Do you know what Dragon’s Blood is? Well I didn’t until recently. Skin Physics explains Dragon Blood as, “The hero ingredient in the Dragon Blood range is the rich red sap of the Croton Lecheri Tree which is found in the Amazon rainforest. It’s called Dragon’s Blood because when the bark is cut the sap oozes red.” But is Dragon’s Blood any bloody good? See what I did there?
Firstly the packaging is a bit cheap and plasticy but the pump is great. Moving on, the cleanser itself is amazing! Its smells fruity which would be the apple in the cleanser, personally I really liked the smell. I used this nightly to remove my makeup and I found it very effective at removing all the last remnants of makeup. I use about 2 pumps which is enough, but Bae uses 4 to 5 (again being wasteful). Both of us are absolutely loving this cleanser, especially Bae who is particularly fussy with cleansers. Repurchase: YES
I was quite shocked with the price especially since this product is sold at Priceline but after using it I understand why its costs so much. I used this every morning and night before moisturiser and there was a slight tingle if I had done an exfoliation or mask beforehand. When first applied your skin can look a little oily but it absorbs and dries quickly and works fine under makeup. Repurchase: YES
Again this price tag shocked me, but its definitely worth it. I found this tingled every time I used this and my skin is definitely not sensitive. When looking at the ingredients I realised it contained Retinol, so if its your first time using Retinol start using this every second night. If you have sensitive skin this might be too much for you, see if you can get a trial. For me the tingle didn’t last long. When I first applied this, like the Sculpting Gel my skin looked a bit oily but it absorbs quickly. The following morning my skin looks brighter and healthier. Repurchase: YES
Overall I really enjoyed this whole range, which I was quite surprised. By using all the products together I found my skin looked instantly brighter after the first day I used this. Then it died off a bit, meaning nothing special. But after 2 weeks I noticed a positive change. My skin looked brighter and more even. Even though I found my skin more even it didn’t reduce my pigmentation and didn’t help with acne or blemishes. However this range is focused on anti-aging which I think it does accomplish that objective.
Its hard to tell in the photos if there was an improvement in my skin but I should mention I had a breakout on my chin from eating too much chocolate over Easter and hormonal breakouts… I did find the breakouts healed a lot quicker and there wasn’t as much scarring.
I didn’t try the Deep Wrinkle Filler as I don’t have deep wrinkles, but I found by applying the left over Sculpting Gel and Night Cream to my eye area, my eye area looked more even. I think this range is great for someone around my age (25) or older wanting to progress into anti-aging skincare. If you’re more concerned about anti-aging I think the Deep Wrinkle Filler is a must.
