Beauty Review: NIP + FAB Kale Fix

Hello, hello. Back again with another beauty review and today I'm pleased to be showing you the latest, and seemingly most sort after, NIP + FAB collection to date

Besides making excellent rabbit food and being delicious with your curry, kale is the super-food that appears to be the 'in' thing to digest and now, it seems, to put on your face. Kale Fix by NIP + FAB works to hydrate the skin and strengthen it during the cold, winter months. "Made for all skin types" and already on a waiting list before it's release, here's my review of the long awaited Kale Fix range.

The Kale Fix Make-up Removing Pads* aim to be an gentle and easy method to remove waterproof make-up. The pads themselves have a textured gradient, each one containing kale and watercress to massage and moisturise the skin as it removes make-up. Certainly bursting with moisture, I was a little worried that they would leave my skin greasy but to my surprise, the excess moisture soon sinks in and left my skin soft and smooth with no excess oil build-up. I needed around 3 pads to remove all my make-up completely which could make these pretty pricey but the product works great and makes removing mascara pretty effortless. This is probably my favourite product from the collection. My skin definitely felt hydrated and if you get any in your eye, it's not actually that painful!

The Kale Fix Moisturiser* is made from kale (obviously), watercress, shea butter, aloe vera AND almond oil for deep yet gentle nourishment. It also claims to have a plumping effect. Being so packed full of oils, this was a little too much moisture for my combination skin. However, I used it sparingly and only on the areas that needed a little more attention and I really liked the results. The smell is a little off-putting (it smells like a mixture of hemp and cabbage) but it doesn't linger on the skin. If you have dry or combination skin, this one is a real treat. 

And finally, the Kale Fix Clay Mask* - a clay mask with witch hazel to draw out impurities from dirty pores and repair broken skin tissue. Now, famously, clay is used to dry out oily or spot-prone skin so I was a little apprehensive at first. Having read the bottle, it seems that this particular clay mask still contains the kale and watercress to lock in the hydration. Again, it has a slightly funny smell but it feels nice on the skin. After 10-15mins, it starts to crack and can be washed off easily with warm water. My skin certainly felt super soft afterwards though I don't think I could use this more than twice a fortnight due to the moisture build up. 

Overall, I was really rather pleased with this range. I'm always pretty apprehensive about trying new skin care ranges (they always seem to do more damage than good) but this one seems pretty darn good. I loved the make-up remover pads and moisturiser though the mask is one to be used very once in a while, not for regular use.

So what do you think of the NIP + FAB Kale Fix range? If only looks could kale...get it? Thanks to Nip + Fab for sending this to me to try before it hits stores. It's already on a waiting list but it launches later in September in Superdrug and can be found at nipandfab.com for outside the UK. As always, I love hearing your comments so please leave them below. Hope everyone's had a great weekend, 

Love and peace,

  6. This range sounds impressive! I've only tried one moisturizer from Nip+Fab and I wasn't blown away but it could be I only used it for two weeks and got bored of it. I'll need to keep an eye out for he launch of this range.
