For the millionth time I entered Boots looking for one product and got sucked into a 3 for 2 promotion, I am so WEAK! I was repurchasing my Micellar cleansing water (my favourite cleanser of all time!) and I found myself at the Nip + Fab section. I have been a fan of this collection since it launched as I worked in Harvey Nichols at the time. Nip + Fab is from the creators of Rodial skin care, which are known for using the best possible ingredients and getting amazing results. Nip + Fab is the more affordable range, but the quality hasn’t really been compromised.
I decided to treat myself to the Hyaluronic Fix Body Gel because hyaluronic acid is my new best friend (see my review of hydraluron to see why). As the title suggests, I am going on holidays and I want my skin to be soft, smooth and healthy before I jump into a bikini. I am really bad at body skin care, I can spend hours making sure my face looks and feels good, but seeing as my body has been hidden under layers of clothes for almost a year, I just don’t invest nearly as much time in it.
Hyaluronic acid is a really important ingredient in skin care as it deeply hydrates the skin. It has been referred to as the ‘fountain of youth’ as it can hold over 1000 times its own weight in moisture. Moisturised and hydrated skin is healthy and plump, which is exactly how I want to look on the beach this Summer.
The gel itself is initially sticky when applied to the skin, but is really lightweight and is absorbed within minutes. I have noticed my skin become so much softer a smoother immediately after the first use. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and I can honestly say my skin has never felt better! The side effect of this also means that the life of my false tan is prolonged.
My body care routine is currently:
- Dry brushing once or twice a week
- full body exfoliation scrub once a week (DIY scrub coming soon!)
- Applying Nip + Fab body fix gel once a day (usually after showering, or before bed if I shower at the gym)
Unfortunately there is no quick fix for skin issues such as cellulite or dry skin, but by incorporating great products into a regular routine, healthier skin is achievable.
Thank you for checking out my latest review.
