I’m definitely not on the kale bandwagon but I get why people are, so I’m not surprised that skin care companies have jumped on it. When we received Nip + Fab’s Kale Fix collection, we weren’t really sure what to expect. Both of us had the chance to try the products and we had some interesting (and non-interesting results).
When I try a new skin care line, I generally try out the moisturizer first. I like a lot of things about this one; it’s light, it moisturizes and it absorbs really quickly. All in all, a good option for a daytime moisturizer. It’s really too bad I hate the kale scent of it. It’s such a strong scent that I literally used this twice so I could review it and then gave up. I wish there was less of a smell because I would’ve used this a lot more.
Make-Up Removing Pads
I’m used to using huge wipes to take off my makeup but these pads actually come in really handy. I use them to just take my eye makeup off before I use my Clarisonic or after a shower when I have some leftover mascara run-off and they don’t sting or dry out my eyes. I generally use one pad per eye and they’re not the greatest at waterproof mascara so I have a tendency to go through these pretty quickly. They get the job done though and I was completely surprised by how much I liked them.
I have used a ton of masks this year, so I feel like I have become pickier as we get into the second half. I had high hopes for this mask because of the brand and the fact that it’s a clay mask. I am used to clay masks really drawing out everything that is clogging up my skin. Unfortunately, I wasn’t overly impressed with the Nip + Fab mask. The colour was fun (who doesn’t love a bright green face mask?) and it did dry like a regular clay mask, but when it was cleaned off my face didn’t feel super clean. In the end, that’s really what it comes down to and unfortunately it didn’t live up to it.
