Nip+Fab Dry Leg Fix
Advantages: Softens & Smoothes
Disadvantages: Smell's nasty, Expensive, Other cheaper brands do the same job!
Before reading about this product in a magazine I have never heard of this brand and have never seen this product in any shops before. Nip+Fab have a clinically tested range for the face and body which can help many problems areas such as dry skin and cellulite. Although their products are quite pricey they are cheaper than other well known brands out there and work just as well. Some of their products include Facial Scrubs, Cleaners and Moisturisers and for the body products called Bust Fix, Shower Fix, Cellulite Fix and more. A range of their products can be found in boots stores and on their website and you can find further information and buy their products online from www.nipandfab.com.
***DRY LEG FIX***
With the harsh cold weather we've been having I've been living in jeans or leggings and going from cold weather to warm heat inside tends to dry out my skin slightly, and there's nothing worse than going out for a Christmas or New Year's party with dry looking legs. I saw this product advertised in more magazine a few weeks ago and decided to give it a go as it sounded fantastic and sounded as though it would work really well. This instant leg smoother is an intensive balm that immediately smoothes, dry, flaky skin and nourishes leaving legs super silky smooth. The balm contains the following ingredients which help to nourish and moisturise.
* Aquaxyl - This improves the water reserves in the skin and limits water loss which helps to improve the surface of the skin for 24hr moisture and shine.
* Shea Butter - Restores Moisture and Elasticity
* Glycerin - Softens and Hydrates.
The product itself comes in a green and white box and stands out from other products on the shelf. In the box is a white and green coloured tube which is the leg balm. It gives you a list of the ingredients on the back of the box in both French and English. I personally think the box is quite bulky compared to the tube you get in the box and I also think the box is a bit of a waste and there's no need for it, how-ever I'm guessing this product comes in this packaging as it is still pricey to buy.
You can purchase this from their website (www.nipandfab.com) for £9.95, where you can also purchase their other products and read more information about the company and their other products. I purchased this from my local boots and it cost me £9.95. The product comes in just the one sized tube which is 100ml.
***USING THE PRODUCT***
Simply massage the product onto the legs, focusing on dry areas. I used the product when I came out of the bath for better results as my skin can sometimes feel slightly tight and dry. When you squeeze the tube the cream looks like thick and slightly lumpy, how-ever when you massage the product into your legs it spreads well and you only need to use a little of the product and it goes a long way. The cream absorbed into my skin very quickly without leaving it feeling greasy. The product does smell, but it's hard to describe what it actually smells like. At first I thought it smelt of citrus slightly, and then I changed my mind as it seems to smell of something else with it. I know that I don't particularly like the smell and I personally think it smells awful and smells a bit like toilet cleaner or one of those cheap air freshener's you put in the toilet!!
The product left my legs feeling very smooth and soft and definitely sorted out the dry feeling my legs had just after I got out of the bath. I don't feel as though this made a huge difference compared to the Nivea Firming & Moisturising lotion that I normally use. My skin didn't feel that much softer to when I use the Nivea lotion and the Nivea lotion smells a lot nicer than this one. I don't have a huge problem of dry skin on my legs and I only notice it when I feel my legs, maybe that's why I didn't notice a huge difference.
I don't feel as though this product is much different to cheaper brands that are available to buy. This balm smell's pretty nasty and is expensive for the small tube you get and the extra packaging is just a waste. Maybe if you suffer from quite dry legs the results may be better as to when I used this product. If I run out of Nivea lotion then I'll use the Leg Balm but my top choice is still Nivea lotion and I won't replace it with this balm. I personally wouldn't recommend anyone to try it as I think it's too expensive and other cheaper brands do exactly the same job and smell nicer too!
