What I think
Nip + Fab Dragons Blood Fix Plumping Mask comes in an easy to use opaque squeeze tube packaging. This makes very travel friendly. The lid screws in tightly preventing any unexpected leakage. The tube is pale orange with black and white accents. Compared to Bee Sting mask, I find this color combination quite muted. The main factor that pulled me towards buying this mask was the Dragon blood content. I honestly saw the words Dragon Blood & Plumping and picked it up. It says dragon blood forms a layer over the skin protecting it from environmental aggressors probably pollution, UV rays etc. The mask is translucent and has a thick gel consistency that spreads on smoothly on the skin. The gel is high on moisture content so it takes up the full 10 minutes as suggested to dry up completely. Initially while applying, the mask feels very cool on the skin. I did not face any tingling sensation with this mask. Once the 10 minutes are up, wash it off with warm water. The mask is quite slippery when it comes in contact with water. Warm water reduces the slimy feel and induces some friction which allows it to be rinsed off effectively. Now coming to how well this mask works, it is quite good but not as good as the Bee Sting Fix mask. May be I am biased since I love the Bee Sting Fix mask but I feel I get more out of the Bee Sting Fix mask as compared to the Dragon’s Blood Fix mask. This mask hydrates, plumps and firms the skin well but not as good as the Bee Sting one. It brightens the face well. While the Bee Sting Fix mask works on dry and flaky skin, this one doesn’t. Since it doesn’t do much for dry skin, if you use it, moisturization post use is a must. I love to use this in summers when my skin is more combination oily. I do not use this during the colder weather when my skin is extremely dry. The fragrance is slightly intense and artificial so many won’t like it but it is not a cause of concern for me. With bi weekly application, this tube lasted for about 10 weeks. This mask did not cause any breakouts on my skin in either of the weathers. I think this mask is well suited for combination & oily skin types.
Overall I like Nip + Fab Dragons Blood Fix Plumping Mask but do not love it. Bee Sting Fix is a much better option in comparison.
- Easy to use squeeze tube
- Travel friendly
- Thick gel texture
- Plumps hydrates and firms skin
- Brightens up complexion
- Non acnegenic
- Artificial fragrance
- Doesn’t work on flaky skin
This is a good mask but I won’t recommend it since there is a much superior alternative to it. Those with combination & oily skin could try this out though.
