- Lips in need of hydration
WHAT TO KNOW:
- Perfect for those days you need to pamper your lips
- Leaves lips feeling rejuvenated
- Feels comfortable on lips, not heavy as a sheet mask
When we pamper ourselves…we go all out. After a Christmas dinner of endless kisses and sips of wine, our lips need a break. What better way to soothe our lips with dragon’s blood? Maybe that didn’t sound right. Rodial has an entire line using dragon’s blood. We discussed their moisturizer in a previous post. It was only natural to give this a try. Full disclosure: I thoroughly enjoy sheet masks. I’ve even tried the Sephora hand sheet mask. It’s a bit much, I know but this is what I do; I try things that sound weird. Why wouldn't I want to try something with dragon's blood in it?
Dragon’s blood is in fact a plant extract (from a South American tree, to be precise) which repairs dry skin, thus making it ideal for worn-out lips. There’s also hyaluronic acid which is a term thrown around for quite some time now for those interested in getting a fuller pout. So if all this is offered in a sheet mask, rest assured I’ll be the first to purchase it. I got my hands on the package deal of 8 when in London last May. This lip mask promises a fuller pout with an instant moisture boost and comfort. I stored the masks in the fridge and decided I’d use one after a long, salty day at the beach. Much to my surprise, I was instantly impressed by how soft and hydrated my lips felt. The instructions read to leave it on for about 15 minutes which I followed and then massaged any residue on my lips. Keep in mind, there’s ton of product left in the package so be sure to scoop that out too. I loved the feeling it left on my lips.
There’s been recent buzz regarding this product when KKW posted a few selfies swearing by this product. I figured this would be the perfect time to discuss the product and share my personal opinion too. It does in fact hydrate my lips, especially if they are dry and worn out. As far as a fuller pout goes, I can't say I saw some type of result. And let's be honest, it's not as if I can do this every single day; each sheet mask costs $9.
Final verdict: If you're interested in moisturizing your lips, keeping them hydrated and cared for, I think this mask will do wonders for you. If you're only interested in plumping your lips, I fear you might be disappointed.
Has anyone else tried this mask out? Do you think it's a bit on the extra side to have sheet masks for lips? Sound off in the comments below!
- Gently exfoliate your lips beforehand.
- While you're at it, multimask. Go for some under-eye patches.
