Nip Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub Review


Ever since I discovered chemical exfoliation with chemical exfoliants like AHA/BHA’s I scarcely use a physical exfoliant like a face scrub. In fact, in my whole skincare collection, I only have two that were gifted to me and one of those is the Nip Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub. Today’s review will be focused on the Nip Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub and my experiences with it

What is it?

Triple action scrub with 3% glycolic acid and salicylic acid to brighten, renew and refine skin. Deep cleans pores and reduces blemishes from 1st use


This isn’t a scrub I reach for every week; in fact, sometimes I only use this scrub once a month in addition to my normal routine. My daily routine includes the Nip Fab Extreme Glycolic Pads With 5% Glycolic Acid(AHA) and it does a pretty good job of keeping my pores minimised and skin smooth and clear. I only reach for this scrub when I feel my skin needs a little more kick or when I have texture issues/congested skin.

The scrub is mild and quite grainy which I love with a pleasant scent, a little is all I need and a very light pressure to massage this over my face and neck avoiding the eye area. There is no need to use a face wash before using the scrub. After about a min, I would simply wash this off my skin with warm water, it washes off very easily. This scrub leaves my skin super smooth and pores clean! It clears whiteheads (those pesky little white spots you have around your chin and nose area) and texture issues (little bumps on the skin) with ease. It leaves my skin visibly smoother with a glow. I am happy it does dry out my skin. My skin loves AHA so I am not surprised this scrub works well with my skin! I love to follow this up with a soothing or moisturising face mask. but it works amazingly well with the Nip Fab Glycolic Fix mask( review pending)


This scrub is something I definitely want to keep in my routine. In the summer I reach for this more as my skin gets oiler and it also helps to balance oil. I usually switch between this and the Sukin Charcoal Pore Refining scrub which I have reviewed on Brown Beauty Talk. I will definitely purchase this and recommend this for oily, congested skin types. With the low conc of 3%, I think this scrub is perfect for 1st-time users of AHA. I don’t get a stinging sensation with this- my skin is used to higher concs but a low one like this shouldn’t be a problem.

As always, I can’t stress enough the importance of a high SPF when using any sort of acids. AHA/BHA’s no matter the concentration leave your skin more sensitive to the sun, even in the winter so protection is essential!

This scrub is a must have in your skincare routine, it’s not something you need to use every week or frequently but for skin that needs a jump start, this is a must-have!

This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)
