NIP + FAB Kale Fix Range

NIP + FAB Kale Fix Range
NIP + FAB Kale Fix Range

NIP + FAB is a brand which is constantly being raved about, I have seen lots of great feedback about their products online and even Kylie Jenner and Millie Mackintosh are known to be fans! Until now I have only tried the self tan gel from NIP + FAB which I absolutely loved. I have wanted to try more from NIP + FAB for a while so when I was offered the chance to review the new Kale Fix range I jumped at the chance.

Over the last couple of years kale seems to be popping up everywhere – it has definitely become one of the trendiest vegetables and it is clear why. There are so many benefits to this superfood – it is full of essential vitamins A, C and K, iron, potassium, it is low in calories, has zero fat and lots of protein.

What I wasn’t aware of is that not only is kale good for your insides it also has some great benefits for your skin too. Vitamin A helps repair the tissues under your skin, Vitamin K can get rid of dark circles under your eyes and Vitamin C helps prevent damage caused by the sun and premature aging of the skin. Kale has all three of these packed into it!

It is now easy to see why some beauty brands are starting to incorporate Kale into their products when there are so many benefits. NIP + FAB are the latest to get involved and have put together a Kale Fix range which will be released in October. The range includes a Kale Fix Moisturiser, a Kale Fix Clay Mask and Kale Fix Makeup Removing Pads. The main ingredient is of course kale but what I really like about this range it that it also includes other natural ingredients as well like watercress, almond oil, aloe vera and shea butter.

The Kale Fix range claims to protect against free radical damage as well as soften and hydrate dry skin with its gentle natural ingredients. This to me suggests it will great for sensitive skin and as I have quite sensitive skin I couldn’t wait to try it out. I have been using these products as part of my skin care routine for a couple of weeks now and I can’t wait to share my thoughts!  The first thing I have to say is how amazing each of these products smell. It reminded me slightly of cucumber- they are all so refreshing.
NIP + FAB Kale Fix moisturiser
 
Kale Fix Moisturiser £19.95* - This is a moisturiser which can be used daily to help soften and comfort dry skin. It contains kale, almond oil, aloe vera and shea butter. I absolutely love all these ingredients, they are all natural and moisturise the skin well. I often buy products with shea butter in, it’s one of my favourite ingredients in a moisturiser as it makes my skin so soft. Although I don’t tend to suffer with extremely dry skin I do experience it in some areas such as around my nose and forehead, so this moisturiser is really useful. I have been applying it after removing my makeup at night and it makes my skin feel so soft and soothed. 
 
Kale Fix Clay Mask £12.95* - I have tried out quite a lot of different face masks and until now my favourite was The Body Shop Seaweed Clay Mask. I already know I love clay face masks so I was interested to see what a clay face mask with kale was going to be like! As I have quite sensitive skin I find some face masks dry my skin or leave it slightly red and sting a bit when it’s on. I was really impressed to discover that this kale face mask did none of these things. NIP + FAB state this face mask “works to draw away impurities without drying the skin. The addition of an advanced moisture complex helps to restore the skin’s natural barrier function to help regulate water loss to increase hydration for the skin to leave it feeling touchably soft with a fresh glow”. In my opinion it does its job well! £12.95 might seem a lot of a product of this size but a little definitely goes a long way so I think this will last awhile. It also contains witch hazel which I know helps fight ache and removes excess oil so it is perfect for my oily/combination skin.
 
NIP + FAB Kale Fix makeup remover pads
 
Kale Fix Make-up Removing Pads £12.95* - Out of the three products in the Kale Fix range this is the one I was slightly skeptical about. This is because I struggle to find any makeup removers that don’t sting my eyes as they are quite sensitive.  NIP + FAB say they are gentle enough to use around the eyes so I was interested to see if this was true. I have to say I was quite impressed, I have used them to remove my makeup a few times and I don’t find it stings my eyes. If you get it into the eye it sting slightly but it’s fine around the area which is better than others I have tried. As well as removing makeup these pads also moisturise the skin – they contain kale and watercress extracts so are full of goodness and my skin definitely felt soft after using them.
 
Over all I am really impressed with the products in NIP + FAB’s Kale Fix Range. I love that they all contain natural ingredients and are kind to sensitive skin – my skin feels very soft after using each one. My favourite is definitely the face mask which I know I will be using for a long time.
 
If you are interested in this range from NIP + FAB it will be available to purchase from October. You can sign up to the waiting list here to be the first to get your hands on them. You can also buy the full range as bundle for £35 which is an absolute bargain if you are interested in trying them all.
 
Does this sound like something you would use? What are your favourite NIP + FAB products?
