Nip + Fab is launching in South Africa

I do love the excitement of a new range, especially if it’s something innovative. Even though I had to miss the official launch I was thrilled to hear that Nip + Fab products will be available from Clicks soon as I’m lusting after some of their high-tech, no-nonsense products.

I’m not so interested in the gimmicky products – I’ve never been very phased with a product that makes your wrinkles magically disappear only to have them reappear when you wash your face the next day, for example. I like treatment products, and if they work in an innovative way I’ll like them even more. After browsing the Nip + Fab website, here are the products I’m excited to try:

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Pads, R265

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating WIpes
Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating WIpes

Exfoliating pads soaked in Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid and some other soothing and toning ingredients. You wipe a pad over your face after cleansing and you’re done. Could it be any smarter or easier?

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser, R235

A foaming cleanser with a light dose of Glycolic acid, Amino acids and olive oil. I like it already.

Nip + Fab Deep Cleansing Fix (not currently available in SA)

A deep cleansing cream with Sweet Almond and Tea Tree oils to cleanse skin and remove makeup, and can also be used as a 10 minute mask or left on overnight as a hydrating mask. I’m very keen to try this.

Nip + Fab CC Cream SPF30 (not currently available in SA)

High enough SPF, medium cover and radiance-enhancing. Contains Oat extract to tone and smooth and hyaluronic acid to moisturise.

At the moment I have two products to try out – Upper Arm Fix, R270, promises to tone and sculpt bingo wings and No Needle Fix serum, R365, plumps, firms and minimises fine lines. Upper Arm Fix is probably Nip + Fab’s most talked about product but I won’t lie, I’m sceptical as hell. I’ll plant it on the bathroom shelf and start testing it soon.

There are some products that have caused me to raise a brow – things like Pec Fix for men “Pec Fix is a minimising + sculpting gel with a fast acting formula to help to improve tone, texture + smoothes the appearance of pec contours” and pretty much everything that falls under the slimming category for women – creams can’t make you thinner, more muscular or magically toned if you have had saggy saddle bags for the past 5 years. The men’s range isn’t currently launching in SA though, I don’t know if it will follow later.

Nevertheless, I’m up for the challenge and I’ll start applying Nip + Fab Upper Arm Fix to my bloody bingo wings and see if my arms still wave goodbye when I wave hello by the time the tube is finished. If I’m wrong, you’ll be the first to know. The range is well priced (R235 – R365), easy to decipher and inbetween slathering on Upper Arm Fix I’ll be queueing in Clicks to get my hands on some Glycolic Fix pads when it launches this coming Monday, 9 September*.

*I know I initially said the 6th, but the PR peep and I were emailing back and forth late last night and we got it wrong. We’ve unanimously decided we should’ve switched our PCs off earlier, sorry about that.

    I normally purchase my facial nip and fab products from clicks but I see they have discontinued it.

    Is it possible to order from you?

      Hi Meevashinee,

      I don’t sell the products but I’m trying to find out whether they’ve been discontinued completely and if there’s somewhere else you can get them from.

      Hi Marise, they’re in the process of changing distributors so there will be some stock issues for the next few months – I’m hoping they get it sorted soon!

      They’re in Clicks but they’re in the process of changing distributors so stock is a little low – will hopefully be sorted within the next couple of months.

      Hi Tarryn! They used to be available at Clicks, I’m not sure if they’re back in store again again. Maybe ask them on FB or Twitter? Good luck!
