Happy weekend everyone! I am so happy that it’s May, because April was NOT good to me. Last month I decided to try out a few new skincare items from a line called Nip + Fab. I’ve never tried anything from their line and I was pretty excited to get my hands on them. I purchased the Glycolic Fix Cleanser and the Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Pads. Both items were rated over 4 stars on Ulta’s website.
I definitely understand that certain products work better for certain people and I’m not quite sure why these didn’t work for me. I was extremely disappointed and will be returning them to Ulta. The purpose of this post is not to bash the brand, because I honestly do not know too much about them, but I just wanted to share my experience.
I debated posting this photo (it’s fully unedited), seeing as it’s extremely embarrassing, but I really wanted you all to understand fully the reaction that these products gave me. The type of “acne” that I get is all hormonal. I ONLY breakout on my chin and jaw line during that certain time of the month. I don’t ever break out on my forehead, ever. These products broke me out like braille there as well as on my nose…and let’s be honest, everywhere on my entire face!
These products saved my skin from that terrible breakout! I decided to cut those Nip + Fab products fully out of my regimine and went back to my holy grail Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser. I incorporated these babies in to help as an emergency!
1. Acure Brightening Facial Scrub I used this in the shower to really clean deep down in my pores and get out any gunk. Acure Organics is an amazing brand that uses 100% all natural products with 100% biodegradable packaging! Yeah, go green!
2. Murad’s Acne Spot Treatment I incorporated this after my moisturizer at night before bed. The sulfur + salicylic acid in this really helped combat the nasty breakout while I slept.
3. Mario Badescu Drying Mask this mask I used a few times during the process and immediately I noticed results, because the size of the breakout would be reduced within just a few hours of use. This mask has calamine and sulfur in it, I think my skin loves sulfur during a breakout.
Now it’s May and my skin is 75% back on track! Have you tried any of the products listed above, if so, what were your experiences? Are there any products that make you breakout like those did to me?
Thanks for reading!
