and my skin feels so much better for it! I think I will repurchase and I may do it at the moment because Boots is offering a free gift with the purchase of 3 Nip + Fab products! This bottle is £7.95 here and is currently on 3 for 2.

I think this is a good example of not judging a brand by one product you don't like and I'm glad that I did give them another go!
