With everything going on right now, it’s no surprise my skin is being put through the ringer. After I returned from Hawaii, my skin suffered a crazy breakout. Add a busy life and stress into the mix and you’ve got yourself a full on skin emergency. Thankfully, I’m reaching the tail end of it so I’m ready to dip my toe into a few new skincare products. Nip + Fab very sweetly sent some of their products to me, so I wanted to share them in a haul prior to cracking them open.
Nip + Fab Skincare
Nip + Fab is a skincare brand marketed as premium skincare with everyday prices. We all know how expensive quality skincare can get, but it isn’t feasible for everyone’s budget. Even people who can splurge on skincare may not always want to. For me personally, it takes a lot of research and weeks to months of debating before finally deciding to splurge on a skincare product I’ve added to my wishlist. With Nip + Fab, you can find targeted skincare products for an affordable price and still rest easy knowing they are made with innovative smoothing, boosting, and firming ingredients. Below are just 3 of the products from the brand, so be sure to check out their website to see the full collection.
Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask
The product I’m most excited to try is their Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask. I’m always interested in trying out new masks, and the packaging for this one caught my interest. Although the packaging is a gorgeous orange shade, the mask itself is clear. It’s a hydrating gel mask designed to plump the look of wrinkles and refine the skin’s appearance. My skin is oily so I don’t shop for moisturizing products very often, but I do look for anything targeted wrinkles and anti-aging since I’m in my late twenties. Preventative skincare is very important! The mask retails for $15 and comes with 1.7 fl oz of product, which is pretty affordable in comparison to other face masks.
Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum
Speaking of anti-aging, the second product I received is a serum within the same Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping line. The plumping serum retails for $20 and provides a shot of hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The packaging immediately reminded me of Murad’s Rapid Collagen Infusion, so I’m hoping this will end up being a cheaper alternative for the anti-aging product. Even though I own Murad’s product, the price point of $84 is enough to keep me open for other options. Both Dragon’s Blood products contain hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and dragon’s blood to comfort and restore the skin. To my knowledge, I haven’t used any skincare products before with the two ingredients before so I’d like to test them out for a few weeks and see how my skin reacts.
Glycolic Scrub Fix
The last item is a scrub, which is the one area in my skincare routine where I tend to fall short. Nip and Fab’s Glycolic Scrub Fix is a 3-in-1 micro exfoliant with glycolic and salicylic acids to refine, brighten, and renew skin. The scrub retails for $10 and comes with 2.5 fl oz, so overall the brand is on the affordable side of skincare. I always used to purchase skincare products with salicylic acid back when I would break out more regularly, so I don’t doubt that this scrub will work with my skin.
I always get a little nervous and excited when I try new skincare products because you never really know how your skin will react. If there’s a product you’re most interested in, let me know and I’ll try it out first! Otherwise, I plan on incorporating each product into my existing skincare routine one at a time to see how they change my skin, starting with the face mask. Once I’ve used each product for a good amount of time, I’ll do a follow-up post on the results!
