These were my second Nip+Fab purchase after I quickly realized the less potent version of these, which I've also reviewed here (Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads) were working. I feel using an extreme pad rather than the normal pad every two days helped me achieve results even faster. The price is great for a drugstore product that works so well and has a high end feel. I purchased mine at Shopper's Drug Mart (Canada), they sometimes have sales. I have not seen Nip+Fab sold anywhere else in the Greater Toronto Area. The packaging is excellent. Eventually the pads on top may begin to dry out, but storing the jar upside down just for a few days completely solves this problem. I've been using these once every two nights for 2-3 months, albeit not religiously. I am still trying to figure out exactly how often I should use them for the best results. As for Nip+Fab's claims - Do these refine pores and brighten the complexion? Yes, I am bright and near poreless! Do they de-congest the skin? To a point - They do get rid of dead skin but I have two DEEP recurring zits that have not improved whatsoever. They do gently exfoliate the skin. Do they help fade discolouration in the face (acne scarring, pigmentation)? Again, yes to a point. Not completely, however I stopped being consistent after a month or so. May work well on brand new scars with consistent treatment, or it could just be me as everyone's skin differs. Does the salicylic acid penetrate into and unclog pores helping to combat black heads and reduce blemishes? I didn't have many blackheads to begin with but yes, I now have absolutely none. However, so far I don't feel it reduces, helps or soothes blemishes. Does the lactic acid remove dead cells and toxins from the skin for a smoother and more even toned surface? Yes, that deep down clean feeling for the most part and the only bumps left on my face are breakouts when they happen. Highly recommend for texture issues! Does the hyaluronic acid improve skin hydration and keep skin feeling soft and plump? Yes, I no longer have dry patches ever, and my skin is always soft and plump since I started Nip+Fab. Note that my results are based on using the Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads, Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme and Glycolic Fix Overnight Purifying Gel together. Finally, will I repurchase, and do I recommend? Definitely.
