I am that bitch. I never get spots, my skin isn’t textured and I have normal skin type.
there is a but! I’ve got some poreblems. (
not apologising for the pun)
If you have read my blog before you will know that I always use a pore filling primer like the NYX Pore Filler because I have rather large, large, large, LARGE, pores on my cheeks. Not my nose, just my cheeks? is this normal? help a sister out? Anyway, I always seek out products that claim to reduce the appearance of those pesky holes in the face nobody asked for but for some reason the vast majority of us have received. Nothing has ever really worked, occasionally I will see a difference on the first use but then after that, the magics gone and I am once again … porous?
That was until I discovered my ultimate pore tackling combo. I am actually getting a bit sicky at the word pore now but there is nothing synonymous for me to use so we will just carry on. Does anyone else have any words that just gross them out??
I went into TK MAXX with my sister – with no intentions of spending any money but here we are… again – saw that they had Nip n Fab skin care in. I didn’t know much about Nip n Fab, was it high end? was it drug store? what’s the craic?
My sister told me she had received the Glycolic Instant Fix Mask in one of her subscription boxes and recommended it to me. (If you watch my insta hauls you will know I purchased this about a month ago so I have given myself a long time to test these out, just so I can see the long term results)
I also picked up The Viper Venom Fix Blurring Shot and The Viper Venom Micro Blur fix, which is a primer. I tried the primer out a few times but I was not sold, it did nothing for me. I’m not going to lie but I can’t even remember why I didn’t like it, I just remember it looking like a sack of shit.
The two other products on the other hand, have become holy grails. Combined these two products are like cheese and crackers, Chrissy Tiegen and John Legend, 2008 and dream matte mousse!
I use the face mask about three times a week. Normally I will cleanse my skin, jump in the bath to open up it all up a bit and then put on a thin layer on, for the recommended ten minutes, washing it off with warm water – If you have sensitive skin I would recommend doing a patch test because it can be a bit spicy!
Here are the main ingredients and what they claim to do:
glycolic acid: retextures + resurfaces. Reduces appearance of fine lines + wrinkles
evermat&trade: minimizes pore size, reduces shine, refines skin tone
amino acid: skin brightener, helps fade age-spots, improves clarity + evenness of skin tone
glycerin: moisturises, revives + helps restore skin suppleness
From my experience, I really have to agree. I’m only 24 so I can’t really speak for wrinkles but my fine lines are reduced and my pores are so minimal now. I would say that it can sometimes feel a bit on the dryer side straight after but that is when I move in with the rest of my skin care routine.
The Viper venom shot I use in both my morning and evening skin care routine. The product says you can add to moisturiser or serum for a blurring effect of applied straight to the skin as a concentrate. I personally apply it straight to the skin and my skin does look flawless and blurred.
Nip & Fab Claim the ingredients:
5x concentrated Syn®-Ake: smooths and softens
soft focus powders: mattifying + instant blurring effect
tightening complex: immediate lifting effect
Does what it says on the tin.
These two products have CHANGED my skincare routine game up and by extension my makeup because you are only ever as good as your base. Both of these products are available on the Nip & Fab website and I believe both are in the sale!
Thank you for reading my angels, as always let me know in the comments what you think! Also a quick word to say I know my posting has been all over the shop recently but hopefully I will be uploading every Wednesday and Sunday as of next week!
Love you! Bye!
