Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Plumping Serum Review

This post is not sponsored. I received this product free for review purposes. All opinions are honest and my own.

I've been big into skincare since my 20's. I've tried a lot of products and most of the time I'm happy if they provide some hydration and don't cause my skin to breakout or react. It's rare that I see major changes happen, especially very quickly. This has been my experience with the Nip & Fab line. I have seen some of the fastest changes (for the better) to my skin of any products that I've used.

For reference, my skin-type is combo/oily, dehydrated, acne prone, reactive, and aging.

I started out using Nip & Fab's Glycolic line (full review linked here). After that review, I continued using their Glycolic Cleansing Fix and Dragon's Blood Fix Cleansing pads and then I added in their Dragon's Blood Fix Plumping Serum for this review.

Dragon's Blood Fix Plumping Serum 50ml/ £19.95
Lightweight serum delivers an instant shot of moisture to dehydrated skin + leaves skin looking plumper and with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles reduced.

  • Hyaluronic acid hydrates for plumper looking skin
  • Velvet Flower enhances moisturization
  • Dragon's Blood comforts and restores through skin hydration

What is Dragon's Blood!?
Providing the ultimate hydration fix for the skin, our unique dragon’s blood fix range contains sap from the Croton Lechleri tree which acts as a ‘second-skin’ protective shield, helping to protect and soothe the skin and is ideal for those suffering from skin sensitivity and redness.With added hyaluronic acid, the holy grail ingredient for skin hydration, this provides intense moisture to dehydrated skin, leaving it feeling comforted and with a healthy hydrated plump glow.
Suitable for all skin types.

The photos below show my journey since using this brand. From where my skin was right before I started with the Glycolic line + Dragon's Blood Cleansing Pads and my results 2 weeks after. Then showing my skin right before I added in the Plumping serum and my results 2 weeks after.

Note that I only used Nip + Fab's glycolic cleanser, cleansing pads, as well as this Plumping Serum in the morning as I use Retin-A at night (I've been using 0.04% Retin-A for years).

The results are remarkable. I've experienced great changes in my skin since starting this brand. All of my active acne is gone, most of my acne scars are gone. My skin looks firmer and younger overall.

Their various lines within the brand seem to work well together, as I'm using products from their glycolic line as well as their Dragon's Blood line with great results.

I'm really impressed and the fact that these products are affordable is just amazing. I've used some very expensive products and not had results like this. 

Nip + Fab's line is extensive. They have something for every skin type. After my experience, I definitely want to try more from this line!
