Skincare is one of those things that is extremely personal and very specific based on skin type and specific needs. So I love finding brands and products that offer and cater to lots of skin concerns. Recently I started using Nip+Fab, a collection from Maria Hatzistefanis that created the Rodial Beauty line.

I’ve used several products from Rodial Beauty over the years and would consider Nip+Fab the more affordable little sister of that line. The brand is described as, “Nip + Fab an innovative, results-driven beauty brand, providing targeted and effective treatments. They are world renowned for their use of cutting-edge ingredients ranging from Glycolic Acid to Dragon’s Blood and Syn®-ake.”

I’ve been using the products for about two weeks now, and there are a few that stand out and are already favorites. As with all new products I like to use them for 30-45 days to thoroughly understand how well they work for me and if I saw results. However, as I mentioned above, a few are already hits and I had immediate results. I’ll start with those and then list the others that are in the current rotation.


My skin is in LOVE. This serum gives me such incredible hydration and feels so good on my skin! It’s lightweight and provides immediate results. A few key ingredients are…

  • Hyaluronic Acid – hydrates and refines your skin’s texture
  • Dragon’s Blood (from the Croton Lechleri tree) – protects the skin from environmental aggressors by providing a protective film


Another immediate favorite from Nip+Fab! You can add the shot to your moisturizer or directly on your face for more a targeted approach. For me, I use it directly on my face and apply it in my t-zone. It blurs my pores and gives a smooth and matte finish to my skin. A few key ingredients are…

  • Soft Focus Powders – provides instant blurring and mattifying effects to the skin’s surface
  • Concentrated Syn®-Ake – aids in smoothing and softening the skin

The other products from the line that I’m trying out for the next 30 days…


These Glycolic Fix Pads are soaked in 2.8% Glycolic Acid for maximum exfoliation to re-texture and resurface the skin. They have also added Hyaluronic Acid and Blue Daisy. This product has not impressed me as much as the other products, but I will continue using it before rendering a verdict.


This moisturizer is hydrating and gives your skin a beautiful healthy appearance. It provides an anti-aging shield while helping to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles. I enjoy the way this looks and feels on my face but think it may be a little too much for my oily/combination during the day. I am going to switch things up and start using it only at night to see if that works better for me.

Have you used any of the Nip+Fab Skincare products? If so, what are your favorites and why?

Until soon…Toodles
