Last week I managed to grab the Nip + Fab No Needle Fix Night Cream and Glycolic Instant Fix Mask on offer in Superdrug as well as their own brand B. Hydrated Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz. For the last 7 days I have incorporated these into my routine to see if they are any good.
I have used the No Needle Fix Night Cream each night before bed and the best way I can describe it is that it has the consistency of Sudocrem. Thick but blendable. It smells a little chemically with a hint of orange but nothing that would be enough to put me off wanting to use it. I can honestly say that I noticed a difference in my skin after the first night and after 3 nights one of my coworkers commented that my skin was glowing.
The No Needle Fix Night Cream is made with retinol. According to dermatologist Carolyn Jacob, MD, retinoids assist in reducing the signs of ageing by “prompting surface skin cells to turn over and die rapidly, making way for new cell growth underneath”. While I feel it has made a difference to my skin, it does apparently take 3 – 6 months to notice real difference. Will I stick with it for that long? Perhaps, I can’t say I might not switch to another brand with retinol but I do intend to keep using retinol in my routine to see if it can help me maintain healthier skin.
If you decide you want to try the No Needle Fix Night Cream please remember that you do need to use a sunscreen on your skin daily to protect it from the sun.
I really can’t say I noticed any difference from this products use. It is supposed to help hydrate the skin for up to 12 hours but if I am honest it felt like little more than a refreshing spritz to the skin. I wouldn’t buy it again but if you were traveling somewhere hot and wanted a spritz to cool yourself down, I would say you wouldn’t go to far wrong with this as an option.
