When you hear/read dragon blood, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? Well since I’m a big Game of Thrones fan, all I could think of is Khaleesi and the dragons. Luckily unlike the name Rodial Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel doesn’t have any real dragon’s blood in it… It is just a bright red resin that’s obtained from different species of plants(for this, it is Croton Lechleri tree).
I don’t have much experience with Rodial products, apart from Rodial Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel, the other skincare product I tried is Rodial Super Acids X-Treme Rush Peel. The rush peel also came up with the last year’s M&S Advent Calendar. I had high expectations from this product and I’m happy to say, it is not disappointing.
What does Rodial Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel promise? “A revolutionary anti-aging gel that volumises and defines facial contours by plumping sagging skin through stimulating the production of collagen to help skin appear firmer and more lifted. Dragon’s blood complex forms a unique second skin-like film around the face which effectively protects, reduces redness and firms for a smoother, plumper, more youthful looking complexion. Dragon’s Blood range, this is ideal for those with stressed or sensitive skin and who wish to achieve firmer, lifted facial contours”. All good, isn’t it? Well, I’m happy to say that it lives up to its claims. It makes the skin feel smoother and brightens up the complexion. I’ll finish the whole 15 ml tube and hopefully, my skin will appear younger.
It has creamy gel-serum like texture, which is light enough to layer under a moisturiser/serum, but also rich enough to wear alone if you have oily skin. The gel texture is really lightweight and absorbing. It gives the right amount of hydration, however, it might not be enough for dry skin. If you’re looking for hydration, I would recommend using an additional hydrating product after this.
How do I use it? You only need a tiny amount of it. You can apply it day and night, however, I opt for the night use. My morning skincare routine only involves a few steps. I gently massage it onto the cleansed skin and then just let it dry. It depends on my skin condition. If it feels well hydrated, I keep my routine simple. I just apply this gel after my regular skin cleansing routine and acid. When my skin is not at its best then I end up applying overnight treatment like the overnight mask or serum.
It gives a slight tingling effect which stops after a few minutes. If you have a really sensitive skin, it might take a while to get used to it, however, it’s all worth it!
If you like the sweet smell then this mask will make you happy. Even though I prefer the unscented skincare products, I end up loving the scent of this one. It reminds me of Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. They both have the similar smell, it just takes me back to my childhood!
It’s one of those products that I start liking from the first use and I’m afraid that might not be good for my bank account. It leaves my skin feel softer, hydrated and firmer. If you’re looking for a skincare product and the price tag is not the issue, then give this one a try. It just works!
Rodial Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel is £85 for 50 ml. It’s as expensive as Gatineau Melatogenine AOX Probiotics Advanced Rejuvenating Cream. If you are still in your late 20s or 30s then I’d say go for Rodial Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel.
Have you tried Rodial Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel? What’s your favourite anti-aging product which you know you’ll always purchase? I’d say mine is probably Advanced Night Repair.
