So I've been using the Skin Therapy Dragons Blood Multifunctional SPF Day Lotion. I’ve got to say, I really REALLY enjoyed using this. I was looking for a new daily facial moisturiser, I like to change up my skin care so great timing for these to arrive at BR!
Ok so we’ve written a few articles about the oddly named Dragon’s Blood but I’d never tried it so I was intrigued to find out what it was all about.
For a really competitively priced product it's beautifully packed in a fancy pants clear bottle with a pump on the top - I’m a BIG fan of not sticking your fingers into skincare products and I really don’t know why brands still continue to putthem in pots, so points for the pump pack.
Now the colour of the product in the pack was really appealing it’s like a two layered light and then darker pink colour with the two colours separated in the pack, but then when you pump it out they join together.
Performance wise it did everything it said on the pump, it really hydrated my skin and left it feeling unbelievably soft. It has an SPF 15 which was an added bonus, especially for these Winter days where there's not enough sun to make me consciously think 'sunscreen'!
I’ve been using the Dragons Blood Serum as well…all I’ll say is …va va va voom!

So, Dragon's Blood. I'm not going to lie. I sort of, kind of, absolutely really wanted the serum to look like a potion made of the blood of Dragons. Alas, the Skin Therapy Dragon's Blood Sculpting Serum is just your average off-white lotiony-serum. But as that's probably the only disappointment I experienced using the product I'll probably have to let it go.
The serum comes in a blinging silver pump, it looks lovely next to the red Day Lotion, and I'm with Queenie - all skin care products should be pumpable. It should be law. I also really loved that over two months the metallic finish over the glass bottle hasn't chipped or peeled. This is a budget friendly product, but the packaging is high end.
The serum itself is more lotion than serum, to give you an idea of consistency - it doesn't drip. At all. It smells sort of fruity - a nice break from that typical clincal skin care scent. It applies and spreads over the skin beautifully, but it is a bit of a weird absorption process. After use my skin feels 'tacky' to touch for about 5 minutes. A couple of other reviewers have commented on this too. After it has all been absorbed my skin feels incredibly soft and supple.
So does it do what it says and lift, tone and define? Yeah I think so. My skin is looking pretty darn fab at the moment, and I have enjoyed using the Dragon's Blood serum - I've repurchased a second bottle, although I'm still going on my first. 8 weeks + use for $30? Bargain!
I'd recommend the Skin Therapy Dragon's Blood range to anyone, but particularly as a great introduction to 'anti-ageing' skin care. I'm 32 and the clinical / super powerful age defying products aren't quite on my radar yet, but using this range I definitely feel like I'm tackling the fine lines and general skin blah that is coming with age and being mother of two dragons.
