Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Aldi Dupe Review

Saturday, 22 September 2018

I've raved about Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Pads for months, so you can imagine my amazement when I was strolling around Aldi and found this complete dupe of one of my favourite products for a fraction of the price. The packaging uses almost identical colours and branding, I have no idea how they get away with it!
I had to pick them up and give them a go, if I could get these pads for £2.49 in Aldi instead of the up to £15 I usually pay in Boots it was definitely worth a try! With the packaging being almost identical I was hoping the product inside would be too.

When I opened the tub the first thing I noticed was the scent was a lot more chemically than the Nip + Fab version. It was quite strong but it wasn't awful, just not as pleasant as their more expensive counterparts. The pads themselves are a lot thiner than the more expensive ones too, they still have the exfoliating side and the smooth side but with the difference in thickness there isn't a massive difference in the feel of either side. 

After using these pads, instead of my usual ones, for a few weeks you can tell the difference very slightly. I've had a few more breakouts than I would usually expect to get and my skin doesn't feel quite as soft as it usually does. That being said, if I had found these ones first I would have probably been raving about how much they have changed my skin, because although they are not as effective as the more expensive Nip + Fab alternative, they definitely still work to a point. For the difference in price these are amazing for someone on a budget!

Have you used any of Aldi's Lacura range? What are your favourite products?
