Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Body Cream Review & Swatch-

Hello lovely ladies šŸ™‚

In order to help me with my keratosis pilaris skin condition (reddish bumps on arms), I have been recently trying exfoliating my arms with acid based toners & lotions. Pixi Glow Tonic seemed to be working a bit to smoothe & refine but I thought an acid based body lotion would be more effective. Turns out I was wrong. Read on to know why.

My take on theĀ Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Body Cream-

The packaging of the body cream is perfect. A sturdy baby blue plastic tube with a flip-top cap. It doesn’t get better than this. Very easy to use, store & carry. I loathe unhygienic tubs! Unfortunately the good things kind of end here.

The creamĀ is white in color with aĀ thin, lightweight consistency &Ā it glides on to skin without any heavy/greasy feeling at all šŸ™‚ It sinks into skin pretty quickly & my arms feel nice & soft but the hydration doesn’t last since I have extremely dry body skin. I always have to follow it up with a richer lotion/cream.

As for the main reason for which I hunted this cream down & bought it- the ability to soothe, smoothe & refine my bumpy arms, nah it doesn’t work šŸ™ I gave it a lot of time to work,more than a month & am almost through my tube but no improvement. If anything, my bumps have been acting up more :'(Ā 

The fragrance is ughh šŸ™ Bitter lemony & strongly reminds me of those foul smelling Fem & Anne French hair removing cream days šŸ˜ It lingers as well which makes it worse.

Pros of theĀ Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Body Cream:

1> Very convenient & hygienic tube packaging.

2> Lightweight, non-sticky texture sinks quickly into skin.

3> No sticky/heavy residue.

Cons of theĀ Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Body Cream:

1> Not hydrating enough.

2> Does not help soothe or calm my skin condition at all.

3> Horrid bitter lemon scent.

4> Strange list of ingredients where paraffin oil ranks 2nd while the touted acids are at the end.

5> Aggravated my sensitive skin.

Swatch of theĀ Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Body Cream-

My Rating: 2/5!

Do I recommend theĀ Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Body Cream?

Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Body CreamĀ claims to refine & smoothen bumpy skin & I tried it out for over a month rigorously but in utter vain. It aggravated my sensitive bumpy skin instead of solving the condition, was not hydrating enough & smells terrible. Definitely not recommended.
