Nip+fab recommendations?

I have to change skincare as my usual stuff is discontinued.
I've heard good things about Nip+fab but just looking at the website and don't know what to get!
Currently use a cream wash off cleanser, toner and moisturiser, all natural ingredients . Skin is on the dry side, can be a bit sensitive. Am getting wrinkly at 39 😄. Do I need a serum?
Any recommendations for wonder products please?

I got the glycolic Fix night pads extreme, the deep cleansing Fix, and the bee under eye serum stuff - love them all!

Thanks Bunty.
I was going for that cleanser but wondering if the bee sting stuff actually worked.
Might just start getting the cleanser and see how I get on.

I thought the bee sting stuff was pants and "sat" on my skin rather than being absorbed.

It's often on offer in tk max so maybe look there before a big splurge.

I love Vichy lift active stuff.

Would you tell me about those products then?
I've become very fussy as the stuff I use at the moment really suits my skin. I spent years trying lots of different types products and none of them quite right or too expensive.
So I can't do Clinique or Estee Lauder. Got on ok with some Dermalogica stuff but didn't love it.

The glycolic night pads might be a bit harsh if you have sensitive skin.
The glycolic fix cleanser is nice though and not too harsh. It's a wash off one and smells orangey/citrusy.

I use the clearasil exfoliation pads every night, then the Vichy lift active serum, then night cream.

Vichy is gentle and effective and I have combination skin.

The Caroline Hirons blogs are a good place to start for a new face care regime.

I have the Dragons Blood cleansing pads, serum and mask and also bought the glycolic fix cleanser just before Christmas.

I like all these products not as I have quite sensitive skin I could never use them everyday. I use them sparingly, the cleansing pads for a wipe over after cleansing every 2 or 3 days, the glycolic fix cleanser as a deep clean once a week.

For everyday cleansing it's got to be La Roche Posay make-up remover milk following by their soothing lotion.

Arrgh - should read 'but I have sensitive skin'.,,

I use the extreme pads daily, my skincare is as follows

- remove makeup with micellair water
- Superdrug hot cloth cleanse
- every other night L'Oréal pure clay detox mask
- wipe over with nip+fab extreme pads
- every other night Superdrug glycolic peel
- when not using glycolic peel I use a dragons blood serum and a mattifying moisturiser

Although my skincare needs may be different, I am 24 and I have combination skin and I'm very prone to breakouts

Thank you for all the advice it's really helpful.
I thought I'd cracked it and am so sad to have to start over so it's great to hear others experience.
