[REVIEW] Puras Essential Oils | Dragon's Blood Antioxidant Skincare


Dragon's Blood Antioxidant Skincare by Puras

Hey friends! Today I'll be sharing a little obsession that I've been having lately. Being a mother and all, I tend to lean towards drug-free alternatives, especially when it comes to skincare and mental health. When I found that Puras provided just that, I was instantly hooked on what they have to offer. I had the privilege to meet the founder herself at their store in Bangsar Village, and I was uplift by her story of how Puras started. Started off with the need for a natural remedy for self-treatment, and then it grew into a non-carcinogenic and non-toxic approach in formulating natural healing products. If you have a stressful lifestyle and you would want to skip the pills, be sure to check out what Puras Essential Oils has to offer.

Just some of the different kinds of essential oils offered

Available in different sizes as well

Before you think that Puras offers only Essential Oils, let me clarify to you that it does not mean that they only offer Essential Oils, but also formulations of roll-ons, body care, and skincare as well that revolves around the natural healing benefits of essential oils. I've been an advocate on essential oils myself, and I found that Puras offers more than what I need when it comes to the variety of products that they have. Trust me, you can just walk into the store and tell them if youre emotionally stress, or if your house is infested with ants, they have the thing just for you to make your troubles go away. 

Presenting to you the Dragon's Blood Skincare

Essential oils have been known to be the natural treatment during the traditional days and have been preferred by many when it comes to maintaining good health. But today, essential oils have grown into an innovative industry especially during this time of era, and they can be implemented in your household as an anti-bacterial spray to catering to your skincare needs. Talking about skincare, today im sharing with you an exciting discovery I found about Dragon's Blood. Other than the name being very ancient, this Dragon Blood is actually a miracle healing tree found in Socotra, Yemen, and has been known to be the queen of the forest for its endless healing benefits.

Its sap is harvested from the Croton Lechleri tree and contains a broad range of naturally-occurring compounds, many of which have been wellstudied. The sap is rich in protective antioxidantsphenols with 2.8mil ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value. Due to these compounds, the Dragon's blood sap helps to protect the cells of the skin and prevents sun damage. The sap also contains a group of compounds called proanthocyanidins,the lattice-like main protein that makes up much of our tissues. Additionally, Dragon's blood contains taspine, a known skin cells healing agent. This is why Dragon's blood is so widely used on problematic skin conditions of all kinds with great success. Puras actually offers Dragons Blood Skincare and I just had to find out myself on how good it is.


Brought this whole set home, and i couldn't wait to review it.

The range of skincare that Puras offers for this would be a face wash, an antioxidant moisturizer, an antioxidant cream, and an antioxidant sleeping mask. Starting off with their face wash, the Dragon's Blood Anti-Aging Face Wash claims that it cleanses impurities while enveloping the skin with silky smoothness. I actually gave this a go, and I am beyond impressed with the after cleansing effect! It may sound a little too good to be true but after washing my face with this cleanser, my skin seemed to be a tone lighter at the very least. The logic behind this? I believe it removed my dead skin pretty well without drying out the skin, but instead, it hydrates the skin, leaving it to be cleansed and freshly hydrated. Period, the best cleanser I've reviewed this year!

Dragon's Blood Face Wash

Gel-like texture and doesn't foam up like usual cleansers do. 

The experience of after cleansing would be that i do sense that my skin looks brighter after cleansing

To complement the cleanser, it's recommended that you apply the Dragon's Blood Moisturizer which is high in antioxidants and anti-aging properties. Infused with Chamomile and Geranium Essential Oil, not only that it smells relaxing, but it also improves skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles, while leaving your skin feeling soft and supple as well. The texture is smooth of the cream is lightweight and smooth, and upon application, it glides smoothly onto the skin without leaving any sticky residue. Just the kind of moisturizer I need. 

Dragon's Blood Moisturizer

Dragon's Blood Cream

Both offer moisturizing results, but the cream has a thicker consistency compared to the moisturizer

Alternatively, if you have dry skin, or in need of some extra hydration, I would recommend you to get the Dragon's Blood Cream instead. The cream has a thicker moisturizing texture in comparison to the Dragon's Blood Moisturizer, and other than providing hydration, this is a great cream to reduce pigmentation and to also diminish signs of aging. Since i have oily-combination skin, i usually apply this when im most of the time indoors, as it does a pretty good job in keeping my skin well hydrated throughout the day. 

Dragon's Blood Sleeping Mask

Has a gooey like texture, to be left on the skin overnight for maximum results

It may feel a little sticky upon application, but it slowly dries up without drying the skin. 

To give your skin more love when the body rest, the Dragon's Blood Sleeping Mask is just the sleeping mask you need. To be applied once a week, it provides intense antioxidants and anti-aging benefits while you sleep throughout the night. Formulated with Dragon's Blood, Sea Cucumber and Apple Stem Cells, these ingredients would help the skin rejuvenate and recover, in result giving the skin a well-rested appearance the next morning. I tried this out, and my oh my, I woke up feeling like my skin just got out of a facial treatment. If your skin is having a bad day, you have my word when i say that this sleeping mask would do just the trick!

Testers are available in stores for you to try before purchasing

As a verdict, I would have to say that despite the hefty price tag, I emphasize that every penny spent is worth it! The formulations to create these products are the real deal without going around the bush, and most importantly, give actual results. I love the idea that with this skincare, it completes my skin needs in hydrating, moisturizing, repairing, age-defying and brightening, making it the one complete skincare that i need. Being a mother now, i tend to lean toward natural choices of skincare that does not use preservatives and chemicals, and the Dragon's Blood Skincare pretty much fits the bill. If you want to get a feel of their products, you can always head on over to their store in Bangsar Village to have first-hand experience, and the rest is history. Trust me, you would not regret.
