Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot ($24.95) is one of Nip + Fab’s new hydrate skincare products that recently launched. Don’t carried away too much, this doesn’t contain actual dragon’s blood although that would be kind of cool if it did! Dragon’s Blood is a sap found in Croton Lechleri trees which acts to protect and heal skin as well as protect it from outside aggressions. The serum also contains a Hyaluronic Solution that acts to hydrate and plump skin while allowing it to retain moisture.
Let’s take a look!
Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot Rcomes housed in a 1.01 oz bottle with a dropper for easy application. This formula was created for use on its own on targeted areas or can be combined with your moisturizer.
One of the main issues with the formula would be the fragrance. I typically don’t mind fragrance in my skincare but this is quite strong and could potentially cause issues with sensitive users. It has a strong herbal perfume-y fragrance that’s pleasant enough to my nose but could potentially cause an issue for those with sensitive skin or even fragrance allergies because it does tickle the nose in a way that makes you feel like a sneeze is about to come on.
For whatever reason it pleases me to no end that the serum is a bright shade of corally peach. At a glance, I thought this was an oil of some sort but the texture reminds me of ampoule or a serum. It has a slightly sticky gel-like consistency that absorbs easily enough when applied directly to skin be warned though this isn’t my personal preferred method of application. They recommend one or two drops as a target treatment of sorts which means if you have drier areas on your cheeks or perhaps your forehead you can gently pat this on. Applying it all over your face results in a very sticky, tacky finish on skin which is why I personally dislike applying it directly to my skin. When used in conjunction with a moisturizer I find the consistency is much, much easier to work with as your moisturizer is the base for the gel. I choose to use it with a few different moisturizers and it worked well with each one. It didn’t thin out or morph the consistency of the moisturizer and a little seems to go a very long way. I purposely tried it with lighter moisturizers because I wanted to see how much moisture it actually lent to the product but I also tried it with thicker, richer moisturizer as well such as Belif Moisturizing Bomb. I like it best for adding a boost to lighter moisturizers as I see the benefits best with these formulas. I don’t really see the difference when using it with a richer more hydrating moisturizer. I think aging skin will find this benefits them the most as the formula tightens skin as well as adds moisture.
It’s an odd formula because I wouldn’t say it helped to retain moisture but it did add moisture to my skin as well as tightened my skin and gave it a plusher look. If you have finer lines you’ll likely notice they’ll appear smoother when using this. For me, it added a nice boost of moisture to my skin.
Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot is an interesting add on to your regular moisturizer. I think aging skin might see the most benefits from this formula but for those looking for a bit more added moisture, this might just do the trick!
Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot will be available soon at drugstores and mass retailers.
