Nip + Fab Haul Update
It’s been quite a while since I posted my big Nip + Fab Haul. In case you missed that, you might want to check it out first before continuing with this post. I like to give everything a long trial period before posting any reviews, but I really take my time when it comes to skincare because that typically takes longer to make a difference anyway. I’ve been using these products as much as possible and although there are a few that weren’t as impressive, I’m happy to report that I have found a few new favorites.
~Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum~ This serum is almost like a gel-lotion mix as far as consistency. I really like the pump and that it’s plastic packaging. Some of these products were glass as I was always scared I’d drop it. I did notice this plump my skin up the more often I used it and I definitely think I'll reach for it more as we get into the cooler, dry more months.
~Kale Fix Clay Mask~ Unfortunately, this one was a dud for me. I didn’t see it making any difference on my skin when I used it and I didn’t feel that much more refreshed after removing it. The smell wasn’t too bad, it’s just not the product for my oily acne-prone skin. I found this to be more nourishing, which might be better for someone with dry skin.
~Bee Sting Fix Eye Cream~ I can’t even describe to you how nervous I was to try this product. The fact that it has real bee venom in it and that I was going to be putting this under my eyes had me freaking out for so long. I didn’t read any reviews to people having any allergic reactions to it and although I have no idea whether or not I’m allergic to bees, I’d rather just live my life not having to find out the hard way on that. But I eventually built up the courage to try it and I was really impressed. It’s more like a balm than a creamy lotion, but it feels nice under the eyes. However, I can’t say that I’ve seen any noticeable firming effects from it. If you don’t need much firming action in that area, this is definitely one that I would recommend.
~Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads~ I already mentioned in my haul post how much I love these and it’s still true. I use them every night and love the results I’m getting. Between this and my Neutrogena retinol lotion, I’ve absolutely seen a difference in the texture on my cheeks. These are the one product from this haul that I will always continue to repurchase as soon as I run out.
~Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Shot~ I have used this on it’s own and although it’s nice in that way, I typically use it in combination with the Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum. I put a little bit of both in my hands and apply it on my skin twice a week after my favorite mask and it really helps to replenish my skin after such an intense treatment. Both of the Dragon’s Blood products smell very refreshing too!
~Bee Sting Fix Repairing Shot~ This was a much different consistency than the Dragon’s Blood shot, but I actually like this one more. The Dragon’s Blood shot was more thick, which is great if you need a lot of moisturization. This one is more thin, almost like an oil, but focuses more on plumping and firming the skin.
~Bust Fix Lotion~ I wasn’t really sure how this one was going to work because it’s targeted for the skin around the chest. I don’t have much going on in that area, so I didn’t think I’d see any results. It did feel nice and moisturizing, I just don’t think it’s for me because that’s not one of my problem areas. So unfortunately I can’t say much about whether this one worked or not other than that it felt nice, just as any lotion would.
~Bust Fix Night Lotion~ I had the same concerns about this one too, but I decided to give it a try anyway. It was definitely a thicker lotion and I didn’t really notice any smell to it. It absorbed pretty quickly and although I did like the way it felt, I don’t think this is something I can see myself using. Not only because it’s just not the right type of product for my body type to really make a difference, but also because I didn’t want to stop and grab another lotion rather than just using my normal body lotion in that area.
~Cellulite Fix Gel~ This definitely is a gel type of product because it comes out clear. I didn’t notice any scent to this one and thankfully, I found it to absorb pretty quickly in the skin. It didn’t leave any sticky texture behind, but this is another one that I just don’t think is for me. Aside from not wanting to reach for yet another separate product while I’m applying lotion, I don’t exactly have the body that needs this kind of gel. I’m still young and my body is pretty petite, so I don’t have any visible cellulite to notice this making a difference.
~Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix~ This stuff is very interesting and I’m not exactly sure whether it’s a true recommendable product or not. It can work beautifully and make the skin look as perfect as Barbie, but it doesn’t always work well with every single product. It’s very sticky when you first apply it and takes a few minutes to dry down. Once it dries down, though, it is pretty comfortable. I’ve used this with certain foundations and it looked stunning while keeping my makeup locked in place for hours, and then I’ve had it literally peel off in patches when trying to blend in other foundations. If you’re willing to work with it and find it’s perfect match, then I’d recommend it. But if you’re looking for something to make your skin look perfect with every foundation every time, this isn’t what you need.
~Rodial Liquid Liner~ If you’ve tried a black liquid felt tip eyeliner before, then this one isn’t going to be any different. It’s pretty average compared to all the other products I’ve tried like this. It is super precise, but I was actually a little worried at first because it can look a little shiny. I layered a black eyeshadow on top to soften the line, which worked beautifully, and then the liner stayed all day.
There were quite a few hits and misses with these products, but I think that’s to be expected because there’s not one brand that’s going to get it right 100% of the time. Overall, I’d say I was really impressed that these products actually did what they said they would do. I’m still interested in this brand and plan on trying more from them in the future.
