Nip Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask Review


It’s no secret I have been loving the Glycolic Fix range from NipFab skincare. I have reviewed their products here, here and here too. I recently shared my haul of their products on my insta even. But why do I like the products so much? 1 because its Glycolic acids and my skin loves that, 2 because it’s affordable. Today I have a full review of the Nip Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask which is part of their ever popular Glycolic Fix range

What is it?

A 5% glycolic acid mask with evermat technology that promises to smooth skin, reduce the look of enlarged pores and reduce shine. It also has glycerin for moisture


I have had the mask in my collection for a while now. It’s one of those masks I forget I have but when I use it I am impressed and remember why I love it so much. The Instant fix mask is a gel-like texture, and has a 5% glycolic acid content. I reach for this mask when I am having texture issues or clogged pores and when I want smooth skin.

Although my skin is used to higher aha content, this mask stings, just a little bit but only for 1 min or so when I put it on. I can imagine it been worst for 1st-time users so please please patch test before you put this on your whole face! Anyway, I apply a thinish layer wit my mask brush after cleansing my face and leave it on for 10 mins. It’s a little tricky to wash off but I find that with a lot of other gel textured masks. Results? My skin is visibly smoother and my pores look reduced. I do feel like the results get better the next day. My tzone doesn’t get oily and the overall appearance of my skin looks more refined

The Nip Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask is my 1st ever glycolic acid mask ( I have now picked up the 30% AHA and 2% BHS from the Ordinary, you know the red one!) and I really love it. For me, it leaves my skin smoother and subsequent application of serums etc sinks in like a dream! Will I repurchase? Yes!


It was a good addition to my collection, I have now run out of it :(.  It’s reasonably priced (and currently on sale on the Nip Fab website) so if you love glycolic acids and have wondered by this one, please pick it up! If you are a hard-core glycolic acid user, I think you will like this. Caution- please do a patch test if you are unsure PLUS USE SPF IN THE MORNINGS IF YOU USE THIS MASK OR ANY OTHER ACID PRODUCT. I mean you should be using SPF anyway and yes that includes winter and fall seasons!

Who can’t wait for my February Ultimate Empties Challenge post? Seriously counting down the days! It doesn’t look like I will hit my target but I still got some time to go! See Jan’s post here

Check out this mask on the Nip Fab website. But also in stores in Boots & Superdrug

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!

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?)
