This is the second set of PR I’ve received from NIP + FAB and I have mixed feelings. The first thing that I just have to get off my chest is that the products that I’ve tried so far all have strange scents. The Kale line smelled…well like Kale, which I thought was a weird scent to be putting on my skin and just overall wasn’t fond of it, and the Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask smells quite strongly of mens cologne, which I am not suuuuper impressed about. It’s not that I don’t like mens cologne, but I feel that a) the scent is way too strong and b) it’s a strange scent for a face mask? It also makes me wonder how much fragrance is in the product and while I’m not one of those people who care that much about how “clean” a product is, I do appreciate when the Fragrance ingredient is closer to the end of the ingredient list.
As for the mask itself, I have noticed that my skin looks more smooth and soft when I take it off, but I can’t say I’ve noticed any super crazy changes, which makes me sad because I wanted to try this mask for ages! The Glycolic Scrub Fix however, I do enjoy. It smells normal (thank you) and while it is very grainy and rough, I love how it makes my skin feel afterwards and it does an amazing job of exfoliating! (I even used it on my elbows because they’re insanely dry and patchy). If you’re looking for a good scrub, I’d definitely recommend this one, however I do suggest only using it once or twice a week as it is quite a rough one, and using it more than that will just to more damage to your skin than good.
