My skin has ben freaking out recenty. I've had a considerable amount of stress in my personal life, I've not been eating right and I'm pretty sure that the air conditioner at my new office is just making things 10 times worse.
I'd picked these up a fair few weeks ago in the hope that they could help clear up the crazy amount of breakouts I was having. Here's how I got on.
Nip & Fab Dragons Blood Fix Cleansing Pads - £9.9
These pads have a mixture of salicylic acid, hylauronic acid and witch hazel within them, which aid in the deep cleansing of pores. They aim to reduce imperfections, increase hydration and refine the skins texture, all of which I suppose they did. The thing with these pads for me is the word 'cleanser'. After using a cleanser, I want my skin to feel completely refereshed and ready for the next step in my routine, but after using these I feel abit grubby. I tend to us these in the evenings, after I've removed all of my makeup and done a pretty good cleanse already. I just feel like these are more of a treatment for me, and that they leave too much behind on my skin. But other that that, they did work. My skin does appear plumper, and redness reduced, but I don't think I'll be repurchasing.
Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads - £12.95
The reason I ended up picking this duo up is because I was heading into Boots to pick these up and there was an offer on. I'd heard sooo many great things about these, that I just had to give them a go. The glycolic acid in the pads reexturises the skin, whilst the hyaluronic acid moisturises and refreshes. These pads feel so much more refreshing on the skin that the Dragons Blood ones, which makes less sense as these are more of a treatment pad than a cleanser. They've definately helped me to combat my spots and imperfections, althought I do wish they could do more to help with the skin discolouration after an angry spot, as these don't seem to help that much.
As much as I love trying out new things, and that these did work for me in some ways, I wasn't completely blown away. I'm still pining after my LaRoche Posay Effaclar Duo. Nothing has worked better as a chemical exfoliant than that has.
Overll, not bad, but I hope for better.
