It’s Friday (YAY!) and I’m bringing you my latest beauty favourite. I’ve actually been using these particularly products since around July but wanted to wait until I’d finished them to give a true account of how I got on with them. I’m now desperately scraping out the final remnants, wishing they would go on and on, so I guess you can tell by that they’ve been great!

Nip+Fab Skincare Goodies

I wrote about Nip + Fab Cleansing Pads a while back and am delighted to update this post with a great offer that’s just come up and I couldn’t let you miss – I know I won’t be missing it 😉 So read on to find out more…

When a product I’ve been kindly sent from a PR has me hyperventilating because it’s nearly finished, I know I have to let you know about it because it has to be good! And when it knocks time off my beauty routine, well, then there’s even more to shout about…

NIP + FAB Dragon’s Blood Fix Cleansing Pads were sent to me in a lovely package along with some other products (more news on these coming soon) and caught my eye immediately. I was about to go on holiday and needed an easy carry, easy to use cleanser and these dinky pads came up trumps!


Being somewhat slovenly – the-faster-the-better products often get a thumbs up from me even though I feel a bit guilty. You see, as an established beauty writer, I’m not sure I should admit this because I do realise that a comprehensive skincare routine such as a ‘double cleanse’ and all the other skincare steps is probably preferable for ultimate skin health, but I’m sorry, sometimes…ain’t nobody got time for dat!

I did wonder whether I would rue my choice of cleansing as my skin often doesn’t agree with some of the slap dash cleansing wipes available, but these little beauties are enriched with salicylic and hyaluronic acids to deeply cleanse pores and hydrate too. Plus its witch hazel ingredient is a gentle astringent which leaves skin feeling refreshed and zingy.


The pads are quite ‘juicy’ so after swiping them across my face and lashes (they seem gentle enough for me to do this) I am left with quite damp skin which I then blot and leave for a few minutes before applying a moisturiser and/or serum.

Being slightly pedantic, there is one little downside in that they are quite small, so sometimes – on a heavy makeup night – you may need to use two to get a thorough cleanse of the whole neck and face..or maybe that’s just my big moon face? Anyway, that aside, my skin feels extra clean and looks brighter after using these pads and so I’ll definitely be stocking up.

UPDATE: NOW FOR THE EVEN BETTER PART! I’ve just been informed that there’s a special offer on ALL the different varieties in the NIP + FAB pad range (including the Dragon’s Blood Fix Cleansing Pads) and the tubs which usually cost £12.95 or £14.95 are available for just £5! Click HERE to find out more about the range and buy them before the offer runs out at 5pm tonight!  (I’m already on the case, so you better hurry!)

Oh I do love a bargain – and a beautiful one is even better! 😉

I love looking at beautifully made up eyes and am aware of the stunning transformation a few different shades of shadow can make. But honestly, since I’ve had the kids, although I love makeup – and as a beauty journalist, it has been a big part of my career – I’ve never really taken the time to experiment with new looks. There always seems to be something more pressing to tend to, so the fail safe black mascara, dark brown liner and, possibly if I’m going out, sweep of neutral or brown shadow has been my look du jour – et le soir.
