As someone who doesn’t wear foundation or any form of make-up for skin, I am always on the lookout for products that will prevent or reduce blackheads, hyperpigmentation as well as the general skincare concerns. Through my addiction to researching, buying, testing and binning, I discovered the products that work best for my skin often contain glycolic as the key ingredient. My favourites are Nip + Fab’s Glycolic Fix Pads and Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Foaming Cleanser; even after use over a two year period, the benefits remain evident.
However, I find Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Foaming Cleanser quite harsh so I went out looking for a new cleanser and although I’m a huge Nip + Fab fan, I had no idea that they had a glycolic range (including a cleanser). Another surprise, a Nip + Fab sale (via Superdrug)! A rare sight, I decided to stock up, two of each product (my beloved pads and Nip + Fab’s Glycolic Fix Cleanser)! As a designer, I cannot overlook the new packaging; I love it, from the orange to the typography (see the image, which features the old and new). I will start using the cleanser from tomorrow. I’ll be back in a few weeks with an extensive review.
