Nip + Fab Glycolic instant fix mask REVIEW

I used the Glycolic Fix pads and Glycolic cleanser from this brand before. I was highly impressed so opted to experiment with the Glycolic instant fix mask when my holy grail glamglow finished. Embarrassingly enough I was swayed by the fact Kylie Jenner raves about this product (as if this is all she uses to achieve that flawless finish 😉 ). I bought this product on offer in Superdrug for £11.50.

 

The instructions stated to apply a thin layer on clean, dry skin for ten minutes. I was shocked to see the mask was a clear gel. After I applied the mask to my skin I experienced a slight tingling. I convinced myself that this was due to the presence of Glycolic acid. I compulsively checked the clock to see if the time was up so I could remove the mask as it felt extremely uncomfortable. I usually view the application of a face mask as a pampering treatment. I washed the mask off with warm water. Admittedly, my skin looked soft and clear but there was small red blotches dispersed over my face. After a moment of sheer panic the blotches began to subside. My skin definitely felt tighter. I then proceeded to apply my night regime of products.

 

The next morning my skin was glowing!!!

 

This mask is a no-fuss pick me up. I would suggest using it no more than once a week as irritation may occur. It definitely is for oily/combination skin, I would avoid at all costs if your skin is anyway dehydrated or sensitive.

 

I liked this mask but I didn’t love it. I have repurchased my almighty glamglow and it will still remain at the front of my vanity shelf.
