Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme VS Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Facial Pads

I love exfoliating pads, they have always been apart of my night time skincare routine (would you like to see?) so recently i've been trying out extreme night pads to the daily ones by Nip & Fab to see if there was an actual difference so here are my thoughts:

Who are Nip & Fab?
So firstly who is Nip & Fab? Nip & Fab are a more affordable skincare brand and can be purchased at supermarkets, boots and superdrug. It was founded by the founder of Rodial so you will notice that both brands are kinda similar. Nip & Fab's slogan is "Accessible, Affordable + Effective. Nip & Fab was created for a woman who wants it all." Now for me that is exactly what I want and because of that is brand I reach to a lot. Also being created by the founder of Rodial you can get the same products for a lot less which is perfect!

Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Facial Pads

These pre soaked pads are suppose to be radiance boosting, they are soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid which retextures and resurface the skin whilst the witch hazel helps to tone. They also have a moisturising formula which is hyaluronic acid, soothing blue daisy which helps to reveal bright and smoother skin. They say you can use these pads morning and night but I just prefer to exfoliate at night. 

They retail for £12.95 for 6o pads and can be purchased from any supermarket or Superdrug and Boots. 
Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme

These pads are suppose to be just a more intense version of the day time pads. They have a higher level of glycolic acid at 5% and also have the addition of salicylic acid which is great for people who suffer with acne. They also claim to refine pores, brighten the complexion and de-congest the skin. They are suppose to be used 2-3times a week depending on your skin type. Personally I don't feel like these are extreme and I use them every night, they are just a pre soaked pad in:

-  glycol acid which is meant to gently exfoliate the skin, help discolouration on the face
- Salicylic acid which is meant to unclog pores, combat blackheads and reduce blemishes ( which we all need a bit of salicylic acid in our life especially at that time of the month girls!)
-  Lactic acid which removes dead cleans, for smoother skin and more even toned surface
- Hyaluronic acid which improves skin hydration which keeps your skin feeling soft and plump
Full list on ingredients listed at the bottom of the post.

Personally i'm overly impressed my these pads I haven't seen a great change in texture and pores like I did with the Pixi glow tonic (review here).

These pads retail for £14.95 and for that you get 60 pads. Available from Boots, Superdrug, supermarkets and Feel unique.


Overall they are very similar just that the day ones are not as harsh but personally I didn't think the night pads were that extreme, they claim to do the exact same thing just at different strengths and different ingredients. Also the night pads are a little bit more expensive which i'm not sure why i'm putting it down to having more ingredients.

Which do I prefer ?

I prefer the Night pads because I just felt like they did a little bit more to my skin than the day ones.

Cruelty Free/Vegan?

Now this a tricky one as different people say different things. 

Have you tried any Nip & Fab products if so what are your favourites?

Thank you for reading!
