NIP + FAB Multi-Fix Oil
Hold on, rewind there a minute, did someone say stretch marks ?! OK, let's get straight to the bathroom to test it right now !! I don't know any mums who haven't whinged about their stretch marks at some point so if this product really does deliver what it says on the bottle, there will be a lot of smiling women all over the world !
I decided to use the oil pretty much all over my body, to see what it felt like on different types of skin. On my arms and legs, which have been dry and flaky in patches since our summer holiday in Turkey, the skin felt lovely - soft, supple and perfectly moisturised - and I somehow had the impression that this effect was going deeper than just the very top layer of skin, as with my normal moisturisers. I also rubbed some over the skin on my chest and belly and, although they obviously didn't suddenly miraculously disappear, I think the pale stretch marks on my mummy-tummy did seem to blend into the rest of the skin and appear less visible. The skin felt softer, more supple and slightly plumped up so this is possibly what makes the stretch marks and scars stand out less. I was certainly very impressed with the immediate effect and will continue to try it over a period of time to see what the long-term, lasting effects will be. For a luxurious, skin-nourishing treat, you can also pour some of the oil into a lovely warm bath and relax while it soaks into your skin and does its magic, leaving you with baby soft and perfectly hydrated skin all over your body when you climb out of the water.
NIP + FAB offers a range of eleven targeted treatments for women's (and men's apparently ! ) problem areas, from eye brightening and skin plumping to cellulite and nipple smoothing (yes really ! Maybe that's why it's called NIP + FAB !). I love the way the products combine natural ingredients and high-tech science to create products that leave you feeling thoroughly pampered. I'm now keen to find out if the other products in the range are as good as the multi-fix oil - and I suspect they may well be !
