Name: Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Day and Night Duo
Price: $54.95 for set of two
What it does: Two sets of 60 facial cleansing pads that are designed to exfoliate, resurface and retexture skin for a smooth and bright complexion. The pads are infused with 2.8% glycolic acid for day and 5% for night.
Key ingredients: Glycolic acid, witch hazel (day), salicylic acid (night)
Available from: nipandfab.com.au

How it feels/smells/looks

Each pad is textured, so it feels a little rough on the skin. That said, it’s perfect to help skin feel ‘awake’ in the morning and slough off makeup before bedtime. Ideal for Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Why I like it

Unlike with most facial wipes, my skin is left feeling refreshed, hydrated, smooth and bright. I wouldn’t have believed me either, but here we are. 

Areas for improvement

I’m characteristically lazy, so this is a nice alternative for my rinse/lather/cleanse routine. But with everyday use (whoops), my skin was stripped and became a little sensitive. As with all facial wipes, it’s best to keep these for occasional use.

Final comments

A worthy duo to keep in your bedside drawer. For those times when you're feeling lazy, like me.
