All about hydration with Rodial Skincare

I love getting products from Rodial Skincare . This time I received 3 products that all do something similar….hydrate.

RodialDragonsBloodMoisturizers

  • Bee Venom body serum to revitalize & firm
  • Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturiser SPF 15 to hydrate & tone
  • Dragon’s Blood XXL lip plumper to hydrate & tone

 

Bee Venom body serum

Rodial Bee Venom Serum

You use this day and night to help nourish and life the appearance of the skin with a retinol & bee venom milittin peptide. Its a light weight serum and absorbs quickly into the skin. This serum is enriches with highly concentrated anti-aging retinol to improve the look and feel of skin texture.

The melittin peptide helps to plump & firm the skin for a more youthful appearance.

I enjoy the scent of this is has a light aroma of honey & roses. Almost feels like you are in a field of flowers. It was moisturizing and light weight. It was on the thin side, since it is a serum. I didn’t see any results using it. For the price , I don’t think this is something I would see myself adding to my routine any time soon.

Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Mosturiser SPF 15

RodialMoisturizer

This is a multi-function day cream to plump & firm appearance of the skin while also brightening & evening skin tone.

  • Dragon’s blood comfort & restores through skin hydration
  • hyaluronic acid provides long last hydration
  • Chromabright evens the look of skin tone & illuminates
  • Vitamin B3 helps brighten the skin

I really enjoyed using this moisturizer. Its lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. It leaves my skin hydrated, soft ,radiant, & healthy looking. It smells amazing. I can’t put my finger on it its smells like some kind of tropical plant. I put make up on top with no problem… plus it has SPF15!

Dragon’s Blood XXL lip plumper

Nourish & boosts lips volume instantly. It has a soft peach flavor & scent. Hydrating vitamin E & baobob oil that leave lip shiny not sticky, leaving lips look full & plump.

  • Plumping complex smooths lips & gives visibly instant & long term plumping results
  • Chili extract provides a tingling & plumping sensation
  • Dragon’s Blood comforts & restores though skin hydration.

I tried this one right away…. like right after I opened the box and saw which products I received. haha  It has a click bottom to get the product out. Press a handful of times to get it going ( at least 10)

Rodial Dragon's Blood Lip Plumper

I applied it on my lips and started to feel a slight warming sensation. Im guessing this is the chili extract. If you are looking for super plump lips this isn’t for you. If you want more natural fuller, healthy looking lips, this is perfect.  First I noticed the nice shine on my lips. It was just enough and not sticky at all.  Next the color … they were more pink and healthy looking. I did notice a little more fullness but not much. Plus my lips were really hydrated. So far I’m really liking this. It’s easy to toss in your purse and results are instant. Be careful not to swallow too much… a couple of times I felt it in my throat. oops . It wasn’t bothersome for me but did notice  it.

 

Overall all of these products are great. They were all hydrating.  It’s a close tie between the plumper & moisturizer of which I liked the most. I liked the bee venom body serum but for the price tag I feel it wasn’t a must have . My skin looked and felt great after using them. Have you tried any of these products before? What did you think?

 

I received these product for free for review. All opinions are my own.

New Skincare Nip+Fab

Nip + Fab hooked me up with some goodies to try. I have been really enjoying their line of products.

Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Shot $24.95

nip + fab hyaluronic shot

 

This intense moisture concentrate works to deeply hydrate thirsty and dry skin for a moisture locked and plumper finish. Dragons Blood is a sap found in the Croton Lechleri tree in the Amazon, it works to protect and heal the skin from all outside aggressions.

dragons blood: preventing environmental damage to the skin and motivating skin cell regeneration, as well as inhibiting inflammation and reducing redness.
hyaluronic acid:
maintain skin plumpness and it’s super-hydrating to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and soften and smooth skin for a radiant and younger-looking complexion.

LOVE this serum. I put it on when I get out of the shower every morning. Then apply my moisturizer and make up. I liked how it made my skin look healthy & plump. Its lightweight and absorbs nicely & quickly into the skin. My skin just looked really good.

You can use this day or night. You can use by itself or mix into your moisturizer. It’s up to you.  All you need is 2 drops. I liked that the applicator was a bit different too. Instead of a dropper where you squeeze to get the liquid, you press the button on the top. I guess sort of like a shot. I highly recommend this serum.

Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing pads $12.99

Nip + Fab Glycolic pads

These are radiance-boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid retexture and resurface skin whilst witch hazel helps to tone. This moisturizing formula with hyaluronic acid and soothing blue daisy helps to reveal brighter and smoother looking skin.

  • glycolic acid retextures + resurfaces
  • hyaluronic acid moisturises + refreshes
  • blue daisy soothes + calms

I really enjoyed using these pads. I think my skin looked cleaner & brighter after using them. They didn’t dry out my skin and they were also gentle on my skin. I even washed my face and used one of these after and stuff was on the pad! Though my cleanser is black, so it could have been that but still, extra cleanser shouldn’t be on my skin anyway.  These do a great job at cleaning & gently exfoliating.  Another one you should try. These are also great for travelling since the container is a screw on cap.

Kale Fix Clay Mask $9.95

nip + fab kale fix

A super-charged nourishing clay face mask enriched with minerals and witch hazel, works to draw away impurities without drying the skin. The addition of an advanced moisture complex helps to restore the skin’s natural barrier function & regulate water loss to increase hydration for the skin to leave it feeling touchably soft with a fresh glow.

Remember when Kale made it into our lives? There is a reason for the hype sinceits packed with vitamins and so is this clay mask. Its rich in vitamins K, A, & C to help reninvigorate your skin.

It also has watcress extract to help retain maximum softness & elasticity.

Its easy to apply and spread to your face.  I applied an even layer to my skin and left it on for 10 minutes. As I wore it , it started to disappear on my skin. Then when I splashed the water on my skin it turned to a creamy milky texture. This left my skin really soft & fresh feeling.

Bust Fix Night $16.25

Bust Fix

A light serum to visibly plump + firm the appearance of skin around the bust + décolleté. Bust Fix is a revolutionary formula packed with fast acting mangosteen extract. With ingredients to reshape and sculpt as well as firm and tone, this serum is perfect for those whose skin has lost elasticity. I’m not sure if it made my breasts more plump , it was really moisturizing. The smell is very nice & relaxing too. It absorbed nicely without leaving skin feeling greasy or sticky.

#RealTalk Applying moisturizer to your breasts is a great way to feel for lumps.

Rodial Liquid Liner $28

Rodial liquid Liner

This felt tipped liner pen , easily glides on smooth. With great color pay off & long wear it will make any look you try do do effortless. It’s water resistant & quick drying. It made applying the liner so easy.

Rodial skincare & makeup review

I’ve never heard of Rodial brand before but the founder of the brand does have another company I am familiar with, Nip + Fab. I like their glycolic dragons blood cleansing pads & plump mask.   The difference between the 2 brands is Nip + Fab is for late teens & early 30’s addressing taking care of the skin and preventing the first signs of aging lines taking you into your late 20s.

Rodial has a more sophisticated formula that addresses skin from early 30 to 40s and 50s & is packed with anti-aging ingredients.

I received a great package with some skincare & make up to try & play with.

Rodial STEMCELL super-food facial oil $80

RodialStemcelloil.JPG

The formula is rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, B5, C and E to maintain a healthy glow while protecting your skin. I added this to my morning routine and do notice a healthy glow after applying. It also leaves my skin soft and moisturized. Just add 2-3 drops and massage into the skin. Follow with your normal routine.

This is my favorite of the bunch. It just made my skin look healthy.

Rodial peel off freeze & smooth Snake Mask $83

 

Rodial Snake Mask

It has an anti aging ingredient, syn-ake . Which is a synthetic protein fragment that replicates part of the venom of the Malaysian Temple Viper, to help relax the muscles & reduce wrinkles. . Amino acids and liquorice brighten skin tone while enriched minerals deep cleanse and purify pores to remove excess oil, dirt and impurities.

Key Benefits:

  • Syn-Ake Dipeptide (snake-venum inspired peptide): Reduces mimic wrinkles.
  • Kaolin French Clay: Draws out impurities and excess sebum, while reducing enlarged pores.
  • Pomegrante Ellagic Tannin: Firm and tone the skin.
  • Liquorice Extract: Reduces the appearance of age and sun spots.

My thoughts:

 It was hard to squeeze out of the tube but pretty easy to spread on my face. The scent wasn’t pleasant and a little strong while applying but not as it was drying. I waited 15 minutes and peeled it off . It came off really easy and left little on my skin. My skin did look brighter immediately and even when I woke up. I’ll have to use it  more but I did like the results the first try. For the price though I don’t think its something I would get in the future just because it was annoying to squeeze out and the smell while applying wasn’t the best. 

Smokey Eye Sculpt Eyeshadow Palette $40

Rodial Eyeshadow palette

This palette has 6 neutral shades. 5 are matte & one is a shimmer/pearl. Perfect palette to take you from day to night.

Rodial eyeshadow palette

The compact is small enough to fit in your purse. The colors are pigmented.

Shade one which didn’t really show on my arm because I’m so pale ( haha) is great for a base, inner corner of eyes, or highlighter for the brow.This one does a feel a little more chalky compared to the other shade

Shade 2 is also a great base color

shade 3 is my favorite. the shimmery golden brown color. Perfect to take your look from day to night.

Shade 4 is a dusty brownish color

Shade 5 is a dark brown

Shade 6 Is a nice black

 

Instaglam Compact Deluxe banana powder $57

Rodial Banana Powder

This is a yellow toned versatile powder that suits a range of skin tones. The formula corrects surface redness and pink undertones while neutralizing blue under eye circles. This mattifying powder can both set your makeup and contour. The main function of banana powder is to act like a highlighter, to enhance your facial contours with a mattifying highlighted finish to the face.

I like putting this around my eye area. Since I’m pale you can see veins more easily and this helps neutralize the area giving me a flawless finish.

Smokey Eye Pen- black $21

Very creamy and bold. Easily glides on. Bold color.

Rodial Eye Pencil
