I have been using Nip + Fab Night Fix for over three months now and I have to say, it’s suitably impressive. Unlike some other night treatments, this is a gel with a (dare I say it) light texture. It absorbs rapidly into the skin so I don’t get complaints from my other half about smelling like flowers or some patchouli concoction.
Neither do I have to worry about half the stuff ending up on my pillow. This may be a fantastic way to keep your linen conditioned but it’s not what you want when you’ve spent a percentage of your monthly wage on an essential piece of beauty kit.
And a night treatment is one of the best ways to feed your skin while you sleep. I like to see it as Nip + Fix doing some of the work so I don’t have to. Indeed, Nip + Fix say it contains some KiOsmetime-CG complex, which is gobbledygook in my eyes. But the fact that Night Fix combines wrinkle-fighting retinol, skin-softening rosehip oil and one of my favourite skincare ingredients hylauronic acid, was good enough reason to give it a go.
I first heard of hyaluronic acid when I was doing a stint as a make-up girl on the Shishedo counter at John Lewis. Considering this was now more than 10 years ago, it’s quite surprising to me that the beauty journos are still banging on about this moisture-boosting ingredient.
Yes, that’s right – hyaluronic acid locks in moisture, keeping the skin looking plumped and youthful. The good news is that hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin. Unfortunately the amount decreases over the years so it seems logical for beauty brands to add this hydrating ingredient to their moisturizers.
I like to think that it’s the hyaluronic acid that helps restore the moisture balance of my complexion. Whatever it is, I know that the slight tingle on application and easy-to-apply formula works on my 30-year-old skin. And compared to other products on the market, this anti-ageing gel is good value for money.
At just £17.95 a pop, you can afford to give it a go.
