I still don’t know if I’m a morning or an evening person -I probably am a little bit of both-, but I know one thing: my evening skincare routine is my little daily treat whilst my morning skincare routine resembles more a chore. As a result, any item with the word ‘night’ in it immediately sounds more appealing to me, silly but true. It is actually one of the reasons why I fell for the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fox Night Pads Extreme.

With glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids, but also a little bit of hyaluronic acid to make it all more bearable for the skin, the Nip+Fab Night Pads Extreme definitely make one pad go a long way, without damaging the skin, sensitive or not. In fact, the hyaluronic acid leaves a thin layer of hydration on top of the skin, so much so that I don’t feel the need to immediately reach for my hydrating mist, I can wait a few minutes and my face doesn’t feel tighter than my usual freshly cleansed skin. As for the redness, it is here -as always with acids- but it is not alarming. I also appreciate the brand’s recommendation to only use the pads once a week when having a sensitive skin -against the 2 to 3 times of week for normal skins-, especially since it is a detail which most brands, quite dangerously, forget to mention. The pads’ citrusy scent can seem a little bit too artificial sometimes, but I got used to it, and it remains more pleasant than the clinical scent which usually goes hand in hand with chemical exfoliants. The same goes for the packaging: the lid is a little bit too clumsy for my liking but, once again, I have seen worse in more expensive exfoliants.

 The real surprise, though, happens overnight. Because glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids are all merge into one exfoliating pad, the next morning truly gives the impression that all skin issues have been tackled overnight, whether it is dullness, skin texture, clogged pores, recent scars, sun damages or overall uneven skin tone. Finally, the ‘I just got a facial’ look gets even better as the pads also strenghten the properties of the following routine: the hydrating ingredients will penetrate deeper into the skin whilst the nourishing ones will truly comfort and soothe its delicate areas.


  • These are on my list of items to try, simply because I need salicylic acid in my routine to prevent breakouts. The original ones were nice, but not leaving a strong impression, so I hope the extreme ones will perform better.

    • I haven’t tried the originals, but according to Shireen ( see her comment above), these ones are much better, all I can say is that I’m really impressed with these ones, I think they will belong to those products I keep repurchasing over and over again 🙂

  • The evening is where I tend to focus on skincare too. It’s like a treat and helps you relax x

  • I couldn’t agree more with you about these pads! They are so much better than the original and I so desperately need to repurchase this!

    • I’m so glad you agree! I haven’t tried the originals, but these ones are really impressive, I’m usually really picky when it comes to exfoliating pads, just because I want the right balance between gentle and effective and these ones are perfect for that!

  • Sounds like I need these! Are they sold in Boots? xx


    • Yes, they are, that’s how I bought them actually, but I know they are on Asos too!

  • They sound like they work wonders. Will definitely have to give them a try.

    • I highly recommend you do so indeed, I’m very rarely impressed with exfoliating pads, but these ones definitely surprised me!

  • Wow!!!!!!! I’m impressed :O

    • I’m so impressed with them, especially considering how affordable they are! I honestly think these are the best exfoliating pads I have tried so far, and I have tried quite a lot of them!

  • I really like these pads, they’re better then the original ones, more effective while still being quite gentle in my opinion. x

    • I’m glad you love them as well, yes pads are always more practical when it comes to travelling!

  • Looks like a good product to me!



  • Think I need to try these out!

  • Wow why am I hearing about it for the first time?!! I need to get this baby asap!


    • Yes, I haven’t seen a lot of reviews about them either, but they definitely deserve more love in the beauty community! Thank you for reading 🙂

  • I love these so much too. I have repurchased and will be opening up a new tub of this very soon. They are so effective, so quickly xxx

  • I was looking into buying this about two days ago as I heard that Kylie Jenner loves it as well and that it’s really good. I like the fact that it didn’t make your skin dry right away because of the hylauronic acid!

    • Oh, I didn’t know that! Yes, it is the weirdest thing, but it gives a thin layer of moisture to the skin, leaving the skin soft and plump!

    I absolutely love these pads! Need to repurchase them! x
