I’m back with another skincare post focusing on Nip + Fab products. I recently tried out the Glycolic Fix line and this time I’ve been checking out the infamous Dragon’s Blood Fix line.
The Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix skincare line is the hydration line of products for the brand. Now I know that Dragon’s Blood sounds like a fake, gimmicky ingredient but it’s actually real! Dragon’s Blood is from the sap of the Croton Lechleri tree and acts as a shield for your skin. It protects your skin all while soothing irritated skin as well.
This Hydrate line also contains hyaluronic acid (in the form of sodium hyaluronate) which attracts moisture and holds it in the skin. One gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to 6 liters of water so it’s a good ingredient to have on your side if you suffer from dry skin.
I’ve been trying out the Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum and Plumping Mask. The Plumping Serum ($19.95 USD) is a lightweight serum that contains both Dragon’s Blood and hyaluronic acid along with velvet flower (enhances moisturizing and illuminates the skin) and gransil EP-9 (absorbs excess oils). I find that 1.5 pumps of the serum is great for my face and neck. It quickly absorbs into the skin and leaves the skin feeling slightly tacky but plumped up. The product is quite heavily scented but very similar to men’s skincare products/cologne. Now I really enjoy the scent but it definitely took me by surprise. I thought that the product would have been unscented.
The Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask ($14.95 USD) is an intense hydrating mask that can be used for 10 minutes or as an overnight mask. In addition to the Dragon’s Blood and hyaluronic acid, there is salicylic acid (exfoliation), glycerin (makes sure that water is in the outer layer of skin to keep it moisturized), and TEGO cosmo C 250 (brightens skin and helps fade dark spots). I find that I like using the mask in a thin layer overnight the most. My skin feels hydrated and plump in the morning after I use it. I use it for 10 minutes when my skin needs an instant boost in the morning or at night before bed.
Overall, I am very happy with the results of these two Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Skincare products. They didn’t break out my skin and hydrated my skin very well.
til next time…
