Nip and Fab is a new product line that was launched in the UK in September, 2010. In March 2011, Nip + Fab beauty care products became available at Shopper’s Drug Mart stores across Canada. Products range from roughly $10-20 in price. On January 24, 2012 -this product appeared on the Today Show and I have had a lot of people searching for information on Nip and Fab.
I had the opportunity to test Nip and Fab Moisture Fix, a daily moisturizer designed to give skin a radiant and youthful glow.
Nip and Fab Claims?
According to Nip + Fab, their Moisture Fix contains hyaluronic acid to plump and fill skin, grapeseed oil to moisturize and elasticize, and meadowfoam seed oil to combat skin aging and reduce blemishes. The entire Nip + Fab line is marketed toward consumers who want measurable results from their beauty products, without having to spend a small fortune.
Now, before applying Nip + Fab Moisture Fix, I checked out a variety of sources on whether hyaluronic acid is safe to use during pregnancy. The results were inconclusive so I chose to err on the side of caution and Corey volunteered to be my guinea pig for this product test. He is prone to very dry skin, making him an excellent test subject. He has been testing Nip + Fab Moisture Fix for approximately one month.
Pros and Cons of Nip + Fab?
Nip + Fab Moisture Fix effectively moisturized Corey’s skin. He told me that his skin feels good after he applies it and there were no adverse reactions. In terms of the specific claims for this product (plumps, fills, moisturizes, elasticizes, combats aging, and reduces blemished) we both noticed that there was a noticeable difference especially in terms of the reduction of fine lines and blemishes.
The press release on Nip + Fab that I received stated that these products are “crammed with breakthrough natural and technologically advanced skin smoothing, boosting and firming ingredients.” I must admit that while some natural products were used, there were a lot of items on the ingredient list that weren’t great from a health/eco-friendly standpoint (such as Butylene Glycol, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, and a couple types of parabens).
Would I purchase Nip and Fab products again in the future?
No. There were too many ingredients in Nip and Fab that I would rather not put on my skin, especially since so many comparably priced and equally effective natural alternatives exist.
