Review: NIP + FAB Glycolic Fix Hand Renew

Description:

  • For those who want youthful looking hands via the use of glycolic and salicylic acids.
  • Improves the skin’s texture.
  • Those with rough skin on the hands (I have been using this on my feet).

DO NOT USE ON SENSITIVE/PEELING SKIN (it will burn – I learnt the hard way). And because this contains acids, you must use sunscreen in the day time.

Volume: 75ml

Price: £5.99

Can be purchased from the website: HERE

Directions:

Massage into hands before bedtime. Use 2-3 times a week. If you have sensitive skin, use only once a week.

Full ingredients list:

Aqua(Water), Glycerin (hydrating), Glyceryl Stearate SE, Cetearyl Alcohol (fatty alcohol), Glycolic Acid, Ammonium Acryloydimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol (fatty alcohol), Carbomer, Lactic Acid (AHA), HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Limonene, Parfum(Fragrance), Aloe Barbadensin Leaf Juice Powder (aloe vera-soothing), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil (soothe and hydrate), Disodium EDTA, Salicylic Acid (BHA), Ethylhexylglycerin, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Benzoate, Geraniol, Silica, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citral, Linalool

The fragrance is strong. I’m not a fan of it. I was able to continue using because I wasn’t putting it on my face.

Texture:

Thick, smooth – rubs into the skin and soaks in SO QUICKLY. Excellent for those who can’t stand waiting for creams to dry.

Overall:

I ended up using this cream on my feet. I used it more as a rejuvenating foot cream because I developed sensitivity on my hand and could therefore not use any acids (not just this product) on my hands. I really liked using this on my feet as a way to soften the dead skin cells (due to the AHA) and also hydrate my feet. I used this cream as a foot-mask 2-3 times a week and found that it did help reduce the lines on my feet.

I really like the idea of a cream that has added benefits than just hydration. The addition of acids elevates it from a typical moisturising cream, to a cream that will actually smoothen the skin out and retexturize. I think it is good, but it does mean you have to wear sunscreen AND you cannot have broken/sensitive or easily irritated skin or this will burn. If you can handle it, then it’s a good product to use. But it is very potent, hence why it’s recommended to use 2-3 times a week for regular skin.

Would I repurchase?

Yes I would (but I wouldn’t put it on my hands because they’re too sensitive. I would use this for my feet). However the fragrance really does put me off.

Score: 4/5
