Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Cleansing Pads

I was lucky enough to win a twitter competition with the lovely and wonderfully generous Paula from TheLDNDiaries! I’ve never won anything before and so when I discovered I had won a skincare item from the top of my Must-Try list, I was over the moon! They arrived about 2 days after Paula sent them to me, and naturally, I ripped open the package immediately and took photos for the blog before I could try them! #bbloggerproblems

First of all, I adore Nip + Fab’s packaging. There’s something about their logo with the ‘+’ sign (I don’t know, I get excited over weird things) and their minimalistic colour blocking style. This pot has a screw-top lid to keep your cleansing pads safe, and fits nicely in my skincare drawers. You get 60 of these circular little pads soaked in the ‘dragon’s blood’ per pack,. They usually retail for £9.95, which is a little on the steep side in my cheapskate opinion, and something I would have really needed to convince myself to buy. Having said that, now I’ve tried them, they’re definitely something I’d invest the tenner in again!

The pads themselves are ridged but soft cleansing pads “enriched with salicylic and hyaluronic acids which are designed to deeply cleanse pores and provide long-lasting hydration for skin that appears plumper.
Witch hazel helps reduce the appearance of imperfections leaving the complexion looking smoother + refreshed.” 
Now, anti-ageing, plumping effects aren’t best tested on me, as luckily at 19 I’ve not got any real wrinkles to speak of and I feel like my skin is plump enough for now! However, I do feel like my skin feels instantly refreshed after using these, and I’ve definitely noticed a reduction in the frequency of spots on my skin. 

I love to use these after I get in from a long shift at work. I simply remove my makeup using a cleansing wipe or micellar water, then use my Dragon’s Blood pad in circular motions to deeply cleanse. It’s a no-rinse deal, so I love it for laziness, and the results are clear! 

Again, a huge thanks to Paula for her fab giveaway! It allowed me to discover a brand I’d been dying to try but hadn’t ever got round to purchasing! Have you tried Dragon’s Blood by Nip + Fab? If you’ve reviewed it, leave me a comment and I’d love to hear about your results!



  1. These sound great! I'm quite lazy with skin care and normally just take my makeup off with wipes and that's it. Something like this is perfect because it's so quick and easy to use!
