Hello, lovely people, I recently went a bit crazy in Boots purchasing some new skincare items for me to try out, one of these happened to be Nip + Fab’s Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask which I’ve had my eye on for a while now. The 50ml retails for just under the £8 mark and comes in this cute little peachy tube which sits nicely on my shelf. I’ve only ever tried Nip + Fab’s Body Butters so I was curious to try out their skincare products which are always getting mentioned in the videos of Beauty Vloggers online.
The mask claims to plump the look of wrinkles, refine the skin’s appearance for a brighter and more youthful looking complexion with the help from key ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid which hydrates the skin making it look plumper, Amino Acids which brighten the skin and the obvious one Dragon’s Blood (the sap from a Croton Lechleri tree) which comforts and restores the skin through hydration. The overall aim of the product is to drench the skin in moisture and reduce redness.
Apply a thick layer to a clean face + neck, leave for 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water. The mask can be used as an intensive overnight mask, apply to clean skin and rinse away in the morning.
I was actually quite surprised that I liked this product, I felt like I wouldn’t see any difference considering I do not have wrinkles, but I was very wrong. I find the lightweight gel consistency of this product to be really soothing on the skin, it does apply quite wet but once you let it skin it dries nicely on the skin. There is quite a strong smell (a bit like men’s aftershave) but once it has sunk into the skin it is not noticeable. I’ve only used this as an overnight mask and it is extremely hydrating, my skin does look plumper and brighter in the morning and I know that it made a difference because even my boyfriend commented on my skin. I don’t really suffer from dehydrated skin, apart from the areas around dried up spots on my face but I can see a clear difference in the way my skin feels and looks.
I would definitely repurchase this as it’s fairly inexpensive and if you use it once or twice a week this product would last you a wee while. I can’t wait to get my hands on more products from the range and try out the other ranges they have to offer.
Have you tried anything from Nip + Fab’s Dragon’s Blood range? What were your opinions? Let me know in the comments.
