Nip Fab Glycolic Fix Extreme Night Pads Review

NipFab is a mega drugstore brand with a range of amazing products at affordable prices. I love NipFab and I have tried a lot of their products. I particularly love the Glycolic Fix range because I love acids so much, the Glycolic Fix Extreme range has 5% Glycolic acid in addition to salicylic and lactic acids plus hyaluronic acid.


I got these pads a while back, last year or probably the year before when they did their £5 offer. I’m almost done with this tub, having used 2 previously. These pads are the same size as the Daily Fix pads with the same texture. It contains 60 pads.

The extreme line has 5% AHA content although I really wouldn’t call 5% AHA extreme. I do really like these pads because it’s also a blend of other acids plus hyaluronic acid for hydration. I use them as toners after cleansing in my PM routine. They leave my skin smoother and pores reduced. My only conn is that the pads are a little too thin and small.


The Glycolic range is one of the best in the drugstore. In recent years acids have become very popular so they are a few options to pick from. I like this range because it has a blend of acids plus hyaluronic acid for hydration. I didn’t experience any tingling or irritation from this product but my skin is very used to acids. You can begin with the Daily Fix pads which have 2% AHA or they have pads sensitive skin as well.

I wouldn’t brand 5% AHA as extreme, a lot of other acid toners in the drugstore also start at 5% without the extreme label but I still recommend them.

Always use SPF in the AM after acid use.

NipFab Extreme pads are available in NipFab

They usually have £5 offers on many of their products, it’s worth holding out for the discounts.

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! 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?)
