Rodial is king when it comes to controversial names (Crash Sticks and Skin Bleach, anyone?) and exciting skincare ingredients. Cue Dragon's Blood Gel Sculpting Gel, £75, which has both.
The ingredient Dragon's Blood isn't taken from the inside of a mythical creature (surprise, surprise) in fact Dragron's Blood is sourced from the 'sangre de drago' tree in the Amazon. The sap resembles blood, thus the name. The ingredient protects skin from enviromental damage and contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
From April the popular product will expand to a full line including Hyaluronic Moistursier, £45, Hyaluronic Mask, £35, Eye Gel, £40, Toning Spritz, £29 and Cleansing Water, £25. All containing Hyaluronic Acid (a powerful hydrating ingredient) and the Dragon's Blood the products work to plump up the skin and keep it moisturised without the need for heavy concoctions.
The Rodial team is also busy working on a facial to go with the line; I'm a big fan of the existing A-List Facial and the Nip and Tuck body treatment - two spa treatments that left me with impressive visible results that lasted longer than day.
